Monitor Access

Not quite sure how to access the monitor. I've set the screensaver to initialize after 200 minutes. The only thing I see is a "Display" which seems to have nothing to do with the monitor. I'd like to stop it from shutting off automatically or adjust the time before it shuts off. I'm using Linux Mint...

The Custom Format is under Tooltip Format under Appearance, not Clock Options. Tried code there, but nothing changed. I have no rea...

Re: Date Not Displayed on Clock

At first you need to tell us the version of Mint and the desktop environment, we cannot know it. If you don't know open a terminal and enter: inxi -Sz Paste the output here. Yes, I apologize for that. I will remember to do so from now on. For some reason I did not receive a notification about your ...

Date Not Displayed on Clock

I, for some reason, am unable to have the date accompany the time on my clock in the right corner of my panel. I am unsure why. I see no way to set or unset its display in properties. What must I do?

Under system I found a "Login Window" where Auto-Login and Timed Login were both disabled. Problem solved. Thank you again for the help. :mrgreen:

Re: How To: Upgrade your kernel, painlessly.

IMHO, a far more useful step than changing kernels would be to increase your RAM. :) I'm doing that as well; for about 15 $ with shipping too. So, the 64 bit won't make my machine "powerful" as a friend of mine has claimed? :shock: Powerful? Not really, but that assessment depends upon what you are...

Re: How To: Upgrade your kernel, painlessly.

I'm not sure what kernel I would need or if I should even upgrade or not. I have a 64 bit machine with a duo and 1G of RAM, but running a Mint 17.3 32 bit. :?:

I ran the code through Terminal. Speed and many other items in list listed as "unknown." I have a program called hardinfo installed. Apparently this little netbook has two processors; both running at 1.66 Ghz, or 1667 Mhz. I swear, though, when I checked it last one was running at 1333 Mhz. Anywhom,...

Re: Macs can occasionally get viruses, but Linux..?

Very engaging and interesting thread. Suffice it to say, there is no need for anti-virus or internet security software for Linux. That's what I was looking for. I like scanning my computer; makes feel in charge of stuff, makes me feel tough, like an American!
