Re: NordVPN doesn't always autoconnect

My friend used Mint 18.3 Xfce edition, and autoconnect worked perfectly for her. She noticed that after upgrading to 19.3 Cinnamon, her autoconnect no longer connected every time after startup.

I am interested to hear what NordVPN tells you.

Re: Running Very Slow after Upgrade to Linux Mint 19.

Flemur could be onto something. I use 18.3 on a weaker laptop that was still sorta new when 18.3 released. For some reason it just seems to work better, or it is better suited to that generation of hardware, or something along those lines. I use 19.3 on my main laptop, but 18.3 xfce seems to have be...

Re: Corona virus (COVID-19)

I have been playing Final Fantasy XIV. It takes all my time and energy off being stuck alone in my apartment every day. Here is a productive, educational interview with Dr. Fauci which cuts to the chase in 13 minutes. https://youtu.be/8A3jiM2FNR8 I find it comforting to hear him speaking so rational...

Re: Super annoying high pitch noise in new computer

Some people consider themselves the forum police. Maybe they were also hall monitors in school. It's not like you are messing with us on purpose. You're just trying to get your issue fixed. I see posts like this as a drop in the ocean of information for future users. Like you said, maybe it could so...

Re: what are the Most Used keys on our keyboards?

it is difficult to write 40 wpm on a typewriter like that. much respect to you, sir. even on the ibm selectric ii, which struggled to keep up with me, i don't know if i averaged 40 wpm. it was always a question of watching the typewriter finish typing a sentence after i stopped typing. just watching...

Re: Corona virus (COVID-19)

I am a 30-something man living in Brooklyn. Of the five boroughs of New York City, Brooklyn has the most confirmed cases right now. It is dead silent here. It is very creepy. I am a reclusive shut-in, so besides not going to work, I won't really be seeing any difference besides the entire city being...

My constant struggle with "file name too long" error when downloading torrents

Sometimes when downloading via deluge or transmission, I get the error 'filename too long.' I can resume the torrent, but it happens again a few minutes later. How do I prevent this error from occurring entirely? It makes for a terrible experience checking on the torrent every few minutes until it c...

Wouldn’t it be rad if Red Bull sponsored Mint? and we saw Red Bull over it like it was NASCAR.

Re: Controversy surrounding Mint sponsor, Private Internet Access

I would like to make my position a little more clear. I do not care what PIA does with their software. That is their business. My only point of contention is that their donations to Mint should not influence choices made in the design of Software Manager (namely, to put PIA on the frontpage, many ti...

Re: Controversy surrounding Mint sponsor, Private Internet Access

I have been interested in this subject since I first discovered PIA is a leading donator to the Miint project, and is also featured in the Software Manager. I've been aware since 18.x of PIA donating money to the project. I am aware Clem says donations do not steer decisions to include features. He ...

Christmas will be here before you know it, and so will Mint 19.3! Whether it's a feature, or your specific plans, I'm interested to know what you guys are excited about. I am personally excited about the upgrade to Xfce 14.4. I'm also curious about Celluloid. Re: video player I've noticed that with ...

Smallest/most obscure reason you've ever changed distros?

I am switching out distros on my laptop - the only machine I can use for two weeks - because 19.whatever is the one that plays more games. I am on LMDE3 normally, except all my gaming rigs are packed up and this laptop is literally the only thing I can use, after water leaked in and destroyed my stu...
