Re: gm10's Linux Mint Tools PPA

you're safe there, my friend. i trust you to make a better judgement on symbolic icons than the whole GNOME/GTK developer team :lol: what i meant is if you take away the user ability to change icons, they better be darn good looking and practical. seems gnome wants to do away with all icons and hav...

Re: no audio captured with USB HDMI capture device.

if you get no audio from hdmi the first thing to try is unplug your hdmi wait a few seconds and plug it back in. in Terminal run pulseaudio -k and wait about 6 seconds for the new sound cookies to be regenerated and last it seems that opening the sound settings kickstarts audio. click your volume ic...

Re: MInt and AMD: The desktop freezes almost within 15 seconds

Re: gm10's Linux Mint Tools PPA

hey gm10
i'm trying to test out amdgpu-pro but it needs kernel 4.15. when i click install in the update manager linux kernel section nothing happens. do you think this is a ppa issue or ubuntu? are the kernels in your script coming from mainline only?

Re: Problem logging in my Gmail account

if you live in Asia you are probably censored. Google just spent last year with the Chinese government teaching them how to censor you. surprised ?

change your DNS and try again. try 1.1.1.1 if not you might as well try the google 8.8.8.8

Re: Kodi 18.3 crashes at startup in Linux Mint 19.2 "Tina" Cinnamon Edition

works fine here mint 19.2 cinnamon, ryzen3 with 18.3+git20190621.1610-final-0bionic once you have your nvidia working properly and higher resolution monitor maybe it'll work for you too. i'm actually impressed that kodi buffers very well now, and no need to mess with advanced_settings.xml huh!

Re: Kodi 18.3 crashes at startup in Linux Mint 19.2 "Tina" Cinnamon Edition

I already use the latest kodi version 18.3 to my laptop...an old Dell 1537, with a new ssd drive, and it works flawlessly!!! That's why I insist about the newest version...I know it works!!! If I change the gpu driver kodi works just fine but I don't have the correct resolution (1280x1024) for my m...

Re: Kodi 18.3 crashes at startup in Linux Mint 19.2 "Tina" Cinnamon Edition

linux mint offers kodi 17.6+dfsg1-1ubuntu1 because that's the stable version. if you installed kodi 18.3 you need to go to the kodi forum and ask for support there. Do you suggest me to install an older version? I don't think so... something is going on with the gpu drivers most likely!!! I'm gonna...
