Re: Picard write issue with xfce 19.3

Thanks MrEen though I figured out that each file was write locked I had to change the access from read to read/write for each file. Had I looked on this post I would found a easier way good to know that command. what does the Rc mean? I have used this string before but not with the Rc.

Re: Picard write issue with xfce 19.3

This looks like a permissions issue for maybe mp3 files? How would I fix this if possible? I do not have a good understanding of user permissions yet.

Re: Picard write issue with xfce 19.3

The only place I see this error is on the Picard app when I try to save the mp3 metadata its at the bottom of the app.
Error [Errno] 13 permissions denied 'home/main/music/test music/mp3/'

I am testing Picard on Ubuntu 1804.3 see if the same error occurs.

Re: Solved: Xfce LM 19.2 Driver manager issue

Since this install was on my evaluation system I decided to use synaptic completely remove all the Nvidia driver 435 installation files and it worked back to the open-source driver now. Future fix for this issue. The driver manager is now normal and has the options it once did.

Re: Blu Ray burning - K3b - mkisofs crashes

This is a permissions issue for their backends of burning software open a terminal and type these one at a time. This happens on Ubuntu 18.04 also.

sudo chmod 4711 /usr/bin/wodim

sudo chmod 4711 /usr/bin/cdrdao


The top one is for k3b and the other just in case is for Brasero.

Re: Thinkpad X220 + docking station + Dell monitor = not working?

I think Thinkpads have a function key to change the display output. There is a certain Dport cable I think is needed. below link maybe help.

Re: Bluetooth won't connect to Beats Studio 3 Headphones

What application are you using Blueman or blueberry. I have found that installing blueman fixes most of the connection issues not that it will with a beats headphone set. look at what protocol is also being used for the transmit. I have two speakers and one using a different protocol then the other.

Lookup syslogs which I read somewhere that is not provided in the new version of bacula. I do not use this type of software I was reading a article but that was on Linux news.

Re: How to install Kernel 5.3 off flash

Linux mint and Manjaro are to very different distributions. If you use the update manager you can see all the kernels available. That said I would not install one that's not on the update manager list it can cause regressions. Look at this page

Xfce LM 19.2 Driver manager issue

Re: suspend doesn't work from menu or by closing lid

Depending on your brand and model not all laptops will suspend. But in the battery management there should be an option for what closing the lid does. Right click the battery icon on the panel.

Desktop environments

I installed LM cinnamon and I plan on installing mate DE. My question is would it be a good idea to use a different user account for mate and cinnamon DE, could one use a single file manager for both DE's? Pros and cons.
