Re: After shutting down, audio through headphones fails, why?

No change. I do not know why, but shutting down the system, and unplugging, replugging the usb stick; then rebooting, sometimes, gets audio back through the headphones.

With or without audio on headphones, the files on the pulse folder are the same six files.

After shutting down, audio through headphones fails, why?

I do have linux mint both on the traditional HDD, and for the more private affairs, such as consulting my bank account or e-mail, I apply linux mint on a USB stick. Audio channelled through my headphones works well on both systems, but sometimes audio is not channelled through the headphones after r...

Re: Opening certain sites leads to crackling on audio

It is the combination of running video, and simultaneously opening certain sites on other tabs. This triggers the crackling on, when shutting down the video or closing the tab it is active on, the irritating tingling stops! I did try many headphones, but that is not it! If I unplug the headphones, t...

Opening certain sites leads to crackling on audio

When I open certain sites, crackling on audio starts. I do have to close the browser and reopen it to solve the problem. Why is this? Now it even happens on the linux mint site! I did close a tab on my browser where I was watching video, and now the crackling on my headphones has stopped! So, I was ...

Brother printers in 'pause mode'.

On a usb-connection the printers function fine, but on ethernet it is as if they are not connected, and are in 'pause mode'. The printers have been detected and each has its own ip-address. Trouble shooting gives the advice to enable:"Publish shared printers", but on the menu in "administration", "p...

Why 'UEFI Interactive Shell' on 2nd startup on VM?

After the installation of linux mint on VM, linux starts well, but after shutting down, and restarting anew; the system goes into: 'UEFI Interactive Shell'.

What is wrong about the path root?

cp '/UUID/home/user/Downloads/file .' is not accepted: "no such file or directory". What is not correct about the path? I was trying to copy a file from my HDD to a virtual machine folder.

Re: How to transfer a file from ubuntu to linux mint?

I did overcome my problem by two ways: Firstly, I applied a second usb stick with no operating system on it. I saved my work made on 'ubuntu try', then I did shut down, and started 'linux mint'. Second method: On 'ubuntu try' I did create the user I have on 'linux mint', and then logged in as the ne...

The file has been created in 'ubuntu try', owner:' Me' and location:/home/ubuntu/Documents. 'ubuntu' between 'home' and ' Documents' is the 'user'?

What file are you trying to transfer?
In this case it is a leafpad file, but it could also be a video file, for instance.

Wy don't you se the simply the grahical file manager on both sides?
