Re: Thumbnail view...

Open Nemo (the file manager), go up top to Edit, then Preferences, then to Preview. Where it says SHow Thumbnails, by default it's set to Local Files only, meaning files on your Mint install. Your external drive, etc, isn't that. To see thumbnails on it as well, switch it to Yes to see thumbnails on...

So, no one? I'm guessing I'll have to reinstall and try again if this can't be made to work

Re: Dropbox installer starts every time i log in.

Had to reinstall (windows drive failed, and figured a reinstall wouldn't hurt, i keep backups on an external drive), and fresh install works fine, no dropbox issue. Still not sure WHY it was an issue

Nemo is suddenly not displaying the embedded album art for my FLAC files

Linux Mint 19.1 Cinnamon, fully updated, fresh reinstall a couple days old, restored my backups of my ripped CD collection, all in FLAC with embedded album art. Until now the album art thumbnailed fine, but noticed earlier it's no longer doing so. Baffled. Deleted thumbnails folder, restarted Nemo, ...

Re: Nvidia GTX 970 and Mint Cinnamon 19.1, wishing to upgrade to 410 Nvidia drivers

Sorry for the late reply, i've come down sick and feel like death warmed up. Blergh. The issue turns out to be hardware related, seems i was scammed on the card, it's not a true GTX 970, it's an older card flashed to make it APPEAR to be one. I was ripped off, scammed. Currently using a frind's old ...

Re: Nvidia GTX 970 and Mint Cinnamon 19.1, wishing to upgrade to 410 Nvidia drivers

Yes, and as i literally just explained, I forgot to copy that due to pain and a fuzzy head from painkillers, so grabbed that log from the Logs app, so as to provide somehting at all. Had to remove the damn thing, again, and reinstall the 390 as the 20+ cinnamon crashes were driving me batshit insane...

Re: Nvidia GTX 970 and Mint Cinnamon 19.1, wishing to upgrade to 410 Nvidia drivers

THank you for your patience. I missed copying the install log as I was somewhat distracted by nerve pain at the time, and forgot. Apologies, but the pain and drugs (painkillers and Diazepam) makes me a bit ... foggy. This too failed, and back in software-rendering mode, which causes Cinnamon to cras...

Re: Nvidia GTX 970 and Mint Cinnamon 19.1, wishing to upgrade to 410 Nvidia drivers

Once again it did not work, and can't figure why. So had to remove and purge the 410, then go back to 390. Frustrating. I nsee so many saying it works for them, and it SHOULD for mine, but fails. I doin't know if i'm missing somehting, or it just hates me

You definitely have nfs-common installed on the machine? I've had a similar sounding issue before, and that turned out to be the missing culprit
