Re: Linux Mint 20: issue after update

What, exactly, is your issue please? The output you posted did not list any errors, so we're lacking any real data to work with here. Those details could be handy, but with no context as to the real prob you're facing, we're spinning out wheels here

Re: Grub re- install permission denied

Why not simply use the Boot-repair tool on the live-install media? Simplest way mate

Re: Frequent System Freeze

Do you have any extra extensions installed? I worked out that the regular "pausing" my system was doing every 5 or seconds (very briefly, but annoying as hell when watching video, or gaming) seemed to not be an issue after I disabled the extra extensions i'd added. Annoying to not have access to the...

Re: Nothing Will Boot from USB

I have a box loaded with multiple hard drives, that refused to boot from usb with all the drives connected. I disconnected everything but the ssd i wanted to install to and it was able to boot from usb. I'm of the opinion it's a hardware issue, and an annoying one. I simply installed with only the s...

Re: Linux Mint 20 installation setup has no choice for setting the bootloader to which disk

Yes, it does. I literally reinstalled it just yesterday. It's at the bottom of the screen where it offers manual partitioning.

Re: Embedded album art is not displaying in FLAC or MP3 files in Nemo

I had the same issue after I messed up some video players in Linux Mint 19.2 but my problem got solved after I removed all the video players (through Synaptic Package Manager) from Linux Mint and just installed Xplayer from 'Synaptic Package Manager'. And I kept both Xplayer and VLC as my video pla...

Re: Embedded album art is not displaying in FLAC or MP3 files in Nemo

I've just opened a another thread on this issue https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=308026 This issue is that 19.3 doesn't ship with an thumbnailer that supports extracting the cover art from audio. 19.2 and earlier did (the thumbnailer was provided by xplayer) THat never even occurre...

Re: Embedded album art is not displaying in FLAC or MP3 files in Nemo

THanks for the feedback guys. Been ill, and kinda let this slip to the wayside. With these pointers, i pulled celluloid, added xplayer back, and added tumbler thumbnailer for good measure. Refreshed Nemo, and yay, my album art thumbnails are back again. Much appreciate the pointer in the right direc...

Embedded album art is not displaying in FLAC or MP3 files in Nemo

As above. Currently running 19.3 Cinnamon. The album art shows fine in Windows file manager, and in Dolphin for PCLinuxOS, only choking in Nemo, for some odd reason. This did not used to be an issue, so quite puzzled. Booted back off the liveusb of 19.3 to check, in case some setting had changed, bu...

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...

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, ...

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 ...

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...
