Re: Birthday gift for me [System 76 Darter Pro]

I think you will be right unless mint ship a linux 5.5+ kernel or build a sytem76 driver package re your wifi anyway.

Really enjoying your thread and updates, unfortunately most likely more than you are.

Re: With Clipit being depreciated best clipboard manager for cinnamon?

My bad, I've not tried a 20.04 ubuntu system. When I installed Clipit on debian testing it pulled down Diodon. https://packages.debian.org/bullseye/clipit Diodon is a replacement for ClipIt, which is no longer supported. This package may be safely removed after the migration to Diodon is complete. J...

With Clipit being depreciated best clipboard manager for cinnamon?

Clipit I like, and other than it crashing/hard locking if you use one of its hot keys when the Clipit preferences window is open it's awesome. Diodon as far as I can tell is the Clipit debian replacement but only allows 100 entries. Thinking ahead to mint based on 20.04 what should we be using as a ...

Re: Birthday gift for me [System 76 Darter Pro]

Yes, I asked, and was told to us Pop OS, because Mint is not supported. I’m waiting for mint 20 for now. MurphCID, Sorry to hear that. Disappointing if they didn't fully explain why, ie whether it is to do with their coreboot build or just mint 19.03 being old (I did see that you tried newer kernel...

MurphCID, Your laptop does look very nice, not sure if I'd like PopOS with gnome much either. One of the videos you posted says System 76 are fairly approachable: https://youtu.be/ZVFY9KeLLhc?t=643 Have you asked them for help/advice installing mint 19.3? Have you tried a newer distro say Manjaro, F...

Re: Solved: Possible to install glibc 2.29 for Crossroads Inn game?

Thanks xenopeek, I bought it on steam, apparently ubuntu wise it needs a 19.04+ base. After thinking about what you said I requested a refund from steam as I'm not prepared to potentially wreck my current install. If I had more free time I'd be more experimental, but am too happy with my current set...

Thanks Euan, I tried your way but doesn't work, an all.tif file is created but is only 8 bytes, and obviously won't be converted. That's annoying, my test involved creating 3 separate images (just plain colour rectangles and exporting to tif via the gimp). tiffcp -a *.tif all.tif Didn't have any is...

Re: No Ethernet connection

Did you try from windows shutting down and then cold booting to linux?
If that still doesn't work left click on the mint network connection icon and disconnect then click on reconnect.

Good luck.

I love questions like this. Assuming there is nothing wrong with your tif files try to add all of the tif files into one ie append and then convert to pdf. Out of interest I tried this with 3 tif files I created and it works, I also couldn't using tiff2pdf add multiple images as it says adding multi...

Re: Possible to limit Alt scroll wheel to active monitor?

Still don't get why this is a thing as it's crazy when you have 2 or more monitors and just want to zoom in on one screen.
The other screen you are generality reading text from zooms in as well.
Just bugs me as it defeats the whole purpose of it being an accessibility feature.

Tmux running a script from boot (idiot user question).

I apologise in advance as this is probably a very stupid question. That said this is apparently the correct section to post "no question is too stupid to ask". Basically I'd like my (non gui), file server on reboot/recovery from a power cut to open an instance of tmux and have for example: java -Xmx...

Fix (For me anyway): Turn off Window effects in Settings/Effects and reboot: This problem plagued the devs and a number of users, including myself, for some time.

Interesting to know. Kind of wonder since it's obviously an issue why window effects aren't turned off by default or something mentioned in the release notes. I'm saying that re the release notes which would be a mute point in my case as I didn't read them. Initially I was concerned that my gpu was ...
