Re: Name of the "Login" application in Settings?

In Settings of what? On my Mint Cinnamon 18.3 it's called Login Window in the settings. But it seems you want the package name? I believe that's 'Login'. In the settings of Login Window, you can switch HiDPI on lightdm. I've been looking for the package name and haven't been able to find it by sear...

Name of the "Login" application in Settings?

I'm configuring a laptop for my son whom wants to use Ubuntu. It has a HiDPI display and I have yet to successfully get gdm login to work with HiDPI. I know lightdm does since I use Mint 19, but I am unsure what the name of the "Login" application is so I can install the package on his laptop.

Re: Switching DE brings back old audio output issue....

How do you install a DE without one already in place, i.e. Cinnamon,XFCE, etc? Basically, you don't (unless you're experienced enough to deal with possible fallout). You install the Mint version that has the DE you want, and you stick with that. Yeah, that's what I'm here for. I've fixed this issue...

Re: Switching DE brings back old audio output issue....

Installing multiple DEs is actually one of the more common beginner mistakes, especially with something like Gnome 3. Sounds like you broke your OS. Unfortunately the usually recommended fix for such problems is a data backup and clean reinstall. SOrry but that's the way it is. Problems caused by t...

Switching DE brings back old audio output issue....

Fist, let me say...I didn't know how to phrase the subject so it would make sense. So, I had a problem awhile back where every time my computer would go to sleep, the default audio output source would switch from HDMI to Digital Out.

Re: GNOME3 question to satisfy my OCD

I've not heard of any extensions that can do that. Perhaps with a standalone additional dock like Docky, AWN or Cairo Dock? That would add a dock to the bottom of your screen. No idea if/how well such work with Gnome Shell or if that will give you want you need. As I write this I'm thinking it's a ...

Re: Digital assistants for Linux?

You mean a digital assistant like Siri? Not a well supported thing in Linux. The only one I can find is mycroft, and that's not a simple install. Seems like a work in progress. https://mycroft.ai/documentation/linux/ Yeah, that's all I found as well. There are others written about but can't find an...

GNOME3 question to satisfy my OCD

Is there anyway to add a second "favorites" bar or other type of dock in the "show applications" window? On my dash, I have my favorites. However, there are some secondary favorites that aren't quite worthy of putting there. What I'm looking for is something like a second, hidden dash that fits with...

Are there any that integrate well with Linux Mint 19? I couldn't find any widgets available or applications in the mint repo.

Logitech wireless K400 lag

My K400 is experiencing input lag out of nowhere. I'm not sure if there was a recent update to the driver or with solaar that I didn't notice, or something else. All of the sudden it started having lag today. I don't know how to measure it, but in the game Armagetron Advanced, which I play fairly re...

Re: Terminal issue

Was it coming up before? Did you try pressing "ctrl+alt+t"? Are you using Cinnamon? Can you press the Windows key and type "Terminal"? If you're using the default terminal in Mint 18, press "alt=f2" then type "gnome-terminal"

Sports game suggestions?

I'm curious if there are any decent 3d (or very good 2d) sports games out there for Linux. I'd prefer foss titles, but I'd be willing to pay for something if available. I didn't find much on steam and most of the stuff I found searching the software manager and googling were just team managing softw...

Hey guys! So yeah, first post. I just wanted to know how the Mint team takes Ubuntu/Debian and turns it into Mint/LMDE and the exact steps involved. I wanted to email the folks on the Mint team, but I suppose I'll try this first. I wanted to know how they did it so I could make my own derivative si...

ACPI Error/CPU soft lockup

Hey guys. I've popped parts of this error into Google and have found that this is an IOMMU error with the Ryzen chipset (Mine is a 2700U in this case), but I have been unable to find a fix for it. I should note that Fedora is the only OS that sees it and continues to function with it. I've tried a f...
