Re: Launch individual apps with 2x scaling disabled

I don't quite see your problem - why don't you just select Double (Hi-DPI) in the screen settings?

Anyway, on my laptop with only 3000 x 2000 pixels, Kdenlive looks like this:

Re: Mouse pointer changes to select icon and can't figure out how to unselect

Can you right-click in the panel and select "Troubleshoot"?
If so, you can try Restart Cinnamon or Restore all settings.

Ciao Bruce

Essentially the same programs are loaded, such as GIMP, Krita, LibreOffice, Vivaldi, etc. I couldn't determine a speed difference, whereby Windows has an advantage: Linux runs on an external SSD - Windows on an internal NVMe that is f...

Re: Install gnome-alsamixer

Enter the search term "alsa" in the Synaptic Package Manager - the mixer is available with or without a graphical UI.

Have you already tried the terminal command alsamixer ? At least for me the mixer appears - I wouldn't be aware that I had specifically loaded it.
