Re: Wanted: date-photo-taken in List View

This should be available with the nemo media columns plugin.

Try:

Code: Select all

sudo apt install nemo-media-columns
Afterwards in nemo under Edit --> Preferences --> List Columns, there should be a checkbox for 'EXIF Date' among other new options.

Re: decreasing file copy speed

Unless you have something particularly strange going on, this is the way data transfers work. The transfer rate that you see reported is not something you can really rely on. A basic explanation is that when you copy out data, it gets read from a source and copied to a buffer. The buffer fills up qu...

Re: Dragon's Lair on Linux Mint 20.1 Ulyssa

Nice work.

If you have the will and the time, it might help others if you made an installer script for Lutris for the CDROM version: https://lutris.net/games/dragons-lair/

Re: Proton - Steam

I noticed a few differences , the games were slower to launch ( don't worry they run just fine, if you have been trying like me this is normally a sign it wont load, it did for me). The lower perfromance at launch might be the issue of the shader cache. If I can try to explain it quickly (and proba...

Re: Proton - Steam

I was talking abut the drivers that I downloaded from the Radeon website. Basically there were two install scripts but only one would run. You don't want to do that. Unfortunately, it's a common thing for people who come from Windows to expect that you need to go and download some official drivers ...

Re: Proton - Steam

I could be working off of old information. But I think the problem is that you're running the 'radeon' driver. A lot of Proton games rely on Vulkan for DXVK (for DirectX games). If I remember correctly, you need ot be runnign the 'amdgpu' driver. This should not involve installing any special driver...

Re: How's the draw pad support on Linux?

I'm not any type of artist, but I do use a drawing tablet for some work stuff that involves some basic drawing. I have a Wacom tablet (a small one called the Intuos Comic). It works. Plug and play. No installation of anything necessary. From my understanding Wacom drawing tablets are generally well ...

Re: Copying the file for fixing the Bluetooth problem

My assumption would be that you don't have permission to copy the file to that location. In Nemo, if you right-click on the destination folder there is an option to 'Open as root' and you'll be able to drag and drop the file into the folder you want. But, it would probably be more helpful if you cli...

Re: What was your most hilarious mistake on a pc?

It's far from hilarious, but one of my earliest mistakes using a PC was when I accidentally uninstalled the mouse driver. It was probably Win95, or maybe even 3.11. I was a little kid, so I was in a panic trying to reinstall the driver without being able to use a mouse. I thought I completely destro...

Re: Do I need to reinstall all of my steam games?

That's a problem caused by Windows 'fast boot' option. It makes Windows shut down in a way that doesn't properly close the drive in order to allow Windows to boot faster. This causes a dirty bit to be set on the drive, which makes it inaccessible. What you need to do is boot Windows and turn off the...

Re: Do I need to reinstall all of my steam games?

Windows drives are formatted using NTFS. While you might have some success if you try to use Steam games installed on an NTFS drive, you will likely run into issues eventually. The best option to avoid issues, is to install your Steam games on a Linux partition (ext4). If you copy the data from the ...

Re: Left-Click on mouse

Another possibility is that your mouse button is worn out. Issues like this are usually a hardware failure.

If it is a fairly new mouse, Logitech is pretty good with returns. Or if you know how to solder you could replace the button.

Re: Moving files from old computer to new computer

Depending on how much of your various program settings you want to carry over, it is usually worth copying over the contents of ~/.config and ~/.local (or at least a subset of the contents of those folders).

Re: vivaldi + google "Couldn't sign you in"

Google does occasionally block alternate browsers. Vivaldi uses Chromium, which is the same base as Google's own browser Chrome, so there should be no reason to block it or suggest that it is insecure.

You're more likely to find answers on Vivaldi's forums: https://forum.vivaldi.net

I only skimmed the posts in this thread, so I might be repeating what some others have already said.

Re: Gaming on Linux Mint

It's a tough thing to answer because everyone is different. When I first started using Linux Mint about 4 years ago, I would boot to Windows for games. But Linux gaming has improved so much in that time that I haven't had to use Windows for years now. For me, most games work with little effort. But ...
