Re: google meet or formaly hangouts

Ugh! This is starting to sound like another failed attempt to code for PulseAudio. I assume this is a browser app? Which browser are you using (insert Firefox here I'm betting) and have you tried another browser? Yes it is indeed a browser app. And yes I am using Firefox. Indecations are that all w...

Hi chazb,

Is it garbled on your end, their end, or both?
My end.
Pulse Audio will clear up 85% of it, but it also cuts off the audio in Google Meet.

Re: software manager

Well guys, sense I am not a Linux guru, downloading back-ends and attaching to GUI front-ends to programs is out of my league. Does any body know of a program that does the same thing as Autotrace? That works in linux?

Just as a quick troubleshoot - check if it does that when booting up from LiveMint or, even easier, if it is a portable mouse you are talking about and not a trackpad/scroll on a laptop, try it on a different computer to see if the mouse is the problem.

Zoom in, zoom out, mouse problem

LM 18.3 Sylvia, xfce
For no apparent reason the scroll wheel on the mouse will start to zoom in and zoom out, this has become most annoying. Is there a fix for this?

Re: Is there a record of package upgrades?

Well the reason I asked is, a couple of month ago at the end of an upgrade I got a UTF-8 Warning at the end of the upgrade, and I wanted to go back and look at it, as there was a word in it, that I didn't understand and I wanted to google the word to find out its meaning.

Is there a record of package upgrades?

Does Linux Mint keep a record of all or at least recent upgrades and updates, in its file system?

Re: Control+shift+u has stopped working

I think I have solved the problem. In IBus Preferences under the General Tab>Keyboard Shortcuts>Input Methed click on the three little dots box and delete anything that doesn't say control shift. And insure that control shift is the key board input method. A self-explanatory box will appear. When yo...
