[SOLVED] Stuttering video playback in LM20

System specs: Lenovo ThinkPad T430, 16GB RAM, 240GB SSD Since performing a clean installation of LM20 on my T430 I've noticed that video playback is very choppy. It appears to freeze every second or so. I've tested with YouTube and my cable provider's online streaming. Also have tested with an offli...

Re: Lock screen not working properly following upgrade from 19.3 to 20

I ended up just doing a wipe and fresh install. Just getting everything back to how I like it now…

Lock screen not working properly following upgrade from 19.3 to 20

I upgraded my laptop from 19.3 to 20 this morning. Since then, when I wake from sleep the lock screen does not display. Instead, it shows the contents of my desktop (the lock screen is actually active as I can't click on anything and if I type my password and press return it unlocks the laptop). I'v...

Re: Links to subforums

Yes, I could bookmark that particular subforum (although it goes against my workflow as I just have links to the index page of any forums I visit) if I really wanted to. I just thought it was an odd omission considering all of the other subforums have links on the index page.

Would it be possible to add links to the subforums of the "Desktops and Window Managers" forum to the forum index like with the other categories please?

The time setting isn't a problem on my dual boot computer: I look at my wristwatch when I want to know the time.
It probably wouldn't affect you anyway as you're in the UK so your time is set to GMT which is the same as UTC.

Re: Spotify

Thank you, Shiratori! What does the interface look like in Linux? Different from the usual? Is it convenient to use it? Can I use it for free or do I need to pay in the future? It looks pretty much identical to the Windows version. https://i.ibb.co/gP1gF64/Screenshot-from-2020-01-02-16-26-55.png

Re: Monthly News – December 2019

First, I noticed some of you regretted the removal of keyboard shortcuts in Cinnamon’s grouped window list. When we removed this feature, we assumed it wasn’t discoverable and so very few people were likely to use it. It looks like we were wrong, so we’ll bring this feature back. Thanks for the nic...

There's a Cinnamon update in Update Manager right now that restores the missing functionality. Nice fast turnaround by the developers. :D

[SOLVED] Super + number keys for panel icons

I've just done a clean install of 19.3 on a brand new SSD. On my old 19.2 setup I was able to launch/switch apps that I'd pinned to the panel using the super + number keys, the same way it works in Windows (it's a quite useful feature when you're used to it). Is there a setting that I've missed or h...

It's not a problem with the lid as it has the same behaviour when putting it into standby from the start menu.

Re: Laptop won't enter standby

Shiratori, are you using Cinnamon, Mate or Xfce? I have a Lenovo T430 as well, I am running LM19.2 Cinnamon and I dont have any problems with the lid closing and suspend. Just for clarity, hibernation is disabled by default in LM19/19.1/19.2 Perhaps there is a program that wakes up your computer? R...

Laptop won't enter standby

For some reason my Lenovo T430 running 19.2 has stopped being able to enter standby. I noticed it yesterday when I got home from work and got it out of my laptop bag and it was hot as it had stayed on despite closing the lid. I have tried a reboot and it initially worked but it has now stopped going...

Re: Will my computer explode when I press the wrong key? Newbie disaster stories.

I let the magic smoke out of my 48k Spectrum by plugging in the wrong barrel connector for the power. I accidentally plugged in the PSU for my NES. The Speccy was expecting 9v DC and didn't like the 9v AC that the NES PSU output. :shock:
