Why do I have to reboot after a day or two?

For at least a year now I think, I've found that firefox tends to get laggy over some time, and restarting it doesn't help, but rebooting does. Is it something to do with facebook or something else? Anyone else dealing with this?

Alsamixer gui is missing from menu

I installed alsamixer and can run the terminal command, but the gui option won't show up even with a search in the mint menu.

Re: Any musicians out there using Mint/Linux?

So quite a while back I installed and set up JACK. I don't even remember how I installed it and set it up (what site is good for that so I can do it for others???) I installed Rackarrak and got it working with Patchage for JACK, I still haven't properly learned how the wiring in Pathcage works, but ...

Re: Any musicians out there using Mint/Linux?

Brother in law, who is an EE (I'm a technician from another life) wants us to pick a kit from here:

https://buildyourownclone.com/

First and make something and see how it goes.

I will, when I can afford it, take advantage of those Linux supporting pedals.

Re: Can this happen (space getting used up)

I followed your instructions guys, thank you, I now have about 18 gig free space. We are ordering a bigger drive for him. I removed timeshift for now to keep things simple, not worried about losing data or install right now.

Thank you!

Re: Can this happen (space getting used up)

I'm in the CLI level 3 root. Running the du command with parameters. It's taking its time searching in the root directory.

In his home directory viber is using a bit of cache. Also Spotify Storage seems to be loaded up but I need to investigate how many subs there are once the du root is done.

Re: Can this happen (space getting used up)

He is brining the laptop so I can work on it. To boot into CLI, do I bring up GRUB and do CTR-X? And can I change timeshift settings from CLI?

Can this happen (space getting used up)

I gave my friend an old laptop that I put mint on and he's been slowly learning how to do GUI things. It appears that his drive has run out of space. I had already used recovery mode to clear space and then was able to run the GUI level that wouldn't run otherwise. I did a df command and the drive a...

Any musicians out there using Mint/Linux?

I play guitar, or rather, I used to be a decent guitarist and I'm rediscovering my abilities. I only have one electric guitar and a small amp and a xoom pedal, nothing like what I used to have. I'm wishing to chat with Linux musician types and discuss software, connectivity, hardware as relates to L...

Re: When running VM/Vagrant active, sleeping system won't awaken

Is that unavoidable or is there a keyboard sequence I need to know?

When running VM/Vagrant active, sleeping system won't awaken

It seems that if I have virtualbox OSs running and/or running Vagrant boxes, if I let my desktop go to sleep, I can't get it to wake up and can't figure out a key sequence other then ungracefully cold booting, to recover.
