Re: Sound settings keep switching output against my will

Before I ever got around to trying teaswigger's suggestions, I went into preferences/power management and set everything to "never". I haven't had audio trouble since.

Add the xrandr command to Startup Applications. Click the Add button and select Custom Command.

Re: Cannot get TV overscan compensation on a NUC PC with Intel Graphics

While updating to 18.3, I moved from mdm to lightdm.(for some reason that seemed to fix my audio problems) How can I make xandr changes to overscan permanent without mdm?

4.13.0-32 is really slow

I followed Xenopeek's guide "How to update your kernel for Meltdown and Spectre" https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=90&t=261343 Now everything is running super slowly. When I use grub to boot with the 4.10.0-30 kernel, it works much better. Is there a way to speed up the new kernel, or sho...

Re: Sound settings keep switching output against my will

Today, diff works.txt broken.txt gave me this: 44c44 < Mono: Playback [on] --- > Mono: Playback [off] As before, the sound setting had changed itself from "HDMI/DisplayPort Built-in Audio" to "Analog Output Built-in Audio". Switching it back had no immediate effect. I poked around in QasMixer, but c...

Thank you for these instructions. The folder "rules.d" appears to be empty. Should I try to create a file?

Thank you, Flemur, for continuing to try to help me. I've started to follow your instructions. I haven't had success yet finding a difference between works.txt and broken.txt -- I'll keep experimenting. The situation with my audio continues to get stranger. Now for example, Firefox youtube audio wor...

Re: Sound settings keep switching output against my will

I figured out how to install Pavucontrol. It's nice, but not a panacea. Intermittent audio trouble persists which Pavucontrol doesn't solve. I'm considering trying out different kernels, but not sure which ones to try.

Bluetooth default to off on startup [SOLVED]

Hi, I'd prefer Bluetooth to be turned off by default. I found instructions on how to do this by "Editing /etc/bluetooth/main.conf to change InitiallyPowered to true", but that apparently doesn't work in Cinnamon 18.1 Please, what is the new method? I'm tired of turning off Bluetooth every time I sta...

Re: VLC has psychotic small menu font size

Sorry: Mint 18.1 Cinnamon 64 bit, kernel 4.10.0-21 on an Intel NUC6CAYH connected to a Samsung SP-R4232 via hdmi. It's funny, in conflating "open source" with Linux, I'd always imagined Videolan was a flagship mainstay of the Linux community, like Firefox and Open Office. I guess I was wrong about t...

VLC has psychotic small menu font size [SOLVED]

VLC's menu font is illegibly tiny, making the program nearly unusable, especially as an htpc interface. I tried following these instructions to install qt4-qtconfig, but that did precisely nothing. Mo' Linux= Mo' Problems

Re: Sound settings keep switching output against my will

Just spent another hour going through this thread, copying and pasting and getting error messages. No luck. It's terrifying; I have no idea what I'm doing. The 18.1 release notes suggest installing "pavucontrol", but it doesn't exist in the Software Manager".

The sound now turns itself off and on seemingly at random. Linux is so buggy!

Re: Kodi: Exiting Full Screen results in Black Screen

I've learned that the problem goes away if I plug the Nuc into the tv in the living room (Sony KDL40XBR4). The tv in the bedroom is a 2005 Samsung SP-R4232. The problem isn't just a full screen problem. The black screen also happens when I try to use mysql. Since the whole point of the Nuc is to be ...
