Re: Epson inkjet & Mint 20.2 - Colors misaligned

My hp printer prints a test pattern which I have to scan to fix alignment. Hard to believe it is a driver issue. Did you try the scan step?

EDIT: Can you test the printer on another device?

Enable key repeat?

Every so often (maybe 2-3 weeks) my keyboard keys stop repeating. I can correct by adjusting the 'repeat delay' in sys settings (pix below). Anyone else have this issue or any ideas on it?

TIA

Thanks for all your input, I uninstalled Zoom and reinstalled the .deb from the Zoom website. I'll see if it helps tomorrow I suppose.

Cheers!
Test it today if you want. PM me to get or send a link to test.

I am in Eastern time zone.

Re: Catastrophic sound failures in Zoom.

Appimage vs .deb???

Do not know about Appimage but the the .deb is Mint specific and they update it frequently (like twice a month)!

Good luck!

Re: Catastrophic sound failures in Zoom.

@Nobby023, I have been Zoom on LM 20 Cinnamon for over one year to teach classes. The only time I had an echo was when I tried to have two of my devices in the meeting at the same time, one as host and one as participant. Two devices close together create feedback. I have noticed this if one or more...

Re: How to draw simple arrows with XnView

@Flemur,
AFAIK, the only option is the line width.
You can adjust the thickness, style, direction, color, opacity. I have used these. They are on your screen image.

I have also used the program to crop and resize images. Neat program! I use xnviewmp.

Is there something else you want to adjust?

Re: Taskbar missing in Linux Mint 20.2

Can anyone suggest something to restore a missing taskbar? It is a panel, not a "taskbar". Go to the Menu button and search for the Panel app. Open it and the first option is "Panel Visibility". If it lists as "always show panel" then somehow your panel may have been d...

Re: Zoom slowing down

@Jamie,

Are you trying to capture the 'captions'? If so, I would disable that next time.

Is the host using the Zoom captions or a 3rd party?

Is it live transcription or just text captions?

Any other helpful info?

Just me apparently.
I would look for something else that is running on your system that is sucking up resources. Are you recording or logging anything? Perhaps other programs that are running?
Something is getting larger or using more memory?
Just guessing but maybe something will come to mind!

Zoom gets more and more sluggish and unstable.
Does affect you or everyone? Could it be an issue on the host system?

I will post the code shortly but for the moment I am using Zoom downloaded from the software app on Linux Mint. I am not using the web version. The live captions is built into Zoom itself.

Hallo Chris,

Ich mag deine Begeisterung für Linux Mint. Ich benutze es seit über einem Jahr und habe Windows aufgegeben. Ich glaube, Mint 20.2 wird in ein paar Wochen erscheinen.

Installed leaked beta in VMware. Surprised to see it boot & run. However, this is not the official, bloated release!
