Re: 750 MB. WOW! "What would you do with SO MUCH hard disc space ?"

I'll beat that. My first 'puter was a genuine IBM XT , 8088 processor, with a 10 meg hard drive. The shop told me "you will never fill that hard drive." He was right!

Good ole DOS days!!!

Re: New Install of Mint 19 with no sound

I have the same problem in only one of my 3 computers. Worked fine in cinnamon 18.3. Will be watching this closely.
Alsa mixer did not help.

Re: Cinnamon menu opens on wrong monitor

I had a similar problem and after pulling my hair out for a week, I found in the startup applications the cinnamon settings daemon - xrandr was not on. This is in cinnamon 19.

Re: Move to and Copy to on xfce4 desktop

When you right click on a file and the selections drop down, look at the top right corner and you should see a +. Click on it and the other options will appear.
Good luck.

Re: Sound not working in Mint 18.3

I don't know if my experiences will help you or not, but here is what I did to get audio in 18.2/3. Clean installs of 18.2 or 3 would not give audio out with any combination of settings. When I go back and install 18.1 and unmute the line out in alsa mixer, I have good audio. I can then successfully...

Re: Line audio not working

I had to install ALSA mixer in order to unmute line out in 18.1 as it is muted by default. This process does not work with clean install of 18.2/3. Line out is also muted by default. The only way I can get line out with 18.2/3 is to install 18.1 and upgrade. Thank you very much for taking time to as...

Re: Line audio not working

If it works with 18.1 only, it looks like something has been left out of the newer versions. I hate to think I will have to start with a clean install of 18.1 and then upgrade to new versions forever. No telling what will happen when ver 19 comes out.

Re: Line audio not working BUMP

As stated above, nothing I do will pass line audio unless I install 18.1 first. Can update to 18.2 or 18.3 and have line audio output. A clean install of 18.2 or 18.3 gives no line output although I see line input. Is there possibly a driver in 18.1 that has been discontinued? Any help will be appre...
