Wireless goes down due to power management - LM XFCE 18.3 32bit.

Fresh LM XFCE 18.3 32bit system. Power management only set to reduce brightness to 90% with power plug connected, yet wireless dies like a dog every time the screen brightness is reduced. Very weird, is this a known issue?

Swap partition accidentally formatted on LM KDE Sylvia 64bit.

I am experimenting with Devuan Jessie/Ascii. For some reason, the Devuan installer selects all available swap partitions for formatting during the install procedure, and I didn't notice. Now, my LM KDE Sylvia system is soooo slooow in booting up. What can I do to solve this issue? BTW, the Devuan in...

I was interrupted while installing Linux Mint 18.3 Xfce onto a computer and the screen locked. Now I get prompted for a user name and password. What user name and password do I need to get back into the live install and complete the installation process? I simply don't understand the need for this a...

Re: pimsettingexporter AWOL on LM Sonya KDE.

Hmmm. I have solved this myself. The problem is that the items are hidden from the user. In my opinion, counter intuitive. The solution is to access the KDE Menu Editor and uncheck the "hidden entry" boxes for the items that you want to be able to see.

Re: pimsettingexporter AWOL on LM Sonya KDE.

I have now done some more digging and discovered that I can run both Korganizer, KAddressBook and pimsettingexporter from the terminal. I was able to import my data, which is what I set out to do. However, Korganizer, KAddressBook and pimsettingexporter and probably other bits still do not show up i...

Re: pimsettingexporter AWOL on LM Sylvia KDE.

Thanks for the quick reply. I should note here that I am using LM 18.3 Sylvia and not Sonya. I think you are missing a fundamental point - when the software manager states that a program is installed, I normally expect to find it in the application launch menu. Korganizer and KAddressBook are accord...

(SOLVED) pimsettingexporter AWOL on LM Sonya KDE.

Firstly, I would like to express my disappointment that LM is dropping KDE, particularly now, where I as a KDE newbie am starting to love it. My concrete problem is that I would like to import my personal info from a laptop running KDE Neon. I have looked through both Synaptic as well as Software Ma...

I am using the MuseScore 2.1 Appimage as a point of reference. The MuseScore AppImage has some special options available. Running it from the terminal with the install option should fully integrate it to the desktop environment. ./MuseScore-2.1-x86_64.AppImage install For more information see ./Mus...

Appimages in path - how?

I have tried Flatpacks and am not a big fan. However, I do like Appimages. Unfortunately, I can't figure out how to get the folder (user/bin) in path so that the Appimages will be added to the Cinnamon menu and the system will recognize Appimages as programs (right clicking files and choosing from p...

I have found some discussion on the forum about the pros and cons of flatpack, appimages, etc., ...

Secure boot is disabled in the BIOS and nothing has ever been installed using UEFI on these hard disks. My current Win 7 is also installed in legacy mode, on a separate HD.
