Re: Update to Firefox 60 killed it- anyone else?

[yes, I run Firejail, thanks for link!] AWESOME- I love Linux Mint and this community! I just knew others would have had the same issue. Now I can shut down Windows for the weekend after all! :-)

Re: After sleep Mint 18.3 64 Cinnamon won't shut down- Quit becomes logout-updated

Well, well well- niether REISUB nor Terminal would work, but I did learn something new testing- it Wakes and Quits fine after Suspend UNLESS I unplug it and take it inside while I run an errand away from the house- the reason I want Sleep[Suspend] to work in the first place. Also, I tried Restart in...

Re: After sleep Mint 18.3 64 Cinnamon won't shut down- Quit becomes logout

@ AZgl1500 Thanks for the new idea. I probably should have thought of looking for a terminal command, but I didn't. I will try both the ideas I have been given here to avoid damaging my machine with power key forced-off! If either or both work I'm good to go even if the GUI won't cooperate! I will t...

Re: After sleep Mint 18.3 64 Cinnamon won't shut down- Quit becomes logout

@absque fenestris (1) I am not even trying hibernate, it does not work on any of my three dual boot systems and I read over and over again it probably never will- just Sleep- so no, small swap is not a factor. (2) Thanks for reisub, I do have to use that all the time on the home xfce server- the gra...

Re: After sleep Mint 18.3 64 Cinnamon won't shut down- Quit becomes logout

@absque fenestris- Thanks for the reply. (1) Lenovo's automatic update suggested I install the new BIOS just the other day. I ignore these things for most programs I have, but not the hardware or browsers. Of course, afterwards I had to re-edit EFI boot order just for fun... However, the problem pre...

After sleep Mint 18.3 64 Cinnamon won't shut down- Quit becomes logout-updated

Hello all- this does not seem to fit well anywhere else, nor have I been able to find this exact issue searching online. It's not at all that it won't wake after sleep, it wakes the same as when I sleep on the Windows side, it's that Quit now functions as if it were Logout and there is no way to shu...

Two xfce 18.3 dual boot - media players crash opening video

Hi all- updating this with a bit of new info: (1) I verified again that all codecs are installed with Software Manager (2) I discovered both units will play music files- at least mp3 files- without a problem using the native media player I am a relative newbie, but having set up three dual boot syst...

xfce movie player crashes without opening files, same play fine cinnamon 64

Hi all, In both copies of Sylvia xfce 18.3 (and Sarah 18.0 before that) the movie player starts to open a file (various types) and closes up suddenly before doing so, but they play fine in VLC on the same two machines and and also natively- in what seems to be the same app- in Cinnamon 64 on a third...

Radeon video card won't come alive after screensaver time out

I'm updating this post because I have noticed it occasionally happens after the first time screensaver time-out suspends the monitor- though always 2nd time after waking up once. I know the system is running, the network printer still prints! The monitor can be cycled on and off but has no signal. I...

Re: syslog error of some sort on boot

@thx-1138, boot is quite fast, really fast considering it is an old XP P4 3.6 GHz box, but I'll follow your links anyhow just because it is fun to learn. Same thing (sys.log) is failing to find two setserial folders, almost the first few lines of boot, but I have removed setserial and ran auto-remov...

Re: [Solved] GUFW and security on home LAN

@sammiev Thank you for persisting because I do want that extra level of protection. I tried command line ufw again following your suggestion, one rule for each of the 4 samba ports shown in the simple gufw rules: sudo ufw allow from [my subnet]/24 to any port 445. Each of those rules then showed in ...

Re: GUFW and security on home LAN

@sammiev- yes, and that is why I can't figure out why that won't work when it seems so plain and simple.
@catweazel- thanks yet again for simple advice, no worries it seems.

Re: Mint 18.3 Sylvia xfce and a PCI Conexant HCF modem- can do?

Thank you- I'll mark it closed for now and update if I solve it for others. I was able to obtain the Dell hsf.deb files today which I have read might work. Like you say, even though I am stubborn about letting a computer win, USB modems are a dime a dozen these days so at some point... I'd just real...

Hello again, Using Simple Rules for GUFW on my Sylvia xfce based server works fine for everything. BUT, it says from "anywhere".
