Re: Very slow file copying

^The file copy of large files to a USB stick doesn't stall, it is reported incorrectly since the progress dialog doesn't report actual syncing speed to a flash stick. So you have to be patient or, I have found a partial solution that consists in adding script that can be executed through CommandRunn...

Re: Firewall per-interface settings

^ Yes, but you have to check if the network has changed all the same. You could output the, previously mentiond, nmcli -t -f name con status, to a file and then compare it with the current hot-spot name when the machine comes out of suspend at a different location.

HTH :D

Re: Firewall per-interface settings

Certainly an easy way to handle it would be to set the script as a startup command with a delay of 10+ seconds so that it would run after Mint had already connected to a network, but how would you address a situation of putting the laptop to sleep, taking it to a different area, and then waking it ...

[SOLVED] Is it necessary to enable USB 3.0 in LM 18.x?

Hi,

I have 2 USB 3.0 ports at the back of the mobo. The reason for posting this question is, when I insert a flash stick there lsusb -t reports it's attached to 480(USB 2.0) port. How's that possible? Do I need to add iommu=soft parameter to GRUB or is this an altogether different problem?

I've never had the speed slow down in the middle of copying/moving to or from a USB drive. Using which DE? I had it in Xfce 4.12 and I still have it in Cinnamon 3.2.7(possibly in KDE4.x and LXDE also, if I remember correclty) to the extent that forced me to create a script to redress this issue. ht...

Re: A way to display file copy progress when copying to a USB stick

However, if it happens to be writing to a NTFS, it closes much too soon and I can only probe, now and then, if transfers are over by attempting to safely remove it. Haven't had the time to see if the script will fare any better. As an illustration of the above, quoted from my previous post in this ...

If you wish to reduce the possibility of breaking something, you should allow only level 3 updates. I've been using it for the past 8 months and nothing bad happened.

GUI way: run Synaptic, find incriminating packages one by one, select, go to Package menu, select Force version, in the drop-down select older version... Repeat for both packages.

Re: 60 FPS cpu Maxed out?

@OP

What you haven't said is, which browser is maxing the CPU? In case it's Chromium/Chrome, go to chrome://flags and enable "Override software rendering list" which might bring it down a bit. Chromium is currently more CPU efficient at video playback than FF and its derivatives.

Re: Slow to show DE: which log to check

I had a similar issue, even worse actually, and newer kernel resolved it. Install kernel 4.10 or 4.11 from update manager, maybe it'll fix it for you too.

Re: A way to display file copy progress when copying to a USB stick

To tell you the truth, I have no idea why would you monitor when something is copied to usb when there is a progress bar in most file managers. Perhaps it can be used for conky or semething else. Anyway, I decided to give it a try with Xfce's "Generic monitor" plugin and upgraded your script to wat...

I don't know whether Scripts&Bash or Tutorial section is more appropriate for this post.

Thanks. I didn't know it's safe to do that.
