Never. 5.1 is end of life. ;)

The next HWE-edge kernel this fall will be 5.2 or 5.3.
ahaha, ok, good to know, thanks!

New 5.1 Kernel

hi everyone,

I was wondering when the new 5.1 kernel is planned for linux mint.

As I have a RME UCX soundcard, I am eager to test how the new kernel is improving the usage of this soundcard:

Re: Korean language in browser does not work

thanks for your answer!

I tried out to stop Ibus and restart it: then it works in the browser too!

So it seems like Ibus is starting probably too early or something like that?

"Open with" does not differenciate between different text file formats

To simplify the explanation of the issue, let's say I have two text files: 1. foo.txt 2. foo.m3u The first is a simple text file, the second is a text file containing information of a playlist (that I usually play with VLC). When i associate the file foo.txt to b...

Re: Pulseaudio in Mint 19

SOLVED

the settings have to be uncommented!
default-sample-format = s32le
default-sample-rate = 48000
alternate-sample-rate = 48000

not
; default-sample-format = s32le
; default-sample-rate = 48000
; alternate-sample-rate = 48000

Pulseaudio in Mint 19

hi all,

I would like to set my pulseaudio at a sample rate of 48000.
I tried to do so, editing the file /etc/pulse/daemon.conf , this used to work on Mint 18.3, but it does not seem to work on Mint 19.
Where should I change this setting?

thanks

Re: Login window in 18.3

what i mean is not the login screen, but the login window where you set the properties of the login.
Based on the new features of 18.3, a new login screen has been rewritten:
