Re: CD/DVD Player not found

Look in the preferences of Audacious, and change the default cd/dvd (cdda://) to /dev/sr0 as in my previous reply.

Re: CD/DVD Player not found

Another thing to check, is in the program that needs dvd/cd access. This was mentioned in the Release Notes. Check to make sure that the default optical device is set to /dev/sr0 (a number zero, not a capital O) (click to enlarge) This is the preferences of VLC on my computer. https://i.imgur.com/MD...

This terminal command will give you some good info on your disks and specifically your optical drive. You can then post the complete output back here in a reply.

Re: Update Error - mint-artwork-common

Use this terminal command to remove that corrupted file. Then when you run Mint Update again, it will re-download a fresh file.
sudo rm /var/cache/apt/archives/mint-artwork-common_1.8.9.2_all.deb

Re: Can no longer resuscitate ThinkPad by removing CMOS battery, laptop batt, AC adapter

Something wrong with the laptop's built-in keyboard?

Does it do anything when you do all your battery unplugging, etc. and then leave the keyboard unplugged to boot?

Re: How to autologin in linux mint xfce?

Do you have the program called Login Window in the Menu? That's what I used for auto-login in 17.3 Xfce.

Re: changing red circles to green

I only see red circles . . :shock: No black, or any "grid" lines that you write about . .
Have you tried the "foreground select" tool, and then replaced the foreground color?
Changed it from multi-million color to basic (or other, simpler) color(s)?

Re: my fan is always on

Sure . . I'm positive that you can disable those fans in your BIOS.
Be also sure to let the accumulated heat fry your system !
Just for the sake of the sound of your fans . . :shock:

Re: make firefox use thunar (default) instead of other (nemo) FM for Open Containing Folder.

Use the MATE edition if you like Nemo . . two File Managers never work nice together on the same operating system! :shock:

I use the tiny program called Gigolo to share files in Xfce, it works great, and is seen in Thunar.

Re: Sound isn't working anymore

Looks like your "Brave Browser" repository has given up the ghost, or has errors . . I'm guessing, that if you remove it from the Software Sources program, you will not get those errors anymore . . :shock:

Instead of posting this on the USER forums, why don't you post this at the Mint Github developer site ?
