Re: Support for new Realtek RT8822be wifi/BT module.

Did you copy the downloaded file to: /lib/firmware/rtlwifi/ ?
Copy: sudo cp ~/Downloads/rtl8822befw.bin /lib/firmware/rtlwifi/ (Step 6).
Then build (Step 5).
Maybe that will help.

Open VLC.
Go to Tools/Preferences, at the bottom-left of window, under "Show Settings" select "All", in left window, select "Video".
In right-side window, uncheck "Drop late frames" & "Skip frames".
Save.
Close VLC.
Restart VLC.
Test video.

Re: Weak wireless signal, tp-link usb network adapter

If that is the Realtek RTL8192EU chipset, this may work (Good luck). You may need to install some packages (linux-headers-generic build-essential dkms): sudo apt-get install git linux-headers-generic build-essential dkms 1. Download the .zip folder from https://github.com/Mange/rtl8192eu-linux-drive...

I also have a Toshiba Satellite C55T-C5300 and the wifi is only 30% and Google/Netflix stutters often. I attached a TP-Link TL-W722N v1.1 USB wifi adapter with 100% signal and same thing.

Re: Has the disk gone bad?

Back to your question, I would try the HDD in several different HDD USB enclosures on several different PCs. If no go, I have opened a HDD, removed the disks and installed them in a good identical HDD and copied the data to a different HDD or PC (the environment must be dust & lint-free and enclosed...

Re: Has the disk gone bad?

If that HDD is a Seagate HDD, it could be bad. I installed a new BarraCude Pro 1TB 7200rpm 128MB-Cache HDD in one of my 6 laptops 2 months ago, only used it 10-20 hours, and now the HDD is dead. Even with a 5 year warranty, they will ship me a reman/rehab unit. I made the mistake of buying another S...

Re: Converting VHS to digital

Back in the day, I used to convert many VHS movies to DVD digital movies. But, you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear! The VHS quality is what you get when converting, the quality does not get any better, even though the media is converted to digital. So, I gave all my VHS movies away and tr...

Maybe the downloaded file is corrupt. Try opening it on a Windoze machine. Try rebooting.

Re: HP 4650 will not print - Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon

Personally, I would check the printer's menu/network settings to see if the printer is communicating with your router/modem at the correct IP Address.

Re: 64 bit install alongside win7 to diff HDD, and no grub?

When installing LM on a PC with Windows 7/8/10 (dual-boot), sometimes this step is missed, and the result is a PC that boots to Windows and no boot menu appears. Dual-boot installation info: After making the partitions ahead of time, double-click the "Install" icon on the desktop to start the instal...
