Do not insta...

Re: Kernel upgrade & Cinnamon

Hi, I just installed the latest Nvidia drivers that came today on the PPA ( 396.45 ) and then re-installed kernel 4.15.0-29.31 and again Cinnamon started into fallback mode upon restart. Latest drivers are working great with 4.13.0-45, no problem whatsoever. So, is there something that I am missing ...

I didn't try with Nouv...

Re: [SOLVED] 5.1 surround thru SPDIF ( Optical )

Hi, Please, next time you paste terminal output, make use of BBCode Tags for a better readability. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BBCode if you need some pointers. Did you solve your problem ? If not, your pacmd info should show, at the end, for index 1 : index: 1 name: <alsa_card.pci-0000_00_1b.0> d...

[SOLVED] 5.1 surround thru SPDIF ( Optical )

Hi everyone, I try to use my onboard soundcard optical output on my old but still good 5.1 digital receiver compatible with DTS and DD signals. I'm on Mint 18.3 Cinnamon 64-bit and my sound chip is an ALC-887 VD. On Pulseaudio, my only choice for Digital Output is Digital stereo(IEC958) which works ...

Re: Slow reads speeds with Samba shares

Ok, I will try that but, as I wrote in my first post, I've got the same issue with my laptop running LxLe ( Ubuntu 16.04.2 ) so you may be right about the networking problem. I will try another router and see if the problem comes from DD-wrt. By the way, I've tried to download some files with SCP fr...

Re: Slow reads speeds with Samba shares

Hi, Thanks for your answer. I tried to add the line to my smb.conf client side first and then server side ( don't know if it's useful but I'm desperate) and in both case it didn't do a thing. In fact, I can still access my shared directories with Mint file explorer or Firefox and transfers from my s...

Hi, I'm facing a problem with the reading speeds of samba shares on my Debian Server, whenever I try to copy a file using Mint file explorer on my main computer or on my laptop using LxLE file explorer my download speeds are near 600 ~ 700 kbit/s which is slower than my internet bandwith. The same e...
