Found small nice article explaining exactly how to mount luks partition on login

You can use chromium translate if you don't speak German.
Looks very simple and works so far.

Re: Linux encryption and dual booting 'alongside' windows

I have said this several times already. HDDs are dirt cheap. Install each OS on its ow HDD totally independent of each other and you will save yourself a lot of grief. That's what I do. This doesn't work for laptops. No space for second disk. And looks like full disk encryption is the only simple w...

Re: Higher cpu temp with 19.1 vs 18.3

4 virtual cores is 4 CPU cores from OS perspective. You can get up to 400% cpu usage if workload is efficiently parallelized. There is nothing funny in it. Hyper threading e.q. virtual cores can give up to 15-20% performance boost. Because you really cannot give 100% workload for all elements in the...

Re: Higher cpu temp with 19.1 vs 18.3

temperature can change because of different reasons - temperature of the outside air, dirt in the cooling system and position of the computer (laptop on a bed vs on laptop stand), it's better to compare CPU usage in an apps like system monitor. Looks at what apps actually consuming CPU.

Whether you're drawing from the battery or you are plugged into the power supply, the wattage is the same. The power supply is just recharging the battery when you're plugged in, the laptop is always running off the battery. Well, computer may use different power profiles for battery and AC use. Wi...

Re: How to measure laptop power?

When you laptop is working from battery, all the power it uses it takes from the battery. So it is the same number.
As far as I know, usually laptops doesn't have any hardware to measure current they are using from AC.

Re: How to measure laptop power?

19.1 it does, in battery section. Laptop should work from battery of cause.
But looks like it has some approximation, it it not updated very fast.

Hi Stealps. Install and run PulseAudio Volume Control. When the conference ends you should be able to switch back to the A2DP on the Output Devices tab (or maybe it's on the Configuration tab, I'm not certain.) Thank you. This app allows me to change profiles, but I doesn't reselect the same output...
