Re: How to install tar.bz

This doesn't make sense. I downloaded the .tar.bz file from your link and extracted the files. Here's the listing of the files I got: ~/Downloads/Source/longomatch-LONGOMATCH_1_0_2$ ls total 216K drwxrwxr-x 29 me me 4.0K Feb 20 2015 . drwxr-xr-x 13 me me 4.0K Jan 20 11:34 .. -rw-rw-r-- 1 me me 396 F...

Re: How to install tar.bz

FYI - if you're not familiar with building packages from source, this is not a straightforward procedure, especially for this piece of software. You will most likely need to install build dependencies along the way (sorry, it needs mono , which I don't want on my system). It also claims to need mult...

Re: How to install tar.bz

Reread your OP. The first instruction is to 'cd to the source directory (same one you ran ./configure from).

Re: How to install tar.bz

You probably need to run the autogen.sh script first to create the makefile. It will also let you know if you're missing any dependencies.

Re: USB 3.0 devices mounting to USB 2.0 hub

I've had mixed results with USB3 in Linux. My front (2) ports work great, but the back (4) are hit-and-miss. For example, my USB3 WiFi adapter tests at 200+ Mbps when plugged into the front, less than 70 Mbps when in the back.

Are you sure that all of your ports are USB3 capable?

Re: USB 3.0 devices mounting to USB 2.0 hub

Do you have IOMMU enabled in the BIOS? If so, instead of iommu=soft, try iommu=pt.

WiFi Internet Vanishes

I recently switched to a USB WiFi adapter, successfully building the kernel modules. Everything worked great for the last few days, but now my internet connection simply vanishes at least a couple of times a day. The NIC is still connected, I can still see my local network devices, but the internet ...

Re: Nvidia GTX 770 Problem in Mint 19.1

If you look at my signature, you'll see that I have the 415.27 drivers installed and they work great for me. I added the PPA when the 396 drivers first came out and (so far) I've never had a problem. From what I've read on this (and other) boards, I'm one of the lucky ones. Hopefully someone with mo...

Re: Nvidia GTX 770 Problem in Mint 19.1

Guess it wouldn't hurt to try the latest-and-greatest (415.27). Add Ubuntu's graphic drivers PPA:

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa
sudo apt-get update

Re: Dual boot - Sync *data* between environments?

I would recommend using unison to sync your Windows/Mint data. Here's a copy of the script I use to sync the folders I want: #!/bin/bash # This script syncs data between my Linux & Windows installations WIN_ROOT="/media/Windows-C/Users/me" sudo mount /dev/sda4 /media/Windows-C # Windows 10 C drive u...

Re: Trouble fully uninstalling PyCharm

Yes. I had originally installed the Snap version, but I didn't like using a 3rd packaging system. Plus, with Flatpak I'm able to install packages per user, meaning that they are installed under /home instead of /. Definitely helps with the Timeshift snapshots.

Re: Disk Usage Analyzer

It's possible that some folders have the wrong permissions; .dbus, .cache/doc, and .gvfs have done been an on-going problem for me.
If this tool doesn't work for you, try installing ncdu.
