Re: Social Media is Draining You

I was chatting with a friend over dinner at a restaurant and, as I am talking, he starts typing into his smartphone and it irritated me and I stopped talking. When he looked up at me I asked him if he was done and he said he was just looking for info on what I was telling him. This is a huge part o...

Re: Python modules not working

I'll chalk this one up to a learning experience. I had assumed that Debian was more similar to Ubuntu that it turned out; didn't do nearly enough research on this upgrade other than to make a quick system image then go for it. In hindsight, I should have just waited for v20 to come out.

Re: Folding@home-Team Linux Mint-76140

That was exactly how I got it to work on Mint 19, but this is not working on LMDE4. I'm going to have to create a post on the FAH forum, because this error isn't showing up there either. UPDATE: ended going back to Mint 19.3 XFCE, mainly for other reasons but this was one of them. I can be patient u...

Re: Folding@home-Team Linux Mint-76140

Trying to setup FAH again on a new install of LMDE4. I've basically copied over all of the previous configs, installed OpenCL and Cuda, but I'm stuck with this message: OpenCL: Not detected: clGetPlatformIDs() returned -1001 Is there something else that needs to be done to get this client to work?

[Project Abandoned] Python modules not working

I am fairly new to Python programming, so forgive me in advance if this sounds noobish. After much deliberation, I decided to dump Mint 19.3 XFCE for LMDE4. Whenever I needed modules for my programs, I always used pip to install/update the new modules with the --user switch, specifically to try to a...

Re: How 2 install snaps universal program ?

Nothing to download, it's already there. From the terminal:

Code: Select all

apt install snapd
You can also find it in the Software Manager; search for snapd

How can it be the hardware? Windows 7 runs very quickly on the same hardware. The old Mint I had worked fine with the same hardware.
Mint 12 was released in 2011, Windows 7 in 2009...and you expect no one to question the hardware???

Re: Timeshift screwed up system: Snapshots in Timeshift are hidden now?

All of these complaints about Timeshift are easily fixable; maybe not for the noob, but even then it's not that hard: Use BTRFS for /; snapshots are almost instantaneous and take up very little space (no rsync nor external storage needed). I currently have 13 snapshots, mainly because I update my sy...

Snap package reinstall required after kernel update

Never had this happened before, whether it was a standard deb, flatpak, or snap package. Upgrading to the 5.3.0-53 version, however, forced me to reinstall scrcpy (what a great program!). Has this happened to anyone else?

Re: [Solved] Optimize SSD in Linux?

Another way (which seems to be faster) to check on fstrim is journalctl -u fstrim. This will work for any systemd unit.

Re: Re-enable Grub (EFI system)

Turns out it was a simple fix. Evidently changing the drives triggered the BIOS into switching the first boot option to Windows instead of Ubuntu.

My system has (2) SSDs, one for Windows (/dev/sda) and one for Mint (/dev/sdb). The EFI partition and Grub are located on the Windows disk. Tonight I needed to remove both disks so that I could do some maintenance on an SATA drive that was giving me problems on an older system. After putting the (2)...

Re: Folding@home-Team Linux Mint-76140

You should not have had to install crontab separately. If running "crontab" in the terminal returns nothing, then I don't know what to tell you. What about testing the FAH commands I gave you? Does /usr/bin/FAHClient --send-pause actually pause the client?

Re: Folding@home-Team Linux Mint-76140

Sorry, didn't realize you hadn't used the crontab command before. Run crontab without anything else, then add the entries you want as required. At the top of the screen, you'll see some documentation on what each entry means (for more info, run man 5 crontab).
