Re: Do I really need to encrypt home if I have full disk encryption?

Hi Pierre, Thanks a lot for the reply. if full-disk LUKS encryption is also enabled, & on the same drive,, then you should Not need to also encrypt the /home partition, as well. That's precisely my case, `home` is on the same 1TB SSD drive that's is also fully-LUKS-encrypted. In that case, how do I ...

Do I really need to encrypt home if I have full disk encryption?

Hi everyone, I'm currently a happy user of Mint 18.3 that I installed with full disk encryption (LUKS) and also `home` folder encryption (which also includes the swap partition if I understood it right). I'm also not worried about losing the files if I can't login for some reason, because I have a d...

Bluetooth suddenly broken (Dell XPS 15 9550)

Hi everyone, I run Mint 18.3 on a Dell XPS 15 9550 (specs follow) and I've so far and used to use its bluetooth capabilities somewhat successfully, I say somewhat because I did have some small issues: I have a Sony wireless headphone (that I use all the time when I'm working), and it used to work fi...

Re: Firefox Quantum rendering extremely choppy and slow

Sorry for the delay, I've been travelling in the last two weeks. Something not right, that's for sure, was nvidia selected in nvidia-settings or was this after you selected intel and rebooted? I never selected Intel. As far as I'm concerned, Nvidia is activated. I just checked nvidia-settings now, a...

Re: Firefox Quantum rendering extremely choppy and slow

I guess if you are utilizing the nvidia card it should be using power, what does nvidia-smi -q -d POWER show, specifically the 'Power Draw'. I just ran the command and my Duration is 11.80 seconds, is your still some ridiculous number? Wow, I just ran it and it shows `N/A` instead! What the... ====...

Re: Firefox Quantum rendering extremely choppy and slow

that you do have two graphics cards. Have you tried switching between Nvidia and Intel gpu using Prime select? How do I go about making sure which one is being used / force-select one of them? By looking at my systems settings, it seems the Intel card is being used: https://clb.sh/a89c1f; but if I ...

Firefox Quantum rendering extremely choppy and slow

Hi there! First of all, let me say I'm very impressed with Mint 18.3. I've been using it for over a month on my `Dell XPS 9550` and overall it works well. I did have some issues which I *guess* are related to the Nvidia proprietary drivers. First, I noticed that the overall graphics performance was ...
