how to properly size diaplay connecting to larger screen

HI there! Running Mint19 on laptop. When connecting to large TV screen via HDMI for a presentation - the display on laptop resizes itself to larger size, so that I can only see one corner of the desktop. The display on TV screen is OK. What is the proper way to ensure both laptop and TV screen look ...

In PulseAudio Volume Control, you need to change the Profile on the Configuration tab to something that includes HDMI, before you'll see HDMI options on the Output Devices tab. That should solve your issue.
Thanks, I am on the road now but will try later

no sound - HDMI connection to TV with Mint 19

Hi there wonderful Linux Mint world! It has been a while since my last post - simply because I have had no problems using wonderful Linux desktops. But yesterday, for the first time, I had to blush on behalf of the penguin. Staying in a hotel in Taiwan, wanted to watch YouTube on the TV screen inste...

Re: Flash Drive asking wrong user for password

Thank you! Point taken about the blog; however, I did not tell you the whole story. There are a few tech-minded people amongst the users, so I was creating it for them, not for all the "artists". For the artists, as you suggested, I will create a visual wall poster with flowcharts etc (actual paper ...

Re: Flash Drive asking wrong user for password

[ 2. In my opinion, your webpage has too much information (for them, not for me). They don't want to know the reasons behind why they're doing any steps. They just want to know how to do the steps. You have to make it into a list of steps to perform---that's it. I know this will sound silly, but yo...

Re: Flash Drive asking wrong user for password

Thank you! Yes, disks utility is what I used. Two questions: 1. My problem is - what if the first user does not unmount/eject? Is there a remedy? (these users were used to Windows, where it was not an issue) You see, the users I am dealing with are mostly artistic-type people, if you know what I mea...

Re: Flash Drive asking wrong user for password

Yes, that's been the problem. Even though it's removed, it wasn't unmounted. You shouldn't "just remove the media". Always unmount it first, then remove it. ... Is that a flash drive too or something else? Thanks a lot! Yes, the other entry is another flash drive from another user again; and I have...

Re: Flash Drive asking wrong user for password

Yes. Any flash drive that's inserted that has regular files on it shouldn't be asking for a password. Hi there again Jerry! I 've been kind of busy and I forgot where we were up to with that issue. But anyway, I still wanted to get a clearer understanding on multi-user scenario when mounting media....

Re: Flash Drive asking wrong user for password

...needed to do some research and testing. Your flash drive is mounting as /mnt/... Flash drives should be mount as /media/... Can you post the result of the following command: cat /etc/fstab Yes, I see... I actually made it mount in /mnt (and I changed permissions for /mnt for all users to access)...

- Check settings for "removable media". It may be that the automatic execution of a program may be enabled. If so, disable.
Thanks! Here are the settings for removable media. All other tabs have nothing checked.
Are these settings ok

Thanks, I'll try that. But, while on the subject - here is a screenshot form admin user's session. He gets these messages quite often and just ignores them. but it looks like another user tried to mount an external media, maybe? But other users never complain about not being able to mount...

Re: Flash Drive asking wrong user for password

I don't think that's odd for a USB drive that's being mounted as vfat, but I'm not sure. Is one user trying to eject the disk while the other person is still logged in (switch user)?
