Re: mouse cannot move between monitors

<PROBLEM SOLVED> Very strange, but the problem fixed itself. I re-booted over and over again, switching the default monitor back-and-forth between the two. The problem eventually sorted itself out! Now my mouse can move between both monitors. At this point I'm only updating in case this post can hel...

mouse cannot move between monitors <solved>

(edited to reflect new information) Hi. I need help with my dual monitor setup. I'm running 64 bit Mint 19.2 with Cinnamon Desktop. I have two monitors which are EXACTLY the same (purchased at the same time). The monitors are connected to the same on-board graphics (one through HDMI, the other throu...

Re: Can't get past login screen

Thanks but this does not work. No matter how may files I delete, the drive registers "Free space: 0 bytes." I'm deleting these files permanently--not "trashing" them. No change in free space. No evidence that the files are being retained in any "trash" folder that I can find. It appears something is...

Can't get past login screen

Hi. I'm desperate. I've tried everything for several days. For some reason my Mint 19:2 installation wont "finish" booting. The PC boots up Mint just fine but I can't get past the login window to sign into my account. It accepts my password...but after a few seconds of darkness it just returns to th...

Re: locked out of drive

Deleting files did not work. Disk property still lists "zero space" available on the drive. My wild guess is, this is because I cant access the trash?

Re: locked out of drive

Thanks to both of you! Catweazel: problem is, I definitely don't want to destroy the ability to boot from this drive if it can be avoided.My goal is to make it bootable again. pbear: I followed your advice and it worked! PS - Anybody have any opinions on whether that problem (over-filling the drive ...

locked out of drive

Hi. I need to edit some files on an SSD drive that was previously the system drive for a Linux Mint (either 18 or 19, I'm not sure) computer. Problem is, permissions are locking me out. I have the drive mounted on a different PC (Linux Mint 19.2) from the one it came out of. It's mounted through a U...

Cool. Thanks for the info. I'll stay with Evolution a little longer and see if it merits continued support.

Evolution (email)

Is Evolution currently back in active development? IOW, does it have a future? I've been using Evolution as my default email client for several years (right now on Linux Mint 18 Sarah, Cinnamon, 64-bit) mainly because I've found no alternatives that are as close to what I was used to with MS Outlook...

Re: added noise when recording desktop

Thanks for the excellent information! I tried SimpleScreenRecorder and it worked PERFECT. So I abandoned all efforts to figure out what was going wrong with RecordMyDesktop. But as I find time, I'll still explore some of this other advice, just for the purpose of learning. I'm beginning courses in L...

Re: added noise when recording desktop

The app (recordmydesktop) records everything exactly how it's playing on my monitor / speakers / headphones. If I mute or reduce the volume, the audio in the recording is muted or reduced as well. Do I have something set up incorrectly?

added noise when recording desktop

OS = 64-bit Linux Mint 18 Sarah I'm using "RecordMyDesktop" to make a copy of an instructional video that's playing in a browser window (because I have no method of directly downloading the video). The recording quality is not too bad--except for an added "high-pitched squeel" that's present in the ...
