Just to keep you guys in the loop, minxi tragically died before being born (never to be forgotten :P ) but Clem added similar functionality to mintreport (yet to be released).
I shall hold a wake. That is, if I can stay awake. :D

Re: inxi suggestion

Cinnamon already has a System Info menu entry with an upload system info button. Currently (Cinnamon 4.0.9) that button uploads inxi -Fxzr output to termbin and opens the output in a browser. Huh, I didn't know that used Inxi. I've always just manually run Inxi in a terminal. Do the other DE flavor...

Re: inxi suggestion

That's fine for those times when you need a user to run Inxi with particular command-line switches so it will gather particular data that you need to help them with their particular problem (particular particular particular! :D ) but for getting just the basic information about their system when peo...

Re: better HiDPI setting location and default

+1 on this! It's very difficult to change scaling when you can't even read the menus and settings because they're so tiny. That's also very ADA-unfriendly for vision-impaired users.

inxi suggestion

MX Linux 18 comes with a shell script that runs inxi -Fxrz and copies the results to the clipboard for you, making it easier to provide system information when requesting support as people don't have to memorize the Inxi command line switches. MX has it included as a menu item. Can I suggest that Mi...

Re: How to change the display order of the file/folder properties in the list view?

It's the right mouse button's services, actions, or whatever it's called menu that I want to alter. When you right-click on a file and you can open it with the default app, open with a chosen app, delete it, copy it, cut it, send it to the trash bin, rename it, view and edit its properties, etc.

Re: How to change the display order of the file/folder properties in the list view?

In LInux Mint 19.1 Tessa, you can simply drag an drop the column in the order you want. Don't know if this is a new function, rookie here. :D Thanks, but that doesn't work for me. All of the Nemo file manager's menu items when I right-click on a file or directory are static and can't be reordered b...

Change order of Nemo's right-click menu items?

First, happy holiday season, everyone. Is there a way to change the order of the service items in Nemo's right-click menu? I must be getting old because I'm starting to have a harder time finding items I want such as rename and delete. They're getting lost in the clutter of all of the available item...

Re: fsck an lvm volume?

I finally got around to checking the disk as SMART reported an imminent failure recently. It fixed a few very minor problems with a few inodes being "too narrow", whatever that means, but after I ran fsck with -fcy command-line switches it detected no bad blocks. I had similar issues in the past whe...

gpg decryption question

I encrypted a text file using gpg -c filename.txt and it prompted me to enter a passphrase twice, as I expected. I then decrypted the file with gpg -d filename.txt.gpg expecting to be prompted for the passphrase but instead it just decrypted the file. This has me concerned that anyone might be able ...

Re: Window focus is utterly broken

Did you verify the ISO before burning it? I mean, no, but what are the odds that 5 different ISOs across 2 different distributions and 2 years are all corrupt? Especially when you consider that several of them are the same ISOs I used fine on old laptops/Virtual Machines. I guess it's like asking w...

Re: Window focus is utterly broken

You say you've been having this problem for almost two years and it spans different Linux distros, but have you been using the same hardware all this time? I'm thinking it may be an issue with NVidia's (proprietary) video drivers for your card, or a compatibility issue of some sort between Linux in ...

Re: Per-monitor UI scaling?

Any proper scaling in Cinnamon would be wonderful! All we get is 100% (which is too small or else we wouldn't be in the configuration looking at scaling settings, would we?) or 200% which is way too big. Double or nothing. Even Windows 7 gave us 110%, 120%, 130%, etc. so we could fine-tune the disp...

Re: fsck an lvm volume?

I installed Mint 19 Cinnamon with full disk encryption (an encrypted LVM.). You have an encrypted system so you would first need to open the LUKS container from the installation USB to expose the filesystem with sudo /sbin/cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sda5 sda5_crypt # sda5 matches the encrypted partit...

It went past the max mount count of 30 and it's now back to #6. I never saw it running fsck. I booted from the installation USB stick and tried sudo fsck -fvCy /dev/mapper/mint--vg-root but it said it couldnt find /dev/mapper/mint--vg-root. When I looked in /dev/mapper all that was there was a file ...

Re: fsck an lvm volume?

Thanks. I restarted it right after scheduling a fsck on next boot and once more after that when I shut down before I went to bed. I took your advice and scheduled the fsck after 30 boots. We'll see what happens. I don't think fsck can actually repair a bad block, can it? It just moves whatever's on ...
