Cannot mount/view Android phone in 20.1

After upgrading from Linux Mint 20 to 20.1 (Cinnamon) I cannot mount my phone, or maybe I can mount it but can't look at it. Phone is Google Pixel 3 running Android 11. Steps to reproduce: - Connect phone to computer via USB C cable - In USB Preferences on phone, select File transfer / Android Auto ...

Re: LM-20 boot issues: Initramfs unpacking failure & ACPI BIOS Error

That can be fixed but shouldn't be ignored. https://linuxmint.com/rel_ulyana_cinnamon.php Read the section titled Solving freezes during the boot sequence , but where it says to use nomodeset , you need to use pci=noaer . You can ignore the references to nVidia cards for now. I'm getting similar er...

One thing you can try is turn Power Management off, #2.1 here: https://easylinuxtipsproject.blogspot.com/p/internet.html#ID2.1 I did this yesterday and haven't had problems since.

Re: Wireless fail with 19.3

Possibly a USB problem? I'm now seeing some other problems with USB devices: a drive that's gone offline a couple times, a webcam that needed unplugging and replugging.

Re: Wireless fail with 19.3 and 19.2

After about six weeks of nearly trouble free wifi using Linux Mint 19.2, suddenly I'm getting frequent failures again. I think I'm seeing (I haven't yet verified this very carefully but I think I've seen it multiple times) these symptoms: If on a fresh restart I go into terminal and ping somewhere, ...

Wireless fail with 19.3 [solved]

I upgraded to Linux Mint 19.3 when it left beta in December, and for almost a month I suffered from Wi-Fi outages. I am using a Panda Wireless PAU09 N600 adapter which had given me good service for about a year; suddenly it was almost impossible to get through a single day without Wi-Fi grinding to ...

Re: Panda adapter stopped working

I'm surprised something so simple as restarting network-manager worked, because I'd already rebooted; should not network-manager get restarted on a reboot? Anyway, seems to be working. Thanks.

Re: Panda adapter stopped working

Per viewtopic.php?f=53&t=309199 I checked SecureBoot and it is disabled.

Per viewtopic.php?f=53&t=309219 I did rfkill list and saw phy0: Wireless LAN was soft blocked. rfkill unblock wifi changed that but Wi-Fi is still unavailable.

Panda adapter stopped working [SOLVED]

I have a system whose internal wireless card was giving me problems, so I started using a Panda Wireless PAU09 N600 adapter; it's served well for months. After upgrading to Linux Mint 19.3 Cinnamon it started having trouble, losing the connection until I unplugged and replugged it. Today it's stoppe...

Re: hddtemp a password is required

The very first step there is "I tested that I could run hddtemp as root (not as a sudoer)" by running it in su. On my system there is no root password set. Is that the problem?

hddtemp a password is required

Since upgrading to Linux Mint 19.3 I have been getting this error:

12:14:07 sudo: rsholmes : a password is required ; TTY=unknown ; PWD=/home/rsholmes ; USER=root ; COMMAND=/usr/sbin/hddtemp -nq -u C /dev/sdb

Have no idea how to deal with it.

Re: Epson WF-3520 "Could not send command to scanner"

Thanks to all! After linking libsane-epkowa* into the /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/sane directory, Image Scan is now working. Simple Scan and XSane are not. Strange. But it's Image Scan I was asking about so I will mark this as solved. Edit to add: After doing this: generate '/etc/udev/rules.d/79-udev-...

Re: Epson WF-3520 "Could not send command to scanner"

I will just relate my experience with Epson all in one, though not your model number. This goes back a couple years and not sure whether still pertinent, but I found ufw was blocking scanner communications. I had to enter ufw exceptions for both in and out. sudo ufw allow to <ip address> and, sudo ...

Re: Epson WF-3520 "Could not send command to scanner"

Yes, I've been using this WF-3520 for ages on this network, the network connection is fine. I printed the check network connection page earlier to get the IP address for epkowa.conf, and I confirmed the IP address (from the Mint machine) using ping. And the printer function works from Mint, just not...

Re: Epson WF-3520 "Could not send command to scanner"

With the unit powered on, does scanimage -L identify your WF-3520 correctly? Does Simple Scan work ? No, and no. $ scanimage -L No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different, check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the sane-find-scanner tool (if appr...

Re: Unicode entry and Compose key do not work

Frankly this is not a large enough concern for me to want to reinstall and reconfigure the OS. I was hoping someone could point out a settings change I'd overlooked or some other such fix.
