Re: Best backup utility for Mint 19.2?

Everyone seems to have their way of doing backups, I had used Timeshift until recently, when I had a crash and had to reinstall Mint 19.3 MATE. I usually keep all data on an external drive so lost nothing, but Timeshift did not work for me, and I will admit I probably did not use it in its rightful ...

Re: File Managers with Admin Rights

Nemo in the right click menu has the option to open a file as root. Is that what you mean?

Hi,
Driver manager reports no drivers in use, so your post about them included makes sense, thanks!

Re: AMD GPU driver problem with kernel 5.3

I use Radeon R9 270, and I get random freezes that even the ALT & F2 reset won't work. I am using the latest 5xx kernel also. I had no issue with other kernels. I think Radeon must be supported in the kernel, but which one works best?

I am using the card with HDMI and I am getting a video feed from it, so there must be driver support in the kernel?

Re: Virtual Box 6.1 and Flash Drives

Yes I was having trouble with the VM itself, the first time was for the extensions pack, then I had the wrong pack for the version I was using, so I reverted to 6.0, got the extension pack right, and followed up with your direction.

Oh! A little light reading :)

pbear, you said that you configure USB manually, and each device (USB) has to have all this USB information?

Re: Virtual Box 6.1 and Flash Drives

Hi pbear and RIH, following your instructions I found the extension pack and installed it. It gave me the USB 2.0 and 3.0. When I plug in a USB Mint still picks it up rather than Win 10, I formatted the USB in NTFS thinking that Win 10 would not see ext4 format, to no avail. It won't see my printer ...
