Re: [Solved]Relocating Chrome Cache to Flash Drive

One puzzle though, is if I forget the plug the flash drive in and click on Chrome, it still works, but the /home.cache/google-chrome file as in the 3rd pic is unchanged and no new folder with that name is created. So where on earth is the chrome cache being put then? Not X because it's not attached.

Re: [Solved]Relocating Chrome Cache to Flash Drive

I attached a before moving and after pic. You can see the folder with the shortcut arrow. I see what you mean about it being in X. I can create a folder in /home/.cache/google-chrome and it immediately shows up in /mnt/X/google-chrome. So it is working. I'll reevaluate the writes more carefully over...

Re: [Solved]Relocating Chrome Cache to Flash Drive

and either simply link it back: I've discovered that even though the /.cache/google-chrome has a shortcut arrow on it and is writing the cache do flash drive X, it is also still duplicating everything to the /.cache/google-chrome folder. Being as this is happening the writes to the SSD remain the s...

Re: How can I fix a slow clock?

If the clock constantly loses time, then it is likely to be the CMOS battery. If its just 5 minutes slow, then correct the time. If the former: Unfortunately, not all CMOS batteries are easily accessible in laptops. You'll have to have a look in the manual and see if it included in the maintenance ...

Re: Evaporating dialogue box?

See what this command does: sudo apt-get purge --auto-remove zoom If it shows that it can be uninstalled then answer Y for yes and hit enter. Assuming that goes well, then run this command to remove dependencies: sudo apt-get autoremove If the first command shows it's not on the system, then report ...

Where did you get the package? From the Software Manager, or did you download the .deb?

Re: System on an hard disk and data on another

Yes the other is needlessly complicated. Menu>Accessories>Disks. On the left, highlight the non SSD drive (hereafter referred to as HDD). Click the 3 horizontal lines in upper right (hamburger menu is correct term). Choose Format disk. Accept the defaults and choose Format. It will prompt for passwo...

Re: System on an hard disk and data on another

Where is you data now? How much data in GB? Normally, you would format the other drive with Disks to Ext4, and transfer your data there.

Something else I thought of to do. Start nemo file manager and click file system. Navigate to var and highlight it, right click and open as root. Now open the Timeshift folder. If there are multitudes of files in there, close it. Now start Timeshift and delete any snapshots. Now go back to var/log/T...

Re: Full Disk Warning

When I purchased my first ssd a few years ago, I learned that it was necessary to run something called "Trim". Can you tell me if Mint runs this by default or do I need to create a cron job? Trim schedule on Mint 19.x can be checked in terminal: systemctl status fstrim.timer See when last done: jou...

Re: Full Disk Warning

Ask the man that knows about that - smurmophs. He knows more about Mint than any five of me. To do that go to that post on page 2 and click the " quote marks. This will send him a notification that his comment was quoted and also opens a reply page. You can get his opinion when he answers.

Re: Full Disk Warning

And and any low disk space warnings? Probably not. So see how it goes. When Mint 20 arrives in June or so, maybe you'll want to do a fresh install then. You can keep an eye on /var/log by running Disk Usage Analyzer and see if it gets out of hand in size. It shouldn't. Mine is attached. Var.jpg Bear...

Re: Full Disk Warning

If you can get text as it should be, don't forget to run

Code: Select all

sudo systemctl restart systemd-journald.service
Reboot the PC and then try

Code: Select all

xed admin:///etc/systemd/journald.conf
to see if it will open the file.

Re: Full Disk Warning

Sorry typo. Correct is

xed admin:///etc/systemd/journald.conf
Section 10. has more than two commands. There are all the optional ones as well. We are power washing your system so I think you should do them too.
