Re: (Solved ) timeshift vs Clonezilla

I’m interested in using timeshift, but if the system becomes unbootable, how do you recover?

Re: LMDE 3 refuse to install in bios mode

I have an Asus-X550LD with Windows 7 installed, and for the past few hours I have been unsuccessfully trying to install Linux Mint on my machine in order to create a dual boot system. I wrote the Mint image file into a USB using Rufus with the option "MBR partition scheme for BIOS or UEFI". But when...

Re: Problem loading UEFI:db

got a new DELL XPS 8500 with Windows 8. I understand that it has UEFI (as opposed to traditional boot-loading BIOS system). I installed Ubuntu 12.04 (not realizing that it doesn't work as well with the secure-load/uefi system). I partitioned my solid state drive so Windows was on one partition, and ...

Re: GRUB installation failed

Are you using Secure Boot? Older versions of Ubuntu have issues dealing with that. It's worth disabling it if possible. One way to tell if it's enabled is to open a powershell session as an Administrator and type "Confirm-SecureBootUEFI". If it returns "true", secure boot is enabled, if it's "false"...

What size /root swap and /home partitions?

Hello, I have a laptop with win7 installed. I have now made a 60gb partition which I want to install ubuntu into. The question I have before I do that is how large each of the root, swap, and home partition should be? I have read some place that root could be as small as 8GB, but isn't that too smal...

Re: Solve boot problems with AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards

It is unlikely but I did find a similar issue that had been discussed elsewhere; considering you already had windows installed it could be that it wants to use some default screen resolution or other screen settings from your previous configuration prior to the time that the OS is loaded and and wit...

Re: How to check 10 bit monitor?

Looping and encoding this png file with ffmpeg, x265, and x264 in yuv420p10le color space resulted raw h265 and h264 files, which were put into mp4 container by GPAC. If you want to recreate or modify these files, make sure, that you build x265 with HIGH_BIT_DEPTH enabled in cmake to support 10-bit...

Re: How to use the hardware database

Thank you! I've gotten a number of submissions from people - I'm going through them right now, so keep them coming. I'd like to make the product addition process smoother in the future and remove the manual steps, but one step at a time :).

Re: Bluetooth and audio problems in 19 Cinnamon

I was just about to open a ticket for this. Indeed, when you switch the audio input in the cinnamon applet, it does nothing, volume values and actual pulseaudio input remain unchanged. Using the pulseaudio applet (pasystray) to change the audio source works however, so this is a problem with the ci...

Re: Firefox extensions borked and recovered

I made multiple attempts to contact the original developer, but never heard back. Once this version is polished up a bit I might look into what it would take to migrate it to the new format...but at first glance it looks like there is no local storage allowed in the new add on design, which lazarus...

Re: Setting Permissions using Terminal

An alternative available to administrators is to leverage octal notation. Running the chmod command with octal values (such as by typing chmod 775 Desktop/Folder) enables quickly setting specific permission values for all three groups (user, group and everyone) in one fell swoop. In the example of ...

Re: Linux Mint 19 cinnamon permanent nameserver problem

The logical way would be to put your entries in /etc/resolv.conf/base but for some reason it doesn't work. It seems that this file is ignored during the generation of the resolv.conf fileWhat I ended up doing to fix a similar problem, is to put all of what I want in my resolv.conf in /etc/resolvconf...
