Re: Mendeley

libpng12-0 seems to be available for Xenial and not for Bionic on which Mint 19 is based. Will it work on Mint 19? Afraid I cannot tell:

Re: Grub Menu in Mint19/Windows10 Dual Boot

Edit /etc/default/grub as root: xed admin:///etc/default/grub and change the value of the GRUB_TIMEOUT. Save the file and then run a sudo update-grub afterwards. Reboot and see if it will have resolved the issue.

Re: bit of computer surgery, now grsync not working....

.grsync properties: Owner: Folder access: create and delete files Group: [me on this computer] Folder access: none File access: --- Folder access: None File access: --- This is exactly what I've got as well. So it seems to be in order. Check the permissions for grsync.ini inside the folder as well.

Re: bit of computer surgery, now grsync not working....

Just a hunch:
Check the ownership/permissions of .grsync in your user directory.

You could also check if everything in your user directory is owned by your user:

Code: Select all

find $HOME ! -user $USER -type f
If there is any output, you could fix it with:

Code: Select all

sudo chown -R $USER:$USER /home/$USER
