Re: Laptop Backlight Does not turn back on After Sleep

Yes, extensive Details are always needed here, to get useful help. Is your ASUS the "ROG" bad boy with the nVidia GTX 10 GPU? "All" nVidia GPU devices have had proprietary Drivers for many years. The 'soft' GPU drivers in the GNU/Linux world can never get "all" functions correct. [ See Webster's def...

Re: Occasional issue with jerky, erratic touchpad movements

"install synaptics" does not help the Volunteers here, to help you. Exactly what did you change from the OEM Install? ___FYI: old laptops/notebooks often have "non-Industry-Standard" hardware (i.e. cheapest Chinese stuff they can source), and 'squirrely' poorly-coded BIOS or EFI or UEFI.

Re: USB ports not active after suspend Linux Mint 19

With all due respect ... you should STAY with the GNU/Linux distribution that worked. Mint 19 is a work-in-progress, with many many changes under-the-hood ... it is coded for "modern" PCs. Older PCs 'usually' get issue-fixes from the package maintainers, eventually ... AFTER they have resolved Issue...

Yikes... you DO realize that you are the proud Owner of an 'antique' Computer, that is KNOWN (repeat knowwwwn) to have it's CPU and GPU chips run SO hot, that the microballs of lead-free solder under them MELT and then cool down into a form yielding complete FAILURE of your entire computer! __And th...

Re: pg: keyserver receive failed: No such file or directory

Your 'clue" would be the "2007" in daniel's ppa NAME. You are trying to use a 'shortcut' tool, NOT meant for the latest GNU/Linux ANYthing! Contact the maintainer of that ppa.. IF he is even still active, and working with "Modern" HW/OSes.

__Yes, Mint 19 has known Issues... stay with 18.3 LTS for now. >>> More importantly, you need to examine your PC's internal Hard Disk S.M.A.R.T. Attributes immediately.
