Re: [Solved] Cannot access smbclient shares after upgrading to mint 20 mate

So, interestingly, I am NOT on 20. I'm running 19.2 and my smb connections, to my NAS, just quit overnight. They worked yesterday, then no workee today... I am running kernel 5.4.0-40 right now though. The addition of client min protocol = NT1 jut made my smb connections work too. So maybe this isn'...

Re: LMDE 4

As soon as LMDE4 comes out, I'm going to migrate my laptop and desktop to it. I dual booted my desktop with LM 19.2 and D 10 and I have been spoiled up the extra update manager stuff that vanilla Debian didn't have.

Re: unable to launch "cinnamon-session-cinnamon" X session --- "cinnamon-session-cinnamon" not found; falling back to de

Many thanks for this. For whatever reason my LM19 install suddenly got this error message on login and these steps helped me fix it.

My only comment would be that I had to keep hitting the Ctl-Alt F1 step as it was never quite clear as which black/blank screen it was.

LM19 and USB BT dongle

I bought a no name BT USB dongle (stupid really, I know), that claimed support for Linux, and tried to connect it to my Sony WH-1000XM2 noise cancelling headphones from my fresh LM 19 install on my Dell Latitude E5500 laptop. They did connect and they did connect via the 2 BT program options that I ...

Re: Hello from WNY

I'm a soon to be an ex-W7 user Welcome! Where in the world is WNY? Ah, yes. We are the arse end of the rust belt in NE US. Buffalo NY, the end of NY state that has Niagara Falls (and no where near to those cesspits known as Albany and NYC) in it and a reputation - deserved most of the time - for be...

Re: Hello from WNY

Yep, that's the one. Basically, anyone that you get roped into being tech support because they just can't work it out for themselves.

Re: Hello from WNY

My FiL wouldn't have the slightest clue about opening terminal windows, editing files and digging through directories looking for log files... In his current W10 (unclean...) all he does is point, click and done. This is what I meant. The reason I joined the forums was about how to get bookmarks to ...

[Solved] LM 19 clean install, NAS drives and bookmarks

Newbie question around networking existing NAS drives, admin password and bookmarks. I dropped a new, clean, 5400rpm Segate into my old (think made for Vista) exworks Dell Latitude E5500, and carried out a clean install of LM19 (v2) on it. I then tried to find my Synolgy NAS and WD NAS. No joys. Som...

Hello from WNY

I'm a soon to be an ex-W7 user who's looking to get somewhere without so much spying and the like. I've dabbled in LM for a little while now, with LM19 being my latest foray into the world of Linux. I'm making more of a concerted effort this time because of the whole W7 EOL thing. Being bad that I a...
