Re: Incremental backup apps?

Have a look at rsnapshot, it does exactly what you need, incremental backups. https://linuxconfig.org/guide-to-rsnaps ... s-on-linux

Re: How do i set a keyboard combo to write a special character?

The easiest way would be to add a Spanish keyboard layout. You can toogle layouts by using Alt+Shift for example. You could also modify the mapping of the German keyboard located in /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/de. Have a look at https://rlog.rgtti.com/2014/05/01/how-to-modify-a-keyboard-layout-in-lin...

Re: LM on New Intel NUC

I have a NUC i5 since several months and it rocks with Linux Mint. I updated to 19.3/kernel 5 yesterday. I enjoy very much this small footprint but powerful computer.

Re: Watch tv

I use Kaffeine without any issues. I access channels Over The Air with an USB Hauppauge TV tuner and I can record programs ahead of time. Make sure you have few OTA channels in your area. I also tried MeTV but I prefer Kaffeine.

[SOLVED]: failed to initialize the NVIDIA GPU at PCI 1:0:0

Yeah, got it! In addition to the Nvidia video card, I also have a Hauppauge TV tuner PCI card and somehow they both need more memory than the default allocated. I searched the Internet and by adding the kernel parameter vmalloc=192M fixes the problem in my case. Change GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="qu...

Re: failed to initialize the NVIDIA GPU at PCI 1:0:0

I started over from a fresh Mint 18.3 Xfce. I added the graphic-drivers PPA to the repository and Driver Manager offers 2 choices: nvidia-384.130 and 390.77. I choose nvidia-384 and installed it on the default kernel which is 4.10.0-38. Upon reboot, blank screen, Xorg.0.log reports "Failed to initia...

Re: failed to initialize the NVIDIA GPU at PCI 1:0:0

Yes I tried everything you suggested numerous times, on different Mint, kernel and driver versions after fresh installation. I currently use nouveau driver but it is frustrating to not be able to install the Nvidia drivers. If you have any other suggestions, feel free to share.

[SOLVED]: failed to initialize the NVIDIA GPU at PCI 1:0:0

I want to give a second life to my 11 years PC so I installed Mint 19 Xfce. The video card is a Nvidia Geforce 710. Whenever I try to install the property nvidia-390 driver from Driver Manager, I get a blank screen after a reboot and Xorg.0.log shows "Failed to initialize the NVIDIA GPU at PCI:1:0:0...
