Re: LM 19.3 Loses Ability to Detect Removable Media

Of interest here is that I cannot run gparted while the problem persists.

As with removable media problems, the gparted problem goes away upon reboot.

Re: LM 19.03 Loses Ability to Detect Removable Media

OK so lied or was misinformed.

There is the Removable Drives icon in the system tray at this very moment. It is not always there, however, when removable media is attached.

FWIW, here's how to record the audio that you can hear:

Re: LM 19.03 Loses Ability to Detect Removable Media

Hi,

Thx for the reply.

No. There is no removable stations icon in the system tray, ever. I have never seen this.

Re: LM 19.03 Loses Ability to Detect Removable Media

Bump.

This happens with pretty much any new device or media that can be attached to the live system. The system loses it ability to detect and mount anything.

A reboot fixes the problem immediately.

Re: A Peek Question - Audio Capture?

Sadly the answer to my question is no. Peek cannot capture system audio. It was not designed to do so. :( There is a wonderful review of the app here: https://www.ghacks.net/2018/04/27/a-look-at-peek-screen-recorder-for-gnu-linux/ The extremely positive review is quite detailed in its analysis of Pe...

A Peek Question - Audio Capture?

Hi,

I am wondering if Peek can capture system audio as well as video. I am having trouble with this.

Please, please do not go off looking for an answer on my behalf. I can do this myself.

But if you do know already, a reply would be appreciated.

Thx.

Re: Webcam not recognized

Hi, I don't see a cam in the list you posted above. In a terminal run the command: lsusb And report what it lists. If it doesn't specifically list something that you recognise as a cam, report everything. Try installing guvcview. Most cams will have some level of basic functionality in this program ...

LM 19.3 Loses Ability to Detect Removable Media

One peculiarity of my 19.3 installation that I have noticed is that some period of time after booting it loses it ability to detect and mount newly inserted removable media, especially USB keys. This does not happen all the time but frequently enough to be annoying. At start up everything is OK. Med...

Re: LM 19.3 Duplex not Working with Samsung ML-2955DW

Hmmm ..... Duplex works properly in LM 19.3 with a USB connection. I packed the printer over from from a remote location in my house and hooked it up with a USB cable, and it works just as it should. So the basic drivers work. No problem. There is a problem over Ethernet, however. The printer is nor...

Re: Soundblaster X-Fi SB0460 - Recommendations?

Well.... I rolled the dice and went and bought the card. It seems to function very well in LM 19.3 with no fuss, per se. And it sounds a lot better than the on board Realtek ALC 892 sound chipset. I have always had problems with the Reatek sound chipset in Linux Mint - noise when I move the mouse - ...

Soundblaster X-Fi SB0460 - Recommendations?

I am looking at an older Soundblaster X-Fi card on Craiglist, a model SB0460. Searching for information about the card and Linux, I find a lot of ancient horror stories about Creative's terrible Linux drivers, which they abandoned, and handed over to the open source community. I can't find a lot of ...

Rsync is the basis for many of the backup programmes on Linux. If you are happy with it then try Grsync.
Thanks. It has the same problem as a lot of the other GUI-interfaced solutions. I cannot find a way to select hidden folders in my profile.
