Re: Safely Remove USB Drive does not display message

I think you're missing the point that if you pull the USB cable when you see the icon vanish or hear the beep, all you really get is corrupted data.

wine applications unusable with multiple monitors - mouse issues

I have a number of irreplaceable Windows apps that need to work on my Linux laptop, which has two external monitors. They can only be run on the leftmost monitor and only if that monitor is positioned in the Display app at the upper left. If they are run anywhere else, the mouse is detected in a wil...

Re: Safely Remove USB Drive does not display message

In my experience, sync returns before the external USB drives have finished writing. This is just broken. Unmount/Eject/Safely Remove - they should all act identically and they should all ensure the data is 100% written and safe before giving any indication of completion, regardless. Users shouldn't...

Re: Safely Remove USB Drive does not display message

So, I'll just say it - this is a bad design. When I right click on a device and select Safely Remove Device, three things happen: Short delay and the icons for the device vanish from the desktop. Then, a short delay and the wewooweet USB disconnect sound-effect happens. Then, a (good) few more secon...

Re: Linux 19.1 - Screen Blinks...

Recently installed Mint 19.1 on a laptop. I7 processors, Intel HD Graphics 530 graphics. No nvidia here. Flickering and rectangular blackouts are nearly nonstop on the second monitor. The irony is, I'd finally told all my friends that Linux was finally ready for prime time and they could all dump Wi...
