Re: Folding@home-Team Linux Mint-76140

HI Keith, i tried it with a freshly updated pc. Nothing works. I did just the same as before, but this time the fahcontrol-script doesnt work. :( Sorry mate, but I think we just have to wait.... :( Meanwhile, we have to edit etc/Fahclient/config.xml by hand. This works, i did it on the new pc... :mr...

Re: Folding@home-Team Linux Mint-76140

In an earlier post you said that you did not do a new install of Cinnamon but made some changes to your existing program. Could that have any bearing on why your Cinnamon works and my Mate 20 does not?. Hi Keith, I dont think so, because i deleted all old packages with apt autoremove and apt autocl...

Re: Folding@home-Team Linux Mint-76140

Hi Keith, the only help I can offer is to mail you all that I have installed as it is installed to the Mint folders. I need some time for this, but you will get an email in about one hour. if you dont have a config.xml file in etc/fahclient, use one from your backups or your 18.3 system. first, inst...

Re: Folding@home-Team Linux Mint-76140

Hi Keith, im really puzzled now. I examined the script (didnt even now thats a simple script) - theres no hint to change user, team or anything else... There seems to be something very borked. Save and later restore your etc/Fahclient/config.xml file - there your user data and your team data are sto...

At the moment, mintinstall does not work.
