Re: Kernel 5.4.0-66 - monitor doesn't wake from sleep

I gave the amdgpu.dc=0 a try and it has fixed my problems. Next question is, when this issue is fixed in the kernel should I take this line out of grub?

Kernel 5.4.0-66 - monitor doesn't wake from sleep

Recently I updated Linux Mint 20.1 Cinnamon to the 5.4.0-66 kernel through update manager. Shortly after I noticed my monitor would no longer wake up after the system had gone to sleep for some time. It seems that the monitor has to be asleep for a while, I can't be sure how long, but this doesn't h...

Re: Having trouble remembering my bath.

does the above mean that I am missing something No, it just means that 'snapd' on its own is ambiguous, AFAIK. I'm not sure why it's not working though, because here with Ubuntu 18.04's repositories, I'm able to install the 'snapd' package, which I assume to be a meta-package which brings in a bunc...

Re: How do I create a script with a command to run everytime I boot the system?

Perhaps you could just add the command to Mints "Startup Applications". I'm not exactly sure how this method would handle elevated privileges though.

Re: Terminal problem

Did you change the hostname recently? The /etc/hosts file should also have your hostname listed, does it?
There should be a line

typing python3 runs the python interpreter. You can just type python code and it will run in the terminal. If you want to execute a python file just type python3 path/to/file.py You may want to find an IDE that you like to make coding easier. I use Geany myself for Python and C++, it's very simple. ...

Do you have Timeshift backups? I'd try rolling back to an earlier backup.

Or try resetting the user password. Does your password work in a terminal? You can try a quick

Since OnlyOffice is a flatpack it's containerized. Meaning it may not be able to reach the same fonts that LibreOffice can because they're installed outside of its container. And no, that is not the correct way. For such a simple task you should not have to go into /var with root privileges, that's ...

How are the files added to the menu?

Are they part of the "favourites" section that go vertically down the left hand side or part of the regular menu list?

Re: How to make snapping up maximize window?

Go to System Settings --> Window Tiling. There's an option to "Maximize, instead of tile when dragging to the top edge." I think this is what you are looking for.

EDIT: Assuming you are using Cinnamon.
