Re: mintUpdate / Update Manager releases and github repo

So, after a little poking around, it seems that 5.5.9 was released in January 2020 (at least, that's the timestamp shown in the project's /debian/changelog file.

Is this the last version of the application that can be used with Mint 19.3?

mintUpdate / Update Manager releases and github repo

Hi, I apologize for putting multiple, orthogonal topics into one post. The first is that I'm getting a pattern in the Update Manager that I think might be related to the fact that it's not displaying available updates automatically: ... 09.26@23:58 ++ Update Manager window is open, delaying recurrin...

Re: 19.3 to 20 - complete failure, extremely angry

flameshot-2020-07-10-18-15-45.png This does happen to appear in the UI. Also, when I attempted the upgrade, I found myself with a series 5 kernel. Pjotr indicates that it's apparently possible to avoid a new kernel install by removing linux-kernel-generic . It would be nice if this were confirmed a...

Bookmark not available in Open dialog box

The Bookmarks added by the user to Nemo are missing from the standard dialog box that appears when, say, you choose to browse for and select a file to upload to a website. How can I configure either Cinnamon or Nemo such that the standard Open or Save As dialog boxes display all of what's on the lef...

Re: kernel version and updates

A colleague just answered my question in a different forum. For those wondering... Are you running Linux Mint 19? That is based on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, which shipped with Linux 4.15.x as the default kernel. Since 18.04 is an LTS release of Ubuntu, the kernel that it shipped with will be supported by Ca...

kernel version and updates

I'm being prompted to install kernel version 4.15.0-66.75 by Update Manager. Looking on kernel.org, I see that there are several "4 series" kernels listed as long term: 4.19.80 and 4.14.150 among them. A little more digging and I find that the 4.15 branch (I assume that every minor version...

Re: dns-fix?!

If you look hard enough I'm sure you can find fault with just about anything... You're right, no distro is perfect. And rather than kvetch about this and do nothing to improve the situation, or simply accept it because I'm biased toward Mint, I'll contact the maintainer of the package to see if it ...

Re: dns-fix?!

Here's why I've got a problem with this: It's not only undocumented, it doesn't even have usage. It invokes sudo on the part of the user. It overwrites a system configuration file without warning. Sure it has a usage, it quickly replaces your DNS configuration with google's DNS servers and circumve...

Re: dns-fix?!

Hi cbrevard, It would certainly help if you explained what type of DNS problem you are having. Have you recently changed your DNS servers, if so how? I am not familiar with that program "dns-fix" or its usage, but normally all anyone has to do is to clear the DNS cache. linux ubuntu 18.04...

dns-fix?!

In the process of trying to diagnose an apparent caching problem, I came across the command `dns-fix`. Unfamiliar with it, I ran `man dns-fix`. No result. `dns-fix -h`. Again, nothing. Ditto for `dns-fix --help`. Finally, after running `dns-fix` alone, with no arguments and receiving no response in ...

Re: Epson V600 permissions?

After a good deal more of searching, I came across a post on this forum that referred me to an Ubuntu bug (https://bugs.launchpad.net/debian/+source/sane-backends/+bug/1707352).

[SOLVED] Epson V600 permissions?

I've got an Epson V600 scanner attached via USB to a box running Mint 19.1 (kernel version 4.15.0-54-generic). I attached it via USB 2 to my machine and ran Simple Scan, which indicated that I needed to "install driver software." Clicking on the quoted text, I was presented with a dialog b...
