Re: Cannot seem to find "mouse movement preferences" on Linux Mint 19.3

Hmm, not sure you'll get anywhere with drivers. I'd suggest downgrading the kernel to whatever was running in your previous build, but I doubt it's worth the trouble and security risk. That's like a $6 mouse. (Maybe a resistor or capacitor blew on its board) I'd just replace it with something better...

Pointing to documentation that OP ASKED FOR is NOT advising them to make the change.
Yet again, OP seems to NOT want Windoze anyway.

Change it from RAID to AHCI.
Doing that will completely mess up the existing Windows setup

Should be in the BIOS at: Storage > Storage Options > SATA Emulation > AHCI/RAID. Change it from RAID to AHCI. Check Security > Device Security/USB Security/Slot Security settings if unable to change SATA Emulation Mode. You shouldn't need to disable Secure Boot with Mint, but in case you do, it's a...

Re: v20 Cinnamon - Change icon in lower right?

OK, there's a million of them in there and NOT in the Mint-Y-Dark theme that I'm using.
Any idea how I can find out which one the tray is pulling in?

Re: CLI Screenlock

Assuming Cinnamon, it's cinnamon-screensaver-command --lock && sudo systemctl suspend.
You should be greeted with the lock screen at power up.

Re: Can't use Timeshift, using NTFS backup drive, what do I use?

So you have an external NTFS drive?
Can't you just partition off part of that and format as EXT4 for your backup?
You can always delete it and resize the NTFS partition back into the unallocated space later.

Re: Some of tray icons are changing to a circle with a line on the center

Same here. The only one I've noticed so far is KeePassXC. The app itself I have set to autostart at boot for Master PW entry and it seems to hang for about 10-15 seconds while bringing the window up and another 20-30 after PW entry. When it finally minimizes, it's the circle/line icon. CTRL+ALT+ESC ...

v20 Cinnamon - Change icon in lower right?

How can I change the icon in the tray for Transmission?
Everything else seems to be following the theme and are white while Transmission is bright red.
It's driving me nuts.
