Re: GRUB timeout in LM20

Any adjustment to /etc/default/grub must be made as root and followed up by sudo update-grub Until the transition from 19.3 to 20.0 is completed I suggest that you set the timeout to 2. It can be reduced later. I did this in terminal and updated as suggested. I am happy with 1 sec as if I need to g...

Re: GRUB timeout in LM20

on most of my dual_boot PCs, the time out is set to either 10s or 5s, & depending on which system, that I'm tending to load the most often. and I've an preference for some sort of delay, as that will still give access to the other system.

Re: GRUB timeout in LM20

... so modified the GRUB_TIMEOUT=0 but then it takes 10secs to boot from GRUB. I changed this to 3 and the delay was as I expected 3 secs. When I changed back to 0 it took 10secs. This is a known behavior of GRUB, where a value of zero defaults to 10. I don't know why, but I'm sure you can find pas...

GRUB timeout in LM20

I have clean installed LM20 to my second SSD (sdb) with LM19.3 on sda. I have legacy bios and have set my boot drive as sdb so that I can customise LM20 to my specs as I have in LM19.3, as shown in my other topic here https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=323356. When my machine boots it...

Re: No startup Sound in LM20 MATE

Can;t believe it. The startup sound has stopped working again. Checked that startup command and it is unchanged. It's late now and will get back to this tomorrow.

Re: No startup Sound in LM20 MATE

Those other things (ClearWeatherScreenlet and such) are a separate issue. Change the command for your sound startup thing adding the word play to the front of the command followed by a space: play /usr/share/sound/linux.... Did that to no avail. BTW, in 19.3 the command is preceded by paplay? Weird

Re: No startup Sound in LM20 MATE

Just click on the plus button as in that image to add the new startup thingamajig. Don't worry about what is in that window compared to yours. Or run your 19.3 and look to see if you have anything indicating a startup sound in the same window. I checked 19.3 and yes it does have a command to play L...

Re: No startup Sound in LM20 MATE

Ahh, it looks like you need to create a startup application for this in MATE. Maybe you did something similar in 19.3? This site has instructions that should work for you. First of all I do not recall doing anything in 19.3 for startup sound. However, went to that link and the first item Certificat...

Yeah, it was already installed. See this image and try changing the Theme to something else in your Sound Preferences.
Tried that but no startup sound. Actually I am watching a football match live and the sound is fine.

Okay, run apt install libcanberra-pulse then reboot and see if the startup sound works.

EDIT: I still suspect you already have it. It's a package, not a file.
Did that and got this.

Re: No startup Sound in LM20 MATE

Do make sure libcanberra-pulse is installed, but I suspect it already is.
Checked this out but it does not seem to be on my system.

Re: No startup Sound in LM20 MATE

Here is the playback tab.
Screenshot at 2020-07-05 19-34-01.png
I altered the sound level to no avail. Another thing, under Output Devices, if I move the volume level up or down it makes beeping noises. However, under Playback tab no noise is emitted when you move the level bar?

Re: Clean install of LM20 on second SSD, was: Linux Mint 20 “Ulyana” Cinnamon released!

Having got my clean install of LM20 up front and running, what files do I need from my 19.3 install on the other sda to copy to my LM20 version on sdb? I am referring to things like Thunderbird settings, ksnip and other software that I have installed in LM19.3?

Re: No startup Sound in LM20 MATE

What seems to be referring to there is that sound is not working at all. In my case the sound works fine but when LM20 starts up I do not get the startup sound happening. Not a big thing but the fact is on 19.3 that I have installed on the same machine but on a different SSD that startup sound works...
