Re: cinnamon-session update broke a start up app. err: Failed to change directory ""

Well I solved it by updating the path var in the *.desktop file. vi /home/me/.config/autostart/lmc.desktop I noticed that Path= had no argument I tried tilde ~ but it didn't like that either. or anything with double or single qoutes So I put the literal path of my user home directory. No idea if it ...

Code: Select all

Thank you!
I'm not sure why this option isn't in the Cinnamon GUI. I don't want my PC discoverable except when pairing is required.

Re: Set default input[recording] device persistant

Thank you *AGAIN*!

That's good enough for me. I rarely use the webcam. I can just turn the profile back on when I use it.

Set default input[recording] device persistant

Hello all.
Mint 19.3.
I have headphones and a webcam I rarely use.
I'd like to set the default input device to the headphones instead the OS defaults to the webcam which I have to always change back.

How can I make the headphones the persistent default input device?

Thanks for any help :)

Re: Mint 19 Upgrade - Vino gone?

Oddly, it opposite is true for me! Every machine I've tried to set x11VNC up on and then remotely connect to, I've had nothing but issues (black screens, etc). Yet with Vino, everything works fine! So, in my case at least, for some reason, Vino is the one I prefer for that reason! Same here. I tool...

Searching inside files in 19.2 Nemo

Hello all.
Is there an easy way to search inside files from the desktop manager instead of grepping from the command line?

Re: 19.2 Cinnamon independant headphones/speakers?

I know there's a better way to accomplish this, but it means editing a bunch of files in /usr/share/pulseaudio/alsa-mixer/paths/ that could take forever to figure out the right combination of edits so I'd rather continue on the present path. Use alsamixer to set everything working again, then try t...

By the way, the speakers are most likely the Line column in alsamixer. When we get there, the command will be amixer set Line toggle My t...

Okay, it appears pulseaudio is running now.

What happens if you enter amixer -D pulse set Headphone toggle? That should toggle mute; i.e. if it's muted, it unmutes, and vice versa.

Code: Select all
