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.

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...
