SMTP Relay for Error Log Send via Gmail

I tried setting up Postfix, but no love. I'm using 19.2 and would like to have an email sent on certain script failures. I would like to use my personal Gmail account, which has 2nd factor authentication on it. I don't need help on the script side, just on the SMTP relay side. P.S. I just tried addi...

Re: Including Home with Timeshift?

Do you see where I'm going with this? I dug further into this TeeJee specifically suggest NOT to: Note: It is not recommended to include user data in backups as it will be overwritten when you restore the snapshot. Opinions abound on this, but what is your preferred method of backing up "Home?"

Including Home with Timeshift?

I currently keep an external SD card in my machine that I have TimeShift pointing to. I also backup the SD card to a cloud provider (pCloud). By default, TS doesn't back up Home, but it can be turned on. Since my Home is 82 GB, if I do this, I will need a larger card, but these are relatively cheap....

XPlayer No Sound .mp4 - Install Extra Multimedia Plugins

I have made some screencasts using SimpleScreenRecorder and when I go to play them back, XPlayer (my default) is prompting me to "Install extra multimedia plugins." When I click on on "Install" nothing happens, and the net result is no audio in the screencast. I can play these same videos back with ...

Need Help with Open With Wine Apps

Please no Wine or Photoshop hate mail :-) I had a properly configured version of CS2 that I was able to run from the Cinnamon Menu, but also from Nemo to open .PSD and or other graphics files. I have somehow lost the installation files and the former ways of installing/registering this may no longer...

Re: New laptop, can I just swap it's hard drive for my current one?

I just did this and it worked like a charm. As a precautionary step, I clone my existing drive to an external USB drive and booted to it from the new machine just to be sure. Nice to have a total system backup on ice as part of this. Once I was able to boot from the clone, I knew all would be OK whe...

Re: sync google drive on NTFS partition

The first step is to install RClone. The key thing is the rclone.conf file, but once you have your drives specified, you end up doing something like this (exact same thing works for GDrive). You would run something like this as a script via a cron: rclone --config /home/kenny/.config/rclone/rclone.c...

Noted. I would shrink enough on either side.
Note however that "free" in a filesystem-sense is not enough here; needs to be actually unpartitioned. Output of sudo fdisk -l /dev/sda rather than useless user-friendly gparted would show...

Re: Do I bother Switching to UEFI from Legacy for New Laptop?

No Windows on my drive, and plenty of free space. This is a project for another day, but I will likely tackle it. Thanks for looking over my shoulder.

This is doable with RClone, but IMHO the closed source InSync is the best option. They also now do OneDrive. I have been using it for years and they keep improving it.The

Re: Can I get Higher Resolution via HDMI than 1920x1080

@robim, after a bit of further experimentation, when I was using displayport directly, it was 2560x1600 (16x10). Is it just a question of modifying your commands to add the 16x10 as a 30hz output? xrandr --newmode "2560x1600_23.97" 95.00 2560 2608 2640 2720 1440 1443 1447 1457 +HSync -VSync xrandr -...

I ordered a USB-C Thunderbolt-->Displayport cable. I suspect that gets me to the higher resolution the monitor is capable of. I will report back.

Configuring one's system to one's liking can be laborious. Preserving what I have will keep me from many hours of tweaking.

Do I bother Switching to UEFI from Legacy for New Laptop?

Was running an older Thinkpad X230 with Mint 19.2. I Frankensteined the SSD over to a new Thinkpad T480 that I changed the settings for, so that it booted to "legacy" only. I was hopeful that the machine would just boot, and indeed it did. No issues. Should I leave well enough alone, or should I con...
