Re: Pixel 2 phone and mint

This is very odd, only the usb 2 port works the usb 3 ports do not. It is good that at least one works.

Thanks

Re: Mint update error

I found out that the repository is having known problems.
Is there a way to tell update manager to ignore this for a while and then I can tell it to update again when the problem is fixed?

Thanks

Re: Mint update error

I wonder what happened, because I have been getting updates from there for over a year. I also thought that those are the normal mint/ubuntu repositories. Well I guess I will try the PPA.

Thanks

Problem now is that right clicking on the Menu button flashes up the context menu then locks cinnamon up. Anyone have a way to fix this? Also if I want to go back to the Mint Men...

Re: Linux Ported Empire: Total War

If your hardware includes Intel HD4000 graphics you might try adding the following with the software manager.
libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0
libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0:i386
I was having problems similar to yours in Team Fortress 2 and that solved my problems.

Thanks

Found out that this only happened when I was using Deadbeef to play music and stream youtube.
Does not happen with other sound players. Very odd.
