Re: High processor usage for one user

It looks like nobody has a easy answer for this one. So let me ask this, how do I non-destructively restore default settings for her user profile? I would have liked to found the sub process of Cinnamon that is causing the problem but I'm guessing from the lack of replies that is either not possible...

High processor usage for one user

19.1 Cinnamon When I log in myself as user there is no issue. When my mother is logged in the system is running at a minimum of 45% processor usage even right after a reboot. This is just at the desktop. When I look at the System Monitor I see that it is Cinnamon itself that is consuming all of thos...

Re: What's Your Opinion on Self-Driving Cars?

The problem as I see it is going to be the grey period where the technology needs oversight from the driver. The best use for this tech is in my view long haul driving. City driving and commute driving are both better off in the hands of a capable driver.

Re: Social Media is Draining You

The term social media should be renamed anti-social media. Look at most people on a bus or train and they will be staring intently at the phone in their hands, utterly oblivious of the world around them. For this reason alone I really dislike smart phones. They're useful but they turn people into i...

Re: Folding@home-Team Linux Mint-76140

Agree with Bern, 72c is fine for a CPU under heavy load. You should still have plenty of thermal overhead.

Re: Social Media is Draining You

I believe it was Facebook people who openly admitted on stage (IE recorded) that they deliberately designed their systems to dopamine hook people in. So of course it is a drain. Back in the 90's there was a company by the name of Mirabilis, they wrote a program called ICQ. That little app was effect...

I never was able to last more than a day on Windows 10. I just found it repulsive.

Hmm, I wonder how Windows Seven is affected by this. Or is it effected. Maybe worse, impacted.

Re: Folding@home-Team Linux Mint-76140

Is there a way to tell to program to only use X% of the GPU? The low/medium/full slider only seems to have an affect on the CPU. I think I saw an answer to this recently on the FAH forums but I'm pretty sure the answer is no. I think that is an innate product of the GPU architecture unlike the CPU ...

Re: Folding@home-Team Linux Mint-76140

Okay thanks anyway. If nobody here knows I will get around to asking over on the FAH forums. It is a confusing flag since the GPU is working. I'm just a bit reluctant to fool around with it unless I know what it is doing. :?

Re: Folding@home-Team Linux Mint-76140

Does anyone know any tricks or config settings that will help the client to find more jobs for the GPU? It's been going for about 13 hours now and I don't think it's had one job. I've skimmed through this configuration-guide . I guess I don't really know what I'm looking at or for. BTW, what I have...
