Re: 19.3 - whine... 4 to 5?

The command-line apt wanted to install tons of stuff too, so I didn't do it that way.

After your

Code: Select all

apt update

Re: How to upgrade to Linux Mint 20

I tried it in a VM first and it went OK, so I did my workstation. Went OK, too! \o/

You can get it directly from WineHQ, which is what I did. Works great!

Re: LM 20 on vbox is FLAWLESS - EXCEPT for VLC & YouTube

I have LM 20 Cinnamon running in the newest VirtualBox on a LM 19.3 host and I'm not seing this unless I put a load on the VM (I just give it 2 CPUs). Maybe you need to give your VM more resources or tweak Win 10's settings?

I wonder if something else is going on? I don't see it being laggy on mine, even running in a VM?

Re: XnViewMP - segmentation fault in LM20 Cinnamon

OK, I got it working. I did a few things like uninstall qt5-gtk2-platformtheme and uninstalled and reinstalled qt5-gtk-platformtheme. I also ran qt5ct and having it rebuild my fonts config file. I think maybe since I copied lots of my .config files over that it had stuff from my 19.3 system in it? A...

Re: 19.3 to 20 upgrade broke Clementine

It looks like you don't have the libsqlite3 package, and maybe sqllite3 and libqt5sql5 packages, either.

Re: downloading you tube videos

For grabbing YT videos, I use JDownloader 2, which is a stand alone Java app. Works real well and can grab the video, or pick the audio, thumbnail, descriptioin text, or even subtitles. Super flexible and works with other sites too. :)

Re: Linux Mint 20 “Ulyana” Cinnamon released!

I would go the other way, to be safer. Backup all of your $HOME, making sure to get all the .* directories and files. Then you can restore the ones you need from there. I say that because theres ones that you don't realize you need until they're gone. Things like .local/share/rhythmbox (where your d...
