Re: Linux 20 preferences>colour application problem

I believe that for using argyll functions you need an external calibration device. But I am not very knowledgeable regarding that. For one of my notebooks I use color profile from notebookcheck.com test report, for other computers I managed to correct monitor colors with xgamma (simple shell script ...

Re: Linux 20 preferences>colour application problem

If you have color profile file you can add it, "Ad profile", select "Other profile...", navigate to the color profile file and import it (if not succesful, try it again). Other possibility for monitor color correction is xgamma, for instance: xgamma -rgamma 1.0 -ggamma 1.0 -bgamma 0.8 If I remember ...

If you wish that someone helps you, you should provide more details. Read "how to get help", particularly section [5]. Are you sure you installed Linux Mint?

Re: Mint 20 Shutdown

No, as long as you have the alt key pressed. Dependent on the problem, I've found sometimes it works, sometimes not. Alternatives: I've found that when shutdown now doesn't work in a terminal, halt -f does, but not always and of course you need access to a terminal I added "kernel.sysrq=1" to the f...

If shutting down with the power button - DON'T. Try Alt + PrtScn + REISUO (shutdown) or REISUB (reboot). Keep the Alt key pressed for the whole sequence.
What are REISUO and REISUB?

Re: What distro would you use for your main daily driver other than Mint?

I'm going to use bad language - Windows 8.1 is a decent operating system for daily usage too. It may sound daft but it works perfectly well and does not have all the nonsense that comes with W10. It's basically Windows LTS since there are no more feature updates for it, only security now. I agree w...

Re: How often do you change user password

My password, though memorable, is over 16 characters long and I haven't changed it in 5+ years. But, I do have to enter it three times when booting: 1. To get past the DELL TPM hardware embedded security. 2. To get past LM full disk encryption. 3. To login to LM as a user. Cool, but can be improved...

Re: Samba and Mint20

SMB1 protocol is very old and vulnerable. I would rather not use it. My opinion is that the device that can communicate only over SMB1 is for discard.
