Re: Dell vostro 3520 Laptop does not wake up from sleep or suspend

On Power Management settings I've changed the lid behavior to 'immediate shutdown' and all others to 'never' so to not excellently let it overheat and burn the CPU/Motherboard... That sounds like a good idea. The output you posted shows a crash which involves the Intel graphics driver, but I don't ...

Re: Cinnamon Desktop stays empty

The empty desktop is since around 3 weeks (in my feeling much longer) Does this mean you this was already happening before you installed Xfce? EDIT: did not fix it The cinnamon-monitors.xml file is not a problem. Do you have a monitors.xml file on your system? I'm thinking KDE or Xfce might have cr...

Re: Lenovo Miix 320 touchscreen issue

I think the issue starts once I detach the screen from the keyboard, the screen still works but the touchscreen doesn’t. Not until I disable and enable it using xinput. How are you disabling/enabling if the keyboard is detached and the touchscreen does not work? I have to reconnect the screen to th...

Re: hardware rendering not working?

That idea did cross my mind as something to try, but my concern is adding more kernels will just add to the problem of your drive being to full and you might not be able to get in af...

Re: What should I expect when upgrading?

When one has a separate home partition, we recommend the root partition...

Why would you expect that?

What was posted is a standard output of a Linux Mint 21.3 install. WirePlumber is not part of LM21 installs.

Thanks, I did that. It does not ask for updating to 6.5.0-27, so that is good. Can I just remove 6.5.0-27 from even showing as possible update version?. If you selected to ignore the update, then I wouldn't think it would show? I've never blocked anything so I don't really know. I presume you will ...
