Re: Installed Joplin on LMDE4 - will not start

I would appreciate any comment on this. The first port of call is the joplin site and the documentation overview on the front page. When you do that, you read this: If it works with your distribution (it has been tested on Ubuntu, Fedora, and Mint ; the desktop environments supported are GNOME, KDE...

Re: LMDE 4 - Add a VPN account

I have tried ExpressVPN in LMDE/4 It worked very well (it's not free though ) However: I'm not sure what a VPN is supposed to protect us from unless we are using a laptop in a coffee shop ?? granted a VPN can stop your ISP from monitoring your browsing habits. BUT: I think the real tracking goes on...

Re: LMDE 4 - Add a VPN account

Okey, the last I said about "having the .ovpn files for years", sound bad. Sorry about that, but the same VPN was working a month ago on my previous Mint 20 install, that crashed during an initramfs issue after a simple update that I couldn't solve. Therefore to be able to have a more sta...

Re: LMDE 4 - Add a VPN account

thats why I think there is no problem at the provider end. That's why you can't solve this, you've created an XY problem , and in doing so have convinced yourself that the problem is not what it actually is thereby failing to recognise a probable cause of the issue, if not the actual cause... I hav...

Re: LMDE 4 - Add a VPN account

You should really post LMDE support questions in the LMDE section of this forum. Debian isn't Ubuntu and you will get answers for Ubuntu based Mint that won't work in LMDE. It may not matter for a Cinnamon related question but if you're talking about network connectivity per se it probably would. S...

Re: LMDE 4 - Add a VPN account

I've been using Mint since many years back, and it have been very easy to add a VPN account. Nothing has changed. You need the .ovpn files from your VPN service provider, which you then import into Network Manager. Sorry to say, but I can't find any Network Manager, and the Network Settings have no...

LMDE 4 - Add a VPN account

Hi, I've been using Mint since many years back, and it have been very easy to add a VPN account, and easy to select that when I needed the privacy now and then. Now I have switched to LMDE 4 with Cinnamon desktop, and I find it hard to understand how I could add my current VPN account to be able to ...

Re: Installed LMDE 4 but Cinnamon menu texts disappear after while with screensaver on

I found the /etc/environment file and added the settings. I should wait see if this will be enough to let the menu text to be okey. If not I maybe go for your suggestion. A quick search for RX550, I found a ASUS PH-RX550-4G card with max resolution of 5120x2880, but with no info about frequency. My ...

Update:

The change of settings yesterday seem to have solved the problem so far.
