Re: Screenshot bug

I believe so. But it could be something you've coded yourself. I'm not certain. Excuse me, I didn't quite understand. I will try to take screenshots with delay though. Is this related to vsync? Cinnamon will use compositing and vsync but the nvidia driver will/can also use vsync. You can test with ...

Re: Screenshot bug

Hi Kurogane, This just popped into my head. Are your screenshot instantaneous, or do you have a delay set? If they're the former, try using a 2 second delay to see if that works properly. Hello! Yes, I do instant screenshots using Print Screen key. Could you please explain how can I set up a delay....

Screenshot bug

Hi, everyone! I am using Mint 20 Cinnamon, the default screenshot tool, and NVIDIA 390 driver. When I take a screenshot, I get my desktop background and everything that is in it - shortcuts, conky, panel, - all of those end up in the foreground of my screenshot, blocking the actual content that is o...

Re: Zoom CPU/Memory usage for video calls

I never used Zoom, but my University uses Microsoft Teams for online classes. In my case Teams desktop app, maybe, didn't clearly used less system resources but it was much more faster and responsive than the web version both on Windows and not on Mint 20. It's basically the same app, no difference ...

Re: Print Screen Issue

Hey! I was just going to post about this issue, great that I found this thread. I am using Mint 20 Cinnamon, the default screenshot tool, and NVIDIA 390 driver. I have exactly the same issue. When I take a screenshot, I get my desktop background and everything that is in it - shortcuts, conky, panel...

Re: [SOLVED] Dual Boot system boots straight into Windows 10

Glad you got it working and found the config file. To answer the question about installing rEFInd to the internal drive, I don't think it will work. I'd expect that to be trapped by the same problem which keeps Grub from working, i.e., that Windows will trump both in NVRAM. By the way, I don't know...

Re: Dual Boot system boots straight into Windows 10

Alternatively, there's the trick I mentioned earlier. On my HP with Insyde UEFI, I had success with this workaround from Unix & Linux . Basically, you leave Windows in first position in NVRAM, but deactivate it. These commands should do it on your system: sudo efibootmgr --bootnum 0000 --inactive s...

Re: Dual Boot system boots straight into Windows 10

Ahem, I told you Grub wasn't going to solve the problem. Did you ever try the bcdedit solution? Yes, I did! I posted the results earlier, but I guess, it wasn't relevant to further work on the issue. bcdedit shows grubx64.efi as path, but the PC still restarts into W10. Try changing boot order with...

Re: Dual Boot system boots straight into Windows 10

The entry ‘GRUB_DEFAULT=0’ is the boot order. Changing the ‘0’ to ‘1’ should put the second OS, Mint, as the one the M/C boots into by default. From a terminal after the $ type sudo xed /etc/default/grub After entering you password make the change then save the file and exit. Next, again from the $...

Re: Dual Boot system boots straight into Windows 10

From within Mint (not Windows) and as an ordinary user, not as root, can you post the output of please cat /etc/grub/default Sorry, I've started using Mint just recently, so I don't know how to run something not as root, could you elaborate please? Also did, you mean: cat /etc/default/grub ? I get ...

Re: Dual Boot system boots straight into Windows 10

Go to your BIOS and turn secure boot back on. See if you can add shimx64.efi as a trusted bootloader. Sorry, could you explain further if I need to do all of this in BIOS settings? I tried turning on secure boot, it boots me right into W10 again, but I booted Mint using boot menu, it started to lag...

Re: Dual Boot system boots straight into Windows 10

sudo efibootmgr -o 1 The command places the Ubuntu entry at the top of the boot list, in theory. So if I understand you right, that command allows you to reboot into Mint only once? Or not at all? No, unfortunately, not a single time. I've run the command on several restarts, verified it by typing ...

Re: Dual Boot system boots straight into Windows 10

-- This is exactly the main reason why I don't install any Linux distro into the same storage drive as Windows. Windows mbr and LInux grub never, and probably never will, play nicely together. One always ends up overtaking the other. It's always best to install Windows and Linux distros into separa...

Re: Dual Boot system boots straight into Windows 10

Sometimes the option is called hard drive bbs priorities. Sometimes you need at the Linux boot loader as trusted. Every bios is different. Try digging through the options. Anyway try this sudo efibootmgr -o 1 The only thing that comes to my mind about such setting, is maybe setup mode of secure boo...

Re: Dual Boot system boots straight into Windows 10

Can you find an option in your BIOS to reorder the boot entries to put ubuntu on top? That's the préfère y solution. We can also try to force it with the command line but that doesn't always stick. I was trying, but I couldn't do it. Both Windows Boot Manager and Ubuntu are at SATA1 in BIOS, and I ...

[SOLVED] Dual Boot system boots straight into Windows 10

Hello! Recently I've installed Mint 20 Cinnamon on my PC alongside W10, and so far my experience with it is amazing! After being a Windows-only user for maybe 15 years, Linux systems are like revelations to me. I suppose that I've installed everything correctly and at the moment I can boot into both...
