Re: Mint 20 beta - How to install chromium-browser.

You will be responsible for downloading a fresh version at intervals of your choosing to ensure you are keeping up with any security related fixes. Does Chromium warn me when there is an update?

[SOLVED] Re: Zoom: video webcam freezes after a few minutes

Shame on me: I renewed the cooling paste; temperatures now below 60 degrees. No more freezing webcam.

Thansk for your help; I really feel a bit ashamed now. I should have thought of this.

Re: Zoom: video webcam freezes after a few minutes

While it still appears to me to be a USB issue, have you tried smurphos's suggestion of the 5.3.0-45 kernel yet?
I tried this morning: same problem.
But: CPU temperature rise up to 105 degrees. Both fans are running.

We've been having trouble with Zoom all morning. It works for a while and then quits. Sometimes it won't connect to a meeting. I suspect that the problem might be on their end.
The other participants (windows I suppose) do not have any troubles.

Re: Why can't I send files to trash?

Due to a system crash, I had to reinstall Mint.

System crash probably caused by use of ecrypt-utils a few days ago. Glad I had backups.

Re: Why can't I send files to trash?

I reinstalled Nemo: no success.

I installed Thunar and Nautilus: same wrong behavior!
I think I have to reinstall Mint before I loose important files.
