[Solved] Calendar app shows UTC?

This bizarre situation was being caused by a Linux Mint 17 / Linux Mint 18 dual boot configuration. When I boot from the hard disk where 18 is installed, everything works as expected. However, when booting from the disk where 17 is installed (and choosing 18 from the GRUB menu), somehow UTC was bein...

Re: Unable to boot into LVM/LUKS on second disk

It turns out that the problem involved the way the LUKS encrypted partition was unlocked. I had be using the GUI tools to unlock it, by clicking and entering the passphrase. My guess is that this confuses things somehow by assigning a different label to the encrypted partition. It appears that the e...

[SOLVED] Unable to boot into LVM/LUKS on second disk

I'm running 17.2 on my first hard disk inside a LUKS partition and now I'm trying to install a dual boot scenario on a second disk. I successfully installed 18.3 into a LUKS partition on the second disk (sdb) with these partitions (among others): sdb1 boot sdb4 LUKS I used LVM inside the LUKS partit...

Re: Grub bootloader location in LVM over LUKS dual boot

Yep, adding -b prevented the boot loader drop-down choice from even showing up. Thanks!

[Solved] Grub bootloader location in LVM over LUKS dual boot

I have a similar configuration to the one described in this tutorial: LVM over LUKS triple boot . However, when installing the 2nd OS, I do NOT want to overwrite the MBR in /dev/sda, since any failure doing that could prevent me from booting the 1st OS without repairing the grub configuration. I wou...

Re: Caja stopped mounting audio cds for Sound Juicer

After rebooting into a Mint 18.1 live cd and testing, then rebooting back, things are unchanged, but magically fixed. :cry:

Caja stopped mounting audio cds for Sound Juicer

I open caja in Mint 17.2 and can see Audio Disc in the left panel. When I click on the audio disk icon, the tracks become visible in the right panel. However, I am no longer able to hover over a track to hear it, nor is double clicking on a track able to open Sound Juicer. The message I get when I d...

Re: How to disable password prompts in Mint 14?

Obviously you need to be very careful when using this, but it makes sense in many scenarios (e.g. a Linux Mint VM). This is from http://askubuntu.com/questions/98006/ cat <<EOF | sudo tee /etc/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d/nopasswd.pkla [No password prompt] Identity=unix-group:sudo Action=* Res...

Re: Disk Image Writer: lists blank DVD as "Read-Only"

I have the same problem. Brasero can burn an iso file to my cd/dvd writer just fine, but using Nemo and selecting the iso file and choosing Open With Disk Image Writer has my cd/dvd drive greyed out. My userid is the cdrom group. Any solutions other than "use brasero"? $ inxi -Fxdz System: Host: anj...

Re: LVM + Full Disk Encryption - Priority ONE

Yes, yes, yes! Please add full-disk encryption to Linux Mint. I so want to try it, but this is indeed a deal breaker. And I'm not really in love with using a workaround in order to get it installed with full disk encryption -- I'd like it to be in the actual distribution.

Re: Linux Mint 13 encrypted LVM support?

I need this functionality. I'd love to try Mint, but there's no point if I can't easily and reliably get the encrypted LVM configuration that makes sense for my machine.

Helena hangs at start of ubiquity install

I'm trying to install Helena on a Dell Latitude C640 laptop. After booting the CD, when I click "Install Linux Mint 8" it works for a few seconds, brings up a "Install" button of some kind on the task bar (sometimes -- I noticed this once or twice), and then hangs. Same thing happens when I run ubiq...
