Re: How to do advanced Samba file sharing via script

Ok, that was great. Thank you very much. I followed it and I have the shared folders now and they work almost as expected. I have two questions though. 1. On the Windows computer which only has guest access, I can see all the shared folders, a login dialog is shown when I try to access them. Is it p...

Re: How to do advanced Samba file sharing via script

Thanks, I'll try it out and report back

Though don't I need to create samba passwords for the user accounts and also enable anonymous guest sharing in smb.conf somewhere?

Re: Monitor resolution not listed in xrandr and display settings

Thanks , I tried this and I can manually switch the resolutions now.
Is there a way to have it switch automatically between the half resolution and the full resolution when I turn on or off the picture by picture feature ?

Hi, I am using an LG Ultrawide 34" monitor with native resolution of 3440 x 1440 which is detected correctly. The monitor has a feature where it can split the screen and show two inputs side by side , so each side becomes 1720 x 1440 This is done via the EDID of the monitor. I recently upgraded from...

Re: Applications always open on the wrong monitor in a dual monitor setup

Ok, I think I might have a possible solution. Instead of keeping your displays side by side keep the primary display on top and the secondary on bottom, aligned to the left. Obviously this would be jarring if the displays are physically next to each other but in my case the secondary is my TV, off t...

I have Linux Mint running on an Intel processor in a dual monitor config (ultrawide 1080p + 4k TV). Whenever the secondary screen is enabled, applications always open up on the secondary screen. I've tried designating the secondary monitor as the 'right' monitor, checking Primary monitor in Display ...

Re: Problem syncing tabs with Xmarks

That's okay.... I know Xmarks issue cant be resolved here.
However, I just wanted to confirm if someone was using it and facing the same problem or if it is a problem only with my particular setup.

Mint Version

Hi Clem,

Why dont you sync the Mint and Ubuntu version numbers. After all Mint is only behind by 1.

For example... when the next version of Ubuntu comes out .. you can just advance the version number by one and make it straight to 11.

Just a suggestion, so that it will be easier for newbies
