My home folder is now my home/desktop folder after copying my home folder from another installation

I've installed Mint 19.1 and I've copied my home folder from my previous LMDE2 installation, both Cinnamon editions. Yes, I know LDME and the main edition have different bases but I thought just the personal home folder wouldn't hurt copying over. I got most my personal definitions imported into Min...

Re: Recording Video On Linux Using DSLR

Hi! Just thinking about this eventual solution... If your camera doesn't directly allow timelapse, why don't you buy a grip for your camera that does it? I got one for my Canon EOS 1000D. It has a timelapse configurable options, apart from some of the most important buttons for photographing, includ...

Re: Need a cheap USB soundcard. Any recommendations?

My guess is that this device is usb standards compliant---and will be Linux compatible. It works! :mrgreen: The sound is very chewed up and processed, and I have to increase the bass in order to listen to things a bit more properly equalized, but for €1 the thing sure works. I go to the sound setti...

Re: How to prepare for keeping LMDE2 after EOL?

I've tried LMDE3 and it really is still a beta, it's not polished enough. Thanks for letting me know At the moment, I'm keeping myself in LMDE2. My system is so heavily modified (and I didn't write down all the changes I've made) that it cannot upgrade, it brakes. Besides this, just now I've been a...

Re: Firefox ESR 52.9 last one on Jessie (LMDE 2)?

At the moment, I am running 60.4.0esr (64-bit). You must have locked yourself on that version of FIrefox, it's likely that you're holding that package. Have you tried running sudo apt held If Firefox-esr is listed on the output, you've locked yourself. You can unlock yourself with sudo apt unhold fi...

Re: Nemo runs CPU usage at about 80% when opening the root of a partition and does not show contents

Funny... If I format this partition with NTFS or EXT3, it all works fine. Nemo is not liking this partition having EXT4! Even funnier and weird: If I delete this partition on Gparted and recreate an unformatted one, the system will pick up the previous EXT4 partition and all the data it had there be...

Nemo runs CPU usage at about 80% when opening the root of a partition and does not show contents

I'm having trouble accessing the partition I've destined for documents on a SSD drive. Nemo runs CPU usage at about 80% and it does not show the contents of the root of that partition. Sometimes, if I open some shortcut for a folder inside that partition, Nemo opens it no problem (others, it chews u...

Re: Need a cheap USB soundcard. Any recommendations?

Thanks, @MrEen. So I guess it's more a question of the chip that card is built upon. I've never seen any mention of what's the chip on any of these selling pages. I wonder if the €1 card I've given the link will work. No idea of what chip is it using, nor how to build a script go get it running. But...

I don't have a headphone jack on my new laptop. Yes, they can already be shipped without these! :cry: I have a bluetooth speaker that does the job, but I also have some headphones that I'd like to plug in for the stereo and privacy. For this, I've seen some cheap USB soundcards on eBay like this one...

Re: Troubleshoot trackpad

Just to make sure if this is a software or hardware problem...


Are you sure the trackpad failure is due to software?

Are you sure the hardware is working ok?

Have you tried any other OS on that machine (Windows, or some Linux Mint boot ISO) for testing, and it all works perfectly?

Re: grub 2

Yes, you're right. You shouldn't edit the grub.cfg file. You can, but the next time a new kernel is installed or you or something runs update-grub, those settings will be overwritten and you'll have to do it all again. The correct way to do things is to edit the /etc/default/grub file. In there, you...

Re: Will Debian provide security updates after LMDE2's end of support after January 2019?

Good point, Zorzi.

This means at some point the Mint and Debian's repos won't be providing Firefox regular updates. Just the ESR versions then? Can someone please clarify? Thanks.

Thanks, xenopeek,

I already have

deb http://http.debian.net/debian jessie-backports main

in my sources. I assume this is good enough to keep this old machine at least for a couple more years. This ends up not being that bad at all for those of us running LMDE2.
