Re: Steam games won't launch

My recommendation would be 2) Remove Proton, SteamLinux, Soldire, etc. in SteamLibrary>/steamapps/common Shouldn't the Steam software do that by itself? Know exactly what makes and brakes a game from working and take care of it out of the box automatically? If they have the team for it and are char...

Re: NO option to upgrade to 20.1

@Aguy namedTee,
Can you please edit the subject of the original title of the post and add a [SOLVED] before it, i.e.

[SOLVED] NO option to upgrade to 20.1

So anyone with the same problem can quickly know there is a solution to that problem here?
Thanks and I'm glad you managed to solve it.
Cheers!

Re: webapp-manager opens but does nothing on Mint20.1

OK, done, solved! I've deleted all the other Firefox profiles and set my own as the default one. The trash is clean. And since I have a copy of the ESR shortcut named just Firefox, the webapp-manager is also working fine. I'm editing the original post on the top to add a TLDR solution and marking th...

Re: webapp-manager opens but does nothing on Mint20.1

For what I've understood, each web app has its own separate profile. This can be interesting if you have multiple apps from multiple accounts opened, so accounts will not see each other. These profiles are being created inside /home/bruno/.local/share/ice/firefox. If you mess up with the shortcuts a...

Re: webapp-manager opens but does nothing on Mint20

Hi RIH, Your piece of information was vital to get it almost working. Many thanks! Yes it was due to removing the original Firefox. I've tried it and it solved the problem. Meanwhile, there are still some problems and I'm trying new solutions and approaches. In order not to duplicate everything, I'm...

Re: webapp-manager opens but does nothing on Mint20.1

Yes, installing the regular Firefox makes it work. Many thanks to @RIH on the OP. But somethings still need trimming. I've got a defective new Firefox installation, and I think it might be related with the usrmerge thing, my guess. Both Synaptic and apt gave me this error: (translated because I'm us...

how did you upgrade from mint20 to 20.1
I've upgraded through the Update Manager. No errors nor anything out of the regular to report.

(I'll install the default non-ESR Firefox from the repos and then report back if it makes any difference)

Re: Steam games won't launch

The very thing happened to me while trying to play The Stanley Parable Demo on Steam. In fact, I was never able to get anything running on Steam (Doom 2016, Doom Eternal (both torrents) and The Stanley Parable Demo, downloaded through Steam). Gave it up! Specially for The Stanley Parable Demo (I got...

Can WINE / PlayOnLinux reach the internet?

I've tried to install DooM Eternal and I've managed to make it install and start after a messy set of trial and error. But then the game says it cannot reach Bethesda online for the creation account. Firewalls and such were turned off for testing purposes, with no results. So my question is, can WIN...

Re: NO option to upgrade to 20.1

What repos are you using? Some repos might need a couple of days top max to sync. Or, with everyone trying to suck the data out of them, they might get overwhelmed. Have you tried to change your repos back to the default ones, or after this time of wait, tried again to check if your repos are alread...

Re: Can Mint 20 control the battery charging threshold?

Try to set supervisor password in UEFI. Maybe then you will have more options available. That's how I managed to disable Secure Boot. Regardless, disabling UEFI is out of reach. I hate UEFI as it makes no sense to me having a separate partition to hold the keys, that should be done on the hardware....

Hi Jože, and thanks for your reply! Well, it seems I'm left to die in the water regarding this one. My BIOS is quite simple and offers no control over this. In fact, it's so simple I cannot even disable UEFI and it's not even obvious on how to disable Secure Boot. I don't think I have any Windows so...

Re: Can Mint 20 control the battery charging threshold?

That's very outdated battery thinking. Modern battery chemistry isn't hampered by such quirks that plagued older battery technologies. I partly agree, yet they are not immortal and will live longer if managed to be cooled and maintained around ~40 - ~80% charge, I believe. It's just plain Physics a...
