Re: Copy Protected DVD's + Cautionary Tale

Curious issue. Perhaps copy protection was not the issue, but rather the dvd player's laser pickup was weak and could not read beyond the first layer. In this event it could still read dvd size of 4.7gb but could not read the newer 8.5gb movies, most of which ae copy protected. Maybe that was it; t...

Re: Copy Protected DVD's + Cautionary Tale

Purely from memory , I think 5 region changes are allowed ( it's controlled by the firmware in the DVD drive ) . The fifth time gives a warning message , and I tested it ..... there is no going back after that :wink: Thanks for all the help but, that wasn't the issue. I'm an American and all my DVD...

Re: Copy Protected DVD's + Cautionary Tale

Thinking outside the square here, could your problem be something along the line of region coding? Many players will allow change of region only a few times before they are locked forever in one region. Having never experienced the problem, I cannot be more specific. As I implied, might be totally ...

Copy Protected DVD's + Cautionary Tale

Hello everyone, To hopefully save someone a little bit of time if they ever run into the same issue I had, I thought I'd share this information. My issue was that I could not play a copy-protected DVD of any type. I also could not use Handbrake to transcode one. After hours and hours of reading the ...

Re: Question about auto-mounting commercial DVDs

If I attach an external USB LG slim portable DVD writer (model SP80NB80), put in Swordfish and close the drawer, Mint doesn't prompt me for any action to take. Thanks in advance for any ideas and assistance you can provide! Peace... System Settings/Preferred Applications/Removable Media and you can...

Re: How can I make the system return a different Date Format?

I use a shortcut for date a lot, as I date all of my personal notes, letters, whatever.... and it keeps returning the 'year' at the end of the string, which is aggravating for me. Thu Sep 20 17:10:02 CDT 2018 is how it is being returned to my documents, and the forum also. My preference would simpl...

I am running Mint on a computer for 4 years now, without a single hitch.
Whoa now, that is great. Even the most seasoned posters here have had a glitch here and there. I'm gonna keep my eye on you. :D

Is Mint Tessla going to be the final fix

and finally an OS will be perfected and there will be no needs for updates? Can I not worry about anything for about 20 years? I guess 19.1 Tessla is going to be here in Sept/Nov.?

Hi everyone,

I appreciate everyone's help so far.

I installed Linux MATE and:
  • Updated kernel to 4.18.7
  • Tried the different desktop settings (Compton does seem to work the best, but there is still flickering)
  • Created the Tear Free file
Unfortunately, the flicker remains...

[Solved] Menu Editor + Add a .swf file from hard-drive

I have a bunch of old Atari Shockwave flash games that I would like to add to the menu under the games category. These games are stored in a folder on the hard-drive. Using Menu Editor/Command/Browse and linking the location of the game doesn't work. Is there a way to add these games to Menu Editor?...

Hi, Phd21 So far, it seems to be working much more satisfactorily- I do realise that time will tell- I seem to be very clumsy with the terminal, even pasting. I really appreciate you taking the time to answer my posts. Kind regards D Go to Update Manager and update your apt cache. Go back and check...

Re: Can I still use kernel 3.19.8?

Now that I've been researching, the patches for those vulnerabilities bring some 'problems' to the CPU. They can slow down the CPUs performance up to 30%. I've been thinking about my slow performance I had with kernel 4.4, after suspending and waking up my PC. I don't know if that problem could be ...

Re: Rhythmbox cover art?

Hi, all I used the line you suggested, then reinstalled Lollypop. Unfortunately, I still have the same problem- first, when I click on this album, it shows a random list of tracks, then the album disappears altogether. Very frustrating. I've also found Lollpop to be unstable on my system, freezing ...

Hi CtrlAltDel, FYI: I booted into a version of Kubuntu 18.04 like Linux Mint 19, installed Lollypop using their PPA and I have the same screens as you do with Lollypop and dconf editor. There is no Lollypop menu entry for checking "Network" like I had in Linux Mint 18.3 although anyone can enable n...

I do not see any differences in the 3 screenshots you just posted? Am I missing something? The repeats were a mistake. I have r...
