Re: Mintbox mini 2 Pro

Just bought one, got it a couple of days ago. First impressions are that it's small, solid, comes with Mint 19.1, and works well. It's a full blow system as far as I can tell at least for it's purpose of being connected to our main TV for streaming and some browsing. One issue you might have is the ...

I also see the machine hasn't been rebooted for 126(!) days :roll: .. htop adds the (!) around 120 days I think .. about time I updated it, I suppose. Any special considerations i.e. should I shut down the FAH client first, or will it still resume where it left off? (Sorry, newbie question, but thi...

Re: Cinnamon is currently running without video hardware acceleration

Hi blankblankthe and welcome to the forum. Your inxi shows that the proprietary nvidia drivers are not loaded. You should probably run 'Driver Manager' from the Menu - Administration and see what is says. If it shows that 'nouveau' is loaded, then check the latest nvidia driver and reboot when you s...

The problem is number 2. Google uses the IP range 172.217.0.0-172.217.255.255, so I need to allow
all that. How is this done?
172.217.0.0/16 should allow 172.217.0.0 - 172.217.255.255.

Hi Pjotr,

I think you're sol, I looked around dconf Editor (org/nemo/desktop) but nothing there. Have you thought about not showing the desktop icons?

Re: Gufw firewall not working

sudo ufw status [sudo] password for user: WARN: /etc is world writable! WARN: /etc is group writable! Status: active This probably isn't the issue here but having /etc as world and group writable is not secure. Could you post the output from ls -l /etc ls -l /etc/gufw ls -l /etc/ufw

Re: Gufw firewall not working

If you didn't install and configure a VPN then you probably aren't using one, if ifconfig shows a 'tun0' or 'tun1' then you are using a VPN. Firejail, I didn't think of that. I use firejail as the 'simple method' firejailing only specific apps, not the 'full desktop integration' as explained here . ...

Re: Gufw firewall not working

I've had been using gufw for a couple of months without any issue. Last week I had to reinstall Linux Mint and from then on gufw simply doesn't work for me. I can use the firewall ufw from the terminal. All the commands work there correctly. Even when I enable ufw there, the profiles I made with gu...

Re: Gufw firewall not working

Is this the problem? I guess you'll have to delete /etc/gufw manually, rmdir won't remove a directory if there's files in it. I'd use nemo for this, right-click on a folder in the main window pane and select 'Open as Root', then navigate to /etc/ in the new nemo with elevated privileges so that the...

Re: Gufw firewall not working

Try apt purge gufw then apt policy gufw which should show (None) as installed, then apt install gufw again and see if that works. It should remove and reinstall your config files. Earlier you said that when you ran gufw from the command line you got no output in the terminal, but did you get the req...

Re: Gufw firewall not working

Did you try installing/reinstalling?

Code: Select all

apt install --reinstall gufw
Adding sudo infront is not necessary as it will ask for a password.

Re: Radio apps don't run after LM upgrade

Check if your old drive has a ~/.local/share/streamtuner or maybe ~/.config/streamtuner, if so then replace the directory on the new drive with the one from the old. I don't use streamtuner so can't say for sure. Re. radiotray, yes you can add shoutcast stations to radiotray. What I do is surf shout...

Re: Bought Nvisdia GTX 1050, what next?

Do you have a buddy with a desktop that you could test your card in or a nvidia card you could test in your desktop? If not you might want to think about exchanging the card.

Re: Radio apps don't run after LM upgrade

It should of been created when radiotray is first run. I think it's probably there but is hidden (any 'dot' '.' the prefaces the file/directory will hid it). In nemo, 'ctl-h' OR 'View - Show Hidden Files' will show all hidden files. Then click Home and scroll down to .local, you should be able to fi...
