Re: Boot times in Linux

nmbd and smbd used to be part of samba, I don't know if they still are or not, I see nothing in the repos for nmbd or as a samba dependency. Gets me wondering if you upgraded from 18.3? To check the status of nmbd.service, systemctl status nmbd.service . If its has stopped or has faulted and you wan...

Re: Boot times in Linux

Do you know the command to disable Modem Manager given that it is unlikely that I'll ever need one in this machine again. Would it be along the lines of sudo systemctl disableModemManager-wait-online.service ? I'm still learning the appropriate commands and their syntax in terminal. Yes, along the ...

Re: Boot times in Linux

I think that systemd-analyze only measures the time between hitting the enter in Grub to the login prompt. There are some people on here, including myself, that disable unused services, one of the popular ones is sudo systemctl disable NetworkManager-wait-online.service . If you don't use a modem th...

Re: New Systemd Privilege Escalation Flaws Affect Most Linux Distributions

Security researchers have discovered three vulnerabilities in Systemd, a popular init system and service manager for most Linux operating systems, that could allow unprivileged local attackers or malicious programs to gain root access on the targeted systems. https://thehackernews.com/2019/01/linux...

Re: Xed issues.

Once xed is running as root (with the red bar) you can file-open to load your file.
Another way and the one I use is right-clicking the file from within nemo and selecting open as root.

Re: Xed issues.

Sound like you have to run xed as root and that you're using Min 18.3 so try:

Code: Select all

gksudo xed
and enter your password when requested.

NOTE: xed admin:///path/to/file is only needed on Mint 19 or newer.

First thing is to check if you have openssh-server installed, I don't think it's installed by default.

Re: how to connect to a tv with a hdmi

Did you try mirroring the displays? I just tried it with my wife's laptop, it originally extended the display so I opened up Menu - Preferences - Display (cinnamon) clicked 'Mirros display'. Note the Note: may limit resolution options.

I expect that you need to add a second subnet (or ip range) to your network.

If you're using cinnamon you can 'Make bootable USB stick' by right-clicking on the .iso from within nemo.

Re: [SOLVED] Requesting package from Bionic & Cosmic PPA be added to Xenial repo

Thanks phd21 for your excellent (as per usual) instructions for getting setup and compiling BirdTray. I just did a fresh mint 19.1 install on my wife's laptop and decided I'd try BirdTray instead of FireTray (like I had on my desktop). I was so impressed by the animated systray icon on my wife's lap...

Re: Really slow wireless after upgrade on LM 18, new installation of LM 19.1 didnt fix the problem

Hi patran,

It looks like you have power management turned which can cause issues. From the last post of JeremyB in this post:

To disable power management

Code: Select all

sudo sed -i 's/3/2/' /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/*
Reboot

Re: email client Thunderbird alternatives?

I've been using TB for 15 years now and I finally ditched it because with latest version which came with Mint 19, minimize to tray addon was broken, and no other addons with this functionality exists. It's really shame for TB devs that they never implemented that feature into TB, but left it to 3rd...

Re: VPN Unlimited repository error.

Hi MattP490,
Looks like you've added the keepsolid repo multiple times.
One way to sort this out is to run 'Software Sources' (from the menu), click 'Additional repositories' and un-check or remove all the repo's with 'keepsolid' in the name. Then run update manager, refresh and try again.
