Re: High GPU temperature + microstuttering (GTX 1080 Ti, Mint 19)

Hi The Bright Side and welcome to the forum. This is the first I've heard of this but I know there have been a lot of different types of issues with the latest kernel 4.15.0-24, what are you using? Please open a terminal and post the output of inxi -Fxz using the code tags (</>). I use a gtx 970 and...

Re: Mint 19 + OpenVPN within Network Manager -> no internet

Hi farrina, Interesting problem which I unfortunately don't know the answer to but I'll give you an un-educated guess in hopes that I don't send you off on a tangent. It looks like systemd has sunk it's tentacles in a little deeper with Mint 19 which now uses systemctl-resolved.service instead of re...

Sounds like you're doing it right, just disconnect, I'm not sure why it's crashing on you, sorry.

Re: Mint 19 Upgrade - Vino gone?

I use x11vnc at work with older systems and with those you have to log in as domain/name:1 (DISPLAY:1) and if you log out of the session instead of killing the connection, you will have to restart the x11vnc-sever on the remote end via ssh. So try just killing the session instead of logging off the ...

Desktop sharing is vino-preferences but it doesn't get installed with vino, I'm not sure what's going on here.

Re: Are there any dangerous/vulnerable packages I should remove?

You might want to check things out before removing them. For instance aptitude why mono-runtime shows that tomboy depends on it and aptitude why openjdk-8-jre shows icedtea. You could end up borking your system.

Re: Running remote desktop application on a non gui machine

ssh into machine two (EDIT: machine one) via nemo with enough privileges for the task, from nemo, file - Connect to server, pick ssh and enter your server address and credentials. Then you can open a remote file via the nemo session in xed (or whatever) as per normal.

Re: Luckybackup super-user not available after install via Software Manager

I use timeshift for my system ('/'), but luckybackup for my /home. That's the default for timeshift anyhow (excludes /home) and it allows easier and faster restores. On my system timeshift is scheduled to backup to an internal drive so I can recover from a borked update quickly while luckbackup is r...

Re: Luckybackup super-user not available after install via Software Manager

I've noticed that too, but as I only use LuckBackup for my /home I don't worry about it. I can guess why super-user version is not included and my guess is that because Mint19 dropped gksu (as did Ubuntu 18.04) from the repos. LuckyBackup hasen't been in active development for a few years now so I d...

Re: How many of you have installed HD set top boxes ?

Mythtv, wow, haven't heard that name in a few years. I used to use Mythtv before Mythbuntu came out (or before I knew it was out), then switched to Mytbuntu using mostly a firewire connection from my cable box. I don't have a need for it now that my cable box is a DVR with On Demand so Myth went the...

Re: PIA or AirVPN? Which is Better?

Hi SueS, I use both PIA and AirVPN, each of these providers has a forum so I would suggest you scan them over. As far as which is easier, that's a tough one. as far as there gui's are concerned, I think that for setting up and letting it run without any user intervention, PIA would be the winner, yo...

Re: timeshift and backup tool in LinuxMint 18.3

The default config is to not save the users files, but you can if you want to. From github-teejee Timeshift is similar to applications like rsnapshot, BackInTime and TimeVault but with different goals. It is designed to protect only system files and settings. User files such as documents, pictures a...
