Re: Folding@home-Team Linux Mint-76140

Hi tinca,

I haven't seen this problem before, usually the GPU isn't recognized at the start. I don't see Nvidia 430.26 available on my 19.2, only 430.50 (I'm using it now) and 435.21(haven't tried yet) as the latest drivers.

Did you add the drivers ppa?

Re: How to set Digital Virbrance or Saturation in Mint 19.1

Since you mention Windows Geforce Experience I'll assume you have an nvidia card.

Do you have the proprietary nvidia drivers installed? Please post the terminal output of inxi -Gx

Re: Looking for Mini Desktop for Mint or Mintbox

I bought a mintbox mini 2 pro direct from fit-iot.com. Add $50 USD shipping and any VAT (or Duties/taxes) (For me in Canada it was $81 CAD) so it adds up! Ships from Israel so shipping might be cheaper for you.

Re: Dell XPS 13 9380 battery drain

What kernel is your friend running? Probably something newer than the 4.15 series. You might want to try upgrading your kernel to the newest of the 5.0 series.

I think you're going to have to log into your google account and relax the security for third party email clients. I'll see if I can find out what I did when I get home later on today.

Re: VPN Issue: Can't Flush iptables - Permission Denied (you must be root)

If you aren't using the beta version 2.17.2, you might want to try that, I've been using it for months without issue, in fact I have an Additional Repository setup for eddie testing. See here for more info. Otherwise you could try calling your script from within eddie since eddie is run with root pr...

Hi Caleb05, If I understand you correctly, you can connect to you ssh server from outside your local network without using a password (so you have ssh keys setup). But you want to be able to do it without using the ip addresss your isp provided you or your username. If I'm correct in my guess then a...

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 ...

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?
