Re: Nemo jumps out of rename dialog after one character

After installing the previous image, I upgraded the items that came due. First linux 5.4.0-42-generic. No issues after reboot. Then cinnamon-nemo 4.6.5. No issues after restarting cinnamon. Then about 6 other cinnamon parts, one by one. No issues. Problem has not recurred. Thanks for your input.

Re: Nemo jumps out of rename dialog after one character

Thanks for the suggestions.

I restored a partition image from Aug 1. It has Nemo 4.6.4, and works as expected. I'll see what happens when 4.6.5 comes up for upgrade, and if the problem recurs I'll try these suggestions.

Kazam no sound after upgrade to Mint20 [solved]

After upgrading to Mint20 from 19.3, there was no sound in Kazam video recordings. Other sound applications (e.g., vokoscreenNG) worked OK. Some internet searching suggested the problem was inherited from Ubuntu 20.04. The first answer by Vzbux on this page worked for me https://askubuntu.com/questi...

Re: smbclient shares not working after upgrade to mint20

I've gotten it to work.

First I tried replacing smb.conf with the old one: same errors.

Then I saw what was presumably the maintainers version, smb.conf.ucf-dist. When I copied that into smb.conf my shares worked.

Thanks everyone.

Re: smbclient shares not working after upgrade to mint20

I was given a list of options during the install, and I took the default to keep the previous config. Was that a mistake?

Re: SSD and trim in LMDE4 [Solved]

Does automatic trim have to be set up/activated in a fresh LMDE4 install, and if so, how?

A search of the forum did not come up with anything newer than 2018.

Numerous cinnamon updates today, plus some kernel stuff. After reboot and login, immediate warning that cinnamon has crashed and now in fallback. Retry and reboot give same results. Last update was a week ago -- no issues. Today first had update manager update, then brought up all the cinnamon stuff...

Nemo opens on top of desktop icons in 19.1

I noticed this annoying change in the position in which nemo opens in 19.1, vs. 19 and LMDE3. It now opens right over the left center of the desktop, obscuring a column of icons I have there, and requiring a drag to the right every time. In 19 and LMDE3 it opens more toward the center of the screen....

Re: LM 19.1 how to return icon sizes and spacing in Nemo

I find the icons within nemo too small at 50% and too large at 66%. What's more, the labels are tiny at 50%. The icon size and label size in 19 were just right.

'Turn off screen when inactive' works intermittently

Since I upgraded from Betsy to Cindy, I often find my screen on, well after the 10-minute setting. Other times it shuts down as expected. This is a desktop PC. I set my power options to turn off the screen after 10 minutes, and never suspend. I've tried closing any open programs, but this hasn't hel...

Re: Synaptic -- can't find documentation on this topic

Ah. I'm not seeing these in update manager because I have level 4 disabled. When I enable level 4 I see a metapackage for xorg, which presumably contains these packages I see in synaptic.

Re: Lost desktop functions with Cinnamon Update 3.4.6+betsy

I found a workaround for this issue on the web. in menu - preferences - startup applications, add a custom application called anything (e.g., 'nemo workaround'), with the command nemo-desktop and a 5-second delay. There already was an entry for Files, calling nemo -n, which wasn't working. No amount...
