Re: Backlight Issue, Mint 19.2 Tina, Cinnamon 64. Lenovo radeon video

Hi, I just installed 19.2 cinnamon on an Lenovo Thinkpad E495 with an Ryzen 3 3500U. I had the same issues as you, that some function keys especially the brightness keys did not work. Upgrading to the new 5.2 kernel series solved it. I am running currently Kernel 5.2.7 without (so far :wink: ) issue...

firefox ignores system wide proxy

Hi all!
I want configure firefox to use the system wide proxy setting in /etc/enviroment but it seems to ignore it completely!
However if I configure firefox itself to use the same proxy then it works!?!?
Any help is appreciated!
Markus

p.s. I am using Mint 12 (GNOME) and Firefox 8.0

Hi!
Thanks for your post, it solved my problem! I had exactly the same problem as you - only I thought it had to do with my SSD and partitioning.

Re: Mint 12 RC install fails on Thinkpad T420s

Hi,
I created the following partitions:

100MB ext4 /boot
~50GB ext4 /
~50GB ext4 /home

No swap, because I thought that with 4GB of RAM I would not need it. Was that a mistake?
