Re: {Solved} MDM Cinnamon won't load after updates LM13

Fixed my own problem.

It had something to do witht he Infinality font rendering that I was recently trying out. After I removed it and purged the PPA it all started working fine again.

Re: AnnoyingTitle-Bar action in Cinnamon

You need to disable snapping in the Cinnamon settings that is what is causing this. It's a feature from Windows 7.

Re: Steam on Linux- team fortress 2 black screen openGL

Yep, works great via GnomeClassic/XFCE desktop environments, not on Cinnamon (except if you play games in windowed mode). Steam-login didn't help either, after login I got a black screen (probably similar to the one you get when trying to play TF2 or Trine2 on a Cinnamon Desktop. Shouldn't as the S...

Re: Suspend my laptop disables the HDMI output

The difference is System76 supplies System76 drivers that fix issues like that under Ubuntu, there is nothing different about the kernels. There is a way to get the System76 drivers to work on Linux Mint, I saw them on a forum somewhere once.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:stebbins/handbrake-snapshots

Using that repository instead of the snapshots repo will give you stable releases instead of the nightlies :)

Re: Help needed with the black art that is Video encoding!

ffmpeg -i input.ts -vcodec copy -sameq -acodec copy -f matroska output.mkv

that should work for you. That will get you an .mkv file that could be transcoded or you could make it avi or whatever you need. Read the ffmpeg man page it is an incredibly powerful program.

Re: Help needed with the black art that is Video encoding!

.ts is probably pushing MPEG2 .ts is just the wrapper for the stream. You lost the seek ability when you took away the .ts after the second record since the seek info is carried in the .ts wrapper. You need to transmux or demux it before you transcode it. ffmpeg will do this.
