Installation of LM 20, 19.3, ...

I have been unable to install LM 20 on an EightVirtues laptop and the company has not responded to email contact (even though I am only 1.5 years in a 4-year warranty). The problems are multiple and unfortunately very diffuse: - sometimes the system boots up (but only after a long time and then some...

Re: Time in calendar applet in panel loops

Update: I haven't done anything to the laptop but now the date/time applet is looping through 10:04 although hwclock is still showing the correct time. It seems as if the hour is always that of the correct time, but the minute is 'frozen' ...

Re: SD card doesn't mount on one computer anymore

And I forgot to mention, the laptop1 also doesn't recognize other SD cards anymore so it COULD be a hardware problem, but since this all only started after the disk process wasn't concluded, I doubt that and bet it's a software thing.

Re: Sound in Mint 19 Cinnamon

I tried the three terminal lines but it didn't work and no, there's no parallel boot possibility with Windows (I only trust Win enough for a virtual box) ;-) The system in question is a Dell XPS 8300 desktop. For now I'll try to reinstall the OS again, maybe that'll help, but I appreciate all your e...

Re: Sound in Mint 19 Cinnamon

I've tried that now as well as some other combinations of settings, but to no avail - in fact, now I don't even get the startup sound anymore when I reboot :-D

Hi all I just installed Mint 19 Cinnamon on my laptop and my desktop. On the desktop, I have a sound problem: when I boot, I get the Cinnamon startup sound, but then no other sound works: no test sounds, nothing from the browser, etc. In the sound settings app on the Output tab, it recognizes a devi...

Icons on Cinnamon Desktop (Mint 18.3)

For instance, my browser download folder ins the desktop and whenever I download a file, the icon for it is put on top of another icon on the very left of my desktop - why? My desktop settings are "align t...

Read-only USB

Hi all On Mint 18.2 64bit, I am running into a problem again that apparently has been discussed for a long time but nothing I find only works for me: formatting a USB-stick with FAT 32 and then not being able to write onto it because "the destination is read-only" - is there a real fix for that? I h...
