Re: TimeShift can't restore snapshot, stuck on dry run.

Sunday, November 11, 2018 Timeshift is a hog, it sucks up a Lot of disk space! https://preview.ibb.co/fh1cYV/timeshift.png To combat the space problem I created a separate partition for the snapshots. I thought 10 GB would be OK considering the entire system is about 5.5 GB but it got full and I had...

The other issue that I was having seems to have miraculously resolved itself, updates. I had not gotten a single update for over 2 months...suddenly I am receiving updat...

Re: Error msg "FileSystemRoot" low disk space

I do not know if it fixed the problem yet but i did find that Timeshift was consuming all of my HD in a very short time. How can one use this feature and have it be efficient? thanks for the input I created a separate partition for the Timeshift snapshots, then changed my Timeshift settings to use ...

Re: [SOLVED] Thunderbird 60 has no Calendar

@karlchen thanks for clearing that up for the sake of clarity: Debian 9 "Stretch" actually had no problems at all with either Thunderbird or Lightning. Nor did Debian Buster or Debian Sid. The problem appears to be unique to LMDE 3 and the implementation thereof. I don't know how the problem occurre...

For future reference:

Code: Select all

lsblk -f
Easier to read and saves you the sudo.

If you prefer GUI, then Mint menu > Disks also shows the UUID for any partition you click on.
NICE! thanks, I will start using

Code: Select all

lsblk -f
=== however

Code: Select all

lsblk -J

what is that used for?

If you see your bug report closed without comment ... comment of that closed thread and ask Why.
