Re: Help with RO and Wine

The black screen in wine games doesn't mean that the resolution is wrong. It could be a lot of different things and depends of the game, wine version, windows components that game maybe needs and therefore must be installed etc. WineHQ database is the place in which you can find reports if the game ...

Re: qshutdown doesn't do anything after countdown is over - any alternatives?

Yad is a tool to display graphical windows and menus in bash scripts, isn't supposed to running directly but from inside scripts. So it's normal that you cannot find it in applications menu and also normal to get a window with OK/Cancel buttons only if you run it from terminal. You need to run the s...

Re: Is there a way to connect two PCs using USB ports? (Solved)

This should work on windows too. There you need to find the drivers for the smartphone to be recognised(if isn't happen automatic) and then it will work the same way. This is a standard future on smartphones. Here is a guide I found about this after a quick search: http://www.stevesandroidguide.com/...

Re: Is there a way to connect two PCs using USB ports? (Solved)

Since you talk about smartphone and android os, you just need to install mtp-tools(maybe installed already) and to connect the phone with usb cable. Then on the phone you choose mtp file transfer and then the phone's storage will be available in the file manager to copy/delete/rename etc files and f...

Hmm, no luck here, I've only been a Linux user for a half year and I still have trouble from time to time. When I try to open yad, there's only an empty dialog box with "Cancel" and "OK", console says "Gtk-Message: GtkDialog mapped without a transient parent. This is discouraged." And I couldn't op...

Re: qshutdown doesn't do anything after countdown is over - any alternatives?

Yes, you must change the "systemctl poweroff" with "systemctl suspend", or "systemctl hybrid-sleep". You can also try the python application I mentioned above, which have the option to choose. Extract the zip file where you want and then open a terminal inside this directory and run it with: python3...

Hi everyone, I'm using Mint KDE and I'm searching for a super simple timer/scheduler (like SwitchOff for Windows, that was perfect) to hibernate my laptop every night because I have a habit of falling asleep while using it and there's no point in leaving it switched on all night.

I have already install 5.1, after I read about ukuu(an application for installing-update ubuntu kernels), and works fine on my machine so far. I don't believe that can harm to install the latest kernels if you have also the latest officially supported installed. It's very easy to boot to it from gru...

Re: my 2 problems with mint

I don't know about the beeps, but as for the display, I think that this happens because you have 2 monitors(1 the laptop's broken lcd and the other the external). Seems that the broken screen used as default by the system. So you need a way to change this. I think that if you move the mouse pointer ...
