Re: How Can I Access USB Drive Attached To Router ??

Well figured out how to locate and mount the network shared drive by using ctrl+L in the file manager. Not a permanent mount but able to access the share drive ... until next reboot anyway. As for the pascalopitz/unofficial-sonos-controller-for-linux ... I downloaded and installed a previous version...

Feature I'd Like To See In Mint (Only thing I miss from Windows)

The only thing I miss from Windows is the ability to cast image AND sound to a smart TV (ROKU TV in my case) ... with just one click !!! I think Windows uses Miracast to accomplish this feature. I've seen threads explaining how some have installed Miracast in Linux but it involves compiling code and...

Re: Screen Tearing...

Others with more experience than myself have chimed in, so I will just relate my personal and limited experience. Years ago I had a screen tearing issue while using Intel graphics. I think that's what you're using (?) Anyway, I found a thread from 2016 with a solution from @Portreve that worked for ...

Re: Double volume icons in Mate 20.1?

OOPS ... Mint default panel just works and is fine for me. Click-Click and done.
The OP, somelurker, may have a default panel too ya know. Maybe you're a special case. ;)
... but your experience is well worth mentioning and I wasn't aware my easy solution might negatively affect some.

Re: Double volume icons in Mate 20.1?

Happens from time to time. Usually seems to be associated with some tweak I made or a system update of some sort. Only happens after a system restart. I hardly ever power down, so might happen occasionally on power up ... dunno. Seems to have been happening now and then for a couple of mint distro r...

Re: Why can't I disable System Reports?

Nope, once removed from Startup Applications and restart, System Reports does not appear in the system tray. I don't see it in System Monitor > (All) Processes either ... at least not listed as "System Reports" or by the command "mintreport-tray" anyway. Guess it's just an anomal...
