Re: Issue with sound output mapping and settings after 18.3 upgrade

I doubt that it has anything to do with Linux Mint 18.3. Perhaps the newly released kernel 4.10.0-42 will bring a fix.

Re: Completely remove/reinstall Nvidia drivers

That was bad luck with the nvidia cards :( and I wonder what the cause might be. The Driver Manager should be sufficient to remove or install any drivers. You can also check in Synaptic to see which nvidia driver is installed and which nvidia drivers are available. To remove nvidia drivers completel...

Re: "Please switch to another Linux Mint mirror. Your APT cache is corrupted"

When upgrading from 18.2 to 18.3 the mirrors are reset to the Linux Mint repositories. Reset them to your choice of mirrors before doing any updates. If you get a corrupt cache message, open Software Sources in the Update Manager screen, click on Maintenance and select Fix MergeList Problems, then U...

Re: Issue with sound output mapping and settings after 18.3 upgrade

Have you looked in AlsaMixer? Open a terminal and type alsamixer followed by pressing Enter. You can verify in alsamixer which sound card is in use by pressing F6.

Have you tried the inbuilt sound chip?

Re: Virtual box not seeing USB drive

"Users and Groups" is an entry under "Administration" in your main menu.
When you open it, you will see 2 headings: Users (which will show your name) and Groups. Click on Groups, scroll to "vboxusers", click on vboxusers and then click on "Add".

Re: Issue with sound output mapping and settings after 18.3 upgrade

In the Output section of Sound Device Settings instead of "Analogue Stereo Input" it should read "Analogue Stereo Output". That is what it says on my system. What I would do is to switch the audio input/output lines from your sound card to your motherboard inbuilt sound sockets a...

Re: CrossOver on Chrome OS,

On the other hand ... Developments in CrossOver are shared with WINE, so a contribution to CrossOver helps development of WINE. At a current cost of $60 (USD) they are not asking for an arm and a leg. Many years ago I paid for a version of CrossOver, then $40, it ran the few programmes written for W...

Re: How to speed up automated suspend in linuxmint 18.1 ?

In Linuxmint 18.2 Sonya I can only choose for an automated suspend in 10 minutes. That is not true. You can select 5 minutes. I am still puzzled by your claimed installation of Dconf, Dconfig, Gconf and Gconfig. MuteAnt has already indicated to you how to install dconf-editor and also clearly state...

Re: Epson XP-510 Wireless

The first thing to do is to connect the machine to power and use a USB cable to connect to your computer. Reboot. Next, open System Settings in your main menu, scroll down to Hardware and then Printers to see if your printer is recognised. Otherwise, go to the Epson Download Centre http://download.e...

Re: How to speed up automated suspend in linuxmint 18.1 ?

To confirm, the timer setting in dconf-editor is in seconds and it works. Tested with 15 which was too brief (for me) and tested with 60 so that suspend will activate after 1 minute of inactivity. Be aware that these shortened suspend settings do not accommodate reading long articles online. Thanks ...

Re: Virtual box not seeing USB drive

You will have to install the corresponding Extension Pack for the version of VirtualBox you have installed and also check in Users and Groups that your name and admin status is ticked.
After that USB devices will show in VirtualBox.
