Re: Pendrives overmounting

Today the problem is solved and it's hard to establish a reason. The relevant event was an update applied on the old lubuntu 16.04 distro I have on sda2 (/) and sda6 (/home) partitions. Before there was a weird misalignment between grub choices at boot and effective O.S. installed on sda5: I upgrade...

Re: Lightweight distros for old computers

Maya has been a big distro for my old Latitude D600 and I appreciated it so much.
I did the transition to Lubuntu 14.04 LTS ast month because I had more problems on my laptop with LM 18.1.
In every case Lubuntu 14.04 is not so responsive like Maya.

Re: Firefox v46: scrollbar problems

For the scrollbar, this works for me in Cinnamon: Add in file ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini (create if it does not exist): [Settings] gtk-primary-button-warps-slider=false As for MATE, I am not sure. Does it still use the gtk-2 settings infrastructure? In this case, the file would most probably be...

It's true only with Serena. If I use VLC in Maya it's fluid.
After a fresh re-installation of Serena 18.1 VLC works well :) .

Re: Standard Video Player failure

Thanks a lot Rob! I followed the guide and it works. Now disk is calm. Compositing unchecked and Compiz uninstalled without any problem or visible issues. Never mind the "Direct Rendering: Yes" bit ... I wasn't able to find this option. May anyone show where is it? The player is Xplayer 1.2.2. It st...

Re: Standard Video Player failure

Rob, I just followed your procedure but nothing changed: VLC OK, Standard Player KO. Any ideas? I'm glad to use Synaptic. ... So that's not a hard install. I use Synaptic Package Manager. Open that and hit the Reload button on the left to update your software sources list. You should always do that ...

Standard Video Player failure

Rob, I tried to re-install Serena 18.1 and VLC and it worked! :D , now I can see video in a fluid way. Probably something went wrong in previous installation i did. The issue is only on the standard player: before and now it crashes few second after it starts to read any video. It reads the duration...

Standard Video Player failure

Hi, I installed successfully Serena 18.1 on my old Latitude D600 but there is a serious issue: gnome video player (and VLC too) reproduces videos in a not fluid way. if I could downgrade gnome player package to 3.1.0 version, the same used in Maya, I probably solve this problem, isn't it? Is it a wa...

Re: Mint 18 32bit forcePAE video players open/close

Babyblues,
video player works if you boot Serena in maintenance mode.
VP is more fluid than VLC but it's fluid sufficiently only if its window is small.
Probably Mate is now too much heavy for an old D600.
Incidentally also suspend/resume function is ok.

Multiboot Windows XP defrag

I have a grub multiboot installation, one boot is for XP and others for lubuntu and mint 13 maya.
Is it possible to defrag the NTFS partition with Windows XP inside in live mode (defrag with XP on is disappointing)?
Thanks

Re: Recover partition data

At the end i was able to fill the ntfs partition. I had to stop the creation of the delme file too slow to finish in a decent time and start the creation of a second file delme2. The second file behaves like the first one but the initial byte rate is a lot higher than the final byte rate of the firs...

Re: Recover partition data

Laurent, gparted doesn't give errors but I would know why dd if=/dev/zero of=delme bs=8M command creates the delme file fastly at beginning and after the byte rate decreases progressively in a way that after many hours the command is still operating. This only occurs in the ntfs partition and not in...

Laurent, don't you think it's strange that
"The driver descriptor says the physical block size is 512 bytes, but Linux says it is 2048 bytes"
