Re: Mint 19 - No information (logs) during boot

It happened again today. Forgot battery cable was unplugged. Laptop shut down. No more boot. Steps to make bootable to GUI again: Boot using Live USB Set display resolution to half (Live USB fails to detect High DPI screen) Open Terminal sudo mount /dev/nvme0n1p5 /mnt sudo mv /mnt/etc/resolv.conf{,_...

Mint 19 - No information (logs) during boot

This release, while booting very fast when it works, seems to be very sensitive to things that break the boot process. I have had to restore a timeshift recovery point a dozen or so times already. And it's important to point out that this happens for the silliest of things, like my laptop running ou...

Re: LM 19 Tara boots 30 seconds slower than LM 18

It was a misconfigured resume partition! (Important: This happened on a fresh install, so something is probably broken on the installer.) When I removed the UUID from /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume so that the file reads RESUME=none and updated initramfs by running: sudo update-initramfs -u , th...

LM 19 Tara boots 30 seconds slower than LM 18

Did a clean install on my Lenovo X1 Yoga laptop. Full disclosure: It's dual-boot with Windows 10. I notice the boot is a lot slower, so I checked syslog : kernel: [ 0.000000] microcode: microcode updated early to revision 0x84, date = 2018-01-21 kernel: [ 0.000000] Linux version 4.15.0-23-generic (b...

What do you mean "working again"?

The touchpad and the touch screen have always worked. The touch screen is still not working as expected in Firefox. It works fine in Chrome.

Firefox 57.0.1 update broke touch screen

For the first time in my live, I started to actually use Firefox. With 57.0 the speed appealed to me. I did have to run the famous env MOZ_USE_XINPUT2=1 firefox %u in order to enable touch support, but it worked fine. Now, not 5 days later, with Firefox 57.0.1, that's no longer working. I don't know...

CASE CLOSED :D
I would really really like to know what file changes when you flip `HiDPI` support from `Auto` to `Enable`, so I can automate this.

Any clue?

This place. :mrgreen: self.Symphaties.Clear(); In Mint 17 I had issues with my video card when attaching two monitors. Should I roll back to Linux Mint 13 (LTS) in stead of upgrading to 18? Of course not. As a developer it's always a battle between having up-to-date packages, and wanting LTS so you ...

It's a gift from God

I have 2 computers and 3 bluetooth headsets. My life was good in the 18 months that I used Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon. That is until I migrated to Linux Mint 18. In the past few months I have experienced that - for some reason that probably nobody can explain - I can't seem to pair my headsets, or I onl...

Re: Screen freezes randomly after upgrade to 17.3

I can't find this specific problem, so I've created a bug on Github.

If this affects you too, please post your specs there:

Screen freezes randomly after upgrade to 17.3

I upgraded Linux Mint Cinnamon 17.2 to 17.3 the other day in the hopes of fixing the bug where network shares (which I use a lot) don't remember the passwords anymore, even if I tick the box. I also upgraded the kernel to the recommended version. However, now my Lenovo X1 Carbon (2013) laptop screen...

Cinnamon, and I don't know if I have blueman installed.

I know that on every other computer with Mint Cinnamon, everything works out of the box, so at least I have blue-something installed. :mrgreen:

Bluetooth headsets not showing up in audio devices

I have the TTF equalizer for PulseAudio installed, because I think it's retarded that there is no built-in way to equalize your audio. In Windows there were always equalizers with the audio drivers, and during my brief OSX period there were also (easy to install (!)) apps for that. So unfortunately ...

Re: Dropbox, applet/ indicator not appearing

~/.config/autostart/dropbox.desktop

Clever. Although sometimes when I suspend and resume, the icon is gone again. But upon investigation, it's because the dropbox service is stopped. How does this happen?

Re: How to load a dark GTK theme in Linux Mint Cinnamon

You seem to know your dark themes. :D What is you favorite? I tried a lot. But they are not as polished as the light themes, because they all have some elements that I don't consider A-quality. For example, I like "Vertex Theme" overall, but the black window titles and the uncontrasty difference in ...
