Nemo. What is the expected behaviour of the umount-button

If one plugs an usb-drive in, then the drive is automatically listed up on the left in Nemo. https://ibb.co/nbZbZgQ If I press this button, in all cases the usb-drive gets unmounted and a notification pops up that the drive can safely removed I notice that in all the cases the power on the usb-drive...

Re: De code voor een dua boot

Beter eerst eens posten als je opstart van de linux-live-usb, hoe de partities er voor het ogenblik uitzien (Gebruik hiervoor Gparted). Als de partitie nog bestaat, dan kan je bij de installatie kiezen voor "iets anders". Je zal dan zelf de partitie moeten kiezen waarin LM geïnstalleerd wo...

Tellico - Doesn't accept keyboard-input [Solved]

Tellico 3.2.3 on LM20. Tellico has been working fine on LM20, but today I noticed that the program is no longer accepting any input from the keyboard (even a keyboard on the screen). The mouse is working ok and all other stuff is working ok as well. Any idea how to solve this problem? After removing...

Re: Error connecting via USB my mobile phone

This problem can be related to an usb-connector (either on your computer either on your cable) that has been worn out. As the usb-connector wears out, the connection can drop out intermittently or by touching the cable or the device.

Re: After upgrade to LM20, printer/scanner hp3639 not usuable [Solved]

I used synaptic-package-manager to remove hpgui completely. The standard cups-software is automatically detecting the printer. The printer works again, a well as the scanner.

After upgrade to LM20, printer/scanner hp3639 not usuable [Solved]

With LM19 the printer/scanner HP3639 was working ok. After updating to LM20, I can't use the printer as the scanner no longer. I tried to reinstall hplib-gui, but the problem remains. Then I downloaded hplip-3.20.6.run from the hp-website, but the program doesn't install due to broken packages. Plea...

Re: dd-command doesn't copy [solved]

Careful; you're still conflating (Audio) CD and CD-ROM. The latter is as to this issue the same as not copy-protected DVD, but Audio CD is not and not "just technically" either. As mentioned in that other thread, Audio CDs are not (good at being) random-access block-devices, the type of d...

Re: dd-command doesn't copy

Thank you for quick response.

Well I didn't realize the difference between a CD and DVD. dd for a DVD works indeed. Probably I never used it on 18.3 to duplicate a cdrom.

Re: Opening an audio-cd fails after eject/insert

As to the main part of the issue it seems clear you're looking at a bona fide bug in GVFS or its deployment in Cinnamon though. Although I haven't been able to reproduce exactly I'm coming close when I in the file manager preferences deselect Behavior -> Media Handling -> "Open a folder for au...

Opening an audio-cd fails after eject/insert

Linux Mint 19.1 Cinnamon. Cd-drive is an usb-drive (lsusb returns MediaTek Inc. Samsung SE-208 Slim Portable DVD Writer, but the device is known as a Transcend TS8XDVDS). (I don't think that the device nor the audio-cds are involved in the issues described underneath) 1. Insert a legal audio-cd. A m...

It looks that installing LinuxMint along Ubuntu is a problem, because both use the same EFI boot directory named ubuntu. The problem and a solution is described here in detail https://www.zdnet.com/article/hands-on- ... m-solving/

Re: Bluetooth works in Win 10 but not in Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon

First check if the hardware of the device still is recognized :

Code: Select all

hciconfig -a
Check whether the device is blocked or not

Code: Select all

rfkill list
Check if there are some specific messages about bluetooth

Code: Select all

dmesg | egrep -i 'blue|firm'
