Put a Mac to sleep...

I have an older iMac which was running slowly. So I wiped OSX and installed Mint and Ubuntu. The machine will be a lightly used backup machine. Both linuxes seem to run well enough. If possible, I would like to use "sleep" when it is not in use. It does sleep under both Mint and Ubuntu, but on re-aw...

Re: Fix grub-pc to be grub-efi

After checking the bridge out from all angles, I finally walked across. Worked w/o problem. Now all linux and win-10 OS show up in grub and grub-efi is working properly. Will mark as solved! I want to thank every poster here...pretty impressive to get knowledgeable and useful inputs like this. Speci...

Re: Fix grub-pc to be grub-efi

Thx both. I read the tutorial. My situation is sort of different (Win-10 in UEFI & linuxes in legacy) but it seems to be the correct process. I understand and have used chroot before. The refind method from windows probably is easier, but it does not get where I want to go -- that is all OSs booting...

Re: Fix grub-pc to be grub-efi

Wow, thank you! After what I've been reading, this sounds almost too easy. I understand what you are saying, but I want to be sure that I'm clear on the details. Using gparted, my efi-partition is on /dev/sda2, so my /etc/fstab line should be something like this: # /boot/efi was on /dev/sda2 during ...

Re: Fix grub-pc to be grub-efi

thx for the feed-back; I'll research the issue you mention. Has anyone successfully used the boot-repair process to change mint/ubuntu from legacy boot to UEFI boot? I'm not interested in changing Win_10 to legacy. It is bootable now via the F11 (boot) key.

Sorry, I added part of this comment to an existing post about boot-repair but it is different enough that I should have started a separate thread. New computer with win-10 installed. In ignorance, Mint, LMDE and Ubuntu were installed in legacy mode. After some hassle, I ended with a grub menu that c...

@ phd21 & MintBean since both of you have dnla servers running, and I cannot see either of mine show up on rhythmbox or vlc (and another poster also mentioned this); what version of mint & vlc are you running? And/Or, what music player are you using as a dlna client? I think ums uses a web browser a...

Re: Rhythmbox doesn't see minidlna?

Really seems like minidlna should work...at least in eezUPnP and the PS3 which see it's db.

Re: Rhythmbox doesn't see minidlna?

@ MintBean before I modify and use my IP tables, shouldn't I be able to see minidlna work with the firewall off? Also, I understand possible confusion about the word "server" but I do have a separate box which IS a server and houses my backup server, print server, media servers (mt-daapd and twonky)...

Yes, neither vlc or rhythmbox are working even with all plugins etc. I have gotten twonkyserver 8.41 working on my new server. It sees my PS3 and I can watch videos. After following MintBean's suggestion, minidlna also shows up on the PS3 but does not show the content of folders, ps3 says a "network...

Re: Rhythmbox doesn't see minidlna?

A bit more info. Apparently, there is a known problem in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, and probably also in Mint 18.2 LTS which is based upon it. See this bug report . There is an alternate source to install a tweaked Rhythmbox. Anyone have experience with any of this? Should I try to purge the Mint base instal...

Rhythmbox doesn't see minidlna?

Installed minidnla on my server, and #service minidlna status shows it's running properly. On my desktop running Mint LTS, rhythmbox was configured to see it via this howto but the server does not show up. The minidlna logs show no fatal errors. They say I should increase the "max_watches" [2017/09/...
