Re: Duel booting windows 10 and linux mint 19.1 cant access drive on windows

I just installed linux mint last night and partitioned it on my 4 tb hdd and now I can't access it at all on windows 10. That's normal: windows can't understand any non-MS filesystem types, like ext4 (the one you get by default), btfs, etc. There are a couple of 3rd-party windows programs that migh...

In Xfce is there a quick way to highlight the position of the mouse cursor when I press the control key? Something like what they discuss for Ubuntu here .
Did you try the stuff on that page? If it works in Ubuntu, it should work in Mint.

The problem was solved, thank you Flemur.
Thanks for adding SOLVED and also for adding info which others might find useful.

Note about ~/.profile

~ = $HOME = /home/username

Try typing

Code: Select all

echo ~
And you could

Code: Select all

xed ~/.profile 
You'd normally NOT change any /etc/skel files.

i'm truly at a lost. it's like one second it was working just fine and then it wasn't.
I would look at (=reinstall or reconfigure) polkit (@smurphos) and pkexec, which is broken on my system, and might be the reason my errors act like your errors.

Re: Worse system performance on Linux than on Windows

Intel has a specific driver optimized for my Celeron processor on Windows, while, as far as I know, Linux uses Mesa for all Intel things; It's probably your video driver. I had a similar experience with an old Sony Vaio [sic?] desktop which ran better on XP than on linux. My 10-year-old eMachines, ...

Re: How do you convert to mp3

How do you convert a store bought cd to mp3 format ? 1 - "copy" the files from the CD (so far just copying has always given exactly the same file as a ripper, but use a ripper if your CD is in bad shape). 2 - Edit the .wav file with audition * so volume and intro/outro are the way I want them. 3 - ...

Re: Colour differences between Image Viewer & Gimp before and after export

It sounds like a color profile in the file, which can either be ignored, or applied to change the rgb values before they're sent to the screen. Try gimp -> Image -> Color management -> enable/disable You also might want to get the pictures transferred as .psd (photoshop) rather than .jpg, it's proba...

You can disable all those services without breaking anything - but you should run the functions occasionally anyway.

Re: Copying to USB

Yes, I unmounted the device properly and also the device had enough storage to write the data to it. Could you possibly have one of those "fake" USBs from ebay (advertised as "64GB" but it's only 4 or 8 GB).?

After rebooting, both 2 files were brought back though.
That is "puzzling evidence", there must be something else referring to them and re-creating them, but I'm clueless, maybe someone who knows more will have ideas.
