Re: brightness, contrast,saturation etc...& mpv player

The instructions you gave me had no effect on mpv. They did for me: mpv played a video and I could adjust the contrast, etc. MrEen's instructions...I didn't know about hitting the number keys (!), and re. that post https://askubuntu.com/questions/1053084/mpv-player-keys-dont-work-on-video , FWIW, I...

hi...
thanks but my problem don't concern smplayer but MPV.
smplayer can run mpv and do the adjustments you want - why is that not good enough?

Re: [Solved] Is there a proper way to change Qt fonts in xfce?

I'm not sure, what I exactly did, but removing an old .config/gtk-2.0/ was part of it. Now changing the Appearance -> Style in qt5ct had an effect, which it did not have before. No idea, if some other magic was involved, but it works for me. That sounds about right since the various desktops don't ...

The interesting question is: Do you remember whether it was Grub2 (vs. legacy Grub or even LILO)?
Nope, but now I have the old computer to mess with, so maybe I'll try an experiment: install mint and move the partition containing /boot.

Re: Incremental backup apps?

I use grsync, which is rsync + a GUI, to backup data and OSs, keeping the latest copy of each file; IIRC rsync can save updated copies, but I've never tried it. grsync also provides a very useful preview.

Re: Mystery Password

How to reinstall article says:
"When the installation is complete, remove the Live USB thumb drive or Live CD and reboot. Now it’s time to re-install your applications to your new OS."
Could you login at that point? ...before reinstalling the programs?

UEFI lets you move your boot partition easily!

I just got a computer with UEFI and discovered that you can move your boot partition without any fiddling around because the grub.cfg file in /boot/efi/EFI/ubuntu refers to the boot partition by UUID, (the partition holds the grub.cfg files with the actual kernel information), rather than an offset ...
