timeshift with recovery boot

Hello and thank you, Just an aside, I have booted Tara 3 times today, the 20th, and tried timeshift each time, but there are no logs in /var/logs for this date. Why might that be? My problem is trying to recover a timeshift snapshot from recovery mode boot in Tara. I get a lot of read-only errors wh...

Re: No sound in new Tara

Great result! That works! I can get the same great sound I get from the rear connector in Windows. There is an audio switch on the motherboard for directing the premium headphone sound to front or rear. I seems to work in reverse, giving the better sound when the switch points to the 6.3mm jack in t...

Re: No sound in new Tara

Reboot after hard power down makes no difference. The sound works great in Windows. I notice that Volume Control always shows "Headphones (plugged in) as the port of the output device no matter which of the six physical ports I plug my headphones into. Windows always asks what I've plugged in, if I ...

Re: No sound in new Tara

I wonder if it possible to take out the Pulse Audio and might I get sound from the Alsa system alone? Would it help to write a bug report? Never mind. I didn't see your post at first. The second suggestion is interesting because sometimes I have to hard shutdown before switching to Windows to get th...

I see it in pacmd output, but it is not selected in Volume Control Output Devices. Headphones is selected. What does this mean?

Re: No sound in new Tara

Line out was selected by default when I first ran pavucontrol but I changed it to Headphones. Why do you say this?

Re: No sound in new Tara

MrEen, you asked me to delete the files in ~/.config/pulse and issue pulseaudio -k in the terminal, after I made the first post. Didn't this reset pulseaudio to defaults then that made the HDMI that I had set OFF appear and start flickering? Also the default port in Output Devices Built-in Audio is ...

Re: No sound in new Tara

Yes, well, I had disabled the Nvidia card sound because I like the onboard sound more. Then I reset the Pulse Audio. I prefer using the headphones. Thanks.

Re: No sound. Pavucontrol shows disconnected outputs

I havn't been able to follow up for a while, but yesterday I tried to update the kernel. I had 4.4 and tried the latest 4.10. It seemed to go well until the very end. When it tried to update grub, it reported it could not find one of my drives. I ran the update grub selection in the recovery options...

Re: No sound. Pavucontrol shows disconnected outputs

Thanks for the help. No, did not install Firejail. Understood your concern about the output, but the Reply answer box eats the indentations. I did try quotes but it did not work so I extra spaced the sections because I did not understand how to fix that. Here's the inxi output: antbat@MS-788 ~ $ inx...

Thanks, A new Mint 13 /MATE install and I tried to add applet DocBarX to the panel. There was an error and I didn't delete it then, but did later. Meanwhile I customized the windows subject bar to roll up, and installed the proprietary drivers for GTX470. After rebooting for the drivers, there was n...
