Re: Replacement RSS Reader for RSSOwl?

Well, Liferea does apparently have something called Search Folders, so maybe that's the choice - on the other hand, it doesn't really matter, as my RSSOwl db finally got too corrupted to start up. Now I'm wishing I'd done this awhile back and turned off the updating on RSSOwl, so maybe I could've go...

Re: Replacement RSS Reader for RSSOwl?

I tried both Akregator and QuiteRSS - neither had the saved search capability. From what I can see (without actually trying it) it doesn't appear that Liferea does either. But I'm about to test it, so we'll see. I was just wondering if anyone knew off the top of their head what they thought I should...

Replacement RSS Reader for RSSOwl?

So I'm running Mint 18.1 Mate 64-bit (haven't gotten around to upgrading to 18.2 yet). I've been using RSSOwl for years - on Windows and then on Mint when I switched five years ago. I still love using it, but mine's buggy as all get-out (randomly crashing a lot now when it didn't use to), and I'd li...

I get four boxes with 00 in them, and underneath them is S/PDIF, S/PDIF 1, S/PDIF 2, and S/PDIF 3. Nothing else. The other card has Master, Headphone, Speaker, etc.

HDMI audio not working

On the problem computer I'm running Mint 13 Mate 64-bit (I know it's outdated, but I have to use it on this one computer for specific reasons, it's a long story - rest assured I'm completely up-to-date on my main box). This computer's normal monitor and audio connection is done through a KVM switch ...

Re: Issues with Firefox downloading and sessions

Is it safe to assume you can still start Firefox with your affected profile? Does it still have your bookmarks there and can you still view your installed extensions? If so, then just backup the bookmarks and copy the list of extensions. To do this: ⋅ Click on the "Show your bookmark...

Issues with Firefox downloading and sessions

I'm running Mint 18.1 Mate 64-bit, and my Firefox is having major fits recently. I'm currently running Firefox version 53.0.3 - had been holding off on upgrading to 54 because I wanted to double-check if my extensions were still compatible (I know they're phasing out the way extensions work so a lot...

Re: Xorg using 100% of one CPU

And I wondered why it was slow tonight? Presto, now it's back to the same 100% of CPU being sucked up by that Xorg process. That was only a week! I am getting very annoyed that this system is forcing me to restart (or at the very close, close all the programs, kill the process, and restart them) on ...

Re: Xorg using 100% of one CPU

It's been updated since I installed it less than a week ago, but I'll reboot and see if that helps. Edit: Less than 10 minutes after rebooting, the CPU on that process (I ran htop again to watch it) is already flickering from 8-11%. All I did was open Firefox. But it doesn't seem to be growing beyon...

Re: Thunderbird - how to restore partial backup of e-mails?

It turned out that my e-mails did manage to get backed up in the last backup I'd been running when it crashed, so I'm excited about that. Unfortunately, now I have this problem , lol. So I haven't thought to go through and post a reply as I've been too busy. :/ It does look like a useful tool! Thank...

Xorg using 100% of one CPU

My new install of Mint 18.1 Mate 64-bit (on a new hdd but in an tower I'd previously used) was going beautifully, until I found the system this morning absolutely unusable, it was so slow and sluggish. It takes seconds for it to respond to a mouse click, but if I move the mouse around the screen it ...

Konversation taskbar icon & behavior issues

I recently upgraded (via a failing hard drive and a fresh install combined with backups) to Mint 18.1 and found one bug that I can't find mentioned anywhere. I run Mate 64-bit, but I like Konversation best for my IRC client. In Mint 13, the icons always displayed correctly in both system tray and ta...

Thunderbird - how to restore partial backup of e-mails?

I do a full backup of my computer on a regular basis (though not nearly often enough, I suspect). Last week as I was performing a backup, my hard drive began to fail, and the OS crashed entirely. I now have a new hdd in the machine, with a fresh install of Mint 18.1 MATE 64-bit. I pulled my old home...

Re: Recover files from failing drive

No, the External was the second drive I was concerned about, because it wouldn't copy from at all without the -a parameter. But when I added that it seemed to work - having the mouse issue has made it hard for me to browse and check, though. I just got home and have to eat and go get some groceries ...

Re: Recover files from failing drive

Pulling that tower out for access is a huge task and better saved for last unless it's a good guarantee that that's the issues. It's buried under a table against the wall with a desk up in front of the table (necessitating moving both!) and is so big that it's hard for me to lift (I've got a small b...

Re: Recover files from failing drive

Ah, the -a did the trick. But sadly I get a bunch of Input/Output erors and "failed to extend" and "error reading". Does that mean they're uncopy-able? :( (I tried the same command for one of the folders on the External drive and that DID work, yay. So I'm not so worried there.) ...
