Re: Upgrade Mint 18.3 to 19 / Samba AD DC Issues / Timeshift

Its certainly worth a shot to uninstall / purge samba and give the upgrade a try. I would backup your smb.conf file first so you can use it later. Also, I would make sure samba is set to not run on boot up, Then uninstall it just to make sure. Ill be interested in how it works as I will have to do t...

It also keeps a log of everything thats backed up including the time it starts, The time it ends and any other info from rsync. Im working on having it send m...

Re: How can I record audio from mic and listen to it at the same time? (arecord + aplay)

Use Audacity to record it.

The basics of it are:
1. Fire up Audacity
2. Select your input for Audacity to record.
* Test this by using your microphone and selecting the different inputs to find the one that works.
3. When done with recording you can just save it as a wav or mp3.

Hope this helps.

Re: Canon-HP-Brother-?? Which one??

I have a Brother MFC-9125CN printer. Its a color toner printer. I always buy printers with wired network connections in them. I never buy inkjet printers. I know the initial outlay of money is high but it depends on your needs and situation. 1. I get 10 times the page prints an inkjet does per cartr...

Re: No video from camera...

Great to hear. Im still sitting on 18.3 and dreading moving up to 19 as I have so much installed and running. I use my main box for work and have nginx with invoice ninja installed and lots of other stuff. So, It will be quite a bit of work. I guess I will procrastinate for as long as I can :)

Re: How to Fix Brother Printer?

On the Brother download page you should use the installer app instead of the individual deb files. I would make sure no printer is configured on system and start with the installer app. I run a MFC-9125CN via its built in network card but you can do USB. I frown on Wireless as there are too many pro...

Re: No video from camera...

Hello Gary, I think the jump from 18 to 19 broke mesa. I also think that trying to re install mesa will probably remove a lot of other software and lead you down a rabbit hole. It would be quicker and best to backup your home directory and wipe / install the latest Mint. Then restore your personal f...

OpenGL: renderer: N/A v: N/A direct render: N/A

Yep. Thats the problem in a nutshell. Now we have validated the issue we have to come up with a fix.

Why is there no Renderer? Hummm.... Time to start searching around.

Re: Can't compile from source - /usr/bin/ld: cannot find Scrt1.o: No such file or directory

When you do get this compiled, What exactly are you going to do with it?
This can be used for practical jokes(?) such as interfering with a co-worker’s radio or for malign purposes such as cheating GPS receivers used to track valuable merchandise or get ships lured off-course.

Re: Dell laptop gets extremely slow when it starts using disk swapfile

I fired up my VM of Mint 19.1 and it indeed shows a swap file instead of the whole partition. Perhaps this has something to do with the availibility of an extra partition to put a swap partition. If not you get a swap file? However, My VM runs good with a swap file. I guess we can rule that out. Ca...
