Re: Samsung 960 EVO 250G NVMe SSD Benchmark Result

It's normal for benchmarks to be all over the place, for various reasons. Try sudo hdparm -Tt /dev/nvme0n1 and AIDA64 benchmark in windoz too.

Try this: download appropriate .deb package for your distro, in my case it was libgl1-mesa-dri-lts-xenial from here https://www.ubuntuupdates.org/package/core/trusty/main/security/libgl1-mesa-dri-lts-xenial replace with newer versions /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/dri/i915_dri.so /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-g...

Re: Probleme Booting from USB device on Samsung

@Minerator What do you call a built-in card reader? As I said, I only have the option to chose between UEFI1100 and Windows Boot Manager. If UEFI 1100 is not a USB flash drive (which I am trying to understand), then no, there is no usb flash drive listed in the BIOS boot menu. And this is precisely...

Re: using Mint 18.2 to fix Win10

Re: Probleme Booting from USB device on Samsung

@Minerator I did press F10, but the problem isn't there: in the first place I don't find any option to boot from a USB port/device (whether I am in the Set Up via F2 or in the boot menu in F10): I only have UEFI 1100 as an alternative to Windows Boot Manager. I don't understand what in your post on...

Re: Probleme Booting from USB device on Samsung

Did you press a key to invoke the BIOS boot menu? On my Samsung it's F10 I think.

Also, you may have to disable "secure boot" in BIOS. See my post here: https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2120763

Re: System Backup and Restore

You don't need to backup and restore, you can clone the old disk directly onto the new one. Boot Desktop from flash drive and run dd. First make sure source and destination disks are NOT mounted. sudo dd if=/dev/sdg of=/dev/sdh bs=8192 . Remove old disk. To be sure which disk is which run sudo lsblk...

Re: Cinnamon 18.2 freeze with kernel 4.10

LM 18.2 still has some problems Like what? The GUI is dysfunctional, has only one unusable theme, I brewed my own (1) but there are plenty more problems such as the disappearing scrollbars. Waits 10+ sec to suspend (2) , won't park HDs after resume, etc. I do agree with you on using newer kernels, ...

Re: OS suddenly starts trying to transfer everything from RAM to swap

I even run a Windows virtual machine without problems, but firefox is memory hog, you could try Chrome. Also check "system monitor" processes, you may have another memory hog in the background. You could try without swap partition, or a swap file instead.

Re: OS suddenly starts trying to transfer everything from RAM to swap

Linux starts swapping when it runs out of memory, otherwise it will crash. Perhaps you do need more ram?

My laptop has only 4GB ram and NO swap partition, that's an option.

Re: Cinnamon 18.2 freeze with kernel 4.10

Well it looks that kernel 4.10 isn't the root-cause of the problem. After sudo apt remove xserver-xorg-video-intel . I nearly get the same behavior with the current kernel 4.8. The computer boots, the Linux-logo pops up and shortly there after the screen turns blank. Only pressing the power-button ...

Re: Can't save icons positions on desktop

Metadata is stored in ~/.local/share/gvfs-metadata/home If you've run sudo commands, you may transferred ownership of some directories to ROOT. So check who owns files/directories in your profile ~ Ollala! You are right! Problem were here! Owner of ~/.local/share/gvfs-metadata/home is root I return...

LM 13 had built-in notification sounds, and you can also change the sound files so that you get your favorite BADA-BING sound. Many were deactivated in config, but notifications are built-in so no need to add udev rules. I had added my own sound to notify when the laptop power charger was plugged i...

Re: How to show faulty hardware

I'm certain of what I said but have no opinion on your defective GPU. Ok dude. Windows cannot boot from USB devices, so running Linux off a USB flash drive is the quickest way to probe hardware. You can run memory test in grub, and once the desktop boots you can run tests for disk, GL graphics benc...
