[SOLVED] No Sound when Log out and Log in - Mint 20

I have external speakers that are plugged into my laptop's headphone jack. In Mint 20, when I log out and then log back in, there is no sound. I have to physically unplug and re-plug in the headphone jack. But in Mint 19 (which I have also), it does not have this issue. The sound continues to work i...

Re: mount LUKS drive at user login

Have the exact same question as the above. I am prompted to enter a password to decrypt the partition during boot, but when I log-in to Mint, the partition is not mounted. Is there a way to get the partition to mount before I login? In Disks, it is already set to "Mount at system startup"....

Re: Screen Too Bright - Linux Mint 20

Is there any way to program the level of brightness I want so that when I log-in to Mint 20, it will automatically set that level? Currently the default is the brightest level.

Re: Graphical bugs in some applications (including VS code)

How long have you been using 19.3 before this issue came up with the recently installed applications?

A few editions ago on a new install I had severe graphical issues when trying to install Cinnamon and I switched to MATE which has worked fine. Have been using MATE ever since.

Re: Mint 20 Install on a new partition - what to do on Installation Type Screen

Ok. On the same screen, under "System", it has the label for sda1 as "Windows 10", which is not correct. My windows partition in sda2, and this is seen both with "blkid" in the terminal and if I open Gparted (both while booting from the live USB). Can I safely ignore th...

Ok, so now after I select those options it brings up another window stating: If you continue, the changes listed below will be written to the disks. Otherwise, you will be able to make further changes manually. The following partitions are going to be formatted: partition #8 of SCSI2 (0,0,0) (sda) a...

Re: Mint 20 Install on a new partition - what to do on Installation Type Screen

Another question, since the format of sda7 is already ext4, should I leave the "Format" button unchecked?

Re: Mint 20 Install on a new partition - what to do on Installation Type Screen

Why wouldn't I have my Mint 20 install on a separate partition Sorry for not being clear, what I meant is that why is the bootloader selection is on a partition, instead of the whole disk? And, select /dev/sda7, mount point /, then make a /home if you want. Then install now. It should install prope...

Re: Running out of space on root - Can I resize Partitions?

Right now everything seems to be functioning normally, it took a couple reboots of doing nothing and the original mount points seem restored. Then, for the time being, I'll stop worrying. :) At your convenience, I'd appreciate if you would post a screenshot from GParted. As for the difference betwe...

Re: Mint 20 Install on a new partition - what to do on Installation Type Screen

Just select where you want to install Linux Mint. In your case sda7 right? Well, select /dev/sda for bootloader installation, it's just for installing grub. EDIT: Wait, why is it on a partition? What comes up when you press the drop down menu? And, press /dev/sda7 and click Change somewhere at the ...

Re: How can I access my Windows files and programs Kept in Linux

So it's a dual boot? Or when you start your computer is there no option to load windows and it automatically loads into linux mint? Maybe this command would be helpful to see the partitions:

Code: Select all

lsblk --output name,size,fstype,label,mountpoint,partflags

Re: Running out of space on root - Can I resize Partitions?

Oh dear. What happened to ... ? I wasn't planning on touching the encrypted partition, I would de-encrypt it, transfer the data to an external drive, do whatever I had to with the encrypted partition, make a new encrypted partition, and transfer the data back. Probably the best solution still, but ...

Just a warning!

I have done this s few times and suddenly firefox or thunderbird si...

[SOLVED] Sharing Data Partition Across Linux Partitions

I followed the advice of a few of the posters here and separated a /data partition from my root/Mint 19 install. That includes thunderbird, all files, etc. I am now going to be installing Mint 20 on another partition. The plan is to stop using Mint 19, but I expect that it will be some time before I...

Re: Running out of space on root - Can I resize Partitions?

I rebooted with a live USB again and when I unencrypt the encrypted partition (sda6), it shows the path as /dev/mapper/sda6_crypt. The Disks utility shows all the partitions and the same paths. Still don't see how to edit fstab from there, as it is mainly blank. I rebooted back into the system and t...
