A suitable replacement for Lightning

Lightning has turned very buggy and freezes my PC for several minutes when it comes out of suspend. This is a known bug, Not much like this in Linux, what is a good app with calendar and alarms to replace it? And I prefer local, so Google is out.

Thanks Bob

Re: Filesystem checks on every boot

I think it might be up to the Ubuntu programmers to fix this, but who knows, maybe Mint can fix it and pass the code to Ubuntu just the same? :?:

Re: Filesystem checks on every boot

I am having the same problem as well with a fresh install LM 18, it is on the same partition as LM 17.3 and never had a problem with that install.

I tried this https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php ... st11469223 but it did not work for me.

Some kind of Ubuntu bug?

Best all in one for 2016

I am think my old Oki MFC C5510MFP is going to die soon, had it since 2005 and it has served me well. Can any one recommend the latest high end multi function lazer printer that works best with Linux.
I need:

Print

Thanks

Dropbox integration in KDE desktop

I used openSUSE KDE for a couple of years, and the Dolphin file manager worked great with the Dropbox public folder, allowing me to make public links, it depended on KDE-Services, and there is no such thing in the debian world. So I made a .deb file with Alien, but that still was unable to create a ...

Re: Great that we are back

Glad to see the site back too. The nerve of those characters to hack this site, but they do know the only way to crack Linux is to build it into the original source. At least that makes me feel secure knowing there is no other way.

Re: AMD or Nvidia for Linux Mint

3rd for Nvidia.

My PC has Nvidia and gets the proprietary driver.

Wife's PC has AMD and get the Noveau driver, too many headaches with proprietary driver on that machine. I know, it used to be mine.

Re: no wifi with lenovo-mint 17.3-netgear wndr4300

Did you try installing proprietary drivers with the program built into Mint to do this? That might fix it, I had to do this on a Lenovo I have myself.

Re: Clone Desktop setup

I usually delete the .dmrc, and .xauthority while I am on the live desktop before install, and just set /home as your /home with no formatting. You end up with the same desktop on the first boot. I guess dependencies can be questionable. But if I want fresh, I take a screen shot of my desktop before...

Re: If I change from Legacy to UEFI, will my clones still wo

That could be unaccepably complicated. UEFI installed OS's have to be "registered" with the NVRAM, and grub has to be installed to the ESP, not the MBR, and there are a few other hurtles that come to mind. The easier strategy might be to copy your cloned images to the partition where you want them,...
