Re: Profile-sync-daemon - keep browser profiles in tmpfs

Hello, For Ubuntu 14.04/Mint 17, should the variable DAEMON_FILE still be set to /var/run/psd ?? I ask because I think recent versions of Ubuntu/Mint are based on Debian 7+ # Define where the pid file for psd will reside # Arch Linux/Chakra, Debian 7+, Fedora, and Gentoo leave this commented out # D...

Re: SSD: over-provisioning

It is not necessary to leave free space on each partition of the SSD. Even if one of the partition if full, as long as there is still enough free/unallocated space on the SSD, the algorythm will manage it fine. My question is why do most the tutorials recommand to not use a swap when there is enough...

SSD: over-provisioning

Hello, I have read that 10 to 25% of the space of a SSD should be left free or unallocated for over-provisioning. So for example if you have a PC with a 120Gb SSD, 12 to 25 Gb should always remain free. Many people advise to not allocate this space when partitionning the disk to make sure the space ...

Re: Remove Hibernate from Quit menu

It looks like this here.
As you can see I set allow_active to no for hibernate and of course I saved the file, but the button still remains in the quit menu.

Re: Remove Hibernate from Quit menu

My Shutdown/Quit menu looks different. I guess you're on Cinnamon, I'm running Mint 16 (main) MATE edition.
Perhaps MATE uses other config file ? (however it was done for Linux Mint 10 which used Gnome 2 I guess so it should be closer from MATE than from Cinnamon)

Re: perselect a user on the login screen

Yes almost the same idea with a little improvement : Even if there are multiple users, you could set a "favorite" user that is pre-selected. :) As I said, not a critical thing, just a little thing but that could be handy for some people. EDIT: Exactly as the issue logged on GitHub actually (https://...

perselect a user on the login screen

Hello, In 90% of the cases, it's the same user that connects to the computer (Let's call it user A). Therefore, I would like to know if it's possible to pre-select the "user A" so he can just type his password. In case "user B" or "user C" wants to log in, they can just click on their name on the us...

I opted for Mate because it is nice and it doesn't require GPU acceleration and of course I took 32-bit version. I think it's a good balance between usability and compatibility.

Re: prevent screen dimming while playing a video

Thanks for answering so fast ! :) I agree this is not a really important issue, but still it's annoying. I hope it will be fixed in the next release of mate (2.0 ?) I think mate-screensaver is a simplified version of Xscreensaver, isn't it? I guess that replacing the mate screensaver with xscreensav...
