Timeshift: should these patterns be excluded in snapshots?

Hi all. I've just installed LM 19 and now I would like to properly configure Timeshift.

[Solved] DIN Is Noise: can someone help me install it?

Hi. DIN Is Noise is an open source software musical instrument that I really would like to try. It is in Ubuntu's (17.10) repos so I think it should work in LM too but I can't make it run. This piece of software comes as tar.gz archive containing a README file stating: To build DIN Is Noise for 64-b...

Thank you, catweazel!

Can you explain that?

Hi guys. I run VBox 5.2.8 on my LM 18 Cinnamon laptop. The laptop has an integrated Intel graphic chipset and an additional Nvidia GT 635M card with 2 GB memory.

Where is audio settings in Mint 18 Xfce?

Hi all. My laptop's sound output is a bit low. I already raised the volume to maximum using [fn key] + [volume up key] but I think that some system preference is keeping it below 100%. The problem is that I can't find an audio manager or something related to speakers in the menu :roll: On another ma...

Re: Screensaver gets stuck switching between sessions

Thanks Pjotr.
I use LM at work and often I have multiple windows open and applications running at the same time, so the ability to switch between sessions without stopping what I am doing would be of great help to me.
Anyway, without a proper solution I'll just follow your advice. :)

safety of sudo apt-get upgrade vs. update manager

Hi.
If I run in terminal

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get upgrade
I get updates for every installed package on my system.
Could this operation potentially introduce errors a/o vulnerabilities in comparison to using the update manager, which I've set up to install only updates of level 1 - 3?

Hi guys, thanks for your precious suggestions. It turned out to be just a matter of hitting a different F-key: I can't understand why it has changed from F12 to F2 :shock: There is a specific info in the BIOS about the F12 key but now it just don't work anymore. Not a problem since I can access BIOS...

I don't think it's BIOS that's giving you the message, rather you need a partition marked bootable on your hard drive [where you install grub] =H Hi hinto.

Re: Why does everything want to disable secure boot?

Does secure boot make a linux machine more "secure" too?
I just disabled it yesterday on my mini-laptop (which was meant to be running Windows 10) and now at boot I get a brief message stating "booting in insecure mode".
