UFW Blocks samba

Thanks for reading and trying to lend a hand. I don't know what I or some application touched but now I can't use Samba with UFW running. If I turn off UFW I can see all my smb clients. I uninstalled and reinstalled UFW and Samba and no change. I have the same rules in UFW I've always used, here a c...

Re: Power Manger Suspend and File Operations

Here's an update: I did more extensive testing with Kodi. When Kodi is running the screensaver with function but suspend is inhibited by Kodi. I'm guessing some sort of dbus message. As far as the file transfer issue I still have more work to do on that. Anyone who looked at the script I previously ...

Re: How to run Garmin Express in Mint [Solved]

I have it running in vmware virtual machine. I had a similar disk size problem with my vmware vm and I increased the virtual disk size with no problems. I guess the only thing you need to make sure of up front is that the drive your vm file is on has enough space to accommodate the larger virtual di...

Re: Power Manger Suspend and File Operations

I checked my BIOS and there is no setting for acpi. Where would I add the other suggestions pci=noacpi or acpi=off kernel ? The other thing I did was some research and based on a script I found I wrote a script as a work around. The only problem with the script is the initial test of the If statemen...

I started the file transfer use Thunar and as expected it was going to take hours. I checked the computer awhile later and found it in suspend mode. I was confused ...

Re: Seeing double text from desktop icons with LM Xfce latest

I'm having a similar problem in XFCE 18. I get double desktop icons and the associated text. A restart usually fixed it until a few days ago. One set of the icons are just graphics, no action if you click on them, can't be selected and can't move them. While the other set are normal and function pro...

Re: IPOD Unable to transfer music and GTKPOD

Great to hear progress is being made. Let me give you another heads up. With the large amount of songs you'll have be ready for a little hesitation on the part of Banshee once you get everything in. Just need to exercise patience.

Re: IPOD Unable to transfer music and GTKPOD

I just checked Banshee. I have 7,340 songs. When I saw your latest post it jogged my memory. I did have a similar problem when I first set up Banshee. I recall Banshee freezing at some number of songs, I don't remember exactly how many. I never had the setting selected to "copy files to the media fo...

Re: Mint 18 screen saver / screen off settings are terrible

I just realized my issue is an Xfce related one. I have a second machine with Cinnamon 18 and I have no problem with the Screensaver activating while using Kodi. The machine that the Screensaver activates when Kodi runs is Xfce 18.

Re: Mint 18 screen saver / screen off settings are terrible

Wow! I just read this entire thread and feel like I fell off the end of a cliff. Was there any resolution? I've had my share of time spent between Screensaver Settings and Power Settings. Maybe I have it set up the way I want (should have underlined Maybe). I'm using Xfce 18 and am a little confused...
