I switched on the sound in the monitor as usual. No HDMI sound output. No notebook sound output. Just a thing named Dummy Output. It is a few week...

Reinstalling package crashed Cinnamon [SOLVED]

A problem with sound output had only one solution I could find online. An ubuntu page said to delete and reinstall alsa-? and pulseaudio. When I ran the delete command, it deleted Cinnamon. :shock: How can a component like sound be locked into the GUI package? I can imagine Cinnamon listing somethin...

Timeshift restore from Live boot problems [SOLVED]

I had to restore a Timeshift snapshot from a live boot of Linux Mint. Timeshift could not access the timeshift snapshot disk. It said i did not have permission. I guessed there might be a DOS box version. Experiments with the command line accidentally produced an interactive version from timeshift -...

Because we’re using the venerable i386 architecture variant it should run even on vintage machines like my ThinkPad X40, provided they have at least 512MB of RAM.

Re: Is really the end for 32-bit?

My first Intel computer was 4 bit. Debian does not support 4 bit anymore. :shock:
Although I did build something earlier using stacked 1 bit technology. Do you think you can get 1 bit Linux anymore? :(

Re: What USB Mouse do you use for your LinuxMint ?

Any full size wireless mouse that uses cheap AA batteries instead of AAA. Currently a Logitech that was in a clearance sale so long ago that the shop accepted cash. In a cold winter, way back before climate change, I wrapped it in fake fur and added a fluffy black nose. Sort of a koala instead of a ...

Re: Gimp, Simplescan, Image Viewer problems

Thank you for pointing to the resources setting. I will experiment in my 16 GB computer.
Irfanview in Wine sounds interesting. I used that on Windows a long time ago.

Re: nemo insanely slow when many files in directory

no need to sort
That is a sticking point. I sometimes need to sort media info. I will leave the extension installed and switched off. When I do need that data displayed and sorted, I will switch the extension on.

Thank you for the link KM. I will look at upgrading Gimp from the default 2.8 to 2.10. I also highlighted the first question in the intro. I did not have time to type the second question so i will edit the intro again.

Re: Gimp, Simplescan, Image Viewer problems

Gimp is incredibly slow at saving PNG files. I found posts saying that is the compression and can be reduced by choosing a lower level of compression. Gimp appears to run the compression in the same thread instead of dumping it out to run on a separate thread that can use one of the three unused cor...

Gimp, Simplescan, Image Viewer problems

Gimp is single threaded even when I have several images open in different windows. Well, there might be more than one thread for some things but I see only one thread for most uses. Gimp keeps the keyboard responsive. I can select images in succession and do something like rotate or save but the wor...

Re: nemo insanely slow when many files in directory

https://github.com/linuxmint/nemo/issues/1907 I switched off all Nemo extensions to get the old Nemo speed back but it is useless without some of those extensions. I switched Fileroller back on without slowing down Nemo. I think Fileroller only does stuff when you right click. I have no use for the...
