Re: [SOLVED] Unable to Get Sound/Audio

Synaptic Package Manager shows pulseaudio installed. I can't find the program listed and it doesn't come up in menu search. what I do have is a Sound app that shows Dummy Input and Output with no Hardware listed. So, I am assuming since I can't open a "pulseaudio" application that it must be somethi...

Re:Unable to Get Sound/Audio

No, but thank you for suggesting that. alsamixer didn't show up in software manager, so I got Gnome-alsamixer which opened to a blank screen with menu items that did nothing. I removed that and looked for qasmixer - it did not show up in software manager or Synaptic Package Manager. So thanks, I hav...

Re: Unable to Get Sound/Audio

Similar situation, looking all over the place to see if I can't figure it out. Nope. Was about to download Gnome-alsamixer, but before I do, maybe I ask for input. Installed Serena 18.1 MATE on new HP. Had GRUB bugs, shutdown bugs, wifi bugs and UEFI OS boot order issue all worked out. Sat back and ...

Re: where to start troubleshooting shutdown problems

Man! That was awesome! It was like a laptop smack-down. BAM! OFF! DONE!

The laptop is shutting down without any of that rouge fan operation going on anymore. One smack-down and it is behaving now.

ThanKs! That worked like lightning. :twisted:

Re: A riddle

Whatever you pick - somebody is going to show you a goat. The first choice is already made, it is either a car or not. the fact that someone shows you a goat has no bearing on the fact that you either select a car or a goat. Changing your mind does not improve your odds, the second goat is just ther...

Re: Serena 18.1 UEFI Secure Boot non-issue

Initial state - I start the device, press esc, select boot menu, I select ubuntu; this produces the GRUB, then I select Linux/Ubuntu. There is not an entry for win10 in the GRUB. If boot and do nothing, win10 loads. That is why I didn't notice it was a missing option earlier. After reading your mess...

Re: no wifi connection linux mint 18

The weaker antenna information is displayed, but the Network Connection icon in the taskbar is considerably more responsive. Instead of freezing the loopy circle and repeatedly notifying me that I am now offline every 7 seconds as previously observed (but not reported), it now animates the loopy cir...

I tried a variant of :idea: echo " blacklist acer-wmi" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/acer-wmi.conf before the 2nd install, but the problem was there is no acer-wmi.conf in the modprobe.d folder, even though I had instructions to create it - nothing changed so fortunately the instructions also said basi...

Correct you are, sir. However; there has been a development. Repeatedly rebooting last night, no change. Sitting overnight and rebooting, Enabled Wi-Fi for a lark and presto - asked for password and brought wi-fi online. ARRG! I enabled wi-fi and a notification came up about "wi-fi networks are avai...

Same problem, but I did not understand the above very much & figure I'd need some help picking which commands to use. What i DO know is I messed around and disabled wi-fi when i left the NEW hp machine dual-boot Serena MATE 18.1 / win(ce)10 unattended. Everything was relatively fine before that. I'v...

Re: where to start troubleshooting shutdown problems

I am having this also. Used shut down, which kills screen and it goes into an unresponsive sleep mode (because it was shut down), little light indicating power status on when it should turn off. After a while the fan comes on. It blows cool air, nothing seems to heat up. I gave it two minutes, appea...

Solved grub & Serena 18.1 UEFI Secure Boot non-issue

Just installed linuxmint-18.1-mate-64bit.iso image from bootable micro-SD Card created with Linux Live (so far so good) and booted straight to windows 10. no grub. this was not the desired effect. Actually, Linux Live doesn't officially support Serena 18.1 at this time, so technically there could BE...
