Re: KDENlive keeps crashing Mint 18.1 KDE

Ok, did everything you said above but the ffmpeg 3.x because that link was to an icon rather than software or instructions. I'm not the one doing the work with Kden, my partner is, and we're in a bad blizzard here right now so he isn't here to test it. I'm trying to find out how to clone my SSD whic...

How do I clone/make complete perfect bootup copy? [SOLVED]

Going into this I didn't know that I will want to go "all in" for Linux. I had 2 SSDs for my work computer and one was a 60 GB and one was a 120GB. I cannot afford to purchase another drive right now, and while I was planning on using the 120GB for Windows, I no longer have that plan. How ...

Re: Using Dolphin, can't copy from NTFS drive to EXT4 drive

How do I establish a "group" for permissions? Right now it shows group to be my account only it seems. Do I have to set up a group, or is /home a group?

BTW, I wish I was going to SXSW! I have friends there, I went to college down the road. I miss TJ (Tejas for those of you not from there). I sure would love me some CFS right now.

Re: Using Dolphin, can't copy from NTFS drive to EXT4 drive

Now, IIRCC, ownership and permissions involves user, group, world or something to that effect. I have two accounts on this computer, can both own those partitions, or is there a way to let the other account see them?

Re: Using Dolphin, can't copy from NTFS drive to EXT4 drive

That worked. I messed up on the typing some and had to boot as root and edit fstab some more, but it worked. Seems kinda a weird solution for some reason, though. Could I have put those mount points in /home rather than /home/myusername? Seems that the ownership was indeed an issue, and I can see th...

Re: KDENlive keeps crashing Mint 18.1 KDE

EDIT: I missed your reply, it's late so I will do all of that tomorrow, but here's where I am at at the moment: Well, it's still crashing. Everything else runs well except the video editing on the machine in Mint. I wonder if one problem is that I need to transcode the disparate videos (which come f...

Re: Using Dolphin, can't copy from NTFS drive to EXT4 drive

Ok, to right click, what do I right click on, in the Kmenu I right click on the file manager icon and no such option appears, that's what I thought I was supposed to do though.

Re: KDENlive keeps crashing Mint 18.1 KDE

Ok, we tried after doing the above things and it still crashes. Open Shot, however, has somehow updated now (probably satisfied libs or something with the ffmpg).

I assume at this point that it is a bug?

I've never reported bugs and wonder if I should do so and what that involves?

Re: KDENlive keeps crashing Mint 18.1 KDE

Grep gives:

Code: Select all

lsmod | grep nvidia
nvidia_uvm             36864  0
nvidia              10571776  96 nvidia_uvm
drm                   364544  3 nvidia
So that seems to indicate it worked?

I'll try that and the rest of the things and get back to you guys!

Re: Using Dolphin, can't copy from NTFS drive to EXT4 drive

Could you offer to me how to go about owning the two partitions, I expect it would have to be done in term and would be a chown command? I don't have experience with command line well enough yet, trying to learn.

Using Dolphin, can't copy from NTFS drive to EXT4 drive

so in Linux Mint KDE using Dolphin, I can copy files from my NTFS drives to my home directory in Mint, but I have two other drives with EXT4 partitions and it won't permit me to copy to them. Do I have to manually set permissions for those partitions, and is command line the only way, and if there w...

Re: KDENlive keeps crashing Mint 18.1 KDE

I updated to Version 16.12.2 off of Kden site, and it still crashes. It happens even loading the work we were doing, but I wasn't doing the editing so I don't know what specifically makes it crash. Also, I was wrong about OpenShot, it runs fine, but KDEN is so much nicer and we'd love to be able to ...

Re: KDENlive keeps crashing Mint 18.1 KDE

Just to add, Everything else is very stable, the CPU is an i7 first gen, and while I forget what video card we're using, as we inherited it, it's a pro card IIRC. I saw one video about getting a different repo and version, but I don't know what the current PPA is, the one in the video doesn't work. ...

Oh man, I'm sorry I didn't get back here sooner and reply to you all. Give me a little. I've been able to access the drives since now.
