Try booting from an older kernel; it might be a driver issue.
But I have not changed kernel prior to this happening.

Maybe not, but that's the only way to make 100 % sure that you have a clean FF profile. God knows what add-ons can do.... :wink:
Tried it, that is to say, I did what you said, then restarted my computer, and before launching FF I tried the volume keys but they did not work.

Re: [SOLVED] TRIM and my SSD

Can you run the additional script directly i.e. via this command in a terminal /etc/cron.weekly/fstrim . I suspect it's not set to be executable. If you've got both the systemd timer and the script in cron.weekly both working, what i'd expect to see is trim running twice weekly (once via the system...

Re: Mulitmedia keyboard keys not working anymore

Backup your bookmarks, close Firefox, delete the current ~/.mozilla profile, launch Firefox again, import the Bookmarks backup. By deleting the current profile and restarting FF, a new profile will be made, but all my settings, esp. those in about:config, will be gone. That is a lot to lose. Are yo...

[SOLVED] Multimedia keyboard keys not working anymore

They were working fine (vol up, vol down, mute/unmute), but when I installed a Firefox extension for YouTube Classic, they stopped. I uninstalled the extension, but they still don't work. I understand they are controlled by xfce4-volumed, but that is running and they don't work. Here is output from ...

Re: TRIM and my SSD

I think there may be some versioning related confusion going on in this thread.... Out of the box Mint 18.x use anacron via a script in /etc/cron.weekly/fstrim to manage it's automated weekly trim Mint 19.x doesn't have this file and uses a systemd timed service instead.

Re: TRIM and my SSD

OK HaveaMint, if that works for you, it should work for me. And, like I said, even after saving "your" fstrim file there, my check showed that the TRIM operation is still enabled, so all should be well. Perhaps the "enable" code as in my previous reply is not used anymore and TRIM is enabled in anot...

Re: TRIM and my SSD

That is the contents of fstrim located in /etc/cron.weekly/fstrim. It is in cron.weekly because I want it to run weekly. If one wanted it to run daily, hourly or monthly then that file needs to be in the corresponding folder. cron.png I do have 1 other question: as I understand it TRIM is enabled b...

Re: TRIM and my SSD

You can set fstrim to have a report on your desktop as such. #!/bin/sh LOG=/home/mark/Desktop/trim.log echo "*** $(date -R) ***" >> $LOG fstrim -v / >> $LOG fstrim -v /home >> $LOG I have root and home on the ssd and Trimmed weekly. The output is like below. *** Thu, 09 May 2019 00:26:27 -0500 *** ...

Thank you for that. The output is not understandable for a newbie like me. Is there a way to get to some sort of more humanly intelligible output?

Absolutely, Moem. And to think how simple the solution was !! I could have avoided at least 2 reinstallations, but I put it down to the learning curve, it's good experience.

Re: Change ownership

You should be able to create a folder within the mounted veracrypt volume. (If you can't you have other ownership issues) Move your files into the folder then just right click to properties and change the folder and contents permissions. BTW I happily use both CMD and GUI but for messing with verac...
