Re: Changing video resolution manually

I understand about the monitor settings athi, when I run Windows it shows the 1368 resolution. As far as going into settings after I run the script in terminal, yes I have gone into settings and selected the 1368 mode and applied but it will not retain it after shutdown.

Re: Changing video resolution manually

This is the main reason that Linux is not a more popular desktop environment, having to write scripts to accomplish many things. I remember having to write scripts for MS-Dos and CPM, what a pain.

Re: [solved] Mint 19.2 Cinnamon - shutdown delay and screen resolution problem

Found the problem, when you set the Font setting - Font scaling factor to greater than 1.2 the display becomes too large for the monitors and laps around?

Re: Linux Mint 19.2 shutdown delay.

OK, the slowdown on shutting down seems to have dissapeared but the shrinking of LibreOffice is still there under 1358 x 768 resolution.

Where is the forum or web site to report problems?

Re: Creating a bootable disk image

I failed to specify (DS on my part) that my SSD is 240Gig so an image transfer would not work from the 2TB drive even though the linux partition is only 200Gig. Any other ideas?

Creating a bootable disk image (Resolved)

I just installed a new SSD and I want to move my OS and all data from my 2TB drive. I tried to understand CloneZilla but not being linux literate it left me more confused then when I started. Does anyone know of any Dummie friendly software?

Re: Networking 2 computers

Since I am planing to be the only one on the system, permissions would not be an issue and I only modify the files on my MEGAsync file. Thanks for the help to both of you. Now I can get back to my other issues.
