Re: Howdy folks!

Welcome to the forum! That's neat that you "like developing video games, creating software" - are you the creator of Facility 13? Is "A Bronze Suzanne Monkey Head" yours?

Re: [SOLVED] Log File and Notify-send

Pecu1iar - You may want to make a few more changes. Using 'killall zenity' might cause a problem with other applications that are using zenity. To avoid any problems, it'd be better to specifically close that one window using wmctrl. I've made the change below. Additionally, you may want to change t...

Re: How to switch language :|

Welcome to the forum. I don't think there's a shortcut key defined for switching languages. On Cinnamon, you can find "Languages" in the menu (under Preferences). If you really wanted a keyboard shortcut, you might be able to define a custom shortcut using the "Keyboard" applicat...

Re: Zoom - getting hung up

Have you tried fully exiting Zoom and disabling or disconnecting your internet connection? I see that it works if you restart your computer. It might be a lot easier to just disable the internet connection for a minute. I know of some commands to trace or record some items, but I don't think they'd ...

Re: "Oily" spots on my laptop? Or worn?

I've refurbished a number of used laptops. I've tried many different ways to return keyboards and palm rests back to a "new" like appearance.

The only solution I've found (that really works), is to replace the keyboards and plam rests with new.

Re: Trying to Verify a GPG Signature

I used the wildcard '*' because that was the only file in my Downloads directory that would match the pattern, and I'm a bit lazy (I always try to take the easiest route).

Just as a final note, if you want the first notification to stay longer, you make a small change. To keep the notice open until you clear it, use -u critical : notify-send -u critical "Program Sync" "Program Sync has begun!" You can also add a smiley face icon: notify-send --icon...

Re: Veracrypt and multiple user accounts

3) On one of the distros I looked at there was a very handy GUI list of checkboxes for permissions--used when creating or editing a group. I have not seen such a thing on Mint. Does it exist? If so, where? I don't know if this is what you're referring to, but on Cinnamon, in "Users and Groups&...

Re: [SOLVED] Bash sound volume question...

My mistake! Try this:

Code: Select all

volumelevel=$(pacmd list-sinks | grep -A 9 "*" | awk '/volume: front/{print $5}')
To check it, run this afterwards:

Code: Select all

echo $volumelevel
Hope that works!

Edit: Improved awk

Re: [SOLVED] Bash sound volume question...

Does this command return the correct current volume level? pacmd list-sinks | grep -A 9 "*" | awk '/volume: front/{print $5}' If so, maybe you could use it like this in MrEen's solution... #!/bin/bash volumelevel=$(pacmd list-sinks | grep -A 9 "*" | awk '/volume: front/{print $5}...

Re: Hide files in mint.

Linux Mint 19.3 uses Ubuntu Bionic, and Ubuntu Bionic is 18.04, so you'll want this file for Veracrypt:

https://launchpad.net/veracrypt/trunk/1 ... -amd64.deb

Veracrypt may seem hard at first, but once you get used to it, I think you'll like it.
