Re: no speaker sound but when headphones are plugged in

thanks, but sadly the same. I also noticed that the pc plays without problem full hd and more in win 10 while in mint 20 even a simple 720p uses all processor power and play in slow motion. Could it be possible that the atom is not longer supported with this Linux version In the win 10 beginnings th...

Re: How can I create a custom Linux mint bootable usb

I like to try MY mint 20Cinamon on several of my older pc. Researching this "make your own distro usb" topic showed more problems than solutions. Like the Linux Live Kit what needs aufs and I thought with a brand new Mint 20 I should have a newish kernel but as it shows I have 5.4.0-48 and...

Re: [Resolved (Kinda)] Help installing Mint 20 (Cinnamon) 64 Bit from within Windows 10?

:idea: to grab this problem from another side, after the forced windows updates I installed shutup 10 activated everything and no more updates.

if I understand you right, you offer 2 different solutions, yes? The first to just timeshift and put on older version what was not messed up over the messed up one. The second one is to "open the hood" and correct the mistakes I made. All I have on Mint is on 1 partition, would that be a p...
