Re: CPU usage affecting ZOOM meeting

I am using LM20 w/Cinnamon Yesterday I looked into CONKY and HToP in Software Manager. I could swear I clicked to install Conky but HTop appeared in my Menu. Doesn't seem to be any more informative than System Monitor which came with the distro.

Re: NVIDIA driver fails to install LM19.3

Perhaps my original post on this topic was a case of TMI. The recommendation to install the Nvidia 390 driver came at the end of the re-installation of 19.3 and concluded by announcing that the installation had failed mentioning that there were 3 broken packages but did not identify them. Through pa...

I'm trying to solve a specific problem and you send me the release notes covering the whole ball of wax ???? You are "trying to solve a specific problem" by using your own faulty diagnosis.

Re: /home on 2nd hdd install LM20 Cinnamon on SSD

Thanks to arvy, I hope this additional information will produce some results. Okay, krusty. Firstly, I am going to assume that your primary interest is getting things back into working order rather than any long-winded re-hash of what went wrong, etc., etc. Secondly, based both on the fact that you...

Running Mint 19.3 with MATE. I lost my keyboard toggle and can't find out how to get it back on the panel. A while back I used "reset panel" and the only items left behind are Bluetooth, System Update, and Network (WIFI unless I plug in an ethernet cable.) I used to have "en" and "es" available at c...

Re: PDF booklet with color

@ Jungle_Boy As of June 2019 Both Foxit (which I've used for years to print booklets, and Adobe Reader) have eliminated booklet printing. No explanation given. I tried installing Adobe Reader 9 & 8 but both put up roadblocks leading to their "new, improved version." I've been using the Windows versi...

Re: EPSON WF-3540 no print after 19.1 upgrade

I'm not familiar with the term/acronym URI but the command gave me no results. Since URI is part of the second command I haven't tried that yet.
