Re: How can I go directly from the crypt password to my desktop, bypassing username/password screen?

I run mount -t ecryptfs and see this: /home/.ecryptfs/pepperminty/.Private on /home/pepperminty type ecryptfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,ecryptfs_fnek_sig=7bb7aeddfbb68224,ecryptfs_sig=206d028ef66dd709,ecryptfs_cipher=aes,ecryptfs_key_bytes=16,ecryptfs_unlink_sigs) So does this mean I have double enc...

Re: How can I go directly from the crypt password to my desktop, bypassing username/password screen?

If I recall corectly, I didn't choose both "home-directory encryption" and "full-disk encryption". IIRC, when I did the fresh install, the installer asked me about encryption, and I chose Encrypt the entire volume/disk. Is there a way to check which of the 2 (or whether both) enc...

Re: How can I go directly from the crypt password to my desktop, bypassing username/password screen?

Hi Rene, thanks for your reply. I did as you said and supplied my username in the "username" blank in the "Automatic login" section of "Users" section of "Login Window". Even after a reboot, however, I still need to enter my username and password. When I mouse...

[solved] How can I go directly from the crypt password to my desktop, bypassing username/password screen?

When I boot up my Linux Mint 19.3 computer, I first see an "sda3_crypt" blank with an Linux Mint logo and a black background. After I enter that, I then am taken to a screen where it asks for the username and password (the same password as sudo). How can I go directly from the sda3_crypt p...

On landlines where I have to first dial 9 to get dialtone, "*67" (to hide my number) doesn't work.

On a regular landline phone, I can hide my phone number from showing up, by first dialing *67 . But on some landline phones, on those phones where I have to first dial 9 to get an "outside line", adding *67 doesn't do anything. How then can I keep my phone number from showing up on the oth...

Thanks for your reply, Moem.

Okay... is there a way to remove the link between "synaptics' and "mouse and touchpad". This is my computer, and for me, synaptics is all about Synaptic Package Manager. I want to personalize my computer.

I tap WindowsLogo & search for Syna, I get "Mouse&Touchpad". I don't want that. I want Synaptic Manager.

When I press the Windows Logo on my keyboard (which brings up the Mint Menu), and start typing "Syna"..., I see "Mouse and Touchpad" over "Synaptic Package Manager". Why do I see "Mouse and Touchpad"? And how do I remove "Mouse and Touchpad" from the...

I installed a Windows program through Wine. Days later, I don't know how to restart that program

I installed Wine through Software Manager. (I have Mint 19.3 Cinnamon on my computer). IIRC, I installed Adobe Digital Edition (for Windows) through Wine. But when I search for Adobe Digital Editions in my main mint menu, it can't find it. How can I easily start up ADE?

I now want to back up (download) all the message history into to some human-readable format; Android Viber has a setting that lets you back up to your Google Drive, but it's not human-readable, and is only usable for restoring b...

Re: How to set environment variables for the calibre program in Mint Cinnamon [solved]

karichen,
initially, i tried env CALIBRE_USE_SYSTEM_THEME=1 calibre but it did nothing. i then tried env CALIBRE_USE_DARK_PALETTE=1 calibre and it worked. the developer said he didn't give instructions for linux because there's multiple answers (because there's multiple linux flavors)

I'd like to change the theme of Calibre and the developer has made his program quite customizable: https://manual.calibre-ebook.com/customize.html#id1 . According to that link, we can use "CALIBRE_USE_SYSTEM_THEME". My question is: How do we set this environment variable on Linux Mint Cinn...
