Re: software rendering

Software rendering usually means the driver for your graphics card doesn't support hardware accelerated rendering. The CPU can also do the rendering but it is less efficient (obviously) at it than the GPU. MATE and Xfce don't use the GPU by default for their graphics while Cinnamon does. Hence the d...

Re: geen file of directory

Ontbreken van pam_kwallet.so heeft niets te maken met hoog aantal local timer interrupts. Beiden zaken die je aanstipt zijn normaal en onschadelijk. Grof samengevat is Linux-PAM (pluggable authentication modules) een modulair systeem dat zit tussen applicaties waar een gebruiker op moet inloggen om ...

Re: I wonder if this would work... criticism and suggestions welcome

I can't imagine what you're doing that needs RAID 0 because your 3,200 GB/s NVMe drives are too slow . Or that you'd see any significant or even noticeable difference with RAID 0 on such drives except in benchmarks. Real world applications do stuff with the data they are loading and drive speed is j...

Re: Transfering programs from old to new installation

In short: that won't work. Linux Mint 17.3 and 18.3 use a different package base (Ubuntu 14.04 vs 16.04) and thus have different versions of system libraries, or will even use entirely different libraries for specific areas. Programs are compiled to work with the system libraries that come with the ...

Re: Baldur's Gate

Assuming they bought Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition, they can download it for Linux, Windows and macOS without limitation. It works on Linux Mint 17.x, 18.x and 19.x. I have it on Steam instead so can't comment on GOG's version. I'd suggest to see what the exec command in the desktop launcher is, a...

Re: broken symbolic links

Obvious if you ask for verbose output: $ ln -sv test.file Desktop 'Desktop/test.file' -> 'test.file' This creates a symbolic link Desktop/test.file that points to 'test.file' in the same directory (Desktop) because you didn't include any path information. As the only file called 'test.file' in Deskt...

How about instead of you asking us to wade through almost 2000 lines of text, you share here the (few) specific lines you're in doubt about and what your doubts are. I'm assuming you'd already have done an internet search for any such lines yourself, to find out if answers for them are out there. rk...

Re: Leopards do change their spots, and why you should care

That's big news for OIN members and licensees. We're an OIN licensee. But I've lived through too many EEE maneuvers of Microsoft. I'll believe it without reservations if they don't change their spots again in a few years. Samsung hasn't joined OIN so Microsoft will likely continue to get money from ...

Re: What's the latest Mint edition to continue use of GTK +2 for UI?

I guess Linux Mint 11? Linux Mint 12 had Gnome 3 with MGSE and Linux Mint 13 had Cinnamon (superseding MGSE) and MATE. Cinnamon has always been Gtk 3. For Gtk 2 you'd have to gamble on MATE I think. Their Gtk 2 to Gtk 3 migration path says from MATE 1.17 the migration is complete so use a Linux Mint...

But the hashbang line for the scripts is #!/bin/bash, so dash should be loading bash to execute the script.
