Re: Are there other compatibility resources to verify Acer/Mint install?

Welcome to the Linux Mint forums. It looks like you may expect issues with internal audio and with boot video on that. Taking that info from the hardware compatibility list over at GalliumOS, a Linux distro for ChromeOS devices: https://wiki.galliumos.org/Hardware_Compatibility Installing Linux Mint...

Re: Firefox Issues

Possibly something in extension you installed? I'd suggest to create a new user account on this system and log in to that. See if you can reproduce the issue on the new user account. If you can not reproduce the issue on the new user account that means it's something in extension or setting on your ...

Re: Problems with using tr cmd in bash script.

The pure bash way with parameter expansion to substitute all spaces with underscores: #!/bin/bash mv "$@" "${@// /_}" Mind that "$@" joins all arguments to the script with single spaces. This is likely not what you want. Say you have a file called hello world.c , calling your script as myscript hell...

Re: Can you install Deepin Desktop Environment on LMDE?

LMDE 3 is based on Debian Stretch. Deepin packages don't appear in Debian until Debian Buster. Buster is the future release of Debian (likely the package base for LMDE 4). Mind that the linked tutorial is for a long time ago and won't work as written (if at all) with any currently supported version ...

Re: How to prevent showing Level 4 update?

You're on the wrong tab in preferences. See the options tab where you could disable to always show security and kernel updates, which is what your Update Manager is showing you. That said, if this computer is connected to the Internet you should really reconsider and leave default to show all securi...

Re: Change in auto-refresh in update manager

If I understand you correctly, that's not technically possible I think. Auto-refresh downloads the repository index—a single file per repository—at set intervals. There's no distinction between update levels within a repository. The levels are something that Update Manager adds when displaying packa...

Re: How to confirm

Welcome to the Linux Mint forums. All package updates on the repository are listed in a file that has their SHA256 checksum. That file is cryptographically signed by the developers. For any package update your Update Manager (and also Software Manager if you install new packages) verifies that the f...

Re: Keyboard shortcut or command to turn off screen ?

From what I've read the keyboard may not generate a keyboard event for that key combination but some other hardware event, like an ACPI event. Don't know if you can reassign the key combination. Easiest to use a different keyboard shortcut, one that doesn't have a set function on the keyboard.

Re: Fresh LMDE3 installation. Should I go for Legacy Bios or UEFI?

all I have been able to surmise is that [UEFI] was a Microsoft thing to prevent pirating Windows. I guess it works for them but it is a royal pain in the tush for us alternate types. That seems very far from the truth. The UEFI history summarized (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unified_Extensible_Fi...

Re: Keyboard shortcut or command to turn off screen ?

Possibly this command will do what you need:

You can bind it to a keyboard shortcut in the keyboard settings.

Re: Flatpak version Nextcloud-client missing nemo integration

I'm not sure that can work. Flatpaks can't use system libraries or files. They can only use things in their own flatpak or in other flatpaks that they depend on (like runtimes).

Re: Fresh LMDE3 installation. Should I go for Legacy Bios or EUFI?

UEFI mode installs with GPT partition format which is much more more flexible and suitable for modern systems than MBR partition format likely used for BIOS mode. UEFI mode is often faster to boot. Generally I would prefer UEFI mode unless you are installing to dual boot with another operating syste...

Indeed. Either downgrade to 4.4 or move to 4.15. (To downgrade, install a 4.4 kernel if you don't have any installed yet, then reboot your computer and hold down shift key during boot to make GRUB menu appear and there you can select to boot the 4.4 kernel—you can then remove the 4.13 kernels.)
