Re: Copiable error message would be nice

Hi, Newling. I can assure you that message/warning/error boxes, which do not permit highlighting and copying the text inside the boxes, are an annoyance to me as well. For precisely the reason which you explained: no text to be copied and pasted into a Google search box. Instead trying to type the s...

Re: LM 19.3 xfce taking up about 70-90% of my CPU

Hi, pbear. OK. I see. Nonetheless, in order to use additional kernel settings in Grub on a live system, you have to enter the Grub menu at startup time and add the parameter(s), which you want to add, in the line which starts with linux /boot/vmlinuz-4.15.0-54-generic ... Assuming that the advice , ...

Re: LM 19.3 xfce taking up about 70-90% of my CPU

Hi, pbear. I am not sure whether I understand you right. Fixing the live session by editing /etc/default/grub, executing "sudo update-grub" and rebooting will not work, because when restarting the live system will have forgotten about the changes. But you know that, don't you. If your idea is to use...

Re: on 18.1 Chrome and Vivaldi fail to load https:// sites

Hello, Tmay. Great to learn that your Vivaldi and Chrome browsers have been returned to normal operation again. :D I assume that the most important upgrade in this respect will have been the list of certificates, where outdated certificates have been removed and new ones installed. Yet, other softwa...

Though it is possible to fix the cause as well. But doing so has got low priority. Processing triggers for initramfs-tools (0.122ubuntu8.16) ...

Hi, DamnedDog. So this is where this thread ends for me. The initial (incomplete) inxi report in your very first post had clearly been created on a Linux Mint system, installed on a harddisk, not on a live system.

Re: LM 19.3 xfce taking up about 70-90% of my CPU

Hi, DamnedDog.

You are not trying to sudo update-grub from a Linux Mint live-system? You are doing it from the Linux Mint installed on your harddisk, right?

Hi, DamnedDog. As mentioned in a previous post: after having edited /etc/default/grub and saved the changes, you have to execute sudo update-grub in order to make Grub use the changed setting during the next reboot. Apart from this I really think it will make more sense trying to identify the device...
