Re: High GPU temperature + microstuttering (GTX 1080 Ti, Mint 19)

Managed to fix all the installation problems and I have a fresh new Linux Mint Cinnamon 19 set up. Right out of the gate, exact same behaviour as described above. Kernel: 4.15.0-20-generic x86_64 I have the same kernel 4.15.0-20 (came with the OS), Firefox is running, a mkv movie meant for a 1200p ...

Re: New VLC (3.0) steals focus when watching video (anyone else affected?)

I just tried what the OP said and nothing happened. All with the VLC's default settings because I don't use VLC for watching movies (I use SMPlayer). https://s20.postimg.cc/f9w23g6zd/2018-07-13_05-21-40.png In these 25 minutes until the screenshot nothing particular happened - the folder remained on...

Re: New user worried about Microsoft

Even if this were to happen, LM can turn directly to Debian as its base, ie bypasses the M$-owned Ubuntu.

Too fast uploading content on a flash drive

I noticed this problem in 18.3 and it seems it's still present in 19: when I format a USB flash drive and then I try to upload anything on it (even a simple docx file), the upload speed is 155 MB/second (the normal speed of this FDD is 10 MB tops). If the file is, for instance, 700 MB, uploading rea...

Re: Is Linux Mint ugly?

why so many people think it's ugly? Because grey is ugly. If the default theme had color B1D190 (the image below) it would look a lot better. And fresh. With the grey theme it looks too much like Windows 98. https://www.kaminata.net/forum/images/smilies/emoticon-0119-puke.gif https://s22.postimg.cc...

Re: Mint 19 stable = forcing hands just like Microcrap

Indeed and I don't think that Mint is even close to being digital tyrannical at all. It pays to read the release notes and known issues before doing an in place upgrade to a new release. Tell that to the backdoor devs of Mint. An 18.3 system which used to work quite fine 2 weeks ago now updates on ...

Re: Mint 19 stable = forcing hands just like Microcrap

Thanks, Karlchen, but it's not my job to fix the bullsh*t Mint devs have done. A moment ago I exported from a backup the last supposedly stable Mint 18.3 Cinnamon edition. When it started, all the applets and desklets stopped working with the message they're no longer supported by the current system...

Re: Mint 19 stable = forcing hands just like Microcrap

Are you sure it is the Intel microcode doing this? 100% sure! When I installed the nvidia driver (before proceeding to update manager), everything was fine. I rebooted the system so that nvidia driver starts working and the DE appeared without much of a problem. But after the update manager refused...

Re: Mint 19 stable = forcing hands just like Microcrap

it can be told from /var/log/syslog or with the help of "journalctl -b". This would work if the OS were capable of loading a normal DE. As you can see from the screenshot above, that's impossible! Every reboot gets me to this screen. Before updating the system (installing the dumb microcode), all r...

Mint 19 stable = forcing hands just like Microcrap

1. Doesn't allow to deselect intel microcode before clicking "apply updates". You check what's gonna be installed, go back and deselect intel microcode, then click apply. Check again and the stupid microcode is still included. In my book this is called "forcing hands"! 2. After installing the microc...

I really don't understand the burning tools anymore...

In Windows 7 (a VM really but still - a Windows) ImgBurn says "can't burn on this disk". Put it out, put it in - still the same. So I shut the VM down and try XFBurn - "There's no media in the device". Brasero - the same. I was gettting desperate and decided to try K3B, altough I already know by pre...

Re: How can I change the combination Ctrl+H?

OK, but I don't wanna open the terminal every time I need to unhide the hidden folders, I just need to change the command Ctrl+H to something easier to press. The only thing I liked about Manjaro was that Ctrl+H was replaced by "Alt+dot" command and this is what I wanna do in Mint.

Have you considered creating an alias for those ls options? Here are the ls aliases I added to my .bashrc. I put them below the section that starts off
I assume after creating those aliases you enter their names in the command field when you add a new keyboard shortcut?
