Re: No audio after fresh install

Did you try with other headphones? Also, open Synaptic ahd see whether you have the selected libraries installed. By default you get only the first 2 and the rest you must install manually. I used to have all kinds of audio problems (distortions included) before I installed the rest of the selected ...

Re: too little room in 'Boot'

boot partition too small.? How big is your /boot partition? I am not sure what the install gives you. I do my own partitions, usually I give 3gb to /boot, 50gb to /root, 8gb for /swap, and the remainder to /home, on a Seagate 500gb sshd drive. Sorry for the stupid question but why would you make a ...

Reprogramming keys of my keyboard

I have an A4Tech G800V X7 keyboard which has only a Windows software to program the additional keys. If you Google for this keyboard, you'll see it has 15 G-keys and the Space key is rather short. So, in Windows I have programmed G12 and G13 to work as additional Space keys. I also programmed G16 to...

You guys are all aware VLC has an EQ as well?
Yes, we are. But even with custom settings that EQ in VLC the sound is like something we Bulgarians have an expression. That expression is "wooden sound". I don't know whether you can uderstand what that means but I can't explain it better. :lol:

Re: Migrate to Kubuntu 18.04

I have had almost 0 crashes with Kubuntu 18.04 on my machine. never had the log out screen crash, did you report a bug for it? "Almost" is the key word. So you did have crashes with Kubuntu 18.04. And no, I didn't report it. At the time I was just distro-hopping. One day with one distro, one day wi...

Re: What do you advanced users do to achieve great quality sounds in Linux Mint 18.3?

but it's an excellent music player That's an arguable statement. It depens on what you want from VLC. If you're a bass maniac with an audio system dedicated to deep bass, like me, VLC won't cut it. For that you'll need players like Audacious, AIMP or Winamp where you can set individually each frequ...

Re: New version of Linux Mint (Have you tried it, yet ?)

Well, I've just now installed 19, and I'm not having any issues. If anything, all I can say is that everything seems to be a LOT faster than 18.3, although my boot time is unchanged (just a few seconds to get to the log-in screen, and a couple seconds after that to the desktop. In that case you can...

Re: [suggestion] Replace Xed with Gedit

From looking at both apps, I disagree that Xed is 'too basic.' What is it missing? If you have a file that Gedit can read but Xed can't, that's worth raising as a bug report for Xed. If it were just one file, I'd be happy. But every single text-based file which is written in non-English language is...

Is that even possible? :o

The last time I installed Mint 18.3 on the SSD the startup time was 9744 ms. Now it shows 5 seconds. Is that even possible? I know my SSD is superfast but this looks like a magic, altough I don't believe in that. :lol: :shock: :shock: https://scontent-sof1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/35026487_1021372235...

Re: New version of Linux Mint (Have you tried it, yet ?)

The "live" version of 19 beta seems pretty nice. I haven't installed it, but I am thinking about doing so over the weekend. I just have some random stuff to back up first, but nothing that'll take more than, say, 15 minutes. The bugs will appear when you install it. The most annoying bug IMO is the...

What happened when you rt-clicked on the gedit listed in synaptic and selected "Mark for installation" and then hit "Apply"?
This happens normally as it should but when I click "apply" in order to install it, that message reading "the package doesn't exist" appears.

Re: [suggestion] Replace Xed with Gedit

It's pretty easy to install gedit I thought so too. Opened Synaptic and typed gedit. When I tried to install it, I got a message similar to "the package doesn't exist", despite it was in the list of found items, so I had to Google for it and install it manually. Besides, installing software (even o...

[suggestion] Replace Xed with Gedit

Here's another suggestion from me: replace Xed with Gedit in the default installation of Mint. Xed is too basic, incapable of anything. Can't read properly the encoding of a simple txt file, while Gedit doesn't need any settings regarding that. Frankly, I don't understand why would you make a XFCE t...

Re: What do you advanced users do to achieve great quality sounds in Linux Mint 18.3?

VLC is crap. It's good only to watch online TV with it. For a perfect audio quality I use Audacious set up to use the ALSA driver (or in the audio settings tab it's called Analog spacial 5.0 Output). Also, sometimes it's necessary to make a setting in Audacious to increase volume on-the-fly by a spe...

Re: Tried remove a file, but it says that the file doesnt exist

I've seen this problem. It's a bug in the window manager. You get that message because you have deleted the file but the window manager didn't refresh to reflect the change. For the moment the only way to refresh it, is to restart the system. Sometimes, but not always, restarting Cinnamon (the deskt...

Re: Canonical giving up on Ubuntu desktop.

No worries for that. Ubuntu is continuing, they're just using Gnome instead of their home-grown Unity as the desktop environment. Since Mint doesn't use either Gnome or Unity, this shouldn't have any effect on us. ;) Ah, good. For a moment there I thought we'd be deprived of this great green OS. Co...
