A workaround for the problem is to disable any action which is triggered by closing the lid. This can usually be set in the power options in your system settings interface. You also need to make sure that the display automatically dims while idle, and that the computer does not auto-suspend after a certain period of time. On modern computers (especially ...

This thread might be old but I've just stumbled upon dual monitors and panels. Using Mint 17.2 and cinnamon. You can Modify-->copy applet configuration on your main panel, and then paste it on your secondary monitor/panel. Some of the applets cannot work on both so mint will skip them. Works like a charm right now for me.

VirtualBox automatically captures keyboard input to give a smoother experience. So when you press alt + tab it shifts to VirtualBox and then the next alt + tab will happen within the VM. Here is your solution (Source): VirtualBox has a checkbox called "Auto Capture Keyboard" (> File > Preferences > Input). Turn it off. Now you will have to click inside ...

You must also use the update-rc.d command. There is the remove option to remove it from the boot sequence. The script will remain in the init.d directory and you are still able to start and stop them with the service command.

I had the same kind of issue on a dell latitude E7450. I simply ran sudo apt-get install grub sudo apt-get autoremove from a standard shell and that did the trick.

Make sure your "/boot/grub/grub.cfg" lists the correct VG and LV. In my case, the VG is named "ssd_vg" and the LV is named "root_lv", so the grub.cfg file needs to reference "/dev/mapper/ssd_vg-root_lv" (note use of slashes and dashes!).

I've found a solution. It turned out that it is a setting that can be changed with xrandr. To get back the correct aspect ratio in all modes, the following line works: xrandr --output DVI-I-1 --set 'scaling mode' None Here DVI-I-1 is the DVI port my monitor is connected to; that's easily found out by calling xrandr without options. In order to have this ...

The fix is to prepend sudo to the command. That's the way Mint works. If you don't start with sudo, it will ask you for root privileges, and the only way it can get those is to have you put in the root password. You can also run something like sudo bash once and the run all your root commands inside that shell, but I really don't recommend doing so. It's a ...

Here's what I learned and how I resolved this seemingly common problem of GEM_HOME and GEM_PATH environment variables not set error. Background RVM install is supposed to create GEM_HOME and GEM_PATH env vars for each RVM that is setup and it does that. But there's a bug apparently such that in some cases the env vars are only set temporarily, and to set ...

Linux VT console devices are dynamically allocated. They appear when they are opened by any process, just echo >/dev/tty63 will do that. You might be interested in utilities like openvt / deallocvt / chvt. Missing /dev/vcs7 is probably because Xorg session is using /dev/tty7 in graphics mode. Xorg uses the first unused console device found beginning ...

On reboot, it gets it's Mint back. "IIRC mintsystem & ubuntu-system-adjustments will take care of these files on the next boot anyway, filling them with the correct Mint info." Ref: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=175398

Have a look at the routing table of the 'Physical' PC and see how traffic to these networks are routed. If that host is only 'equipped' with a default route you need to use that address to add your static routes on the guest. For example, the 'physical' host has only a static route of 145.17.1.1: route add -net 145.17.0.0/16 gw 145.17.1.1 route add -net ...

From lsusb output, 148f:7601, it should be a MT7601U chip not MT7610U. Please node, Mediatek official site seem swap the link between them, but I'm not very sure about this.

The only working solution I found is to rid of mdm. There are other display managers like nodm, gdm, lightdm that you can install and configure them to autologin as root. There is also a issue about it on GitHub which seems to be closed.

By default, the packages which you install using apt-get are the latest stable versions which are selected by the distribution developer team. It's simple: The package file with specified version is placed on the selected repository. If you want to install the latest version, If other repository provided you can add it to your repo list.. As you also ...

I would recommend doing as you said, extract the audio, use Audacity or something similar to "cuff" the audio, then use kdenlive or a similar video editor to re-add the audio. Their are multiple methods for censoring words in Audacity. - First, the method you specified, you can simply reverse the audio. - You can select the audio, mute it with Generate > ...

Well, you could use win32 Disk Imager utility to burn the iso which i am sure will work for you but if it doesn't work, you could use rufus and try to use different partition schemes till you get the right one since you can't determine

In the left panel, select the “Status” filter, and choose the “Installed (upgradable)” list. You can select all packages in a view by clicking the first package, scrolling to the last package and shift-clicking it. Or with the keyboard, press Home then Shift+End. Then right-click or bring up the “Package” menu and select “Unmark” or “Mark for Upgrade”. You ...

Thanks to stéphane-chazelas, one possible answer is to add --bind-interfaces. I overlooked that option from limiting myself to reading the command line help: # dnsmasq --help | grep bind-interfaces -z, --bind-interfaces Bind only to interfaces in use. I didn't have the reflex to double check with the man page. That help still is ...

Why not just add this echo into ~/.bashrc or ~/.bash_profile ? More info at An Explanation of .bashrc and .bash_profile Both the ~/.bashrc and ~/.bash_profile are scripts that might be executed when bash is invoked. The ~/.bashrc file gets executed when you run bash using an interactive shell that is not a login shell. The ~/.bash_profile only gets ...

You are confusing the function of echo. echo will print to the standard output file descriptor. If you already have a terminal open, that terminal is usually the standard output of the commands/scripts you run within it. By itself, echo will not open a terminal. If you want to display a message on startup, a more "graphical" way would be to use something ...

Stripping is supposed to be safe, all it does is remove symbols from binaries, and they are only needed for debugging. So it should be safe to strip everything. In most Linux distributions (Mint included), binaries and libraries are stripped by default, and symbols are made available separately in debug packages. A binary or library which is not stripped ...

A method to skip importing would be to convert the file to a format that can be read without importing - so for instance: soffice --headless --convert-to ods --outdir /tmp tblIssues.csv soffice --view /tmp/tblIssues.ods rm /tmp/tblIssues.ods This converts the file tblIssues.csv to a ODS spreadsheet, saves it to /tmp and opens it in Libreoffice. Once it ...

you can determine the device attached to this root port with the command lspci -v -s 3.0 | grep Bus: you should see a line something like this: Bus: primary=00, secondary=04, subordinate=04, sec-latency=0 the secondary and subordinate are often the same, so you could then use the command lspci -s 4:0 to see what devices are on that bus. for my ...

Well, you asked if that is possible, then yes, it is, just sadly not in Cinnamon (as far as I know). But there is a KDE widget like that for KDE4. If you don't want to switch to KDE, there is still an option: a drop down terminal. I'd prefer Tilda, which is very lightweight, beautiful and customizable. You can easily install it with sudo apt-get install ...

Wine doesn't support USB yet, and it also doesn't support installing device drivers. So no, you can't use it to install Logitech drivers for Windows on Linux. On Linux systems most device drivers are already provided by the kernel, and nothing needs to be installed. If you're having trouble using your devices on Linux you can ask a new question with the ...

Since no one has come up with anything (and indeed, I can't find anything myself), I assume the answer to this question is "No, you can't do it". Thus I opened an issue on cinnamon github requesting this as a feature. Since I've had no response there either, I'm looking into implementing it myself. In examining the cinnamon code base, it looks like the ...

Obviously my web server doesn't have permission to create directories - and probably not to create files - in public_html or its subdirectories (like some directories under ~/public_html/wordpress).
