Judging from mdadm-3.4 source code, it does not accept any other inputs. As for the near=2,far=1 output, that's the default and nothing changed but values =1 are simply no longer printed because that essentially means "no additional copy" (counting starts at 1). In case both near and far equal 1, it prints NO REDUNDANCY. However you're not actually able to ...

The problem is caused by VBoxGuestAdditions_5.0.18, I believe the graphics driver is broken in it. Try to install VBoxGuestAdditions_5.0.16, that works just fine.

The history is in ~/.local/share/recently-used.xbel but it is not sufficient to remove that file. If you do the Recent Files entry keeps on showing the files you accessed, and if you open a file with an application that creates an Recent Files entry, that and the old list of files will be written to that file again. What you want to do is make an alias or ...

You could boot it into single user mode (if you don't know how to do it, just Google it) then enter this command: mount -uw / (In some cases, this command varies from system to system, so you may have to try some other command to make the filesystem writeable.) Then type 'passwd' then type what you want 'the root password' to be (just make sure it's a ...

On Arch Linux, you could boot a live image of the OS, arch-chroot and then run passwd. Maybe you could do something similar on Linux Mint.

I had exactly the same problem. I prefer to use TWM as it is lean and light. The Linux Mint box is my home server, and rarely needs gui tools anyway. Nearly everything I do on it is command line stuff - lots of scripts running. Here is what I did: sudo apt-get install xterm edit ~/.vnc/xstartup to use xterm. #!/bin/sh exec /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc [ ...

I had a similar problem (with Xfce): I wanted mouse emulation not to expire. What worked: launch the script via autostart (like you do) put sleep 5s at the start of the script (increase "5s" if necessary) Rationale: if your script works when launched manually, it is not guilty. So the DE must be overriding your setting (typically it will apply its ...

Thanks to @EightBitTony, a simple pkill -e -HUP gvfsd-fuse did the trick. The phantom mount has now disappeared from Thunar. Consequently, gvfsd-fuse was smart enough to respawn: $ pgrep -lf gvfsd-fuse 2786 /usr/lib/gvfs//gvfsd-fuse -f /run/user/1000/gvfs

There is a log in your home dir called ~/.cinnamon/glass.log but it doesn't provide much information. Looking at this related article: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/14025722/how-to-debug-cinnamon-applet suggests that there is no logs (because they are outputting to screen) but you can use the Linux Mint debugger called Looking Glass/Melange. Right ...

The posters sound card was muted. He ran alsamixer, unmuted the mixer controls, and raised the levels. This got the card working. However, the card returned to muted on rebooting. The Alsa config should be saved and restored on rebooting. So this is an outstanding issue. NOTE: poster says he has no ~/.pulse. This should definitely be present. I enclose ...

Turns out that all I needed to do was change my Wireless Interface preference in Wicd (never had luck with standard Network Manager). Not exactly something I realized needed to be changed.

You can edit /etc/apt/sources.list manually. Find any lines contains ubuntu.security.com and replace it with your mirror. Note: it requires root privilege to edit that file

Why not put it in your .xinitrc? As @cylgalad already said, xmodmap works on a specific instance of X. Crontab doesn't know which $DISPLAY to use, worst yet at boot time there is no X started. As a rule of thumb, if you want to start any X client from crontab (e.g.I use zenity to remind me to read my gas meter etc.) you have to specify the DISPLAY variable ...

As far as I can tell from a quick Google search, this is a laptop that was released in 2006. That's a ten year old laptop! Frankly, I'm quite surprised it works at all. What you describe sounds like a hardware issue of some sort. You can try installing Windows to check if the problem also occurs there but the fact that it happens on two different (albeit ...

Your solution is not solving the problem, you have always to click refresh repeatedly. We can fix this issues with more elegant way. Choose "On Desktop" as Position Go to options -> Advanced -> Windows Change "transparency type" parameters to "copy". Voila, widget now will always stand on the desktop. Even if you hide all windows or do cmd/win + ...

In order for NAT to work, you need to have a protocol-specific helper module loaded. By default, you're only going to have ones for TCP and UDP loaded. That's why you're seeing your PPTP traffic (which is actually PPP over GRE) escaping without NAT. That module is nf_nat_proto_gre, at least as of Linux 4.4. A similar story applies to connection tracking ...

What is the first drive when you boot Linux Mint from USB and what is where your Windows is installed doesn't have to be the same. Your windows is far more likely to have been installed on /dev/sdb (an SDD?) and /dev/sda is indeed completely free. Check /dev/sdb if it has your Windows partitions you can just proceed with using (some) of the free space on ...

MATE Desktop Environment For me, it is Ctrl+Alt+D. You can find that via Preferences > Hardware > Keyboard and Shortcuts: Or start mate-keybinding-properties via console. Look for "Window Management" > "Hide all normal windows and set focus to the Desktop". You can change the shortcut there.

You could boot into you Mint install, install os-prober and then run sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg, this should make grub be able to automatically find any other OS that you have installed and update the grub configuration. Another way would be to manually edit your grub menu entries and add one pointing to your old Ubuntu install.

For the first time i solve this by loading into grub console (esc in time of system boot, then c) and type configfile (hd0,msdos6)/grub/grub.conf. After i'll take a look at grub.conf and would try to get a solution for how to put a 'load ubuntu' option string into initial grub2 loading screen.
