Linux Mint Ambassadors tumblr

Ambassadors are Linux Mint users who communicate with their friends about the advantages of using Linux Mint. This project is already working on some other Linux distributions and has been very effective in order to make known Linux distributions. This project is also very functional in Free Software Events and Universities, where local ambassadors support FOSS events in their communities. This work is voluntary and driven by the desire to make free software more and more encouraged. (2012-present) — https://linuxmintambassadors.tumblr.com/
  • Is the open source community too reliant on Github? (2021/11/28 00:31)
    Is the open source community too reliant on Github?:

    Currently, Github has been completely down for about an hour.

    Many open source projects use it for their development, and store issues, docs, PRs, and more all without it in git. More and more projects rely on the closed source commercial service owned by Microsoft.

    Is this a serious problem for the future?

    Note: I am not implying malificent intentions by Github, but instead just an issue which results in a prolonged outage or loss of git repos that aren’t backed up personally, as well as issues, PRs, wikis, and more.

    Edit: fix link

    Edit: Github is back

    Ethernent:

    Installed Linux Mint, the Ethernet won’t connect at all, Ubuntu picked up my network right away, anyway to fix this? Also for WIFI I have a USB Wifi and bluetooth antenna.

  • f.lux on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS no longer working (2021/11/27 23:59)
    f.lux on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS no longer working:

    I don’t know what happened but quite recently the program f.lux as a blue light filter is no longer making my screen orange. The program still launches and successfully displays the appindicator in the top bar but it isn’t doing anything.

    I use Ubuntu 20.04.3 and my Laptop Display. It worked before and I don’t have any Nvidia cards in my Laptop.

    Edit: It might be because I’m using Wayland now but I’m not sure.

  • Fingerprint sensor on Lenovo IdeaPad 14ALC05 (2021/11/27 23:59)
    Fingerprint sensor on Lenovo IdeaPad 14ALC05:

    So…I really wanna move from Windows to Linux but I just got so used to fingerprint sensor on my laptop. From what I found out it uses Goodix fingerprint sensor but from all my experiments I just couldn’t make it work. I wanna use some Debian-based distro…probably Ubuntu because I really like GNOME and it seems very friendly to use to me. I installed the distro and from fprint site it says “The GNOME desktop supports fingerprint management through its Users Settings panel. Most Linux distributions support fingerprint login through fprintd.” but I’m too stupid and unexperienced to make it work :(

    Edit: on some Dell site I found out that there is Linux driver for Goodix fingerprint

  • What Do You Expect From KDE Plasma 6.0? (2021/11/27 23:31)
    What Do You Expect From KDE Plasma 6.0?:

    With Qt 6.0 having being released for quite a while now, the KDE world is inching close to another big transition..

    Plasma 6.0 and the whole KDE suite based on Qt6.

    What do you expect from this transition? Will it be smooth like from 4.x to 5.x, or painful like KDE 3 to 4?

    This is the second major KDE transition I’ll see in my 12 years using Linux, so I am kind of excited.

  • Running btrfs on LVM (2021/11/27 23:31)
    Running btrfs on LVM:

    I know this isn’t done that often, as btrfs is intended to offer a lot of the same functions as LVM.

    Are there any issues though if you do it, in terms of performance problems, corruption, etc?

    I’m interested as for example you can cache an LVM volume with an SSD without it changing the volume device name. Also, although it’d seem pointless to use LVM snapshots on a btrfs volume, I saw something saying this is unsafe - is that really true?

  • Need help with disabling RST to install Linux Mint (2021/11/27 22:59)
    Need help with disabling RST to install Linux Mint:

    Hey guys. I am finally switching to Linux on an older computer (HP Pavilion 15 cs). The hard drive died on me a few days ago and now that I have a new ssd installed I wanted to put Linux mint on it. The live boot works fine but when I go to install it, the installer tells me I have RST enabled and I need to disable it. The problem is I don’t have an option on the bios to disable it and I don’t have Windows on it to do command prompt things.

    I could really use some help with disabling it.

  • Can I start a graphical program from ssh? (2021/11/27 22:59)
    Can I start a graphical program from ssh?:

    What I really want is to give my NAS sever (Ubuntu PC) a HDMI cable to my television - and then be able to ssh into it and start up a video. Can I do that?

    A VNC connection might work. But I would prefer if only the video is shown on screen (i.e. not me using the terminal). Also I would prefer to ssh in, with just a terminal. And perhaps even have it start on something (CGI-bin web-server, IoT-devices, cron-job, …, so a way to do it from command line would be preferred).

    conflicting packages:

    I have a lot of conflicting packages, mostly elfutils-libelf* and I can’t update my system because of that. Is there a way to remove them / resolve the issue? I am on Fedora 35. If you need additional information I am happy to provide it, I just didn’t want to dump heaps of useless crap here. Thanks a lot!

    Creating a .desktop file for a Wine application?:

    How can I make a .desktop application, with an icon, for a Wine application? Programs installed with Wine do it for me but non-installable programs don’t, and I don’t understand the .desktop files Wine generates, how they work, or how the seemingly random code for the icon works fine.

  • Looking for a wireless laser presenter compatible with Linux and LibreOffice (2021/11/27 22:31)
    Looking for a wireless laser presenter compatible with Linux and LibreOffice:

    I am looking for a wireless laser presenter compatible with Linux and LibreOffice.
    Have the feeling that such a device just mimics pressing keys on a keyboard, so any presenter should probably work.

    However, I would greatly appreciate it if some of you could share your experience with using presenters on Linux with LibreOffice.

    The ones from Logitech are most likely a no-go as these heavily depend on their Windows software.

  • Struggling to mount Samba share (2021/11/27 20:59)
    Struggling to mount Samba share:

    I’ve got 2 machines (both VMs in this case but the share will be used on a couple other machines): Ubuntu Server 20.04.3 LTS and Mint 20.2.

    The server has Samba running but it is refusing to mount on the Mint machine. I’m mounting as normal with sudo mount //192.168.0.150/public /mnt/shared try to mount it I’m getting an error saying mount error(2): No such file or directory.

    This would make me think that I’m using the wrong name for the share but looking in /etc/samba/smb.conf I have called it public, and it allows guest so won’t need a password. Folder has full rwx and is set to nogroups and noowners. I’ve tried both public and shared_serv which is the direct path on the server.

    Firewall is allowing Samba through fine, and the error doesn’t look like it’s failing to communicate mine you.

    Below is the bit I’ve added to smb.conf for the new folder:

    [public] path = /shared_serv browsable = yes writable = yes guest ok = yes read only = no force user = nobody

  • Is there a way to have a progress bar or window when copying and pasting file on Ubuntu 20.04? (2021/11/27 20:59)
    Is there a way to have a progress bar or window when copying and pasting file on Ubuntu 20.04?:

    I recently installed Ubuntu on my old laptop just to learn how to use it and familiarize myself with the OS, I realized immediately that the system gives me no indication that I’m copying or pasting something like Windows does, no progression either.

    So is there a way to install an extension, or do some magic with terminal to enable a feature like that?

  • How do I get back to bios (to boot from USB)? (2021/11/27 20:59)
    How do I get back to bios (to boot from USB)?:

    I install Ubuntu. But something went wrong. I only have 640 x 480 screen resolution. It did work fine on the USB stick. Strange. Anyway. What is even worse, I can’t get to the BIOS anymore. I can’t boot from USB. Only from the SSD with the faulty Ubuntu install.

    How do I get into bios?

    I have tried

     sudo systemctl reboot --firmware-setup 

    But it says

    Cannot indicate to EFI to boot into setup mode: Firmware does not support boot into firmware 

    I have tried pressing F12. That didn’t help either.

  • Should I get a System76 Oryx Pro or a Juno Neptune 15" v3? (2021/11/27 20:31)
    Should I get a System76 Oryx Pro or a Juno Neptune 15" v3?:

    I’m new to linux and want to buy from a linux only supplier and support open source stuff more. I recently ordered a Mac book pro with the M1 Max chip but am thinking of just returning it in place of a Linux laptop. Looking at the price and what comes with each laptop they look almost identical but the price is much cheaper for the Neptune. The neptune 15" also has 240hz refresh rate vs the oryx pro only has 144hz. But the Oryx comes with Pop OS. Is there a reason I should by the Oryx over the Neptune?
