  Upgrade from Linux Mint 18.3 to the latest (20.1)
Posted by: jhguynn - 01-23-2021, 06:31 PM - Forum: Mint - Replies (1)

Linux Mint 18.3 is set to be deprecated in April 2021, so I need to make a move. I've considered making the leap to ARCH, but for now I want to explore the possibility of an in-place upgrade to 20.1. Is this possible, i.e. making an in-place upgrade? I'd like to avoid the hassle of a clean install, since I have a lot of software installed that I want to keep without a re-install. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

  Ubuntu Wayland issues
Posted by: elsandosgrande - 01-20-2021, 12:27 PM - Forum: Ubuntu - Replies (4)

So, I’ve been having issues with Wayland on Ubuntu Groovy since about mid-December 2020. After some update was installed, most graphical applications suddenly stopped opening in the Wayland session of GNOME. GNOME applications, like GNOME Calendar and GNOME Clocks, open just fine, I can even use the terminal without any issues, but trying to open Firefox, Thunderbird, and so on simply leads to them seemingly running running in the background, but never appearing on screen. No matter for how long they remain like that, they will not terminate on their own with some sort of error. There are also no warnings to be found of any kind in `journalctl`, much less errors. I’ve tried to figure out what could be the issue, but I’m thoroughly stumped, as it doesn’t matter whether the applications are running natively on Wayland or are running on XWayland. The only thing that matters is that they are not GNOME applications. Hell, even extensions fail to run! Ubuntu Dock runs, but Weather and the like don’t. Well… the others don’t, but Weather just looks broken, like it’s perpetually trying to load weather data and failing. Everything works fine in the X11 session for me and one of my friends who also has Ubuntu Groovy reports no issues with the Wayland session on his laptop.

I was hoping that some later update would come to save the day soon enough, but here we are…

Post Scriptum

As I have already explained here, my laptop is an i5 Dell Inspiron and the NVIDIA dGPU is not the issue. There are no graphical issues here. I mean, even essentially non-graphical things fail to run properly (GNOME extensions).

Thank you in advance and have a nice day!

  Debian 10 Microphone Issue
Posted by: Jeremiah - 01-04-2021, 09:21 PM - Forum: GNU/Linux, Unix, BASH and More - No Replies

I recently decided to try out Debian on my laptop, coming from Kubuntu. I have everything working fine, except the built-in mic. The laptop is a Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E530, and I couldn't find the microphone on Lenovo's website, but running the arecord -l command gave me these results:

**** List of CAPTURE Hardware Devices ****
card 0: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 0: CX20590 Analog [CX20590 Analog]
  Subdevices: 0/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

If I look at pavucontrol, the microphone is listed there and works, but in every program I tested (Chromium, Audacity), I could access it. In Audacity my only options give me the sound coming out of the Twitch Live Stream I was listening to in the background, not from the microphone. I looked at alsamixer and made sure the microphone's gain was turned up all the way, and I am still having these issues. I have confirmed that the pulseaudio deamon is running.

This issue only affects the built in microphone, the speakers, my headphones, and an external microphone work fine. I am only having issues with the internal microphone, which worked in Ubuntu before I installed Debian. I think it may be an issue with pulse or alsa, but I know little about either of these, so I don't know how to troubleshoot these to find out what the issue is and how to fix it. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

  Which is better? EFI or Legacy?
Posted by: NewbieForever - 12-27-2020, 02:26 AM - Forum: Mint - Replies (2)

I just recently discovered that there is a "Bug" in the Ubuntu installer and it effects Linux Mint 20.

You can see what my experience has been here:
LM20 XFCE - Why did the installer create two fat32 bit partitions?

I'm trying to decide if I want to scrap my install and re install or just leave it as it is.  I don't know which is best to do.  Install EFI or Install Legacy.  It seems that when you install Legacy the installer gets confused and sets EFI partitions anyways.  The only way to stop this from happening is to manually partition and then install into root.  That's ok with me.  Except I spent 5 hours putting the install together before I learned what happened.  I assume that if I were to boot into Linux Mint 20 in EFI mode then it would automatically install in EFI mode, thereby partitioning correctly for EFI.  As you can tell I don't have any experience with EFI.  I always set this computer up as Legacy.  Which is better?  EFI or Legacy?

Have you given any thoughts on what you will be switching to with the loss of Cent OS ?

  WiFi wont connect if username required
Posted by: Shockme - 12-15-2020, 09:23 PM - Forum: Mint - Replies (1)

I'm running linux mint 20 on my Dell Inspiron 7300 laptop. My problem is I cannot connect to any network requiring username/password credentials, most bothersome at my workplace. I have no problem connecting to my home network which requires only a password, nor to my iphone used as a hotspot.
in attempting to connect, the laptop detects the network I need, and requests username/password, but then fails to establish a connection.
My hunch is that I am not providing the correct security and/or authentication protocols to the wifi manager, although I think I've tried nearly every combination and no luck.
I have no problem connecting to the same networks with my iphone or windows laptop using the same credentials.
Tech support at my workplace is unwilling to help as they "do not support linux OS".
Any help would be much appreciated- are there log messages that might tell me what's failing? Is there any way I can look query from my connected laptop what the correct protocol settings are?

Below is the network portion of running inxi -Fxz on my linux laptop.

  Device-1: Intel Wireless-AC 9462 driver: iwlwifi v: kernel port: 4000
  bus ID: 00:14.3
  IF: wlp0s20f3 state: up mac: <filter>

Thank you in advance.
