    Is there any way to control how Linux uses the second monitor?

    There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to Linux's use of the second monitor. My second monitor is used for monitoring my ip cams via browser and for nothing else. I was using Opera but an update broke it so it only opens on the primary monitor. So in the garbage it went. Most all of the...

    Logitech K800 keyboard stopped working when I plugged in my new M510 mouse

    I think it tried to pair with the unified transceiver and failed and now it doesn't work at all. Google is useless and down right stupid when trying to find any info on this problem. I tried the K800 on another computer using the original transceiver and nothing. And of course I replaced the...

    Got a couple of questions. 1. How hard / time consuming is it to get it installed and properly configured? 2. Will it do everything Ubuntu and it's variants will? 3. Any HW compatibility issues? OK, that was 3 questions, sorry. TIA :)

    Does Windows copy files in any particular order?

    Had to start and abort a copy operation 4 times due to my stupidity and each time it started with a different file. The last time I watched it and it appeared to be more or less copying in alphabetic order ever tho it didn't start with the first file. But it actually didn't, it skipped around...

    Is modular cabling universal?

    Just picked up a modular 850w Seasonic and it's missing most of the cables. I have enough spares to replace them but I don't know which PSU's the spares came with. Will I let the magic smoke out if I assume they're all the same? TIA :)

    Just discovered "Vibrance" in X Server settings

    What a difference it makes. Turned my old washed out display into a new display with eye popping colors. Never went beyond basic setup of my 2 monitors in X Server before but decided to look a little deeper. Glad I did. :)

    Anyone ever replace a HD SAS connector ?

    Came upon a 6TB 12G SAS Dell branded HGST HD with a broken power connector. Only the plastic part is broken. I'm using an SAS to SATA connector at present. This works because the pins themselves are intact and required just a little straightening to go into connector. The drive itself is fine...

    Have a security issue with Vivaldi

    I need to connect to ipmi on a Supermicro server. Vivaldi will not allow me to connect via http, is automatically changes it to https. It won't save the password and I assume it's because it connects via https. I've searched and can't find any security settings at all. Security is a total non...

    I thought a kernel update required a reboot

    Mint Cinnamon 20.2. Just had a kernel update come down the tubes and after the install it said nothing about a reboot required. Never seen this before. I went ahead and rebooted for S&G but still can't help wondering why this one was different. :confused:

    Updates, do I need them all?

    I usually install updates as they arrive without giving them any thought but the latest one has me questioning - I don't have a modem attached to or installed in this box. If they're referring to a cable modem, it's attached to my PFSense box. Do I really need this and if not, how can I get...

    What's a good NAS software?

    I'm done with FreeNAS/TrueNAS, it/they suck unwashed ass. As much as I want zfs, it just isn't worth the grief. I need something functional and user friendly enough to be workable, not some geeky BS that only club members can decipher. TIA

    TrueNAS access denied

    TrueNAS sucks. What a steaming pile of garbage. It's a NAS OS that supposed to allow access to data stored on it but it does nothing of the sort. "ACCESS DENIED" Is all I get when I try to copy files to the share. Absolutely nothing I do gets me anything but "ACCESS DENIED". Why is sharing...

    How does Linux decide if a drive is removable?

    Redid my box a while back. It contains 2 1.9TB SSD's. Linux was installed on one of them and the second is a data drive. The second drive was marked as removable which is stupid as shit.

    I've recently (this year) started to update my Linux install when the updates become available, running Timeshift first of course. I haven't run into any issues...... yet.
