    Bluetooth Problem with LM 21.2

    I agree with what you have stated. I have a lot of time I put into LinuxMint with Virtual Machine Manager, which includes Win10 and a few Windows apps. The Window apps include over 20 years of research, which I am using to write a book. Furthermore, I will stay with LinuxMint even though...

    I dropped back to the initial kernel 5.15.0-91 when I first installed LinuxMint. It appears when I upgraded the kernel it did not change Bluetooth.

    Bluetooth Problem with LM 21.2

    Thanks for helping locate these files. I compared these files to the files listed in the Update Manager. It appears these files have been updated. Oh well, back to the drawing board. If I cannot find the solution, then I will not use Bluetooth for any of my devices. Perhaps in future releases...

    Bluetooth Problem with LM 21.2

    All my updates have been done. I don't remember seeing a Bluetooth update. One of the Bluetooth solutions that helped one individual was a kernel update. The update was to 6.2.0-34 from the current kernel version.

    All Linux at last

    Wendy-Lebanon, you are correct. Judd Vinet started the Arch Linux project in March 2002. Time has passed by so quickly. Digging back into time, I went through some of my books. How can I forget Slackware. I have tried out Debian but did settle for Arch and then progressed to LinuxMint. After...

    Bluetooth icon disappeared off the task bar and the Bluetooth Manager does not function at all. I have been working on this problem for a couple of days by searching the LinuxMint and Ubuntu forums. Tried various solutions that were offered from these forums but to no avail. I tried the...

    All Linux at last

    I have been using Linux (Arch Linux and LinuxMint) part-time since the late 1990s. I finally make a total switch to Linux two days ago. Win11 and OneDrive has been a big headache for me. I could not take it any more and finally made the switch to ALL Linux, which includes one desktop and laptop...

    Mint 21.3 beta is available for download

    My apologies for posting this message here, it does address the slow boot time. After being away from LinuxMint for 2 years, I returned. I am using 21.2. The boot time is s l o w. I suspect 21.3 beta is slow or slower. Any solution to the slow boot time on 21.2? I tried LMDE 6 on a virtual box...

    Linux Set up of Lenovo T480 laptop

    I decided to keep one laptop for Win10 and the LenovoT480 for Manjaro. No problems with the Lenovo T480 or Manjaro. To give Gramps a chance I loaded it on Manjaro and played around with it for a week. After the GEDCOM import to Gramps, it took me a while to clean up the database. The process is...
