    Physical Disk Partition Mounts Problematic in Home Folder.

    Ok, I have made progress but not quite there yet... and the progress I have made was done by sort of poking around rather than with an approached that I knew exactly what I was testing, meaning I can't explain everything I did, only that I realised. I set up the partitions with the "disks"...

    Physical Disk Partition Mounts Problematic in Home Folder.

    I've "played" around with partitions to troubleshoot this problem. I use "play" cautiously since I don't really want to be playing around with partitions that much. Here's a few findings of interest: Mounting anything in a directory directly in root works fine (no problems with the timeshift...

    Physical Disk Partition Mounts Problematic in Home Folder.

    Hello guys. Recently I set up multiple partitions on a 2nd physical drive and mounted them within my home folder. I assumed it had just worked, but I've now noticed it has not. After a bit of poking around I have made progress (in a way) but am stumped, moreover I've tried searching for this...

    xp-pen tablette and linux drivers ?

    Indeed. I have the Artist 16 and the pen works out-the-box. It's one of the remaining 10 XP-Pen products that don't yet have a Linux driver (by the last time I checked) but I only need to run one terminal command to map it to the tablet monitor and I'm sorted. They've done great work releasing...

    Multiple Link Target Change

    Hey guys. I've come to the obvious post-realisation with my backups of personal files that any link file within my home folder breaks if I import them to a linux user with a different username, and thus home directory name. My first attempt at Linux I put the user as "owner", thus the home...

    Tablet PC: Pen-Monitor & Remote Mapping, WINE Pen Pressure & More <partially solved>

    Hey Wiz I've already spend the most part of yesterday reinstalling both OSes (Windows 10 took way longer actually, yikes). Everything is in order again and I deliberately gave a lot of space to root for the mint install: 50GB (actually, I gave a lot of space to all partitions). I'd rather have...

    Tablet PC: Pen-Monitor & Remote Mapping, WINE Pen Pressure & More <partially solved>

    I've got an update on my situation, and overall, I consider this update good news. I have spent the rest of February solely on Linux using MyPaint no problem. During that time I only tried and played two games on steam: Hearts of Iron IV and Day of the Tentacle. They worked flawlessly. Tonight...

    Tablet PC: Pen-Monitor & Remote Mapping, WINE Pen Pressure & More <partially solved>

    Hey Wiz. I have looked at Linux alternatives and only tried GIMP and Krita so far. Neither a go. I didn't try MyPaint for some reason (there was a reason...). Well since I'm currently stuck here I decided to give MyPaint a go today. The UI is good. There is only 2 elements in Medibang I like...

    Tablet PC: Pen-Monitor & Remote Mapping, WINE Pen Pressure & More <partially solved>

    Hello for another post. Perhaps I'm jumping the gun to share this information as I have no idea what to do with it; it's more of an "well, this is interesting" sort of thing. I attempted both Medibang and FireAlpaca through WINE again. What's different this time? Well, I noticed something...

    Tablet PC: Pen-Monitor & Remote Mapping, WINE Pen Pressure & More <partially solved>

    I do declare, that out of all the problems I have right now in Linux Mint, I have fixed all of them that are in my hands. The only thing left in my control to do is the boot scripts for the solutions that only last for the session. But I'm fine to tolerate that for now. The problems outwith my...

    Tablet PC: Pen-Monitor & Remote Mapping, WINE Pen Pressure & More <partially solved>

    Bad news Linuxers (uh, that probably isn't a word). I do a warm up before I actually do anything art-related. This warm up is things like curves, straight lines, and basic stuff like that in my art programme. One way I like to do this is to attempt as straight as possible vertical and...

    Tablet PC: Pen-Monitor & Remote Mapping, WINE Pen Pressure & More <partially solved>

    Whoa Nelly do I have an update. As of yet, I have made no concessions with the programmes I use with switching to Linux. Suitable replacements are what I've been going after. The recent activity of this thread got me thinking about it again. I decided to give Krita a go again this time treating...

    Tablet PC: Pen-Monitor & Remote Mapping, WINE Pen Pressure & More <partially solved>

    Hey mrvldmr, I'm glad to see someone else out there in the world wishes for more choice of art programs in Linux :) It's curious that both our pen pressures work in native linux programs, yet you say it worked through wine at some point but not anymore. Perhaps it is worth to describe this on...

    Tablet PC: Pen-Monitor & Remote Mapping, WINE Pen Pressure & More <partially solved>

    Not much has changed in the rest of 2019 to get me closer to being to use linux as my main system. One thing to note is XP-Pen has continued to work on linux drivers for their tablets. The latest linux driver releases for a lot of their products was on 19 Dec 2019. On that day a ton of linux...

    Tablet PC: Pen-Monitor & Remote Mapping, WINE Pen Pressure & More <partially solved>

    Hello again! Been a while, hasn't it? I haven't given up on switching to Linux, I've just had to go back to windows and continue my work over spending more time on what OS I do my work on. I'd also love to spend the same amount of time daily as I did while I kept this thread active; but alas...

    Belated Introduction

    Call me blind, but I didn't realise this was a thing. I've noticed now and here's my intro. From Scotland, and in my 20s. The profiles I've clicked on so far all say they're 50+ in age, so that makes me feel young. Currently switching to Linux Mint MATE from Windows 10. I think we all know how...

    Tablet PC: Pen-Monitor & Remote Mapping, WINE Pen Pressure & More <partially solved>

    I have found this tutorial: https://ictsolved.github.io/remap-key-in-linux The method 2 within it is the same method as the first tutorial I am using for the remote remapping. While there are several differences, one of note is the directories between them are different, and both are different...

    Tablet PC: Pen-Monitor & Remote Mapping, WINE Pen Pressure & More <partially solved>

    Overscan. The term for what the TV is doing is overscan. As to the scripting: does what I'm doing have to be in this xinitrc file? If I'm also going to want a start-up script for all these changes I want permanent (I've put that part on hold until I've solved everything else at least for...

    In searching I've come across this command: Where adding decimal fractions lowers the scale, however the main monitor starts to "bleed" onto the TV rather than make a black border around the TV output.
