Guys, I'm having a hard time using Rhytimbox when I'm going to "Rip" music CD tracks on Rhytimbox. The following message appears to me:
"Error downloading track
Could not open resource for writing
I am using an External CD Driver via USB and my Acer Nitro 5 Laptop runs Linux Mint 19.3.
can anybody help me? Thank you in advance

Taking advantage of the post, I would like to take the opportunity to ask if there is like in Google-Chrome, a way to mirror my noteook screen on the LG webOS LJ5550 TV. Using Google-Chromecast, in Google-Chrome I have the option to "Cast". I was wondering if in Firefox there is the possibility for me to do this, It seems that there is an option called "Fire TV", but I was not able to find out if this is a physical device (like Google-Chromecast) or an application that is installed on TV or Notebook. I installed a fx_cast Extension that after a few re-installs it worked properly and make me able to mirror the Firefox screen on the TV screen. But I would like to mirror the laptop screen in any situations.

I entered the Linux Mint 19.3 Driver Manager and tried the Driver xserver-xorg-video-nouveau (because browse google-chrome was not working properly. It was closing abruptly). He accepted the exchange and after restarting notebook it booted normally, but the laptop's webcam did not work longer. When I tried to go back to the proprietary Driver, I opened again the Driver Manager, but this time it came back empty with no option of drivers to choose.
How could I fix this? The driver that was installed is Nvidia 435,21-0ubuntu0. 18.04.2. My notebook model is the Acer Nitro 5 AN515-52-5771 MFG Date:1910, 15.6", Intel Core i5 - 8300H. The Video Card is NVIDIA Corporation: GP107M [GeForce GTX 1050 Mobile].
Before to exchange driver to nouveau:
After to exchange:

Ok, I liked Keith's answer and I'm also more relieved when Rich says that Firefox is a secure browser in order to access internet-bank. Therefore, as long as Google support does not solve the problem, I will start using Firefox as a browser to access my account at Banco do Brasil.

1) I Installed via the google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb file downloaded from the Google website;
2) Because I bought the notebook with graphics cards to have a better screen resolution and I thought that Linux Mint would work well with the proprietary drivers, which would allow me a better screen resolution. But apparently, I spent extra money for nothing;
3) The drivers came with Linux Mint 19.3. I didn't install the Operating System. I paid a qualified technician to do the installation for me, since the boot was via UEFI and I was not getting it installed;
4) The problem occurred with the same kernell that was working before I boot with the proprietary drivers. I wonder  that the problem does not happen with Firefox browser which is working perfectly. It is a pity because I was using the Fifefox Browser to browse the various sites and using google-chrome exclusively for me to access my current account at Banco do Brasil;
5) I would like to post here the messages that are returned when I start google-chrome via console, but the messages are sparse and would take up a lot of space to be posted here;
6) I am also wondering that a log file is not created in /var/log even if I start google-chrome with the command: "google-chrome-stable --enable-logging = stderr --v = 1";
7) I also tried to create an output file using the command "google-chrome-stable> saida.txt" and it is created but is empty.
8) How do I boot without using proprietary drivers (boot without UEFI I imagine)?;
9) Or I have to accept to use Firefox even to access my Banco do Brasil account for a while until a solution appears, even why I already posted this problem in the Google community.

Guys, I installed Google-Chrome in my notebook and while I was not booting with proprietary drivers, Google-Chrome was working fine. After I chose to use the proprietary drivers from Nvidia (Nvidia Performance Mode) or Intel (Intel Power Saving), Google-Chrome suddenly blinks the screen and then closes abruptly. This does not happen with Firefox browser. Would someone have a suggestion to offer me?

Ok, very thanks. It worked. I choose 16.0 pt.

Hi Guys,
I am 70 years old and my eyes are not so good as before. The letters in my Linux Mint 19.3 running in my notebook Acer Nitro 5 is too smal. I wish I could see it as larger letters. How could I get it?

General Help & Advice / Changing the Ownner of a Partition
« on: January 09, 2020, 12:38:14 am »
Guys, I installed Linux Mint 19.2 in my laptop and when installing, as the hard drive was 1tb, I split it in two partitions and created it in addition to the /  /home and swap partitions, and created a /windows partition (fat 32). It turns out that the partition owner is root and I would like to create directories in this partition for /home users. I tried via console, as root user, changing the /windows partition group to the user group. But it did not permitted. The group name of this /windows partition is plugdev. I tried the command chmod 777 /windows but it didn't work out also. it left rwx for the owner and the group (plugdev), but did not authorize anything for "others"; Could someone help me how to change the group of this partition /windows?
May I simply delete this /windows partition using "gparted" without changing anything in /etc/fstab? What should I change there to delete /windows?
I bag your pardon for my poor English, but my native language is Portuguese. Thanks in advance.

Sorry, I didn't find where to edit the post. So I translate it now to English:

When I turn on the computer and boot it, xscreensaver does not start. Then I start it via GUI and I get the following message:
It looks like the xscreensaver daemon is not running on monitor ".0". Launch it now?

Then if I answer OK it starts and works properly until the next boot.
How could I fix this issue?

Quando eu ligo o computador e dou o boot o xscreensaver não inicia. Daí eu inicio ele via interface gráfica e eu recebo a seguinte mensagem:
Parece que o daemon do xscreensaver não está sendo executado no monitor ".0". Lançá-lo agora?

Aí se eu respondo OK ele inicia e funciona normalmente até o próximo boot.
Como eu poderia corrigir isto?

I received this message:

root@debian-nogueira:/home/nogueira# /usr/sbin/gparted
Unit tmp.mount does not exist, proceeding anyway.

And gparted didn't openned.

I already done twice the install of Debian 10.0 in my Laptop Dell Inspiron 1545 and I choose Gnome (under Xorg, Gnome Weyland and Mate). I install it using the Netinstall CD disk. In the two cases, I can't use gparted. I installed it but when I start it, I type the root password but the app doesn't open. Even in Mate graphics manager.
I already received the following message when I tryed to format an usb pendrive:
"Error synchronizing after initial wipe: timed out waiting for object (udisks-error-quark, 0)"
Another error that I found is that when I start an app "overgrive", it is not showed me that the app is running in the notifying panel.
I beg your pardon for my poor English but my native language is Portuguese.
I hope you may help me.
