General Help & Advice / Re: Google-Chrome blinks and after that closes abruptly.
« Last Post by Keith on March 30, 2020, 10:00:46 pm »
I'm a bit out of my depth with this one but it seems to me that as Firefox must be using the same drivers as Google-Chrome, and FF is working OK, then the problem lies with Google-Chrome, not your system. 

My limited experience of Google-Chrome has not been a happy one.

Is there a particular reason why you don't want to use FF for accessing your bank account?

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.

No, it is rotatable and obviously I can alter the display. But the whole point of portrait mode is for word-processing, so a word-processor which is a pain to use in that mode (and which seems to have been designed for wide-screen) strikes me as stupid. A lot of today's design seems to divorced from practicality, like the theme with ultra-narrow sliders that I mentioned. Luckily, with Linux there's always a choice — long live Apache Open Office!

General Help & Advice / Re: Bash script caused system program problem [solved]

Just had a thought that might help. 

If your system was objecting to your script at start-up then you may well have placed the script in amongst system files, where it ought not to be. 
If this is the case, I recommend creating a sub-directory in your home directory and adding that sub-directory to your PATH variable.  This is all very easy, so let me know when you are ready to have another go.

I'm the only woman on here and I've never felt unwelcome amongst all you clever computer guys even though I have asked some daft questions on here over the years!

You are not unwelcome Melissa. Why would you be? Only stupid men are misogynists, and by definition, Linux users aren't stupid...

By the way, I've asked some daft questions myself...

Thanks, but the second link is to one of my own posts and the tip in the second doesn't apply — I already have hal installed. As I said at Linux Questions, I can live without this stuff.

Sorry David, so much going on lately so not that with it.

Just heard this horrible news... I'm stunned and saddened.

My heartfelt condolences to his family. Mark was a gentleman and a genius. R.I.P

Have you tried uninstalling gpodder as per post #5?
