An unexpected conversion
« on: August 24, 2019, 07:03:22 pm »
Pop OS decided to blow itself up, and so my gaming machine has received a Peppermint cleanse slightly sooner than expected. Aside from the usual grub update I must do here (including acpi_osi="!Windows 2015" in grub and running update-grub) I've had no issues. This thing's flying.

I'll be making my usual SSD adjustments (fstab changes and the like), and updating the nvidia drivers. I see no worries here either - smooth sailing so far. :)

Though I have noticed one thing on all devices: when the system is locked with light locker, the screen doesn't turn off as it's supposed to (as per the power settings). Any tips?  :)

I decided to purge light-locker and revert to i3lock. Everything wonderful on that front.

I've noticed, however, that my volume keys do nothing.

It seems the volume keys definitely work. I just don't get notifications. Good enough for me.  :) ;)

If you want volume key notifications, see if this works:
https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,7139.msg73008.html#msg73008

Theoretically it should for most, those keybindings for some reason stop notifications .. the keybindings aren't necessary for most users but they are for a few, hence adding them as a compromise (rather volume keys work for everyone).

Works perfectly. Thank you! :)
