      A Practical Guide To Grub Repair On Ubuntu (And Probably Linux Mint)

      news.movim.eu / gadgeteerza-tech-blog · Sunday, 31 January, 2021 - 11:11

    I must say I have messed up my Grub twice on Manjaro Linux and have learnt to just take a deep breath, go grab some coffee, and get on with figuring out the repair. I've never lost any data and both times it was my own stupidity, and usually related to writing a Grub change to /dev/sda where actually my boot drive is /dev/sdb and that is where my Grub is supposed to write to.

    So if you still panic (or have never had a Grub issue and don't know what panic is) then this is a good guide to read through and keep for that future event.

      How To Enable Hardware Accelerated Video Decode In Google Chrome, Brave, Vivaldi And Opera Browsers On Debian, Ubuntu Or Linux Mint

      news.movim.eu / gadgeteerza-tech-blog · Saturday, 30 January, 2021 - 20:26

    Google Chrome 88 (and newer) has made hardware accelerated video decoding available on Linux, but it's not enabled by default. Google Chrome is not the only Chromium-based web browser to support hardware acceleration on Linux though. This article explains how to enable hardware-accelerated video decoding in Google Chrome, Brave, Vivaldi and Opera web browsers running on Debian, Ubuntu, Pop!_OS or Linux Mint (Xorg only).

    Using hardware-accelerated video decode in your web browser should result in using less CPU usage (and thus, less battery draining) when playing online videos.
