NVIDIA 460 HDMI No audio sound sink Linux mint

I lost HDMI as audio output device when I updated to Linux Mint 20.2

Using Nvidia 460 from drivers interface plus this change below, gave me back the audio HDMI output option.

Add this

pcie_port_pm=offin /etc/default/grub

so it looked like this

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash pcie_port_pm=off"

and updated grub with

sudo update-grub

 The above was originally posted by summonholmes over at

Lutris wont remove uninstalled game

Did you uninstall something from Lutris but the icon is still there?

Not happy with just hiding the game?

Not to worry

        overseer12 over at have you covered.


Or if you feel adventurous you can paste:

sqlite3 ~/.local/share/lutris/pga.db "DELETE FROM games WHERE hidden=1;"

into a file named & make it executable by: chmod +x

and the run ./ to remove all hidden entries.

Don't forget to first hide the uninstalled game for this to work.

Comment out

Proxmox.Utils.checked_command(function() {}); // display subscription status

So it looks like

Can't access Synology admin interface with hostname or domain name.

I came across a situation where i could not access the admin interface using the domain and hostname. Accessing the non admin parts of the NAS with hostname worked, as well as accessing the admin interface by IP numbers.

The solution for me, turned out to be a manual sync with the NTP server  (Control panel - Regional options - Time - Update Now).
