Low Disk Space

Hi Smurphos: Many thanks for your detailed reply and my apologies for this late answer. Because a couple of problems came up recently, having to do with Windoze 10 and Linux Mint 19, I've set aside dealing with the screensaver issue for now. I don't know if you can perhaps me with the following issu...

Cinnamon Native Screensaver / Lock-screen Background Slideshow [How-to]

Hi Smurphos: I recently installed Linux Mint 19. And why I generally like it I do miss a screen saver that allows me to use my own pictures. Some Forum member pointed me to your really detailed post. Still, for me there are a few questions left I hope you won't mind answering :D. 1) Once I have copi...

Vivaldi AWOL (Linux Mint 19 Terminal Trouble and Screen Saver Snafu :()

Hi Vineyridge: Glad to hear that you did manage to install Vivaldi after all :). I'm not exactly sure why your Software Manager didn't contain Vivaldi as mine did. But what I did notice, though, is that various distros sometimes seem to have weird "idiosyncrasies" :?. Linux Mint 18 for example flatl...

Linux Mint 19 Terminal Trouble and Screen Saver Snafu :(

Hi Karlchen: Many thanks for your answers and my apologies for not replying sooner. I think the problem with not being able to install Vivaldi was that I was trying to do it with an older version and a download site that had changed . Applying this 'theory', i.e. modifying the Terminal commands wher...

Linux Mint 19 Terminal Trouble and Screen Saver Snafu :(

Hi Vineyridge: Many thanks for your reply. I finally did get Vivaldi installed (a few days ago). I think I used the Software Manager (where I found it by using the search field in the right upper corner), which made installing really easy :). I don't know, though, why I didn't check the Software Man...

Linux Mint 19 Terminal Trouble and Screen Saver Snafu :(

Hi Forum: I just installed Linux Mint 19 x64, which was a snap . After that, though, the road got quickly a bit bumpy :shock:. 1) After setting up the Desktop I tried to install a second browser (like e.g. Vivaldi , Opera , etc.). Finding the command lines for the Terminal online was equally easy (s...

LM18 doesn't recognize external hard drive :(

Hi MintBean: Thanks for your reply. Well, that's exactly what I did. Before restarting LM18 I unplugged the 2 'working' drives, i.e. only plugged in the one that doesn't and in one of the USB ports where one of the working external HDDs had been plugged in. Still, the same result: Linux doesn't reco...

LM18 doesn't recognize external hard drive :(

Hi Catweazel:

Thanks for your feedback!

Well, I did exactly what you suggested. The 2 external HDDs, that Linux always recognizes, of course showed up in the "Explorer". The third one, though, once again did not :shock:.

What next?

Many thanks again.

LM18 doesn't recognize external hard drive :(

Hi Forum: I use LM18 with 3 external hard drives (in addition to 2 internal ones), two of which always get recognized/mounted when I start Linux. The third one, however, doesn't (although Win7 always recognizes it). Googling for a solution didn't really find anything helpful. Except to open the Term...

Installing IrfanView in Linux Mint 18
