Re: 19.3 to 20 - complete failure, extremely angry

I wonder how many having upgrade problems on UEFI computers, installed the first version with secure boot off in the BIOS, and just forgot about it, but later have Secure Boot enabled, changed the bootloader to efibootmgr, and then forget to turn off the Secure Boot for the new install or the upgrad...

Re: Deliver Me From "SYSTEMD" HELL!

Interesting information from exactly a year ago I somehow, being busy with other matters in life, missed seeing, till now. Seems Knoppix, a distro almost all Linux users have knowledge of or familiarity over the years with, has decided to drop systemd as the init system. https://www.techrepublic.com...

Re: Deliver Me From "SYSTEMD" HELL!

Without thinking, ran the systemd command I always use (timedatectl set-local-rtc 1). MX told me to kick rocks. systemd not enabled, command not recognized. Able to change the setting in Date & Time, though. At least you got the warning. I didn't or missed seeing it in "depends" on my systemd free ...

Re: Deliver Me From "SYSTEMD" HELL!

Finally got around to installing the current version of MX Linux in a test box. Not sure I understand your objection ("various settings were scattered about too much"). Are you talking about the desktop settings? Or really deep system files stuff? My next experiment: cloning the first installation ...

Logitech MK320 combo. Unifying Receiver vs LOGI Receiver. WORKS!

I'm using Mint 18.3 and was given a new MK320 keyboard & Mouse Combo. Box didn't list Linux as OS it would work with. It did list Chrome OS. Maybe take a chance since both use Linux kernel, where drivers are located? It doesn't work with my M325 mouse on a Unifying Receiver. Solaar program for Unify...

Re: Deliver Me From "SYSTEMD" HELL!

Looks like we are stuck with it, unless something horrible happens because of it, which causes some major distros to question their move to it.

Did you get a graphical screen with LXDM, without booting with Systemd as your init?
Didn't try it. Tried mdm, ldm, gdm. I'm tired of messing with it, at least for now. I have other things I need to be doing.

Re: Deliver Me From "SYSTEMD" HELL!

I messed around with it some more yesterday, and finally got it to go direct to the mdm graphical login screen. Oddly, I think it was upgrading the kernel from the one 18.3 came stock with to " linux /boot/vmlinuz-4.15.0-96-generic ". Before I had to login and password at a TTY screen, then issue md...

Re: Deliver Me From "SYSTEMD" HELL!

I tried out MX with Upstart, but wasn't greatly attracted to it. Seemed to me various settings were scattered about too much ... Did you look at antiX? Same team but more aggressively anti-systemd. As in, doesn't have, at all. I'm fiddling with it, gonna put in a test box just for grins. Maybe wort...

Re: Deliver Me From "SYSTEMD" HELL!

all my attempts to rip out Systemd permanently were in vain, as essential packages which rely on it were candidates for removal. That's why I quit messing around with it. I still have the version I did manage to run from Upstart, but still had to login from a terminal screen, then a second login fr...

Re: keyboard does not respond

Run a search on linuxmint forums for keyboard "quirks" which I had to do for a mechanical keyboard once so I could use it. The "quirk" had to be place in GRUB as I recall.

Re: [Tutorial] Live usb with persistence over 4GB

I ran into a similar problem between FAT32 and NTFS recently, since my wife needed her laptop upgraded from W7 to W10 for using their secure server's VPN software from her government office which wouldn't install on W7. I downloaded the 5.4 GB W10 ISO, and kept getting some "File Split Error" when t...

Re: Mint install can't find win10 MBR

you messaged me, but I've not been active much if at all in months. What I would do if you is to reinstall Mint again, on top of itself. It hopefully will find the MBR for windows. You need to give others here more information like the computer model, if it is an UEFI type BIOS, bit version (32 or 6...

Re: Linux mint wakeup problem

It worked a week, then problems again. Sounds more like a hardware problem. Is that a Seagate HDD? Checked the SMART values on it using DISKS program? Could be bad sectors in drive increasing.

Re: Sound Issues - HALP!

There's just something sadly wrong with sound after systemd was added to Mint. That happens sometimes to me, and choosing to logout or switch user, and then immediately go back into the profile I was using immediately corrects it. Systemd has over 250 "man pages" on how to correct things, but who wa...
