Re: How can I uninstall linuxmint 15 mate

But anyway yesterday I found out that you were correct in your first analysis of the wireless_info.text and after I finally booted into the new installation on Linuxmint 15 mate (which I did connected to t...

Hello Karl, Thank you for answering me !!! The machine does have Fn+F11 to turn wireless on and off. When I'm in Windows a small window on the upper left of the screen shows momentarily on or off when you press the keys mentioned. But when I'm in Linuxmint, nothing happens and nothing shows when you...

Re: How can I uninstall linuxmint 15 mate

Dear Karl, I'm not sure how I got the result but however this is what I got. I'm not sure if it's complete. Now it's pastebin.com/ F3UvLfWx Note: I haven't read the whole book yet but while I was browsing it, almost at the end, I found "how to make a script executable". Somehow, I'm glad I asked thi...

Re: How can I uninstall linuxmint 15 mate

Dear Karl,
Let me remind you that I don't understand this language so much. When you say "script", what exactly are you referring to? The command line or the extracted text? How do I make the script "executable"? And what do mean by "running"?

Joel,

Re: How can I uninstall linuxmint 15 mate

Karl, Am I correct to think that these last command lines you gave me will extract the file to the folder /home/joel/Descargas?

Hi Karl, The terminal answers /home/joel/Descargas/wireless_script_xtd.zip /home/joel/.cache/.fr-vap4rG/wireless_script_xtd.sh /home/joel/.cache/.fr-UPYXRg/wireless_script_xtd.sh Note: It seems the only way to boot into Mint is through the recovery mode in 3 or 4 intents. On standby, Joel
