Re: I am not a Minter but I would like to be

I am hoping that I will get Mint and start to use it more and more as I get used to having a machine that works again. One day it would be nice to contribute here and help new Minters - although I have a long way to go before I am at that level! I am hoping today is the day you will begin your jour...

Re: [RESOLVED] Format SD card

Hi Everyone, I purchased an external card reader and firstly formatted it in Windows to FAT32. I tested it by copying files to and from. It all worked perfectly. I then used the external reader hub to connect to the Mint computer. It worked flawlessly too. Whether the laptop's SD port is broken or ...

Re: Xfce suspend with lid close

OK I did it--I just installed 18.3 MATE in the same configuration and there are no issues with
lid closing/opening suspend.
Therefore I surmise this to be an anomaly associated with this particular machine's architecture
when using Xfce.

Re: Cannot update from update manager

Make sure to get your Mint updates. In your Menu select Software Sources Click the Restore defaults button. There will be a dialog open asking you to update your cache Click Yes. After which you should get your Mint updates. After this you can address the bad repository issue. Keep your Mint updated...

Re: Xfce suspend with lid close

Hi all41. I don't have a laptop. I don't use suspend. But I do drive by a Holiday Inn Express on my way to work! I have seen tons of reports similar to yours on the web that don't seem to be getting properly solved. But I did get some hints of things to investigate. Are you using the lock screen on...

Re: Usernames

I first started using the Ben Trabetere pseudonym in the 1980s when a merchant, I want to say Radio Shack, needed my name and telephone number in order to complete a transaction. That is also the time when I started giving merchants the telephone number for Time/Temperature for Fort Worth, Texas (8...

Xfce suspend with lid close

My netbook Compaq CQ-58 had been running 17.3 MATE successfully but I recently decided to reinstall a fresh copy of 19 MATE--but found Tara to be rather demanding of the minimal resources available, so I reverted to a freshly installed 18.3 Xfce. I am pleased with the decision--this is far less reso...

Just installed Mint Cinnamon 19.0. Did erase everything and LVM. I usually do "Something Else" and create: /dev/sda1 ext /dev/sda5 swap /dev/sda6 ext4 home /dev/sda7 ext4 extra space at end. This is rather strange-- /dev/sda1 would normally be mounted as / Plus partitioning the extra space seems to...

Re: FORMAT SD CARD

Where is 'Disks Utility? Dear all41 and others, After all the to-ing and fro-ing, can I therefore assume that although this laptop has a card reader slot that it does NOT have a card reader inside?

How do I format an SD card in FAT32? I have tried using Gparted but it will not recognise the card.
