Re: Where is nano?

I have just upgraded to Mint 19 Mate. I didn't know what the Text Editor was, so I deleted that icon that I had installed on the desktop. I later found that it was nano, but I can't find it when I need it. It is not listed among the applications, searching for "nano" and "text editor" doesn't find ...

Re: Apple Magic Trackpad (ver 1)

fwiw: I use a Logitech T651 bluetooth rechargeable trackpad which was originally made and sold as an 'Apple only' device. I added the repository package xserver-xorg-input-synaptics to gain full control. Then in a terminal: xinput --list to find the trackpad device id (mine is 13) then in a terminal...

Re: Grub 2 with OS on 2 Hard drives?

Of coarse to see a grub screen the drive containing grub must either be at the top of the bios boot order or manually selected. You can find which drives contain a grub config by copy/paste the following into a terminal window: sudo fdisk -l 2>/dev/null | egrep "Disk /|/dev/" | sed "s#^/dev/#Part /d...

Re: Can I do this?

so my plan is this: simply install Linux on the second drive, and choose the boot device at startup, from CMOS. Can anyone see any snags I haven't thought of? TIA. Not only can you do this, it's a very good strategy and will keep your two OS entirely independent. In this situation I would physicall...

Re: Control center

Try opening a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+t or from the panel or menu) and type or copy/paste:

Code: Select all

mate-control-center
Does that open?
Also you may be able to reach the mouse adjustments by clicking Menu and typing
"mouse" into the menu search

The only way to know for sure is to substitute the keyboard. I would bet the odds are in your favor though. If the laptop is in good condition otherwise it is...
