Re: Understanding EFI, GRUB and all that jazz

I got around that by buying a Dell laptop with W10 about three years ago when my Two Acer's all failed with Linux. Could not figure out dual boot anymore even following instructions here. Details not the same. I bought another with Lenovo from Amazon with Linux Mint on it. USB mouse not recognized. ...

Re: American College is a Waste of Money

My three daughters are college graduates and doing quite well. Two have been working at home for about three years. They make trips to Europe maybe once a year and they are married. Their companies buy up companies.
One daughter is a newspaper reporter, assistant editor and also a writer.

Re: Acer's laptops are always broken...

I do not think I have answered this post before.
I have had two 5515 Acer laptops for some years. They did very well but eventually the touch pads failed.

Re: Finally made the jump to Mint, here's why!

Welcome to Linux. I have been running it on different computers since 2003. Latest is 19.3 on a Lenovo from Amazon but no CD/DVD. The USB does not see my Track ball mouse which is disappointing. All other PC's did. Google said Windows PC's with W10 did not see a Track ball mouse. I have to dig out t...

Re: Good morning from Greece.

Good afternoon from the USA, the State of Massachusetts. I had to jump in as I love Greek cuisine. Quite a few Greek dining places around me and I always finish up with Baklava. At one time I lived on the second floor of a rooming house above a Greek restaurant. Oh the scents. At this time, only tak...

Re: help with bluetooth adapter install

Question for others.
I did not do any research. Both PC's had Bluetooth.
Amazon said the devices would work in Windows PC. NOT. Only Linux PC's.

I have bought three USB adapters for W10 and could not get them to work with the CD or download the Zip file. Sending one back this week for refund.I followed the instructions a few times but no joy.

Lennovo Ideapad 33OS

I does not see my trackball which my four previous Mint machines always saw. Never needed drivers.
