Re: New MInt 18.0 CD Solved

Thanks. I plugged the Mint 18 USB flash drive into a USB port and downloaded the original Mint 18.0 Cinnamon. I forgot where I had stored the flash drive why I bought the CD. I should learn how to make the CD's again. Been some years. Works fine but the USB port does not support my track ball mouse ...

Re: New MInt 18.0 CD Solved

Thanks for all your help. What a waste of time.
I think I will need VLC and a video down loader for Firefox. I had one do not remember which one though. I stay in contact with my daughters and get videos one in a while.
It was a leaning experience.

Re: New MInt 18.0 CD

No Install Icon.
I clicked on the Computer Icon. It does not show the CD. Shows all the normal stuff.
I opened each folder under Computer. No CD.
I can install updates.
No where did I select install on complete disc and wipe out two other distros.
It recognizes my password.

New MInt 18.0 CD Solved

I just put a new CD into an older Acer 5515 that has been running Mint just fine.
Richgt now I can run Live CD. I see Computer Icon and Home folder Icon but no Icon for the CD with "Install Mint" or similar words.
I always have in the past.
Should I just start the CD again? Thank you.

Re: Trying to install Mint 19.2 Mate 64 bit

Thanks guys but I see the techs have changed mint a lot. I don't like it now. I have been with Mint since 6.0. I use to dual boot. Did triple boot a couple times. This is almost radical. I will stick with 18.0 and Firefox as long as I can. The Acer 5515 has mileage on it but still runs Mint quite we...

Re: Trying to install Mint 19.2 Mate 64 bit

My bad. It is Mint 18.0, not 19.0. It has an issue. I will put 18 back in. Mint 19.2 is terrible. No idea what the techs were thinking when they made this. Right now all I get is Live CD with the 19.2 CD. I see no option for install. I have to wipe out Mate 18.0 and Cinnamon 18.0 that are wonky for ...

Re: Acer touch pad

The laptop that does work, the USB ports do mostly work at times. I am suspecting the laptop might need a bios upgrade but no idea if it can be done.
I have to upgrade it to Mint 19.2. I have the DVD.

Acer touch pad

I have two 5515 Acer laptops. Both touch pads failed. I found some results with a Google search. Some are You Tube videos. I used the Fn and F7 buttons. One Acer responded. USB ports do not work though. They do run Mint quite well though. Below is one link. https://www.drivereasy.com/knowledge/acer-...

Re: Whats everyone currently listening to?

Still listening to Pandora. Great with Bluetooth hearing aids. I can listen anywhere. Since I dance a lot, I get ideas. Thinking of getting a pair of AirPods and try them with a dance partner during band breaks when there is no music. Not every dance partner can wear one of my hearing aids. My iPhon...

Re: Mouse not working

I guess I should have said it. I have two cable trackball setups. Neither work. I also found out I cannot continue updates but that will be a no issue with a fresh install. I have found out over the years that failure is not an option, it also comes bundled with Linux but repairable after a period o...

Re: Mouse not working

I have had a cable Logitech for some years I mentioned earlier. Maybe a Bluetooth would work but that is a WAG if the pad does not work. Right now I will put the Mint 19 on the Acer I just found. I like getting videos about great grand daughters in Texas. VLC was working just fine on other laptop. S...

Re: Mouse not working SOLVED

I need a mouse to do what is suggested. Not really solved. The PC can be used for parts. "Solved did not go where it should have." I found a laptop called E Machine, a rebranded 5515 my stepson gave me a few years ago. It has Mint 18 64 bit Cinnamon on it. I just cannot download videos like I could ...

The pointer is stuck in one spot. I un plug, plug back in and move the track ball and no response. I have two track ball units. I ...
