Re: Lennovo lapton not seeing trackball

There must be a text for Command line. All my stuff is on my old Acer laptop that died. It would show what is un USB ports.
Thank you. Poor eyesight. I will try to search. I have to use an Optivisor to read here.

Lennovo lapton not seeing trackball

Lennovo Ideapad 33OS

I does not see my trackball which my four previous Mint machines always saw. Never needed drivers.
I have tried Fn plus F7.

Thanks.

Re: Lennovo with Mint

It will not recognize trackball mouse. My other Mint PC's always did. There is a USB code to check I think. Been some years. 79 Guess I am spoiled.

Mint laptops

I am looking for a Linux Mint standard laptop company in the USA. Both my laptops running 18.0 finally failed. I have a HP running W10. Eye sight issues. Cannot deal with dual booting anymore. I tried two years ago. Not easy getting old. Three younger brothers never had the chance. W10 a pain. Thank...

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.

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.

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 ...
