Perplexing Boot Problem (SOLVED)

I am trying to get my daughter's computer going. It is an all in one Toshiba computer (screen and motherboard etc in the computer body) with USB plugins for the mouse and keyboard. When she bought it, it was loaded with Windows 7. It has good specs (Intel Core i7 etc). It was not loading the operati...

Re: LMDE Cindy 3 Not Booting Now (SOLVED)

Just an update to let folk know that I could not get Cindy 3 to load properly, but I could access everything on that partition from my Linuxmint Mate partition, so all data recovered. In the end I re-installed Cindy 3 on a slightly larger partition, got the Brother multi-function printer/copier etc ...

Re: LMDE Cindy 3 Not Booting Now

Thanks for your help, but I am not sure what I need to do. I have downloaded, checked and copied LMDE Cindy 3 onto a DVD-R and loaded Cindy from that. I have opened the terminal and entered fsck /dec/sda5 with no outcome and tried fsck /dev/sda5 again with no outcome. I could just completely reinsta...

LMDE Cindy 3 Not Booting Now (SOLVED)

LMDE Cindy 3 has been booting, opening and working fine for months but the last time I was using it (yesterday) it seemed slow and wouldn't update properly. I closed it down and tried to re-open it. It briefly shows the Linuxmint logo but doesn't open. Instead I get the following message on screen: ...

Re: Evince not printing images what you see on screen

Good thought. Have now tried that.

Unfortunately the saved pdf lacks the same background text and prints out without that text.

Have sent the original and a printout showing what is missing to Linuxmint admin and to Evince.

Re: X Reader & Evince not printing what you see on screen

Thanks Xenopeek for the linixmint admin email address for Xreader and for the contact details for Evince (my previous attempt to contact Evince came to nothing). I do have Xreader and had had no success with this function so also loaded Evince to see if it could print out these documents with Mint 1...

Re: Evince not printing images for password protected PDF

I have now upgraded to Linux Mint 18.3. I still can't use Evince to print out certain documents (share contract purchase/sale notices). It opens these password protected documents ok and I can see all of the detail/text on the pdf, but it still only prints the information entered into the labelled f...

Re: Common data partition for Linux 18.3 and LMDE Betsy

Thanks very much for that advice. I can see that a common data partition is the way to go. Do I still need a small /home partition(s) for each operating system? If so, how many gigabytes for each? How do I set up a data partition without losing all of the data on the current /home partition. I am a ...

I would like to know how to partition a hard drive so that I can use either Linux Mint Mate 18.3 or Linux Mint LMDE 'Betsy' and have both operating systems work with the same /home partition....if that is possible. For many years now I have kept a separate root partition for Mate and /home as well a...

Thanks for the help. I tried a full switch off/switch on (including switching off at the wall power plug) but that didn't solve my problem. I then switched off Fast Startup and Sleep in Windows 10, (as per the advice from Walter Glenn in the howtogeek attachment), then shut down completely and swit...

I have a dual boot set-up with Linux 17.1 on one hard disk and Windows 10 on a second hard disk. Both hard disks are internal. I recently upgraded the Windows hard drive from Windows 7 to Windows 10.

Re: Evince not printing images for password protected PDF

Ok thanks. Yes, remember reading that now and not upgrading because 17.3 is working just fine and have made changes to enable my connected Brother multifunction printer/scanner/copier to work and some other changes. So sticking with 17.3 on my desktop. Have followed your code in my linuxmint 18 lapt...

Re: Evince not printing what you see on screen

Thanks for the help. My main computer is still Linuxmint 17.3 and the commands get me so far but ultimately fail to install flatpack. I will try your advice on my Linuxmint 18 laptop but ultimately I will want to get Evince operating on my desktop computer. I think there is an upgrade from 17.3 to 1...
