Re: Make terminal easier with few tricks.

For 2. there is this thing at least in cinnamon's file manager that you can put a button "Open a terminal in the active folder" in the toolbar. So you can navigate to the directory you want with the file manager and then open a terminal there. This is super useful (at least to me) and seem...

Re: Installing Linux Mint 18.1 on Macbook Pro & Macbook

You should be good to go, there doesnt to be any particular problem. When you have the exact model, go to http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/macbook_pro/index-macbookpro.html and find what's the codename for this product (probably MacBookPro9,1 or 10,1), then make a google search of it, like just...

La difficulté c'est de définir ce que veut dire "les processus qui ne servent plus", si tu veux une définition automatique au lieu de manuelle.

Re: Fix grub-pc to be grub-efi

The fstab line is correct, and it will indeed have to go in all your linux installs. Small detail : personally I use the options "utf8,fmask=0133" (which is what Mint<18 was using) instead of "umask=0077", as the former allows read-only access to the EFI partition for non-root, m...

Oui dans un terminal c'est simplement kill Il faut connaitre le numéro d'identité du processus en question (=pid), ensuite kill -5 pid demande gentiment au processus de quitter. Si le processus ne répond pas, il faut parfois être plus brutal kill -9 pid qui tue immédiatement le processus sans lui la...

Re: Linux Mint 18.2 Installation disaster

The driver descriptor says the physical block size is 2048 bytes, but Linux says it is 512 bytes. Cancel/Ignore If I'm not mistaken, this error happens because of the USB stick.

Re: Linux Mint 18.2 Installation disaster

You could still try to salvage some data if you see some partitions which have not been touched. Also please report the output of the following commands, so that we can check the integrity of your drive(s) sudo parted --list sudo gdisk -l /dev/sda sudo gdisk -l /dev/sdb (the l in -l is a lowercase L...

Re: mount read write MacOs usb external drive, copy files

You cant write to an hfs+ partition because (at least last time I looked) Linux doesnt have full support of this proprietary filesystem. You need to copy the files to a linux filesystem before playing with them. For some files you will need to be root to copy them : in the file manager click on the ...

Re: after installing LM18.2XFCE in dualboot - cant boot

sda3 is now /root, sda4 is /home, sda5 is swap that does not make sense. you need a / partition, without which you cannot have a /root. /root is the home directory of the root user, it's completely different from /. Looks like you either made a typo, or the install was completely wrong. thus losing...

Legacy mode. A bit of history first : - Legacy/BIOS mode is the way PCs used to boot until windows 7 included. This was the only way to boot on this computers, and Linux would boot this way too (either single boot or dual boot, multiboot...). Before win8, Windows and Linux were installed in Legacy m...

Yes this is taking long, your problem is a bit more complex than what I'm used to on this forum, or there is something I'm missing that prevents boot. Also there is an unavoidable delay between you posting and me answering (and then you reading my answer), so I will try to put more suggestions per p...

you can put a timeout of 1 second. On a standard hard drive, I get boots of around 1'30'', and on SSD 15-20 seconds, so 1 second doesnt make much of a difference.

Ok it's strange that the external HD doesnt appear when booted in the live USB. But we can work around that. Does the option to boot the external HD ("EFI Boot" with an orange icon normally) appear when you boot pressing alt/option on the Sierra machine ? If not, then indeed reformat the d...
