Re: No internet and more

To sleeper12, and all, This is not the only problem that I have had solved without my knowledge! I also have recent posts under the title, "Mint 20 Log on", and the last post from me (this evening) mentions a problem that got solved, seemingly with no help from me. I do not know how these things hap...

Re: Mint 20 Log On

to diapason, Again, thank you very much! I have no idea if that information will ever be of use to me, but I AM going to write down that "identity" for each of my three existing computers, and any more in the future, and keep it on file "just in case" I ever need the computer's name for anything. Bo...

Re: No internet and more

To sleeper12, I entered the command, (the same one you gave me on Saturday 09/26/20 at 8:34PM), and found power management to be "OFF". I do not remember turning it off, so I sincerely don't know how that got corrected. Anyway, thank you very much for looking out for me, as I am in strange land here...

Re: Mint 20 Log On

To diapason and all, I am very happy, but also sincerely baffled!!! For the last day or so, I have been too busy to get on the "new" computer to pursue the information requested by diapason in his last post. So, just now, at around 8:30 PM, Tuesday Sept 29, I turned on the "new" computer, and the lo...

Re: No internet and more

To Larry78723, Thank you. For information that no one asked for, I am a retired Mechanical Engineer with patents to my credit, a career of world travel, and all the trimmings. I have often told people that I was successful as an engineer because I could figure things out, whereas I would have been a...

Mint 20 Log On

I just got a used computer with Linux Mint 20 (Ulyana) Cinnamon already installed. When I first logged on, I got a little "window" with "User name, and Password" in it. The dealer that I bought it from had "user" for the user name, and a simple repetition of keys for a password. I have successfully ...

Re: No internet and more

To ralplper and all, If I am understanding your question. I think the answer is "no wireless Internet" situation. To give you a simple example; with the computer "Plugged in" to my Internet connection, I just clicked on my Google icon and then entered, "Price Chopper Cortland" and got the PC website...

Re: No internet and more

Sadly, I bought the computer from a computer shop with Linux 20 installed. Also, the guy who owns the computer shop is not real literate regarding Linux, and has had problems with it before. I am kind of on my own here. Both my desktop and my other old laptop have Linux Mint 19.1 Tessa, and I have b...

Re: No internet and more

It took me awhile to figure out how to do this, since the computer in question does NOT connect to the Internet. I dug up an old thing that plugs into a slot and lets me copy stuff onto it. (I can't believe I just said that; I had to plug in the internet connection in order to get this to work at al...

Re: Linux 20 Cinnamon taskbar

To All, So far I have been trying all this stuff with this computer plugged into the Internet with a hard wire. Today, I thought I should see how much slower it might be without the hardwire connection, (my other laptop works just fine anywhere in my home with no hardwire connection, but it is slow)...

For the last few days, in another post, I have been asking questions about stuff regarding my recent acquisition, An HP Pavilion g7 laptop. To start with, I had plugged in an Internet connection and started asking questions, etc. when I decided to unplug the Internet cable and see if the reaction ti...

Re: Linux 20 Cinnamon taskbar

To all, Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you! I seem to have a few things conquered (I now have links to Google and LibreOffice Writer in my taskbar). Unfortunately, they are far over on the left, mixed in with the logos for LM, Firefox, etc, and I cannot move them. On my desktop, w...

Re: Linux 20 Cinnamon taskbar

To 1NEWLINUXUSR, First, thank you. Note: Something that I clicked on (I don't remember what) said, "LinuxMint 20 (Ulyana)", and I have no idea what that means. When I click on the other icons at the lower left end, I get small window with something that ends in "@cinnamon.org," and I am not sure wha...

Linux 20 Cinnamon taskbar

I just got a used laptop, HP-Pavilion g7-Notebook-PC, and want to populate the taskbar (the band across the bottom of the screen) with a few things like Goggle and Yahoo mail. I have tried to find the answer on the Internet, but have not been successful. Anyone who has dealt with me before knows tha...

Re: Cannot access Internet

It has been awhile due to health issues on the part of my computer supplier, Dan. He finally got back to his shop, and simply got a different computer for me. So, I don't have a solution for the stated problem, and likely never will. He did tell me he successfully got on the Internet at both his hom...

Re: Network Security Key (Solved)

This post is getting old, and I have since generated one titled, "Cannot Access Internet", which directly follows this post. So far, the new development is worse than this one. I took my "new" computer back to the dealer that I bought it from, and he installed Linux Mint 20 for me. I brought it home...
