Re: How to install Linux mint to new ssd

I just burned the Mint image to a USB stick, booted to the stick, and clicked the Install icon on the desktop and went through the normal procedure.

Re: How to install Linux mint to new ssd

No different than installing to a hard drive as far as I know. I recently did an install to an ssd, and it went just like any other install.

Re: Script to automate website access and conference call recording

So, you do all the opening the web page and logging in and such with actiona, and only use Bash to start actiona? I had never heard of actiona before, I'll have to check it out.

Re: First Linux laptop

Welcome aboard, Minux1! I suspect there are millions of old computers gathering dust in a closet that could have been given a new lease on life by installing Linux. Often when I install Mint on an old Windwoes computer for somebody, they say, "Wow, this is faster than it ever was, even when it was n...

(Non-standard hardware in the Surface.) But people were working on making it easier, and I assume by now it should be relatively easy....

Re: kernels 4.15, 4.18, 5.0?

If all is working well for you, then there is probably no advantage to installing a newer kernel. If you decide to install another kernel, make sure you keep at least one known working kernel, just in case.

My first suggestion: don't wait so long before asking for help. You'll never get it done when you're frustrated.

Second suggestion: provide the information that those who are trying to help you have asked for.

Re: Any musicians out there using Mint/Linux?

I have used Audacity in Linux a fair bit and it works well. Have also used JACK and Rosegarden a bit and they also work well. If you want to print music out, MuseScore is great.

Re: MP-BIOS bug: 8254 timer not connected and other errors

My mother's computer used to show the "MP-BIOS bug: 8254 timer not connected" error, but everything seemed to work just fine. The rest of those error messages somebody smarter than me will have to help you with.
