Re: Trying to run Win7 on Win10 VB

My sister hates Win10 with a passion, but I just spent 8 days with her and she refuses to even glance at a Linux box. Then let her suffer. You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him (or her) drink. Her husband is shy of Linux because his "Hummingbird Radar" for finding fish uses a versio...

Re: Installing Linux Mint on Brand New Laptop

Most computers will, during the boot sequence, show "Hit F12 for Boot Menu" or something like that. Some will show "Hit Del for Setup." You may have to go to setup to get it to boot to your USB. Which key you hit for Boot Menu or Setup depends upon brand and model. These pages may be helpful: https:...

And to suggest it was sabotage is just your everyday tinfoil hat ignorance.
Or, it could be that Portreve is simply familiar with Microsoft's past history.

Sometimes that means there is a physical switch that is turned off. A friend had his Dell laptop for several years before he became aware of it. And he didn't find it, I did.

Re: [SOLVED -partially-] Correct video driver not working in VirtualBox/W7 on HP Probook 407 G0

Amongst friends here we call it 'Wintendo'.... :mrgreen: Love it! A lot of functions in Linux programs can be called from the command line. If at some time you really want to import all those files to FreeCAD, it could probably be automated with a single line script. Obviously, if Win7 is running f...

Re: Dual Boot Two Linux Versions

"Install alongside" should work. I have used it several times to have more than one Linux install on a computer. (But now I usually just install them in VirtualBox.) As Flemur noted, the new install will then control Grub/booting, and your 18.3 install will be in the boot menu.

When you enter your password in the terminal, it does not echo on the screen. No dots, no asterisks, nothing. Type it in blind and press Enter.

Re: Linux Mint won't boot into a GUI Desktop Environment

It is not recommended to have more than one desktop environment installed. It used to be common when I started using Linux 16 years ago, but not any more. I don't know how to recover from that, but undoubtedly somebody will.

Re: How do I install the BrosTrend AC3 on Mint?

Navigate to the install.sh file in your file manager. Right click on it, then click Properties. You will be able to set it to be executable there. You can also give a file execute permission from the terminal, but I'm so used to doing it from the file manager I never remember how to do it from the t...

Re: FreeCAD information collection

I don't know, but it seems unlikely. In general, that would be totally against the open source philosophy. Also, according to their github page, there have been 13,973 commits by 156 contributors. It seems likely that some of those developers are looking over other people's code now and then, and it...
