Re: How to Access Unbootable HDD?

It's not a bad idea. If he's copying to Windows, ownership doesn't matter. If he's copying to an unmentioned other Linux drive then it's a chown to fix. chown -R [username]:[username] [directoryname] While we're here, the user on a LiveCD is 999, not the default install user 1000. So if you did find...

Re: How to Access Unbootable HDD?

How do I get the permissions necessary to move the files through the Live CD?
Start a file manager as root. For Mint Mate it would be
gksu caja

When it asks for the root password, simply hit enter.

Re: In browser, cannot navigate to my router [solved, I gues

Ouch.

I guess the next step is go shopping for a different brand. Not that any SOHO routers are all that great, but a demonstrated unreliability just isn't something you want to tolerate.

Re: In browser, cannot navigate to my router

Yup. My Linksys uses 192.168.1.1, but my DLinks use 192.168.0.1; always check the manual.

OP already knows how to do it in Win, so I'm not too worried about this part.

Re: In browser, cannot navigate to my router

Don't know. I don't have any trouble with my Linksys or DLink. Perhaps it's being picky about the difference between https and http? Also if it's being fussy I'd connect to it directly with cable. Shouldn't need that if Win didn't, but something's off here. Perhaps check the manual - does admin acce...

Re: Swap partition

Swap needs to be as great as RAM because your RAM is written to it for Hibernation. Otherwise, you really don't use swap much anymore. People have plenty of RAM. (You haven't told us how much RAM you have. You should.) Back in the day, the rule of thumb was make swap 1.5x the size of your RAM. This ...

Anyway, Disks will tell you what it's formatted as, if at all. It's not necessary to install Gparted.

2: USB id: /dev/sdb model: MK1646GSX size: 160.0GB So this is it, which means Linux does recognize it. So now I'm less sure about what you mean when you say it doesn't. It should show up in Disks, and it should show up in the Places section of your File Manager. Similar to plugging in a USB stick. ...

I was just thinking that in my experience the trailing slash is optional, BUT I've been using Linux. A directory is a kind of file here, hence we can't have a dir and file of th...

Perhaps you are viewing your screenshots only on the machine that took them? If the distortion is from the laptop's panel, then everything you view through it will be distorted of course.
