Remmina VNC connections ignore my laptop keyboard.

Have recently installed Mint 19.1, Remmina installed from repo but had some trouble getting a connection, ended up installing this older vino https://ubuntu.pkgs.org/16.04/ubuntu-main-amd64/vino_3.8.1-0ubuntu9_amd64.deb.html and adding this line '192.168.11.232 haddon-Hp20-2201a.local' to '~/etc/hos...

Re: Lost main SSD

Tried SSD in a cradle, nothing. Sent it away to recovery specialists DataLabsNZ, no data recovered! Up & running now with a new Samsung 860 EVO 500GB with Mint 19.1 and backed up data; with the exception of 2 files which are slowly being rebuilt as best we can. Only significant issue in the rebuild ...

Lost main SSD

I strongly expect that there is nothing that can be done, but hope springs eternal. Get these messages on startup when I start from Mint19 on a USB stick, otherwise it is a 'no boot device detected' message.

[ReSOLVED]: Trouble creating bootible non-Debian OS's on USB sticks.

I am doubting it is an Unetbootin issue. I have since found out that the Legacy ISO is being recognised as a CD/DVD type file and the Zenwalk ISO was also not in the correct format to be installed to USB and required a particular bootloader to be preinstalled onto a USB stick to be usefull. That is ...

[ReSOLVED]Trouble creating bootible non-Debian OS's on USB sticks.

I have written several Debian based OS's to USB drives using USB Image Writer and UNetbootin without any incident BUT have been unable to write either zenlive-7.4-dvd.iso nor Legacy_OS_2.1_LTS.iso (With both Slack & Puppy based respectively) using either of these writers or with the command line's "...

Lyrics for Banshee 2.6.2? Installing 'Banshee Community Exte

Hello Banshee has been installed from Software Manager (Mint 17.2 Cinnamon) and I looked for the Lyrics extension; not included the extensions list [Edit|Preferences Extensions tab]; and when I followed Banshee Help to their home page FAQ's there they list the Lyrics extension as available with thei...

Re: Wifi dropping on > battery, Power Management:off !

Thank-you Pjotr, I was thinking I would be needing something like that, but needed the hand holding, so thank you again. The results, having tried all your ideas, is that now I have up-graded Mint 17.2 Cinnamon to 3.16.0-38 kernel as Update Manager recommends and the latest BIOS 215 (was 212) and th...
