Re: Remote desktop access

As far as I know Windows 10 Home edition does not have RDP.

And I have not found a way to enable the recent Mint Mate and Xfce versions 19.1 and 19.2 to accept remote access.
If someone knows how to enable it I will be very obliged. :)
Please.

Re: no window manager and control center

Thank you for the reaction.
I solved the problem. Did not realise that I had to login on Xfce and no longer on Mate.

[solved] no window manager and control center

Dear members, On 64b Linux Mint Mate 19.1 on my older laptop I had problems with the borders of windows and button icons (max, min, resize etc). Today, I thought maybe upgrading to 19.2 would solve these problems. I upgraded by terminal because there was no upgrade path offered in Update Manager. Af...

Re: Window Borders/Controls Missing After Updating

Same here. Especially the
After I logged in I discovered that all of my windows had lost their borders/controls! :shock:
When I went to the Control Centre and clicked on the "Windows" option in the "Look & Feel" section, I got a message stating "Unsupported Window Manager".

Re: Mint 19.1 Mate boot problems, grub added other options

I found a solution to get Mint to start. It needed the nomodeset option in Grub! When I use this disk in a usb-sata-disk hub connected to the usb port of the laptop it functions properly. But when I put it where it belongs, in the laptop, it starts but my mouse clicks and keyboard don't function any...

Re: Mint 19.1 Mate boot problems, grub added other options

Thank you for your response TI58C.

The thing is Mint is not properly starting. So I do not have the option you suggest, performing a sudo update-grub.
But I tried to fix it with boot-repair and now it is no longer showing up in the grub menu. And still not starting.

Dear members, I installed Mint 19.1 Mate 64b on a different machine then it is supposed to run from. It would not install on the older laptop I wanted to use it on. When I first started the laptop I saw a grub showing the Mint 19 option and lower an option from the other machine. Looking (with F2) a...

Re: Mint 19, installation and booting issues

I seem to remember you can change the booting options. The ones I would have a look at are the resolution ones. (I am no expert). Just a wild guess. I meant the booting of mint: chapter Boot Linux Mint in the documentation ( https://linuxmint-installation-guide.readthedocs.io/en/latest/search.html?...

After a lot of tinkering with the bios and switching between 18.3 and 19 to install, I managed to install 18.3.

Thanks for your response @Michael Louwe, But I do not think this is the case. Everything works when I boot from the usb stick. It goes wrong when I try to install it on the nvme ssd disk. Because I thought the installation had failed I went back to a 18.3 version. Started to install it and came acro...
