Can you boot from a live medium (installation disk or USB stick) and retrieve the information that way?
In a live meduim boot, the command inxi doesn't exist. I have tried to install the command. That doesn't work for the type of booting. Any alterative command?

Hi,
Probably best you come clean and give some more information rather than trying to make us guess.
Anything you wanna tell us?
I provide all information I can. BTW, I just updated my post with an additional information.

Black Screen After Sign in (OOT)

I have another Linux distro installed on my old Dell laptop. It is a Debian based distro. The day before, I got a black screen after sign into the OS. After some online searching, I still can't find a solution. Based on my reading, it has something to do with grub. Update: I just notice that I can s...

"Cinnamon Just crashed. ..."

Lately, I almost always get a message,

Code: Select all

Cinnamon just crashed. You are currently running in Fallback Mode.
Do you want to restart Cinnamon?
when I start up the OS version 18.3.

Any solution?

How to find the location of an installed software?

I use the following command to install a software: sudo apt-get install <software package name> There isn't an error message after executing the above command. I, however, can't find it. There is another version of the same software already in my Linux box. So, the command which <software name> does...

Re: Unable To Select A Boot (urgent) [SOLVED}

For this problem, people mentioned different solutions. I try some of them without a luck. One person said that unpluging his wireless mouse USB solved the problem for him. The method solves the problem for me too although I don't know how it works.

Looks like bad keyboard. Test it on a different machine, or test a different working keyboard on your machine.
The keyboard works fine other than the screen. I have no reason to believe something wrong with the keyboard. It has been mentioned that BIOS disable the keyboard somehow.

Re: Unable To Select A Boot (urgent)

Please see 8f keyboard is plugged in properly. Can you go to Bios by choosing proper key? Only on the screen, keys doesn't work. I do some online search on the subject and try the page down key and ctr+N. None of them work for me. As I have mentioned, neither of the key C and E option work on the s...

On my dual boot installation Cinnamon 18.3 and Windows 10 computer, I am unable to select any boot other than the default one this morning. The up and down arrow keys don't work, nor the c and e key.

Re: Sound Problem On Cinnamon Dual Installation

I have a few observations and suggestions. When it is directly connected with a headphone, the sound is normal. A lot of people would say then use it this way. I understand you're looking for "better than normal" with this device, so I'll do my best to help you get it sorted. I use the DCA on a lap...

Re: Sound Problem On Cinnamon Dual Installation

Okay. Time to get serious. First, delete tsched=0 from that line, save the file and reboot or log out/in as it didn't help and could interfere later. Next, start a video or song and in the terminal type pacmd list-sinks and copy the output to paste back here. Lastly, unplug the DAC and plug your he...

Re: Sound Problem On Cinnamon Dual Installation

This might work. In the terminal type gksudo xed /etc/pulse/default.pa and in the file that opens, find the line that says load-module module-udev-detect Change the line to read: load-module module-udev-detect tsched=0 Now save the file, reboot or log out/in and test your sound.

Re: Sound Problem On Cinnamon Dual Installation

See if this helps. In the terminal, type alsamixer (for me, I then have to press F6 and arrow down to HD-Audio Generic, my default card.) Now you might want to make the window as wide as possible so you can see all the options. Use the right arrow key to move to any columns that have boost in the n...

don't understand what means "The sound is good sometimes and bad in the other time." is it choppy, is it crackling, does it vibrate or maybe you can't hear it good?
Between choppy and cracking, I would decribe that the sound is choppy. I wish that I could upload a sound sample file.
