Re: I'm out of patience.

Linux Mint is draining my patience. I am considering going back to windows. Every little thing takes hours of forum searching and asking! Or even days! Someone tell me what makes you prefer Linux? Do you hate Windows that badly? Or are you so experienced in Linux that you can actually perform with ...

I think most apps are in the /bin or /usr/bin directories.

I’m fairly new to Mint and am reluctant to do any more without proper advice. Can anybody help, please? When you say you downloaded and insta...

Re: Ctrl-C during boot

The full message is:

"Press Ctrl+C to cancel all filesystem checks in progress"

When you start Mint, it checks the filesystem to make sure it's ok. You can cancel that using Ctrl+C, but I'd let it do its thing.

Re: [SOLVED, somewhat] Garmin Nuvi 50LM not being recognized

Well, what I did was I installed my old Windows 7 (which came with this laptop) onto a separate partition on my internal backup disk. After a few times, Windows 7 finally recognized the Garmin and I was able to update the maps. I think the problem is a loose connection in the mini USB port in back o...

Re: erase factory recovery

Can you run these two commands from Terminal (similar to Command Prompt in Windows):

Code: Select all

lsblk

Code: Select all

blkid
then copy and paste the results from each command. This will show how your disk(s) is partitioned.

Re: Garmin Nuvi 50LM not being recognized

Strange indeed. Not really. There is a plethora of different sensors that linux cannot read. Sensors: System Temperatures: cpu: 27.8C mobo: 16.8C gpu: 0.0:54C Fan Speeds (in rpm): cpu: N/A What is seen there as the CPU temperature is actually a virtual reference temperature, as is the motherboard t...

Re: Garmin Nuvi 50LM not being recognized

If all else fails, you could possibly switch over to OpenStreetMaps. You'd basically load the maps onto an SD card (if it takes any cards) and let the device read them from that. Hi Moem, Thanks for that suggestion. Yes, my Garmin does take micro SD cards, so that's an great alternative. :wink:

Re: Garmin Nuvi 50LM not being recognized

from my reads of what Garmin says, if the update process is interrupted, the GPS is toast. wish you luck. What I'm going to try is ask my friend if I can try connecting the GPS to his Windows 10 computer. When I connect the GPS to my USB port, the GPS goes into its Garmin Express mode, so I thinkin...

Re: Garmin Nuvi 50LM not being recognized

... But have you tried a factory reset to fix the mounting trouble? Yes, but all that does is set the options to default, not the GPS system. BTW the difference between your mobo temperature and that of cpu , i.e. System Temperatures: cpu: 55.0 C mobo: 0.0 C looks very strange 8) however, has nothi...

Re: 19.1 Xfce not auto mounting CDs

Thanks for replying. Yes, it's checked. Rhythmbox starts but will not auto play the CD because is doesn't recognize that there is a CD until I mount it.
