Re: Searched top Linux distros...

@Moem:

This is what I got as a result. The row of icons showing each distro scrolls and shows more distros. Mint isn't there. I was just amazed.

Searched top Linux distros...

I had some time and wanted to look up "top linux distros" and did this in Google.

A list of 38 "Linux distribution software" came up. Mint was NOT among them.

What? :evil:

Re: Scanner non rilevato.

Could you also post the result of this too:

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxz


and paste the results in between the Code tags (Code button is found above where you type your replies)

It would be helpful to get an overview of your system.

Re: uefi mode vs bios mode, non booting os installs?

I'm wondering if there's a function key that you can tap while booting in order to get "manual" boot options. For my HP, my function key is F9. I can hit F9 when booting and choose to boot a Linux USB flash drive which shows me the option of directories to boot EFI or I can boot non-EFI. H...

May I ask why you want to install at home, then insert into pc on boat?

In my opinion, it would be easier to do the install directly when on the boat's pc.

... MSI 760GM-E51 There is an updated bios from 2011, but using their own M-flash tool, so far cant figure it out... You can put the BIOS update (which is a zip file) onto a USB flash drive that is formatted as FAT32 and then update the BIOS from the M-flash tool. Page 3-24 from the manual. https:/...

Re: Scanner non rilevato.

When you downloaded the file, hplip-3.17.6.run , did it go to your Downloads folder? It should have. If so, you'll need to change to that folder when in Terminal. Use this command: cd ~/Downloads (The command cd means change directory.) Then try running the installation with: sh hplip-3.17.6.run

La prima cosa che avrei dovuto dirti è che non parlo italiano. Sto traducendo con Google, quindi scusate la grammatica. Posso provare. Non sono molto esperto in Mint, ma se posso aiutare, lo farò.
