Re: Installing TeamViewer

I always have so many problems each time I try to install a new program. I think it's one of the main problems with Linux. It's so easy on Android, Windows, Mac, but keeps being a pain in the ass on Linux. 1-Software Manager: when I try to search for a program, I only have a grey window and nothing...

Re: please help me intall Wine

Start Configure Wine from Mint menu
See what the default Windows version it is using. I would try Windows 7.
Then try a game.

Re: Using Windows 10 was like...

I just had to fire up Windwoes 10 to update my NavMan GPS before going on a 3000km road trip next weekend. Unfortunately there's no way to update the device without Windwoes. After the customary 1 hour long forced upgrade of the OS, using Windwoes felt like I was bathing in someone else's dirty bat...

Wife tried to use it once, it was an unmitigated disaster. I think the address put in was off a bit, set for w. instead of west street something. It lead to a bad part of town, ended up in front of a dicey looking bar. Now she prints out directions and looks at a map.

Re: Will a Linux "Live" USB Drive Wear Out? If so, When?

The heart of my question is answered in the quoted text above, I think, because it differentiates between the typical LM installation that is "write once" and "read only" using more common methods like Rufus (which I used), and a "full install" where I assume the computer treats the USB drive as if...

Check to see what's starting in the Startup Applications.

If you can, post a snapshot of the window.

Re: Backup Tool app list doesn't show copyQ

Try running this command in Terminal first:

Code: Select all

dpkg --get-selections > mylist.list
Then open Backup Tool, Software Selection. See if copyQ is listed for backing up.

Re: hi there

Did you verify the Mint ISO that you downloaded?
https://linuxmint.com/verify.php

Try using Rufus or MultiBoot in Windows. They are very reliable in creating Live USB drives.

Before creating the flash drive, be certain to verify the ISO. https://linuxmint.com/verify.php Try Rufus.

Re: hi there

Hi there hix,

Açorean-american here!

I would create a Live Mint USB flash drive and boot from that and see if your graphic card is recognized and works.
