Re: LM17.3 - LVM resize, not showing change in volume.

Turns out the logical volume needed expanding as well. First locate the amount of free 'PE': $ sudo vgdisplay --- Volume group --- VG Name mint-vg ...... Free PE / Size 3624 / 14.16 GiB ...... Then you copy this into the lvextend command: $ sudo lvextend -l +3624 /dev/mint-vg/root Size of logical vo...

Code: Select all

umount: /dev/sdc: not mounted
umount: /dev/sdc2: not mounted
umount: /dev/sdc5: not mounted

$ sudo e2fsck -f /dev/sdc5
e2fsck 1.43.4 (31-Jan-2017)
[b]/dev/sdc5 is in use.[/b]

Re: why gnome is so popular?

I started using it a while ago and i really like it now. KDE and Cinnamon try bringing 10+ options to you all the time and it's a mess. GNOMEv3 gives you 1 method of doing everything and expects you to learn it. It's weird at first but you grow used to it, it's a less 'in your face' desktop. GNOMEv3...

Re: i love mint but this make me sad

What are these Blobs supposed to do? Blobs in the Linux kernel are drivers for hardware, they apparently don't open source this code to prevent misuse of their hardware (and theft of their IP). With Mint/Ubuntu these non-free drivers are loaded for you, this is very nice because it means the deskto...

Re: LM18 constantly disconnecting from multiple sources.

Tried disabling the hwencryption module, no luck.

Ended up using Debian GNOME instead. I imagine 17.3 would have also worked great.

Thanks everyone.

Re: Proprietary Software - Is it really an issue?

But what about Adobe Flash? Though it may not be perfect or 'free', it does its job for about 80% of the people actively using it. It ties you to Adobe, it also adds a security risk by running random binaries. I'm not saying it's bad to use free alternatives; but if there's software that has nothin...

Check if you did enable scripts. At least the most important one :)
Not using a script blocker, strange! I just signed it on my phone instead. :mrgreen:
