Re: Problem with recent grub2 update

Hi hydrurga, That's good, I'm glad it's now working properly. I didn't know that you don't need the sudo in Mint. I did notice that you didn't include it in apt update and apt upgrade when you asked me to run them. You probably know this already but in Puppy Linux ( the Linux I'm most familiar with...

Re: Problem with recent grub2 update

That looks like it worked fine, Ken. It must have been a glitch as I didn't actually do anything to repair it, but these things happen sometimes. Yes, you can go ahead with an: apt autoremove Note that despite the output message, that command doesn't need a sudo prefix on Mint as apt will ask you fo...

Re: Getting Error with Update Manager

Ah, I didn't expect there to be that much output, but then I don't have an AMD GPU. I'm afraid to say that I personally can't see anything wrong with these entries. Usually an error like that occurs when a preference entry is malformed (extra blank line, leading spaces, missing required field, etc.)...

Re: Problem signing in to my desktop

Hi, and welcome to the forums.

Do you have a non-wireless keyboard that you could connect to the computer and try (so that we can see if that is where the problem lies)?

Re: Changing the desktopTrash Bin icon

You might be able to achieve what you want by replacing the trash-full icon in the directory of the theme you are using with the icon of your choice (you should probably also back up the original icon in case you want to revert at some point). As I see it, when you changed the icon through the prope...

I know it doesn't apply in this case, but if I stumble upon an older post that is unanswered, I now check when the user last visited. I've left some unanswered when I spotted that they never returned after making the first post. If it were a case of Answer A fixes the issue, I'd still post that as ...

Re: [Solved] Autostart desktop entry locations

Hi - running apt content xpad shows there's not a desktop file installed to /etc/xdg/autostart for xpad. It looks like the option to launch on startup is pre-selected in it's settings, so I think it copies the desktop file to ~/.config/autostart on first launch. If you toggle the launch at startup ...

If you add the z it'll still filter stuff (MAC addresses etc.) but without the extra verbosity e.g. inxi -Sz.
One person's verbosity is another person's useful information. ;)

Given AndyMH's comment, a question for the OP. Do you have anything of importance on the destination drive, in any partition, that hasn't been backed up to an external device?

Re: Mint 19.2 Swap?

I don't know how macrium reflect will handle a single partition to another drive that has partitions you want to keep. I would be worried about screwing up the partition table and ending up with an un-bootable system. To be safe you would need to ensure that the partition was exactly the same size ...
