What is needed to do to use them in Linux?
Just plug them in. Linux can read and write Windwoes format disks.
I totally agree, leave them as they are.
this will allow you access to the files you already have stored on the USB drives.

Then on the right side of the backup, click the mouse there and type in a Description. I put in things like Prior to Kernel xyz or PhotoShop whatever is pertinent to you. that way, ...

Re: WIFI is connected but Internet is not working

It would be a lot better if you would install a good WiFi router. windows has a penchant for blocking everything it does not know about to the point you must purposely assign a waiver to allow a device to connect. the Sharing rules are a mess, I quit trying to make it work. Netgear has an affordable...

Re: Reasons against Timeshift for backing up home directory

I have Timeshift set for automatic Daily backups, and it keeps only 5 copies.

/home is done manually by me to a separate drive.

Re: What kernel is in 19.2 ?

I just learned that the OEM SSD is a SATA M.2 and is very easy to get to w/o disassembling the laptop. So, I ordered up a 1TB SATA M.2 SSD from Crucial Memory. alas, that model is out of stock, shipping delay is 7 days.... ah well, maybe when it arrives, 19.2 will install ? I just finished up instal...

Here's something else to try that I've been reminded of today to work with an incompatible BIOS, this masquerades your system as a Windows system that's supported by your ACPI tables (just copy & paste the entire thing, it'll create a script that modifies your GRUB kernel command line, the last lin...

Re: What kernel is in 19.2 ?

I don't know the cause of the kernel panic and possibly a higher kernel release would be a solution but it's too easy to point a finger at that. 4.15 should work fine just looking a the components of in the laptop. As suggested by others, trying Ubuntu 18.04.3 would be helpful—if that does boot wit...

It's hot. I like a little bit of hot weather, when it is not humid. But now it is hot AND humid. Even at night it wont cool off. I aint built for hot temperatures.

The ASUS TUF Gaming FX705G laptop ( specs ) has an Intel i7-8750H processor.

Is the kernel in 19.2 newer than the one in 19.1 ISO? and, will the 19.3 release contain the latest kernel at that time? and who is controlling what video adapters the kernels come with?
