Re: Bios Malware in 17.3--NOT part of distro

Have I missed it, or, since you're suspect of bios corruption, why don't you pick one of the malfunctioning machines to test the theory, and go to the MoBo website on a good machine and get an updated bios, and flash it in to your test machine. I don't know about your whole stable of MoBo's, but I w...

Re: crash/reboot loop after changing from uefi to csm boot

Hi Schemel, The CD/USB is not offered as a boot option because Secure Boot is enabled, I would presume. Before you can boot from a CD/USB, you must do the following: 1. Upon powering on the laptop, press F10/11/12 {whichever one works on your machine} to enter boot options screen (your model may be ...

Re: Libreoffice spell check madness. HELP!

Hi Jedi. I'm afraid I don't exactly know where to point you for System language repairs. Understand you're using English UI, with Indonesian dictionary. The package at the Software Manager (named something slightly different in KDE?) It provides Indonesian localization of the Office package, and is ...

You'll likely need to post the exact model of your Samsung laptop. There are several hits on Google.com from generically searching "clearing cmos on a samsung laptop". A Youtube video for getting a Samsung laptop USB to be recognized in boot options: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JHmZX-K...

Re: Folding@home-Team Linux Mint-76140

greerd, Yes sir, you are correct. Earlier, at Extreme OC it showed my production as "0" for each time period since 9:00 pm last night. However, I see just in the last couple of hours it finally caught up. Appears to have lumped the missing data in on the 3:00 pm update. EXC_Stats.png

Re: Folding@home-Team Linux Mint-76140

Hmm.... looks like we got some disparity between Extreme OC and FAH. On Extreme OC, I'm missing 212K points and 5 work units. Looks like we all had a hole in time. I had noticed sometime during that period that I couldn't access the FAH stats. Sure hope it catches up to us somehow. Anyone else see t...

Re: Acer Aspire V 15 Defaults to GRUB Command Line on Boot

Kingsocarso, I just did an install of Mint 18 along side of Windows 10 on my daughters new laptop for school/college work. Its a new Acer Aspire E15 (E5-575G), with 256GB M.2 HD. We upgraded it to 16GB ram, and added a WD Black series 1TB HDD. I know you are installing a little newer version of Mint...

mellobob, I don't know which version of Mint you're running, but when I started using Mint 18, I too had the full volume blast at login. Quite hair-raising, and messy too, if you're holding a cup of coffee! You could try this.. I had searched around on the 'net and found this, and tailored the dB le...

thx-1138, Thank you for responding. No, I'm not really worried about bricking it, just the mechanic's mentality in me that says if it works-don't fix it.

....The alternative for Skylake - exclusively for models 78 or 94, stepping 3 - is to install the intel-microcode package, version 3.20170511.1. The package can be installed from the Mint Menu: Administration -> Driver Manager -> intel-microcode...... As of tonight yet, no I do not see that availab...

Yes.. still running 17.3 on my play/experimental laptop. I had made a post here in Jacq1956's thread "Login window", as I thought we initially had the same issue, as my experimental laptop had a autologin of a user on reboot a few months ago, until I reverted back to the mdm greeter screen...

Max, if you would like to make GRUB appear at every boot-up, comment out the "GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0" line in your /etc/default/grub file. (see sample below with that line commented out with a # ) # If you change this file, run 'update-grub' afterwards to update # /boot/grub/grub.cfg. # For...
