Booting from a live cd that contains a newer version of such is obviously equally safe & will get the job just fine,
it's just slightly more hassle / time consuming to do so, that's all...
yes i do hate having to reboot from a live usb just to do one thing.

i'll give it a go. thanks

So you should be able to boot the live media and fsck the device instead of installing it on your 18.3 installation.
that is a good idea. simple enough. thanks

Re: shell script saved as binary type instead of program type

Hello, callmejoe. When accessing the script files on your raspberry machine from your local Mint machine over the samba share, you may not have execute permissions on the raspberry located script files. It is also imaginable that your local file-manager simply has got no way of determining the remo...

With partition mounted, what does this return ? 2Tb drive i created one partition as ext4 It actually goes by the "user id" number which is "1000" for the first user, then 1001, etc. But you can allow "group" access or ...

Re: virtualbox not following dark theme

weird thing is virtualbox followed the dark theme before i upgraded it to 6.0. i think it was on 5.2 before that. i'm using cinnamon's mint-y dark theme. Or run Vbox with a QT native dark theme - it won't match but it won't stand out like a sore thumb. VirtualBox -style Fusion %U in a terminal or yo...

Re: custom prompt in TTY

well after re-reading man bash several times i think i got it. it shouldn't work but i edited PS1 in etc/bash.bashrc and it customized my tty prompt.

but according to man bash login shells don't call /etc/bash.bashrc. oh well
