Re: test test test notification

The only website that was set to allow notifications under Preferences>Security>Notifications> Settings was mintguide.org Well, then that might be the culprit. Note that that website is not affiliated with Linux Mint; it's a privately owned domain registered in Murmansk, Russia. I revoked their pri...

I seem to be the only person on the internets that has encountered this piece of crap...I mean code. I only have 3 add-ons. I dont trust any add-ons because I'm not a security expert.

[SOLVED] test test test notification

Twice in the last week I have seen a little gray box pop up in the upper right of my screen, something like the Mint notice I see if my battery was low. This box said "Test test test", only stays there a few seconds. This time I was able to click on it before it vanished and Firefox opened a tab wit...

Re: Live USB 19 resets my clock

Based on your posted timedatectl findings for both your LM installation and the "live" ISO, I don't find it odd at all that no time discrepancy arises between those two environments. But what happens when you switch between your Windows 7 and LM installations? I really think you've been misplacing ...

Re: Live USB 19 resets my clock

This is what I got running timedatectl from the Mint 19 USB. Oddly, the problem seems to have gone away. My clock was fine when I came back into 17.3 $ timedatectl Local time: Mon 2019-03-11 23:00:50 UTC Universal time: Mon 2019-03-11 23:00:50 UTC RTC time: Mon 2019-03-11 23:00:50 Time zone: Etc/UTC...

Re: USB version of Linux

I am looking to get a USB version of the latest Linux Mint. I am just growing too stupid (old) to deal with trying to fix my current Mint and Firefox. Can you point me in the right direction? I don't understand. You can't be much more older or more stupider than me. 1) download 19 iso to your hard ...

Live USB 19 resets my clock

So live usb MINT 19 resets my clock by quite a few hours every time I use it. I have to change it back every time I reboot back to my HD and Mint 17.3 after using the live USB. Does this indicate a problem, or just a quirk? How the hell does it change my clock when changing the clock supposedly requ...

Most probably all the hardware should work.
Your USB drives, display,printer,wi fi, Ethernet are the things you can test.


That sounds too easy, but OK.

How to "test" OS before installation

So you make a live USB, and fire up Mint 19 to see how it works. You know right away if the screen is blank you have problems, or if it looks bad or if you can't get any sound or it sounds awful, or if you can't detect or connect to wifi. But other than these obvious things what (if any) specific "t...

can I make live USB partition?

I dont want to buy a new USB just to try Mint 19. If I try to make a live USB that has plenty of space for it, it tells me all data will be destroyed. Can I make a partition on the USB to solve this or will the partition be destroyed too?

Re: return to windows emotional support group

I like Mint being the underdog, and don't really want it to usurp the MS throne. With too much success will come all of the problems of success, or so I'm afraid. I don't care how popular it is, the only thing that matters to me is that Mint works. I ran badblocks on the partition that Windows seems...

Re: return to windows emotional support group

yes I think keeping Windows at arms length from my Linux machine is a great idea going forward. I don't believe for a second there's anything wrong with my disk that can't be cured by avoiding Windows.

Solved the issue at the home network, it was a network issue not a Bad Medicine issue. I still haven't tried what I said I was going to try for the WPA2 a few posts up...since most of my school work needs to be done in Windows anyway I may not get to it soon

Re: return to windows emotional support group

Well it didn't take long, did it....I've only been using Windows regularly for 5 weeks. Today it decided there are problems on a shared (with Mint) partition, and started a checkdisk process that would have lasted at least a couple hours if I had let it continue. It threw up messages about numerous ...
