It will go to customer service and repair and in the meantime I am using an USB keyboard. But before it is fixed, I have a couple of trips to do with this laptop. Hence, I would like to ma...

Re: LM19: software manager asks password several times

Hi. No, the computer was brand new, there has been NO previous Linux install on it.
I did a standard install, not something custom.

Edit : I had forgotten to type the 'NO' in the line above.

Define "just installed".
Yesterday evening. Only changes made to the OS were updates using the Update Manager and installing new programs using the Software Manager.

LM19: software manager asks password several times

hello. I just installed LM 19 Cinnamon. When I install software using the software manager, for each software, it asks several times my password, not because I mistype it, but for some other reason. For as single software, it asked me to type my password up to 8 times ! For a couple of these softwar...

I tried the following : - with *acpi=off* : boots with low-resolution display (800x600) - with *nomod...

Re: Dual-boot Windows 10: cannot boot latest LM but only older versions

Hi. Thanks for the explanation. Rather than installing another distro, I'd rather try installing a version of LM with a newer kernel. Questions : - How (where) did you check support for processor by the kernel, so I can make sure which kernel versions would support it ? - Is there a way to install a...

Re: Dual-boot Windows 10: cannot boot latest LM but only older versions

FYI, after a quick test : LMDE 3 Cinnamon works fine from Live USB without having to tinker anything like ACPI (except the display is in 800 x 600 like Xubuntu 16.04) .

Re: Dual-boot Windows 10: cannot boot latest LM but only older versions

Fast Startup in Win 10 is disabled by going to >Control Panel >Power options. In BIOS Setup, the Boot Menu will display a list of boot devices. To boot the Live Linux USB in UEFI install mode, select and set the UEFI USB as the 1st boot device, and not just select USB. Selecting just USB will boot ...

Re: Dual-boot Windows 10: cannot boot latest LM but only older versions

Have you disable Fast Startup in Win 10.? I believe that is the Fast Boot setting that I have disabled, yes. Did you boot the latest Live Linux USB in UEFI mode via the Boot Menu of BIOS Setup.? It was the latest LM Live USB, yes (downloaded the day before), with the Boot mode in UEFI, yes. Still, ...
