Re: 19.1 will not load from DVD on HP Envy

I got it ... I'm on this machine now ... thank you everyone. It turns out my USB was bad and once I burned my good ISO to a DVD life was beautiful.

Re: 19.1 will not load from DVD on HP Envy

It wasn't that long ago, 18.foo and it was an HP Pavillion and I still have that machine in the other room. What is occurring ... Mint 18.3 boots. Not into Cinnamon desktop to allow me to install, but to a login ... there is no guest login option and I (obviously) do not have a username/password). I...

Re: 19.1 will not load from DVD on HP Envy

What is the username/password?

The last several times I've installed Mint, the ISO booted to a Cinnamon desktop that let me install Mint on the system as one of the options.

So I'm at a loss.

Re: 19.1 will not load from DVD on HP Envy

Yes, it sees it as bootable (I turned off the UEFI and stuff ... it was getting past the part where you pick which boot option -- 64-bit Cinnamon, compatibility mode, etc...and hanging after that ... I'd see stuff scroll and then the Mint logo and then darkness. Okay, I got a clean 18.3 ... it loads...

Re: 19.1 will not load from DVD on HP Envy

Got it, I'll check now, but it doesn't get to the install part -- it doesn't even boot. I'm wondering why it doesn't boot from the DVD or USB. Right now, I'm looking for a clean ISO of 18.3 cuz my clean 19 doesn't boot in compatibility mode.

Re: 19.1 will not load from DVD on HP Envy

It's not SATA, it's SSD. Is that my issue? it's a 4HK24AV -- I'm going back to 18.3 ... basically, I tried 19 and had the same, it starts to load in compatibility mode and then I get a black screen of nothing. Because I can't even boot the ISO media, I can't install. Where in the BIOS settings shoul...

Re: How to verify the ISO image on Windows

I'm getting this message:

Code: Select all

gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.
gpg: the signature could not be verified.
Please remember that the signature file (.sig or .asc)
should be the first file given on the command line.
I'm expecting this is not a pass. After several BAD ISO's I'm trying for a good.

[SOLVED] 19.1 will not load from DVD on HP Envy

Hello all, Got a brand new HP Envy laptop and want to Mintify it. I made and verified my ISO and I go into the boot menu and set it to start from the DVD drive and up comes the menu. I choose to start 64-bit Cinnamon - and it never starts. I think it might be the driver-freeze issue -- as I see an n...

19.1 Cinnamon freezes

UPDATE: The below was my first symptom. 19.1 here. Esoteric as heck, but I'm trying to install a printer on another LAN segment 192.168.19 and I'm on 192.168.20 ... and I can't get it working. It puts in the wrong URI and when I click the button to change it, Cinnamon freezes, except I can move the ...

[Resolved] Oracle Java - Mistakenly Installed 11 - How do I Downgrade? (19.1)

I need to have Oracle because we will be using it in class -- I'm a volunteer teaching assistant. I'm running Mint 19.1 and they're all running Windows 10. I had 8 installed under 18 but it went away with the upgrade to 19 so... I thought, hey, 11 is the newest. That was an error. We're using Eclips...

After upgrade, sonya lost desktop bg image <not solved>

There is a [solved] topic at viewtopic.php?f=90&t=248693 but we're trying to express that it is not solved and because it says that it is solved, we are not getting the help we need. Please, someone, look into this.

Re: [solved] After upgrade, sonya lost desktop bg image

The one that matters is Controls. If you use a Minty theme for controls it's all okay. This is ... suboptimal but I can deal.

Re: [solved] After upgrade, sonya lost desktop bg image

Happy Monday. This is not fixed.

I upgraded to 18.2 today and it's broken.

To clarify. Where you change it is in your home directory under:
.themes/<theme>/gtk-3.0/apps
and the file you change is:
nautilus.css
It's right up there near the top.

Re: Computer stuck in busy box

When i try to run fsck, I get an error that sudo is not bound ... When I try without sudo, it says fsck from util-linux 2.27.1


I guess boot from a rescue and run it that way ...
