Re: Thermaltake Duet USB ext drive dock

No one? Bueller? Bueller? This is probably a matter of missing proprietary firmware in the Debian kernel. I crossposted this to the Debian forums too with no joy. The Thermaltake website is not any help either. I solved it by just installing 19.2, and it works perfectly. I still have my Cindy instal...

Thermaltake Duet USB ext drive dock

Hi all--
I have a Thermaltake Duet ( https://www.thermaltake.com/blacx-duet- ... ation.html ) drive dock. LMDE only recognizes one of the drives in it. Mint 17 and subsequent main editions did just fine. Any ideas?

Re: Cinnamon does not autologin or start X after 19.2 upgrade

Just installed LMDE. It seems pretty snappy, but only recognizes one of two drives on my external USB drive caddy (BlackX Duet)

Re: Cinnamon does not autologin or start X after 19.2 upgrade

Thanks. It worked two more times but now won't no matter what I do. I'm giving serious thought to trying LMDE or maybe just plain Debian. I need this machine to be *stable*.

Cinnamon does not autologin or start X after 19.2 upgrade

I upgraded from 18 to 19 to 19.1 to 19.2. Now upon every reboot it gives me a terminal and I have to log in manually, then start x manually. My printer stopped working mysteriously too, but worked after another reboot.

Any ideas? Thanks...!

Re: Linux Mint 19 "Tara" MATE released!

I had to jump through more flaming hoops than a poodle at a circus just to reset my password in order to be able to post a simple "Thank you!" here.

I just painlessly upgraded from 18.3 to 19 today. It was time consuming, but everything went off without a single hitch. Once again, thanks

18.1, Brother MFC-J470DW, able to print but not scan

Hi Folks-- I'm on 18.1/64 Cinnamon. I have a Brother MFC-J470DW printer that'll print just fine, but will not scan. I've gone to the Brother website and deleted, then reinstalled the appropriate drivers twice. Everything worked okay on 17.3, but I had other USB issues that prompted me to upgrade. I'...

Re: How To Add AHCI Module?

:lol:

I've been meaning to do the upgrade to 18.1 anyway, and this was finally an excuse. I had a devil of a time getting my printer configured and working, and I'm still tweaking KDE to look the way I want, but again, so far so good.

Thanks!

Re: How To Add AHCI Module?

Well, I got impatient and just nuked everything & upgraded to 18.1. I still have a lot of configuring to do, but both drives are seen now.

How To Add AHCI Module? (solved)

Hi folks; hoping someone can walk me through this. I am currently using Mint 17.3. I have a Thermaltake BlacX Duet external HDD dock. Mint 17.3 can only see one disk at a time plugged into it. Both drives are seen under Win7. I booted from a live 18.1 DVD and it sees both too, so it's not a hardware...

Re: Trying to install 17.3 dual boot with W10

THANKS!

What was tripping me up was that Windows was not installed in legacy mode. The grub entry is still mislabeled as "Windows Recovery" but W10 starts up now. I can change the menu entry. Thanks again

Trying to install 17.3 dual boot with W10

Hi folks and thanks in advance. I have an E520 Thinkpad that I wiped clean. It has two drives in it, a hard disk and an SSD. I have installed W10 to the HDD. Next I attempted to install Mint 17.3. During the disk selection/partitioning phase it does not detect that Windows is already installed /dev/...
