What happens if you manually select a paper source? Does that change anything?

Re: I did lose my grub2, what to do?

When I want to install a new OS, on external USB, with mounting point '/', and as efi the already existing one on the internal HDD, on partition sdb1. Should the 'device for boot loader installation' be 'sdb1', for there is where the efi is, and not 'sdb'?

Re: I did lose my grub2, what to do?

For some odd reason the UUID of a partition on the external USB disk gets another partition UUID, so partition 2 gets UUID of partition 5, partition 4 gets UUID of partition 3, etc. Also strange is that the fstab information obtained via the terminal does not match with the same partition fstab info...

Re: How to vertically split the screen, pane?

I now do get it: I do have to place the cursor in the middle on top of the screen, hold the left mouse button down, and drag the cursor downwards, which results in the pane window being halved. If I do drag the cursor back up again, the split window expands to full screen again. It is just the trick...

I have followed all the instructions, but none of the methods works on mate, there must be something else to make it function.

Re: How to vertically split the screen, pane?

I do have mate, and 'window tiling' is not present. Can it be installed? I did try 'i3', but when I opt for it at login, I am not able to get past a black screen, and have to go back to 'mate' at login.

How to vertically split the screen, pane?

How do you split, or pane, the whole screen, not just the terminator/konsole screen? I did know it, but lost it. I could do it on mate, but not on cinnamon, what is the reason for this?
