Re: Mint not booting after installing on hard drive

I've seen some nvme issues on IRC and it comes down to the motherboard recognition of the device. Mint will see it, detect, and use it, and you can install to it, but if the BIOS doesn't take recognition of it as a bootable device then it won't be bootable(although sure it's still usable once you lo...

Re: Update manager is broken after first update

As for viewing the pic on the network I don't know and that's a whole different topic, not swap though. Sometimes, and it's not too common, although definitely not extremely rare, a kernel upgrade can cause non-booting. And it should be well known that you simply use the grub menu to choose advanced...

Re: Update manager is broken after first update

Just open update manager again and install updates.

It's unfortunate that it ends up looking so scary, but it's simply that one package is left unconfigured and it will be configured on the next pass through. ;)

extremely rare issue, I've only seen it once in the last few years anyway.

Re: [Fix available] Window manager xfwm 4.13.0 broken after last mesa update

just to note, no problems here. I was out of town at the time of this issue, but when I got home I could see a bunch of updates including mesa as well as the xfwm4 downgrade. I installed everything but those 2 and the latest kernel and rebooted no problems. took the mesa update rebooted and no probl...

Re: Mint almost installed, but Nvidia driver issue

yea, I just don't know. Without the user name and password you created I'm not sure what to do in that situation. One point is that if you could NOT boot the usb live session in regular mode but you COULD boot it in compatibility mode then that leans to some issue about incompatible or buggy bios o...

So, let's try to get back to square one so-to-speak. Boot normally(not recovery), and when it fails and blacks out get [ctrl] + [alt] + [F1]. Booted into normal Mint 19.1 xfce.

Re: How to install older nvidia driver

Code: Select all

apt install --dry-run nvidia-driver-430=430.09-0ubuntu0~gpu18.04.1
that's mint 19.1, but maybe also for mint 19. --dry-run tests it first to check for issues.

Re: Mint almost installed, but Nvidia driver issue

you're still going to use nomodeset each of these times, so I'm not going to mention that until the end I will show how to make it permanent and you're not editing in the grub menu, you can just pass by the grub menu as normal. But use nomodeset parameter in grub until you make it permanent, unless ...

Re: Mint almost installed, but Nvidia driver issue

nvidia-304 does not work on Mint 19.x/Ubuntu 18.04, and actually the package was removed in the repositories. And it will not work, even with using ppa or something, -it has to do with deep system package compatibility. There's plenty of internet guides showing how to do nvidia-304 on Ubuntu16.04/Mi...

Re: Uninstalling Program Leaving Remnants

A package is the one responsible for the installing and removing activities. That's within the design of the debian package scheme.

Great! Excellent work! :D

Also, you could use a different font to get a correct wind direction icon showing. It showed correctly with the 'Liberation Mono' I showed in that previous example.. and there's others.

Re: Conky and wttr

I can't see that, but of course you want to use a monospace font so the formatting looks correct.

and I think curl -s or curl --silent might be needed when called from another process so it's not showing some request info.
