Were you to buy an AIO for around 60 bucks, what?

On newegg or amazon, what all in one scanner/printer would you get that works in Linux for less than 60 bucks? Used would be fine for me, I could go on ebay.

google earth problem

I've tried searching for a solution to this issue, but can't figure out how to term the problem to find the solution. Google Earth runs but the window for the earth itself is only a 1 inch square and won't expand to the window/screen. This has been a problem for a long time, but I haven't tried to f...

Need an audible low battery alarm

So far, he hasn't broken the linux install, which is really good, but he's let his battery go dead a few times and it doens't see well and is very NON savvy. I need an audible alarm for when the battery gets low for Linux Mint Cinnomon 18.3

Re: ACER: No Bootable Device

Update.

I returned the computer to the owners, I'll wait and see how long this takes until another problem.

The was a complaint about passwords being needed, I explained that it's the key to him not getting infected. Even somewhat smart people don't seem to understand security.

Re: ACER: No Bootable Device

I can't do that now? I still have the computer.

When I went into the UEFI and tried that link there was no shim file that appeared as a choice. Is Shim not in the current Mint Cinnamon?

Re: ACER: No Bootable Device

Ok, Mint Cinnamon INSTALLED once again. BIOS set based on this link: https://itsfoss.com/no-bootable-device-found-ubuntu/ but of those three listed files, only the grub one appears and another. I've tried using either, and both work, the other one I don't have the name at the moment, I'll post later...

Re: ACER: No Bootable Device

Hmm, there is no hokmanager or shin64 appearing in that BIOS step, but the Grub appears and one other with an EFI name. I opted for the Grub but it boots super slow, I'll try the other one in a bit. He wants to keep trying Linux.

Re: ACER: No Bootable Device

I got it! Now to wait and see if he still wants Linux. This time I will use the tutorial we discussed here if he wants Linux and I will remove supervisor password. He did indeed let the computer go completely dead dead dead. Despite this and despite unplugging batter, pushing battery reset inside ca...

Re: ACER: No Bootable Device

Got the computer and have been working on it. Somehow, the BIOS password doesn't work (I saved it and know it) or the father changed it unknowingly. I've tried disconnecting the main battery by opening the case and unplugging it, and pushing the battery reset button for 60 seconds, no luck. BIOS has...

Re: ACER: No Bootable Device

Explanation: I haven't been brought the system in question yet, the person is a very busy person and we've had 2 NorEasters and another is coming here. When I finally get a chance to work on it I promise I intend to update about what I needed to do.

Re: ACER: No Bootable Device

Ok, I clicked on the lock symbol (forgot about being able to do that) and choose to remove protections for that site. It loads that way.

No, not using that right now. Also, I try choosing http without the s and it keeps putting the s back when I hit enter, what is the trick there?

Re: ACER: No Bootable Device

Question to anyone reading this thread, if I gave the site permission with ghostery and ad blocker plus, could firejail or something else be preventing this entire site (and the page in question) from loading fully in my two Linux installs, even inside Windows VMs: https://laptopmedia.com/specs/ Doe...

Re: ACER: No Bootable Device

Ok, page loads on my bare metal Windows system I set up no long ago. So some security measure I have running must be blocking it. I see there is no battery indeed, in fact, accessing everything looks pretty simple, just remove the whole bottom. I did see on another site that there is a pinhole in th...

Re: ACER: No Bootable Device

Now this is weird: Site only shows some text, no graphics and page doesn't load properly or fully, on my laptop or desktop, even in a Windows Virtual Box and even with Edge. My ISP? Very very odd. I'll go try the Windows computer I just set up and see next, just a moment.

Re: ACER: No Bootable Device

FF or Chrome on Both computers in Linux. I think I know that site from years back, they do tutorials on laptops and desktops, with lots of photos, yes?

I wonder if it is firejail, I have no idea. I'll see if it loads in Windows maybe.
