Re: Mount external HDD stopped working

Huh. Last night I tried a reboot, which did nothing. But today, after spending some time in Windows, I again rebooted into Mint and the drive auto-mounted as normal. :?

Thanks, WharfRat. If (when?) this happens again I will try that mount command.

Mount external HDD stopped working

I have an external (USB) hard drive, format NTFS. It used to be the case that when I plugged in the drive, Mint would automatically recognize and mount it. I was copying a bunch of files to the drive via Nemo, and stopped the copy operation before it had finished. This seems to have unmounted the dr...

Re: Mount NTFS partition with me (not root) as owner

<SOLVED> Mount NTFS partition with me (not root) as owner

I have a NTFS partition that I use to access files from both Linux and Windows. During installation of Mint, in the partition editor, I set this partition to have a mount point of /home/chellrose/sharepart. Now the partition mounts beautifully upon startup... but with root as owner. I want to make c...

Re: Installing amdgpu-pro: "Not a directory" error

My primary monitor is a Sanyo TV, model no. FW40D36F. The resolution (which *should* be 1920 x 1080) has the display larger than the screen itself, so that the panel, window menus, etc. are not visible. It seems that the display is only about a title-bar's width too wide, though, as I can move the c...

Re: Installing amdgpu-pro: "Not a directory" error

Thank you. The commands you listed do give the proper output, so it looks like everything is good! Is there no way to change display resolution, monitor configuration, etc. (besides the default Mint utility, which isn't playing nicely with my primary monitor)? I don't mind using terminal commands if...

Re: Installing amdgpu-pro: "Not a directory" error

Huh. The first time I tried that, it gave a "#!/bin/bash not found" error. :? I deleted the directory, re-extracted it from the tarball, and ran your command again. It appears to have run this time... however, when it gets to the end, it gives this message: Processing triggers for libc-bin (2.27-3ub...

Re: Installing amdgpu-pro: "Not a directory" error

Thanks for replying. Regarding bash: I was getting "#!/bin/bash not found" errors when trying to install via the normal method. Removing the shebang line at the top of the install file and then using bash at the terminal is the only way I can get it to execute to any degree. I have made the changes ...

Re: Samba drive access from Windows is very slow/erratic

Thanks. Additional info after more testing: On the Windows side, it looks like the share keeps disconnecting and reconnecting. The little symbol that shows connection keeps switching between red (disconnected) and green (connected). Rarely, if I catch it at a green instant, I can get into a subfolde...

Re: Removing executable permissions from text file on NTFS partition

I missed that option in Nemo. That fixed it, thank you!

I'm not terribly familiar with numerical permissions. Out of curiosity, does the fstab entry you gave remove executable permissions from *all* files in the partition (regardless of file type)?

Thanks again.

Re: Installing Picture Window Pro in Mint 17.2

Wine makes a "C drive" in /home/yourusername/.wine/drive_c. In my experience, this is where wine typically tries to install things by default. You might try opening up a terminal and type ls .wine and see if something called "drive_c" is in there. As for making folders, you can do it in the command ...
