Re: Boot to USB/DVD from GRUB

Boot to USB/DVD from GRUB

Is it possible to place "boot from usb", and "boot from cd/dvd" options in the GRUB menu? If so, how would one accomplish that? I am running Mint 19.2. Thanks in advance. :D

Re: Solved: Upgrade to T'bird 60.2.1 zaps Lightning Calender add-on

Using Synaptic Package Manager, I first uninstalled everything Lightning related. Then I reinstalled Lightning with SPM. It finally worked after that.

I tried several things before installing with Synaptic Package Manager. I uninstalled with SPM before I re-installed. Now the calendar is back and synced with my Google Calendar. Thanks again for the help. :D
