Re: In 2020, is it still advisable to NOT install multiple desktop environments?

The only time I've never had a problem with that is by installing Debian with the net install iso and choosing all the different DE's at install. I did that for my old laptop and so far so good.

xenopeeks advise is also one to follow. you won't have any problems with that.

Re: How to open Imagemagick?

It doesn't run under the name imagemagick, rather it uses differently named commands that relate to the function of said command. The only one I use is mogrify but there are many others. What makes it so great is you can do a batch run from the command line or a script and it is a lot quicker than d...

Re: Advice with regard to AMD CPU's

I was actually curious about that statute of limitations for fraud so I looked it up. I know it used to be the way I said but that was years ago. Looks like it is no longer the case though. Might be different in the UK. Under the old limitations legislation, there was an argument that limitation per...

sgtor, You're right about the dishonesty, if they had been open about what they had done I might have felt more inclined to work with them but now I'm going tor a full refund. I think that is a good plan, as others have said here you didn't get what you paid for. I'm not a lawyer but it must be ill...

Re: Advice with regard to AMD CPU's

Even if they honestly couldn't make the A8 work with Linux and went with the A4 and got it to work they were still totally dishonest by not telling you and not charging you less money for the cheaper CPU. At this point who cares if the A8 works with Linux or not. Get your money back! Once you have a...

Re: 19.2:- latest Firefox update causing Main menu to outgrow screensize

I see you're using Mate. Do you or did you have Compiz enabled by any chance? That behavior sounds a lot like Compiz going wonky when you mess with a lot of the different settings. I've also seen Cairo dock do funny things too, do you have that installed?

Re: What I Wish I Could do with Linux Mint

I decided to configure that other computer today and I found this nice tutorial.

That explains it pretty clearly so if you ever do decide to go with vnc there you have it.

I currently do that with vnc, are you opposed to using vnc? I agree that it is not easy as in not plug and play. I've tried a few different servers and got them working so it is possible just not easy. If you can follow a tutorial it should be obtainable. The beauty of it is you can usually set this...

Interesting how people have different preferences. I actually prefer to have those lines show during bootup so I can see what's going on. Anyway let me just add some more clarification. With root access open /etc/default/grub and change this line to look like this. GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet ...

Re: FreshTomato: well worth a try!

I'm using it on my router too and I couldn't more happy with it. I started with DD-WRT years ago but later found Shibby's Tomato worked a bit better for my router so I was using that for a long time.

Shibby's wasn't being updated anymore though so I was happy to find out about FreshTomato.

You simply press the letter q on your keyboard.

Also type h before you exit out of it to see what else you can do with less.

It looks like all your questions were answered.

The only thing I can add is you can also just logout to get the login screen if your wife want's to use her account, instead of rebooting.

The output of these two commands should give enough info for you to figure it out but really lsblk is enough. df lsblk fdisk will give you pretty much the same info sudo fdisk -l So what you're looking for there would be your Linux directories like: / /home /mnt /root /boot you probably only have / ...
