Re: Dual boot problem (GNU Grub minimal)

Once booted in your Mint installation, open a terminal and run:

Code: Select all

sudo update-grub
When it's done, reboot your machine and see if you get a grub boot menu.

Hopefully this will resolve the issue.

Re: Low Disk Space

If you have set up Timeshift without changing it's default storage location, it tends to fill up the root partition sooner or later since it will store it's snapshots in a directory called timeshift under root. You can even run a disk usage analyzer application (for example baobab) to see what is ta...

Re: Reset BIOS settings, can't get into Linux

Perhaps you could go into BIOS and set Ubuntu/(Mint) as the first boot option. Also disable secure boot.

Re: Unable to Login / Return to Login Screen

If you have your Linux Mint installation media, boot up your computer from it. Open the file manager and locate your LM partition and do some cleaning.

Re: Low Disk Space on Mint 19.2

If you have set up Timeshift without changing the default location for storage of it's snapshots, those can also take quite a bit of space in your root directory.

Re: linuxmint 19.2 Installation dualboot with windows 7, unable to use UNUSABLE free space

Since LM19.x will make a swapfile by default, you won't actually be needing a separate swap partition. If you could opt for accommodating the home under your root partition, then you can make a fourth EXT4-formatted primary partition of the whole of the free disk space and mount it as / in the insta...

Re: linuxmint 19.2 Installation dual boot, unable to use unusable free space

@ manishmeshram51 Legacy bios can only accommodate four primary partitions. So the fourth has to be an extended partition where you can subsequently create logical partitions within that extended space. You can install Linux and the additional partitions for /home and swap to logical partitions. Yo...

When you install the official .deb from https://www.google.com/chrome/, it will automatically add the google repository to your /etc/apt/sources.list.d directory. Of course, all .deb installatuions do that, it's not the same as ppas. Of course not. I did say Google repository in my post meant to be...

Re: Partition on internal SATA device mounted at boot appears removable

However it still leaves unanswered (for me anyway) the question as to why the patition appears as removable. Are you saying that this is something to do with it being mounted in my /home directory? I am not sure why that is the case. To my understanding, it shouldn't make any difference unless the ...

Re: Partition on internal SATA device mounted at boot appears removable

Could mounting the partition under /mnt be an option? In that case you would need to create a new directory, lets call it Data for the sake of example under/mnt: sudo mkdir -v /mnt/Data and use it as a new mount point for the partition in question and modify /etc/fstab accordingly. I guess you would...

Later read an article which suggested resize2fs (included with Mint) might be the right tool, but haven't tested as the issue hasn't come up again.
Gparted does actually run resize2fs as part of it's check function.
