Re: Linux refuses to start

Thank you for all the help. @ Lysander666 No it was not familiar. I have installed Linux only 2 times before this with much effort, reading and watching tutorial video's. You are right. I don't understand the cause and why this happens. Like I said before, I'm an end user. @ rjsrjs My data was on an...

Re: Linux refuses to start

I have made a startup usb stick with Mint 19.2 Cinamon now.
I did a new install. That seemed the easiest.
Now I am testing a litle bit.

Re: Linux refuses to start

Oh, I see.
I can make a new startup usb stick and boot up with that. That's a good idea.

Re: Linux refuses to start

I can't do this because I don't understand. I don't know what a console is in Linux or what all this code means.
I'm an end user.
Unless there's an other way I don't see what else than a new install I can do?

Re: Linux refuses to start

I can't use the terminal or any application because I can't log in.
I don't have the install usb stick anymore. Then it seems the only solution is a complete new install with a new stick.

Re: Linux refuses to start

I don't use the wrong password. It's the password I always use.
When I use something else it says 'wrong password'
But when I use the right password, that I always use, it makes the screen goes black for 4 seconds and then the login screen apears again.

Re: Linux refuses to start

No, nothing happens.
Or is it during the black screen that I have to use this combination?

Re: Linux refuses to start

Unfortunately, that doesn't work. Then I get the message 'wrong password'.
When I use the right password it seems the computer wants to startup, because the screen goes for a few seconds to black, but then it returns to the login screen.

Linux refuses to start

Hello, When I started Linux Mint it seemed to work normal. I tried to open a video file but the only thing that happened was my cursor changing in that circle loading symbol. Then I did a restart. During the restart, my computer went to the Linux login screen, while it is supposed to go to the deskt...

Re: Starting hard drives during startup

As Flemur alluded to in his post above "Also you might be able to do this with a GUI thru the 'disks' program". I have multiple HD's and I automounted all the ones I wanted simply by going to : Start menu/Preferences/Disks, then pick the HD you want and click on the gear icon below the HD (automoun...

Re: Starting hard drives during startup

Thank you for the replies. Those codes are too complicated for me. I'm not a programmer. I thought there would be a setting in the preferences that you could turn on / off. I think I will be waiting until those 4 TB ssd's become affordable and use that as a boot disk for everything (system+files). T...

Starting hard drives during startup (solved)

Hello, I have a question about Linux Mint. In my computer I have several hard drives, but when I boot my computer, only the drive with the Linux system is started. The other drives which are used for storage have to be started manually. This is annoying because, to listen to music for example, I fir...

Re: Ejecting usb stick takes a long time

Sorry for the delay. Thanks for all the comments. I think I have the information I need. Terminal and code is not really something I work with because I am an end-user. The usb stick is actually a Samsung EVO SD XC card in an Transcend USB 3.0 adapter. If there's some delay that's ok for now. My com...
