Re: Command 'code' not found

Try /usr/share/code/code The deb package doesn't appear to put the executable in the default locations that would be in your $PATH so you need to launch it with the full path. Ah, my learned friend, you overlooked the postinst: ;) # Symlink bin command to /usr/bin rm -f /usr/bin/code ln -s /usr/sha...

Re: Menu Search

It depends on your desktop environment, which you haven't told us. My above example is from MATE, as I said.

Re: Removing a Kernel with Broken Package...UGH

Ok, so your installed kernel meta is -47, your active kernel is -54 and the latest available is -58. So again, how are you applying kernel updates? Or rather: How you should be doing it is by installing the offered kernel update in Update Manager (or apt upgrade on the command line, if you prefer). ...

Re: power management from terminal?

I have never heard of a bug by the Update Manager preventing the suspend function from working or the Update Manager resetting the power management settings. For 19.2 I had changed it so that Update Manager prevents shutdown and reboot via systemd while automation tasks are running. But suspend rem...

Re: Its possible to install EFI Grub without whole Linux, if yes how?

Doesn't sound like a big issue, how often do you need to change the NVRAM? You add your new system once after installation and you're done with it. You can do it manually via efibootmgr if your distribution's installer didn't take care of it.

Re: Issues with data HDD, kern.log and syslog explode to 9+ GB

Is there any downside to upgrading to the 5.0 kernel? I've been sticking with the Mint standard, thinking later versions would be a beta situation. Not that 5.0 is beta, but specifically running Mint on 5.0. Is it just a matter of LTS? From the support perspective yes, it's only a matter of the sup...

Re: Its possible to install EFI Grub without whole Linux, if yes how?

UEFI has a built-in boot manager so if you want to minimize your footprint why not just use that? Boot device selection is usually accessed via Esc during boot but your system may have a different hotkey like F8 or yet something else. Its not such simple, some desktop board can select UEFI boot ent...

Re: This script will notify you if a reboot is required after automatic updates

I seem to remember also having gotten notifications about linux-generic in the past (meaning reboot-required.pkgs listed linux-generic), but I could be completely wrong about that. I've always checked the update history after such a notification from my script to find out that indeed the kernel had...

By the way, I thought afterwards, there's also stuff like:

I'm also using 5.2.8-050208-generic and my battery life is perfectly fine. Feel free to try another series though, 5.0 is a supported series, for example. Otherwise I'd st...

Latest kernel is 4.15.0-58-generic, also have 55, 54, and 20 available. Tried recovery mode with 20, it had the same COMRESET error Ok, so now you know it's not a regression in the 4.15 series. Next step is to try the latest kernel in the 5.0 series (Update Manager > View > Linux kernels). Also che...

Sure, you can install any desktop environment or file manager you like, see Software Manager. E.g. Caja is MATE's file manager and is fairly similar. They both are forks of Nautilus. Once you installed one you can make it the default. I'm not too familiar with Cinnamon but there should be a tool to ...
