Re: No sound Dell XPS 9700

To undue whatever you've done, use a Timeshift backup. I'm not aware if this may help, but it wouldn't hurt to load Dell's own software repository into stevengarland's Dell XPS, then run Driver Manager . I explain how to install Dell's software repository here https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic....

Disable Secure Boot (and Fast Boot) in your BIOS, because it's known to interfere with device drivers.

Re: How to make default program location on microSD?

Now I want to split the linux installation and programs to separate drives.

Re: [SOLVED] sudo command query

This came from an Ubuntu forum sudo /.'/usr/bin/truecrypt-uninstall.sh' I've looked for sudo commands and I don't understand /. That isn't due to sudo , it's the Bash shell. You interact with Bash whenever your Terminal prompt ends with $ or # . The /. works out as a no-op to Bash, so for example l...

Re: Live install USB mounts read-only when plugged into my working machine

Last time I checked, flash-burner utility UNetbootin allows creation of space on the Live USB that can store and preserve files across reboots, in a writeable partition. This feature applies to Ubuntu derivatives, which includes Mint.
