Re: bit of computer surgery, now grsync not working....

.grsync properties: Owner: Folder access: create and delete files Group: [me on this computer] Folder access: none File access: --- Folder access: None File access: --- This is exactly what I've got as well. So it seems to be in order. Check the permissions for grsync.ini inside the folder as well.

Re: bit of computer surgery, now grsync not working....

Just a hunch:
Check the ownership/permissions of .grsync in your user directory.

You could also check if everything in your user directory is owned by your user:

Code: Select all

find $HOME ! -user $USER -type f
If there is any output, you could fix it with:

Code: Select all

sudo chown -R $USER:$USER /home/$USER

Re: Any good screenshot app that allows me to Edit the Picture Taken?

No. Go >> https://github.com/DamirPorobic/ksnip/releases and chooseksnip-1.5.0-continuous-amd64.deb.

Once downloaded, right-click on it and from the menu choose Gdebi to install it.

Edit: scroll down the page a bit and choose ksnip_1.4.0-1_amd64.deb instead which is the current stable release.

Click on the arrow.

PS. An Appimage won't need to be installed on your system. You just make the file executable and run it as a "portable" app.

Re: 13 Most Promising New Linux Distributions to Look Forward in 2019

you want to know how i know it's a one man team? https://arcolinux.info/contact/ No, I just wanted to know why it would disqualify a full-featured OS to be a distro. To me it doesn't matter if it is developed by one or many as long as it is capable of doing no less than any other OS:es. Actually I ...

Re: 13 Most Promising New Linux Distributions to Look Forward in 2019

out of all those i'd pick ArcoLinux but it's not really a distro so much as a one man's hobby Could you elaborate a bit your thought on what counts as a distro and what not? Is the fact that Arcolinux is a fully functional OS not enough for it to be qualified as a disro? Most probably many distros ...

Re: SOLVED: I added a new SSD to my laptop. I don't see it listed under Devices and cannot access it at all

That's great!

If you think you need the new device to be auto-mounted at boot, then you will need to create a new mount point (a dirctory) and make an entry for the device in your /etc/fstab defining where (and how) it is going to be mounted.

Re: I added a new SSD to my laptop. I don't see it listed under Devices and cannot access it at all

If you have already created a partition table, one(some)partition(s) and have formatted it (them), then the next step would be to mount it at a convenient mount point in the file system in order for it to be accessible. You could use Gparted to create the partition table, the partitions and do the f...

Re: Can't boot into copy of Linux Mint on other hard drive

No, it cannot. My suspicion was rather regarding the existence of a boot option for Ubuntu/Mint in Bios. But what you said above that there is only one option there, namely Windows Boot Manager rules that out.

Re: Can't boot into copy of Linux Mint on other hard drive

Had a thought, maybe too simple ?, but "maybe" the problem is in the BIOS boot order, normally the order is; 1st boot device = cd drive, 2nd boot device = first HDD (NORMALLY sda). (many of us have moved USB HDD to top of the list, or otherwise altered the default boot order, beside the point) Anyw...

Re: Can't boot into copy of Linux Mint on other hard drive

Could it be an issue that secure boot is enabled in the UEFI settings? Maybe I should just try again. Disable the "Secure Boot" in Bios settings. And also Fast Startup from within Windows.

Re: ? home Partition

Yes. If this is a UEFI install you would need three partitions: 1. EFI system partiton of about 128-256 Mib FAT32 (If this is a dualboot with Windows in UEFI-mode, then just use the already existing EFI partition) 2./ partition 25-30 GB should be sufficient for normal use. 3. /home In the installer,...
