Re: Cannot Load NVIDIA Driver

Nvidia gives you a .run file and I ran it. That was a mistake. Try this reliable PPA instead: https://easylinuxtipsproject.blogspot.com/p/nvidia.html#ID1 (item 1) [Solved] I ran: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa Then: sudo apt-get update Unfortunately, while the driver manager did u...

Re: Cannot Load NVIDIA Driver

I'm having this exact same issue. I have a geforce 1080ti and right now my resolution is maxed at like 640x480 since rebooting. Everything was fine till the other day I was having graphical issues in TW3K (which only showed up after it had been working fine). Up till then I had been using the basic ...

Autoconnect to VPN and block all non-vpn traffic

Hey all, relatively new to mint. I use protonvpn via openvpn for VPN connection in mint. The issue i am finding is that there is no easy way to have it automatically connect to the VPN on start-up. Further, I have multiple country VPN"s that I have setup that appear in the network manager GUI, and i...

Re: Please Help! Recovering encrypted home

OK, the first priority is to recover your important stuff. You'll need an external drive e.g., flash drive or disk media with enough capacity. Form the live media sudo -i /sbin/cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sdb3 sdb3_crypt mount /dev/mapper/mint--vg-root /mnt Now follow https://forums.linuxmint.com/view...

Re: Please Help! Recovering encrypted home

Try the BIOS boot order - you should be able to set the 3TB as the first If I do that, it will not boot. It just forces me into bios again if I disable the working drive. If I don't disable the working installation, and I set the boot order to 3TB first, 1TB second, it fails to boot 3TB and then ju...

Re: Please Help! Recovering encrypted home

Don't do any deleting yet. You can't have two encrypted systems because the vg names are not unique. Enter the following sudo mkdir /media/sda1 sudo mkdir /media/sdb2 sudo mount /dev/sda1 /media/sda1 sudo mount /dev/sdb2 /media/sdb2 ls /media/sda1 ls /media/sdb2 And paste back the ls lines Sorry I ...

Re: Please Help! Recovering encrypted home

Don't do any deleting yet. You can't have two encrypted systems because the vg names are not unique. My point was more if I removed the working installation from the equation by removing that SDD, or just disabling in bios. Then from livecd trying to repair the boot of the previous installation on ...

Re: Please Help! Recovering encrypted home

I don't know if you can boot to the first installation. I'm confused as to why you don't have an ext2 boot partition on sda or sdb :? It's possible to manipulate the grub menu, but I'm not sure what you have on sdb1 and sda1 since neither is ext2. Try from the live media sudo mkdir /media/sda1 sudo...

Re: Please Help! Recovering encrypted home

It's not mapping sdb3 probably because the vg names are the same. So you will have to boot the live media and try it again: sudo -i /sbin/cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sdb3 sdb3_crypt # This requires the encrypted disk password NOT your user password. Then paste back ls -la /dev/mapper I have to attend ...

Re: Please Help! Recovering encrypted home

It would make it a lot easier if you boot to the operable installed system so I can identify which one is running. And return sudo blkid and sudo pvdisplay -C (capital C not c) From the working drive: Sudo blkid: dev/mapper/sda5_crypt: UUID="4T0tlj-6vWm-ZmjT-L3QT-n5n3-HTzz-vFCK5V" TYPE="LVM2_member...

PHEW! Alright, so I got myself into a situation after installing a second copy of Linux onto a secondary drive. This for some reason rainbows up my initial installation so that it wouldn't boot. Although I could boot into second installation, when I decrypted the first drive I discovered that my use...
