Re: How to deal with (G)Rsync output.

I was very happy to hear that an alternative actually exists! The lack of decent GUI software is hurting Mint efforts to be an alternative desktop for Apple and Windows. Test run of Unison however was incredibly slow. I left it running for a couple of hours to see it was not even at about 10% (educa...

Re: “Failed to open \EFI\BOOT\mmx64.efi - Not Found”

I agree with AndyMH that this is a secure boot problem. Turning off secure boot can be tricky in some UEFI/Bios. Sometimes just turning secure boot off does the trick, like it should in my opinion. But you may not be able to do that without setting an admin password first. Sometimes windows OS and o...

Re: How to deal with (G)Rsync output.

My suggestion is you either look into the unison option..... Thanks for the suggestion! Have installed that for a test now. Unison-gtx version works, Unison without gtk doesn't start at all. It's now doing its first scan, at a very slow pace and when I minimize the window, activate it or resize it,...

Re: How to deal with (G)Rsync output.

Then grep the massive log to display the lines you are interested to see. If you have thousands of files to be updated, well... what can you do, you will have to review that as there are thousands of files :lol: You've pinpointed my problem. I can't see a way of grep being able to get out of that l...

Re: How to deal with (G)Rsync output.

First and most important question, how do you check the output to see which files and folders are to be created, moved, deleted or updated on the source and target location? I need to review what's going to change, it has saved me from stupid mistakes many times. With (G)Rsync I get massive logs. I...

Re: Installing LM on DELL I15-5999 Stuck In Boot Loop

Excuse me. It is Linux Mate. I believe the issue is how to get the computer to mount from USB as I am uncertain how to do that in UEFI rather than in Lagacy? You mean boot from usb with LM Mate iso. I misunderstood, thought it already booted... What password is missing? The installed OS, Windows an...

Re: Installing LM on DELL I15-5999 Stuck In Boot Loop

Thank you for your response. As you may have surmised, I do not know what I am doing. You should use UEFI mode. I don't know Ubunte Mate (it's another distro and desktop). If the usb boots, you can install. If only one drive in the computer and you want to just delete windows completely and erase a...
