Re: Русская раскладка по умолчанию Linux mint 19.1 Mate 64-bit

У менят тоже изначально были проблемы с этим, но, похоже, сейчас всё поправили. Была какая-то накладка в панели настроек... Я зашел через Меню по
такому пути: Preferences-> Languages-> Keyboard и все установилось без проблем.

Пысы. Извиняйте, только что заметил что у вас Мате, у меня корица.

Re: Mint 19.1 doesn't recognize USB sticks, cards etc. Dell N5010

@ jglen490, yes, I think you are right. I have installed the 19.1 about 5 days ago. I also noticed that the updates keep coming at the moment and I hope the situation will rectified soon. The same version is installed on my desktop computer (Asus, i7) and the usb devices are recognized immediately.

Mint 19.1 doesn't recognize USB sticks, cards etc. Dell N5010

I have run into a very strange problem. My Mint 19.1 (Cinnamon) doesn't recognize usb devices plugged live, while the system is running. It concerns USB memory sticks, sd memory cards, memory cards plugged into the card reader; my usb mouse, when unplugged and plugged in again, is not recognized as ...

CoodReader under Mint 19.1. How to avoid annoyances

This is just a little reminder to the users of CoodReader who are running into a problem of CoolReader losing customisation and resetting itself to the original interface after exit. It does not preserve background colour or specially selected fonts. I have hoped it would be addressed by its develo...

Re: Only see my harddisk in disk utility

NewbieKai , are you trying to plug the external hard drive after your system is up and running? If so try to plug in your external USB drive BEFORE starting the computer. I have very similar symptoms on my machine, all my usb storage devices (cards, usb sticks, usb mouse) refuse to be recognised if...

I am trying to install ebook reader CoolReader3 on Mint 19.1, So far no luck. Tried all the versions. The installer keeps telling me "Error:dependency is not satisfied" I noticed there is no option to install it from depositories either. There is an option to install FBReader, but I don't like its i...

Re: Mint 19.1 doesn't show any language switch

gm10 "Keyboard options" - I can't see such an option anywhere. :(

Btw, the keyboard sign shows up while I am trying to add it in a panel editing mode, but when I lock it the sign disappears.

The option Keyboard is shown on the "Add Applets to the Panel", however while trying to add it the bottom corner (where the clock is) quickly moves but nothing happens. The restart doesn't help.

@ kato181 , thank you! I am very glad it runs now (sort of.. I still have a problem with a language switch on the panel - there is none ) :-) I wouldn't call it like that since all my previous dual boot linux-windows installations for the last 10 years used to go without this problem. I think the pr...

Re: I was updating my OS from Linux Mint 18.3 to 19.1 and got black screen. Kindly help.

@rohitkav123, I guess you have to update 18.3 to Mint 19 first, and only then proceed updating to 19.1. Though, as I have learned from my own experience updating from 18.3 to 19 is also a tricky business - it updated but with many errors. I did a clean install instead.

[SOLVED] Mint 19.1 doesn't show any language switch

Mint 19.1 doesn't show any language switch on the working panel. All the language packages are downloaded, installed and the computer rebooted.
In the earlier Mints it was enough just to add an applet from "add an applet to the panel"... Puzzled.

Yes, the hard drive is the 1Tb Hitachi... the hard drive on the other laptop where 19.1 refuses to install is Toshiba. It wo...

Besides there is the same situation with a similar Dell laptop and it has a bit smaller hard drive, but also plenty of free space. So it is not the case. But thank yo...

Thank you for the answer. In my laptop bios I can see only 2 options for boot device mode AHCI and Ata. No UEFI mode. In other words you imply that without destroying my Windows partition I wouldn't be able to install Mint 19.1 and dual booting now is not possible at all? That's sad, I really wouldn...
