Some Config Questions About Linux Mint

I've been using Linux Mint 19.1 XFCE for a while now, but there are some things I miss about Windows 10. 1. One thing is that when I close an application in Windows (Firefox, MS Word, whatever) and then reopen it, the application window reopens with the same size and location it had when I closed it...

Re: Removing Excess Windows 10 menuentries from GRUB Menu

I'm now taking a different approach to this... Instead of wrestling with grub configurations (since most of it's automatic) I've come at this from a different direction. This is what I did: fired up Aeomi Partition Assistant, deleted the extraneous partitions (including EFI) from all drives except t...

Re: Windows 10 recovery found, but not the OS

I've been wrestling with a similar problem, but... From looking over your data, my first suggestion is: boot into Linux, execute the command: sudo update-grub , and reboot. Now you should see a bunch of entries for booting windows. Ignore most of them and look for something like: Windows on /dev/hdd...

Re: Triple-boot Windows 10, Linux Mint 19.1, and Trident (BSD)

since it's Trident, that seems to be an issue, here, - can you now dual_boot the other two systems ? and then run Trident in an Virtual Box ? would that be an solution ? Thanks, Pierre, but I've had to put this on the back burner for now. When I do get back to it, what I'll be trying is: install Wi...

Re: Removing Excess Windows 10 menuentries from GRUB Menu

You've got the right general idea about turning off 30_os-prober , but before doing that, you need to insert the menu entry items that it generates in grub.cfg for "Windows 10" and "System Setup" into 40_custom and then run: sudo update-grub Hmm... According to /boot/grub/grub.cfg, System Setup is ...

Removing Excess Windows 10 menuentries from GRUB Menu

Title pretty much says it. I have several GRUB menuentry's for Windows, each named for the partition it occupies. Only one is currently valid, so I'd like to configure GRUB to ignore the rest, leaving me with a menu similar to this: Linux Mint Linux Mint with boot options Windows 10 System Setup Fro...

Re: Triple-boot Windows 10, Linux Mint 19.1, and Trident (BSD)

I ran out of time and gave up... for now. Reasons: I installed Trident by itself so I could evaluate it, and frankly, I'm not a fan of the design or how the desktop/menu system is organized. Trying to get FreeBSD (11.2, 12.0, or the derivative Trident) to cooperate is a nightmare. I found nearly a d...

Re: Boot Partition Confusion

The alphanumerical sequences shown are your partition UUIDs. If you run lsblk -f you can see how those UUIDs translate to your devices, so you'll know which partitions exactly are involved here. Sorry, I'm not seeing the correlation. There are lots of alpha-numeric sequences in lsblk's output, but ...

Over the last few months as I've bought the SSDs and installed them, I've moved Windows from one drive to another, installed Mint a couple of times, and the result i...
