Re: A good VPN (minimum requirements)

I don't understand what you're asking for....a clickey-clickey desktop button to toggle your VPN service? In my knowings about VPNs that work on OS, to get a killswitch, means to install an application other than openvpn, or in addition to openvpn, so if the VPN gives no application for Linux then ...

In a few year's time petrol/diesel vehicles will be legacy vehicles because they become outdated. A legacy (or classic) printer is one that requires a vendor driver. New printer technology does not use vendor drivers.
oh yes, ok, that's special to printers, so

Re: And so update grub is not able to fix a dual boot ?

It looks like GRUB is still pointing to LM 19.3 so using /boot/grub/grub.cfg in sda1 for its menu. It is a rare thing as, on Installing LM 20, GRUB would be pointing to your new LM 20 installation (unless it has failed or you have ran Boot Repair reverting changes). So (to be sure): -First, check t...

Re: How to repair dual boot destroyed by Timeshift #noUEFI

It doesn't work

When I boot I get

>> Linux 20
>> Linux 19
>> System setup > gives an error message

I have just to reinstall from the beginning I guess

when I chose the windows disk at boot, it works without any issue
