Re: Is this the error message im looking for?

"File not found" means you're either running the command in the wrong directory (i.e. linuxmint-whatever.iso is saved somewhere else) or you typo'd something (e.g. linuxmint-whatever.iso vs. Linuxmint-whatever.iso ). Nothing jumps out in the spelling, so I guess you didn't download / save ...

Re: Backup/sync folders between drives

Hopefully it's a case my random testing just misbehaved, and it's all working as necessary for you (but also better to catch it in case it's not, so it can be fixed)

Re: Arrange by creation date

Re: Is this the error message im looking for?

You're running the command wrong... probably a "special" character replacing the dash... certutil -hashfile linuxmint-whatever.iso sha256 edit: reread the picture. the issue is the space in linuxmint-whatever (5).iso . Rename the file to remove the space, or put quotation marks around it.

Re: How to run Roblox using wine?

Ok, so, it worked around 3 years ago then they blocked it, then unblocked it and now blocked it again? The devs blocked it, then someone worked around it (blueberry or bubblegum or ... something like that?) then they fixed the issue that let the workaround circumvent the original block. In other wo...

Re: Grub issue when Mint usb drive removed

sounds like you installed grub to the main harddrive at some point, and now it falls over when it can't find what it's expecting.

Re: Any tips on setting up & having more than one user account?

Administrator is part of the group sudo (and other things like lpadmin for printer maintenance, plugdev for hotplugging devices, etc.)
User is only part of their group, without any special group permissions added.

Re: unknown error when mounting external ssd (NTFS Formatted)

Where do you see this error message? Are you running mount in a terminal? a GUI thing (disks, or letting it automount)? At the time of mounting by the graphical interface Next time it happens, use the mount command in terminal -- it'll usually give a more useful error message, like "The dirty ...

"input/output error" generally means the drive's dying (or the filesystem is *very* damaged, but not flagging itself as such)

well, if the portal isn't coming up in FF, it sounds like it's an issue with that network's portal redirection. What happens when you open firefox and try going somewhere?

Re: Does installing Qt apps in Mint Xfce (or other GTK DE) affect performance, disk space etc?

What would be the effects on performance and disk space of installing Qt apps in Mint Xfce? Well, you'll need to install the Qt (shared) libraries at least once, so at least that first app will pull down a fair bit in the way of dependencies... but we're talking maybe a couple hundred MiB or so (no...

Re: Missing drivers for USB

plug in the device that's having trouble and run sudo dmesg to get the details of what the kernel sees as it tries to enumerate the device. Should be about 25-30 lines , copy/paste that to a post. Do each device on it's own (i.e. plug one in, get the details, plug the other in), this help avoid the ...
