Re: Black screen after opening laptop lid (not waking up from being suspended)

I have this same issue on my 19.3 xfce. I open the lid and the login screen comes up fine. As soon as I enter my password I get the black screen. I have noticed that the computer still operates though. I have found I'm able to CTRL+ALT+t to open a terminal and type reboot to at least safely shut it ...

Computer slows to unusable after sleep

Good afternoon everyone. I have recently had an issue with my computer (a cheap HP from walmart dual-booted with Linux Mint 19.3 xfce) becoming borderline unresponsive after waking it from sleep. Initially, I thought it was a VLC issue, because it was happening after keeping a movie running and me f...

Re: Just installed LM to a kid (happy)

I believe if you can find a printer that functions for him and get him using Libre Office, you'll have a convert on your hands. I have had absolutely zero issue with Libre Office. Even receiving a powerpoint created in Windows from my wife, making adjustments to the formatting and sending back was n...

Re: Anniversary

I wish I could say I started long ago. I had dabbled in Linux before but finally dual-booted LM 19.2. The updates are so pleasant. Even the reboots take a maximum of about 3-4 minutes before I'm logged back in working on my cheap-o $200 Wal-Mart laptop. I honest-to-goodness can't remember the last t...

Re: Clean install of LM 19

instead of partitioning your disk first, you could let Windows do the default install then resize the main NTFS partition using Gparted from a live boot of Linux. You then install Linux and make any partition adjustments later using Gparted from the live boot. ... +1 for this. I had trouble with Wi...

Re: How does Linux decide when to require password

Thank you all for your input. I must have set it to auto log-in on startup when I did the install. I will change that when I get a chance, especially since that should eliminate the requirement to enter my password everytime I start up Chrome. I personally would prefer to enter my password on every ...

How does Linux decide when to require password

Hello everyone. I have a question that will probably evolve into many questions. Throughout my reading I've read over and over that Linux asks for your password when changes will be made to the system, which makes sense. That being said, I have 2 questions: 1) Why does Linux not ask me for my login ...

Again portreve, thank you so much for your input! I would be very interested to see the script you did based on Google's. Several years ago, I took quite a few Java classes and that's really what piqued my interest in doing more with the technology at my disposal. I think if I were to get started sc...

Re: My Recent Dual-Boot Experience (Daily Driver is probably changing)

Thanks guys! I did learn quite a bit with your posts. I am very familiar with Cisco iOS so the tabbing to finish commands is very familiar to me and I do use it quite often in Linux. What I was referencing is in Libre Office when I tried to type /etc/ the Libre program used some sort of auto-formatt...

Re: Did you expect that you'll use Linux?!

I've always wanted to try Linux and was always fascinated with the idea of it so I often played around with bootable CD's and live USB's. About a month ago I dual-booted my cheap Wal-Mart laptop with Mint 19.2 to try to use it more. Now, I dread booting to the Windows partition and avoid it every ch...

My Recent Dual-Boot Experience (Daily Driver is probably changing)

Good evening everyone. About a month ago, I dual-booted Linux Mint 19.2 on my cheap laptop from Wal-Mart to continue with my learning Linux and hoping I could replace Windows as my daily driver. Ultimately, I didn't want to force Linux by not dual-booting because I'm in school and my work was always...

Welcome! I also am working on making the jump!

Thank you for the suggestions, and a fair point gm10, I didn't really specify. The programming I'm speaking of will probably be easily done with shell scripts.

Good afternoon everyone. I have dual-booted LM 19.2 and am incredibly impressed so far. Such a smooth and lightweight (compared to Windows) OS and it just works. Thought I had a microphone issue trying to make a Skype call....then I checked my cord and it wasn't plugged in all the way. That damn phy...
