Re: Curious Techy

Hi, Good idea to try Linux Mint without windows. About the trouble you are facing. I'm not sure I understood what is it related to. If you want to only install LM on your computer, just follow the same procedure you did when installing it in dual-boot without the prior windows installation. It shoul...

Re: keyboard shortcut reassignation

Hi hydrurga , Thanks for your advices. Actually, it's what I did. I defined a new shortcut in "Keyboard shortcuts" which says : Home Folder ->Mod4+E (or Super+E) So the shortcut is not "open your preferred Files Manager" but "open your Home Folder" and I cannot reassign it to another Files Manager j...

Safely, no need to install the different versions. instead, you can try live versions, which means versiosn who runs on a USB key but runs as if it was installed on you...

Hi hydrurga, I already changed the default file manager in "preferred applications" but doesn't change the behavior when I use the shortcut :( About the shortcut itself, maybe it not a default shortcut so one have to assign it in "Keyboard sortcut" section, I don't remember. Actually, it's the only ...

Re: Advice Please

Hi Caroll Smith

Maybe, it should be a good idea to change your title and replace it with something more specific as "how to install Mint on a [computer model]"

This way, other people facing the same trouble than you can easily find the post and use the comments and advices.

Re: pc reboots after I shutdown it.

Re: pc reboots after I shutdown it.

Hi,

Please describe precisely the procedure to shut it down (long press on a button? mouse clicking on a specific button? etc)

Is your PC connected to an HDMI wire or another wire ?

Thanks
