Re: How to get Wi-Fi on new installation of Linux Mint Cinnamon 64-bit

The suggestions above won't break anything, so "try it. What the "Hades" have you got to lose?" (tongue-in-cheek). We're not talking about Hydroxycloroquine.

If it doesn't work, someone will instruct you about diagnostic tests to pinpoint the source of the problem.

Re: Fresh install Linux Mint 19.1 Wifi not connecting problem

Good that you verified the .iso before installing.

Did you check the integrity of the medium?

The Driver Manager is empty, because it's no longer necessary to install it. It's already installed. To connect wirelessly: 1. Go to the System Tray located in the lower right corner of your screen & click the Ethernet connection icon. https://i.imgur.com/RqIqujS.png 2. Make certain that the &qu...

Re: Opinions on GPT?

If consistency, when creating system images, is a reason for changing the initialization of the older device; then 1 Macrium Rescue flash drive, created with the multi-boot option & bootable in both computers, obviates the need for uniformity. In addition to the free version, there is also the 3...

Re: Lenovo Chromebook and Linux Mint

Dual-booting with Chrome OS & LM is a bit of a hassle, because you need to toggle back & forth. There is also the possibility of losing data after each login, which would be rather annoying. Replacing Chrome OS is the way to go. The main difference between your Lenovo N21 & my Acer C710 ...

Re: Removed Usb drive too early, major crash

The Grub Bootloader should appear immediately after the Splash Screen, without having to enter the UEFi. LM should also boot by default, if it had been installed alongside Windows. https://i.imgur.com/NTDjk7Y.png?1 I did not notice the "Check the integrity of the medium" option with the fi...

Re: Removed Usb drive too early, major crash

Had a very similar black screen problem while installing 19.3 Mate on a converted Acer C710 (formerly Chromebook) a month ago. Instead of using Etcher, Rufus burned the .iso. The first attempt at burning failed & returned a 0x80070032 error, which Pete Batard suggests that the difficulty resulte...

Macrium Rescue Medium Creation

In the good old days before UEFI, all you had to do to create a Macrium Reflect Rescue flash drive, was to format a raw drive in Windows File Explorer & Macrium did the rest. The medium that you created in the past will not boot now in a UEFI device. After formatting a new USB flash drive & ...

Re: HP touchpad not working

Before installing, verify the .iso first. It's a waste of time to install a corrupted file. Installation guide for an older version of LM, but the steps are the same. Connect to the Internet & attach a mouse before starting the installation. See "Known Issues" of these Release Notes &a...

Re: Complete Linux Novice needs help.

Chris, Before you do anything else, it's best to stop for a moment & understand what AHCI is (if you don't already). Here is a good place to start . It is my impression that you've replaced Windows with LM in the SSD (eMMC) drive. Regarding the concern about Windows not booting, the webpage has ...

Jeanine, I'm going on the assumption that 1) you would like the option of using the Lenovo touchpad as well as the Logitech mouse & 2) you don't have a touchpad tab in the mouse dialog box. As explained in these Release Notes for 19.3 Cinnamon, the installed libinput driver is not compatible wit...
