Re: Evaporating dialogue box?

Hello michael-hi, Yes, I understood. Since I read your message, I have not even turned on that computer at all. I think that advice was super clear and helpful. I have too many plans to attempt recovery, though who knows if any of them will work. I'm speaking with a person later today who seems to f...

Re: Evaporating dialogue box?

Hi Michael-hi, Thank you for your kind words. I agree it does feel surreal. Honestly, I've been pretty numb since i started to realize what i may have lost, and your words helped me to feel how bad it might be, and I'm grateful to be sobbing, rather than feeling dead inside. I didn't know i was so a...

Re: Evaporating dialogue box?

Maybe, I need to mark some dpkg for architecture in synaptic package manager to be able to install Zoom, based on that error message? How on earth could I see the full error message at least, or if I couldn't, how would I parse which of the dpkg available in synaptic should be marked for installatio...

Re: Evaporating dialog box?

Hello LanceM, or anyone, if you are understandably tired of trying to help me. Well, I got help installing 19.3, I believe a day before 20 was released because my OS issues had progressed and I was having difficulty booting. It is hard for me to believe this but I now perhaps have more significant t...

Re: Evaporating dialogue box?

Hi LanceM, Thank you so much for your reply!!! What I'm looking at that seems weird to me, is that under "my computer", there are these two disks, one which says it can't be mounted and the one storing all of my data, while at the same time in another corner of the memory, under: menu, preferences, ...

Re: Evaporating dialogue box?

Thank you so much for that reply LanceM!!! I apologize for my long delay in following up. I finally had a chance to read what you linked to, install all of the many pending updates, and started setting up timeshift after getting it through synaptic. I also think that i now remember trying to get upd...

Re: Evaporating dialogue box?

It is standalone Mint. I was somehow able to get terminal to accept my root password, and then to follow the terminal commands of your earlier post, LanceM! So I ran the update and got the dist upgrade, as you suggested. A lot happened very quickly in the terminal! Is it possible that it appears com...

Re: Evaporating dialogue box?

Also in synaptic, I find in the history of installed, upgraded, and removed software packages, under yesterday's date, that the Commit Log (whatever that is) recorded "completely removed the following packages:
zoom

Does this mean also that any depency is resolved?

Re: Evaporating dialogue box?

Okay, so also I just figured out that through synaptic, I can go to "add downloaded packages", then go to other locations, and then to tmp, and mozilla0 where the .deb was downloaded, at that point, I see the zoom .deb package but it is greyed out? I click open, anyway even though I can't select it,...

Re: Evaporating dialogue box?

Hi LanceM, Thank you for your reply. I used synaptic to remove the prior version of Zoom, before noticing that I could try the commands that you recommended, but it was definitely previously installed, since I downloaded it and had no issue with it for about 3 months. I think that I had no issues wi...

Re: Evaporating dialogue box?

Thank you LanceM and Reorx! That really helped!!! I was able to use synaptic to remove the old version of Zoom, which is great. I'm still trying to resolve the dialogue box problem, or find a work around, or understand what I'm doing wrongly, or if there is something serious going on that causes the...

Re: Evaporating dialogue box?

Thank you so much for replying! I downloaded Zoom, so maybe that means that I dowloaded the .deb? Trying to remove Zoom however, caused me to wonder if this problem of the dialogue box exists in other ways, and when I try to modify anything or look at anything, all dialogue boxes seem to similarly d...
