Re: wifi stops working after a couple of minutes

I first wanted to see if it said "Power Management:off" - which it does, so that is good.

But now, the question is - why does it say
" *-network DISABLED "

Mine does not say that.
I don't know why yours does...

If you are talking about the Grub menu, you can pause it easily by tapping the UP or DOWN arrow key when it appears.

Re: Help -installing mint -confused why!

Try installing Mint 18.2 Mate or Cinnamon without an internet connection. It goes much faster, and you can always do the updates later, at your convenience...

Use the 64bit version if your computer supports 64bit. Some 32bit programs are being discontinued.

Re: Reconfigure Grub.cfg for larger drive installation

The root still is in /dev/sda and I wonder if there was a typo in grub-install line - should it have read grub-install /dev/sdc? You are exactly right. You should have installed grub to /dev/sdc during the chroot operation. You can go back and redo that operation, but there is actually an easier wa...

Re: Share documents & pictures between Windows 10 and Linux mint

So do I have to store my files in Windows under a separate created file or make a separate partition or will Mint just go and look for them? Or do I have to "point" Mint to them in a way. You would access the files using the file manager in Mint in the same way you access any files. The f...

Re: Share documents & pictures between Windows 10 and Linux mint

Regarding sharing files... So the only way will be to save a document on a USB drive, open it document in Linux and save it again there? No. All you have to do is save the file on your Windows partition, and Mint will be able to see it and copy it. Windows cannot read linux partitions, but the usua...

Re: Share documents & pictures between Windows 10 and Linux mint

Regarding installation of Cinnamon and KDE ..... I will create separate root partitions - one for Cinnamon and one for KDE, and then install each one separately. I won't install one over the other. So when the PC boots up there will be options for Windows, Cinnamon and KDE. So will this be OK? That...

I do not agree with that conclusion. GPT partitioning is more stable and more versatile than msdos partitioning.
All you have to do is learn how to use it correctly - which is not that complicated.

Re: Share documents & pictures between Windows 10 and Linux mint

I want to also dual-boot with Mint Cinnamon and KDE (so triple-boot). So will install Cinnamon and KDE next. This is not a problem, if you create separate root partitions - one for Cinnamon and one for KDE, and then install each one separately. The problem Hoser Rob refers to is when someone instal...

There will be no MOUNTPOINT, so no point in listing it.

Re: Linux Kernel update confusion

I have learned that you shouldn’t update Linux as a general rule This is not precisely correct. You should keep your Linux Mint updated using the Update Manager. The idea that you should not "update" comes from the fact that you should not use the terminal command for upgrade because that...
