I've been thinking of trying this one:

With a 120GB SSD and 8GB RAM it comes in about $290.

Re: Way to screen mirror to Roku?

Just connect an HDMI out on the computer to an HDMI in on the TV, and it will recognize it as a second monitor, and you will be able to select the option to mirror. The Roku part really doesn't come into play.

Re: "Device or resource busy" Can't delete nodejs package, can't install updates because the system wants me to delete i

You need more detail where the error is occurring. There's lots of files in /usr which should open, especially if you are running the desktop. Don't know what would be connected to removing nodejs, though. Try lsof +c 15 +D /usr/bin/ and see if anything there looks related. And try cat /var/log/dpkg...

Re: same monitor, different workspace resolutions

Interesting. The easiest way I know to have a second display, different resolution, is to just log on as another user on another tty, and run startx -- :1 . But that doesn't give you any flexibility to move things between the two, not really practical for workflow, most of the time. Unless what you ...

Re: Problem with wireless connection

Likely a driver issue, and if it works in 18.04, it will probably be fixed in 19, which should be ready for release before the end of this month. But you should be able to get it working in 18. Some broadcom models especially need a driver installation, for example. Need the info from the inxi comma...

Re: "Device or resource busy" Can't delete nodejs package, can't install updates because the system wants me to delete i

Try:

Code: Select all

lsof +D /usr|grep nodejs
Since most all files installed by nodejs have "nodejs" somewhere in the filename or path, that should catch most all of them (it will take a little time to run, though). If that finds any open files, you can kill the process listed by PID using:

Code: Select all

kill -9 PID

Re: Strange internet connectivity issue

Try this:

apt install --reinstall resolvconf
That should work. If it doesn't, you can try to restore the missing symlink directly:

Code: Select all

Re: Strange internet connectivity issue

Well you shouldn't need to put anything there in the connection info for the nameserver (DNS server), that should be blank, it should be getting that from the router if dhcp is working. Try this: cat /var/log/syslog|grep "NetworkManager\|dhclient" I can't figure why there appears to be no resolver w...

Re: Strange internet connectivity issue

Have you tried changing the DNS server on the router? Maybe the one being provided by your ISP isn't working properly. Some public ones you can try: Google: 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 OpenDNS: 208.67.220.220 and 208.67.222.222 You could also try: systemd-resolve google.com to verify that DNS isn't working ...

Re: After long idle, resume screen awakes but only mouse will move

First thought, since machines are identical, only one having problems, is that problems like this can sometimes be caused by a power supply issue. If you can't find anything else wrong, I'd be tempted to switch the power supplies, and see if the same machine still has a problem. First though, check ...

Ah yes.

Per the above, try:

At least I think that's right, but I don't really know the KDE edition.

Most aspects of the appearance are highly customizable. But the details will depend on which desktop you are using. And to take things from other desktops, other distros, even Windows, generally requires converting things manually from whatever format is used by one desktop to a theme format used by...

Re: Linux Mint 18.3 meltdown on laptop

Boot your machine. At the loging screen, instead of logging in, CTL-ALT-F1 to get to a console. Login at the text console.

If you are able to login there, then run

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install --reinstall cinnamon
sudo service mdm restart
The CTL-ALT-F7 to get back to the graphical login and try again.

Re: How would you remove Linux Mint then reinstall it again, while dual booting?

Well if you are reinstalling anyway, you can skip steps 4-8 there. You can do everything you need from the installation disk (or usb). As for partioning, most partitioning utilities will also allow you to give the partition a "label". I find this makes it easier to remember what is where, if I label...

I would just open a terminal and do this from the command line. It's not clear to me whether Mint is even mounting your external partition. Use the command df to list all the mounted partitions. If it is, you should be able to use the "cd" command to change directories to the mount point listed. If ...
