Re: installed 19.1

I tried to update grub but it would not allow me to do it. I really don't know what to do at all. If I hold the shift key sometimes it goes to a boot menu and i enter and it may boot. Its a Dell Inspiron 560 I have been running linux only on it for a few releases. I am not sure what is causing this....

Re: vboxclient the virtualbox kernel service is not running

I apologize to the forum but I don't seem to see a fix.

Do I remove the packages from synaptic?
guest addition module source for dkms
non-X11 guest utilities
X11 guest utilities

those seem to be the only virtualbox things installed.
I don't want to ruin my setup. HELP!

Re: mouse movement opens folder

any ideas why my mouse functions are behaving incorrectly.

I can't seem to find the app that controls even the click to open function.

mouse movement opens folder

LM 17
when I try to left click hold to drag folder on desktop it opens the folder.
Also right click mouse on folder opens menu but letting go makes the drop down disappear. I thought a right click opens the menu and lets you choose option then left click?
What is going on?

shut down computer grayed out at boot up

LM 17 I have a shut down button on my panel. this started yesterday the shut down computer is greyed out (or dull colored) It does not work. If I remove it from the panel and re add it, it works fine. Since then this happens every time I turn on my pc. What is happening and how do I fix it? Thank you.
