The problem here is the ISO (or the stick) is not correct.

Edited to add: The solutions you have provided are for issues downstream of this issue.
Hi, SMG,

Thank you for the clarification.

I apologize for misdiagnosing DeeAnne's problem and muddying the waters. :oops:

Re: Intel graphics screen black

Hi, DeeAnne, I don't have a solution per se, but after doing some searching, I found several (older) forum threads which describe problems with the same graphics hardware that you have. I will copy-and-paste them below; perhaps it would help one of the forum gurus to better assist you ... https://fo...

Re: Deleted EFI partition

Hi, Angel25, It would be helpful if you could post some additional information about your setup. For instance, does your PC only have Mint installed? Do you have a dual-boot setup with Windows? (Or maybe even a multi-boot Linux arrangement?) How important is it to you to access your personal files (...

Re: Operating system tracking website

I'm not sure if this is what you have in mind, but two websites (analytics tools) which I'm slightly familiar with are W3Counter and StatCounter:

Re: Dumb Question re updating

Having just done a fresh install of Mint 19.2 myself, I can vouch for the helpfulness of the resources below. If you take a look at them, you'll have a better understanding of Mint and, if you apply them, a more finely tuned system: https://easylinuxtipsproject.blogspot.com/p/mintupdate.html Easy Li...

Re: <Solved> Dirty COW bug kernel fix for Rosa?

I hope it's OK to post in a " Solved " thread; I decided to because I thought it might be helpful to others who have the same (aging) hardware as mine. This is a fresh 17.3 install, which came with the vulnerable 3.19.0-32 kernel. I was also concerned about whether the legacy Nvidia driver...

Re: Editing the XFCE menu sort of thing

ahalin and grey1960envoy,

You're very welcome. I'm glad you found the directions helpful. Thanks for the kind words.

If the truth be told, Paul (parnote) did most of the heavy lifting on how to edit the menu; I don't think I added a lot of original content. I still have much to learn about Xfce ...

Hmm, it's curious that you don't have a Keyboard Layouts applet listed ... Within that window, they are listed in alphabetical order, so I believe you when you say that it's not there. My best guess at the moment is for you to check if the following packages are installed in your system: xfce4-xkb-p...

Re: Editing the XFCE menu sort of thing

Hi, You'll need to use the Terminal (aka command line) in order to accomplish this, as Xfce 4.6.x does not have a GUI-fied tool to edit the menu, AFAIK. You can start up the Terminal by going to the Mint menu > Accessories > Terminal. You will be editing the unwanted application's .desktop file, whi...

Yes, that's correct, if you're talking about older Macs with the PowerPC architecture. They have to run a specially designed d...
