Re: Installing Linux Mint - Disk Space Issues

Given your limited understanding I would say you should be very careful. It is best to prepare your free space and partitions with Gparted first. It's not a lot of free space that you have but there is no reason why it wouldn't be OK. Depending on the HD type, you may need to use windows tools to ti...

Re: Movie Maker for Mint

I use

Handbrake
VLC
OpenShot
Pitivi

Handbrake has plenty of options to change the output for youtube etc as does VLC (Not everyone realises about vlc)

No need of windows at all

Re: High CPU when in zoom meeting

I never had the high cpu issue but video was very laggy for about a minute after entering a meeting, but it resolved itself after that.
My solution has been to boot the 5.3.0-45 kernel
But the most recent kernel, 5.3.0-53 is just fine

Re: Problems w Zoom video

Reboot and use the option to boot an older kernel
I'm having to use 5.3.0-45
That will solve the problem

Re: Cannot mount HDD

I have never had to add fstab entries in Mint for access to Windows. Although I don't have Windows currently and not for probably 5yrs I am actually planning to install 10, to a new nvme ssd sometime this week. So it will be interesting to see. So long as Windows is actually shutdown fully I never h...

Re: Cannot mount HDD

Could be windows isn't actually shut down. By default it doesn't actually shutdown
Check it's settings

You need to identify the correct location of the mounted backup device

It can vary

Re: Connected to router but no internet

So this old Mac has worked in your old place
It's connected to the router in this new place - but no internet.

It's odd

Hopefully someone has an idea, I'm not sure. And I have to sleep now

Re: Creating perfect 1 to 1 image possible?

dd does create a bit for bit exact copy

I would probably have used ddrescue
it would start like this:

ionice -c3 ddrescue /dev/sda

But you should be fine

Re: Linux Mint 19.3 xfce no reconoce ubs wifi TP-LINK WN725N

I'd buy yourself another USB device that works.
There are plenty of stores selling Raspberry PI stuff. And all their USB Wifi will work in Linux. Just around $5

Re: Connected to router but no internet

Is this your only device that you have that is connecting to this shared network?
In other words, can say for example that your phone is connected to it and that is fine?

Re: How to mount cdrom or dvd?

Support for CD and DVD drives is mostly flawless in my experience.
Having said that I use them less and less. Actually can't recall when I last did, so it's most likely years ago.
You can repair fstab from a live session FYI

But can we ask, how did you install Mint? Via a USB stick or DVD?

Re: How to mount cdrom or dvd?

I'm not sure I understand.
Typically a cd or dvd will just mount. It does so under /dev/sr0

It's certainly not normal to add it to fstab

Re: USB Stick formatting fdisk

Use fdisk from a terminal Typically, you would simply start fdisk: remember it's all sudo Identify your device with fdisk -l And replace the X below eg: the USB might likely be sdb. Be sure to get this right fdisk /dev/sdX and select: o create a new empty DOS partition table and then: n add a new pa...

Re: Firefox - Changing Hidden Mozilla Folder Name

I use a few different FF users under one session login
When I move from one to the other, I rename say my personal .mozilla as .mozilla_me
And then rename my wife currently renamed .mozilla_wife to .mozilla
Bit fiddly, but I seldom have to do it. And it works flawlessly.
