Re: [Solved]Wine 32bit on 64bit system

Hi Dakshina, Thank you for your real life testimony on using Linux in a professional world. This is what we need because at home, just to browse and multimedia things mostly work, but when on a professional setting things may change and when time equals money there is no time to fool around when peo...

Re: [Solved]Wine 32bit on 64bit system

Hi dakshina44, Well, you're pretty damned locked on Microsoft Office, now I understand your context and it is a real life one. An i7 (don't know how old it is but) with 16 Gigs of RAM is already a hi-end computer, it does whatever you want pretty quickly, specially if you have a light distro like Lu...

Re: [Solved]Wine 32bit on 64bit system

I upgraded my OS to 19.04 [precisely lubuntu 19.04] and installed playonlinux; and then added i386 architecture; and then installed wine32 and then MS office 2010. All went smoothly; and everything is working fine. I'm glad that upgrading went smoothly. Things are much much better than old times, n...

Re: (Solved) Cannot boot into linux mint 19.1 with elitebook 840 g3

Hopefully, this is not a trend. Less than a year ago I bought a €300 Celeron laptop with a great screen, 6GB of RAM and 128GB crazy fast + 32GB SSD. I needed a new toy and I couldn't resist this one. After days of struggling to understand the UEFI "BIOS" (you really need to be a hardware engineer t...

Re: (Solved) Cannot boot into linux mint 19.1 with elitebook 840 g3

Glad you could work around your issued and be able to install Mint!

What a chaotic configuration just to boot from USB... What happened to the old "piano play" with Esc, F2, F4, F8, F10 and F12 at boot time? Generally one of those would get me somewhere...

Re: How can I get the buttons in Nemo look bigger on Mint-Y-Dark-Blue?

Thank you all for your feedback and comments. I tried the Gnome Color Chooser. Thanks, @Resistor! :wink: It's a nice tool indeed. But it doesn't affect a thing on Nemo. It does affect Gedit, but it never had this issue. Gedit always had it's scrool bars. Nemo must have it's scroll bars written some ...

The part that you can drag up and down to scroll the page is invisible on Nemo (it's actually dark grey on dark grey and remains dark g...

Re: How can I get the buttons in Nemo look bigger on Mint-Y-Dark-Blue?

you are using a theme that's built for a different GTK version to what your system has... You got me!! :P (dramatic theatrical death) I'm using LMDE2 (yeah, me know, me knows) and I've imported it from Mint 19.1. So I guess the GTK version might be different, yes (and also the Cinnamon version). Si...

[SOLVED] How can I get the buttons in Nemo look bigger on Mint-Y-Dark-Blue?

I've installed the Mint-Y-Dark-Blue theme to soften my reading at night but the buttons on Nemo are really small. Also, the menu text is too much squeezed next to one another: https://imgur.com/knTVX4f I would like the size of the buttons and the text to look like 'normal' on the Mint-X-Aqua theme: ...

Re: Touchpad and Dell XPS 13

Does this happens on the Live media you've installed Mint from? Also you can try to create and boot from a Mint 19.1 or LMDE3 media and test it. If this is solved on LMDE3 you might consider installing it; or if this has been solved on Mint 19.1 you should make a backup of your current installation ...

Re: Cannot boot into linux mint 19.1 with elitebook 840 g3

Yeah, UEFI can be a PITA... Sometimes the USB medias don't boot. There are several ways to create a boot USB media from an ISO. There are tools for Windows (rufus? and I believe HP has an old USB formatting tool?) and Linux Mint has it's own USB media creator tool, as long with unetbootin you can in...

Re: Black screen after install

I had this on my newest laptop. This is UEFI bull crap. LMDE2 does not boot into grub no matter what. I have to install LMDE3 or Mint 19.x in order to boot. But then it can also present the same issue as you have. Boot into your UEFI "BIOS" and disable Secure Boot and Fast Boot. These usually don't ...

Re: [Solved]Wine 32bit on 64bit system

Sometimes winetricks can be helpful to configure the wine subsystem to 32 bits and also thinker the Windows version. And PlayOnLinux can be good as it can install alongside within himself a lot of wine versions, 32 and 64 bits, and test between all of them. Yeah wine can be chaotic as all the GUIs t...

I've installed Mint 19.1 and I've copied my home folder from my previous LMDE2 installation, both Cinnamon editions. Yes, I know LDME and the main edition have different bases but I thought just the personal home folder wouldn't hurt copying over. I got most my personal definitions imported into Min...
