Re: multi boot mint 19

If your Mint16 and Mint 17 are in separate partitions, there should be no problem in clearing the partition with Mint 16. But then are you sure you want mint 19, why not mint 18.3, which seems more robust. I recall Clem asking this question...

Re: How to upgrade to Linux Mint 19

Clem and all other developers - what a magnificent piece of work Linux Mint 19! I did have some difficulties installing it, but actually minor hiccups. As far as I can see, the installation failures were caused by the changes in the good old grub. To be able to work in now needs a small separate par...

On my HP2000 laptop that switches the touch pad off. It should work for your laptop too. If it does, please mark your mail <solved>.

unable to switch sound back on hp2000

I have installed linuxmint 17.3 mate on my laptop hp2000. Seems like I switched off the sound by inaptly pressing F11 and possibly other keys. I now have no sound at all when I play video files with VLC. I am unable to have sound from the laptop whatever I do.

Any suggestions?

Re: HDMI causing BOOT failure

What version of ubuntu do you use? I would like to test it on my HD2000 laptop with a usb connection to a larger screen. When using mint how does the "boot failure" manifests itself? Is it frozen image of the last stages of booting process?

You can make a symlink to your home folder as well with the ls command, so that you can use 'jin' instead of '/ns2/Documents/...'. Sure.

GUI to launch Jin on 'Lisa'

It is easy to launch Jin with Mint12 'Lisa' from CLI and it works well. Jin is a chess client for Free Chess Server, written in Java. However, to get it from CLI it is necessary to open 'Terminal' and enter the pointer to the file 'jin' - a fairly slow process. It is surely possible to put an icon o...
