[fixed]Re: no sound

not sure what I did, I installed a few things that had sound blaster and multimedia in it and then I tried removing the sound blaster card. Then I realized the card cage was preventing the 3.5mm plug from plugging in. The onboard (Mobo) sound jacks are disabled and the panel on the front of the comp...

[fixed]no sound

I have a Dell e520. Just installed 18.3 xfce. I'm not hearing any system sounds and no music, actually nothing at all. inxi -Fxi reports I have a Creative Labs SB X-Fi audio card. Does this card prevent sound from coming out the normal routes? Head phones jack in front doesn't seem to work, the gree...

Re: how do I install to probook 640?

No joy with the uefi using the 64bit 18.3 any of them. After many hours of re-install trying different combinations I got the grub and legacy bios to work with an 18.3 xfce. Looks nice

Re: how do I install to probook 640?

Keeping the settings in bios the same, I remade the usb stick. Same problem with booting after doing a full re-install. So then i tried a different usb stick using a fedora distro. Full install, worked after booting! So then I downloaded the current xfce version. It won't boot either. Something is w...

Re: how do I install to probook 640?

Checked on the above as suggested, re-installed after it didn't boot. still get the same message. on the hard drive there is an sda2 size 512mb with an efi folder. It is empty, should it be? there is also a grub folder, it has a folder named x86_64-efi with content in it. Could this be a messed-up l...

[working]how do I install to probook 640?

I bought a reconditioned HP Probook 640, sure looks nice. It boots very easy to Cinnamon 18.3, the installation goes pretty fast. It starts with a warning about legacy bios or uefi and recommended uefi. I chose uefi. When it came time to reboot, the computer requests I install a bootable OS. I've go...

Re: I need to duplicate my laptop onto a usb stick

I tried most of the above and didn't really get what I needed (wifi doesn't work after usb boot). I got several working laptops running winxp, they are all dell d630 model and none of them will work the wifi on Linux, even after following instructions. I got one to run ubuntu 16.04lts and i found a ...

Re: I need to duplicate my laptop onto a usb stick

haven't used grsync before. I installed it from the repos. While watching a video about it, I noticed it just does backup, nothing about it being a bootable OS with an installer and retaining setting info from original laptop. I want to stick a usb into another laptop (several) and install Linux min...

Re: please switch to another mirror

the updater seems to know that a couple kernels are out of date so I let it work on those for a few hours. They updated to 4.4.0.127 and then I put the laptop away. Don't have time for further testing at this time

Re: need guidance in choosing DE

Not interested in spending the hours of investment of time I don't have, just to discover the LM flavor I spent time on doesn't do the application I might need a month from now. Do all the LM flavors do essentially the same thing? They all seem to look alike. How do i even tell which one it is that ...

have no idea what bling bling would be unless you refer to windblows. I just want a stable easy to use DE that will remain available as a workhorse, as in SunOS, used to really love that one.

[Solved,must read] need guidance in choosing DE

I've looked at the different DE guides and I don't see a difference. Well, the Xfce one wasn't available in English so I didn't bother to look at it. Short history summary: Many years ago it was just Linux as in Redhat or Debian. I ran RedHat back then. Then I found Debian was a lot cheaper and I pr...
