Re: Installing Mint on M.2 SATA 3? Is this possible? Is there any advice you can give?

And even if it weren't possible - Linux is very flexible in this, you can put a /boot partition containing the bootloader & kernel image (doesn't need to be more than 1GB) on any medium which your computer can boot from. Your root partition can then be on any disk recognised by Linux and doesn't nee...

Re: Any Displayport 1.2 MST Hubs Known to Work With Linux/Mint?

MST typically works fine on Linux - depending on the GPU in your computer. I have an Intel GPU in my ThinkPad laptop and a ThinkPad USB-C Dock, which includes an MST hub. I have not connected a second monitor to it yet, but I know other people have done that with the same dock & GPU and that worked ...

Re: Deactivate touchpad whenever a mouse is plugged in?

I think that this solution is for other desktops ^. On MATE, gsettings is called mateconf. Also, the schemes that come with MATE start with 'org.mate' instead of 'org.gnome'. A quick DuckDuckGo search seems to indicate, that mateconf has a scheme called org.mate.desktop.peripherals.touchpad. However...

Re: I have IPv6 on machine but not on Firefox or Chrome

What is the IPv6 address you get? If it starts with fe80, then it is a local address which can only be used to communicate with other devices in your local network. Many routers assign addresses like that when there is no IPv6 service from the ISP. In my previous home I had a Ubee router (from Ziggo...

Re: Linux Mint(17.1) only my wifi network is not visible.

If channel 13 was forbidden, it could also be due to regulatory settings. Your card might default to a different country, either because of driver issues (as Pjotr said) or because the card was sold in a different country. To correct this, see for instance: https://feeding.cloud.geek.nz/posts/settin...

Re: How Long Should a Computer last?

I'm currently running Mint on a 2006 laptop, and have helped some other users run Mint on such a laptop as well. Works fine, actually. I don't really see the point in replacing your hardware if you are happy with the specifications. If your laptop is treated well - having the cooler cleaned if it is...

Re: Dell M5010

Code: Select all

neverwork@Neverwork ~ $ dmesg > dmesg.txt
That was OK, now you need to upload the dmesg.txt file from your home folder.

Please don't format immediately - before you do that, boot the Mint DVD/USB to see if the issue also happens there. If it does, reinstalling probably doesn't help.

It looks like you installed the 32-bit version of some files on a 64-bit OS. Could you install brdcp7030lpr and cupswrapperdcp7030 again in 64-bit / amd64 version?

That is quite surprising, no touchpad seen at all. I can't find any information on this issue on the web either. Did the touchpad work in Windows? Does it help to use the touchpad on-off button, which is probably a key combination with Fn? These may sound like stupid questions, but I'm out of ideas ...

Re: Compaq CQ58 compatibility query

There was an official driver available for this card, I can't find it anymore on the website of Mediatek. There are a few copies still around on GitHub, such as this one. I'm not sure if it still installs on Mint 18, though.
