Re: BIOS update

Re: Drivers for WiFi adapter not installing

With the WiFi adapter plugged in, please generate an overview of your system like this: - Launch a terminal window (this is how to launch a terminal window) ; - make the terminal window full screen, to avoid chopped lines; - Copy/paste this command into the terminal: inxi -Fxz (if you type: the lett...

Re: BIOS update

Another consideration: how important is a particular BIOS update? If it fixes nothing that's important for you, why bother? :) I've done BIOS updates myself like that, but there were also times when I skipped a BIOS update because it was unimportant for me. Not worth the effort. It's always wise to ...

I understand you want me to use Timeshift. But then copying and pasting your / and /home partitions with Gparted on an external hard disk can't be used for a possible system restore?
I wouldn't know. I advise you to do exactly as I described. :wink:

Re: BIOS update

Now a question, having the Home and Root partitions cloned with Gparted on an external hard disk Cloned with Timeshift, not with GParted. :) if I reinstall Windows and update the BIOS, after, what do I have to do to get my PC back in the same state as now? Is it enough that with the live Linux Mint...

Re: BIOS update

There's a sure and failsafe way, but it does cost you a lot of time... 1. Create a Timeshift snapshot from both your system and your /home (with all its data and hidden settings), on an external medium (USB memory stick, USB hard drive). 2. Get a free evaluation version of Windows 10: https://www.mi...

Re: Mint 19.1 Are these updates safe.

I'll miss the levels system in the mintupdate of 19.2.... For my personal use, because I've set level 4 and kernel updates as "always visible", but not preselected. Because for them, I'm more careful with choosing the update moment than for level 1-3. And for my system-administratorship for some oth...

Levels are set to be removed completely with LM 19.2, anyway.
Why not let them stay (hidden, like now) for the people who want to use them (like I)? :shock:

Re: No sound

Does the sound work when you boot from the Mint DVD (or Mint USB stick)?

[SOLVED] How can I encrypt zipped files with file-roller?

I'd like to encrypt some compressed folders. But file-roller only allows that for the .zip format, and it even then it does *not* allow for encrypting the file list (checkbox is greyed out).

How can I encrypt both a folder and its file list with file-roller?
