Re: wich adapter wireless?

Don't give up so soon: maybe you can get the Belkin to work properly. 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 termin...

Re: Linux Mint install with Geforce GTX 1080 Ti

You might try the almost-finished Ubuntu 18.04, at least temporarily, until Mint 19 will be released:

Re: Linux Mint 19 codenamed “Tara”

Could we expect the resources needed to run Linux Mint 19.x are comparable or less than Linux Mint 18.x (I'm talking about Cinnamon)? I really want my system to stay lean. That's the main reason I moved to Linux Mint. Roughly identical, I suspect. Note that any "system load increase" has usually mo...

Re: gksu removed from the repo's of Ubuntu 18.04

Gedit appears to be the key.... If I install Gedit in Xubuntu 18.04 Bionic, I can use Gedit exactly like in Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install gedit

Code: Select all

gedit admin:///etc/default/grub
Works fine, but we need gksu/gksudo to trigger a warning.... That'll decrease the confusion.

Re: gksu removed from the repo's of Ubuntu 18.04

gedit admin:///etc/default/grub works fine in Ubuntu Bionic, but in Xubuntu Bionic mousepad admin:///etc/default/grub doesn't.... I haven't tested Lubuntu yet. How about xdg-open admin:///etc/default/grub ? That works partly and with hiccups (three or four times I had to enter my password).... And ...

Re: gksu removed from the repo's of Ubuntu 18.04

gedit admin:///etc/default/grub works fine in Ubuntu Bionic, but in Xubuntu Bionic mousepad admin:///etc/default/grub doesn't (yet?).... I still haven't tested Lubuntu. My main concern is indeed this period of upheaval and the many problems with existing how-to's that contain gksudo . It would cert...

gksu removed from the repo's of Ubuntu 18.04

Unpleasant news: gksu has been removed from the repo's of Ubuntu Bionic: https://jeremy.bicha.net/2018/04/18/gksu-removed-from-ubuntu/ For Mint 19, this'll also affect Synaptic, GParted, Mints Update Manager, etc. And for editing system config files, it almost feels as if we're being pushed towards ...

Re: Updates for new install Mint 18.3 Cinnamon

Practical solution: in a fresh installation, it obviously doesn't matter if your system breaks because of an update. Nothing lost, you're up and running again in no time, by means of a clean installation. So what I advise is this: after a clean installation, first simply install all level 1-4 update...

Re: Linux Mint 19 codenamed “Tara”

I really wish the Linux Mint 19.x will keep the use of system resources to a minimum. Make sure the least memory is used, the less background processes the better and everything is lean and fast. This minimalism approach is the best thing to do. Each to his own taste. It seems that the lightweight ...

Execute this command: grep modesetting /var/log/Xorg.0.log Does the last line (or the last line but one) of the output it produces, look approximately similar to the line below?

Re: Asus W5000 Built in Camera not recognized

OK, try this:

Update Manager - panel: View - Linux kernels

Install the latest kernel of the 4.4 series. Reboot and make sure you boot from it (it's under the header Advanced in the Grub bootloader menu).

Re: I think that linux need to start the S.O. with Num Lock enabled by default

NumLock is fine with me on a desktop keyboard, but I recently installed a distro on one of my laptops that defaulted to NumLock on, had quite the time logging in until I realized what was happening. I for one, have no use for NumLock on a laptop keyboard that does not have a separate number pad. Nu...
