Re: Low Disk Space Warning

The only thing that jumps out at me is 647G /media

This '/media/fairway is not a mountpoint' tells me that it's a folder in the root filesystem, i.e., not a mounted partition.

So add 647G to the 19G of the / folder and that would be the total space used.

It could have been a one-time anomaly because there's nothing hogging space.

OpenShot Video Editor is probably your best bet - it's not to difficult to use.

Re: MDM could not write to your authorization file

You will not be able to run fsck from the root recovery option because /dev/sda5 cannot be unmounted.

Again, boot the installation/live session and run sudo e2fsck -fvy dev/sda5 in the terminal.

When done sudo reboot and try booting normally.

Re: MDM could not write to your authorization file

The installation media is the usb/dvd that you used to install Mint.

If you don't have the original installation version you can use the latest Mint version.

It would be easier working from there in case more information is required.

If you want to try fsck from the recovery menu that's fine.

Re: SOLVED - Can't boot after recent 19.2 updates - Error - directory is encrypted

Having a periodic check of the partition will help

sudo tune2fs -c35 /dev/sd?? will set the partition to be checked during boot after 35 mounts then reset back to one.

Replace ?? with the partition designation.

Boot the installation media and paste back sudo blkid to identify the Linux partition.

Re: MDM could not write to your authorization file

Your filesystem went read only so there could be some sort of problem.

Boot the live media and try to mount it to /mnt from there and check the mount command to see if it's mounted rw.
