Re: Is There Any Differences Between Xorg and Nvidia Graph Cards For Normal Use?

If you have an Nvidia graphics card then the open source nouveau driver is being used - or should be.

I don't bother with the Nvidia drivers as nouveau works fine for me.

/var/lib/flatpak/ has a boatload of files :wink:

Re: Problems with mint 19.2 after installation

According to your last screenshot you ran fsck on /dev/sda1 when your third screenshot indicated that /dev/sda2 has errors :? What implication then? I think he ran it on the entire drive, and just took a snapshot of the sda2 section when it showed on screen. You're probably correct. When I saw the ...

Re: Tessa undelete

Never had the occasion to use it, but ext4magic is another undelete utility for ext3/4 filesystems.

It might already be installed.

Re: no wifi, please help

I purchased a laptop a few yeas ago and the wireless worked when I booted it to Windows to shrink the partition in order to setup a dual boot. However when I installed and booted Mint the wireless was dead. The wireless is toggled with the Fn+F2 key combination - you might have a similar situation,,,
