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,,,

Re: How to manage permissions (user group other) for an external harddisc?

The options would be uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=0277,fmask=0377

The dmask executable has to be set for the user to be able to access the folder.

Re: /dev/sdc1 - Rename, Auto-mount - How?

I don't know if the limits were changed, but even according to https://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Partition/labels.html the limit is 16 characters :? The file manager will use the partition's UUID assignment to create a mountpoint in /media/user to mount it. If the partition is labeled then the label name w...

As long as you don't have a proprietary graphics driver like nvidia installed you shouldn't have any problems.

Re: /dev/sdc1 - Rename, Auto-mount - How?

Label names are limited to 16 characers and I would recommend not using a space.

You can use sudo sudo tune2fs /dev/sdc1 -L Thunderbird to set the name or the gui gparted will also do it.

Re: How to manage permissions (user group other) for an external harddisc?

If you mounted an NTFS partition using as an example sudo mount -t ntfs /dev/sda10 /media/vfs all files and folders would have an access of (0777/drwxrwxrwx) and the owner:group would be root. If you used sudo mount -t ntfs -o uid=1000 /dev/sda10 /media/vfs the owner:group would be user:root If you ...
