Re: Ubuntu on second drive on laptop

Though I have Linux installed on my pc, I have not installed in a while but I remember a step where it ask you (wait for your reply) if you want grub installed.

Re: Ubuntu on second drive on laptop

Question: Why the need to install the bootloader if your pc is booting properly?

Suggestion: Install Ubuntu and skip grub installation then boot Linux mint and run grub update. It should find your ubuntu and add it to the list

Re: Install CentOS 7 alongside Mint

How do you have your drive partitioned right now? I am not an expert on encrypted HD but normally if I have the whole partition for a single OS, I just use gparted and shrink the existing to make room for another OS

Re: TV as monitor problems

I was able to do this in the past using only proprietary driver when I had amd catalyst control center installed. What card and driver are you using? Catalyst is only for AMD cards, which the OP hasn't specified, and anyway catalyst not available on any currently supported Mint version. The OP need...

Re: Dual boot now missing

What files are under your /EFI/Microsoft/Boot? Look and compare with /EFI/Microsoft.orig/Boot. If one is missing, there could be more.

Re: Dual boot now missing

According to the a post I read, bootmgfw.efi loads a BCD file which should be under "/EFI/Microsoft/Boot". Looking at the long list of files you have posted, BCD doesn't exist under that folder BUT I see it under "/EFI/Microsoft.orig/Boot". Try copying the file to "/EFI/Microsoft/Boot" and cross you...

Re: Unable to boot from SSD after install

I'm not sure if the screenshot is cutoff and we couldn't see the entire entry but I was wondering if changing "errors=remount$" to "rw,relatime 0 1" will solve the issue.

I also wonder if this is the/an issue: viewtopic.php?f=46&t=278846&p=1537056#p1535285.

Looks like both issues are/were on the laptop.
Well, looks like both discussions were started by him.

@MrEen - It's quite alright with me you jumping in to help and solve beckwith's problem. We all can learn from each other. After checking the link you provided, I think it's worth a shot as I'm really out of ideas. :D

Re: Enable maximizing window across multiple displays

Not 100% sure but I believe if it exists, it will use it. There are also config files under /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d - If you look at your log file "/var/log/xorg.0.log", it will tell you what config file is used.

Re: Dual boot now missing

The UUID you used has a typo. You have "8C6D-7620" on your config file. The correct UUID is 8C6D-7630" per your previous post.

Re: LM 19.1 AMD dual monitor, second screen is black

Yeah, I'm not sure why you have two "radeon.conf" files. You only need one. My suggestion would be to create another configuration file(s) for your monitors and screens and save in in the same folder "/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d". If that doesn't work maybe other's have a clue why your second screen ...
