Re: Solus OS

I believe I read that Ikey Doherty (the developer) left Solus a month or two ago, he wrote a going away letter. Rumor was that he got booted out by some others. Whatever the case, I suggest you go to them and ask for help. https://getsol.us/help-center/home/ =====PS I searched "Ikey Doherty" and fou...

Re: Small screen vs big non-scrollable/non-resizable windows

Have you tried any other distros? (non-Mint) ?


I had a Asus Eeepc but I gifted it a couple years ago. Nice units.
I was able to overcome that resolution problem, don't remember the details.

Re: Repository for Debian

Imagine there is Debian as a distrubion and Mint, Deepin, Neon, Elementary, Ubuntu etc. are all just skins. I'd like for Mint to pioneer this idea - allow Debian users to just install it as a skin, with all the configs and what not, but in a way that is reversible so one could swap 'skins'/have mul...

Re: TimeShift can't restore snapshot, stuck on dry run.

Sunday, November 11, 2018 Timeshift is a hog, it sucks up a Lot of disk space! https://preview.ibb.co/fh1cYV/timeshift.png To combat the space problem I created a separate partition for the snapshots. I thought 10 GB would be OK considering the entire system is about 5.5 GB but it got full and I had...

For future reference:

Code: Select all

lsblk -f
Easier to read and saves you the sudo.

If you prefer GUI, then Mint menu > Disks also shows the UUID for any partition you click on.
NICE! thanks, I will start using

Code: Select all

lsblk -f
=== however

Code: Select all

lsblk -J

what is that used for?

If you see your bug report closed without comment ... comment of that closed thread and ask Why.
