Step by Step dual boot Win 10 + Mint 20

I have a new computer, ASUS with 256 Gig Chip instead of a standard hard drive. It came with Windows 10 already installed. I will use Win 10 only to write books, and would like to use LinuxMint 20 for all my other usual user needs: email, web surfing, etc. My need is to have step by step instruction...

Re: System Reports reinstall not available

Thanks yes, this is the download, pity it uses a different name, wastes time for you and me.

Re: Cinnamon 19.1, 19.2 desktop system icons move on their own

I'm glad its not only me that has this problem. How do we get this elevated to the level where someone at LinuxMint who can fix this gets involved, any ideas?

Cinnamon 19.1, 19.2 desktop system icons move on their own

In both Cinnamon 19.1 and now in 19.2 also, system icons on desktop move around the desktop on their own. This happens with Trash, Home, Computer icons. They move to wherever and into the same desktop place, underneath or on top of other desktop icons. If I place these icons not near other icons, th...

I followed the various options, each with their own branches and sub-branches, bottom line, there is one file that is a driver that does not install. Can't tell if its a defect in my system 19.1 cinnamon, or a different problem. What I can't figure out is: How to extract the driver from the file con...

HP laserJet Pro MFP127fn

In LinuxMint 19.1 my printer is not working. I've waited for a fix from HP, they say that their hplip-3.19.3 fixes whatever, but it does not.
This printer still works well under Win 7, but no longer under LinuxMint.
Is there a fix from LinuxMint, or any workaround, etc. ?

Thanks

Re: After 19.1 install Thunderbird send mail freezes computer

I've tried finding the package maintainer for TBird without success, to get them to make what ever fix is needed. I've tried to get the moderator of this forum to do the same, apparently without success. Seems to me that there is something fundamentally wrong with what ever exists within the LinuxMi...

How to replace the 60.2 with the 60.4 version
would be very good
Thanks

Re: After 19.1 install Thunderbird send mail freezes computer

The following seems to have fixed things for me, but I can not say it will do so for others:
I re-did the Account Settings
Edit Tab | Account Settings

Re: After 19.1 install Thunderbird send mail freezes computer

Many thanks to everyone for your input and feedback. As this problem seems to be NOT unique to me / my computer, I'm going to send a message to Cosmo, a very capable man and administrator who has helped me in the past, asking him to get involved, maybe refer this to their programmers.
