Re: lenovo ideapad 320s installation

Don't have a legacy option in bios I think I need to do this select SATA Operation AHCI instead of Intel. https://triplescomputers.com/blog/uncategorized/solution-switch-windows-10-from-raidide-to-ahci-operation/ or https://samnicholls.net/2016/01/14/how-to-switch-sata-raid-to-ahci-windows-10-xps-13...

My daughter has new laptop. Want to ditch windows and install mint. I followed the instructions here (downloaded brand new mint 19 64 bit put on USB stick using mint tools - this seems OK). Followed instructions here https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Linux-Discussion/Ideapad-320s-and-Linux-Fedora/td-p/37...

Re: my fan is always on

will try mrmajik45's link as I understand it disabling fan always on in the bios does not permanently switch the fan off but puts it under the control of the OS where it should cycle on an off as required. That's certainly true of my machine where the fan is certainly working. The exit point is clea...

my fan is always on

my fan is always on. The only exception to this is when I boot it goes off at the login screen then comes on as I get to the desktop. Its speed seems to vary but that's it. I set the bios to fan off. I cannot find a way of determining its speed but don't think my laptop is that hot or needs to be on...

I did an upgrade from 18.1 to 18.2. Its sorted some problems, not sorted others, but caused new ones. Plus points very quick and easy. However the main problem is with my panels or more specifically applets which keep crashing. The problem is not apparent until I select transparency. Then almost all...

Re: libreoffice calc cell problem

It happens when I type into a new cell ie. the first time I type in a particular cell. I've worked out what the problem is. Its an opengl issue it happens without being enabled. However in mint 18.1 enabling it caused the menus to look indistinct and a bit blurry. Since I've updated to 18.2 this pro...
