Re: Crash on boot [Solved !]

Have done. But again, I wonder if, in the event, this simple (when, that is, one knows how to do it) reparation hadn't sufficed, if Timeshare could have been brought to bear - and if so, just how ?... A timeshift restore would not have fixed this issue. Only fsck. Cheers. So it seems, given that th...

Re: Crash on boot [Solved !]

Any suggestions ?... Yes. Read the page at the link I gave you. I don't see how you could miss the instruction it gives: fsck /dev/sda1 . My most profound apologies, catweazel ; not my best day, I'm afraid. But after booting from a flash drive and then running sudo fsck /dev/sda1 in a terminal from...

Re: Crash on boot

But how do I then run fsck «from there» (which I interpret to mean from /sda1). If I simply enter fsck after the prompt, I get : https://www.maketecheasier.com/check-repair-filesystem-fsck-linux/ Alas, catweazel , the following is what appears in a terminal when I run fsck /sda1 : fsck_sda1_2019-04...

Re: Crash on boot

I've been unable to find any way to run fsck manually.... Start a live session and use lsblk to identify the correct drive, then do the fsck from there. Thanks for your reply, catweazel ; now we\re getting somewhere ! I had simply forgotten the option of booting from a flash drive (which is not wit...

Re: Crash on boot

I would start by following the instructions in the console: /dev/sda1 : UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY ; run fsck MANUALLY Open a terminal and run fsck and post the results in your reply. Thanks for your speedy reply, Larry, ! That's precisely my problem - as the system refuses to boot, I can't access a ...

Re: File manager problem

I think this problem is caused by the new desktop/panel layout. There are two now; one behaves as it did before, one behaves as you described here. Try opening the welcome screen, then the First Steps tab, and switching to the other desktop layout. I believe it's the 'Traditional' that you want. Di...

Re: File manager problem

Hello again Henri, Nemo works the same way here if it is first reduced by a click on the "+" in the minimise, maximise, close options. You can also elect to view only the main file screen rather than replicating the sidebar or overlapping it. I am puzzled - what is your desired outcome? Fn keys are...

Re: File manager problem

You can open nemo in as many workspaces as you have activated but never two full-sized versions in the same workspace. You can, however split the screen to show two nemos side-by-side by pressing F3 (together with your Fn key). If you minimise the displayed nemo you can then invoke another one and ...

File manager Problem [Solved !]

I've just had occasion to reinstall 64-bit Mint 19.1 on an old Acer X1935 computer. To my surprise, and contrary to all my previous experience with Mint, I find that if I launch a file manager window by clicking the Files icon in the panel and then click the icon again, instead of opening a new file...

Re: Problem scaling login screen - Solved !

What is the correct procedure if I not only wish to view a file of this type, but also edit it ?... xed admin:///etc/default/grub (the three consecutive slashes are intentional and no mistake) You'll need to enter your password twice, at least the first time that you use admin:// in a session.

Re: Problem scaling login screen - Solved !

Good hat it's solved. As you've wrongly used sudo for launching a graphical application (Xed), I advise to make sure that the permissions are correct for all files in your home directory: sudo chown -R -v $USER:$USER $HOME Thanks for your input, Pjotr ; I have followed your advice.

Re: Problem scaling login screen

Just out of curiousity : generally speaking I use sudo xed /etc/default/grub to edit this file ; in that case I only need to authenticate once. If, however, I use xed admin:///etc/default/grub as you suggest, I have to authenticate twice in a row. Do you have any information about this matter ?... ...

Re: Problem scaling login screen

Use this command in the Terminal to open the grub file for editing: xed admin:///etc/default/grub Uncomment this line (remove the pound sign) and change the resolution to 800x600: #GRUB_GFXMODE=640x480 So it will look like this: GRUB_GFXMODE=800x600 Update grub: sudo update-grub Many thanks again, ...
