Logitech G700 Pre-Programmed button now working wirelessly (Wired Works)

I have a Logitec G700 that has 13 programmable buttons (using the Logitech software). I've programmed them with specific key combinations and Key Strokes to expedite repetitive tasks. I've upgraded one of my OS's to Mint 20 (Cinnamon). I've noticed that when I am connected wirelessly that these prog...

Same Question. ANYONE ??? The way I see it, the problem of the original poster (and for me) is actually three problems: 1) Stupid implementation of write-cache for removable usb drives . Writing buffers are useful for hard disks, but it's a completely stupid thing to have for usb flash drives. It of...

Foxit Reader is now working with Linux.

I have not had any issues with it to date (been using it for the last couple of months).

Re: File transfer hangs for a long time before finishing

Has anyone got a solution for this problem? Same computer, same USB, same USB port, same file being copied . . . the ONLY difference is the OS. Login to Mint 19.2 and copy the file to the USB drive and it haaaaaaaaaaangs forever before completing. Login to Windows 10 and copy the file to the USB dri...

Re: File transfer hangs for a long time before finishing

I'd like to +1 this . . . . I have been running into this issue for some time with mint (all through 19.x and if I remember correctly 18.3 as well). File transfer starts of fast, slows down, then stops at about 99% and just sits there and does nothing. If I wait a REALLY long time it MIGHT 'finish',...

Re: UUID read from??? sudo efibootmgr --verbose

Well, if you cannot add it from within the UEFI (what a terrible UEFI, is that Insyde?) then you've got to do it from Linux via efibootmgr that you already found. sudo efibootmgr --create --label "GRUB2" --loader "\EFI\UBUNTU\SHIMX64.EFI" -d /dev/sdX -p Y Replace sd X with the designation of the de...

Re: UUID read from??? sudo efibootmgr --verbose

You are confusing what's on disk and what's stored in the UEFI. My command only adds to what's stored in the UEFI, it doesn't affect any of your files. Super. Thanks for the clarifications! It is very much appreciated. My UEFI doesn't allow me to add an entry, but it DOES allow me to 'Delete' one. ...

Re: UUID read from??? sudo efibootmgr --verbose

It's simple though. Your bad UEFI is only auto-detecting the Windows boot loader while ignoring other boot loaders in the ESP. I'm going to repeat back what it is I think I've understood: So the UUID for the boot,efi sda1 partition "IS" being stored in the computers UEFI somewhere. (It's the only w...

Re: UUID read from??? sudo efibootmgr --verbose

. . . but you can manually select/add the boot device from the UEFI's boot menu. Yeah, I don't have an option to "Add" that as a boot device. I can change the order of things, but not "Add" another one. Or you do the same as you did with your Win10 partition and clone the UUID so your Linux root pa...

Re: UUID read from??? sudo efibootmgr --verbose

Further to my last post . . . then why does the Win10 entry have it correct?

the Grub entry gets skipped completely, and then just goes to the Windows boot loader.

I know I'm missing something here, but I'm not sure what it is.

Thanks again for the help.

Re: UUID read from??? sudo efibootmgr --verbose

Thanks for the reply gm10

I was worried that it was going to be a bit wordy . . . I thought I'd try being thorough first so as to not appear that I was trying to be spoon fed :) .

If I understand what you've written, the UUID of the Boot Device is saved in the UEFI the laptop itself (not the SSD)?

Ok. Then I guess this is solved.
It just struck me as being odd we couldn't check this.
