Re: How To Create a System Image With Macrium Reflect Rescue Disk In Linux Mint.

Thanks for this. I already use MR on Win10 so already have the full up to date product (had to use it the other day as the most recent update trashed my disk s/w wise). I suppose the only thing is you can't set up a schedule. I also assume that creating an image on an NTFS volume is irrelevant becau...

Re: How to update your kernel for Meltdown

That worked well for me, in 18.3 Cinnamon and the Update Manager tells me I'm using 4.13.0-26 (this also shows up in the inxi -S command). Question? Is it absolutely necessary to remove 4.8, 4.10 if the system is showing correct updated kernel? TIA.

Changing Login Characteristics

I've been using Mint 17.3 Cinnamon on a Dell Latitude E6230 for around six weeks. I use Linux more than Windows 10 (running on a more powerful processor) because it boots really fast & flies when it's loaded. One issue I have, and this could be me, periodically the system expects me to provide my us...

17.3 Cinnamon asks for user name sometimes

Hi. This is my first question. It feels like this may be slightly dumb but here goes. I'm the only user of the machine. On installation I created a single account as an administrator. I've read that the root superuser account will use the password I created for my account to let me make changes to t...

Hello from Glossop in the UK

Have been registered on the forum since 2012 but this is the first time I've begun to use Linux for real rather than dabbling. This choice was rather forced on me by the system board of my 7 year old Toshiba laptop, failing. Windows Vista had been installed with only one BSOD during that whole time....
