Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon - installing/updating kernels

:?: Just a couple of weeks ago, I did a clean install of Mint 18 Cinnamon. Without installing anything (apps and such) except for the initial required updates after the install, I proceeded to install the (at that time) latest kernel; which was 4.4.0-31. After attempting to install the kernel, it re...

Re: Unable to load Mint 18 Cinnamon using kernel 4.4.0-31

No ... I do not have any encrypted disks. Right now I'm still in the process of installing "my stuff" after the fresh install of Mint 18. For now, I'm going to stay with kernel 4.4.0-21. Maybe later on I will possibly attempt to upgrade the kernel and see what happens. One other thing I mi...

Re: ---Resolved (sort of)--- Unable to load Mint 18 Cinnamon using kernel 4.4.0-31

----RESOLVED (sort of)---- After all was said and done, I ended up doing clean (fresh) reinstall of Mint 18 Cinnamon. At this time, I am running on kernel 4.4.0-21. I'm a bit unsure if I should attempt to install kernel 4.4.0-31. One thing that bothers me is the fact that any new kernel is always fl...

Unable to load Mint 18 Cinnamon using kernel 4.4.0-31

I just installed Mint 18 Cinnamon which had kernel 4.4.0-21 by default. I did the updates and, for the most part, all went well. I noticed that kernel 4.4.0-31 was listed (unchecked) with a "flag" of "5". Anyway, I marked 4.4.0-31 for install and proceeded. Now, I have two kernel...

Re: Terminal window not active when opened

Well, I tell you this ... the problem is minor for now. Mostly inconvenient. So, I am going to close this issue mainly because I do not want to be messing around and REALLY screw things up primarily since Mint Mate 17.3 is working. Thanks for the assist.

I truly don't know. And, I don't where to look. The situation opening the terminal is mainly just an inconvenience more than anything else.

Terminal window not active when opened

I am using Mint 17.3 LTS Mate. I have been having a nuisance problem with the Terminal window. Every time I open the Terminal, the window is NOT active. I have to click on the window in order to proceed. How do I make this window, and any other windows (when opened) be active? Another thing that I h...

Re: (SOLVED - Sort Of ...) Themes and icons not installed

This is to inform anyone watching this post that, rather than taking chances modifying anything and really screw things up, I determined that it was in my best interest to just do a "clean" install of Mint 17.3. I have just finished the clean install and an in the process of restoring/re-i...

Re: Cannot boot Mint 17.2 - Only Memtest runs

Sorry guys. Nothing is working. I will be trying a couple more things. However, if still "NO JOY" I will have no recourse but to do a "fresh" install of Mint 17.2. If I remember, and I get grub2 restored or not, I will let you know.

Re: Cannot boot Mint 17.2 - Only Memtest runs

Yes .. I do have the 17.2 on DVD (iso). However, when I comes to using the terminal I am at a complete loss. As for the other option(s), I do have Gparted but can't use it if I can't run Mint. I do not have Parted Magic (at least not yet). I do have any clue about what to do after "chroot"...

:shock: :!: :!: I don't know what happened. I can't boot Mint 17.2 at startup/reboot. Only the memtest starts. When I reboot and I press and hold the SHIFT key I can get to (open) the grub menu. The menu shows only the Memtest as an option. I need specific, step by step, guide/instructions about fix...
