Re: Windows 10 / Linux Mint: dual booting F12 gives a black screen

Enable secure boot right now. Install easybcd from Neosmart https://neosmart.net/ Follow their instructions for a dual boot. Win10 is waiting for EFI. Use EasyBCD to troubleshoot Win 10, back up and repair the bootloader. Boot/install Linux as a sidekick. Don't use bootrec/fixmbr or bootrec/fixboot ...

Re: Problem logging in LM 20

apt is a shell script and invokes sudo if needed (simple explanation). You will find it here: /usr/share/bash-completion/completions/apt

Did you start apt update?

Is the usual stuff installed and do you see the Logon screen, is LM loading additional drivers (aka have you ticked that box?) and test your chosen keyboard. 2nd do the o...

Re: Unable to Install as no mouse or keyboard

I do directly start the update manager in the welcome screen and reboot (or use apt in aterminal). Fix most problems with mouse, keyboard, usb, drives and monitors. This is valid for new installations and internal upgrades. Also I suggest Ventoy instead of Rufus https://www.ventoy.net/en/index.html ...

I join the question. This strange behaviour happens on an old Samsung Laptop (1GB ram). Windows runs fine, but with Arch, Puppy or other small flavours the cursors cruses to the top of the screen.
