Re: Why do I install amd64 packages? Problem with Mint installation

Well Gparted is not installed by default. So you can't find it in the menu if you don't install it.
For the other apps, the best would be to post an error message or a better description of what happens. Otherwise, we can't really help you.

Re: Why do I install amd64 packages? Problem with Mint installation

Your HDD where windows is installed has several partitions or only 1? By default W10 doesn't shutdown but hibernate. And if you didn't shutdown correctly, I think you can't mount the HDD in Linux. I would also install the proprietary driver for your Nvidia card. You may get a better result. You have...

Did you reboot after installing the kernel? You need to reboot so that it becomes the active kernel.

Re: Why do I install amd64 packages?

Your processor is compatible 64 bits. Therefore you have installed Linux Mint with the 64 bits architecture. That's the reason why you are downloading the amd64 version of the packages. This is just the name of the 64 bits architecture. It doesn't relate to the fact that you have an AMD or Intel pro...

Re: how to install python

you can launch a terminal and type in python3. This will give you the python prompt to interact with Python.
But the best is to open the text editor and type there your script. Then you can execute it with: python3 ./path/to/your/script.py

Re: What is my admin password

It looks like that you didn't install your system in the virtual box. You are running a live edition each time. Which means that if you shutdown the virtual machine, it loses all the settings and all the modifications you made. I have this feeling due to the name of your user. It's the default one f...

Re: Adding mint repos to ubuntu minimal install

I would do it at the end of the install. Just edit your sources file: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/official-package-repositories.list (or add a new file in the folder) and add the linux Mint repo. deb http://packages.linuxmint.com serena main upstream import backport romeo deb-src http://packages.linuxmi...

I'm glad you found a place you like.

Re: AMD Drivers on Linux mint 18.1 "Serena"

apt upgrade is dangerous and will upgrade the whole system without taking into account the level as defined in the Update Manager. If you want to keep your system up to date, it's better to use the Update Manager.

Thanks a lot for this suggestion. It looks perfect.
If I were difficult, I would ask for the code to be open source, but it may be a little bit too much. :mrgreen:
