Re: adding another user

Also, is the new user's home account placed into the separate home partition? I wonder if I decide at some point to install a different Linux OS to root; I'd like to leave home intact. Thanks again. This question was answered by gm10, but I'll give it another shot from a slightly different directio...

Re: Wireless Scanning - HP 4520

According to the HP HPLIP Supported Printers page , your printer has been supported since at least 2.8.5. What this means is the version of hplip found in the LM repository will (should?) support your device just fine. Suggest you run each of the following commands, in turn: $sudo apt install hplip ...

Re: How do I compile C code?

An IDE can get you 90% of the way there, but if you eventually want to be writing C programs of any sophistication you will want to become familiar with, among other things: The compiler (gcc) and it’s options (the man pages will be your friend for this man gcc ). A familiarity with make (may be the...

Re: to install and launch c++ compiler

Compilers are like any other command-line tool - they need to know what you want them to do. You tell them what you want by providing information in the form of arguments. Compilers need to know, among other things: Location (and name) of the source file Location and name of the object file to be pr...

Re: My journey of replacing my HDD with an SSD

I tried that. I had to shrink the / and /home partitions to a size that would fit the new disk. Then I wanted to copy a logical partition from the old disk to a primary partition on the new disk which Gparted won't do. That's when I found out it wouldn't boot and tried boot-repair several times, wh...

Re: LM 19 not working right

They do, but not in the terminal where those commands are already in use for other actions. In the terminal, you can use the copy, cut and paste shortcuts if you add the shift key to them. So: ctrl + v + shift for paste, and so on. That's pretty cool to know - didn't know that. I've been using the ...

Re: pros/cons?

Pros LMDE get's much/most of the LM project software (like Cinnamon) updates before the LM does. I don't know for sure the reason, but I would guess that LMDE users are a psuedo-beta tester for the LM project sofware. Operating Systems have a feel to them - at least it seems that way to me - and I ...

In fact, there were two such incidents. I opted to open a copy of the system monitor and watched the CPU activity. There was pl...
