[SOLVED] Installing Linux Mint 19? Either Intel or AMD will work?

In the testing sessions for 19 I see references to editions of Mint 19 for i386 processors and for amd64 processors. But when I download 19 there is only one Cinnamon edition. Is it safe to assume that the installation will recognize the processor and install for the one you have? I recently got a T...

SADP utility for Mint Linux?

I'm just getting started on setting up a home security system using a LaView Cube DVR. I'm using the manual for the Cube and the page linked to below: https://www.laviewsecurity.com/files/documentation/user_manual_d1_dvr_d5100.pdf It wants me to "install a SADP program" and I can't seem to...

[SOLVED] Panel Pop Ups - How to Disable?

When I move my cursor over some items in the Panel I see a small rectangular label with the name of the app or menu, on other apps that I have minimized I get a much larger square pop up. I don't want to see the larger pops, just the labels or even nothing at all if it has to be that way. I can't se...

Re: if i use "sudo apt-get install kdenlive" will i get the latest version?

When I installed Kdenlive from an appimage download it comes up in the full screen mode and I am unable to minimize it (no typical "- + X" controls are seen) and it stays full screen even when I go to Settings > Exit Full Screen mode and unmark that option. And the Ctrl +Shift + F command ...

Re: [SOLVED] Copying 18.2 Install to New Hard Drive

Thanks for your reply, it has been helpful just in the suggestion to run those commands. I have removed the 500 GB drive for now and it is now using the home and swap partitions on the 1 TB drive. I would have to restore it to that configuration where the other partitions were used and run those com...

Re: [SOLVED] Copying 18.2 Install to New Hard Drive

I have a follow up question about this. I was able to attach the old 500 GB drive to the laptop using a SATA HDD caddy that I can fit in place of the SATA CD/DVD drive. When I boot the system the root partition on the 1TB drive is mounted and active but the system does not mount the 1 TB drive home ...

Re: [SOLVED] Copying 18.2 Install to New Hard Drive

OK, thanks for the explanation on that. I guess the first try not working was due to the MBR not being set up? One of the problems I might have with that is that I was working on a laptop with a single HDD bay and when I plugged the other hard drive in with it running off of the SATA/mini USB interf...

OK, it took two tries but it worked! On the first try when Clonezilla finished and I restarted on the new drive it would not boot to the log in prompt. I had nothing on screen (Mint logos, etc.) and it showed short intermittent and frequent disk activity but that went on for 45 minutes and I finally...

Re: Cinnamon in Mint 18.2 - Can't Move Icons

Right click on a blank spot on the Desktop, then Click on Desktop and a fly out menu will come up that controls the icons. You will probably find Auto-Arrange checked, choose Align to grid and that will let you arrange them as you like, they will snap to invisible points that sort neaten things up.....
