Re: ffDiaporama won't launch

The Software Manager version is 2.1, the same as the last release from 2014 on their website. It looks like the download available from their site would give you the 1.6 version from 2013(edit: that's actually the LMDE version - debian based), quite older and likely possibly not usable or even insta...

Re: Booting up issue

Oh, my apologies, I didn't see the reply.

You will not be able to remove the kernel that is currently in use.

You should boot to a previous kernel as mentioned, and then you can remove that -60 problem kernel.

Interesting. How long ago was this?
That was a year and a half ago I'd say, -maybe 2. yea, possible bug situation I suppose.

I'm guessing it won't be hard to get it booting in legacy mode once wannabelinuxguy is trying to do that specifically on purpose.

Re: Cannot boot after installing Linux Mint Cinnamon

1. Work through the BIOS settings and see whether you can find something which will force legacy boot. If you find a likely candidate, post a photo. 2. In order to eliminate one source of uncertainty, reburn the ISO to USB drive using Rufus. 3. Boot the USB and check whether it's booting in BIOS or...

that 4.15.0-60 kernel has been giving issues in certain situations, see here: https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=301549 So, you want to boot to the previous kernel. That should get you into the desktop easily. Then you can use the Update Manager and get into the "View -> Linux kernels...

Re: Installer hangs when I select full disk encryption

I don't know, let my try to dig it up, I had helped someone doing some research on IRC last year and that was the gist of what I got out of it, and I was on an older pc with MBR, no UEFI and not a specific /boot partition so that part caught my attention.

Re: Installer hangs when I select full disk encryption

You're booting the live session in UEFI mode? and you need the separated /boot. An MBR setup can't do it without doing some manual trickery because it involves what would amount to encrypting on the MBR, encrypting the bootloader, but that's a paradox of how does the motherboard BIOS even do that? I...

Re: "No signal" after grub, refuses to display on anything but TV

Did you just take updates and get a kernel update?

Boot to previous kernel with grub advanced option. See if that gets you anywhere.

It is not uncommon with a kernel upgrade that a proprietary gpu driver might have kernel module failure.

Re: How to vertically split the screen, pane?

I now do get it: I do have to place the cursor in the middle on top of the screen, hold the left mouse button down, and drag the cursor downwards, which results in the pane window being halved. If I do drag the cursor back up again, the split window expands to full screen again. It is just the tric...

Re: How to vertically split the screen, pane?

Just to add, for the historical data, xfce does it too(default settings). Drag to the left or right edge to get half screen tiling. You can further drag it up or down to get 4-way-split corner tiling. Horizontal tiling is not available with dragging to top or bottom, but there are key combos for all...

Re: Boot Loop ? Beeps twice 20 seconds apart.

for dmesg, you can use command dmesg | pastebin then just share the url with us. Are you suggesting that the beeps never happen unless you open chromium, period? it would be good to see if there's an exact error message that occurs when the beep happens. You can use command dmesg --follow to watch i...

Re: Boot Loop ? Beeps twice 20 seconds apart.

have you booted with nomodeset?

Anyway, onboard gpu. The inxi shows dual gpu but single monitor. Typically that would get an Optimus type of gpu switching setup, although fbdev is unloaded which is what you want anyway. Turn off the onboard.

Hi Zcot, how can I go forward, or backwards. thank U. Using Update Manager, there is probably a newer kernel available.

This is odd.

Anyway, you can't go past 4 standard partitions in MBR unless the 4th is...
