Re: Newbie: Dual booting with WIN 10, but don't see Windows drives

Thank you for that help! I now have a drive I want to format to ntfs while IN Linux Mint KDE, is this the command syntax:

sudo fdisk -t ntfs /dev/(name)

?

I get an unsupported disk label. I did partition the drive using KDE partition Manager, but don't see a way to format the drive using a GUI.

Re: screen savers on 18.1 kde?

For me, my computer experience partly involves being happy, happy that I can not only do somethings, but happy with how it feels, and pretty graphics make one feel good, they are fun and relazing and pleasing to the eyes, same reason I ogle Halley Barry. Would love to be able to find a way to make a...

Ok, I think I saw something about this, a post somewhere that said that Mint was obviating the use of screensavers? Anyways, couldn't find a configuration anywhere for turning them on, so I downloaded xscreensaver and the add on, but don't know how to make them work beyond actually choosing to run t...

Re: Newbie: Dual booting with WIN 10, but don't see Windows drives

Great, no errors! Let me check mnt and see. Why didn't gparted allow these and why did it show them to be zfs? I want to add something I didn't think to tell you, these drives came out of some sort of server or something, they are enterprise drives, was that a factor? Thank you! Now I have to learn ...

Re: Newbie: Dual booting with WIN 10, but don't see Windows drives

Ok, for those drives, it shows zfs for the file system, they are 3 TB drives with a gpt partition table. Does that affect this?

Re: Newbie: Dual booting with WIN 10, but don't see Windows drives

I did that first one and it sees the drives just fine, last night.

I just did gparted and it sees the drives but mount is greyed out

Also, now in dolphin, devices is gone in the left side.

Newbie: Dual booting with WIN 10, but don't see Windows drives

Hi, I'm new to LInux, though I used it briefly many years ago in a dual boot for a while. I have set up Mint 18.1 KDE to dual boot with Windows 10 and they are booting fine with GRUB, but several things seem to not be there from the old days and I can't seem to find an answer to the following questi...
