Re: "Image For Linux"

I'm assuming you are talking about the TeraByte Unlimited product ? If so, I've been using their BIBM products for years, wouldn't use anything else. I like the fact I can have unlimited primary partitions in legacy mode, no need to bother with UEFI. This machine has Win10, Linux Mint, Ubuntu, in va...

Re: How to get Nemo to remember last dual Pane setting

Thanks for the reply, much appreciated ! I'll work on what you posted today. Seems like it should be a no-brainer to remember the last HD/ directories used on a restart. Maybe I'm just too spoilt using Directory Opus in Windows and Amiga for years. :roll: Thanks for posting that question in Github, ...

How to get Nemo to remember last dual Pane setting

I know the answer was posted somewhere in the Forums but can't find it.
I always start Nemo in Dual Pane mode and then I open one HD in one pane, and another HD in the other, but whenever I restart Nemo it's back to the same HD in both panes.

Re: Solitaire

One thing that irks me is that when you have won the game, there is no option to auto play all the cards, you have to put each card on the decks until they are all placed.

Re: Boot Loop ? Beeps twice 20 seconds apart.

Not much to be confused about. This version of Mint and your GPU/motherboard combo are incompatible. Life's to short to be obsessed with things like this. :) Either change GPU's or the version of Mint and move on. You say a previous version of Mint works so use that or a different flavour like Manja...

Re: Boot Loop ? Beeps twice 20 seconds apart.

Well if you have a spare GPU to try, go for it, that only takes a few minutes !

Not sure if you would have to do a new install of Mint for a GPU change, I would think not.

What GPU do you have for a few days ?

Re: Boot Loop ? Beeps twice 20 seconds apart.

One thing you could try if you really want to narrow down the cuprit.

Install Ubuntu on the SSD if your current Mint installation is not critical to keep.

I personally think it's something in Mint and your motherboard combo

Re: Starting hard drives during startup

As Flemur alluded to in his post above "Also you might be able to do this with a GUI thru the 'disks' program". I have multiple HD's and I automounted all the ones I wanted simply by going to : Start menu/Preferences/Disks, then pick the HD you want and click on the gear icon below the HD (automount...

Re: What Software R U Using for System Backups

Re: [SOLVED] Opera doesn't open maximized in 19.2 (Cinnamon)

This is what I've just done and it appears to be working ok, even after an Opera update. In Opera go Menu > Settings. In the "On startup" section select "Retain tabs from previous session" (optionally select "Display the start page first" option if you want that). This seems to cause Opera to remem...

Well, since I did all that, it keeps crashing. Well, to be more precise, the visuals crash I think. The mouse still moves and the music still plays. I can't click on anything though.

Re: Boot Loop ? Beeps twice 20 seconds apart.

So what Nvidia driver was you trying ?
I'm using 390.116 as that driver has always worked fine for my Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB.
I tried the recommended one once (430.26) and had problems, so I used the old one and everything was fine.

I don't know if anyone is following this, but I thought I would add an extra bit of info.
I am still following this to see if you get a resolution.

I guess we'll have to see if a new , verified live Mint USB gives you a different result.

Re: Boot Loop ? Beeps twice 20 seconds apart.

Sounds like a problem with the SSD to me.
I would say to test the ram with memtest but if it runs fine with Windows then I still suspect the SSD.
Have you ran the Crucial system scanner and the Crucial Storage executive tool ?
