Re: change boot sequence

That's interesting, I get the same warning, but it seems to be irrelevant, because it actually worked, and I got this, try again and look for this popping up. # If you change this file, run 'update-grub' afterwards to update # /boot/grub/grub.cfg. # For full documentation of the options in this file...

Re: Folder files not listed in alphabetical order

I'm using mate 19.3, and if I click on the top in the column header it sorts for that column, click again and it reverses the order.
So clicking the top of the name column sorts for alphabetical order, clicking in the date column sorts for date, etc.
And every linux distro I've used behaves that way

Re: How to Dual Boot with existing Win 7 Installation

Sorry I can't give you a step by step guide, my memory isn't up to it. But be assured it doesn't need to be complicated. There is an, "install alongside" option. This will let you shrink the windows partition so mint can be installed in the recovered space. The linux boot loader, "Grub" will also be...

Re: Timeshift insufficient disk space

So how often is it creating an image? And how many entries are there. One timeshift file isn't all that big. I only do it once a month or so.

Re: Upgraded Mint today and now stuck in 800x600 mode

Sorry, I got that wrong, I didn't look closely enough at your screen shot. I just assumed, as you'd just done a kernel update, you'd be using the latest.

Too just remove 5.3.0-26 stay on the first page, without hitting "remove kernels" and instead click on 5.3.0-26 that will give you the opportunity to delete just that one. The "remove kernels", automatically gets rid of what you don't need, but don't do that until getting rid of 5.3.0-26 You have a ...

Re: SOLVED - Repairing GRUB.

If I'm understanding correctly, you'll still have a a working mint OS after you install the cloned windows disk. It should just be a matter of

Code: Select all

sudo update-grub
And bingo, your new windows clone will be in your boot menu.
