Re: Question about installing Mint in a virtual machine

How about the same advice I already gave?
Sorry GM, yes I did that and that got rid of the nag screen about the graphics driver, thanks for that. I was just wondering why that directory under /Desktop was missing that kukamuumuka referred to.

Re: Question About OS

Your hardware matters little when you install to a virtual machine... So how can I stop that warning coming up every time I start Linux VM? It seems to be running ok.

Re: Question About OS

As you can see I have selected Ubuntu (64-bit). Should that not be Debian (64-bit) as it is on my other Linux machines. No. Linux Mint literally *is* Ubuntu. Except for the Mint-only packages. Thank you pjotr, I had a backup done prior to doing this so restored it and started again and by default i...

Re: Forum Bookmarks

An alternate solution is to print as PDF those articles of interest. Comes in extremely handy when setting up a new machine. There are times when that information is needed before establishing an Internet connection. Amazing how many can also fit on that old USB flash drive that might be laying aro...

Re: Stacer - good utility

Thank you all for your kind advice; as you can see I am still a relative novice when it comes to Linux. Can you please give me a terminal command so that I can take it off my system, where I can I prefer to work in Terminal as it helps me understand the commands more by using them. Many thanks

I came across, what I think is a good utility and helps explain to me what is running, ability to close stuff to regain space and many other things. Wondered what the gurus think of it? https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2019/05/sta ... ner-ubuntu

Re: PC does not fully shutdown from Linux

Let's first try that acpi=force kernel parameter. I'm fairly sure the shutdown thing will be repairable, if need be through specifuc USB-power related shutdown scripts (the keyboard not being recognized in the USB3 ports by the BIOS will not be) but first need to know if acpi=force] does anything u...

Re: PC does not fully shutdown from Linux

Well I hope your festivities went well and to that end I wish a very happy New Year. Right I have now done all my testing and it looks almost 100% that this old machine does not like a USB 3.0 appliance plugged into the USB 3.0 adaptors. I received a new WD Elements 1TB USB 3.0 external drive today ...

Re: PC does not fully shutdown from Linux

Thanks for reporting back. Does your BIOS have the option to disable USB Legacy support, either universally or for USB3 specifically? If yes, does it change anything? Any other suspicious-looking USB (-power) related BIOS options? If no go, I don't believe you ended up trying acpi=force as a kernel...
