Re: Desktop Clock?

Yes that worked fine Karlchen. Is there a way of changing the clock face colour?

Re: PC does not fully shutdown from Linux

[ ... ] and hope my problem has not caused any of you an inconvenience. :oops: :roll: We're fine. Although I do hope that next time you pick an instant to have your computer hardware break it doesn't coincide with some of us experiencing the exact same symptoms from a kernel update at that exact sa...

Re: PC does not fully shutdown from Linux

Instead of choosing shutdown from the menu, choose 'logout'. The system should bring up the login screen. In the corner of the screen, then choose the power button, which will bring up another screen where you can choose shutdown. In my case, my laptop would then complete a shutdown with power off,...

Re: PC does not fully shutdown from Linux

Same, and one thing I did think of was your "CZ" medium shutting down correctly; that would be to say it's not hardware. I don't use CloneZilla, but I take it it's a bootable ISO. If you can distill which kernel it's running that might tell you something. But yes, same wishes, and possibly see you ...

Re: PC does not fully shutdown from Linux

Right I got round all this by writing down these commands from my other PC and reversed things via Terminal and I am now back to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash noefi" in GRUB on -70. As I said in my previous message I have to take my wife to hospital tomorrow and think I am going to have t...

Re: PC does not fully shutdown from Linux

Right I have found out another thing and that is when the stuff stops completely in shutdown, rather than cut the power off, if I shut the machine down completely by pressing the power button until the machine stops I do not get the bios reverting to safe mode. That means the machine boots up normal...

Re: PC does not fully shutdown from Linux

In sudo nano /etc/default/grub in the terminal, yes. And noting again, to after having changed /etc/defauult/grub in that manner, to run sudo update-grub , reboot, and only then try the shutdown (the parameter likely gives you a basic resolution in the GUI upon reboot, but we're just testing). I re...

Re: PC does not fully shutdown from Linux

Enough to see that as far as the software is concerned, shutdown is fine. Although this wouldn't be a fix, one of the best tests is probbely [edit: wow...] having you boot with the nouveau.modeset=0 kernel parameter, assuming you are still on nouveau rather than the binary nvidia driver now. To do ...

Re: PC does not fully shutdown from Linux

You actually installed 19.3 with installation of the LVM2,(logical volume manager)?...DAMIEN When I booted up after updating in Update Manager the question mark came up indicating an error and when I clicked on it, it said 19.3 was available to update. So I went for it via Update Manager, the same ...

Re: PC does not fully shutdown from Linux

Flashing keyboard -lights is what a kernel panic does... disc-activity could be explained by something panic-logging on shutdown... but the DVD drives?? Do try journalctl -b-1 (shift-G to go to the end) for viewing the system log from the previous boot but, frankly, I'm at this point too unsure of ...

Re: PC does not fully shutdown from Linux

Got into the GRUB menus/Advance options and chose -70 GRUB and then continued into the OS. I checked it and it was booted into the -70 kernel. So making sure those videos were working OK I then pulled the power lead out of the PC and left it for a couple of minutes or so. Then powered up again and t...

Re: PC does not fully shutdown from Linux

Yes, you have newer kernels installed, and grub would by default boot the newest without you manually interfering. If you kept up with regular updates before all this you still have -70 installed and you'd only need to select it from grub. Of course, if not, then yes, you'd need to in fact install ...

Re: PC does not fully shutdown from Linux

I believe we could be testing kernel parameters until we're blue in the face; I'd like you to first of all make reallyreallyreallyreallyreally (i.e., really) sure by installing 4.15.0-70 and booting into it from the Grub menu. Then, switch off PC and in fact, physically take power out for a minute ...

Re: PC does not fully shutdown from Linux

Very quick try; probably not; you can try opening a terminal, type sudo nano /etc/default/grub and add to the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT= the value "noefi". I.e., if it says "quiet splash" now, have it be GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash noefi" Type Ctr-X to exit and reply Y to save changes...

Re: PC does not fully shutdown from Linux

Good morning Rene, just got up as I suddenly remembered something. About a week ago I fitted a Pcie USB 3.0 adapter card in to the machine and have on order a front USB 3.0 2.5" adapter arriving after Christmas to enable me to connect USB 3 flash drives. I will be replacing the old floppy drive in i...

Re: Desktop Clock?

Will try this later Karlchen. At 78 I'm a bit slower getting going early in these cold mornings but will look into it later when I have a bit of time as my son is here for Christmas and I only see him once or sometimes twice a year. :P

Re: Desktop Clock?

Sounds good to me as I don't expect to be getting anywhere fast for some time yet. I am trying, I am making mistakes but jumping into Linux is like learning to walk again having spent 25 years working on another planet called M$S control. :lol:

Re: PC does not fully shutdown from Linux

Just doing some final tests. Shutting down my Backup Linux machine which I have Win10 installed as a VM, from the time I hit shutdown it takes 5 sec to shutdown, i.e. machine fans off and blank screen. On the Media machine it takes 10 secs for blank screen but fans and green power light at the front...

Re: PC does not fully shutdown from Linux

Good grief... the "AMD Phenom" instead of Intel denies the next barch of semi-useful suggestions -- and it's midnight here. I'll get back to this tomorrow. I'm an hour behind you and will take out the same leaf. I had my son arrive here for Christmas today from Switzerland where he lives and works,...
