[SOLVED] Making a shortcut for the keyboard switcher

Hi! Does anyone know how I can create a keyboard shortcut to cycle through keyboards for the keyboard switcher in Cinnamon? It works well enough with the mouse, but I am in the process of (slowly) making vocabulary flash cards in Mnemosyne, and am having to switch keyboard layouts rather often for t...

Re: Toshiba Satellite A-100 - USB live installer ignored

I was thinking that's probably the case.
I'll keep plugging at it and see if I can get it going somehow.
Thanks for your time, though.

Re: RedNoebook not working now

Run it from a terminal. You will probably get an errormessage. I did that. Got an error message about a missing thing called pyyaml (or some such). so I did this: sudo apt-get install --reinstall python3-yaml And now it mostly works. The Cloud and Tag panels don't display anything now. But at least...

Re: RedNoebook not working now

Maybe it doesn't work because the ppa version you installed isn't for the same ubuntu release your mint is based on? Backwards and forwards compatibility just don't work in Linux so you should install software for your release if you are going to expect it to work. I'd try uninstalling it, getting ...

Re: Toshiba Satellite A-100 - USB live installer ignored

Is the USB bootable? Can you test booting to it on another pc? It didn't occur to me to try booting another computer with that USB stick. I booted another computer just fine. However, I did notice that the other computer's BIOS set up recognized it as a USB HDD. But the Toshiba didn't show that in ...

Re: Toshiba Satellite A-100 - USB live installer ignored

@ Mynaaardt How did you install Peppermint 7.? Also with a USB-stick.? Maybe you need to boot from a Live Linux DVD+R. If no internal DVD-drive, get an external USB DVD-drive/burner. Another lightweight Linux distro that's compatible with very old computers is Linux Lite(= a 900MB ISO file). .........

Toshiba Satellite A-100 - USB live installer ignored

Hi! I wanted to try a live install of Linux Mint 18.2 Xfce on an old warhorse of a laptop. It's a Toshiba Satellite A100. It is old, and a 32 bit machine. But made to last. Living by "waste not want not", I wanted to see how it does running Lubuntu on it. I got to the BIOS to switch the boot order. ...

Re: Mono won't start KeePass from my flash drive

I could be wrong, but I thought you were talking about running KeePass using the (Windows) PortableApps launcher.

If that is the case, then using WINE should be the best solution.

Re: Can't Install, Trying to Dual Boot

One mistake I made was overlooking the boot order in the BIOS showing up two entries for the live USB I was trying to boot from. One shows as UEFI and the other does not. Of course I kept choosing the wrong one (the not-UEFI one). :roll: Hopefully it's something that simple. Worked fine for me when ...

Re: Can one upgrade (sort of) from MATE to Cinnamon?

Right! Finally got somewhere! :mrgreen: I downloaded 18.2 beta. Then I verified it right and proper (as I should've done before). Then installed it on a USB with UNetbootin and worked the first time out. Hooray! It was kind of late in the day when I finally got around to getting my desktop to boot ...

Re: Can one upgrade (sort of) from MATE to Cinnamon?

Okay, so I'll just assume that the Mint 18.1 Cinnamon ISO I downloaded is a good file but, for whatever reason, doesn't want to work on my computer nor my desktop. Which could just be because they're both ASUS machines and might be a bit temperamental at my end. :? So, I'll try to download the 18.2 ...

Re: Can one upgrade (sort of) from MATE to Cinnamon?

Yup, verify the ISO and I think there's an option in the grub menu to check the integrity of the files on the burned disc. Give it a few tries. I've experienced seemingly similar issues, then suddenly it worked for no reason I could tell. Installing different desktops can cause issues, which is not...

Hi all! I couldn't seem to get any answers to why a live installer for Mint 18.1 (Cinnamon) wouldn't boot my computer. Even though Mint Xfce and Mint MATE live installs worked just fin in booting my computer. My original post about this was here: https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=248...
