Re: Can't copy/paste or create new folder on secondary hard drive

A newly formatted partition will initially be owned by root since the root user is the only one that can do that. What's needed is for you to claim ownership of the file ...

Re: Warning: Failed to connect to lvmetad. Falling back to device scanning

The link you included had a LUKS partition /dev/sda5: UUID="e50493aa-57d2-404b-8d1b-a0cbbd2a6c9c" TYPE="crypto_LUKS" PARTUUID="326fb561-05" Yours shows no reference to a LUKS partition. You do have an ext4 partition on /dev/sda1, however it reports Partition: ID-1: / size: 3.89 GiB used: 112.1 MiB I...

Did the timeshift restore replace your edited /etc/fstab :?:

If so you should be good to go.

Re: Failed Install: Opera Installation for Mint with same ERROR message???

The package opera-stable_65.0.3467.48_amd64.deb indicates it's for the x86_64 architecture which is the 64-bit version of the x86 instruction set.

Code: Select all

[bill@xps-tina] ~/script ->$ arch
x86_64
[bill@xps-tina] ~/script ->$ 
So it's impossible for that package to be installed.

Re: Can no longer boot 19.2 past Emergency Mode

Yes, that does sound like a problem with fstab,

In emergency mode the partition is mounted read only so to be able to edit fstab you'll have to run sudo mount -vo remount,rw / first.

In addition if it does need an fsck you can't do it from emergency - run fsck from the installation media.

Hello nati Image

Welcome to Linux Mint and the Linux Mint forum :)

With an AMD Athlon II X4 650 processor and 8 GB of memory any desktop version would be fine,

I'm partial to the Mate desktop and usually recommend it to new users.

Good Lunk :wink:
