Re: LM19 WiFi not showing in network settings

Thanks Andy (lazarus), I forgot to post the error log as well (at the end). Ideas are most appreciated right now as I am still stuck with this problem. I just finished creating a new installation usb but think I should let the laptop rest for the night. I have restarted my system so many times in th...

Re: LM19 WiFi not showing in network settings

Continuing on the hypothesis that I am missing drivers for my rtl8821ce wireless network adapter chipset, I found the page below and requested a download link for a linux operating system. They currently only have a .exe download file which I understand will only work on windows (or at least I don't...

Re: LM19 WiFi not showing in network settings

Perhaps I should have added in the original post: wifi works fine in W10, there is no option to disable wifi in the firmware of this machine (formerly "BIOS"), and there is no physical switch on the laptop to turn wifi off. **EDIT: there IS an airplane-mode button, and it works fine both on W10 and ...

Re: Dual boot Mint 19 with win 10 - problem with grub

@JVR Even as I choose to pre-partition the target for installation, the 'Something else' option allows the same functionality, and I sometimes define my patitions there as well. Noted. I wrote about the solution to my problem in the post below. Thank you for your help! https://forums.linuxmint.com/...

Be sure to report your results here. This will be excellent material for others having this issue.
Cheers
Did so. Your answer on basic preparation steps (use of GParted to designate free space), proved to be invaluable to me. Thank you very much for your time. My problem was solved.

Re: Dual boot Mint 19 with win 10 - problem with grub

I think we all had this same issue. I was told by all41 that I should try to install without having the equipment connected to the internet. I haven't done that yet because I have an issue which I think everyone on this thread already passed and I was hoping one of you could help me. Questions: when...

Hello, eternal newbie here. Recently I purchased a pretty laptop with Windows 10 already installed. I decided to keep W10 basically because it is convenient to have it at my job. I downloaded the Linux Mint 19 .iso file and created an UEFI usb for installation. I shrunk W10 drive space to allow 0.6+...
