[ Solved ] Thunderbird -- Sent folder disappeared

Early in April I needed to review and email I'd sent and discovered I had NO Sent emails as all! I'm not in the habit of turning back to Sent emails, hence I've got no idea how long this situation has been present. However I did not that Thunderbird was updated on 29 March 2019. I've been able to es...

I can establish a Folder in the same situation that's formatted in Fat32 just by clicking on the panel. However I can't achieve that simplicity with a partition formatted in ext4. So, ho...

Re: /etc/fstab items reqd for access permission?

Hi phd21 Sorry to worry you, it's only the Windows data in the $ sudo lsblk -a, $ sudo lsblk -f and $ sudo fdisk -l outputs that I deleted - just to keep the size down. :twisted: Of the 9 partitions, 6 are Windows: sda1 Basic data ntfs sda2 EFI system fat32 /boot/efi sda3 Microsoft reserved unknown ...

Re: [Solved] HP Notebook WiFi issues

I was running Linux Mint 18.3 64 bit and relying on WiFi from a mobile phone hot spot. Looks like I was a bit quick in determining I had no access to the internet. I used Firefox which didn't indicate it was looking for a server, hence my conclusion - no access to the internet. However, I later acce...

Thanks AZgl1500 for the feedback.
I've got it sorted by stepping back through kernel until I've found one that is compatible with my WiFi.

Re: HP Laptop Wifi not working correctly

For a permanent fix you need to remove the higher numbered kernel so that your now functional kernel is top of the list and will be selected auto when you boot. For starters in Terminal uname -a note the kernel number - write it down. Select Update Manager > View > Linux kernel > Note Caution > Cont...

Re: WiFi non functional -- Again

by AZgl1500 if you delete the last used connections, you should be able to click on the WiFi signals showing and asked for a password. as that is an Intel Wireless adapter, it should have the drivers in the kernel. Back from kernel 4.4.0-134 to 4.4.0-133. No change. No WiFi site showing up & 1: ace...
