Re: Acer all in one desktop

Is W10 the original OS or an update from 7 or 8?

Did the Grub boot selection screen show or not?

What response do you get to $ sudo update-grub when run in Terminal?

jtarin's suggestion might be on the money. I've just tried a ASUS K52F Series laptop with a fresh installed Linux Mint 17.3 Mate 64 bit on the WiFi source I had difficulty with - and it worked fine. Used Connect to Hidden WiFi Network with a left mouse click on the Ethernet/WiFi icon on the panel. U...

Admin Network Setting?

I'm running Linux Mint 17.2 Mate 64 bit. I note that the Help file for the above shows a Connection tab covering the WiFi, Wired & Modem connections.
My Network Settings doesn't have the Connections tab and hence its contents.
Is my installation missing something or is the Help file out of date? :?

[Solved] EncFC - Encryption - How to use it?

I'm running LM 17.2 Mate 64 bit and have discovered the EncFc encryption package, but I'm at a loss at how to use it.
I've installed encfc, generated the Private and encrypted folders but that's where I've stopped :o

Assistance with this would much appreciated. :)
