Re: Installing on external HD

Also, I would like to split this drive in half, part linux partitions and part NTFS for getting files off my Windows box. Should I partition it first in Windows or In Linux? You can do that. It's straightforward to install linux to an external USB device. As for the partitioning, it doesn't matter....

@deepakdeshp is correct, if a little unclear.

You cannot use TimeShift to backup your entire system. To do that you need to use a disk imaging tool. Many people here recommend Clonezilla Live.

I hope the report that the Samsung SSD drive is a complete disaster with Linux Mint is not true (anymore ?). It's absolutely false and always has been.

Re: Funniest Linux error message

I like the kernel's various dazed and confused messages. Best generic error/exception handler ever. Also a classic: ERROR: Root device mounted successfully, but /sbin/init does not exist. Bailing out, you are on your own now. Good luck. While looking up the dazed and confused messages I found this:...

Re: Screen flicker and tearing

How would 18.3 (xenial) go with that, using a cosmic repo to get Ubuntu kernels? He was on bionic. But kernels are self-contained, you can use them with any release, theoretically (any incompatibilities would from stem from the kernel, not the packaging). I would however suggest to also upgrade the...

Post back if you continue to get low speed. Your wifi has probably been put into low power mode.

Seems this problem needs coding assistance from the Mint team developers in coordination with the PIA folks.
If they provide .ovpn files then download those an import them. You don't need their dedicated VPN client.
