Thank you very much.
It still doesn't work even after reboot :(
Have you tried file-browser->some htm(l) file -> open with -> vivaldi + set as default?

Of check

Code: Select all

~/.config/mimeapps.list
for htm(l) aznd the associated program... it could be in two places in the file, so check for the 2nd one.

sda is the device name, sda1 is the partition
Indeed they are. And his pic shows bootloader going to the partition rather than the disk.

Re: Installation wipes whole drive

That said, if this is the second time already that you managed to get your system to not boot up again what makes you think it won't keep happening? Doesn't putting grub on sda1 (as in his picture), rather than sda, make it not-bootable unless there's another grub (or EasyBCD) from another OS insta...

Re: Installation wipes whole drive

This time the drive is partitioned the same way. Installation will not let me install just on sda1 again. You're in "Something else" mode, which is correct, so click sda1 and then check "Format" and then hit "Change" to set that as the "/" partition; and in the lower left of the GUI the "Device for...

Re: fcheck process started

I think this means you don't need fcheck and can safely remove it

Code: Select all

$ fcheck
The program 'fcheck' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:
sudo apt install fcheck
by doing

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get purge fcheck
Just keep an eye out for apt wanting to remove other stuff.

Re: When correct password is entered login screen goes black and then asks for password again

You don't need a live USB for that, the defaults are stored in /etc/skel/ , just copy them over if you need to reset yours. I'd heard that, looked at that file and I don't think it'll do the trick - might depend on how he broke his system: $ grep PATH /etc/skel/.* grep: /etc/skel/.: Is a directory ...

Re: Stuck in 'boxed' guest account

A far better solution is to NOT use resource-heavy Cinnamon (or KDE). Seems I blundered with a tip from EasyLinuxTipProject,com which I can't anymore (cla...

Re: When correct password is entered login screen goes black and then asks for password again

I'm still pretty new to linux so I'm not sure how to fix this. Lesson 1: don't mess with the PATH except to stick stuff at the end. Everybody does backups before they mess with important files and settings**, so boot the LiveDVD/USB and restore the files you messed with, probably ~/.profile and/or ...

Re: Want to delete second Mint 18.3 system

In multiple disk systems, I frequently end up wondering where GRUB resides. One easy way to determine is to disconnect SDC and see if the system will boot. If it does, then no part of GRUB resides on SDC and you can wipe it and use it for whatever you like. If the system does not boot, then at leas...

Even though I have that checked, Grsync doesn't run rsync with the privileges needed. I just tried that (to backup the OS, which I normally do as root), and it didn't work...for me it might be because the command line it showed was pkexec rsync ...bunch of parameters... and pkexec doesn't work**.
