Re: Stuck at terminal screen on boot

I know at exactly what part of the process the issue was caused. I ran this command: systemctl disable sddm ... I just need the default Linux Mint login screen back. Login on the console (tty1) and then try sudo apt-get install lightdm --reinstall If sddm is still around, the installer *should* ask...

Re: i want to resize my home

A reinstall might be quicker because the partitioning doesn't have to worry too much about saving any data on thdrive - unless you tell it to. As I mentioned in the other post, if he doesn't want the data, just delete it. IIRC, you can't resize the /home partition during the install unless you refo...

Agree. If you don't want the data, just delete it first then the resize will be fast.

Re: A lot of stuff (administrative) won't launch when I open them and enter password

If you can't fix the pkexec problem, just use sudo in terminal:

Code: Select all

sudo driver-manager
The sudo bug where root took ownership of some files under your $HOME has been fixed in Mint 20.x, perhaps also in 19.x

Re: search tool problem?

To add to Termy's answer, you can update the 'locate' database by:

Code: Select all

sudo updatedb
Personally I never use locate because regular 'find' commands are fast enough.

Re: Bit compare between two binary files

I much prefer to work with the files as they are: one on each of two thumb drives; rather than create new files to compare, which would really not be the same comparison, would it? It would be the same but not really easier. I think that the specifications I want would look something like this : di...

Re: Tubes, transistors, microchips - What do we hear - and do we like to hear what we hear?

I can see the attraction of analog and tubes; sometime back in the 1960's I bought a Roberts reel-to-reel which had tube preamps, and I'd stick those in my audio chain to give rock-n-roll a slightly edgier sound. And about 10 years ago we bought about 14,000 old vacuum tubes from the estate of a TV ...

Re: Toshiba 2 TB External Drive Issues

From what little I know, "input/outpu error" means a physical problem. I'd try gparted and see if you can run a diagnostic that doesn't change or fix anything, and go from there.
