Cześć! Hello Mint community.

Post by czeekaj » Thu Jan 11, 2018 7:00 am

Hey everyone, I just getting into using linux. Being a long time windows user I am tired of the microsoft paddle. The software honestly mistreats the end user in windows 10. I was tired of endless removing, trimming, and disabling upon a fresh install of windows. Took a while just to get it set up remotlely how I'd feel okay using it and still was always giving me trouble. I'd use third party applications just so I had control of the System like Spy Shelter FireWall, Glasswire, and Ext.

Well my first distro ever was Raspian Jessie. I am using Refracta, a distro of Devuan on my laptop. Really nice system I like the Init on boot saying OK in green It feels really nice and I like the manual mounting of USB and the packaged software is great for what I need on my laptop for browsing and the like.
On my desktop I am dual booting linux mint now :)
It works good but I ran into an error on my first set up, aside from trial and error on partitioning.
I uninstalled the virtual keyboard. Upon restarting the system, everything died. Maybe it is to embedded or something, but it may of uninstalled essential portion of Gui. I didn't really mess with the systetm aside from that. Before resetting I couldn't even access certain menus and settings as if it didn't exist. Than when I reboot I just got an Error message and black screen so I had to reinstall again. Also able to shrink the boot partition a bit to make more room for the rest of the drive.

Hi, and welcome!

You may want to post about your issue in one of the main forums rather than in the Introduce yourself section.

Cheers.
