Mounting a Paritition wehn the Parition is encypted.

Post by PowerEngineer » Tue Sep 03, 2019 6:17 pm

Hello all,
I want to know how to mount a Live USB, so I can reinstall network-manager via the Live USB. I accidentally uninstalled the network manager from my computer, then I shut it down. When I turned it back on I would login and get the: " unable to launch "cinnamon-session-cinnamon" X session --- "cinnamon-session-cinnamon" not found". I tried doing the
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nemo
sudo apt-get install cinnamon
,but the packages failed since I do not have network manager. I can get linux mint to boot via a live USB, but I am not sure how to mount that to sys6 partition since my partition require a password and is encrypted. I just want to mount the partiton, so I can download and install the packages above. Also, if I could unencrypt and view my files before doing this operation that would be great as well.
Thank you for all the help.
