  RDP from iMac to Linux Mint 20 box
Posted by: bobbycheetah - 10-19-2021, 05:43 PM - Forum: Mint - No Replies

Hi

I have iMac in main office, and Linux server in another room.  I can use MS Remote Desktop on iMac to connect to the Linux box successfully. However, to do so requires that I am not already logged in locally on the Linux box.  Is there a way around this besides creating a separate acct on the Linux box.  I am the only person in my household and only need to use the 1 account.  Thank you!

  How can I restore GRUB?
Posted by: SpaceChuck - 10-12-2021, 10:38 AM - Forum: Mint - Replies (2)

I tried installing linux to a USB but I accidentaly installed GRUB to my PC disk. I can still boot to Linux Mint, but I need the USB to be plugged in to boot. Otherwise, it will boot into Grub Rescue because it can't find the disk. I tried using Grub Customizer (to remove the entry that requires the USB) but it gave me this error:

grub-mkconfig couldn't be executed successfully. error message:
 Generating grub configuration file ...
/usr/sbin/grub-probe: error: failed to get canonical path of '/boot/grub/fonts/UbuntuMono32.pf2'.
No path or device is specified.
Usage: grub-probe [OPTION...] [OPTION]... [PATH | DEVICE]
Try 'grub-probe --help' or 'grub-probe -usage' for more information.

Hi.  I've searched around but have not yet found anything helpful.  Thought I'd post here.   I have a desktop pc, not laptop.  The info I've found so far is for laptops, and mostly older versions of Mint.  Thank you in advance.

  Who decides what's in Multiverse/Universe?
Posted by: Jay52 - 09-30-2021, 05:44 AM - Forum: Ubuntu - Replies (1)

hello,,Just wondering how it is decided which packages are included in the community-supported universe and multiverse repositories. All my web searches have uncovered is how to enable the repositories, which I've known how to do since 8.04. Is there a good overview somewhere?thx

Hi.  While attempting to install AV Linux MX Edition (AVL-MXE),  there is an option to install GRUB - along with the other options, MBR, etc.   Since I am on a dedicated machine (not a VM),  and not going to dual boot with windows,  should i leave this unchecked?

Hi Guys, I was wondering with as many repositories to choice from , is it possible of overlap occurring ? Does anyone edit the Repositories so that duplication in packages is not a problem?

  Flexible enough
Posted by: Mark Finnan - 08-30-2021, 11:29 AM - Forum: GNU/Linux, Unix, BASH and More - Replies (2)

Hi All, Came across a video by Chris Titus on the flexibility of Linux Distros to "Plug 'n Play" optional components like desktop enviros, PPAs, window managers, etc. So I decided to investigate other Distros like Pop O/S, Arch and so on. I noticed that some Distros have a desktop baked in while Manjaro give you a choice of 3 to choice from out of a list of twenty. Have I got this right?
