  Linux Mint install failed / computer wont boot Windows 7 or Linux from USB
Posted by: Trimar303 - 7 hours ago - Forum: Mint - Replies (1)

I tried to install Linux Mint from a USB but it failed. Now my laptop won't boot up at all.  Not Windows 7, not Linux from the USB.  Is there some way I can still install Linux Mint.  I am a total newbie!

  No VGA output on Gateway laptop with Dell 15" monitor
Posted by: Steve - Yesterday, 02:00 AM - Forum: Mint - No Replies

Greetings Friends,

Trying to connect a second monitor to my laptop.  It's a Dell 15" model E141fpb and my laptop is NV570P31u using the Intel HD graphics 4000.

My Mint 19 os detects the display perfectly.  The "Display" app show it just fine.  xrandr also shows it as it should.  All the VGA pins are fine.  Cable is in good shape.  The display's self Test is good.

Pressing my "switch display" fn key does nothing.  What would I be missing?  Any drivers needed?

Thank you,
-Steve

  Need help with script to check active IPs
Posted by: eliasw4u - 04-03-2020, 06:27 PM - Forum: GNU/Linux, Unix, BASH and More - Replies (2)

OK so I have been using a script I put together a while back to check who is actively connected to my WiFi router.
Very useful if you have kids that chat online in the middle of the night.
And just to see how many are connected. A first step in defending your WiFi is to know who is connected.

until yesterday i was using this

Code:
#!/usr/bin/env bash
#
# START OF SCRIPT
#
#
clear;clear

IP1="192.168.1."
ROUTER="254"
UBU1="80"     # UBU1
KAL1="100"     # KALI HP LAPTOP
TABLET="103"   # TABLET
MOTO_1="101"   # MY PHONE

# colors
  c1="\e[31m" # Red
  c2="\e[32m" # Light Green
  c3="\e[33m" # Yellow
  c4="\e[34m"  # Calm Blue
  c5="\e[35m" # Violet
  c6="\e[36m" # Arch Blue
  c7="\e[37m" # White
  c8="\e[38m" # Sky Blue
  c9="\e[39m" # Light Grey
  c10="\e[30m" # Dark Grey
  c0="\e[0m" # Normal

mip_1="$(ip addr show dev $(ip route ls|awk '/default/ {print $5}')|grep -Po 'inet \K(\d{1,3}\.?){4}' )"

echo -e ${c2}"$mip_1 Is Your IP "${c0}
echo ""

  check_for_life()
  {
    ping -c 1 -w 2 $1 > /dev/null
    [ $? == 0 ]  && echo $i
  }
  for i in 192.168.1.{1..254}
  do
check_for_life $i &

known_ips(){
# Wifi Router
if [ "$i" = "${IP1}${ROUTER}" ]
  then echo -e "${IP1}${ROUTER} ${c2} <----- WiFi Router ${c0}"
fi
# Toshiba laptop
if [ "$IP1$UBU1" == "$i" ]
  then echo -e "${IP1}${UBU1} ${c6} <------ UBU1 ${c0}"
fi
# KUBU Kali
if [ "$IP1$KAL1" == "$i" ]
  then echo -e "$IP1$KAL1 ${c4} <----- KALI ${c0}"
fi
#
# old TABLET
if [ "$IP1$TABLET" == "$i" ]
  then echo -e "$IP1$TABLET ${c3} <----- TABLET ${c0}"
fi
#
# moto, my phone
if [ "${IP1}${MOTO_1}" == "$i" ]
  then echo -e "${IP1}${MOTO_1} ${c7} <----- MY_MOTO ${c0}"
fi
#
}

known_ips

   done | sort
  
 
And it worked fine, so I thought. but yesterday I had both my laptops side by side and ran this script in my UBU1. it said my kali wasn't connected but it was, And it was right next to it. I was looking right at it.

So I decided to do a total rework on the script. it now looks like this
Code:
#!/usr/bin/env bash
#
# START OF SCRIPT
clear;clear

IP1="192.168.1."
ROUTER="254"
UBU1="80"     # UBU home 80
KAL1="100"     # KALI HP LAPTOP
TABLET="103"   # MY TABLET
MOTO_1="101"   # MY PHONE

# colors
  c2="\e[32m" # Light Green
  c3="\e[33m" # Yellow
  c4="\e[34m"  # Calm Blue
  c6="\e[36m" # Arch Blue
  c7="\e[37m" # White
  c0="\e[0m" # Normal

mip_1="$(ip addr show dev $(ip route ls|awk '/default/ {print $5}')|grep -Po 'inet \K(\d{1,3}\.?){4}' )"

echo -e ${c2}"$mip_1 Is Your IP "${c0}
echo ""

who_is_here(){
nmap -n -sn 192.168.1.0/24 -oG - | awk '/Up$/{print $2}'
echo -e "${IP1}${ROUTER} ${c2} <----- WiFi Router ${c0}"
echo -e "${IP1}${UBU1} ${c6} <------ UBU1 ${c0}"

echo -e "$IP1$KAL1 ${c4} <----- KALI ${c0}"
echo -e "$IP1$TABLET ${c3} <----- TABLET ${c0}"
echo -e "${IP1}${MOTO_1} ${c7} <----- MY_MOTO ${c0}"
}

who_is_here | sort -nr
echo ""


with an output like this
[Image: Screenshot-from-2020-04-03-17-25-32.png]

What I have in mind to do is show UBU1,TABLET, MY MOTO, or KALI and their IP address, but only if they are present.
This is where I need help. Currently if one of the four are active it shows the number twice like UBU1 at the top.
and if it is not active it still shows it once. (because I just use echo)
I want the arrows with the color and identifiers, but only if they are active. And only once.
I tried this in the first script, but it didn't work. so I figured ,why not just keep it simple.

But it would be much less confusing if they only appeared when active. Any ideas?

what aggravates me is that back in 2002 I had a script that did that, but I lost it and have forgotten the code.
so any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance.

kudos

____________________________________________________________________________________
P.S.
      Not that it would matter much, but none of the IP addresses in the image are actual addresses. GIMP is a great tool.
      I actually spent about 2 hours making sure of that, and that the fake addresses were in the example script as well.
      although that is exactly how it would look.

again,

kudos

  Still using Mint 18
Posted by: 369analog - 04-03-2020, 03:24 PM - Forum: Mint - Replies (1)

I am really struggling to learn Linux. It is over a year now. For learning purposes does it really matter what version of Mint I use? 18 still updates so I assume its not a big deal.

  Gaming On Debian/Ubuntu Distros
Posted by: AceOfSpadez54 - 04-03-2020, 02:57 AM - Forum: Gaming On Linux - No Replies

Hello there, fellow Linux user. 
Are you running Ubuntu/Debian/Linux Mint/[insert Debian/Ubuntu base distro here]?
If so, are you sick and tired of not having the latest and greatest kernel that supports your fancy new latest and greatest CPU/GPU?
Well then look no further friend, I have the solution for you!
For a step by step video, check out Intelligent Gaming - Linux Tutorials & Gameplay on YouTube
Very small YouTube channel that covers various Linux things, highly recommend you subscribe to him. Not better than the Supreme Leader of EzeeLinux Joe Collins of course but I digress. 
Simply open the terminal(Ctrl+Alt+T by default on Ubuntu and Mint) and type the following:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cappelikan/ppa
Update your system with:
sudo apt-get update
Then install Mainline with:
sudo apt-get install mainline
This nice piece of software is very similar to that of Ukuu(Ubuntu Kernel Update Utility). Difference being, Mainline is free and works on the latest and greatest Debian based distros, Ukuu does not. 
After doing so, run it and download the latest stable kernel(5.6 as of today) and the latest LTS kernel(5.4 as of today) for backup. It's as easy as clicking on the kernel you want to download and hitting install. It will tell you when the installation is finished, and to reboot to use the kernel. 
Do what it says and reboot, you will automatically boot into the newest kernel. Run the Mainline program again and remove the old 5.3 kernel if you wish. I recommend double checking everything works properly before doing so as on my older Intel Celeron laptop I had problems with WiFi on kernel 5.6 so I have to use 5.4.

Wink SSH via Internet
Posted by: rjs1943 - 04-03-2020, 12:42 AM - Forum: Mint - Replies (1)

I can connect to my ssh server via my local wifi in my house.  Now say I go to town away from my home, can I still connect to my ssh server from there thru the internet, and is entering the login info different than connecting at my home?  I probably will connect from my Android phone using Andftp app.  In other words, can I still connect using the same login info I use when I'm home, or do I have to login different when I'm away from home?

Thanks. Smile

  Aurutils - a fine AUR helper for you Arch folks!
Posted by: TarsolyGer - 03-30-2020, 10:38 AM - Forum: Linux Tips & Tricks - Replies (1)

Hey there, Ezee community!

We all know how tempting the AUR is for even the common folk, and even more for those who like to use some niche software or prefer to build the latest version from source! I have been doing the manual build process for a while, but I decided to look whether I can find an AUR helper to mange the AUR packages without twisting the control out from my hand, and blurring the line between AUR and official repositories as many such helpers do.

My choice has been the aurutils, so much so that I even decided to make an installation guide for it:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44X2yOwZCH0

What are your experiences with the AUR? What helpers have you been using?

  Chromium Web Browser
Posted by: frank124c@gmail.com - 03-29-2020, 02:48 PM - Forum: EzeeLinux Community Commons - No Replies

When using Chromium I go to gmail and instead of my account opening up so that I can read  my mail, I get a box that opens that says waiting and I can never seem to get into my account. Yet when I try to get into my gmail account with Chrome I have no problem whatever. This has only started happening recently. I have found that Chromium runs a little faster than Chrome and so I prefer to use it, but recently I have been forced to use Chrome. My  os is Peppermint 10 that I have running on an old Dell Laptop that I have fixed by increasing the memory from 2 to 4 and I deleted Windows and put in Peppermint. Has anyone else had a similar problem with Chromium or is it just me?
