  Is USB connectewd hard drive NG?
Posted by: gbutkus - 10-28-2020, 06:36 PM - Forum: Mint - Replies (4)

I have installed  Mint 19.3 on three home computers rather easily only two issues, one was no wireless, other was no scanner driver but I managed to solve them.  Overall I am happy with 19.3 coming from windows.

I have a simple? question that I think the answer is bad external hard drive but maybe there is a fix.

19.3 File manager does not recognise one usb connected drive but not another.

Here is a terminal output lsusb

any thoughts?

How do I force a upgrade or ignore it so it doesn't show.

  [SOLVED] What does this PopUp mean - "Enter password to unlock keyring"
Posted by: Steve - 10-22-2020, 07:29 AM - Forum: Mint - Replies (2)

Greetings Friends,



Curious...has anyone got this popup screen before?  (FYI, got this on a VBox session of Mint 19.3.  Also, I haven't changed a thing with passwords, so I don't know why I'm getting this.)


-Please see attached photo-




I have seen this before.  Very very rarely and seemingly random.  I always Cancel or Close it.  Is some kind of malicious fishing attempt, or is this a real Linux thing that needs my attention




Thank you so much,




-Steve

  Undoing dual boot
Posted by: Doug Shaver - 10-21-2020, 03:51 AM - Forum: Mint - Replies (10)

So, about three years ago, after using Windows since the late 1990s, I switched to Linux Mint (18.something) after watching lots and lots of YouTube videos including many that Joe produced. No problems with the transition, and I've been totally happy with Linux ever since.

About a year ago, I decided to switch to MX Linux. It was OK for a while, but problems arose and I figured I should go back to Mint (this time, 19.3). For reasons (long story), I went with a dual boot setup. No problem there. So, I don't need MX taking up all that space on my hard drive, and I'd like to get rid of that partition.

I know I can use GParted to delete the MX partition, but I'm not sure what that will do to the boot loader. I've done lots of searching, but nearly all the results I'm getting assume that a dual-boot system is set up for a Windows OS and a Linux OS, not two Linux OSes. I did find one or two YouTube videos for deleting one of two Linux OSes, but they were not sufficiently intelligible for me to follow the instructions with any confidence.

Any suggestions? Here is my system info:

  Home folder icons suddenly appear on desktop
Posted by: Skipayear - 10-19-2020, 10:01 PM - Forum: Ubuntu - Replies (3)

When I booted Ubuntu 20.04 this morning, all the icons in my home folder (/home/skipayear/) were suddenly on my desktop and the desktop folder (/home/skipayear/Desktop) is missing. If I open the CLI and create a new folder in /home/skipayear, it instantly appears on my desktop. If I delete a file in /home/skipayear it instantly disappears from the desktop. If I delete a file icon on the desktop it instantly disappears in /home/skipayear/.

IOW it's as though my home folder has become my desktop. I have no idea why this happened. And It only affects this one user (me!) the desktops of other users are the same as they were before this happened.

It would be simple to create a new account for myself and kill the current one, but I'd really like to know what might have caused this.

Any ideas???

Am I the only one having trouble with this ISO? "Unzipping" it onto an otherwise working Active USB key will not "work". I've tried multiple USB Keys and downloads and there is definately something missing.

  How Best to manage other computers over internet?
Posted by: Steve - 10-05-2020, 10:31 PM - Forum: Linux Tips & Tricks - No Replies

Greetings Friends,

There is plenty of info "out there" on how to remote into other computers on your internal network.  But, what is the best, and safest, way to manage some else's Linux machine over the internet?  (and what I need is a graphical interface to "see" what they see...desktop sharing).

Can things like Remmina and Krdc handle this, or is it better to use such like TeamViewer?

What do you suggest?

Thank you,
Steve
