I also had the same problem on Linux Mint 18 with Cinnamon. I installed the libtool-bin and started installation of hplip again. It asked for deinstalling the previous installation, what I confirmed. After successful installation and reboot I just setup my printer and anything was ok.

I solved it by re-installing Linux Mint making sure to boot the installation DVD in EFI mode and to choose the EFI partition in the drop-down menu during the installation. The first boot worked perfectly, but then windows made the Linux option disappear. But one problem at a time.

There are several places where you could have used a script besides ~/.bashrc or /etc/profile; without providing details on what changes you made, you will get only general advice. For instance, you might have modified or added a file in /etc/profile.d modified your ~/.profile or ~/.bash_profile run the terminal via a script (or desktop "launcher") You ...

The ath5k driver is not related to your hardware. Trying anything with it will not fix your problem, since it is a driver for atheros hardware, not Intel. It may be that there's a second hardware switch on your laptop. Look for a slider or something of the sort. If you can't find that, check your BIOS; I've seen cases where the 'hardware' rfkill switch was ...

So since you are getting desperate, here's a temporary/dirty solution... boot rescue media mount filesystems and chroot into it, eg. mkdir /mnt/root mount /dev/mapper/mint--vg-root /mnt/root mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/root/boot # example if you have separate boot for d in dev proc sys; do mount -o bind /$d /mnt/root/$d; done chroot /mnt/root /bin/bash then try ...

Unless you took steps to log the output somewhere beforehand (e.g. by logging the whole session with [script](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Script_(Unix)), or by redirecting the output to a file), the output of the command that's scrolled off the screen is gone¹. In the case of rsync, this isn't a problem. Rsync is usually idempotent (this is not always ...

I have had to fix it by turning on wifi before shutdown.

From your question it looks to me like you have "wake on LAN" or something similar set in the BIOS (or on the interface). That setting means that the net interface will still be listening on the net and when it receives a packet addressed to it, it wakes up the CPU. What you need to do is go through the BIOS settings and see if anything looks related to ...

From searching online, there seems to be many potential causes for this, including on the Mint Forums.

i can tell you the shrinking with windows caused your problems! at least since then your drive was converted to a "dynamic disk" (as you can see on your screenshot). a long story made short: dynamic disks are a "microsoft-invention" to overcome some limitations of msdos-mbr (and make interaction with other os more complicated)... the solution is to ...

I know it's over a year ago, but I just wanted to add to the answer by cipricus. You need to go to the tab "Appearance Conditions" (next to the "Basic" tab) and put a tick in the boxes for the file types you want. Then catfish works. And yes, it's fast! Regards

I've solved this issue by installing new linux kernel "4.5.2-040502-generic" following this guidelines: http://askubuntu.com/questions/761758/ubuntu-16-04-lts-cannot-suspend-fails-on-suspending https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1574125/comments/26 Install new kernel (4.5.2): cd /tmp wget \ kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.5.2-...

You need to change the ownership and/or group of the USB drive's mount-point (and all files/dirs in it, if any) so that your user can read and write to it. Alternatively (or additionally), you could change the permissions so that ANY USER can read or write to it. In short, open a terminal and run: sudo chown -R user:group /path/to/usb/mount and/or: ...

As you have formatted this drive with an ext4 filesystem which uses user and group ids for basic access control, you need to change the owner or group of the filesystem's root directory so that you can write to it. As creating a filesystem is normally done as user "root", your normal user most likely does not have those permissions.

Temporary increase tmpfs filesystem 1) Open /etc/fstab with vi or any text editor of your choice, 2) Locate the line of /dev/shm and use the tmpfs size option to specify your expected size, e.g. 512MB: tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults,size=512m 0 0 e.g. 2GB: tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults,size=2g 0 0 mount -o remount /dev/shm

First , you should make the unallocated space ntfs. After this boot up linux mint and install it in your ntfs 50gb partition. It will format it from ntfs to ext4

From their site, published June 30, 2016: It will also be possible to upgrade from Linux Mint 17.3. Upgrade instructions will be published next month. Link: Linux Mint 18 “Sarah” MATE released! Assuming they do it as they did before, it'll show up as an option in the Mint Update Manager.

In addition to the answers Karol S gave, note that the PPAPI flash found on ChromeBooks has DRM enabled. You can extract the libpepflashplayer.so.* files from a recovery image and substitute them for your existing ones. Why Google does this, I don't know. My personal solution is Karol S's third option (Pipelight in a NPAPI browser, specifically Seamonkey in ...

In Mint Mate 17.3, this still needs to be configured from a fresh install. It's easily doable by going to Menu -> Preferences -> Keyboard Shortcuts and adding a new Custom Shortcut to the preferred file manager. Doing this binds the shortcut to Mod4 + E. Unfortunately, if no other changes are made, this will not work when using the left Super key, ...

There do seem to be a few oddities with LM 18 at the moment although my install is running beautifully.

Now that the Ubuntu variants and Mint have moved to systemd I found my old solutions based on the above to be less satisfactory.

I would also suggest that you comment out any third party repositories that may have been added to the file /etc/apt/sources.list, or added in the directory /etc/apt/sources.list.d It is probably easier to turn off any third party repositories in the /etc/apt/sources.list.d directory using the software manager. Choose 'Edit' then 'Software Sources'. These ...

For the do-release-upgrade command to work, you need to have update-manager-core installed. sudo apt-get install update-manager-core However, you can still upgrade without installing that package.

Both Ubuntu (Trusty > Xenial) and Linux Mint (Rosa > Sarah) have just had a distribution update, this might have caused the dependence problems.

If you have very recently updated to Mint 18 I suggest posting this issue on ...

Try disabling hardware acceleration when starting the Chrome browser. From the command line, you can do this by adding --disable-gpu.

You can also search for files on your system with the 'locate' command. Before using the command (for the first time) you will have to populate the updatedb database that keeps track of where everything is on your machine (and is what the updatedb command queries). That must be done as a root user. So, first populate your updatedb database: sudo updatedb ...

Running the molecule program (for my OS it is in /usr/libexec/xscreensaver/molecule) with --help, and looking at man molecule don't provide any obvious way to change this appearance.

I was having the same problem with AMD Intel and Linux Mint 17.3. I updated my kernel to 4.x and now I am using xserver-xorg-video-ati (recommended, open source) with no such problems. fglrx was giving problems for me: I was not able to use hardware acceleration in chrome. So, updating kernel might be a solution worth trying

This is a general procedure for building with source on Debian-based distros, like Ubuntu and Mint.
