In windows 8 create a desktop shortcut to: %SystemRoot%\System32\shutdown.exe -s -f -t 5 -c "System fully shutting down - Bye-bye!" And use that to shut down windows. Full system shutdown with no hibernation, you can mount the ntfs partion with no troubles now. Protip: pin a copy of the shortcut to the startbar, add another with shutdown -a if you want an ...

This answer assumes that you can connect your machine to the network using a cable and so get internet access. If that assumption is wrong, let me know and I'll modify this. You need to install the driver for your wireless card. The driver support table of the Linux Wireless page lists it as supported so you should be able to get everything working by ...

This has happened to me before. I was trying to install Linux on my Acer x64 bit laptop and I ran into those same issues. I didn't want to install, Ubuntu for Netbooks or install the Tablet version, wanted the actual Linux on my system. I honestly think installing regular Ubuntu or Fedora is too robust for tablet hardware and it isn't tested well on those ...

I was encountering a similar issue with a variety of apps that I use, mainly, Pidgin, Shutter, and ClipIt. The issue would typically arise when I had to restart Cinnamon due to it hanging or consuming too much memory. I would typically do this to restart Cinnamon. $ pkill -HUP -l "cinnamon --replace" I found a solution that seems to work, with respect to ...

Check the permissions on your private key file: debug1: Trying private key: /home/m1ckrz/.ssh/id_rsa If it's anything other than 600 (rw-------) then SSH will typically forgo using it since it could've been compromised. For example $ ls -l ~/.ssh/ | grep "[ ]id_rsa" -rw-------. 1 saml saml 1766 Aug 5 21:43 id_rsa -rw-r--r--. 1 saml saml 406 Aug 5 ...

You are already using the "verbose" option -v of ssh. It also has a "very verbose" option -vv. Oh, and "very very verbose", -vvv, which may actually be too verbose! So, I hopefully you see what's the problem when you run ssh -vv -p 22 -i /home/m1ckrz/.ssh/id_rsa m1ckrz@10.11.1.22 2>&1 | less If not, try with -vvv, which gives you about 300 ...

first of all, you don't mount a "hard disk". You mount a file system, that file system may be located on a hard drive, or anything else, like a file, a network, or anything else, really. That file system is prone to being broken when meta data are corrupt. That's possibly what happened with your file system. Your hard drive might also be physically damaged. ...

Most systems support booting different installations from different partitions. I have found multiboot with multiple Linux installations to work best, if each install has its own copy of GRUB. Loading GRUB from within GRUB is quite simple if you are using a recent version of GRUB. This /etc/grub.d/40_custom file allows me to multiboot between different ...

Just install normally. You can boot from your USB and follow the steps of the installer. You can either create a partition manually before installing or use the tools provided by the Mint installer to partition during the installation process. The only thing you really have to worry about is when the installer asks you whether to install a boot loader ...

Verify that you have something similar to the following in /etc/network/interfaces auto eth0 iface eth0 inet dhcp eth0 could also be referred to as p5p1 or similar according to the modern naming convention.

You seem to have two interfaces with IPs from the same network. Even though they have different metric I would try disabling one interface and checking with the other. So I would ifconfig eth1 down, check routes again, if they are ok try to ping first your router 192.168.0.1 if it works try to ping 8.8.8.8. If you can ping the router but not the outside IP ...

For what it's worth: I had the same problem, running Mint 17 with Cinnamon. Dropbox would be running and syncing fine, but no icon.

Apparently one of ...

I had the same problem and it crashed but now I got it working because I reattached a different ID. I have 2 physical USB receivers, one for a mouse+keyboard combination and the other for a separate mouse. Maybe you reattached the wrong USB receiver's ID, trying to turn a keyboard into a mouse? I got it working now.

If the Ubuntu installation is still present (and only GRUB was lost), sure, you can use any distro that has live booting to do so. chroot into the Ubuntu installation and install and update Grub. If /dev/sda5 is the Ubuntu partition: mount /dev/sda5 /mnt mount -o bind /dev /mnt/dev mount -t proc none /mnt/proc mount -t sysfs none /mnt/sys mount -t devpts ...

You need to make sure that "/mount/point/I/want" and all the files and subdirectories have world readable permissions.

Well I found this (for another resource). It tells you how to access the bios on the device. It uses unetbootin to create a bootable usb device. Just change the distro from Ubuntu to Mint.
