Run this command for the GPG error : sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 3EE67F3D0FF405B2 40976EAF437D05B5. Then for the Hash Sum mismatch try running these commands : sudo rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/* and sudo apt-get update

Without more info, all I can suggest is: Try installing another copy of the same OS release, updating it (apt-get update, upgrade, and dist-upgrade), and then copying the suspected relevant parts of it to the broken machine (after making backups of course). For example copy /etc/apt/ and /var/lib/apt/ and see if apt-get update will work then.

It seems that simply using the delay option in startup items does not work. I have do exactly as this post says and use: bash -c "sleep 30;xmodmap ~/Documents/looseScripts/Xmodmap" instead of a delay. However, this isn't very elegant, as I have no idea why this works. As such, I'm hoping to accept an answer that is a bit less hacked-together.

Short of upgrading your Mint installation, the easiest way to upgrade to Java 8 is as you found out to install Oracle's JDK. The correct way to do this though is to use java-package. Start by downloading the appropriate JDK from Oracle, then sudo apt-get install java-package make-jpkg jdk-8u92-linux-x64.tar.gz sudo dpkg -i oracle-java8-jdk_8u92_amd64.deb ...

-This That occurs is the change of terminals, with this you "jump" switch to another terminal can log in as another user ... or even as ('Super User') "root", to return to your active terminal use the "CTRL+ ALT + F9" combination.

This sort of problem crops up occasionally (not just nvidia) and sometimes has a solution: upgrading to the latest (presumably better) version. Some people switch to the nouveau "open source" driver (not necessarily better, but different — your mileage may vary).

Your screenshot shows the 93.60G Unallocated partition quite clearly so it is detecting it. Why this is not reflected in the upper portion of that installer window I can only speculate on. I would guess that is only a list of allocated partitions. Did you click on that partition in the screen you have pictured? Without downloading and checking the LM ...

Applies to: Linux Mint 17.3 Because of an apparent bug, if you're using a Broadcom based WiFi card (such as BCM4321) on this edition of Mint, you need an internet connection already established, either from cable all by using an Atheros based USB Wifi dongle. (E.g. TP-722). At least this is so, if you attempt to install from a USB memory stick, made from an ...

@GAD3R as you can see in my first image, the legacy is "on" and secure is "disable". In the images you can't see, but I changed the " usb" as first. Still not working. I can go further of Linux Mint Logo. I want to replace the entire system, not double boot Thanks.

What you need is to get your pc to boot from your target kernel. Since both kernels are available on your system they should be available at boot time via Grub (At least I think that's how mint deals with it - I'm using archlinux and it is a bit different :) ) So when you reboot you should have the option, select your preferred kernel (3.19) from your ...

This is more probably a hardware problem, or a compatibility problem between your hardware and the Linux kernel, than a distribution problem. I had a similar problem with an older computer running Ubuntu 12.04 and Ubuntu 14.04, it seems to be mostly gone in a newer computer running 15.10 (when it happens I shut the screen to put the computer to sleep again ...

This is what happened in a VM to me when removing regex python*: Since I can't figure out how to install all of it back in, it will be hard to put it together. I will not poke you further, you have learned lesson the hard way. Maybe is someone able to fix it, but I doubt it will be faster than a clean install. That is why I post this.

It is Alt + ` (just above Tab). As far as I know it works generally with Gnome. There are (probably) all the shortcuts in Cinnamon. Including yours: Alt + `: Cycle through open windows of the same application on ANY Workspace

Have the Tomcat processes replace /etc/issue with a non-warning version when they've finished (assuming you can include some of your own processing in those scripts). Or, have any script (/etc/rc.local?) run which replaces /etc/issue after everything has finished booting.

Ok, I feel dumb now. Jeremy31's comment got me thinking about my subsystem, and that led me back to this thread. I had already decided that this didn't help me as I didn't have this subsystem, but then it suddenly hit me that I could apply the same solution by changing the line to my subsystem number. Bingo! It worked. Thanks for helping me think this ...
