If you have enough RAM memory (you can try cat /sys/meminfo to know how much yo have), then you can delete the swap partition, delete its references inside /etc/fstab, move /dev/sda2 to the right and finally expand /dev/sda1. You can also delete the whole content of /usr/share/doc

Turns out all I had to do was update to the latest kernel 4.2.x since it supported my wireless card.

Try adding yourself to the video and audio groups. In cinnamon, go to "users and groups" in the settings, select your user, click on groups, and add yourself to the audio and video groups. I'm not sure if you need to add yourself to any other groups for any other features to work right. Then log off and log in again to enact those changes. ...

That's an issue I had a lot with Linux Mint and Ubuntu, you should get the appropriate graphics driver, for amd it's fglrx (not updates) and for nvidia it's nvidia-current. Use apt-get install and the command line for installation. But before you do anything collect your graphic card's type and search for it. There may be another solution then.

According to top, it's been 2days, 1hr and 46min since the last change (I made change, rebooted and launched top command).

So it's solved. There were two things that I did. First i updated the system and then installed mate desktop. Now it works like a charm.

I agree with Bruce, first, the easiest - by no means the fastest way is to reinstall the NVidia drivers. Assuming you're running Mint sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia* Then whereis nvidia If any files still appear, delete them. Then reinstall the nvidia drivers To check for memory problems: Remove all but one stick, reboot and let the computer run. ...

I faced the same problem with ubuntu-7.10. On my VM, somehow permission of "/tmp" got changed. To fix the problem, I changed the permissions of "/tmp" to 777. After this I was able to log in as a regular user successfully. This might help assuming your issue is same as of mine.

Unfortunately, there's not much you can do, other than replace the hard disk or get an external disk. You can, of course, try to reduce the amount of disk space you're using, but most modern Linux distros will eat 20 gigs pretty quick. That means you either trim out everything you don't need, or possibly change distributions to one that's a bit more trim ...

You have probably figured out the answer for yourself by now. However, if anyone happens to google your question and end up here, the following steps fixed it for me: Navigate into your System Settings → Languages → Input Methods. If "IBus" is not available in the "Input Method" drop-down menu, click the "Add Support for IBus" button. Else, continue to ...

This sounds like your mint installation has kexec installed. kexec is a system call which tells the kernel to load another kernel image, and to jump to its entry point. That new kernel will then replace the old kernel, and initialize the hardware. In essence, it is a reboot, except that you don't get through the firmware (the "BIOS"), which makes the reboot ...

Not sure you are running KDE or not, but I have a similar issue and I'm quite sure it's related to KDE. This isn't a permanent fix but it will get you out of a pinch in the mean time. What works for me is you switch TTY by pressing alt+F2 and then back to your TTY where your X session is running. I used to recycle the gfx monitor trigger by simply ...

Whether it's in /usr/local/bin or /usr/bin is irrelevant. It's just a python script that posts either its arguments or its STDIN to a web service: #! /usr/bin/python import sys, os, stat, subprocess content = "" mode = os.fstat(0).st_mode if stat.S_ISFIFO(mode): content = sys.stdin.read() elif stat.S_ISREG(mode): content = sys.stdin.read() else: ...

yes it can! ;-) right-click on the MATE/Mint-menu and open the Preferences: go to the Applications-tab and uncheck Remember the last category or search (it should be the last item). normally (on LinuxMint MATE) this is unchecked by default...!

As Orient says in a comment, you first need to add the repository. But which repository? The answer turns out to be hidden in plain sight on the page you linked. Since 3.8 is the current version, it turns out you need to add the repository without a version number. I don't know what distribution your version of Linux Mint translates to, but for Ubuntu ...

The man page for dhclient has this to say about the -r flag -r Release the current lease and stop the running DHCP client as previously recorded in the PID file.

It's certainly possible to backup & restore the settings you have made, but how to do it depends on which settings you mean. Generally I'd divide the settings into two categories: User Settings These are the settings like the mentioned layout of my panels, they are specific to your user and should usually be stored in /home/<username>. If you ...

Installing Kali Linux packages on any other distribution that it was meant for is a recipe for disaster. The "Katoolin" tool authors do not seem to give out this warning together with their tool, which results in massive breakage of the Linux OS of anyone who tries it. Kali is Kali, Mint is Mint, and Ubuntu is Ubuntu. If you try to make a Frankenstein out of ...

I had the same problem on xubuntu 14.04 (64) and xmodmap (with exactly the same keys) and found a solution using xkb instead of xmodmap: Remapping Keys in Ubuntu (using xkb) The xkb solution requires only to change the keycodes in /usr/share/X11/symbols/pc and clear xkb cache by rm -rf /var/lib/xkb/* I had no delays afterwards. Maybe this works with ...

Do not write anything on the hard disk. and do not reformat With every write operation you make you're at risk of replacing existing data; making it unrecoverable. Do your data recovery attempts (use tools like the ones Stephen Kitt suggested) and hopefully recover as much data as possible. And then start out new. Do not forget to file a bug report to the ...

You could give TestDisk a shot, ideally on a copy of the disk (assuming you have another computer you can copy it to...). TestDisk can recover partitions, if the disk hasn't be rewritten, and failing that PhotoRec can be used to recover some types of data. Do read all the documentation before using either tool!

Unfortunately, somewhere on the way, you decided to encrypt your home directory, so basically, you need to restore from your most current system back-up. Sorry to be the harbinger of bad news

I've had a similar problem with a Ubuntu install and I noticed that when you lower the resolution in the display settings I didn't get that issue when I undocked. I ended up doing that every time before undocking. I wrote an alias to do it, then I would undock and the it would turn the resolution back again. So try turning down the resolution in the display ...

In LibreOffice "Print" dialog, select the printer, and click on "Properties...": This will open a new dialog, and the "Paper" tab there should have a "Duplex" combo-box which will allow you to select the appropriate option (depending on what your driver declares): (this particular printer doesn't support duplexing).

Desktop icons are handled by the file manager, which is Nemo in Cinnamon Edition Caja in MATE Edition Thunar in Xfce Edition With KDE there's a special case, as there are no icons directly on the desktop.

My first guess would be that for some reason the splash screen is hiding or blocking the passphrase prompt. You can check whether this is the case by switching off the splash screen. To do so, we must make changes to the configuration of the bootloader which in mint should be grub (GRand Unified Bootloader): Start a terminal (if you don't know how, one ...

Your version of Ubuntu is 12.10 which is no longer supported and the version 20 of Firefox you are trying to update to is also out of date. Firefox is currently at version 43.

Can you check if your system has secure boot enabled? For that you need to check from BIOS/UEFI settings. I assume that "secure boot" should not be enabled on your system and I think it is expected. If your system does not support secure boot then it is an issue with the "Installation Media". As far as the message is concerned, it is just a "warning" and ...
