    Permissions

    So there is something going on with the way the file structure. I don't know what it is. If I try and change permissions from the properties page, it rejects it. Everything is labeled as read only. I'm not sure how to proceed. Could this be a Libreoffice problem?

    I must admit that I don't really know how to find the info on the file system. I am using several USB ports along with the computer Documents file to save libre office calc spread sheets that I update on a daily basis. Last week was the first signs of trouble. I started having problems copying...

    14, member: 122561"] It's possible that file is still open. Are there any applications open that might have one of the files open? If not, you may try and reboot then delete it just in case the kernel never released the file descriptor. Finally, it's showing binary in the error which...

    I'm having troubles tdeleting directories. When I try to delete a directory from either the CL or with the GUI, I get this error msg: rm: cannot remove 'Ancestry info': Is a directory. In all the tutorials I've seen, the rmdir cmd should delete the directory. Thanks, DAve

    Documents folder missing

    Condobloke, You asked about the file set up I have presently. Here it is. I used mkdir to create a new Documents folder. It's not showing up on the file system GUI that Linuxmint provides. If I could get that fixed, I'd be happy.

    Documents folder missing

    Condobloke, Here's my Timeshift page. I haven't done any set up. What's in the picture is default when I originally installed Linuxmint 19.3. I used the restore button for the 3/21 image. I thought it was working. I got a list of stuff that it flagged on the dry run but nothing happened...

    Condobloke, Yes I do have Timeshift. I guess I need to read the instructions. I tried using it and it didn't seem to work. I'm using Linuxmint 19.3.

    Documents folder missing

    Hi. I recently was using the move command to move a file from my Documents folder to a memory stick. When I was done, I saw that I had an icon (red or yellow triangle with an exclamation point in it), and an error msg saying to check the spelling and that the Documents folder didn't exist. I...

    Repository problems

    As a follow up, I've come to the conclusion that all the repository info on my computer was wiped out when I tried to add the repository for Wine 5.0. I still haven't found any documentation that shows me how to get it back. I've tried doing it from the software source and applying a repository...

    I was trying to get Winehq from the Wine website. I copied and pasted the command line input for the Wine Repository. Since then, when I try to open the Synaptic package manager or do anything from terminal, I get this error msg: E:Malformed entry 1 in list file...
