    Install Linux beginner

    My (sympathetic) advice is to browse the forums, as probably many people before needed the same advice as you do.

    Post a screenshot of your Desktop

    I think I have nailed what I needed coming from macOS, replicating the bits I was missing (global menu and icon task list at the bottom). Neither need nor plan any further customisation in a big while. Details in my blog.

    Errors with VMWare Player and Virtualbox

    1) For the module to work after signing, as you did in post #5, there has to be a key enrolled in the UEFI. You do that with sudo mokutil --import MOK.der and a reboot. Check this post I dumped recently about the Secure Boot, section "Manually signing binaries". 2) I am not aware of manually...

    Errors with VMWare Player and Virtualbox

    I run Debian 10.4 and I don't have problems signing modules. I can't see why you would have such problems starting with a stable release of it. Three questions I have for you: Did you enroll the MOK.der key in the UEFI before trying to sign the module? Did you enable the testing or unstable...

    Check permission of a services

    You need to check several things in the case of services: What user the service runs under, and what groups that user belongs to, as that defines what permissions the service will have. Check this. Spoiler: use tools like top and some filtering. If you’re interested in things like “what...

    Just check that you don’t have any shell in the mounted directory, or any open file from that mount.

    my usb is screwed, can u help me out lol

    Check the ownership, more than the permissions, of the mount you are trying to open the ISO from. By the looks of it, you're trying to burn the ISO directly from a mounted directory (are you using a VM, and maybe mounting a shared folder?). If you mounted all using sudo, it will belong to the...

    Totally confused

    Also, if you use Linux Mint you will have to disable Secure Boot, as Mint doesn't support it (Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora do). Otherwise, you should be fine (provided the above options for the USB pendrive).

    Totally confused

    Make sure the USB has a GPT partition table, and then ensure the bootable partition has FAT32 format. Modern UEFIs with EFI (non-legacy) boot require that.

    Post a screenshot of your Desktop

    Just installed plasma after 15 years without touching KDE and played around with some basic out of the box themes. A lot of things to rediscover.

    Why is Wayland aping the APPLE interface? LINUX as an APPLE clone?

    Have you considered managing the screen with a gaming engine, instead with the libraries of a desktop metaphor implementation like the desktop managers are? I'm not joking, I think that a gaming engine will give the access you need to implement that in a feature-proof way. I don't want to play...

    Usb doesnt boot

    Mint works with UEFI, but not with secure boot. Flashing a ISO with target UEFI and GPT partition table should boot in a UEFI system, although you would have to disable Secure Boot for mint specifically. Although that wouldn’t interfere with the USB booting, just with the unsigned firmware...

    Installing Linux with Secure Boot and Friends

    Secure Boot is just one of the many features of the UEFI. You can still go on EFI mode, with the EFI partitions and all, and not use Secure Boot (for example, if you choose one of the distributions that still won't support it, like Mint).

    Installing Linux with Secure Boot and Friends

    This is an attempt of make sense about the Secure Boot, and has been published also in my blog. This post is motivated by the confusion and the still prevalent recommendation of disabling Secure Boot when installing GNU/Linux, no matter what distribution we are talking about. Contrary to the...

    I’m halfway the post I told I would write! (This https://www.linux.org/threads/linux-parallel-to-windows-10.29358/post-93773) But it’s quite a long form one that I want to publish in my blog as well, so it’s taking me a while.
