    Another W10 laptop goes TUX

    I have an older Acer laptop that had 7 on it and I should have installed LInux making it a dual boot, but I didn't. So I have Mint on both laptops and the one thing I enjoy the most is how fast everything opens, runs, and downloads on my HP now. I was ready to throw it against a wall when 10...

    Another W10 laptop goes TUX

    I just thought, you could have installed Mint alongside 10 so you'd have an OS if there's something Linux can't do that the other OS can. I planned on doing that but didn't after installing 10.

    Superuser privileges

    Mint 20. And I do have Timeshift installed. As I said in my earlier post, I ran the updates again and they installed with no problems. Oh well, as long as everything works, I ain't messing with it. LOL

    Another W10 laptop goes TUX

    Hey Mike, I installed Mint on a brand new 500GB SSD and took out my old hard drive with Win10 and haven't regretted it one bit. My 8 year old HP laptop boots up faster, opens programs faster and is all around faster than when the laptop was new with Windows 7. I planned on making a dual boot...

    Superuser privileges

    Ummm, never mind. I just ran the updates again, and they downloaded and installed with no problem. I don't know what I did but the updates installed. I'm still new to Linux and haven't really played around with it much to know the ins and outs of it without destroying everything I have set...

    Superuser privileges

    How do you get superuser privileges in Linux? I have updates that I can't download and install because I don't have superuser privileges. One download asks me to manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem. I type it into terminal and it says I don't have superuser privileges...

    I know what you mean about 10. I didn't like the GUI, it just looked so fake. How is Wine supposed to work? Does it convert a Windows program to work in Linux? I can't figure it out.

    Beats Audio

    Oh, OK. LOL I thought he didn't understand what I wrote. Hey, I'm all new to this and want to learn all I can about Linux. If I can do without a windows operating system, I'm fine with that!

    Beats Audio

    What do you mean, you don't understand it? Maybe I was a bit long-winded in my post. LOL I was wondering if there's a way to install the Beats Audio driver in Linux so I can have my sound the way it was on my laptop originally.

    Beats Audio

    My HP laptop had Beats Audio installed when I had Windows 7. When I installed 10, the audio was lost. I now have Linux on my new SSD and was wondering if I am able to download and install the Beats Audio file using Wine or another software into Linux. If not, no big deal, but I'm hoping I can...

    Benchmarking an SSD

    I just installed Linux 20 Ulyana. I was just curious as to how fast my new ssd really is compared to my old hard drive with Windows 10. After I installed that on my old drive, it ran slower than molasses at the North Pole. LOL I haven't really done anything in LInux yet but I'm getting to...

    How can I go about benchmarking my SSD that I just installed. Can you use terminal to run a benchmark test?

    Password

    Is there not a way to reset the password in the GUI instead of using the command line? I'm all new to Linux and don't want to screw anything up.

    Password

    How do I remove the password in Mint? I actually forgot my password and can't get in to anything that requires a password. I'm trying to reformat a flash drive and it's password protected. How do I remove the password? Help!!! LOL

    dual boot

    That's probably what I read is to have windows installed to have a dual boot computer. I'm getting frustrated with 10 on my HP and now I can't read my Secure Digital card for whatever reason. I'm also not able to read them with Linux. Is there something I have to install to read the SD cards?

    dual boot

    I'm not sure what I want to do at this point. I was thinking of purchasing an SSD and installing Linux on it and save my hard drive with Windows so I don't lose that. The only bad thing is I hate booting up that laptop since it takes forever to do anything, but would like to install Linux to...
