How so I improve the touch on Linux mint?:

Windows is so much better I can’t even right click by holding the screen in mint.. Doesn’t seem very touch optimised 🙁

Adding additional drives to /home with out needing root access to change drives files:

Honestly I am at a loss as how to create additional space like windows so I can move my doc, pic, and download folders and games to three other drives without needing to be in root to do it.

Help with Wi-Fi: No Option to Even Connect

Help with Wi-Fi: No Option to Even Connect:

Hello all! I recently decided to take the plunge and try Linux for the first time. So I installed Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon to a USB and tried booting from there. Everything worked, and it was wonderful… until I tried to connect to the internet. There was only an option for wired internet, and not even a section for wireless. After some Googling, I determined my wireless card type (the terminal spat out [10ec d723]) but I have no idea what to do from here? Some posts mentioned installing drivers, but I have no idea how to go about that. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

boot failure_external hdd_Mac mini 20

Hi all,

I have been getting major help from you guys so far :

This time, I am struggling with booting into linux mint on my external HDD on Mac Mini 2012.

It was working fine until soime time ago, when after the logo coming on, it dropped to shell or the GRUB bootloader failed. I have initially installed rEFInd but it stopped booting as boot manager after an update (I think).

Please see attached photo.

Please advise as it is becoming a looong process to keep rebooting only to be successfully able to boot into Mint on like the 8th attempt.

Thank you so much in advance!

all of a sudden, i can’t play games on openmsx by starting catapult. i load a cartridge that always used to work before and i get the following error.

Failed to initialize default machine: Error in “C-BIOS_MSX2+” machine: Couldn’t find ROM file for “C-BIOS Main ROM” cbios_main_msx2+.rom (sha1: 1755a38a29c7df6c7360e9e97ba1730f66e203a7).

ALSO: i tried downloading the systemroms zip file from: http://www.msxarchive.nl/pub/msx/emulator/openMSX/

but you never used to need them to run CBIOS. i am using linux mint 18.1 and 18.2

thanks.

Easily change BSSID?

Easily change BSSID?:

I’m kinda sorta new to Mint (18 Cinnamon) and I was wondering if there’s an easier way of doing this…

I have a router chained off of another router acting as a WAP, with the same SSID. Android handles this smoothly, and anything that doesn’t I just toggle the WiFi on/off and it will always reconnect to the stronger signal.

Mint seems to get attached to the last Router/WAP it connected to. If I want to get the stronger signal, I have to click: Network Applett->Network Settings->SSID’s settings->Identity Menu->Change BSSID in the dropdown->Apply->Close Settings GUI.

That’s pretty convoluted. Any other way to handle this? I would prefer not to take the scripted approach to save precious space on the Panel but after a lot of searching that’s all I’m seeing.

If all I had in the house was Mint I would just have 2 different SSID names for each router and just change connections but that would make it not seamless for any other device.
