    Hibernation issue with LXLE 18.04.3 32-bit on Dell 700m

    Thanks guys. yx_wh wrote: "I installed Debian GNU/Linux 10 on my Inspiron 700m and found the same problem. I edited /etc/systemd/logind.conf , changed it to HandleLidSwitch=ignore and this time it's OK." Actually, ^^^that^^^ looks very interesting, because not only is it about *stopping*...

    GAH! "No such file or directory"

    Thanks @jglen490, I've been busy offline and unable to respond. Yes, this makes sense: giving the computer precise directions to avoid misplaced files and apps. And for all, thanks for the instructions.

    Hibernation issue with LXLE 18.04.3 32-bit on Dell 700m

    Cool! I will be busy this work-week, but when the smoke clears I'd like to try that. Next question though: how do I edit this? Remember, Windows users generally did not mess with their Registry. For my own part, I did so rarely, cautiously, and backed it up before I did so. Thanks in advance.

    GAH! "No such file or directory"

    Fantastic. Thank you. I had actually been doing something like that on other testbeds, and I wonder if, during the OS install that I did not set myself up with root privileges? Because this time around, when I attempted to click on, select, extract the zip package, there is a box at the...

    Hibernation issue with LXLE 18.04.3 32-bit on Dell 700m

    Hello Experienced Linux Users, For those unfamiliar with my current mission, I am reviving older hardware (mostly 32bit machines) with lightweight distros of Linux for donations to kids overseas (and I am told there is a local tech). This issue involves a Dell Inspiron 700m (1.6GHz Centrino...

    @Tolkem ,@q4OSteam Thanks so much for all the work you've put into this issue... Success! https://www.q4os.org/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=18163#p18163 After a brief flirtation with Puppy Linux, got some additional pointers and applied them. So this is written on the Vaio PCG-FRV26, 890mb RAM...

    New User - Locating and installing Device Drivers in Debian-based Q4OS

    @Tolkem Thanks for the tip on nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf. This version of Q4OS / 32 bit is using a TRINITY desktop and "nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf" cannot be found in the CLI , or, I should say that it opens a large blank space with a menu across the bottom. The first text...

    Linux Flossing - Purging Remnants of (imperfectly) Uninstalled Programs

    @sp331yi Interesting. Were you an IMINT / NPIC guy? @wizardfromoz Chris, thanks for the Terminal commands. Those are exactly what New to Linux types need.

    Linux Flossing - Purging Remnants of (imperfectly) Uninstalled Programs

    Hello Experienced Linux Users, Fairly new to Linux and I am learning the CLI, Synaptic and so forth. Currently running Q4OS under its XPQ4 / 32 bit version. Debian-based, German-coded, Q4OS is wonderfully light and easy to install. The baked-in image viewers (Krita and Okular), however...

    Okay, here is both the successful use of screencap and the results of calling up Terminal and plugging in the command: nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf If it's not legible, Terminal comes back with: [ Directory 'etc/modprobe.d' is not writeable ] Next step? Thanks!

    So THAT's what fiddling means. Okay. On a different machine at the moment. Will try your suggestions when I get back to the shop and report back. This is interesting.
