    Solitaire Game PysolFC

    Hi @Granny Sue , I am running Mint 19.3 presently. I also have run into the same situation as you describe. The solution I had was to wait a little bit - 5 minutes was plenty - then go ahead and 'Restart' the cp. And there was the new program I had just installed. Perhaps this will be of some...

    Linux Distro advice please

    I love {always have} the British dry humor. It is very subtle and striking at the same time @captain-sensible I love {always have} the British dry humor. It is very subtle and striking at the same time. Could it be that I am half Brit on my mothers' side? LOL. The other half is from across the...

    Linux Distro advice please

    Hi @captain-sensible , I think the key word here is "Beginners". As a fairly recent convert to Linux - a couple years ago - I probably see things a little differently from your "advanced capability eyes". I have looked at Slackware a couple of times, but it is too advanced for this old Geezer...

    Linux Distro advice please

    Greetings @fastjet And a hearty welcome to this forum. I have a little experience on trying to decide what is the easiest transition Linux distro, coming from Windows 10. I've been experimenting with different distros on my experimental machine - 12 different distros so far. {Learning a bunch...

    Create bootable USB app?

    Hi there @Vrai I've been using the "USB Image Writer" for quite a while. First I format the stick with "USB Stick Formatter", which also is packaged with Linux Mint 19.3. I have never had any problem with either of these programs. :) I'm sure that once you try them, you will probably not go...

    Dual Monitors

    Hi All, I have this goofy idea that I would like to hook up another monitor that is not being used right now. I would like to see both of them on at the same time - with different screens. Is this possible? Thanks a bunch in advance. Old Geezer TC Here are the particulars on the machine: The...

    Gparted questions

    @wizardfromoz Hello from the winter wonder land! Here's a pic of the Grub order. I guess I don't understand how to make sdb 4 the extended partition - - yet. The distros I put on are Peppermint, LM 19.2 Mate Sylvia, LinuxLite 4.2 and Elementary. The present state of sdb. {I was able to...

    Gparted questions

    @wizardfromoz Oh Wise Wiz One, You take it right. I can still use the lappie even with all its' foibles. Here's a SS of the sda part. I did not mess with the sda. However, I did plug in the new 3 TB Seagate to the lappie and it was recognized right away. I then opened up the live gparted and...

    Gparted questions

    Hi @wizardfromoz Thanks for the info. Along with more info comes more questions - of course!!! You mentioned that I need to make dev/sdb 4 the extended partition. How do I do that? I deleted everything on dev/sdb and now here is what it looks like: What is my next step please? Your humbled...

    Seagate Expansion 3 TB External HD

    @Rob I do thank you for that info. I will follow your advice and see what I get. My main cp {that I am using right now} is an HP desktop running LM 19.2 Tina and it would not recognize the Seagate. Funny that it showed right up when I plugged it into the lappie that has 10 Linux distros on it...

    Seagate Expansion 3 TB External HD

    Hi @dos2unix I'm afraid you lost me in this: (definitely use gpt for 3 T). I need your help in understanding this. Seems like some simple stuff gives me the most trouble understanding. Like you, I have almost completely switched over to Linux on 2 desktops and 3 lappies. I also have an old...

    Seagate Expansion 3 TB External HD

    @arochester Thanks a bunch for the link. That answers lots of questions. As per usual, it also raises new ones - as I perused their site. I just have to s_l_o_w down and not skip around too much. But...I am a 'kid' in the Linux candy store, and flit from one type of candy to another. Old Geezer...

    Seagate Expansion 3 TB External HD

    Greetings all, I have a new Seagate Expansion Ext. HD I just bought. Now I see that it only comes with Windows support or Apple. Is there any way I can get this to work on Linux Mint 19.2? Or any distro of Linux? Thanks for any and all replies. Old Geezer TC
