    Finally, the page is downloaded so that I can post! I do hope to learn how to navigate and optimize the use of Linux. I'm studying the Youtube tutorials and the man pages in terminal. It seems the dial-up is working. Seems glitchy. Thunderbird was getting mail, then a setting was changed...

    Thanks everyone for the assistance. I'm still looking for an email client. I can't get pegasus to work even with wine so far. Because dial-up is so slow, I need a client that allows me to view the email's size to decide to dowload or hold till I get to hispeed. Pegasus did this. I'll look...

    Glitch with dial-up on Mint Mate 19 Tara

    Thanks Arochester...I noticed that when I had Windows on the Fujitsu. I was in the habit of plugging it in first, yet I'll check that element. Thanks for the terminology input. I'll get off this machine and check the Linux Fujitsu shortly. Thanks again, and any leads are appreciated.

    Recommendations for a Linux Clean Install on old Fujitsu AH532 laptop.

    Ok Everyone, It seems Wine came up on reboot, as did the ability to find my modem, so now I have my astrology program on Linux and am able to connect to dial-up. This is great, except the connection is extraordinarily slow. I did have an update notice which may make a difference when I get...

    Thanks a bunch condobloke. That helps immensely . I'll try it. I didn't hit the post button yesterday. So Wine was present after I shut down and rebooted. Had charts to do today so I haven't tried to get the modem to work yet. May play this evening yet it is 9p already. Wine is probably...

    Yippie!!! Thanks Wiley One for the info. We have properly functioning [so far] Linux Mate 19 Tara on the Fujitsu with a new HD and 8GB Ram. I still can't get a usb with persistence made properly. I don't understand my issue on that, since this HP is new. It seems I had to take the...

    Hello Vrai, good to hear from you. How's the weather now up there? We went directly into summer, 70 in the shade and humid. Thank you for the clear and detailed guidance. Yes, as long as I can boot from the usb or dvd I should be set. Wasn't an issue before things got 'hung up'. I'm...

    Hello Everyone! I'm doing a slight shift and seeking guidance. I remembered I had bought a new Hard Drive in my attempt to revive the Fujitsu. It didn't make a difference in the Hung Bootloader. Had to take the CMOS battery out to get it to load. There may be some other issue with the...

    Hung Boot Loader

    Thanks Condobloke, it must be a glitch in the fujitsu BIOS. Been having issues. Remembered yesterday I bought a new HD thinking that would fix the hung bootloader. It did not. Had to change CMOS battery to get BIOS to load. So I'll try the new HD. To succeed at getting say Mint Tara on a...

    I used etcher to put the iso on the usb. Yet The new OS didn't come up. Do I have to do something special or download an iso specifically labled 'Live'? How do you make the iso image 'Live'? I thought etcher just made 'live' usbs. If it does, then my Fujitsu with Linux 19.3 Mate on it is...
