    Ext HDD keeps renaming an atrribute in Raspbian

    About mounting as root issue: You need to manually fix it in /etc/fstab. First create a mount point. This will do: mkdir -p /media/<recommended parent with agnostic name like "externals">/<my partition name> chown Karl:pi <mount point created above> * If your software expects a certain...

    Keyboard issues with asus rog

    Yes, plain text tty. Sorry for my bad typing in the previous post, "no active" was meant to read "no X session active". So if you Ctr+Alt+F(number), it's probably fine -- I'd still kill my Xsession & DM though -- for testing. Another thing that occurred to me is maybe if this is only happening...

    Strange problem with VLC 3.0.12 on Kubuntu 21.04

    Just adding my two cents: I'd bet it's a VLC bug, trust me. VLC is a terrible player which has filesystem problems (it's resource-heavy and clunky, too. The FIFO is/was broke years back and after 2 threads with th devs, spanning about a month, I got nowhere and nothing but the "it must be your...

    Keyboard issues with asus rog

    Unfortunately, using it in a VM is no good because the keystrokes are sent to the VM through software. The Windows kernel + drivers are handling the raw input. That is then sent to the VM (which can emulate whatever hardware from there). Two other questions: 1. Can you try boot most recent...

    storage extranl failure at start up

    Well, if you want to manually ensure they are always in the same place: * Always backup data first * Assuming your user ID is 1000 (default) * Assuming typical Debian/Ubuntu filesystem * Assuming all of your filesystems are ext4 ...If not adjust accordingly. * I may use "disk" and "partition"...

    Can't install any linux distro on Lenovo Ideapad 515ITL05

    At least the controller is visible. Have you at all successfully installed and booted any OS on the NVMe? If not, check that your motherboard and firmware version supports NVMe boot. If you've successfully installed an OS on the NVMe, ensure that it has the "boot flag" set on (gparted shows if...

    Required files to he present in /lib/firmware/amdgpu

    No prob. It may still boot faster from a USB, using your HDD as persistence (setting that up may be more trouble than it's worth, depending on how fast it boots live) ;)

    Keyboard issues with asus rog

    You'll have to either use the generic/default, or try similar models. Example, the keyboards of the Inspiron 3000 series will probably work with the "Dell 6000 series" layout. My first fix was to use xmodmap to remap the keyboard's power button which the X11 input driver refers to symbolically...

    Keyboard issues with asus rog

    So, good news: Your "d" key works fine. This means you don't have to worry about reconfiguring your keyboard/layout entirely. As for the below output, looks like your system's default is Wayland (this explains nVidia bugs in your linked post). IDK much about Wayland, I've never had a system...

    Can't install any linux distro on Lenovo Ideapad 515ITL05

    "Is your boot partition marked as such?" is the obvious question if the BIOS can't "see" it as a boot device, but if it cant see it period, it's likely trashed (only certain BIOSes can list devices, though). If your OS can't pick it up, could be drivers (Fedora and rolling releases can break...

    storage extranl failure at start up

    Not 100% sure what you mean, but some pointers: If you want the disks to stay in the same place, label the partitions (use gparted or something easy). Then use LABEL=<the name you gave it> instead of the UUID in your /etc/fstab file. Never use /dev/sdX because it can be enumerated differently...

    Required files to he present in /lib/firmware/amdgpu

    The files you mentioned in the OP are graphics firmware and can be removed (you should only remove them by removing their corresponding packages with apt/Synaptic because the system needs auto-configuration afterwards and to update initfamfs because of firmware changes) in favour of a...

    Keyboard issues with asus rog

    Your problem is hopefully something simple (notebook firmware, kernel problem, Xinput driver compatibility issue, whatever) causing those keys to be "perceived" as "soft" power off key signals (XF86PowerOff) or "hard" power off signals (virtual POWR key). Try these fixes: Based of...

    Perfect Text Editor Required [Solved]

    I've met a ton of people who do this. I think Vim is the most go-to editor of all. Sadly, it doesn't quite fit my aesthetics/workflow and I really don't like the extra learning curve. That's actually why I like nano over vi. The modal feature is actually something I find difficult because I have...

    Thanks for the further welcomes my fellow geeks, nerds, and social misfits... Oh, wait, it's 2021, we are now the cool kids coz we make all the stuff that lets them prat about on Facebook, etc. And in the last 10 years, gaming's become more mainstream that "everyone's doing it" (read any...

    Perfect Text Editor Required [Solved]

    It'd be easier to create a launcher script and set that as the default for opening text files and cut the extension write if-statements for each extension I use *sigh* That sounds like a good sig, lol. I tried Gedit back in the day. Sadly found it somewhat unwieldy/cumbersome. I like this one...

    My microphone is not working

    As @KGIII said, open Pulse's mixer as the first thing (and hope it's as simple as that). Go to the "Input" tab (not "Recording") and check if your device is listed. If it is, make sure it is selected as the default/fallback one. Also, try turning the volume to max and snapping your fingers near...

    Perfect Text Editor Required [Solved]

    The only DE, of course: XFCE ;) Yup, but I cannot find any keys for the window behaviour. Maybe I'll have to read the entire config file manually, instead of Ctrl+F *sigh* That's what I want. By default, if you open a new document, Kate does not spawn a new instance. Instead, it opens it in a...

    Debian 10 Gnome and Firefox 88 SOLVED

    I know this is marked [Solved], but for future visitors: One: If you need to manage preferences: 1. Go to ~/.mozilla/firefox/ 2. Know your profile. It's normally the default one listed in profiles.ini "Name=" or "Default=" 3. Open the corresponding dir with the profile name. Your pwd should...
