Ubuntu / Re: find backslash on keyboard??
« on: Yesterday at 11:00:30 pm »
Looks like you have a US (American English) keyboard/layout.

Do the key markings match the key as typed .. or are you accidentally using the en_US layout on an en_GB keyboard ?

You'll have to give the command issued and exact error.

BTW, updating python is dangerous and likely to screw up your system.

Thanks Mike, but it still would have been helpful if the OP included a link .. maybe it's some kinda critical/lateral thinking test :))

The key location on the keyboard can vary (specially on small laptops) .. but on the en_GB keyboard layout it's pretty much always

Shift+\



Dunno if that's different on say en_US layouts

Ubuntu / Re: Booting
« on: November 12, 2019, 01:46:59 am »
I'm lost .. you wiped the entire drive including the Windows partition then installed ONLY Mint .. so how do you expect to boot Windows (if it no longer exists) ?

[EDIT]

Currently you have 2 menu entries for Windows

One points to /dev/nvme0n1p1 .. which is actually the ESP (UEFI boot) partition .. NOT Windows

and the other points to /dev/sda1 .. which is yet another ESP (UEFI boot) partition .. NOT Windows

There is NO Windows partition .. so maybe you should just remove those UEFI entries.

No, you could only use mkdir in the parent folder if you had elevated privileges (sudo mkdir).

There's no way (that I know of) to allow writing of folders but not files .. you either have write permission or you don't.

Peppermint / Re: DVD Drive problem
« on: October 31, 2019, 04:31:49 pm »
So can it read the contents of the Peppermint DVD ? .. ie. can you open it in file manager and see the contents ?

And have you considered using a USB stick (LiveUSB) instead for the installation ?

Let it upgrade Virtualbox:-

a) it's a newer version (6.0.14)
and
b) it's the right version for your updated system (ie. bionic rather than xenial)

You haven't included contact details ?

Your link just provides information about the product, not how to get in touch about the job offer.
(which is a little troubling as it could be taken as purely SEO)
