As you don't seem to be using BTRFS, and there's a 31 second delay in dmesg between the btrfs driver being loaded and sda2 being mounted (probably where the drive is being scanned for non-existent btrfs file systems):-

Quote
[    4.187586] Btrfs loaded, crc32c=crc32c-intel
[   35.357394] EXT4-fs (sda2): mounted filesystem with ordered data mode. Opts: (null)

try uninstalling the unnecessary btrfs support:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove --purge btrfs-tools btrfs-progs
then rebuild the initramfs:
Code: [Select]
sudo update-initramfs -uk all
Then REBOOT to test.

If that still doesn't help. please post your dmesg output again.

1) Why is there only one linux-swap when I have 2 Linux operating systems? Does Kali use it, or just Mint?

They'll be happy sharing a swap partition, but there's nothing stopping you having separate swap partitions (or indeed a swap FILE for Mint) if you'd like.

2) What happens if I want to add to my ext4 partition for Mint? I don't see how I will be able to resize it since it's locked in between Bootloader and Windows.

Certainly it will be more difficult than if you'd manually positioned it at the end of the drive .. though not impossible, it'll just mean juggling/moving/resizing partitions around on the drive.

I do have to wonder though, what do you plan on doing where 240GB is not going to be enough for Mint ?

Okay looks like your /etc/fstab entry for the swap partition's UUID is wrong .. the UUID probably changed during the drive exchange.

We'll then also need to fix the entry in your /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume file to match.

Run:
Code: [Select]
sudo xed /etc/fstab
and make it read
Code: [Select]
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>

UUID=34e5f0cb-4239-472a-bec3-98646ca9e3ef / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
# UUID=77A3-530E /boot/efi vfat umask=0077 0 1
# UUID=65ad16d9-0930-431b-86d9-bf7d123e7082 none swap sw 0 0
UUID=77A3-530E /boot/efi vfat defaults 0 1
UUID=66ed2cb6-18e8-411b-8186-e9d28fe8a377 none swap sw 0 0
SAVE the file, and exit the text editor.

Back in the terminal run:
Code: [Select]
sudo xed /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume
and make it read
Code: [Select]
RESUME=UUID=66ed2cb6-18e8-411b-8186-e9d28fe8a377
SAVE the file, and exit the text editor.

Now REBOOT to test.

Now post the output from:
Code: [Select]
swapon -s
and
Code: [Select]
free -m
so we can see if swap got mounted properly.

In Mint, can you post the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -l
and
Code: [Select]
blkid
and
Code: [Select]
swapon -s
and
Code: [Select]
cat /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume
and the contents of
Code: [Select]
xed /etc/fstab

19
Which distro/version ?

Do you have a temporary wired connection ?

20
In answer to your title question .. erm, YES :)

You might want to read this
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gparted/+bug/1744372
and this
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gparted/+bug/1737248

Yes they're specifically about Ubuntu, but I'm going to bet the same 'Gparted won't work under wayland' applies to Debian too.

Maybe gnome-disks would be a better bet, unless you want to try a version of Gparted that does implement --enable-xhost-root

Couldn't you just switch out of a wayland session back to an X session .. then use Gparted .. then switch back ?

22
What happens if you run:
Code: [Select]
/usr/sbin/gparted
in a terminal ?

23
okay, open firefox

click Edit > Preferences

on the 'General' tab, scroll down to

Digital Rights Management (DRM) Content

and put a tick in the box labelled "Play DRM-controlled content"

Close Firefox

Re-open Firefox

go to:-
https://www.itv.com/hub/sanditon

and see if it works ?



If not, what's the output from:
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep "google-chrome\|firefox"

24
I went here
https://www.itv.com/hub/sanditon
and it worked for me in Firefox and Chrome.

So what exactly is it asking you for ?

Cool :)

What's the output from
Code: [Select]
du -hx --max-depth=1 /
run with elevated privileges ?

Also maybe try
Code: [Select]
du -hx --max-depth=1 /home

Yeah pretty much.

You may need to reboot with the monitor plugged in .. or set it as the primary monitor in the display settings .. but yeah.



That's one of those weird 16:10 resolution monitors rather than the more normal 16:9, personally I'd probably have gone for the Viewsonic (3" bigger, 1080p, and 16:9) but the Dell should work too.
