General Help & Advice / Help needed with dual booting
« Last Post by donwatson on Yesterday at 09:17:46 pm »
I really need to dual boot in this machine. I have some programmes that will only run in Windows. Can I install Windows beside Peppermint or will I need to wipe the HD, install Windows and the install Peppermint alongside ???

1. The first thing is to become 'comfortable using a Linux distro'.
2. Then make sure you have a Live Linux distro to get you out of any trouble (Live Linux Knoppix is my recommendation).
3. I assume you have your hard disc split so "/home" is separate partition to "/" root. This allows backups or work documents etc on /home to be saved independently of the operating system.
4. Find tutorials etc. on help  systems. Many help sites for Linux exist.
5. Learn to work at the command line  (CLI).

All learning is self help and repeated trying.  Good Luck.

That seems OK. But note and make sure BIOS will BOOT from USB, DVD , Hard drive.
Have you tried a USB key with Live knoppix  Linux system?   Or Live Linux DVD of Knoppix. I use Knoppix as my main testing Linux.

Yes, the menu editor.

Right-click the "Menu" button, and select "Edit Applications" .. find the application on the right, then on the left select "Hide in the menu".

First:-   removed '/home/geoffrey/.local/share/applications/google-chrome-beta.desktop'

Second:-  removed '/home/geoffrey/.local/share/applications/googlechromebeta.desktop

Yes. Thank you. Is there no other way of doing this sort of thing other than getting on the Forum?

and
Code: [Select]
rm -v ~/.local/share/applications/googlechromebeta.desktop
is it gone from the menu now ?

Hardware Compatibility / sdb1 fails to mount - corrupt block data?
« Last Post by d_p on December 14, 2018, 06:14:08 pm »
I've got a Seagate hard drive in an external caddy that has stopped communicating. This is an important drive in that it contains recent work, so I'd like to restore access enough to transfer files.

I've run a few checks, notably fsck, and cleared a lot of inode and block read errors. But still no access to the files. At this point it looks like I could pursue any number of tests, but which ones? Should I continue trying to repair? Should I attempt a recovery by other means?
