New Users / USB Hard Drives don't show up in 'Files' anymore.
« Last post by jozefmw on Today at 02:27:19 am »
They do show up in 'Disks'.  The folder under /media/Elias/ is empty.
Under Windows they show up and work perfectly.
When I open 'Files', I get /home/elias
Who can help?

Advanced Topics / Re: restoring "deleted" Linux partition and swap file
« Last post by davexnet on Today at 01:05:54 am »
OK thanks for the advice about screen shots.   It would be nice if the forum itself offered storage
space then we could upload this kind of thing directly to the forum (I know it's a long show but I though I'd ask   :D
Of all the forums I belong to, very few offer this)  Ok I'll look into providing the info some other way

In the meantime I have noticed in Testdisk you have to run the full search when  the quick search doesn't find
everything  (I'll try that tomorrow)

Hi davexnet, how's it going?  I have to advise you, We are no longer accepting terminal screenshots as feedback unless there is no other option.  The links to screenshots are too often removed or broken.  This renders the whole thread useless for future inquiries and a complete waste of time for the devs helping out.  Could you please rerun the terminal commands?  It is very easy to copy and paste the outputs into the forum editor.  You can do this by highlighting the area to be copied by holding down the left mouse button while dragging the mouse.  Use the copy function on the right mouse click.  Paste the contents into the forum editor using the paste function on the right mouse click.  To preserve the original format, please make sure you encapsulate the outputs with the, # Insert Code function.  This is located above the  :-[ Embarrassed emoticon in the forum editor.  For extra long outputs, you may use the Sp Spoiler function instead.  This is located above the  :'( Cry emoticon in the forum editor.  To post the outputs from text files, you may use the, Insert Quote function.  This is located above the :-X Lips Sealed emoticon in the forum editor.  If it the outputs are from another computer in your network.  Please copy the outputs to a text file.  These can be saved to a thumb drive and then transferred to forum editor.  The appropriate adjustments must to be made before we can proceed with the thread.  Remember we're trying to help you and in doing so, we hope to help others in the future.  Your efforts are much appreciated.   Many thanks for your cooperation and  understanding  ;).

User Submitted Tutorials / Re: How To: Use symlinks to a DATA partition
« Last post by ogopogo on September 20, 2018, 11:49:43 pm »

You certainly can :)

Move the Virtualbox VMs folder to your DATA partition .. then create a symlink to it in your home folder

Be sure to do this with Virtualbox NOT RUNNING

No problem moving the folder but having trouble with the symlink.

When I go to step #4 of this tutorial  (page #1) under the heading "CREATE SYMLINKS TO YOUR DATA PARTITION" it says:

Code: [Select]
ln -s /mnt/DATA/Documents Documents

Now my folder is called "VirtualBox VMs" so I substituted "Documents" as follows:

Code: [Select]
ln -s /mnt/DATA/VirtualBox VMs VirtualBox VMs

But what I got was:
Code: [Select]
ln: target 'VMs' is not a directory

If I leave out the space and call it:

Code: [Select]
ln -s /mnt/DATA/VirtualBoxVMs VirtualBoxVMs

The symlink file made in my home folder is "broken" as it doesn't exist.

So, seems like I need for you to spell it out for me....the output of mount is:

I'm short on time, so I'll try to keep this brief...


So am I, sorry for the late response then,

here is a concept graphic - just for testing purposal,
two images/versions, one with a thin grid(in the name too) for your 3 monitors, to adjust, or to cut seperate images out if needed
please take the pics as unfinished, they are very large, so i give the project (much larger then the single pics) a hold, just to test even the size of that "thing"...
4K btw.





please test it, some feedback - technical and in terms of taste - would be very kind...

and do not hurry, i have a lot of issues in RL these days, so spare time for that...

Greetings  :)

Software & Applications / Re: Right-Click Menu Cluttered
« Last post by kataclysm on September 20, 2018, 11:37:04 pm »
I did a modified version of that in which I simply removed the line in the file that began text/html=

Now there are only 10 items in the menu, so that definitely helped. Interestingly, only the completely inappropriate things were in that list (like games and the Online Peppermint User Guide). If I could remove appropriate programs from the list that I just don't intend to use to open an HTML, that would be perfect, but even as is this is much more workable.

User Submitted Tutorials / Re: How To: Use symlinks to a DATA partition
« Last post by PCNetSpec on September 20, 2018, 10:19:10 pm »
Not sure if I should start another thread but it has to do with symlinks.

I just installed Oracle VM Virtualbox and created a Windows 7 VM with the help of PCNetSpec.

What I didn't realize at the time was that it was installed to my Home partition which is only 18 GB and as I copied some large files to the desktop it gave me an error saying that it was full.

Seeing as how I have my files all saved in a separate DATA partition (776 GB remaining) , can I also do this  (symlink) the Virtualbox VMs folder that contains the Windows 7 OS  .vbox and .vmdk files to the DATA partition as well?

You certainly can :)

Move the Virtualbox VMs folder to your DATA partition .. then create a symlink to it in your home folder

Be sure to do this with Virtualbox NOT RUNNING



If you have any problems creating the symlink, let us know the full path to the Virtualbox VMs folder that's now on your DATA partition (this will depend on where you mounted the DATA partition).

If you're unsure, post the output from
Code: [Select]
mount
