I want to Install Linux Mint on ThinkCentre M55p Series Type 8811


If it Has Windows 8 or 8.1 you might need a new Hard Drive to do this. Windows 8 and 8.1 are encrypted so you can't use Linux of any type. If it has Windows XP try Linux Mint 13 "Maya", the replacement for win xp, If Windows 7 64 bit: Try Linux Mint 17.1 *Rebecca"

Did u dual install Linux and 7 on 2 different Partitioned Drives?

Is it only linux with the problem or is windows playing up to?

possible a bad install of linux as a OS?

Try uninstalling linux (leave windows) and partition the hardrive (making 2 different drives i.e. C and D on a single Physical Hard Drive -- its just divided into 2 parts)

and try running Linux from a single clean hard drive and leaving Windows seperate.

that MIGHT solve ur problem. gl.

Lost internet connection linux mint 14


Installing your wireless driver on a Linux distribution is only half the battle.
Once it's installed, you have to configure it.
This means adding the network name, or SSID (service set identifier), and the passkey for your wireless network.
In older versions of Linux, this had to be done with the "iwconfig" command line tools.
Luckily, Linux Mint has incorporated a graphical utility for configuring your Ethernet and wireless adapters.
Open the "Control Center," which will be found under the main program menu on the bottom right of your computer screen.
Click the "Network Connections" icon under the "Internet and Network" section.

Click the "Wireless" tab in the "Network Connections" window.


Click the "Add" button.


Type the name for your wireless network in the "SSID" text box.


Choose one of the options under the "Mode" drop-down list. Most users will choose the "Infrastructure" option.


Click the "Security" tab.


Choose your network's security protocol from the "Security" drop-down list.


Type the key for your wireless network in the "Key" text box.


Click "Apply" to save the changes.


Click the network connection icon in the task bar. It will look like two computers and can be found next to the clock.


Click on the name of your wireless connection to connect to the network.



http://www.linuxmint.com/wiki/index.php/MintWifi - The_network_manager.

Activate a Wi-Fi Card for Linux Mint
Log into Mint as user root. Launch a command shell, either by logging in in text mode or by launching a Terminal window from the graphical desktop.

Type the following command into the shell:
iwconfig
Press "Enter." Make a note of the name chosen by Linux Mint for your Wi-Fi card it will be the only word displayed flush with the left edge of the screen.



Type the following command into the shell:
iwlist wlan0 scan
Replace "wlan0" with the name of the Wi-Fi card you noted earlier.
Press "Enter."
Mint will display a list of the wireless networks in range that you can potentially join.


Type the following command into the shell:
iwconfig wlan0 essid library-wireless
Replace "library-wireless" with the name of the network you want to join, from the list generated by the "iwlist" command. Linux Mint will join the network.
At this point you can browse the Web and access the Internet in other ways via the Wi-Fi card on your computer.

I have a hp pavillion dv4 2126 tx laptop with windows 7 os. i need to load fedora or ubunto for the same. i want to know how to do it without disturbing windows os and my files.


First you will need to partition the hard drive. This can be done from within Windows 7 using the Disk Management utility. You may access this by right clicking on "Computer" and going to manage. You will then click on disk management to the left in the navigation pane. From there you will see a listing of your hard disks and their existing partitions (if any). You now need to right click on the partition you would like to shrink in order to make space for your Linux install. The minimum recommended amount is 15GB, but if you have more to spare, I highly recommend utilizing it.
Once the partition is shrunk you will have some unallocated space that the Linux install can take advantage of. You now simply need to boot from your Linux install CD and choose this unallocated space as the install point.
There is a video and an article I will reference that should help as well.

I'd like to install a version of Linux on my laptop. I am a beginner; what ill fit me and how to install it?


For a beginner the best version of Linux for a laptop remains UBUNTU. But you can count on LINUX MINT and the latest version of it is called JULIA.
You can find UBUNTU here. And LINUX MINT here.
The BOTH can be installed via installation DVD and for both also you can TRY BEFORE INSTALL, meaning you can run the version of LINUX LIVE, taste and test it before you will install it on your hard drive.

XP is dead. Don't waste money on it. Download a free, safe, modern operating system and install that. I have an old Toshiba and it runs Puppy Linux, but you might like Mint or Zorin, or Lubuntu if it's a 32 bit system. download one or two onto flash drives or CD, and give it a spin. Puppy will run off a CD, even if your hard drive is bad.

Install Linux OS


I would recommend installing Linux Mint LXDE, Cinnamon or KDE, which is a free OS available for free download from http://linuxmint.com Cinnamon and KDE are full featured, XFCE is streamlined and slightly faster and a better choice for older computers with less memory and/or storage space. All versions come with Firefox and LibreOffice full Office Suite, capable of saving and reading files in the popular MS Office formats like .doc, .docX, .ppt and xls.

Linux comes with almost everything necessary to begin using the computer immediately after installing the OS.

To install it on a netbook or notebook computer, I'm assuming you don't have a DVD optical drive so you have to install it from a USB thumb drive. If you have a DVD optical drive, I would still recommend installing it from the USB thumb drive, ... it's more reliable and less prone to failures from trying to burn a DVD on old, dirty or out-of tolerance equipment.

First download the .iso file on another computer. If you're not sure if your computer is 32-bit or 64-bit, you can use the 32-bit for both, or try the 64-bit - if that doesn't work, use the 32-bit.

Use a free program to create a bootable USB using the .iso file. (You can't just copy the file to the USB drive) ... I'd recommend using Active ISO Burner from NTFS.com ... here's the download link ... http://www.ntfs.com/iso-burning.htm (You should be using at least an 8 GB size thumb drive).

Once you've created the bootable USB drive from the .iso file, you should be able to insert it and start the computer and see the Linux Mint startup screen. It will come up in LIVE mode, without installing itself, so you can try it out.

If you want to install it, make sure you are connected to the Internet and have your AC power adapter plugged in.

If the computer doesn't come up with the Linux screen, you probably just need to reset your BIOS boot order so it boots from the USB driver first. Plug in the USB drive and start the computer. Look of instructions for set up or boot order, usually pressing F2 while the computer is starting. Follow the directions to move the USB to the top of the boot devices, i.e. about the hard drive. Save changes and restart the computer. It should now boot from the USB. If you have trouble doing this or burning the bootable USB, you might have a geek friend or relative that can help or do it for you.

When the LIVE mode comes up, it displays the Linux desktop with an Install icon. If you double click the Install Icon you will begin the installation process and just follow the simple prompts and create a password when prompted.

Linux never requires anti-virus and does not become infected. You can visit the main http://linuxmint.com website and download the .PDF manual if you are interested.

Your computer is probably 64-bit, but if not, there is also a 32-bit version available for download.

The image shown below is from my Acer and is Linux Mint KDE, which is also available from the same website and similar to LXDE, but more full-featured. All Google programs I know of are available for Linux, since Google uses 100% Linux. Android is Linux also.

Once you install your Linux, you'll want to run the Update Manager to get the latest updates.

On my Acer netbook I have 3 Linux OS's installed. Linux Mint Cinnamon 64-bit, Linux Mint KDE Cinnamon 64-bit and Linux Mint XFCE 64-bit. I select the OS I want at startup when the computer starts.

Hope this helps. bdf3eb0b-7c1d-4c93-b25d-72c3f473ae47.jpg
