Mint 19.1: No POST screen visible with new graphic card

My work computer (i7-7700, 64GB RAM) runs Linux Mint 19.1 and Windows 10 in dual boot. This used to work fine, it normally booted Mint unless I pressed F12 during startup and told it to boot windows.

A while ago, the internal graphic chip reached it’s limits, so I received a “Sapphire GPRO 4200 4G GDDR5 PCI-E QUAD MINI DP” graphic card from our IT guy and installed it myself. Without needing to install any drivers, Linux booted properly and all three screens work.

The only problem: There is no more POST screen. All displays stay black until the linux mint bootscreen shows and boot is halfway done. Therefore, I don’t get the opportunity to press F12 and boot into Windows anymore. Could anybody please point me in the right direction of how to solve this?

So far I tried:

  • googling the problem

  • trying two slightly different drivers (amdgpu-pro-18.20, two versions, one from sapphire, one directly from AMD). the install seems to work, however the Graphics card is called “Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Venus LE / Tropo PRO-L [Radeon HD 8830M / R7 M465X]” in the system info, not sure if this is right

  • I removed the graphics card and went back to using the normal graphics chip, this worked fine, I get my post screen back and can boot windows

  • Practicing when to press F12 and how to select windows using the graphic chip. I then tried the same with the card installed, didn’t work, if I press F12, then down+enter like I normally would to select windows, it somehow aborts the boot process and I am stuck with a blank screen.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I do 95% of my work in Mint, but sometimes need Windows (mainly for office stuff). I have been using linux for quite a while, but I am still fairly new to many aspects of it.

Odd issue with Mint

I ask the question here as I don’t think is is ONLY Mint, as it’s using the same update repo as Ubuntu.

Either way, I’m not sure what to do here. Never seen this error before.

Can I launch marcos and shortcuts from a second keyboard on Linux Mint?

I have a small numpad keyboard which I would like to use for launching marcos and shortcuts, alongside my regular keyboard. I can attach marcos and shortcuts to these keys (i.e, numpad 1 minimises the active window), but my primary keyboard numpad also activates the shortcut.

I would like a way to have the secondary keyboard act completely separately and to then attach shortcuts to it.

Here is the output I get from xinput.

Instalar o docker no Mint

Estou tentando instalar o docker no meu Notebook com Linux Mint 19 Cinamon 64 bits utilizando este tutorial

Só que ao chegar nessa linha 

1. Me deparo com os seguintes problemas

sudo: curl: command not found gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found. 
  1. E se eu tentar instalar o curl usando o sudo apt-get install curl

Me retorna isso aqui

Você pode querer executar 'apt --fix-broken install' para corrigí-los. Os pacotes a seguir têm dependências desencontradas:  curl : Depende: libcurl4 (= 7.58.0-2ubuntu3.6) mas não será instalado  mongodb-org-server : Depende: libcurl3 (>= 7.16.2) mas não será instalado  warsaw : Depende: libcurl3 mas não será instalado ou                    libcurl4 mas não será instalado E: Dependências desencontradas. Tente 'apt --fix-broken install' sem nenhum pacote (ou especifique uma solução). 
  1. Se eu tento isso apt --fix-broken install não funciona

  2. Se eu tentar assim sudo apt-get --fix-broken install o comando funciona mas nao resolve. Tenho o seguinte retorno

    The following additional packages will be installed: libcurl3 Os NOVOS pacotes a seguir serão instalados: libcurl3 0 pacotes atualizados, 1 pacotes novos instalados, 0 a serem removidos e 0 não atualizados.

Wifi driver on HP 17-ca0205ng after installing Linux mint 19.1

I installed Linux Mint 19.1 on a brand new HP 17-ca0205ng. Then there is no wifi driver. So I am trying to install rtl8821ce. So I downloaded the software from:

Unpacked zip archive,changed the Makefile. Line “export TopDIR ?= …” to export “TopDIR ?= PATH TO EXTRACTED DIRECTORY”. make sudo make install sudo modprobe -a 8821ce

But when I run make, I got error message that says: Initialization from incompatible pointer type.

Could anyone please help me?

comando java -version no linux mint 19.1 me mostra o resultado errado

então, eu sou novato no linux e não sei bem como instalar o jdk, mas segui o passo a passo deste tutorial aqui: Antes disso, eu ja tinha desinstalado o opendJDK que ja vem com o linux.

Em fim, eu não sei exatamente onde eu errei no tutorial, o problema que eu tenho é que quando vou verificar a versão do java instalado(java -version), no terminal aparece a versão javac: javac 1.8.9_201

E o comando javac aparece corretamente. Mas é isso, não consigo ver qual minha versão do java, alguém pode me ajudar?
