Since PureBasic is a commercial product you might need to contact them to get support.

What distribution/version are you running?

The desktop is just a program(s) running on top of the operating system. If the x server has crashed for some reason you can try restarting by just typing in the command
startx. If it will not start post the error messages.

FYI, the system creates 6 virtual terminals (ttys) that you can switch by typing alt-f1 to alt-f6 if the desktop is not running. The x server/desktop runs on tty7 but it is possible to run multiple desktops on ttys 8-12.

You would use shielded cable in factories or places that have high electro-magnetic interference(EMI).

The typical home environment only needs unshielded cable.

Home automation is a very big area. The software depends on the hardware.

Devices that are labeled as IoT (Internet of Things) like coffee pots, Refrigerators, Nanny Cameras, Thermostats etc. are connected by standard WiFi. They either use a phone application, web interface or maybe include a Windows/Mac application. Anything not using a web browser would require an application programming interface from the manufacture. I don't know how many manufactures support linux

For devices that are not wireless IoT like lights, fans use what is known as a hub. They use a phone app or Windows/Mac application or voice control. They convert a WiFi command to something that the device understands. Again you would need to know the API for that hub. There are several manufactures that have their own hub system. Again I don't know how many manufactures support linux.

There is Insteon, X10, Z wave technology that you can interface directly but may not be open source.

~/.quote1 I do not know if the . in the file name is a typo but in this context it means hidden which I doubt is what you want.

This is your assignment and not ours so we are not going to write it for you. I/we will answer specific questions. These guides should hellp a bit.

Windows 8 and 10 normal shutdown actually hibernates the system so that booting is faster. This is why you see the warning message. You can force your windows drive to be mounted with the below command but you will lose any files that are open.

sudo mount -t ntfs-3g -o remove_hiberfile /dev/sda2 /mnt/

If your running windows 8 or 10 then it has to be uefi unless you upgraded from windows 7 and you need to use a 64 bit version. The Mint installer should of detected this so not sure what went wrong. You can reinstall grub

Have you read the man pages for each command? The ps command provides a snapshot of active processes. kill sends a signal to a specific process. Since kill uses the PID of a process the way to find it is from ps.

What do you mean by chain?
In your research have you searched the internet for information about the ps and kill command using your favorite search engine?

Your using LVM which is different from a regular partition so regular tools will not work. You might want to google to find out how it works. First question is what do you want to do with the free space?

It helps to know the distribution/version but we need to know the filesystem type of your root logical volume. Look at the output of the lsblk or mount command but it probably is either xfs or ext4. If it is xfs then there isn't a good or easy way to reduce the size.

Many installers create by default a boot partition and a LVM partition that contains the / filesystem and swap. The LVM partition is just a container for the volume group/logical volumes. Assuming your root LV is ext4 you need to boot a live CD/USB.

Basic steps:
1. resize root LV
2. resize volume group
3. resize LVM partition.

Android is based on linux and Remix OS is basically Android for a x86 based computer. I am unfamiliar with Remix and have no idea how it works.

From the link below the recommended requirements are:

2 GHz dual core processor or better
2 GB system memory
Minimum 8 GB of free hard drive space

filelist.txt contents:
file1
file2

while read xFile; do
echo $xFile
find / -name "$xFile" 2> /dev/null >> /output/file.txt
done < filelist.txt

Without the >> the output file will be overwritten on each iteration of the loop.

cron is a time based scheduler. You can automatically run tasks and programs based upon time and date. Typically it is used for system maintenance and administration although it can be use for any purpose where you need to run a program at regular intervals.
If you need to regular run a program or regularly perform some task on your website then it could be of some benefit.

You can verify via the lspci command that your 610 has an Intel 2200 wireless adapter. It uses the ipw2200 which I would think is still included. The output of the ip a command should show all interfaces and if the device is recognized you should see both the wired and wireless adapters.

What distribution/version are you running?

Passwords entered at the command line are not echoed. You have to type them in the blind.

I do not condone the computer's shop actions since the computer could contain personal information. It would of been better if they had wiped the drive and reinstalled windows.

If you are interested in learning linux it would be best if you reinstalled. linux is not windows and depending on how you want to use the computer it might be best to stick with windows. If you are still in contact with the computer shop owner then ask if they still have have an OEM windows installation disk.

Welcome.

Cinnamon is a desktop i.e. graphical user interface (GUI). I assume you have install linux mint but knowing what distribution will help. When Mint was installed it would of asked to create a new username with a password. This information is what you would enter. Did you install linux?

Without knowing anything about your process it is impossible to say why it loops or why it stays active

Did you format the drive to NTFS in the windows computer?

Did you eject the drive or unmount the drive using the file manager or command line prior to physically removing it from the computer? linux buffers reads and writes so if you did not unmount the drive there still could be unwritten data which would then show up as corrupted on the windows box.

Welcome,

What distribution / version of linux are you running on the laptop? Define not start. What do you see on the monitor if anything.

You will need to create a live USB to see if we can rescue your system.
