Displaying Full Storage Capacity after removing Wndows 10 after a dual boot

I’m not able to access the available storage list. It only shows a partial section of the memory leaving out the former memory which had Windows 10 installed in it. I’m sending a screenshot just for clarification.
MY hard-disk contains 500GiB but it says only 135GiB left
Kindly help pls.the image shows the partitions and the notification about only showing 135GiB leaving out the rest of the memory

Black screen after uninstalled python 2.7

Black screen after uninstalled python 2.7

I’ve uninstalled python 2.7 completely from my Linux Mint Cinnamon. After reboot, the system didn’t turn on. It shows me the screensaver with my account and the space to insert the password. But after the access, all I can see is a black screen with no possibility of access to the terminal.
I’ve tried CTRL+ALT+F1, but nothing happens.

How can I access to the terminal? Should I reinstall Linux from Windows, since my computer has a dual boot with the two systems?

Rotate touchscreen in CLI mode

Rotate touchscreen in CLI mode

I’m asking for the help with my problem. I’m developing a Qt GUI application, that will run on Raspberry Pi 4 as an embedded device. I need to run my app at boot without showing the desktop to the user. My main goal is: when the device is booting, it should display my custom splash screen until my Qt application shows on’ the screen. No desktop visible or any boot text in the process, users doesn’t need to even know it’s a linux and Raspberry Pi that everthing’s running on. So I managed to get rid of all boot messages and logos I don’t need by replacing drivers/video/logo/logo_linux_clut224.ppm in my kernel to my own custom logo graphic, recompiling it and modifying the /boot/cmdline.txt. As I need to prevent the user from interacting the desktop and doesn’t really need it in my project I was advised to run my Qt app in CLI mode, rendering it directly in the framebuffer. So I switched my Raspberry to boot in CLI autologin in raspi-config and add a service which runs my app at boot with a -platform linuxfb option. Everything works as expected, my custom splash screen is displayed for the entire boot until my app shows.

The problem is I need the app to run in portrait mode. Rotating the display was easy, as I only needed to add display_rotate=1 in /boot/config.txt. But the touchscreen stayed in landscape mode and I can’t find a way to rotate it. All the solutions I can find use xinput to rotate the touchscreen or add the Option "TransformationMatrix" to the /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/40-libinput.conf which I can’t use because I don’t have a X server running.

Can anyone tell me how can I rotate the touchscreen without X server?

Double win10 installs – both bitlocker protected and isolated

Double win10 installs – both bitlocker protected and isolated


  • AMD Ryzen processor, ASUS Crosshair Hero VI mb, no TPM installed
  • M.2 Samsung 960 PRO SSD
  • SATA Samsung 840 PRO SSD

I would like to have latest win10 2004 on both SSDs and isolated from one another for privacy reasons.

  • 1st SSD is for work and part of AzureAD
  • 2nd SSD should be private

M.2 is already installed, with bitlocker and working. Asking for PIN on boot (before OS menu).

When I tried to setup bitlocker on 2nd SSD bitlocker setup crashed and cannot boot to 2nd OS anymore.
TrueCrypt is also an alternative for 2nd SSD, but seems I will have same problems with bootloaders?

Any suggestions how to set this up?
If really necessary I will reinstall everything.
