After struggling with a graphics card issue on my hp zbook 17 G6 (as it turns out HP borks the boot of Zorin by implementing a “feature” of hybrid graphics card switching) I now can’t open the settings panel. It immediately drops me into a hibernate mode and logs me off.
sudo apt update
sudo apt dist-upgrade
sudo apt remove unity-control-center
sudo apt install unity-control-center
And got no love.
So I just want to go back to that happy place where everything worked and all I had to do was close the laptop lid when I logged in and reopen it and all was good.
So I want to reinstall. But being a Linux noob I’m not sure how to navigate the reinstall, especially the partition section. I’m not sure what to do when I get to the “something else” option of reinstall.
I don’t really care about retaining my /home directory as I haven’t really done much yet. I just want a reinstall, not two instances of Zorin on my laptop and I don’t want to screw up my grub menu.
thanks in advance.
