  • Linux Lite: 3.4 64bit

  • MEMORY: 4Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: EVGA/NVIDIA GeForce GT 730 2GB GDDR5
When I try to access the contents of my USB flash disks, only a text editor opens. For some reason,  this does not happen on the LL live disk. Should I re-install only the OS partition or also /var, /opt, and /usr? This problem seems unrelated to drcrkeller's.

  • Linux Lite: 1.0.0

I've seen similar before, maybe this will help?
Geany, referred to in that thread, is my preferred text editor.
