Re: How to verify the ISO image on Windows

It might be worth noting, for the benefit of those like me who are not very familiar with Windows, that Notepad does not interpret the carriage return character by itself as a new line. It expects both CR and LF. So, the md checksum text file in Notepad will display as a single line. If your iso is ...

updating through my local public library

I just upgraded to 19.2 with Mate, but now I am about to lose direct Internet access for a while. Is there a way I can take a USB drive to my library which contains information about my PC and what packages I have installed, and carry back home the updated versions or even new packages, which I coul...

Re: batch processing for a "slide show" video

I can make shell calls from within my POVray script, to make as many copies as I want, even of images not created by POVray. POVray uses a variable "clock" which can be used to determine what frame number applies. So using my example above, if the frame is foo21.png then that frame has not yet been ...

[SOLVED] batch processing for a "slide show" video

I'm making an animated video, many sections of which are more like a slide show, with identical sequential frames. I thought to write a script to copy one file (which is an image file) to mulitple image files which have sequential names. For example, I pass in the three parameters foo021.png, 22, 38...

[SOLVED] openjdk packages got upgraded, now my java applets don't work

My OS is LM 19 with MATE 64 bit. Earlier on Wednesday evening the 23rd, I know at least one of my applets was working correctly.

[SOLVED] how to make a sandbox?

In the Linux Games Database is the game Unreal World, which is not in any repository that I know of, but is available as a .deb file. (It's also available as a binary in a tarball but that has the same basic problem.) My OS is LM 19 with Mate 64-bit. When I ran gdebi to install it, it messed with my...

Re: difficulty adding an additional repository

Okay, thanks for the info.

In more general terms, is there some hub site or resource for exploring other repositories? A web page for specific software may tell you about what repository it uses, but is there a place that keeps track of current repos, not necessarily just for Linux Mint?

I recently installed LM19 with MATE 64 bit. Everything was working fine. Then, while following instructions in a README file to build some software, I typed in: echo "PATH=PATH:`pwd`" >> ~/.bashrc source ~/.bashrc I'm not sure if either of these commands are the culprits, but now none of my shell co...

If the Receiver is used for both keyboard and mouse, then it could be the Mouse has lost pairing with the Receiver. If that's the situation......
