Re: audio software for production

I don't see any compelling reason to use something like Manjaro over Mint, or even Ubuntu Studio over Mint. Ubuntu Studio doesn't have anything that you can't install in regular Ubuntu anyway. Personally I think Ardour is probably the best Linux DAW. However, you're going to have potential trouble w...

Re: Mirror recomendations?

While you often hear that you should use the fastest mirrors, that's not consistent enough to be really useful. I just use the main mirror, it's reliable. Plus not all mirrors have all the packages. Dicking around with that and doing speed tests for mirrors arguably takes more time than just selecti...

Re: Video Down Loader Stopped Working

Actually streaming downloaders have always stopped working sometimes, streaming sites don't like people using them so they change protocols all the time. However, with Github being forced to remove youtube-dl, the situation seems to be getting worse.

Re: Which graphics accelerator for Cinnamon 19.3 32-bit

I would also recommend Xfce, but I do want to point out that when you install LM19.3, the default kernel is 5.0 which is no longer supported. I've seen people post on the forum with video related issues and they were still running 5.0 which lost support in July 2019. The issues went away when they ...

Re: Clam Anti Virus Settings

The best ClamAV settings in Linux? Uninstalling it. You don't need AV software in Linux because you'd have to be a complete idiot to write viruses for Linux.

Re: LMDE 4 - Add a VPN account

You should really post LMDE support questions in the LMDE section of this forum. Debian isn't Ubuntu and you will get answers for Ubuntu based Mint that won't work in LMDE. It may not matter for a Cinnamon related question but if you're talking about network connectivity per se it probably would.

Putting in inxi -G output is great but you should actually post complete inxi -Fxz output. But. That's an Intel G33 card and it came out in 2007.
