Re: Hey gyes. Can I ask somewhat of a stupid Question.

so, if you got that HeadSet from your Local Supermarket ( ALDI ? )
- maybe look at taking it back, as it is not-meeting-consumer-expectations ( you )
not fit for purpose - - is what the Local Consumer Advice Bureau would say . . . .

Re: Can I safely remove GIMP and install the latest Flatpack version?

you should be able to safely remove:
- Gimp
- gimp-data
via Package Manager AKA synaptic

you can then check what Flatpak program(s) are installed, if any:

Code: Select all

flatpak list
assuming that you do have Flatpak installed - that is.

Re: After update Firefox doesn't remember settings

Thanks for the fast reply, I'm not sure how to follow that instruction however. Doesn't seem to be a terminal command, it's not in the "help" option in the start menu or update manager? that's strange - - when in FireFox: - click on the Help Name Tab that is at The Top of the Screen - click on the ...

Re: After update Firefox doesn't remember settings

there has been some anecdotal evidence that something is going on with Firefox,,
so initially, just try resetting FF:

and then see if that helps all.

Re: SOLVED: Transferring Mint SSD to another laptop?

figured that much:
- it usually pays to remove any Linux Video Drivers ,,
and place the system back to basics.

then add-in the Linux Video Drivers for the new system.

and a little suprised that Windows, was so successful, as it's usually a PiTA.,

Re: Mint can't boot after installing wine 3.0

Hi Kwaku
you will need to give a lot more information, before we can attempt to help you:
- Make & Model No of your machine.
- which Desktop Environment of LinuxMint, that you are currently using.

and a description of what you did, and where you obtained that method if installing ./wine 3.0

well - - you could just get an HP all-in-one as those HPs are analogous with Linux Systems . for a straight Printer, then a Brother Monochrome Laser Printer is the perfect package . . the cheaper all-in-one are either Epson OR Cannon. - we have an Epson XP-432 in the Office & it does have WiFi integ...

the Best Back-up for non-tech users is to keep it super simple- - KISS - - - just copy your /Data files to some usb sick - re-install with the same ISO that you originally installed with. if you have installed, maybe just a few, extra programs, note what they are,, so that you can redo them after yo...

Re: Newbie: Full disk encryption - as with TrueCrypt under Windows 7/10

but, if you did backup elsewhere - then you'd to encrypt that too,, wouldn't you ?
otherwise, it's pointless in encrypting just the Full Disk, isn't it ?

ie: lot's of folks will use TrueCrypt within the windows system,
but then neglect to include the ext backup, in the TrueCrypt options . . .
