It began with busybox and policykit-1 and now the firefox security update won't load either. Without these security updates none of the other updates will l...

I am having a fairly frequent problem (i.e. NOT every time I log in) but quite often this happens. The Date and Time Settings are set to Network Time - ON. However, when I log in sometimes the Date comes up as 11th February 2016. This means that some programs (e.g. Gnucash and the Chrome browser) fl...

Re: Skype for Linux - Previous Versions Link

Many thanks, Jerry F, and others on the Forum re Skype 8.13 problems. Is there a way to stop Mint Update constantly recommending the upgrade to 8.13? It's no big deal (daily having to refuse to upgrade) but it would be nice to banish this prompt to upgrade 8.13 constantly appearing. Many thanks for ...

Me, too, Bob. Exactly the same. But it was the Mint update and, so, I trusted it. My webcam is a Logitech C920. The audio picks up from the Webcam so it is registering there. I went back to the Skype website but I can't see any way of downloading my previous 8.11.nn version which DID work. If I get ...
