Re: bind9 security update: NOT AUTHENTICATED software warning

Also, does this in any way relate to samba No. Read the description in the software manager (" Internet domain name server"). I don't use any linux server ..... I wonder, why you have bnd9 installed anyway. It is not installed by default. EDIT: I just saw this update and it updates some libraries, ...

Re: bind9 security update: NOT AUTHENTICATED software warning

Why are you trying to update, that which is already installed, is it not working? Many people coming from Windows think that they need to constantly update everything but with Linux that's not true. If the latest version is not in the official Mint repositories it may be assumed that something in t...

bind9 security update: NOT AUTHENTICATED software warning

Hi, As I try to update my bind9 package to version 1:9.9.5.dfsg-3ubuntu0.15, a warning informing that such software is NOT AUTHENTICATED appears; package details: bind9-host (version 1:9.9.5.dfsg-3ubuntu0.14) will be upgraded to version 1:9.9.5.dfsg-3ubuntu0.15 dnsutils (version 1:9.9.5.dfsg-3ubuntu...

USB keyboards dead after few weeks: motherboard or voltage?

Hi, So my 2-years laptop has taken the murderous path, with a clear preference for brand new USB keyboards... I must mention I spilled coffee over its in-built keyboard over a year ago, then tried substituting the piece but some keys still wouldn't work; I then started using a PS2 keyboard via a PS2...

Non-supported keyboard OR cooked motherboard? [Acer Aspire E15 - ES1-512]

Hey guys, I'm getting really frustrated over this issue and thought maybe someone could give me some hints; this is it: 1- bought current laptop Acer Aspire E15 ES1 - 512 back in Dec 2014, running Mint 17.1, everything pretty well so far (though it often freezes on shutdown); 2 - spilled coffee on t...

Re: [Security] - What browser combination for online bankin

I guess I'm paranoid, because I use two different browsers for general browsing and for financial stuff also. I use Firefox with flashplayer set to ask before activating for general browsing since it is better at privacy, and I use Chrome for the occasional financial stuff since it is a little more...

Re: [Security] - What browser combination for online bankin

Well guys, thank you for so many great answers. I will definitely install the sandbox and create a double FF profile (thanks Cosmo, I didn't even know such an option existed) they seem to be the most adequate for my needs. Also I've been wanting to use a VPN for quite some time, need to find a relia...

Re: [Security] - What browser combination for online bankin

Hope this helps ... Hi phd21, thanks for your reply. I agree with you that Tor is not the answer in this case, indeed I'm not considering it. Also, I'm using a number of Add-ons on FF but mostly for privacy concerns (with the exception of Https everywhere), I understand they don't make any differen...

Re: [Security] - What browser combination for online bankin

since I'm using FF for usual browsing, I guess I'll have to rely on some other alternative. Any other suggestion? No. There's absolutely no reason at all to avoid Firefox for banking, just because you're also using Firefox for normal browsing. No offense meant, but it all sounds rather paranoid to ...

Re: [Security] - What browser combination for online bankin

I am interested in understanding what browser(s) would you recommend for online banking/paypal/similar? Firefox, Chromium and Chrome. All three are well-supported and receive security updates quickly and regularly. All those without any special add-ons. Add-ons aren't necessary for secure banking. ...

Re: Overheating on Vostro 1310 (Mint 14)

Please install the NVIDIA graphics driver from the Drivers tab of the Software Sources program (Mint 14; for other Mints it is found at a different place). A temperature of 60°C will not damage the CPU, nor will 70°C do any harm to a modern GPU. But since it is possible that the computer gets hotte...

Hi, I've been using Mint for the past year and have been experiencing some overheating issues on laptop (netbook is working just fine), which is a Dell Vostro 1310, running Mint 14 xfce: it used to run at really high temps, around 70 for the CPU and 80 for the GPU.

Re: screen appearance problem

Something I've realized recently is that the situation shown on the screenshots tends to get worse after 5-10 min after booting, which seems to be linked to the fan running faster; may it have anything to do with overclock issues? wouldn't be the first time on this pc... Do you know what the actual...
