Re: Software Manager Suggestion

Suggestion for Software Manager : A What is NEW section.
There is an editors pick section and a categories section but a "what's new in the last 6 months" might be nice. and maybe a top 10/20 most used programs list inside the categories section.

Re: Why are my applications not the latest possible version?

kdenlive went from v0 to v16 over 15 years and is one of the top three programs of it's category. Making the jump from v0 to v16 after it's been in the repos for 13 years isn't a frozen software selection, it's a fossilized one. Again I'm not saying we need the latest versions at all times but maybe...

Re: Why are my applications not the latest possible version?

So if an app is using an ANCIENT version like Kdenlive was still using version 0.9 yes that's a leading zero , it is the Mint team we should be poking with a stick not some other group like debian stable?? I noticed kdenlive jumped from version 0.9 to 16.12.2 with mint 18.1 FreeOrion is now 0.4.5 fr...

Re: Mint18 XFCE Post install issues

It appears my external drives are no longer auto mounting. As this is where my wallpapers are it means I have to manually mount and then reset the directory location.

Turned on in "Disks" edit mount options.

Re: Mint18 XFCE Post install issues

Just DL'd burned and booted Ubuntustudio which has the same latest kdenlive and it locked up the entire system just as it did on mint.
So it's not mint it ubuntu and kdenlive and some dependency or other.

trying another distro.

Re: Camera Monitoring with Lorex camera

While some lorex cameras are IP cameras most aren't and only the dvr box has an IP. With the Lorex software the software connects to the DVR box IP and shows the channels. So without knowing how those "channels" are addressed it's not likely to work. I have yet to hear from anyone that has succeeded.
