Re: Remmina: Have to allow remote desktop public connections to connect to local computer?

Generally your router should protect you here. Most consumer routers won't expose computers on the local network to the public internet unless you change a setting on the router to expose it - i.e. port forwarding, DMZ host, etc. I'm assuming you're talking about the Windows firewall. When you first...

Fan turns off on vostro 3450

I recently upgraded to Linux Mint 18 from 17.3. Now my fan occasionally turns off and as a result the computer gets very hot. The CPU dialed all the way down to 100mhz once because of the heat. I reboot and the fan comes back on full blast. Could this be some kind of kernel bug..? It didn't happen w...

Enable touchpad using only the keyboard?

Hi, my mouse ran out of battery out on me earlier and the only way I could use my computer was with the keyboard since I had the touchpad turned off. Is there a way to easily turn on the touchpad using only the keyboard? Eventually I got it, but the System Settings are hard to navigate with keyboard...

Re: iphone mounting problems can't tranfer music etc

iTunes doesn't work in Linux, period.

Apparently it works in Windows in Virtualbox, which may be preferable to dual booting.

Re: Why Linux? Why not Microsoft?

...I wonder why you (yes, you) went away from Microsoft products and embraced Linux? 4) Crapware (malware, nagware, bloatware). This times a thousand. The worst is using "freeware" or even open source programs on Windows. Sourceforge seems to be a primary offender, where downloading "free" software...

Search by Keywords in *.desktop files

It appears that in LM 16/Cinnamon edition, Keywords as defined in *.desktop files are not used in the Search feature of the Cinnamon Menu. Is there any particular reason for this? Seems like it would be an improvement. If Keywords aren't intended for this kind of usage, what ARE they intended for? F...

Hello

New Mint user here. I've been using Ubuntu for about a year but decided to try something different. Tried openSUSE 13.1 but I had a lot of issues. So now I just installed Mint. So far, so good... things are just working. Loaded up NVIDIA drivers with one click (sweet), installed Steam with another c...
