Re: Unable to install ekho ppa as it does not support xenial

catweazel,
Thanks for your good advice. I guess unfortunately I am just stuck, at my advanced old age. A few years ago I lost my Ekho TTS when I switched from an old Compaq computer to a newer one, due to plain negligence.

Ever since I recently took out a subscription to a local newspaper through Groupon, I've been constantly flooded with Groupon advertising e-mails. I've yet to find an effective way to get rid of them. Any help will be much appreciated.

Sudden Thunderbird 52.8.0 Problem

2019-07-07 Recently when people receive a message from me via my Thunderbird e-mail client, they would see '??' all over the message, especially in place of the period punctuation mark. '??' can occur also in the middle of a sentence. This abnormality pops up in their replies to me also. It feels al...

[SOLVED] Removal of nasty maps.mysearches malware from Firefox

2019-06-28

I need help in removing maps.mysearches from my Linux Mint computer. It takes over the screen whenever I go online via Firefox. I think the participating advertisers are equally guilty. Any help will be greatly appreciated as always.

jchelpau and WharfRat,

Thanks very much for your advice. It seems to pop up when I visit websites such as gmail.google.com, reuters.com, bbc.com, and scmp.com. So far it hasn't interfered with my visits to this website. I'll update Firefox and see.

Re: [SOLVED] Where should MFC42u.DLL be placed on Linux Mint 18.3?

phd21, What I mean is that when I attempt to access a website via Firefox specifically, Linux frequently displays a yellow window telling me that another browser is already active and asks me if I'd like to stop it.

Re: [SOLVED] Where should MFC42u.DLL be placed on Linux Mint 18.3?

phd21, Thanks for being so thoughtful. In my Windows days, I found mspaint.exe to be very easy to use and helpful. I'll definitely look into Ksnip when I get a chance. By the way, can you tell me why Yahoo always gets in my way when I try to go online (via Firefox, my default browser)? How can I get...

Re: [SOLVED] Where should MFC42u.DLL be placed on Linux Mint 18.3?

phd21,
You're right. Kolourpaint is much easier to install than MFCu42.DLL or mspaint.exe. I like Kolourpaint as it's quite similar to mspaint.exe and easy to use also. Thanks very much again.

Did you check the bios battery?
Amii_Leigh,

Thank you very much for your quick and precise diagnosis. Indeed the battery was probably as old as the machine.
