Which LM version are you using?
Several... but was on 17.3 Rosa Mate 64-bit when I tested launching nwipe.

Typing only "nwipe" even used with sudo does not work.
Hmm...works for me (without sudo). :?: Anyway, glad you got it going. Sorry I wasn't much help.

Re: GoToMyPC Web To Windows 10 Desktop

I can see where it would be a lot of trouble to have to boot into Windows just to occasionally access GTMP, so the solution may just be Windows in a virtual machine. Don't know how that will work since I've never used GTMP, but it's what I have done for the Windows apps that I'm too lazy to change.

Re: Arch question....

My choice is to use Pamac, which looks a little like Synaptic to me, and is fully functional. I've never seen the need for a second software center like Ubuntu introduced a while back. But, I understand that not everyone is like me (thank goodness), and a little web searching lead me to someone who ...

Re: GoToMyPC Web To Windows 10 Desktop

Since GoToMyPC is remote desktop software that allows users to access computers remotely using a web browser, I would think you could change your browser settings to spoof Windows so your Linux PC would be identified by GoToMyPC as Windows. https://invisiblecomputer.wonderhowto.com/how-to/trick-webs...

Re: Best Mint Edition for older laptops..?

Like kc1di , my first choice would be XFCE. That is what I use on most of my laptops from that era. I have Mate on my desktop that is just about as old as well. If might be that 18.3 XFCE would be better for you than 19.1 XFCE, but that is not a hard and fast rule. It's just that the farther we go f...

Re: Mint 19 Cinnamon is there any free pdf editor?

I use Xournal. It's not as complex as Master PDF Editor, so I find it more useful for my limited PDF editing needs.

Re: New installation in old desktop

@GS3 - PepperMint 9 and Linux Mint XFCE are basically the same thing when it comes to hardware requirements, they just look a little different. Either one should perform about the same on your old hardware. I say just try them out before install and see what happens. Don't bother with Mint Cinnamon ...

Re: Smallest/most obscure reason you've ever changed distros?

A couple of cases that come to mind.... I didn't (and still don't) really like the green theme of Mint, and rather than spending the time needed to make Mint look like something else i installed PepperMint. All the same tools I'm used to with a better (to my eyes) color scheme. But for some reason, ...

Re: Can you create a smaller boot image to fit on a CDROM?

Another option would be to create a PLOP boot CD: https://www.plop.at/en/bootmanager/download.html
Which will hand off to your USB drive for installation. Work like a charm, as I've found out a couple of times with old hardware.
