Re: Some help here. -New partial fix...

Hi greywoulf, I just noticed your PM to me. I have not really been on the forum for a few days. After re-reading your post and the replies, and your command results in this PM, it looks like your WiFi adapter Broadcom Wireless LAN (802.11bgn) is not active or went bad. It does not show up in the res...

Hi crultmin, Welcome to the wonderful world of Linux Mint and its excellent forum! You are welcome... TeamViewer (TV) is a superb remote control & remote access application.

Re: Teamviewer doesn't open (crashes) ?

Hi crultmin, I just read your post and the good replies to it. Here are my thoughts on this as well. You (and other Linux users) might consider using the Teamviewer (TV) Linux archive file rather than their deb file. AFAIK, their Linux archive file is self-contained, ready to run, software.

Re: Playing Netflix on Linux Mint

Hi neilmurg, I just tried Chrome 79, Firefox 73?, Vivaldi, and Brave (Version 1.2.43 Chromium: 79 .0.3945.130 (Official Build) (64-bit)) browsers with Netflix and all but Vivaldi worked fine. Brave asked to install the "widevine" DRM drivers which I let it do, and it worked. Not sure if it matters, ...

Their browser add-on extension had some issues last year, so not sure if that was fixed or not. Hope t...
