Re: Multipart FTP

Hi hjalmarsson, You are welcome... I think most people who give Linux Mint a chance, will find it to be a wonderful computer operating system, and it is free, very secure, with free long-term support. I would highly recommend that you create a new post on the FileZilla forum or add to an existing on...

Re: How to install .run driver

Hi Liss I just read your post and the good replies to it. Here are my thoughts on this as well.

Hi dsctr,

You are welcome...

Now that you have your own post, you can continue your questions here.

Re: Scanner recommendation, please?

Hi dsctr, GriffelArt, etc... We have never heard back from the original poster "GriffelArt" and their scanner issues and whether that has been resolved? To Dale "dsctr", so now that you have your printer working, you still have not said if your scanner is now recognized and working? Next step to fig...

Re: Full install on USB issues- GRUB

Hi Stoof2010, +1 for "pbear" tutorial, very nicely done. I especially like the hybrid version. Ok, so I saw a cool video about fully installing Linux on a flash drive for mobility (and easier than a live with persistence with my level of understanding). If that was my video tutorial on YouTube, then...

Re: Run openvpn client without sudo

HI Netherprovinc3, VPN's and their providers are made for security and anonymity, so they usually go through vigorous testing whether they are used directly through an operating system's openVPN software client through something like the Linux Network Manager or console terminal or through a VPN app...

Re: Remove Graphics, Office and Universal Access?

Hi helpmelearn, IMHO, it is not a good idea to remove pre-installed applications like VLC, LibreOffice, Gimp, etc... from your Linux Mint systems as they are integrated into your system and other programs and applications are expecting them to be installed and available. Also, they do not take up mu...
