Re: openresolv as "drop in replacement".. is that simple and safe?

Hi redlined, You are welcome... I use openresolv and it appears to work well. As for preventing VPN connection DNS leaks, I still have to check all OpenVPN server configuration files (somewhere.ovpn) that I import through the Network Manager in the system tray to see that these lines are in it as pe...

Re: Netflix and ... Linux Mint

Hi Poissonchat, I do not have a Netflix account, so I cannot try it. But, many people claim they have it working in Google Chrome, Firefox, etc... I decided to try and give you and anyone else instructions on how to download and compile QtWebFlix for Linux Mint 19.x. I think I included all the requi...

Hi Poissonchat, If you read the other link below, you should be able to play Netflix right now using various browsers without doing anything except turning on (enabling) DRM in the browser settings.

Re: Scan multiple documents

Hi Fabio7891, You might install and try "gscan2pdf" which I think is in the Software Manager or Synaptic Package Manager (SPM). Newer versions (ver.2.3.0) are available and I recommend using their PPA option - see previous post link below. gscan2pdf download | SourceForge.net https://sourceforge.net...

You can certainly try installing its software using Wine to see if that works, but I would think Virtualbox and a version MS Windows would work better for this. the link below has instructions for installing W...

Re: Use PC to pass-through sound

You want to use the PC's "line-in" input jack for this rather than the "mic" input jack. Then you can use the volume control and sound settings (or pulse audio volume control) to control it.
