Re: sugestion for a good email aplication

Hi kimtieuphuong, It would help to know more about your system setup. If you run " inxi -Fxzd " from the console terminal prompt, highlight the results, copy and paste them back here, that should provide enough information. I would recommend the Thunderbird email client. The Thunderbird email client...

Re: bulk rename with nemo

Hi samiel60, There have been some new good replies to your post ... I forgot to mention that most file managers can rename multiple files by filename, but it is very unusual (uncommon) for most file managers to be able to change multiple files extensions like from ".TTF" to ".ttf". And the suggestio...

Re: File encryption ideas for newbies

Hi "carum carvi", Okay, go into the "Synaptic Package Manager (SPM)", search for "nemo" and install the "nemo-fileroller" plugin along with any other plugins you might like, apply, exit "Synaptic Package Manager (SPM)", restart the FIles (nemo file manager), and you should have the password option. ...

Re: File encryption ideas for newbies

Hi "carum carvi", That's odd that the password option is greyed out (not available), can you send us a screenshot of this? The 7zip archive software packages can be called "p7zip" or whatever, I always install the "full" version of this. Did you check to see if there are "Nemo" file manager plugins ...

Re: File encryption ideas for newbies

Hi "carum carvi" You are welcome from all of us that replied... I therefore still wanna choose to use VeraCrypt software to encrypt single files, because it has windows and menus. VeraCrypt is an excellent encryption solution, but it is a "container" (vault) encryption not the best for encrypting in...

Re: Converting VHS to digital

Hi overkill22, JerryF, and Everyone Else, Although converting or capturing VHS videos may not be as high quality as converting DVD/Blu-ray, it is still very much worth doing to preserve the videos into digital format because the "tape" inside the VHS cassettes will not last. I tried most of the opti...

Re: Trying to install steam.

Hi Xavier321, I do not see anything wrong with the results of the "inxi -Fxzd" console terminal command, so that is a good thing. I do not see any broken packages from your screenshot either. So, I have no idea why you cannot install "Steam". You can try purging it (remove completely) from the "Syna...

Hi overkill22, It definitely helps, but in this case, you buy kind of device that substitute the laptop+software, correct? You do not need a computer (laptop) or software to record the videos from the VHS player or any other video source with the devices I linked to, they record directly to a microS...
