Re: AESCrypt and Nemo

Hi dave61430, I did not realize that aescrypt was a stand-alone application creating .aes files versus AES encryption available in other archive apps. Once I downloaded and installed aescrypt, I could right-click any file and "open with" aescrypt to create (encrypt) .aes files or decrypt (...

Hi dave61430, Install the p7zip-full package from the "Synaptic Package Manager (SPM)", logout and back in or restart, then you should be able to right-click in Nemo and create an archive, compress, with 7z with AES encryption. If you want to use the Encryption option in Nemo, you will nee...

Re: Wiping a computer clean before donation

Hi cecilieaux, +1 for xenopeek's comments. I would add to it if your computer has an SSDrive, then after running Dban, boot up to Linux Mint's installation on a USB stick or DVD and run "fstrim" before installing a new fresh copy of Linux Mint. A much faster method is by using the Linux hd...
