Teach me how to enable qname minimisation

I have been using dnscrypt-proxy and protonvpn on Mint 19.3. They both seem to be working fine (some times I have some doubts about DNS and IP leaking...). Problem is, I can't make qname minimisation to work. When I run one of the commands bellow, I get the answer displayed: $ a.b.qnamemin-test.inte...

Re: Can I use external boot and OTP with Luks in Mint?

Another option for encrypting boot is this tutorial by linux22 . Never used myself (I don't even use system encryption, though I do use Veracrypt for some files), so I can't vouch for it. I merely point it out. Thank you. I'll track it down (a lot of things to read and learn). I'll have this thread...

Re: Can I use external boot and OTP with Luks in Mint?

The risk (rare) I am trying to avert is having someone grabbing my notebook, injecting a new boot piece of code onto the boot partition and put the machine back. That would be a very skilled person. Not the average "I just downloaded pentest software and now I'm a 1337 h4x0r" laptop snatching hoodl...

Re: Can I use external boot and OTP with Luks in Mint?

The installer will set up, if you select disk encryption, an encryption LUKS partition with LVM and encrypted swap. It will not encrypt the boot partition. You can also encrypt the boot partition, at least Arch Linux wiki has information on that though I don't immediately know how to apply it to Li...

[SOLVED] Can I use external boot and OTP with Luks in Mint?

I will not do a clean install of Mint 19.3 so I thought it could be a good occasion to have better security. As I see it, security could be stongrer if I could encrypt the whole drive and boot from a pen-drive. It would be still stronger if during boot I had do provide a OTP. If this possible out of...

You can send a donation and that will tell the Devs you appreciate their hard work. Just saying :)
I've already been doing that with my greatest appreciation. But I'd like to put it in words too. As you know well, for the soul public recognition is better fodder than money.

Re: SUCURI does not let me in. Who should I complain to?

Since I imagened the IP could be the reason, I almost travelled around the world searching for an acceptable IP...

I have an external veracrypt drive. I use timeshift to backup my system files (Tara). Nevertheless, no matter what I do, timeshift can't find and use a mounted veracrypt file system (EXT4) at /media/veracrypt1.

Re: Cups and hplip failed. Can't reinstall

I have just solved the problem with a radical measure: I went to synaptics and unsintalled everything the contained "cups" somewhere in the package name. Everything, except for those packages that would entail unstalling most of the system. Then I reinstalled one by one: cups, hplip and a bunch of p...
