Re: Are Cryptocurrencies the Future or Just Another Bandwagon Sheeple are Jumping on?

Lol! I can't even get my own kids (ages 28-33) to care about privacy. They're convinced if you have "nothing to hide" then it doesn't matter. “Over the last 16 months, as I've debated this issue around the world, every single time somebody has said to me, ‘I don't really worry about invasions of pr...

Re: Grub Customizer or no Grub Customizer?

I see one of the threads pbear linked to was mine asking how to get rid of it. I never did solve that problem, just worked around it and put up with it until it was time to upgrade to a newer version. I used to think Grub Customizer was great, and it is, right up until you need to do something that ...

Re: Progress Report

Glad you are enjoying Linux, TheOmniad-2020! At one time I was collecting comments from people who had just moved to Linux, and only two of the usual comments are missing from your report: 1) "I should have done this years ago!" and, 2) "Why doesn't everybody use Linux?" I moved to Linux 18 years ag...

Re: Linux Mint Newbie.

Welcome aboard, Jonathan! One caution about using information you find with Google: there are a lot of different versions of Linux, and what works for one version won't necessarily work for another. But as long as you stick to stuff that is intended for Mint or Ubuntu, you should be fine.

Re: Greetings everyone

Welcome aboard, pscheimann! Thank you for your work to give Mint computers to people who don't have them. I do that now and then, but haven't had much time for that lately and haven't been offered any old computers lately. Keep up the good work!

Re: Basic Audio Recorder.

Another vote for Audacity. Quite simple to use for most things, yet powerful enough to do the complicated stuff, too.

Re: How to record microphone + "what I hear" from speakers?

You can probably do that with Audacity, and if not, add JACK, the Jack Audio Connection Kit. I haven't used it in a while, and it took some getting used to when I did use it, but it will pretty much route any audio from anywhere in your computer to anywhere else in your computer.

Re: Can't mount USB/other drives after upgrade of kernel

Like any software, kernels can have "regressions" in them. Go back to the old kernel, or try a newer one.

Re: Keepass2 or KeepassXC?

I use KeepassXC. When I decided to use a password safe, I went to most of the sites you mentioned, and several others, and KeePassXC seemed to be the best choice and the most highly recommended.

Re: Did you expect that you'll use Linux?!

I expected that I would be using something other than Microsoft OSes as soon as I found out there was such a thing. I hated Microsoft back in the DOS days, before Windows was released. A friend told me about Linux in 2002, and it was goodbye, Microsoft!
