Re: 11-yr-old, single-core laptop

I have an old 1000 MHz, single core AMD (Duron, I think) desktop with 768 MB RAM that had Win98 on it when I got it. antiX runs surprisingly well on it. It won't stream videos online, but if I download them with youtube-dl or other downloader, they will play off the hard drive OK. LXLE will run on p...

Re: Zoom video conferencing

Zoom works fine on Linux. I have attended many online meetings and webinars using Zoom. And just the other day, created my first Zoom meeting from my Android phone and ran it from the phone in a park. The other one that's popular is Maestro, but I have never been able to get it to work on the comput...

Re: Screen capture suggestions please

If all you want it screenshots, there should be a screenshot tool in the Accessories folder. If you want to record your screen with audio, SimpleScreenRecorder.

Re: "The 'grub-efi-amd64-signed package' failed to install into /target/."

You will want to allocate at least 10 GB to install Mint. 500 MB is not going to do it.

Re: hi there

Does any of you think (like my friends) that my pc is just garbage? ! I'm just quoting one of my friends: "buy a new laptop". If I understand what you said (your computer is 4 years old?), then no, I doubt that it is garbage, and I think that Linux Mint will run on it just fine. My home computer is...

Re: how to do "picture-in-picture" in Mint?

Thanks for the tips! I will give them a try. Except if I was going to glue a phone to my monitor, it would not be an Apple phone, it would be an Android device.

Re: Hey there!

1. Stick with it. You may have a few little quirks to iron out, but you are going to love it. 2. Don't spend forever trying to figure things out by yourself. If you can't figure it out in a few hours, ask on the forums. That's what the forums are here for, and there are some very knowledgeable peopl...

Re: Excited for 19.x

I believe the release dates for Linux Mint are usually "when it's ready." Yes, there are approximate dates that they release, but when it comes down to it, it's usually "when it's ready."

What I suggested was impossible to do: "if you forget a command, enter it backwards".
Yes, I know it is. But that wouldn't stop some people from trying it.

how to do "picture-in-picture" in Mint?

Some televisions have a "picture-in-picture" feature, where you can have most of the screen taken up by one channel, and use a corner of the screen to show what's on another channel. I would like to do something like that on my computer. I often have music from Youtube playing while doing other thin...

Re: How to install an ios app on a non-apple product?

There is some information found on the web about how to do that. There is apparently an iPad emulator that runs on Windows and Linux: https://ipadian.net/ And apparently somebody has been working on iEmu, but I couldn't find very much about it: http://www.shoutpedia.com/iemu-project-to-run-ios-apps-...

Re: Code running during reboot

If you forget exactly what command you gave, you can cancel-out what it by entering it again, but with the letters reversed. I think Flemur is trying to be funny. But we do have a rule here about giving people advice or code that could be dangerous. Probably most commands backwards would do nothing...

I also use the Compose key method. I know it works on Cinnamon and XFCE, but I have never tried it on the other desktop environments.

Re: No space left on device

davidmint01, nobody here can make you change over to a better, more secure operating system. But, if you do want to try again at some point, send me a message and I can walk you through it over the phone/text/email/whatever. Like a lot of others here, I just hate to see anybody using Windows!
