Re: Release date LM 19 KDE flavor

You can install KDE over an install of another desktop version. XFCE is best, I am told, because it is apparently the easiest to remove after you have installed KDE. (Best to only have one desktop environment installed.) Seems like somebody was going to post instructions for installing KDE, and mayb...

Re: recovery

I assume you are wanting to recover accidentally deleted data? Many of us have used TestDisk and/or PhotoRec:

Well, I would not be surprised if the Canonical will sell themselves to Apple and Debian to Google.

Re: Make Windows formatted websites readable in LinuxMint

I used Catfish to search for mht files on my hard drive, and found quite a few of them. I only checked a few, but I was able to open them with the Opera browser. Get it here:

Welcome aboard, Jim! We had a drive-in theater here until fairly recently. I don't miss that as much as I miss the roller skating rink.

Welcome aboard, powerchord84! Yeah, inxi is great, and I suspect you will find a bunch of other things you like about Linux. I used to play lots of powerchords back in the day: '67 Gibson with single humbucker, Fender Bandmaster cranked up loud!

Re: WiFi amplifiers. Good or bad.

Which bandwidth limits are you talking about? For 70 cm and above there is no bandwidth limit other than stay within the ham band, and follow good amateur practices. Some of the HamWAN links in the Puget Sound area reach 300 Mbps. I wouldn't be surprised if there some with higher data rates.

Re: WiFi amplifiers. Good or bad.

People have run wifi connections over 300 kilometers. Not sure about ERP limits here in the US, but there are ham frequencies in that range, so if you run it on one of the ham frequencies, the ERP limits wouldn't apply.

I have seen that one before. Go into the BIOS or UEFI and make sure that Virtualization is enabled.
