Re: Specially Donated Linux Computers

I also collect old computers, install Linux on them, and give them away to people who need one. If I were donating to veterans, I wouldn't care what kind of discharge they had. If they need a computer, I will give it to them.

didn't know older kernels were available offline via the Update Manager.
They aren't. But installing a new kernel doesn't uninstall your old kernel. So all you have to do is boot to your old kernel, and remove the new kernel that isn't working for you.

Re: Installing VirtualBox

they are looking for user-friendly, easy to use software and not complicated software which requires esoteric line commands and the memorization of arcane switches. I have no clue what you are talking about. Two years ago, a brother and a sister of mine asked me to install Linux on their computers,...

Re: RealtimeKit default installation in Linuxmint 18.3

Apparently it is installed by default. I looked a 18.3 Cinnamon and 18.3 XFCE, and it is there in both of them. It is also in 17.3 XFCE. No idea whether it can be removed or not, but when you go to remove a package, it should tell you what else the remove will do.

Re: WHITE RABBIT: And when it comes to that fantastic bit where the rabbit bites its own head off

Nice. I have no idea why they marked it age-restricted. Maybe because it's a bit about drugs ;) Is it? As I recall Alice shrinks after drinking a potion labeled "drink me" and grows after eating apiece of cake labeled "eat me." Later, the caterpillar tells Alice that eating from one side of the mus...

Apple Linux support is poor and changeable.
And deliberately so. Apple wants you to buy more of their expensive stuff, not use it with anybody else's stuff.

Re: LM Going Super Slow

You keep saying things like "Linux can't ... " In fact, Linux can do just about anything you want it to do. Just because you don't yet know how to do it, that does not mean that it can't be done. For example, I have done a dual boot with LInux Mint and Win7 on several computers that are years older ...

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...

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.

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

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.
