Just curious, does Bob turn it on?
Is that a reference to some movie or something? Yes, he turns it on.

Re: Difficulty running a 64 bit o.s. on oracle virtualbox.

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

Re: I wonder - stay with Windows - switch to Linux Mint?

You worry too much. In Linux, there is a Menu button in the lower left corner of the screen. Click it, and a menu pops up showing the applications you have installed. Click on one of them, and away you go. That's it. I have been using Linux for 16 years. I started out dualbooting. I would work in Li...

Re: How to install Linux?

Sorry. I am 39. So am I. Well, 39 and some months , as some comedian used to say. Can't remember which comedian, but I think he said it right up until he died in his 70s or 80s. Welcome to the Mint forums, momoftwogirls! If you have more questions, don't hesitate to ask. That's what we're here for!

Better to write in English
Omong kosong.
No idea what it means
It means nonsense. It is perfectly acceptable for people to use Indonesian in the Mint Indonesian forum. So, as catweazel said, Omong kosong.

I have also used Clonezilla. It's not real user friendly, but it does the job.

Re: How do you go about search for APC or UPS

Yeah, the forums search function isn't good for that. I often use something like these: site:forums.linuxmint.com APC or site:forums.linuxmint.com UPS I know that works if your search engine is Google, Startpage, or DuckDuckGo, and I would assume it works with other search engines, too.

you could also try using the Mate version of LinuxMint, rather than that Cinnamon version.
Or XFCE.

Re: From Chromebooks to Mint

Welcome aboard, Lord Smedley! it drives me CRAZY that on Chromebooks and in Linux there's no convenient set of keystrokes for em dashes and ellipsis. You mean like … and – and — ? I use the Compose Key method. How to set it up may depend upon which desktop environment you use. If these links don't h...

Like I mentioned, it didn't install.
Oops, I missed that. Maybe I will try it in the next day or two. I have been using it in Mint 17.x and 18.x, and I'm planning to move to Mint 19 soon, so I guess I'm going to have to figure it out sooner or later.

Re: VNC for Mint 19

Probably the easiest way to do it is install Teamviewer. It's not open source, but it is free for private use, and I have seen many others here on the forums recommend it. I messed with something else a few years ago to connect to my Raspberry Pi. I think it was xtightvnc, but I could be remembering...

Welcome aboard, Vicente! Wow, you believe in jumping in headfirst to the deep end of the pool, don't you! I like your attitude!

Re: Any music producers out there using Linux DAW's????

Jack server runs on your computer. It allows you to route audio and MIDI from any piece of hardware or software on your computer to any other piece of hardware or software. I played with it maybe 5 or more years ago, and while it did take a little fussing to get going, it worked great for me. Not do...
