Re: Trimming mp4

I know this has been marked solved by the OP, but I've just been investigating the same question and found this thread, so I'm updating it for latecomers like me. Video cutters are designed to simply cut pieces of video between keyframes without having to re-encode them. LosslessCut LosslessCut aims...

Re: Access Denied - Sucuri Website Firewall

As per the op, this issue occurs sometimes when trying to access linuxmint.com, so I'd call it a website issue, not just a forum issue. I agree with @antikythera that this isn't a networking problem with Linux Mint itself, but I couldn't find a "website issues" category. Also since there d...

Re: Access Denied - Sucuri Website Firewall

It's Sucuri thinking you're a bot. As to why, they would have to investigate the block. Does this behavior continue? Thanks, that is how I interpreted it as well. But I wasn't sure about the "If you are the site owner (or you manage this site), please whitelist your IP" part. The behaviou...

There's at least one user of Mint that I know of. Given that I have at least 5 computers, all running mint, I can confirm 5 users. ;)
Yeah, but in my home there are 4 users sharing one computer, so that probably balances it out a bit

Re: How to install Waterfox in 5 simple steps

Beside that, I wouldn't recommend Waterfox, since it was sold to some spam-distributor Effectively waterfox was sold to System1 on 02/14/2020: https://www.waterfox.net/blog/waterfox-has-joined-system1/ bad, bad, bad... Why is it bad? As Alex said on his blog System1 has been to Waterfox a search sy...

Re: Firefox loses 250 employees - will development quality go down?

I switched to waterfox when firefox dropped support for some tampermonkey scripts I use. I've been very happy with it. I use the classic version for the site with my scripts and the current version for most others. sudo sh -c "echo 'deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/hawkeye116...

Re: Grub Update trouble RESOLVED

Question though, If I may: when you ran the "Boot Repair" program did it provide good control over what you're doing ? Grub seems to be like a virus: it wants to install itself on every disc it can find. I hadn't used it before and I didn't find it explained what it was doing very well, b...

Re: Grub Update trouble RESOLVED

Awesome there is a fixed version now available. I ended up getting my system booting again by loading from a thumbdrive and running boot repair. Sadly that was the third suggested solution I found, so I wasted a lot of time unsuccessfully trying the first two methods. Also the last few years I have ...

Everything is up-to-date and I haven't made any changes recently. I've been looking around for how-to's on diagnosing causes for thi...

Re: Mint 19 does not properly configure Brother printer

I have a similar problem with the HL-1210W. The default foomatic driver with mint 17&18 was horrible and put black squares under all the descenders, but I was always able to work around it by downloading the official drivers from brother. Now I have updated to mint 19 my printer wont print at al...

Re: [solved] LM19: No symbol table. Press any key to continue

I wonder if its because I created a separate /boot partition? I got in the habit of doing that when I had multi OS accessing a common data partition. Now everybody in my house uses mint the /boot is not really needed.
