Re: original resolutions gone

Thank you soooo much for your reply. I did know the support for 17 finished, but changed from 18 as it wasn't running so well. The poor old machine still does its upmost and it gets mainly used for the grandchildren when they come to visit (they play games) I actually have Lubuntu 18.04 on this mach...

skype crashes system

I installed the newest version of skype, but every time I access it, it crashes the system. So for the moment I will stay with Skype 4.3 , but it only works with two of my contacts who are also on the old obsolete version. The rest of my contacts can not see me on line, even though I am. And I can n...

delete in Evolution

Would anybody be able to tell me how I can delete individual emails in my rubbish bin on Evolution? At the moment when I delete one email, it does nothing, I can only delete the whole lot at once, Which I find a nuisance .

Re: E-mail provider / E-mail-account ?

A friend in France gave me this one: netcourrier.com
You can set it to you country like netc.fr or netcourrier.com or netcourrier.fr for example
I live in NZ and it works really well, never any spam or rubbish in my mailbox.

Re: my firefox smartphone won't mount

In the meantime I found a solution for putting music on my phone (I took the sd card out of the phone and put it in the computer and could then transfer the music).
So I don't need any help after all.
Have a great day! regards, Johanna
