Re: HDD/SSD setup

Haven't played with it for a while but I have Plex on my server and SWMBO has a set top box that reads it with no real issues. There are some movie formats that her box cannot decode, I shall convert them one day. IIRC It was pretty easy to set up.

Hi lsemmens, This might be a good place to start your quest for replacements for Sketchup...DAMIEN https://alternativeto.net/software/google-sketchup/?platform=linux Thanks, Damien, I am aware of that site, it's just not a priority at this stage.

Re: Windows 10 new install - Are all versions of Windows 10 so intrusive?

Windwoes update was what convinced me to finally ditch Windoze. The only things that were forcing me to hang on was sketchup, a complex werd document and Accsux. I've managed to convert the document, I'm in the process of entering data into a Base database. Once that is all done, I might look at rep...

Re: Mass file copies stall a lot going to USB

When copying large amounts of data, I try to break it down into smaller amounts to copy at a time so that if something does fall over, I can quickly pick up where it left off. However........that does not solve your problem, it just alleviates it. Maybe, something like clonezilla will work for you. ...

Re: Only 12 New Posts Right Now

I think that's the fewest new posts I've ever seen on the forums. I wonder why? Is every one doing so well, or is it because it's 2:30am here on east coast of America? Are there fewer users of Mint now, or things are going so well for the latest systems they are using? At times recently it seems th...

Re: Dyslexia and computers

From my understanding of Dyslexia (and I am only a lay person) but, as has been observed above, some colour filters make life easier for dyslexics. Optometrists can (I believe) test and correct some problems with suitable eyewear.

Re: Is this a touchpad driver issue or a virus? Need help ASAP.

Is it not something as innocuous as a sticky key or some bit of crud that is rolling around under your keyboard that is causing random things to occur?

Re: Data recovery from formated linuxmint

In short NO, the long answers you already have. A good BACKUP strategy is always worthwhile. Saves all sorts of heartache. In over forty years of computing I've only ever needed to rely on backups twice, but if I did not have them, I would guarantee that I'd need them more than that. You have seatbe...

Re: How to reduce boot up time?

The silly question that I would ask is, "Do you really need Veracrypt?" Especially for the OS. Seriously any critical stuff can be encrypted after the file system has loaded either by (my preference) having a dedicated drive or encrypting a folder on your main drive. That said: I do not use such too...

Then all you need do is boot from your live cd/usb and do so. What's the problem?

Re: Create, make your own customize, personalized linux mint?

Clonezilla is a "photocopy" of your computer's system. The beauty of Linux, is that it is so portable that it can be transferred between machines without any real issues. I've even transferred an SSD that was installed in a TOSHIBA INTEL laptop (low powered) to my Server which is Running an AMD quad...

I had a call from the NBN today The very (not so) nice lady from Iraq or Pakistan or some other 'stan, eventually threatened to set the Federal Police onto me.
