Re: How to read obfuscated PDFs?

Have you tried Mint 18.1 to see if it is still an issue. Sometimes issues creep in that are fixed either by an update or in the next release....

Indeed, it does sound a bit fishy to me, also.

Re: Who’s Behind the Gmail Phishing Attack?

I didn't get this but the number of spam e-mails I get with my Gmail account has climbed rapidly in recent months. About my car being towed away, Obama care, Walmart (I am in the UK), exotic ladies, etc! I get fed up having to delete this carp!

Making MS HTML Compatable

I have been passed some HTML documents for inclusion in my application so the User can view them at run time. However they are not rendered correctly in Firefox with issues like single line titles wrapping over two lines, and text and images overlaying each other in a fairly random manner. Is there ...

Re: Mysql/mysqli

The MySQL extension was deprecated with PHP5.5 whilst the MySQLi extension was introduced with PHP5. I imagine you installed WAMP.Did you do this via the Package Manager. Installing in other ways may lead to dependency problems!

Can a Windows machine see/format the drive? If not it has probably failed in some away!

Re: Benefits of Mint 18 over Windows 10

And then, there are the work group collaboration suites -- which abound in Windows, but are scarce in Linux. In my last gig we primarily used Linux but used Office 365 as most people were remote working most of the time.The ability to do things like edit documents without endless-e-mails and passin...

Re: Proplem with Brother HL1212w printing

We had a lot of problems until we settled on HP printers as HP kit just seems better supported. The company also has one of those large print/fax/scan printers that weigh as much as a small person but we print to that via a Windows server - direct from Mint seemed an insurmountable problem! :( Apolo...

Re: Benefits of Mint 18 over Windows 10

Where I am we use both. Mint is used for all the main areas of activity - development, processing data (utilise MySQL) and support. However, we also have a Windows server and a number of Windows PCs. We find we have less issues with Word, Excel and other MS Office packages than Libre Office although...

Web Framework For Use With Mint, Python and NoSQL

About a year ago I looked at frameworks for use with Mint, Python and MySQL. After looking at Flask and Django I settled on Django as there were issues with Flask. This was more medium term than short term and in the interim an executive decision has been taken to use NoSQL (MongoDB). AS a three dec...

Re: Large CPU spikes when charger plugged in.

Strange indeed! I have had issues with the system appearing to slow down when on battery power alone (around 30% and below). However does make me wonder if a fault has developed in your charging circuitry.

I realise that TeamViewer is not within the Package Manager but this is not a problem. However I was unable to get control of a remote machine yesterday as it had been upgraded to TeamViewer 12. So I decided to upgrade my Mint 17.3 laptop and ended up with broken dependencies. Once I had fixed this ...
