Re: Ned 1 , 2 en 3 terugkijken lukt niet in browser(s)

Beste duckduckgo66, helemaal aan het begin van de installatie wordt er gevraagd of je niet-opensource software wil installeren. Als je deze vraag over het hoofd gezien hebt, is het misschien nuttig om in het "Programmabeheer" het woord "codec" in te tikken. Er verschijn dan een hele lijst codecs. Bi...

Beste duckduckgo66,

heb je in de algemene instellingen van Firefox aangegeven dat het afspelen van DRM inhoud is toegestaan?

Zo niet, zetdan het vinkje en probeer het nog eens.

Re: Amiketo unusable in Linux Mint 19 and 20 (to type esperanto letters)

Derar Solis,

Search for "eurkey.deb" and install it. All these special characters will be at hand in whatever program you use.

Re: How to open .pbd file (Backup drive by EaseUS soft)

Dear Abdullah, this is an old trick of software vendors: deliver the service in a format that is proprietary and that can only be read with their own program.

Dear Kobalt, at the introduction of Timshift I got the same problem. Since then I remove Timeshift at every new installation. I can understand that such a program is useful for Windows. For Linux Mint it is quite superfluous. Just make a backup on an external hard drives regularly of your data. The ...

On the login screen you can see what characterset you are using. Is it the same as the one you installed with? If not, can you choose the original one?
