I can't find nautilus cd burner. gnomebaker don't work. brasero don't work. I miss k3b burning program. I can go back to centos 5 and use k3b or other linux distro's that have k3b. :( The good news for you is that if you are running Linux Mint 17.x or Linux Mint 18.x, k3b is right there in the soft...

Re: LinuxMint is less safe than Windows (for newbies)

To the OP, I am a very big Windows fan so I was quite curious when I read your post. I did some investigating in order to find out exactly where this WARNING was and I found things to be quite the opposite of what you reported. Please read the following link to understand how difficult it is to crea...

Re: LinuxMint is less safe than Windows (for newbies)

I hope that the OP posts back into this thread because since he has started this thread I have performed two fresh installs of different Windows systems and I have not seen any such warning that the OP claims exists.

Re: LinuxMint is less safe than Windows (for newbies)

LinuxMint is less safe than Windows for newbies, because LinuxMint does NOT warn during or after install that one has to create a standard user account. Windows DOES warn. And Windows DOES offer a menu to create a standard user account. Everything that DOES make LinuxMint safe is the fact that you ...

Re: What tasks aren't suiteable for Virtual Machines

I've been wondering about what tasks are unlikely to work properly when using a virtual machine in Linux Mint 18.3. Can someone tell me if there are any (types of) applications that seem particulary problematic or just flat out don't work as they should (or that need a incredible amount of RAM - i....

Re: What tasks aren't suiteable for Virtual Machines

Audio/video tasks might not work to well. Improper privileges and not enough resources are the main reasons why. You can set up the privileges easy enough, but the resources are physical.

Re: Mint 18.2 and audio hi fi

Oh yeah, I will take this opportunity to say that the 2009 Beatles remasters suck. They are way too loud, distorted and bassey. If anybody is interested, the 1987 Beatles CDs sound 1,000 times better.

Re: Mint 18.2 and audio hi fi

I have to agree about the blind tests. Blind tests are actually the most "telling" of all of the ways to be able to judge musical qualities. If you can not tell the difference between different musical sources while blind, then the whole thing is just not for you. It is just that simple.

Re: Will Linux require BIOS updates for Meltdown/Spectre like MS Win?

Thank you for the responses. Is there a good source indicating that computers running linux will need the BIOS/UEFI update too? I'm hoping that using the processor microcode updates in linux will make the BIOS updates unnecessary for linux computers. With the processor microcode we linux users get ...
