Add SRM (Secure Remove) to Nemo menu

After adding SRM to the Nemo menu I noticed that there were already instructions in the forum for adding secure delete but I figured I'd go ahead and share how I added SRM in the event anyone is interested. Just please be careful if you do this because SRM isn't going to ask you to confirm that you ...

Re: Fed up with Mint

I usually use Unetbootin but sometimes it just doesn't work and when that happens I'll use Rufus. Usually one of the two will do the trick.

Re: Swap partition on an SSD

Lots of good information in the SSD how to optimize write up however there were a few things that I wasn't too sure about. The first being fstrim. fstrim runs weekly on Mint and in the optimize how to it says to run it at boot but the fstrim man page says that running fstrim too frequently might neg...

Re: Swap partition on an SSD

Or when you install LM 64bit just use the "encrypt home" option and it will create the swap file but it won't mount. :) I didn't even notice swap wasn't working until I ran top a few days after my install.

Re: Swap partition on an SSD

I wouldn't worry about it too much. Most machines have enough ram these days that there's probably not much going on with the swap file anyway. I've got 6gb ram and I run top ever now and then to see what's going on while I'm doing graphics work and have not even noticed any swap being used. You're ...

Re: Kernel 4.0.0 on Linux Mint 17.1

Didn't work out so well for me. The lousy Broadcom wifi card wouldn't load. I didn't bother trying to fix it or do any troubleshooting because I'm at work....just rolled back to 3.19.8 :)

It did however give me a chance to test my 3.19.8 Clonezilla image....nice to know that it worked.

Re: Kernel 4.0.0 on Linux Mint 17.1

Sweet! I'm running 3.19.8 right now with no issues. I've already downloaded 4.0.4 but have not yet installed it but after reading this I might give it a shot after making a Clonezilla image of what I've got right now.

Re: Windows Phone 8 - Nokia Lumia

I've got a Nokia 635 running 8.1. Connected it to my machine running 17.1 this morning and had no problem. It automatically mounted both the internal storage and the micro sd card. I can copy files, delete files and place files onto both storage areas of the phone. gvsf-backends is installed however...

Hello from Texas.

I've been out of the Linux scene for a while but after purchasing a Windows 8.1 tablet I decided that it's time to revisit Linux and start to get away from that MS stuff which is doable for me because I mostly use GIMP to perform photo restorations and testdisk for data recovery. Running Linux Mint ...
