Re: Home networking wifi mint 19.2/3

Thank you for your experiment. I found I could ping external IP addresses at one point. I think what was happening was that the DNS servers could not be addresses, or their replies not getting through. If you have any insight on that, it would be most helpful.

Regards

Re: Home networking wifi mint 19.2/3

Thank you for the link. The advice seems rather archaic (dated some years ago) and incomplete. I followed it as best I could, and lost my PC-Laptop connectivity. The link advice seems to take no account of the WiFi IP, nor of firewall rules. My laptop wifi is 192.168.0.102, and I assumed that was th...

Home networking wifi mint 19.2/3

Can someone advise me; my skills are 15 years out-of-date. My cat chewed the wifi dongle on my desktop; my laptop is fine running mint 19.3. The desktop is still on 19.2. Household internet is through a wifi hotspot. I have connected them with an ethernet cable, and wish to access wifi on the laptop...

Re: Steam Civilization V

... I installed the same on my desktop (an NVIDIA card).

I launched Civ V, but the mouse does nothing. I cannot proceed past the first screen after the introductory videos. The mouse moves, but the clicks have no effect.

Any advice??

TIA

Re: Steam Civilization V

In the past few days I have installed LinuxMint on my HP 340 G2 LAPTOP, installed all reasonable updates, installed steam and (today) installed Civ V. When I try to run a vanilla game, the character screen appears with the mouse as a globe; the mouse changes to the classic arrowhead, and then the ga...
