Re: Is Samba the only way to share files on Lan with Windows?

Apologies - when I say "flavor", I mean whether you're running Cinnamon, XFCE, or MATE. Ulyana is the version (Mint 20) - which is also good to know - but the "flavor" will tell us the default file manager you're using. Nemo (Cinnamon), Thunar (XFCE) and Caja (MATE) each have slightly different func...

Re: Is Samba the only way to share files on Lan with Windows?

Is Samba the only way to share files on Lan with Windows? No, of course not. It's probably the easiest & best-supported, however. But there are certainly alternatives - - you could set up an FTP server on either your Linux or Windows machine, and use an FTP client (FileZilla) to transfer files back ...

Re: Power supply toggles only when system ON

Note: I configure tlp and firewall activate I think your installation of tlp likely has something to do with that. Many modern laptops are designed to "toggle" the battery charging like that in order to maximize the battery's long-term lifespan. There's even a setting in Windows to set your charge/...

Re: No internet and more

@BoDill - I'm glad you were able to get it working! :) Just remember that it's ok not to know everything when it comes to Linux. There is certainly a learning curve to getting it all exactly how you want it working, but it's worth it (for me, anyhow) to know that I'm far more secure than if I were r...

Re: No internet and more

@BoDill - do you know the SSID and wireless password for your wifi network? If so, have you tried to set up that connection by selecting the SSID and typing in the wireless password? Based on what you've posted so far, it appears that your wireless card has been correctly detected and *should* be ca...

Re: No internet and more

It took me awhile to figure out how to do this, since the computer in question does NOT connect to the Internet. I dug up an old thing that plugs into a slot and lets me copy stuff onto it. (I can't believe I just said that; I had to plug in the internet connection in order to get this to work at a...

Re: To partition or not partition?

I had a play with Wine, but it doesn't run the software I need (PV monitoring is the hardest to shift off Windoze). Not sure I looked at VMs. On the theme of my very basic-level IT skills :) , what's the difference between a VM and Wine, what are the pros and cons of VM, will it run any Windows sof...

Re: To partition or not partition?

So exactly what are you asking? Do you need help with getting the Live USB to boot, or are you asking about how to set up a dual-boot system? Or is it both? Dual-booting is not terribly difficult if you use Mint's built-in installer. Yes, it is true that there are some risks to having Windoze and Li...

Re: Casting video from Waterfox / Firefox?

There is a relatively new Firefox extension that may do the trick for you. It is an extension, so not officially supported by Mozilla.... but it's worth a shot?

Re: cleaning up PCs to be donated to my church

Just a couple of points - - 1. Is there a particular reason you'd choose the 32 bit version over the 64 bit? 32 bit has been sunset with the latest Ubuntu (and therefore Mint) release, and the timer is counting down as to how long it'll be supported. it may have better support for *some* older PCs, ...

Re: Need help to rename video-files

I just tried it and it works; the script itself doesn't navigate anywhere, the "find" commands returns the full directory structue..... Using the same names I used before, $ find -iname "*.mp4" > a.txt Correct - - that's the difference. I did not use the "find" command in my bash file suggestions. ...

Re: Need help to rename video-files

You did not read my edit to the previous post. It is due to your directory structure - - the bash file I sent is only intended to work with one level of directories . This is NOT how you have your files stored. As far as how to set your permissions, that is easy. Use the chmod command: chmod -R 755 ...

You realize it would be much easier to help if you more completely explained what you have done? As I stated when I posted those bash files, they are customized with the assumption that your videos were located in /home/vilsen/Videos . Moving the bash file to a different location will do nothing if ...

Re: Need help to rename video-files

Part of your problem is this line: cd -- "/media/mate18/"Elements SE"/ALLFILM/FILM" You have the entire line enclosed in double-quotes... but you also have "Elements SE" enclosed in double-quotes. This is an invalid syntax. There can only be 1 set of double-quotes. As soon as you include that "Eleme...
