Re: apt upgrade can't find some ip addresses

Go into Software sources & change the Mirror from evowise to anything else, then try again.
evowise always shows as my quickest source but I never chose it (chose the next quickest that is more local with me) as I have heard of others, in the past, say that they have had issues connecting to it..

Re: Windows 10 VM

Re: Using search in LM forums is very frustrating.

Strangely, the 2 Google formats actually produce a different result for me..

Using the search phrase VirtualBox first gave me 9,910 results.
Using it after the site name gave me 11,100 results. :D

Calibre 5.2 on my VirtualBox Mint 20.0 Cinnamon is working perfectly.
All updates up to date.
Have you tried launching it from the Terminal. It will usually give helpful reasons why it cannot start there..

Re: Windows 10 VM

I think that you are adding a LOT of complication into the situation by trying to link a Windows installation to Mint via VirtualBox. I do both Dual Boot Windows 10 & Mint 19.3 and a Windows 10 guest within Mint 19.3. Both work flawlessly & have advantages & disadvantages. However I am struggling to...

Re: Windows 10 VM

Ah OK.
Not something that I have ever done, but I guess that the secret is in this part of the instructions..

How is that going wrong??

p.s. I guess having Grub/not having Grub is a bit of an irrelevance to it working, just another step if you do.

Re: Windows 10 VM

You seem to have come across a set of overly complicated instructions there!! You certainly have no need for Grub on the virtualbox Windows guest. If you have your original Windows Disk (or the ISO) then this is a far easier set of instructions to follow.. https://itsfoss.com/install-windows-10-virt...

Re: Best Anti-malware?

If you are still worried about security then do as Schultz suggested earlier & look at using Firejail.

If you have a decent CPU & plenty of memory on your pc then you could also look at installing Windows as a no internet connected VirtualBox guest.
