Re: EU threatens code sharing (and therefore Linux software development)

Could someone provide a link to a place with actual information about what's going on/what the proposal is/etc, instead of jumping right to trying to get me to sign something?

Re: How to downgrade flash

Turns out all I needed to do was search using the term "archived" - which brings up this page. Swapped in version 25.0.0.171 and it's back to working :)

How to downgrade flash

I recently upgraded my version of flash, and now videos on Crunchyroll no longer have any sound. How do I downgrade back to the previous version of flash? I've searched, and all I found was a suggestion to use synaptic to downgrade to a previous version, however synaptic only lists one version as be...

Re: State of gaming optimization

Vulkan isn't just an AMD thing. It is based largely on AMD's Mantle, but it has been picked up and supported by a number of other companies - Google is going to be using Vulkan on Android, Nvidia is going to support Vulkan, and even the Nintendo Switch has been certified as Vulkan compliant(though t...

Re: Encrypted e-mail discussion

I've been using Tutanota for several months now. I had attempted to look at protonmail as well, but at the time for whatever reason their website was completely broken in Firefox(seems to work fine now though).

Re: 18.1 Disappearing Desktop Icons

I have the same problem with a triple monitor setup. All are connected to a GTX 1060 via DisplayPort, and the icons on the primary monitor do not show up on login, but the icons on the non-primary monitors do show up. This is happening on 18.1 after upgrading, and did not occur on 18.

Re: Are we too complacent about security?

@"Are we too complacent": I think "complacent" isn't really the right word. All things being equal, if given a simple choice of "more secure" vs "less secure", I think most people would choose to be more secure. There are a few real problems though: 1) Most people either aren't given the choice or, ...

Re: Linux Mint gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad & a Fedora Exploit

A couple corrections: The situation is much less dangerous on Ubuntu / Linux Mint, even if you have added gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad to your systems. The opposite is true, actually. Ubuntu, even in 16.04, has some problems: Missing ASLR on many binaries, including security sensitive ones: file /usr/l...

I see lots of people complaining about Skylake being so thin that it's hard to clamp them down without bending them.

Were you replying to me? That xeon chip is Haswell, not Skylake.

Re: Anyone running Mint on Modern hardware?

My part list.

Worked perfectly with EFI boot from the NVMe 950 Pro. The only problem was the 1060 card, which needed a more up-to-date driver than was available in the official repositories. Ended up using 367.44 from here.

Re: Custom syntax highlighting in xedit

Do you mean Linux Mint's xed or X11's xedit? When initially discussing the idea for X-Apps it was named as Xedit but it's called xed now. For xedit I don't know. xed just uses libgtksourceview 3.0, same as gedit and other Gnome based text editors that need syntax highlighting. lang files are in /us...

Custom syntax highlighting in xedit

How do I add syntax highlighting for a language in Xedit? I had a file that I used previously in Gedit, but I can't find any information on whether or not Xedit need the file in the same place or a different one, and if the format of the .lang file is the same or has changed.

Re: Why maintainers matter

I mean, I understand the arguments being made, but unless both snaps and flatpaks completely bomb and are used by almost nobody, it doesn't really matter a whole lot does it?
