Re: My Opinion

wps files as in WPS Office? http://wps-community.org/downloads Or wps as in the old Microsoft Works format? I'm not sure what opens that these days, haven't seen one of those in many many years. Like in Microsoft Works 9. I started using it years ago and liked the processor. I don't like Word, so I...

I have Linux Mint Mate x64 installed on one of my desktops. I installed Opera but every time I open Opera I have to insert my password to open Opera. I have another computer with Linux Mint Cinnamon installed with Opera installed in it and I don't have to use a password to open Opera. Anyone know is...

Re: My Opinion

Sorry if I raised some ire about my "GUI' comment. It was said tongue in cheek because of the comments I have read about Linux's being consumer unfriendly because of the command line "necessity". Though, IMO, Linux is a bit more demanding in the learning curve, I really find little difference in Win...

Updates

Hope I put this in the right place. A question, I am running Linux Mint 18.3 x64 and when I get updates there are those that have a 1,2,3 or 4 beside the update. The ones with 1 or 2 are checked the others are not. So, is it necessary or needed that the updates with a 3 or 4 beside them be installed...

Re: Cannot play videos

Hi "kemperhills", I just read your post and the good replies to it. Here are my thoughts on this as well. It would help to know more about your system setup. If you run " inxi -Fxzd " from the console terminal prompt, highlight the results, copy and paste them back here, that should provide enough ...

Re: Cannot play videos

It sounds like you're playing a video on some website? Do videos work on https://www.youtube.com/ or do you get the same error there? If it works fine there, can you share a link to a video that doesn't work for you (if it is safe to share here). Yes, I can play youtube videos. The videos I couldn'...

Re: Linux Mint 17.2 very slow.

Just wanted to revisit this thread one last time and tell the forum that I downloaded Linux Mint 18.1 Cinnamon x64 and installed it on the computer. When first installed it was slow and laggardy like 17.2 was. I kept doing things I read and finally 18.1 started working and now works great. Don't ask...

I have a Dell Inspiron 1300 with a Pentium M processor. After several hours and several articles I got the "forcepae" to work and loaded Kubuntu 15.04.3 and now the wireless card in the computer won't work. As this is an older laptop that will run W7 but is slow because hardware acceleration doesn't...

Re: Linux Ultimate Edition 5.4

Ultimate Edition is from the maker of Ultamatix. :shock: I'm trying to refrain from invective about this, but I *strongly* advise to give everything even remotely related to that "developer", a wide berth. Like a galaxy or two. Pjotr, may I ask why you don't like what you referred to :D . Is someth...
