Installation latest version into Linux Mint:

sudo apt install bomi
Did you even try it? Running that just tells you Xenial is not supported.

I did, but never found anything, hence why I am asking.

Bomi

Has anyone been able to get Bomi working with LM18? If so how? I tried to use the Unbuntu PPA, but it says it is not supported.

Re: Transfering Files

Does scp work for transferring out of the box, or do I have to set something else up to get it to work? What is the best way to go about transferring a lot of fairly large folders and files from one Mint PC to another on the same network as a one time thing? What is the approximate total transfer si...

On Windows, it's always the same: Google, Download, Open, Next*

Re: This is when you realize how far Linux has come...

Yes, I do. The only browsers that still support it are internet explorer or safari. Meaning that every time I need to use that program, I have to boot windows. Firefox supports Silverlight in Windows (haven't tried in Linux). It partially supports it. Same with chrome. However, the simulators only ...

It's good enough to use as your daily OS. It's still not good enough to completely replace Windows for anyone other than the most casual of PC users (and maybe programmers). For everyone else, we still live in a dual boot world. Sadly, the people Linux would work best for (casual users) would not e...

I don't know about laws in the rest of the world, but here in the U.S. of A. they MUST obtain a warrant to do some of the things that are being discussed here. They absolutely cannot just "turn over" your personal information to authorities. They would be not only liable to lawsuits, but also crimi...

Re: Installing SW - harder in Linux than Windows?

Well, the updates depend on the distro, I suppose. By "unwieldy" I mean that it feels like they added a little bit of security here, and a little bit there, and so on. Every Windows I've ever experimented with (from 95 onwards) has had this feel to me. There again, UAC has only been around since Vi...

Re: Installing SW - harder in Linux than Windows?

Like I said, that is how Windows is primarily effected by viruses as well. So I guess, Windows getting viruses isn't its fault either. Use the tool correctly or don't use it at all! Right? BTW, it still sort of is Linux's fault for not forcing best practices and automatic updates by default, but wh...
