Re: Android 9 from Community (AOSP) ROMs...

I wouldn't know. I've never seen that add-on before. But let me put it this way: if Google is involved, I'm staying away from it.

By the way, the reviews don't look great. I don't think this is safe: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... r/reviews/

Re: Android 9 from Community (AOSP) ROMs...

I'm sorry to hear things did not work out for you! As I may or may not have told you, I took the easy way out by acquiring a phone with LineageOS pre-installed (Oneplus One). It's working flawlessly. I have switched off everything Google, which limits the number of apps I can download because I can'...

I'm going to have to format it if I want to use it on the Linux machine. Isn't that going to erase everything? That defeats the purpose.
Not really, as it's a one-time thing. But yes, it WILL erase everything that is currently on the drive.

I don't use TImeshift in Mint 19.1 because for me, I find it confusing.
Boom! And there we have it.
You are not alone in that! But surely the interface can be improved?

Yesterday I bought CanoScan LiDE 300. "Simple Scan" says "No scanners detected" although the scanner has been detected on guest Windows.
Well, go on and start a topic about it, if you're looking to get help.

Why would you reinstall Windows, when your mom says she doesn't trust it anymore? Can she switch full-time to Mint?

Re: Firefox upgrade?

And do you regularly apply updates on that machine? I don't think it has prompted me, so no. I jsut installed it & went, so whatever the default settings for the update manager are? The default settings include the concept that the user updates their system whenever there are updates being offered....

Re: Can I download a Mac or Windows font? If yes, how?

You can download any TTF font; after downloading it, doubleclick and it should open in the Font Viewer, which has a button marked Install. I haven't checked what was inside the .zip file offered on that site but if it's TTF, it should be fine. Since it's a .zip, you'll want to extract it first, then...

Re: Breaking: Update Manager in 19.2 will no longer feature a protective level system

I'm okay with this, but then Timeshift becomes much more central to Mint than it already is, and so it will really need a better interface and defaults. As it is, I can easily see it scaring newcomers away... some of them will think 'You know what, never mind all that... I'm hopefully never going to...

Re: Scanning
