Re: opera does not play html5 video in lmde 3.

Sorry forgot to add that you would need to make the script executable first. Right-click on the script you have downloaded (it should be in your home directory) and choose "properties". Under "Permissions" tab, check the box "Allow this file to run as a program". Now open a terminal and run the com...

Re: opera does not play html5 video in lmde 3.

In $HOME/local, there is no .lib folder. When I run the script I get this: rg@rg-G75VW ~ $ wget https://gist.githubusercontent.com/ruario/bec42d156d30affef655/raw/53bb6a1fd298d114355453f6f19ae188c22e2e9c/latest-proprietary-media.sh --2019-01-10 15:45:37-- https://gist.githubusercontent.com/ruario/be...

Re: FreeCAD For Machinery and Shop Equipment [SOLVED]

I've been fiddling with FreeCAD but I haven't found any instructions or decent tutorials so it's all hit or miss.

I'm using 18.3 Cinnamon, and FreeCAD is available in Software Manager.
Thanks. I have installed it already. Now it's a matter of getting used to how it works.

Re: FreeCAD For Machinery and Shop Equipment [SOLVED]

Thanks for the additional help, here. I'm still going over various options offered already. What have you been using? This might give us a clue as to the most appropriate tool for the job. I've been a fan of SketchUp for windwoes and have yet to find a decent alternative in Linux. Freecad seems ok f...

Re: FreeCAD For Machinery and Shop Equipment

Thanks for the reply, Xenopeek. Good to know FreeCAD iosn't a CAD program. That helps a lot. The LinuxCNC will be useful in the future when I get a CNC machine going. The list of CAD programs is really useful. I'll check all of those they list to see which is most suitable for my needs. Many thanks....

I need a good CAD program that will work in Linux Mint 18.3 64-bit. This will be used for drawings and blueprints for machinery and other items from angle iron, square tubing and sheet metal. Also it will be needed for wooden assemblies like a workbench or other items made from 2x4 or 2x6 framing an...

Re: Low Disk Space on "filesystem.root"

Thanks, Pjotr. That did the trick. Just cleaning the cache and removing Asian fonts was enough to not get the pop-up. I still went ahead and removed 24 of the redundant kernels, leaving 2 plus the active one. I can see I'll have to do the same with my main installation, too.

Many thanks for the help.

Re: Get iphone 7 Plus Photos Into Cinnamon 18.1

Just a quick update here. I installed Feem v4 on both and promptly transferred a photo from the laptop to the iphone. Slick as can be. I expect the same from the phone to the laptop. I haven't a clue how to get a photo from the iphone photo folder(s) into the chat window in Feem but it's my wife's p...

Well, then thanks for finding what I didn't. It's nice to have everything working again. I'll include that driver in my future installations of Mint.

Re: Printer Stopped Working in Cinnamon 18.3

Everything works, now. I installed the Canon driver. That must be new. They didn't support Linux when I got the printer a year ago. That's why I got TurboPrint. I just tested it on a file that wouldn't print properly a year ago and it did fine. I suspect that clearing the stuck print job may have he...
