Re: Over 1 Billion Login Credentials Leaked

Have I Been Pwned is supposed to be legit. I've seen it recommended by people and other sites that are legit. Of course, there's always a risk I suppose.

App that gives details about crashes

I search for this but couldn't find anything. Also looked at the site https://alternativeto.net/ and no luck there also. I'm looking for a Linux equivalent to AppCrashView. It's a small, simple utility for Windows that displays the details of all application crashes in the system. Any such thing in ...

Re: Password to log in here...

A passphrase would be easier to remember. How about something like: Iliketoeat2eggs&toastforbreakfast (no this is not my password). It is at least 32 characters, contains a number, a capital, and a symbol. It took me about 10 seconds to think of it. Not hard to think of, or to remember. There's a lo...

Re: Software For Converting MP3's To AAC's

There's an app called "Sound Converter" from the repos. Not sure if there is a way to make it convert to aac as I don't see that option available, though. There's also WinFF, but I've never used it.

Re: Linux Mint Very Slow

As already has been said, either add more memory, or switch to Xfce (or Mate).

It doesn't have to DMZ black, any option other than default allows you to use the size slider.

Also, this should be moved to a different sub-forum than Newbie Questions; there is no question here.

Re: Several newbie questions

I think you'd be better off going with VirtualBox. Probably a lot less headaches. Also, I'm curious as to why dual booting is out of the question.

Here's a link that describes how to install a Mozilla build if that's what you really want. It's not as hard as it seems.

With only 2 gigs of RAM, I'd suggest not using Cinnamon. Try Mate or Xfce. 2 gigs is too little for Cinnamon.

Re: Screen resolution looks like Safe Mode

It would have helped if you mentioned whether you're on Cinnamon, Mate, or Xfce. In Mate (what I use), go to the start menu >> Preferences >> Displays.

They used to. Remember the term "drive-by download"? I haven't heard about them lately, I guess browsers have gotten smart enough to not allow that anymore.

Re: Linux Mint Very Slow

The first thing that pops out to me is the low amount of memory. With only 2 gigs, I think you should try Xfce or Mate, Cinnamon might be too much for that. You can try to shut off some of Cinnamon's "bells and whistles," that might help. But I can't give you any direction on that as I've never used...
