Re: Opening a MAC file

Hi Stob, You don't need to go to a website for that. Its in the Software Manager . Run Software Manager , type "sqlite", and it should show up near the top. Once installed, it should show up as DB Browser for SQLite , under Accessories, in your Menu. sqlitebrowser.png I had also forgot to mention, t...

Re: Opening a MAC file

Stob, The contacts on a Mac, are filled out in the GUI on a easy to read "card", but in reality, the saved contacts are written to a database. In your /Users/Yourusername/Library/Application Support/AddressBook , are three files named: addressbook-v22.abcddb addressbook-v22.abcddb-wal addressbook-v2...

Re: Stereo sound manipulation

Welcome! I second MrEen's comments, as I can't think of anything that will automatically adjust individual channel sound level, based on what channel the sound is coming through (I think that's what you wanted in Step 1?) For your second step, you could try QasHctl from the Software Manager . If you...

Re: Grub working, but display is not visible

Hi Steve, Thanks for the reply. I tinkered around yet some more, and made a little progress. You got me thinking about themes, so I parked the stock ones out of the way, and picked a custom theme. No-go. Tried fooling around with the settings some more, and ended up presently as shown below: GRUB_DE...

Grub working, but display is not visible

ISSUE: Recently, I have no visible tty consoles (F1~F6), nor visible GRUB menu. System is about four years old now and has always worked well. Any thoughts or ideas will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading! (Disclaimer: I did research this pretty heavily on the web, and went down a lot of ra...

Re: How to restart the bluetooth adapter without restarting the system?

My apologies, I should have also asked you to post back the responses you got from those command entries. Could you re-run them and post that info? Also, please provide output of: service bluetooth status after running the previous two. I can't say that I'm well versed enough at it to speak to the k...

Re: How to restart the bluetooth adapter without restarting the system?

Hi bythckr, Try running these in terminal when you resume your computer to see if it will wake your bluetooth up: sudo systemctl enable bluetooth.service sudo systemctl start bluetooth.service Those should get it going, since it was working before you put it in hibernate. Have you tried using "suspe...

Re: Adobe Flash Player been installing for 4 hours

Hi monere, What are you downloading that is 600MB in size? Adobe-flashplugin is 35.6MB, and you can get the adobe-flash-properties-gtk for settings and options, if desired--it is 732KB in size. 600MB download, and if your 20kb/s speed is accurate, would take almost three days. The 35.6MB download wo...

Re: can't edit/delete or add bookmark in waterfox

Do you get your bookmarks in the sidebar when you use Ctl+b? I was looking at their support page this morning, and I don't seem to have any of the issues that multiple other users have. Don't know what else for you to try really. You could try a different profile, and set it as the default, to see i...

Re: can't edit/delete or add bookmark in waterfox

Have you tried wiping it out and reinstalling?

Just downloaded/extracted to a folder in Downloads, and all is working fine. After making menu bar visible, clicking on Bookmarks, then Show All Bookmarks, the Import and Backup button in the pop-up dialogue button worked and imported as expected.

Is there something easy that I'm missing?
Yes. You're missing a windows 10 support forum.
Yes that, and maybe a driver. Did WIN 10 "automatically" install a driver for you? Newest driver at Samsung for that printer is for WIN 7.

Hi Coolmans, I updated my daughter's dual boot laptop last night. Tried to get her to use Mint when not doing her college work but that's a different story. It hadn't been updated in a long time. Mint Updater updated, then 458MB of updates, then ran again and got a message that essentially stated th...

That sounds like “xkill”. Normally is invoked from a terminal command of the same name.

Re: Who has managed to keep the oldest computer still alive and kicking?

Got an approximately 2000-2001 era Mac PowerPC4 (blue & silver case) that I successfully got to dual boot the first version of OSX with Lubuntu 32 bit. The old OSX has a lot of nice (but old) Adobe programs on it that I wanted to hang on to for no good reason. The Lubuntu, boots, operates, but is ho...
