Re: Wine install fails in Mint 19.2

Selection of audio output

In another thread, a lot of explanation and testing was done. The problem is the selection of on line built-in audio on a forever basis. On my machine, it needs to be reset every boot-up. I see no reason for this problem and all the testing - it is a problem that did not exist prior to the installat...

Re: LM 19.2 select USB headphones always

My microphone is USB and is always selected - works great. The audio I use is line out built-in - but, it must be selected after every reboot. Seems it is a small problem that I can overcome by manually selecting after booting up. Trying to configure 19.2 to understand this is beyond me. Previous ve...

Re: LM 19.2 select USB headphones always

Interesting question, as I would like to make "line out built-in audio" as my selection at all times. Currently, my selection does not survive a reboot and must always be selected for each session. Suggestions?

Re: When for FF 66.0.4?

Should be when for Firefox 66.0.5!!

Why is the repository for Mint so slow? And, before some jerk responds saying do this or that as a workaround, I am running Mint and see no reason for subverting it with changes or workarounds. If I wanted to use a different distro, I would do so.

Speculation and suspicion are what cause searches for evidence. Shutting down same is merely a means to thwart a search for evidence.

Re: When for FF 66.0.4?

Any estimate in 66.0.4 getting into the repository? Fortunately, I dual boot and can use Windows 10 when needed. It is already updated and the game playing has ended. So far as alternative browsers - Firefox was the least evil in the past and easiest to navigate. It was secure and trustworthy - not ...

Re: When for FF 66.0.4?

I noticed there is no "easy" means to turn off Firefox updates. kind of sounds like Microsoft. Must be they have something really important they want loaded on our computers. Food for thought folks!!!

Re: [SOLVED TEMPORARILY] ALL Add ons suddenly stopped working in Firefox 66.3

I was referring to Windows 10 - I should have mentioned that fact. I suppose Windows 7 is a victim of no support from Microsoft! Just the continuing saga of forcing Windows 10 onto everyone - directly or indirectly. My sole reason for using Mint is to get away from Microsoft. Difficult, as their jun...

Re: [SOLVED TEMPORARILY] ALL Add ons suddenly stopped working in Firefox 66.3

On Windows it fixed itself after about 24 hours. Not so on Mint - so I went to config:about and fixed it myself. Depend on nothing/no one to do anything right these days - all follow the Microsoft model (just jamb everything down the user's throats) - end rant.

WINE 4.0 - easy install

I have found WINE to be totally useless as it is available on 19.1. Hence, I did some digging and found this full set of instructions:

Hope this can help some other users.
