Re: DVD authoring

I've tried those out awhile back and liked DvdStyler the best. I even did a screencap tutorial on it. No idea where it is, but you can search for it here.

Just found it: viewtopic.php?p=1274454#p1274454

Re: Pinta and GIMP crash!

Since the latest Cinnamon update, Gimp works just fine even with the traditional desktop that I'm using now. Apparently there was a fix in the update. Pinta seems to work fine also. Is there any particular filter or workflow that causes the freezing?

Re: Pinta and GIMP crash!

I just installed Pinta to try it out. Seems to work OK here. Pinta is way to weak an image editor for me, so doubt I will ever use it.

Re: Pinta and GIMP crash!

Have you install all updates? A recent Cinnamon update fixed the issue with Gimp. I don't use Pinta, so can't comment on that.

Re: Can't place audio in timeline Kdenlive

I have that song. I ripped the Dark side of the moon CD many years ago. I generally only use "Royalty Free" sound tracks in my video projects though.

Re: Can't place audio in timeline Kdenlive

The only thing I can think of is properties that are incomparable with the project settings. Try Right-Clicking on the audio file in the project bin, and select Extract Audio - Wav. See if the new wav file works.

Re: (SOLVED) Software For Converting MP3's To AAC's

FYI, WinFF is not just for videos. It uses ffmpeg, therefore you can use it for virtually any media format including aac. You just need to edit the command and save the profile. I use WinFF all the time for many types of media format conversions, it's very fast and great quality.

Re: How to install WINE on mate 19.0

I used to use wine for various "Windows" only apps, but I got tired of fixing wine, so now I only run "Windows" apps in a "Windows" VM. It's locked down, so no real threat can get in and cause havoc or whatever...

Re: chrome or firefox?

I think he meant, They are calling home.....

Either way, I don't care because FireFox is not up to snuff for my Banking websites that I use, therefore it is unacceptable. Chromium has no such
problems and therefore has my blessings. To each their own though....

Chromium here. FireFox has issues with my bank webite, so rarely ever use it. No problems with Chromium.

Re: Video Editing Software

I mostly use Kdenlive in Linux. It works well enough for most projects. It has multiple video and audio tracks to work with and is a pretty versatile NLE. I've pretty much tested all the Linux NLE's and like Kdenlive the most so far.

Re: SOLVED How to create "shortcuts" to an Appimage ?

This is how I make menu links for my AppImages. You can then send copies to desktop or panel.

1) Right-click on menu and select "Configure"
2) Select "Menu Editor"
3) Select the category, then click "New Item" and create the shortcut link.

Re: Can't remove Gimp 10 (with ppa-purge)

It doesn't remove your personal settings and files like scripts, patterns, brushes, etc. That way when you install Gimp 2.10x again, the settings will be there.

Removing:
open a terminal and type:

No such thing as Gimp 10, maybe you mean Gimp 2.10x ?

You can add a "Window List" applet to your panel. This will give the close all option.
