Re: What are your favorite movies?

It just occurred to me that, as we are a very cosmopolitan board, we might also say which language is used in said movies. Not all of us are multilingual, and something may appeal, only to be disappointed because we do not understand the dialogue. Yes, movies can be very confusing. There was this m...

Re: Using Mint after Apple for small charity

I'm confused. Are you saying Mac OS Extended should be considered as a universally supported file system? Yes and No. That's exactly the problem: I've been listening music via HFS+ all day long - I also watch movies and so on - no problem at all. It's the user rights - I copy data between Linux and...

Re: Using Mint after Apple for small charity

... It goes without saying that Mac OS X Extended (aka "HFS+") is out of the question because it has limited support in GNU+Linux and no support whatsoever in Windows, and likewise the various libre filesystems out there, in particular EXT3 and EXT4, are completely capable of being 100% supported b...

Monitor calibration with the nVidia driver

I'm trying to set up something like color management in Linux Mint. After reading quite a few pages on the internet, I'm not much further than at the beginning: most instructions assume a hardware calibration with a color meter... I don't own it - and the question arises whether I need to have it. F...

Re: Opera un-removeable/un-updateable

Hi Ronald the current Opera is not in the official package directories. You have to download the program from the Opera page and install it with GDebi Package Installer - it should be in the folder > opt. Opera is a bit choosy with the operating system: if your operating system is supported, you sho...

Re: Zip File

Click with the right mouse button on the zip-file and choose:
Extract Here
Normally the zip-file will be in your download folder. From here you can move the unpacked file (a new folder...) to the desired location.
