Re: how put AppImage in menu

If you like the GUI approach then maybe you'd like Appimagelauncher (from the Software Manager).
It gives you a choice to:
1. run the Appimage once (for trial)
2. to fully integrate the Appimage (including create menu entries)

Re: Hostnames for Samba shares and recent update...?

Yes, SMB1 is apparently less secure, but it's all my old NAS box understands.
In your case, I think you need to hope that altair4 notices this thread.

(Solved) Forum search box usage

My NAS box connected on 19.3 but not on 20.0 so I searched the Mint forums (search used = "nas mint 20") - 693042 matches. No references to "nas" in the first 5 pages - I gave up. So I used the same search parameters on the interwebby thingy using DuckDuckGo. The 3rd hit pointed me to a page on REDD...

Re: Suggestions for VLC replacement? (mainly for audio)

Celluloid covers my modest audio needs as well as video - have you checked out the 'hamburger' (3 horizontal lines) in top right corner? It offers 'Playlist' etc. Also if I select various tracks in Nemo, right click & select 'Open with Celluloid' it does exactly that. Must admit that I can't find 's...

Re: Flatpaks slow to launch

I use AppImages in preference to Flatpaks or Snaps so can't answer your question directly.
But I have Inkscape v1.0 AppImage and it opens in 4 seconds on my 2008/9 hardware (+Mint 19.3 Cinnamon).

Re: I'm not leaving mint ever again

@ Koning Mint
If kernel 5.6.X is the big attraction, then I can report that 5.6.0-050600 works fine with Mint 19.3 Cinnamon.
(I installed 5.6.0 because I wanted to run Wireguard with my VPN)

Re: VPN and Linux (wireguard)

@Gruppo Sportivo - thanks! When I checked, it was an available option on my PIA v2.0.1 (build 04518) so I installed kernel 5.6.0-050600 to get the kernel module it uses. It seems to connect faster and also seems faster in use - not a very scientific test, more an observation :-) Thanks for the 'head...

Re: Which external HDD are you using ? For how long ?

I've had a 2TB WD Elements running for >4 years
and some 160GB Hitachi drives running for >donkeys years.
I've not been so lucky with the longevity of Seagate drives.
Handling can affect life span e.g. "Portable" doesn't mean it's "Airport Handler Proof"

Re: Libre Office - Calc Unwanted interaction with Firefox

Also unable to reproduce the problem here:
Using LM19.3 Cinnamon with LibreOffice 6.4.0.3 from an AppImage.
Instead of having Calc open during your cut & paste, what happens if you have a Writer Document open instead?
Or have xed open in the background and try that?
