Zoom has now better security options for conducting online video conferences and it is pefectly safe to use the app. It is at par with security likes of on premise R-HUB HD video conferencing servers, Webex, Gotomeeting etc.
That's great! Care to provide some cites in support?

Re: Non technical question about alternatives to sewing.

I have been handy sewing by hand since I was a teenager. I can do some basic alterations like taking in a hem or a pants waist. I like pants with wide legs so I often buy larger pants and then tuck them in at the waist. Having said that, I find sewing by hand pretty boring and I avoid it more and mo...

Re: Non technical question about alternatives to sewing.

Rambo wasn't sewing a duvet cover. That's because real macho men don't use duvets. They sleep outdoors and the most they will use for protection is their tactical cover which doubles as a tent, a raft, a bear trap and multiple other uses. Real men don't use duvets but they will definitely sew whate...

Re: The mystery of the disappearing audio

The above command outputs what is getting changed, but you can simply list them instead with this command: find $HOME ! -user $USER I somewhat doubt the 2 issues are related, but could be wrong. If you're occasionally logging in as root, I could see that causing one if not both issues. Well, I list...

Re: The mystery of the disappearing audio

Well, I can't say what might be causing the icon issue at all. My first suspicion would be an ownership issue, but rebooting clearing it means it's not that. However, it still wouldn't be a bad idea to run sudo chown -Rc $USER:$USER $HOME to find and fix any issues. Just to make sure I understand, ...

Re: The mystery of the disappearing audio

Let's start by looking at cat /var/log/syslog | grep pulse and cat /var/log/syslog.1 | grep pulse Thanks, will do that and report back. In the meanwhile it occurs to me that this issue might well be related or have a common cause with the issue of the disappearing desktop icons which is much more a...

Re: The mystery of the disappearing audio

next time just try pulseaudio -k without deleting the files and see if that also fixes the issue. If it does, we can try debug logging of PulseAudio to see if that gives us any better clue. It does solve the issue so, for now, I will be doing that rather than restarting the computer which is a huge...

Setting default keyboard layout

In keyboard layouts I have both US and US_Intl. I have US_Intl first on the list as I expected it would default to the first but, no, it defaults to US no matter whether I put it first or last.

How can I make Linux default to US_Intl?

Re: [SOLVED] Linux Mint 19.3 Random 5-10 sec Freezes

You can also use /etc/default/grub:GRUB_DEFAULT=<N> in which, generally, <N> corresponds to the N-th line "Found linux image: ..." in the output of sudo update-grub (which you need to rerun after editing /etc/default/grub); the N-th menuentry in /boot/grub/grub.cfg. Interesting, thanks. I will prob...

Why don't you not just uninstall anything but the current 4.15? Update Manager -> View -> Linux Kernels -> Remove Kernels.
Because, as I said, I want to have the option of using the latest 5.x and comparing performances.

Re: operating system boot time

I have just installed a couple LM19 on SSDs and, man, they fly!

They are already very reasonably priced and will use them any time I do a new install although I will keep my present HDDs for now until I reinstall.

Re: [SOLVED] Linux Mint 19.3 Random 5-10 sec Freezes

I went back to kernel 4.15 because of slowness and random freeze problems with 5.x when copying files and when using swap. After using 4.15 for some time I believe it goes better but is not totally immune from that problem. I have 4 GB RAM on this machine and the bad habit of opening pages and havin...

Re: Webcam image is upside down...

Maybe it was a computer for the Australian market?



More seriously though, JPG stills and video have an orientation field which some software uses and some doesn't. I sometimes get wrongly oriented photos in my email which are oriented correctly when viewed in another program.
