Re: Install latest version of Audacity

If you install Audacity using the terminal using apt-get or similar you will get the first result from the software manager which is version 2.2.1. The other result from the file manager is version 2.3.3 but it's the flatpak version. The flatpak version of software in my experience is usually more u...

Opening a file from a network location in a flatpak application

I've been trying out a flatpak application called rednotebook which I installed from the software manager. I installed the flatpak version because I didn't want to compile the program myself from the github repository or download a .deb file (I'm also not sure that there is one) and it's not availab...

Re: Drawing on a PDF file

OK, to be clear, it looks like you picked xournal++ which I have never personally tried and is also a flatpak.

Re: Drawing on a PDF file

I just checked out the software manager and realised you probably searched xournal there and found these three: xournal, xournal++ and xournal (flathub). The first is the one I meant and the third is the flatpak version of the first. Some times the flatpak can be mor eup to date but it looks to me l...

Re: Drawing on a PDF file

As a general rule I usually take whichever version is in the repositories. There are cases where you might want to get the newest version (the repository version is usually not the newest) but you have to evaluate this on a case by case basis. So that means I would simply open a terminal and type su...

Re: Drawing on a PDF file

There's a program in the repositories called xournal which works well for this.

Re: Basic Audio Recorder.

Maybe a little more complicated but you might consider audacity whcih you can find in the official repositories (no PPA required).

Re: Syntax help please

My two cents: trytip was giving a very helpful answer given OP's perceived skill level i.e. offering two solutions which do not require use of the terminal which can be scary for new people. Although in my opinion using cp in the terminal would be the best way to solve OP's problem. I think the part...

Re: Ryzen 3000 series and GPU compatibility

Hi thanks again for the info. If proprietary drivers are required either way then it seems to me more sensible that I go with Nvidia so that I would have the option to use CUDA later if I want to. I don't really have a fixed budget but there are a few things I have decided I must have and would like...

Re: Ryzen 3000 series and GPU compatibility

I'm actually not in NZ but there is also a significant difference between the 3600 and 3600X here.

For your GPU are you using the AMD drivers or the open source drivers?

Re: Ryzen 3000 series and GPU compatibility

Hi thanks for the tips. I think you're right on the 3600 vs the 3700X. What about 3600 vs 3600X, to my understanding the X is just a binned and preoverclocked version for slightly higher cost although it uses more power (and presumably runs hotter). In terms of your proposition of getting an X570 bo...

Ryzen 3000 series and GPU compatibility

I am thinking of building a new desktop PC. My primary use for said PC would be work related which involves doing CPU heavy calculations. In terms of distribution my mind is pretty much made up on Linux Mint because I've been using it for a while, I like it and the software I need to do my work is m...

Re: How to navigate to my Ext HDD?

The "/" folder is your root directory (i.e. your internal storage). It seems that you are looking at the open file dialog from some program. Do you see the external drive when you open your file explorer (probably nemo) directly? It may be there but unmounted in which case clicking on it from within...

Re: Easiest way to install Linux Mint to multiple PCs (new and identical hw)?

Hi Limsy, My approach would be to set up one system to your satisfaction and then create a bootable USB of Clonezilla. Then you can clone your set up system onto as many disks as you like and install them in other PCs to have all of them running (initially) identical operating systems. If you want d...
