Re: problem of burning CD with Brasero

I'll second Pierre suggestion of xfburn one of the first things I install on my computers. It's just a simple straight forward tool that works. Good luck. I'll third this. Brasero doesn't work on my Mint 19 installation, but xfburn does flawlessly. I use it to burn Blu-Ray backups of my files and m...

Re: ShutDown Vbox before Shutting down Linux

I'm used an init sys v system and not this systemd related stuff, but you could try putting a script in /etc/rc0.d and /etc/rc6.d for shutting down the vm's. VirtualBox has a script in both directories already called K01virtualbox. Just makes sure it has a name that is before that one, like K01Shut...

Re: ShutDown Vbox before Shutting down Linux

The concept here is: If the user tells Linux mint to shutdown without shutting down VBox first then do a proper shutdown anyway. There is a option of start up programs. Why not an equivalent option for shutdown ... it is much more critical than start up. I'm used an init sys v system and not this s...

Re: Virus in a winetricks steam installer

I would get farther, but it never completely worked. Cox/Comcast suck and DirecTV requires a Windows program installation. It's no biggie - I rarely watch TV. I might add that trying to spoof sling.tv doesn't work either (through the browser) and must use a windows version of chrome/firefox, etc......

You can do that but it is NOT recommended. Use an administrative account - with sudo.
