Re: Why phpBB?

I find the Discourse platform to be amazing.
The ability to use MarkDown, the ability to see sub threads within a thread, Quotes mechanism, all is top notch and will make the experience of finding information and discussing at the forum much better.

I really hope you will make the move to Discourse.

Re: FlatPak (FlatHub) Application Installation - Destination Folder Path

Actually if you read the XML fields you;d see it requires Admin Auth.

I think it is in the other file which grants it permission.

Re: Flatpak KeePassXC problems

I think you should have opened an issue in the FlatPak project: https://github.com/flathub/org.keepassxc.KeePassXC Try run it with the flag --filesystem=home . The way it is configured currently it seems it can only interact well with /tmp . What you're experiencing is the security measure of the Fl...

Re: Software Manager in 18.3 ... Wowzers!!!

Is there a reason why the Software Manager in Linux Mint 18.3 can install applications in folders which requires root privileges for write permission without asking for root password? I can see it installs FlatPak applications in /var/lib/flatpak/app/ yet it doesn't ask for password. I even closed i...

FlatPak (FlatHub) Application Installation - Destination Folder Path

Hello, My preferred installation of applications is using FlatPak (FlatHub). Yet there is something strange. I use Software Manager to install FlatPak and it installs them on /var/lib/flatpak/app/ which is system wide folder. The strange thing is Software Manager doesn't ask for Root Password to do ...

Re: Rollback to Linux Kernel & Linux Firmware Prior to MeltDown & Spectre Fix

Since those are irrelevant for the end user (Single User of a computer) I hope in Linux they will switch all of them OFF by default. I really hate those performance hits. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SecurityTeam/KnowledgeBase/Variant4 In Ubuntu, SSBD is OFF by default because it is not needed by most p...

Re: [SOLVED]How Can I Display the Grub Menu?

@banjo,
The single # you added (Before GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0) is exactly the default for Linux Mint 18.2 (At least that what I got out of the box).
In Linux Mint 18.3 they uncommented it by default.

Re: Intermittent File Corruption Copying To NTFS

I was talking about the reliability of the NTFS drive in Linux Mint. I have an HD I would like both Windows 10 (18.3) and Linux Mint 18.3 will be able to access and share data on (Dual Boot). It is not the Boot Drive of Windows 10. I'm asking if the NTFS driver of Linux Mint (I guess NTFS-3G) is the...
