Downloaded the .deb from the BlueGriffon web site. Appeared to install correctly. No errors. Synaptic Package Manager says it is installed. Click on icon in menu and it looks like maybe something runs for a bit but no program window comes up and bluegriffon is not listed as a process. Using Mint 18....

How to compress (zip) files/folders in Thunar

In Windows I can right click,a folder and send to compressed folder. According to various on-line references I should be able to do the same in Thunar. But there is no such option in the context menu. Thunar-archive-plugin, Zip, pZip, etc are installed Mint 18.3 XFCE 64 bit

Thunar can not browse Windows network

I have a mix of Windows, Mint 18.3 XFCE and Mint 19 XFCE computers on my network. If I click on Browse Network in Thunar on any Mint 18.3 PC Thunar will list all the Windoze machines regardless of version (XP ...10), but none show up on any Mint 19 PC.

noapic - does it disable multiple cores?

I had to add noapic to grub to resolve boot problems on a Dell Dimension C521. I have read a few comments that using noapic will disable multiple cores but I have not seen this in anything resembling 'official' documentation. In this instance the CPU is a single core Athlon 64 , not X2, but I'd like...

... M$ and the OEMs have "colluded" to put up roadblocks to the installation of Linux... Whether there is actual collusion or not, it seems like a pretty clear case of anti-competitive practices by a company (M$) which has about 90% share of the desktop operating system market.

Windows 10, especially the forced and basically uncontrollable and sometimes failed updates. Who wants to see a 'please wait' blue screen on a regular basis? Also 'obsolete' XP and Vista.

Re: What would you use if Mint wasn't available?

I like Mint XFCE so I would probably use Xubuntu. From what I can see it's about the same with fewer included apps. One thing I think is superior about Xubuntu is how it handles UEFI/Secure Boot. I just spent a lot of time trying to get Mint XFCE to boot from the hard drive with Secure Boot enabled ...
