Re: Minecraft wont open and I dont know what to do with a .tar.gz file

Installing the Flathub copy worked for me. It solved my 1.12.2 crash problem. Perhaps it could help your situation. I run a Raspberry Pi group of units for personal web servers using the Craftbian OS for personal Minecraft servers in the Java-based Minecraft. It, ideally runs 1.12.2 since 1.13 and u...

DVDStyler Non-Functional in LM20

Heilsa, drengr! This is only a heads up that, as of right now, DVDStyler is non-functional in LM20. DVDStyler's latest release that's usable in LM appears to be built on the 16.04 package base. It is usable up to and including 19.3, however. I happen to have LM19.3 and LM 20 on live USB keys as to n...

Re: [SOLVED] WIN32DISKIMAGER Equivalent in Software Manager?

Hello. Ideally, yes, a GUI is best preferred. However, all of my research, which includes what folks have told me, everywhere, DD. Use DD. All you need is DD. Take your DD or go home... It was so daunting while looking at the man page and --help, I steered away, right quick. And then, yesterday's su...

Re: WIN32DISKIMAGER Equivalent in Software Manager?

No (or maybe yes), as an sd card it will normally appear as something like mmcblk0, with the first partition mmcblk0p1 and the next mmcblk0p2 and so on. You will be able to see if you run gparted. This is what I get when I plug a card into the integrated card reader in my laptop. It may be that in ...

Re: WIN32DISKIMAGER Equivalent in Software Manager?

Giving it some more thought about DD, I may just be able to stick with that and go make my video. I would like to get a quick clarification, if I could. It would be most appreciated... I plug in my RPi sd card into the reader on this LM machine and it will have 'sdc1' & 'sdc2'. There are the two...

Re: WIN32DISKIMAGER Equivalent in Software Manager?

I considered DD. After thinking that over, I realized I need a 'point & click' solution for a tutorial video. I'll be showing how to crate an image of a Raspberry Pi SDCard in Linux Mint.

[SOLVED] WIN32DISKIMAGER Equivalent in Software Manager?

Good morning. I've been researching for days, now, Linux equivalents to WINDISK32IMAGER (A WIndow-only application) within the LM software manager. I'm looking to be able to create either a .iso or .img file(preferred) from a microSD card(from my handy-dandy built-in card reader) and also be able to...

Here is what I hope may become a dedicated thread for the Switched To Linux channel that resides on YouTube. In this first post, I wanted to bring forth reference to the LMDE4 episode covering many things in Debian Edition 4. Tom provides many details about the edition and it is very informative. He...

Re: Appreciation of Mint and a thought about clock manipulation.

Lance, thank you very much for those steps. Flawless victory, of course! I didn't have a goal of fixing that issue, but I very much appreciate the support! Now, this machine is kinda sorta relatively complete! Meaning, I don't have any additional plans until I do, naturally. Thank you, everyone, for...

Appreciation of Mint and a thought about clock manipulation.

I have used Linux Mint (Cinnamon, in particular) since '14/'15 and I must say I absolutely adore and appreciate the OS. It has increased the general performance of my PC in a very large difference to Windows. The OS has become the general household OS, leaving Windows to being able to support it for...

Yes, this may be a necro-post, but I just ran into this problem. My system tray "disappeared", mysteriously. I was running version 18.3... 18.3 - I cold-rebooted, still gone. 19 - I upgraded off of 18.3 to 19, still gone. 19 - I made a new user, problem remained in that user, still gone. I...

Re: How to Install GRAMPS 4.2.2 in Rosa (Family Tree Maker alternative)

" Version 5.0.1, a new maintenance release, has been released.

Make sure to backup before you upgrade.

See:

Could the software manager and/or PPA be updated to match?

Thank you.

HyperFIDO Setup

Hello. Some time back I purchased a HyperFIDO. A big decision maker was the fact it reported it worked with Linux. It turns out it is distro-specific since it does not work with Linux Mint out of the box (LM, that is). So, I figure I need to either modify an existing file or create a new file with i...

Installing LMDE3 from Cinnamon

Hello, all.

I would like to install LMDE3 on my machine. I currently operate on Cinnamon in version 19. How would I install the desktop so I can choose it in the display manager?

Thank you very much.
