mint-meta-codecs is only a list file with the standard multimedia programs and libraries that are installed in the Mint iso. By removing VLC, that list file is no longer valid. No problems . . remove away. :)

Re: How to create a LAN through a router, with a GUI ?

If the router is giving each machine an IP address that are in the same range (Eg: 192.168.1 .5 and 192.168.1 .50) Then use your File Manager on each machine to share a folder (iirc it's in the pop-up context menu when you right-click on the folder you want to share).

Re: Preventing specific app from updating (19)

If the Webmin software is bypassing Synaptic and the Update Manager, you will most likely need to delve into the Webmin documentation to find a way to disable it.

Re: How to setup desktop shortcut that will run program as root?

In Mint 19 (I'm not on it), I think pkexec might be what you need at the beginning of your command. Try man pkexec in the terminal to see if it is what you are looking for.
