Photogallery for 18.3 [Solved]

I need a program which will allow me to view photos in an off-line gallery. Something similar to the 'Bridge' in Photoshop. I'd like to be able to compare say three shots of the same thing for which I have used different camera settings. I cannot find a way of viewing these side by side on the same ...

Re: Linux version upgrade

Thanks to all.

I followed the gm10 advice and ran the code for 4.15.

Hopefully, next time it will do the kernel upgrade automatically.

Linux version upgrade

I've noticed that although the Update Manager (Sylvia 18.03) lists that a new version is available, when I use sudo apt full-upgrade to install this it is not installed. I have to use the Update Manager to do it. I prefer updating/upgrading using the terminal. Is there a specific terminal command I ...

Re: Indexed HDD Full_Add New HDD

Thanks. I use alphabetical indexing in LibreCalc and it is very simple. I am just an amateur but I have amassed a lot of material, some of it scanned from slides and prints. https://help.libreoffice.org/Writer/Creating_Alphabetical_Indexes The problem is not the indexing per se. It is the linking to...

Re: Security Updates Not Installing

How strange!

All of a sudden without me doing anything, and whilst I was working on something else, the upgrade completed itself.

AssetUPnP

Asset is a DLNA compatible audio server designed for high quality reproduction through in my case a Linn Majik DSM. I have used Asset in Windows but now want to try it in Linux Mint - I am trying very hard to abandon Windows completely. AssetUPnP is available for Debian. I cannot find it using Softw...

Run editor with sudo command like sido editor. Password is your user password.

Hmm...

I used Kate to write this:

Code: Select all

<?php
phpinfo();
?>
When I tried to save this as an .html file in var/www/html I don't have write access.

Should I be using a different editor?

Re: Installing PHP

Thanks. I think php7.0 is installed now.

How to check, please. All of the many test methods listed in the Community Tutorial produced errors. Seems that tutorial is badly out of date.

Re: Monthly News – March 2019

Oh, come on guys! Look at the forest, not the trees! That Linux Mint and other distros exist at all is amazing. Most users take Mint for granted. Of course they do! It is a mark of success, just like when we crank the starter motor we take it for granted the car will start. Opinions on what is good ...

Re: Copy 18.3 data files to 19.1

Mint 19.1 is on sdd3. On the left is a list of disk drives. From 19.1 I can access the disk drive containing 18.3 and open the folders. However, it will be a laborious process copying many GBs of data manually from 18.3 to 19.1. Perhaps I should uninstall this version of 19.1 and use the published m...

Re: Copy 18.3 data files to 19.1

Thanks. To be clear, I am running a quadruple boot system with 18.3 as default. Originally it was triple boot but I had to install 19.1 to solve a problem - this was already dealt with on these boards. The other boots are Windows 10 and Kubuntu. I could not find a folder (?) on any disk called 'Plac...
