Re: Poll: are forums password requirements too complicated?

I'm a little late to the discussion as I just returned from England. Anyway, online security is up to the individual, and I think that passwords are a key part of that security. I have over 170 unique passwords being managed with Dashlane. It may be a pain, but anyone who is serous about their onlin...

Re: rEFIt boot error sudendly happened, reason ??

While I'm no expert on this, but have you tried to boot the Mac using the "Option" key. When you hear the chime on the reboot, quickly press and hold down the option key. This will normally take you to the Mac Boot menu. You should see three device options to boot from: MacOS - EFI Boot - Recovery D...

Re: Password Managers, What do You Use?

I use Dashlane, and have been for quite a while now. It syncs my passwords with all my devices, which includes my iPhone X, iPad, MacOS machines, and Linux Mint. Tons of features which includes warnings if it detects if any of your info has appeared on the darkweb. Personally I like it's auto loggin...

Re: Mesa Transitional Dummy Package

Instead of listing each package separately, they bundle them up into one list package (the dummy package). Those MESA packages are important for your graphics hardware. With that said, there is a possibility to break your graphics too. Please be prudent and have a good backup before you install tho...

The issue of Mint not being able to run on every PC is evident from the posts here requesting help, or identifying problems. Luckily for me Mint 19 works perfectl...

I'm afraid it's not in the plans, although I do have a cousin who runs a B & B in Torquay. We'll be in my home town Birmingham, staying with my mom and dad.

I'm Mintless

Sadly my MacMini has given up and with it my mint installation. When I booted-up this morning, nothing happened. No lights, no boot chime, nothing. I hoped it was the SSD, but it turns out the Logic Board is fried. I could install Mint on my iMac 27", but it's pretty much brand new, so I've opted to...
