Re: Partial DNS issues on Static Network

Hi

you should change your local domain to different one - like domain.mylocal instead of .local
better solution would be to take a subdomain of an official domain you own e.g. internal.officialdomain

see

its based on wine but seamless - you do not have to start wine or any starter - you just start each app (word, excel etc) from your mint startmenue see screenshot:

Re: Copying a directory from one PC to another

To install only some fonts like Arial or Times New Roman, I found a simpler solution: Call up an old document with this font, delete the text to a "new line" and then save it as a template with the correct name - e.g. "Arial" under Libre Writer. But I'm still interested in how to transfer complete ...

Re: hplip doesn't accept my user password

Hi,

I had the same problem on all LM19 installs - my workaround was to give the root user a password (same as mine) by:

sudo passwd root

then the hplip install works

Re: Is it possible to clone LinuxMint to use in another machine (like Ghost in Windows)

Hi,

You can do that with clonezilla (boot stick) https://clonezilla.org/

Or with timeshift - but there you'll have to setup lm bevor restoring on the new machine

Re: Issues with steam

Did you delete the .steam folder in your home dir (its hidden - so check the show hidden button in nemo) ?
If not I'll do that and then try reinstall

Re: Modem 3g detected as storage device

what is the problem with that ?

as i remember some USB 3G modems have an storage space where some vendor software is stored for install (had one one of them some years ago)

but i think that should not affect the functionality

Hi,

I'm using an nvidia GTX 1060 with 2 28" UHD Samsung monitors and that works great (also on Games in full UHD)
As you say you're not gambling that mutch i think an GTX 1030 should be ok too (as the chipset should be the same)
