Re: Updating Programs

...that shows you, among other things, any dependencies that may be missing. No update suggestion for Firefox? I updated FireFox and anything else that needed updating using the Update Manager. I'm not clear on what I should be looking for in the Synaptic. I didn't see any alerts or anything on my ...

Re: Updating Programs

Got all updates done.

I checked for further answers on the Mozilla forum. One person suggested reinstalling video card drivers to clear up some error messages.

Another person said that the problem is only solved by using a 32-bit version of FF rather than the 64-bit I have.

Re: Updating Programs

Updating Programs

Hi all, I'm still learning about Linux - and also educating friends on the bits I've learned when they say, "Linux? What's that?" Anyhow, I've seen the very easy tutorial on how to upgrade what I already have. I seem to be a bit rusty in my forum searching skills so I thought I'd ask. I have the ver...

Context3D

I just converted to Linux Mint last night, but didn't do much. Tonight after work, I logged onto Facebook to play the one game I enjoy and when the game is probably 95% loaded, an error message pops up: 'Context3D not available! Possible reasons: wrong wmode or missing device support.' I have Mozill...

Re: Trouble Replacing W10 with Linux Mint

I successfully switched last night then logged off.

I'm not expecting much out of this machine. I'm mainly hoping to use it to write.

Maybe down the line I can afford to buy a real computer with Linux on it.

Re: Trouble Replacing W10 with Linux Mint

Well now I feel like an idiot. Lol I've confused things because I'm so used to having a regular hard drive rather than what I now have with the eMMC card. I didn't remove it, I just confused it with the SD card because I DO have one of those. I'm off to dive in. Thanks loads everyone who responded.

Trouble Replacing W10 with Linux Mint

Hello All, I have a moderate level of computer knowledge, all self-taught. Trying to install Linux Mint Cinnamon on an HP Stream to completely replace Windows 10. I put it on a USB stick and as I had never looked at Linux before, I loaded it through the USB stick and found it to be pretty straightfo...

Re: Welcome Ladies - post here :)

Hey y'all! So glad to know that there's a forum for Linux Mint and specifically this lil area for ladies. I made a mistake nearly a year ago by purchasing a small, non-Net/Chromebook laptop. I naively believed I could have the minimal amount of programs I wanted - just MS Office and a VPN and a viru...
