Re: Eclipse and NetBeans Don't Work on Linux Mint 19

I didn't realize until today that NetBeans wasn't working. I just assumed that it would because it seemed to install just fine. I used the link pddm provided ( https://tutorialforlinux.com/2018/07/04/how-to-install-netbeans-8-x-all-on-linux-mint-19-easy-visual-guide/ ) and Netbeans is up and running...

Re: Advice for adding Windows 10 partition

Something went wrong when I backed up everything overnight and my hard drive had been overwritten until it was full. I ended up just pulling essential files from it and then adding Win 10 and then Linux. I got some tips from this article: https://itsfoss.com/guide-install-linux-mint-16-dual-boot-win...

Re: Advice for adding Windows 10 partition

Thanks so much! I'll start by creating a backup of everything with Aptik (thanks, AZgl1500). Then either wipe it all clean, install Windows then Mint, or move Linux over and install Windows. I'm not sure which would be easiest, but I'm leaning towards shrinking the Linux partition a bit and just add...

[SOLVED]Advice for adding Windows 10 partition

I'm happy with Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon. I'm getting used to using great open source programs: Inkscape, LibreOffice, etc. But I'm a frustrated gamer and C# programmer. After trying a bunch of different ways to get things to work on Mint, I've decided to set up a Windows 10 partition for the games and...

Re: World of Warcraft/Battle.net Wine help

I upgraded to 19 over the weekend and had success loading Battle.net - so I've had progress. I also added a bunch of dlls via winetricks. I previously had only added a couple. After I installed WoW - "Game Initialization Failed!" I've read that running it in a 32-bit version might make a difference,...

Re: Linux Mint Cinnamon 19 upgrade - 'apt --fix-broken install'

Thanks, Flemur!

I ran
sudo apt-get --fix-broken install
And now I have this Eula:

What am I supposed to do with it? I'd accept it, but I'm not sure how.

Re: World of Warcraft/Battle.net Wine help

I got tired of playing WOW, but at one point codeweavers had released a crossover product that supported WOW. It's been months since I used it, but seem to recall that it worked passably well. Best of luck. Just search for codeweavers Crossover Linux. I'm taking a look at this Crossover product. Th...

I found this tutorial:

but I still haven't gotten it to work, it doesn't ask for the DLL, but errors out.

Re: Recommended Digital Tablet for 18.3 Cinnamon

Artgirl - How do you have the buttons on your stylus set?
I'm thinking the defaults (whatever they are) aren't working for me.
I'm just looking for suggestions from someone that regularly uses their tablet.
Thanks!

Re: Learning Inkscape from an Illustrator background

That list of differences is good. I've been trying to figure out how to create gradients, and it looks like that's not available in Inkscape.

Thanks!

Learning Inkscape from an Illustrator background

I'm going to guess that many people here have made the switch from Illustrator to Inkscape. I'm looking for recommendations for online tutorials or books to help my transition. I've got a big project coming up and would rather take the time to use Inkscape for the project than continue with Illustra...

Re: Recommended Digital Tablet for 18.3 Cinnamon

I had my son try to use my tablet on his computer and he said the tablet worked but he couldn't get the stylus to work.
Which jogged my brain. Was the stylus/pen charged?
The stylus/pen is now charged and working.
I should have checked that first.
Thank you for your help, ArtGirl!

At what point should you start fresh and reinstall Mint?

I've been using Mint for a couple of months now. I'll admit, I have downloaded and installed a lot. I've been all over the map with front-end technologies - trying to find something that works. I set up a LAMPP server so I could run Gulp and stuff. I never did get Gulp to work. Which was a lot of fr...

Re: Welcome Ladies - post here :)

Wish I had found this site before I started installing and adding stuff to my laptop. I've spent my career in Windows and Mac OS. Anti-virus & Anti-Malware seem to have messed up my system. Old habits break hard, right? I'm considering a fresh Mint install to clean up all the mess I've made. I'm a n...

Re: Recommended Digital Tablet for 18.3 Cinnamon

Thanks, ArtGirl. I've got a Pro tablet, which worked on my laptop when it was running Windows 7, but not since I made the jump to Linux Mint. I haven't tried using it with Gimp - I'm trying to get the hang of Inkscape after years working in Illustrator. I don't remember if I installed with the 3rd p...
