Are there any dangerous/vulnerable packages I should remove?

I already un-installed Mono and Openjdk, which apparently was accidentally installed. I don't think I have Java, but there two Java packages of which I don't know whether I should get rid of. libhsql1.8.0-java : Java SQL database engine, and libservlet3.1-java : Servlet 3.1, JSP 2.3, EL 3.0 and Webs...

Oh yeah. I forgot I needed to mount the desktop. I just dragged the file to the terminal in place of that. The firewall "kill switch" works.

[SOLVED]FreeCAD information collection

Does anyone know if FreeCAD collects any information? I can't find a privacy policy or user agreement for the application.

Re: [SOLVED]Will uninstalling default programs like Brasero hurt the OS?

I know. It was only a few programs that didn't have any connections to other programs, though. It is all I would ever want to get rid of.

Re: How to setup a "kill switch" for a vpn via firewall rules?

I tried it, and for some reason the computer can't find my shell files.

Code: Select all

user@pc ~ $ sudo chmod +x vpnfirewallmodeon vpnfirewallmodeoff
chmod: cannot access 'vpnfirewallmodeon': No such file or directory
chmod: cannot access 'vpnfirewallmodeoff': No such file or directory

I'm more of a low intermediate Linux user(only mint) than a noob. I have been using it on and off for over a year now.

Re: How to fix dns leaks?

My gosh. It worked, thank you so much. But what does easy-rsa and unbound do? Also what exactly does this do? I'm not sure if I asked this before, but if I did, I didn't get an answer. block-outside-dns script-security 2 up /etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf down /etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf down-pre

Re: How to fix dns leaks?

Doesn't any dns showing up mean I have a leak? If so, then the links you've given me won't work to fix it.

Re: How to fix dns leaks?

You're right. I missed it. Can you tell me what this line of code does in a .ovpn file? I can't read terminal code very well.

Code: Select all

setenv PATH /usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin

Re: Will uninstalling default programs like Brasero hurt the OS?

I just deleted everything. Before seeing the posts just before mine. It didn't hurt anything.... I didn't think there would be a program that depended on any of them.

Re: How to fix dns leaks?

Do you know of a way to STOP dns leaks? Regardless of whether it matters or not. And is it showing the dns connected to prior connecting to the vpn, or is it showing the one after connecting to the vpn?
