Nextcloud Integration

Please cover Nextcloud integration with Linux Mint, especially as a possible alternative to Samba (but out in the cloud, with SSL-encryption). Here you can currently get a free Nextcloud account, to try out on a Beta basis: https://operationtulip.com/ Here's how to mount an SSL-encrypted WebDAV shar...

Re: MS loves Linux? What proof would YOU like to see of that?

Who cares what Microsoft does? We have something better. :mrgreen: Microsoft can and regularly does make our lives hell (though various breakages in compatibility), so I think we need to care at least that much. For example, Microsoft invented UEFI, then aggressively pushed all motherboard manufact...

MS loves Linux? What proof would YOU like to see of that?

Microsoft has made several gestures of goodwill towards the Linux community recently. They would like for us all to forget their past of loathing Linux, and fighting Linux tooth and nail pretty much to keep it off PCs. What would YOU like to see Microsoft do, in order for them to prove that their ne...

Re: What sends noobs running back to Windows?

This is very good post and an excellent point. Linux needs to heed this warning. Thanks! I personally feel that Nextcloud is the answer. I just installed a new Nextcloud 14 server, and it only took me two days (installing from a snap, on a rented $5 US/month VPS server with only 1GB of RAM, which i...

Re: Linux encryption and dual booting 'alongside' windows

I too am a fan of "one OS per hard drive". I never dual-boot with Windows any longer, it's just too much of a risk of problems down the road. I have one Linux Mint 19 install taking up my laptop's entire SSD. I also have Ubuntu Mate 18.04 installed on a good-quality USB stick (Sandisk Ultra Flair 64...

Re: Linux on a tablet

The reason why Linux works well on laptops and desktops is because the AMD64 architecture (and other related chips commonly found in PC's) are far more consistent and well-supported across all the PC vendors. The ARM world is way different. It's a nightmare for Linux (ignoring Android here) to gain ...

Re: What sends noobs running back to Windows?

Check your phone settings - the USB configuration may well be hidden in Developer Settings. Which in turn you may need to enable. Go to About Phone is settings and repeatedly tap on Build Number (7 times). You want MTP to be the protocol. I turned on the developer mode, and in Settings -> Developer...

That's unfortunate. It works for me; it also works for my mother I've got a Samsung J1 Mini Prime Android 6 phone. I just snapped a photo with it, plugged the phone into the USB port of my Linux Mint 19.1 laptop, and unfortunately, neither Nemo nor Shotwell recognizes the phone, nor let's me downlo...

Re: What sends noobs running back to Windows?

My father ditched Linux when the photos he took on his Android phone couldn't be easily downloaded to his Linux Mint Laptop, after he plugged it into the laptop with a USB cable . All his non-Linux-using friends and family had no trouble doing that seemingly simple task. I would say the biggest sho...

Yes and No.

Are Linux distributions really so different from one another? Yes and No . Yes , in the sense that they favour different DE's, which can have rather different philosophies. Some can be really sensible , geared to what users already expect (based on their past experience in Windows or OS X), A.K.A. G...

Hello from Malaysia

I'm Esbeeb, a longtime Linux user, since Redhat 4.2. I've used Linux Mint on several occasions in the past, but never signed up in the forum. So far in my new LM19.2, I'm loving the BTRFS integration with Timeshift to make System backups. A great tool! Thanks to whomever wrote it. :D This is the fir...
