Re: HOw to remove Intrusive ads on Android

All it takes is reading the words "contains ads". again NO IT"S NOT that simple. again not all apps are that forthcoming. even though the app store supposedly vets everything PLENTY of apps get by th...

I hear horror stories about "ad cleaners" so am looking for recommendations of what to do.
Backup your treasured stuff, factory reset, and don't install any software from the app store that contains ads.

Re: How can i dual boot linux mint with another Linux OS ?

Did you run the update grub in the Parrot install? If so, you should on next boot see Mint as an option too. Run it and do the same in Mint, if you prefer it to be the first boot choice. That way either system can boot both as desired. actually from the looks of the install for parrot i'd install i...

Re: How can i dual boot linux mint with another Linux OS ?

let's start with your system specs first. specifically what mobo do you have. i ask cause this day and age you should be installing os's in efi / gpt mode. but still a lot of peeps with legacy systems.

Re: Linux Mint 19.2 “Tina” Cinnamon released!

Also, death to Flatpak (and Snaps, and AppImage) If it's not in the central package repository, it doesn't belong on a system. One of the biggest security benefit of Linux is its one central package repository on a system keeping everything patched. I fear we are losing this in an attempt to placat...

Re: Linux Mint 19.2 “Tina” Cinnamon released!

Can I finally upgrade to the latest supported kernel using "apt dist-upgrade"? One of my biggest frustrations with Mint is that kernel updates are separate from the rest of the package tree. I use this workaround , but I really wish I didn't have to. My expectation regarding kernel upgrades is that...

Re: Can't install kubuntu-desktop on Mint 19.1 XFCE

After moving from Cinnamon to XFCE I decided I wanted at least one 'showy' Linux OS on one of my computers. I'm now running Kubuntu 18.04 on my Dell Optiplex and my word it is nice. No offence to Cinnamon users but, aesthetically at least, and regardless of amount of tweaking, Kubuntu/KDE really do...

actually the ppa / install will look at your hardware and chose the best driver. once installed if there is newer you can chose to use it and the vulkan / mesa drivers will update. i was on the nvidia 390 driver right after installing, then went to the 418, and now the 430. if no one post the ppa fo...
