Persistent problem needs help

Hiyall, I still have the same problem needing a fix. The main problem is that I need for someone to tell me what they need to see in order to diagnose and fix the issue. The issue: I have 3 NAS drives networked to a dual boot (Win7+Cinnamon20.1) laptop. NAS1 - Lenovo (proper NAS) running on headless...

Re: Create new menu category in Cinnamon 20.x

I've opened a new item; I want to put 'Anydesk' inside 'Remote Access'. I type 'Anydesk' inside Name. The next box asks me for a command and offers a browser to navigate to. Where do I find Mint's version of what I assume is an 'exe'?

Re: Create new menu category in Cinnamon 20.x

The 'folders' are 'Remote Access' and 'RPi'.

Re: Create new menu category in Cinnamon 20.x

I found a way around it by using Acrobat Pro on my Win7. So back to the original question. The attached pic shows 3 columns. The 'folders' I want to add are in both the left and the middle columns however neither is in there when I click the menu.

Re: Create new menu category in Cinnamon 20.x

OK. I uninstalled kSnip and installed Screengrab and got the menu (different strokes...). NOW. How did you create the big red arrow?

Re: Create new catagory in Cinnamon 20.x

I got kSnip from software manager. Same thing happening; menu disappears when I engage kSnip.

Re: Create new catagory in Cinnamon 20.x

I installed kSnip. I still can't get the menu AND kSnip up at the same time.
Fancy getting on Anydesk and doing it for me?

My screenshot program doesn't show menu on right click. Which screenshot program are you using? There are lots.

Re: Create new catagory in Cinnamon 20.x

I can see it it 'menu>configure>menu>open menu editor'. Why can't I see it in the actual menu?

Re: Warpinator Not Finding Computers

Sounds to me that you're fighting progress. Why don't you just install 20.1 on the laptop with 18? Once both have 20.1 it all works seamlessly.

Re: Asking for a hardware suggestion for a laptop

My two cent's worth (and my normal strategy), 1. Learn how to build it yourself. You'll save yourself a fortune and/or get the best, most suitable possible hardware. 2. Have it built by your local store. You can dictate what they do and the parts they use. 3. Do what you're currently doing. Price fa...

Re: What software to use for remote connection?

As far as I know, there is no GUI for any Linux-based vpn however with NordVPN, once you're set up, it's as simple as going to the Terminal and typing in 'nordvpn c us' (us is for USA. Each country has its own.) Each time you want to use it which is usually each time you turn on the computer. A kill...

Re: What software to use for remote connection?

Hi Ralco and welcome. Everyone has their preferences however all the suggested ones work in exactly the same way so in the end, it's your choice. Many can be invasive in terms of marketing or how long they give you before they terminate your session and expect you to sign up and pay. The good ones a...

Re: Warpinator Not Finding Computers

At this point in its development Warpinator is set up to be used with Mint 20x ONLY. Nothing earlier. It also won't work with other Linorum or indeed Windows nor Mac and probably not Raspberry Pi either.

Very slow speed of transfer

Hiyall, I have 3 NAS drivers. They are networked to both Win7 and Cinnamon20.1 on my dual boot computer. While speed has never been an issue for the two other NASs, transfers to the newest one (about a year old) have ALWAYS been excruciatingly slow (5 minutes for a 1Gb file). In some cases, I need t...

Re: System Commander

Welcome to the forum gh4snow, You've got it all wrong! What you need is one HDD with 2 PARTITIONS. Use the other HDD for data. Shrink the size of the Windows partition to about half the size of the HDD's capacity and then install Windows on that. Windows will always insist on being first. Don't figh...

Website instructions

Hiyall, I have now configured my system to work how I want it to run (more or less). I am now venturing in to the great unknown; I want to build a website and I don't know the first thing. I probably don't want 'automatic' or convenient solutions as I won't actually learn anything that way. I presum...
