Re: Can't connect to wi-fi

Since the work at home situation, ALL internet connections have been very slow. The reason is that both those businesses that are on line and the people working from home are using up a lot of bandwidth, I usually get on line later in the evening when businesses are closed and mainly private people ...

LMDE4 internet (Resolved)

I have a desktop with dual boot, LMDE4 and LM19.3, when I boot up with LM19.3 I get everything correctly, internet etc.. When I boot up wit LMDE4 I don't get any internet. As I said this is dual boot so the wiring is the same. Any ideas?
Forgot to say that I just updated to NordLynx on my VPN.

Re: LMDE 4 “Debbie” released!

I just installed LMDE 4 as a dual boot on my system, I ran into the following issues. 1. It would not let me install on the same drive as my LM 19.3, it wanted to erase the disk and start from scratch. I ended up installing it on one of my extra disks. 2 After completing the installation I configure...

Re: Upgrade Libreoffice

Am running LM 19.3, just upgraded to LibreOffice 6.4.3 using a Flatpack. Now I am hearing some disconcerting remarks about using Flatpacks. How bad is a flatpack installation in this instance?

Re: Gimp immage manipulation

This is a follow up to the GIMP question. Trying different ways to appease my loved one (newly married, 57 years). How do you flow text around an image in LibreOffice?

Re: Gimp immage manipulation

I don't think I was clear enough, I would print out the sheets with the image on it and then she would type her letter and print it out on the pre-printed pages.

Gimp immage manipulation (Resolved)

My wife wants to print out a Christmas letter, she got fancy paper with a Christmas border. Now she would like to print a faint background image in the middle of the paper similar to a watermark and than type her letter over that. Does anyone have any ideas on how to print a faint image like that?
