Re: Webcamoid doesn't work on Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon (64bits)

Re: Newbie to backing up files

I've heard of Back in Time, but I didn't know I could back up Windows files too (which are pointed to my Seagate External Drive), once mounted. That's interesting. And this will back up all folders and subfolders? I"m willing to give it a shot. ;) As far as my system, I already use Timeshift, w...

I have a dual-boot system with Windows 7 Professional one one Disk-my original disk, and LInux Mint, our main driver on our SSD drive. I also have an external ...

Re: Confused about KeepassXC Master Password

For me, I just want the passwords for my husband's account, so he can access them, so dual accounts is probably better. We have one computer, but two user accounts. Some of our accounts are joint, but there's a lot of accounts that are for me or my husband, but not both. We've been using LastPass, b...

Confused about KeepassXC Master Password (Solved)

I'm a little confused here about KeepassXC's assigning the master password. I have Linux MInt 19.3 installed on an SSD (Bare metal, finally!), and am interested in using KeepassXC, but I wasn't exactly sure how to go about setting up the password. There are 2 users, myself and my husband. Do I use t...

Re: Installing on an SSD

Any enlightenment. I didn't see the BX500 either, but if it works, sweet!l But more than a little confused here. It works, presumably because Crucial is a branch of Micron. I still prefer the Barracuda 120 SSD. Software is made for Linux and it works good. The TRIM once a week in 10 seconds is very...

Re: Installing on an SSD

If you want a Crucial the MX500 good and so is the BX500. For software you can use Micron's Storage Executive because there's a GUI version and a Command line version for Linux. Micron's version works good with either of those, If you did decide on Crucial, I can provide a bit of help installing th...

Re: Installing on an SSD

I don't know if this is an answer or not, but I thought that Crucial's (and Samsungs, and most SSD manufacturer's managing software for just for Windows and Mac. Is this true or is there something for Linux? I ask because I'm wobbling between Samsung (if I can find a good price at Amazon for 2 TB) a...

Re: Confused about installing Seamonkey instructions

OK, newbie here, but when you say run "xed admin:///etc/apt/sources.list", does that mean run the file or put that in Terminal or what? And how do you find it, through the search in the menu? Just so I'm clear here. :) Thanks so much for your patience. The erasing the bottom line is pretty...

Re: Confused about installing Seamonkey instructions

OK. I found it. It's listed that way in Mate too. Under the Internet category. I am so happy. I guess it took a little time or I had to restart Mint in the VM. That means that I can use Linux Mint instead of MX linux. I just know Mint more than MX, though both are good. What is that part about etc/a...
