Re: How to print the contents of my download folder?

I never know how to interpret many of instructions kindly supplied. For example, is path something I must supply, as in "home/alvin/" ? or is it part of the command ? I obtained results with "ls -l path to Downloads" but they were not in the same order as the list I am trying to copy. To sum up, the...

How to print the contents of my download folder?

I have a long list of downloads that I wish to peruse in order to decide which to delete or to move to another folder. How can I print my download list in order to review it at my leisure?

Re: VLC for Linux Mint is Incomplete

My apologies for not looking hard enough. I guess that because I had VLC booted, it would be the same organization as in Windows. Thanks!

(Solved) VLC for Linux Mint is Incomplete

My Windows VLC has features that do not appear in my Linux Mint VLC. For examples, speed control of playback, snapshots from a video clip.

Is there a more complete download of VLC than the limited one I have?

How to relabel a USB stick

I am using Linux Mint 19.1 64bit cinnamon. I wish to re-label a USB stick without formatting it. Is there a renaming method? Must I do it from a terminal window? If so, how, please?

Re: Copy and / or move a file between directories

When I try to copy or to move the file, I am in Libre Office Writer. I click on the icon for opening files. A list of directories and files appears. One of them is the one I wish to copy or to move. I select it with a single mouse-click. It turns color. I left-click the file, and a little hand appea...

Copy and / or move a file between directories

I first searched in the Newbie forum and 698 pages were produced. None of the initial pages offered an answer to this simple need. I have a file in my documents folder that I wish to move and / or copy to a sub-folder. I could not do it by moving the little hand with the mouse, holding the left butt...

Copy or move a file

I searched this subject but did not find any answers. I want to copy or to move a file from my documents directory to a sub-directory. I have clicked on the filename in the directory to get the little hand; then moved the hand to the sub-directory where I released the mouse-button. That did not work.

Re: Scanner software with comprehensible documentation wanted

Lanser: I could not get the software for Vuescan to install from the software manager. Further, I found that the non-commercial version leaves a watermark for Hamrick on the printed result. For that reason, I did not bother to go to the developer's website.

Re: Scanner software with comprehensible documentation wanted

My question obviously contains the answer to yours, but I appreciate your answer. For the Windows 7 software, I had no problem with the documentation. For the Linux XSane, I could not understand the documentation to do more than choose 300 for res and lineart. They gave me poor results.
