Re: How to play a music folder at once?

The way was in "Other Application"... And I think I've made a mistake: first time I tried, I set Audacious as default program to open a folder, thinking that only that folder, "Music" were affected to that set. But clicking to open other folders than the Music, any folder, I got errors. So I get bac...

How to play a music folder at once?

Hi, I'd like to have an option in a folder's right click context menu to play every music's files inside that folder.

Re: Cinnamon, MATE or xfce?

For a reason I don't know, as I installed a Mint like the mine in my son's notebook, it became a little slower than the mine, even after I've applied Pjotr's "10 things after installing", maybe because of the difference of their brands. Both are Intel I3, 4GB RAM, 1TB mechanical HD, mine is HP, him'...

Hi, I've downloaded a complement of MKVToolNix called "Inviska_MKV_Extract-10.1-x86_64.AppImage" and as App Manager doesn't show that program (MKVExtract or Inviska MKVExtrac) I'd like to learn how to install that.

Re: Issue on subtitle program.

Although GNOME Subtitle is not show in the installed list, Am I correct in assuming that you are not using LM 19.2? Because I fixed that for 19.2, so it should be shown in the list there. No, as "System Information" advise, I'm in 19.1, yet. But now I've found instructions in Internet on how to upd...

Re: Wine or something else?

If you do not want to dual boot, use a VM or wine there is at least one subtitle program in the Mint Repository. Called subtitleeditor. It can be installed via synaptic and runs on Mint. I've never used it so can say if it will fit your needs but it's worth a try. In fact this web page offers sever...

P.S.: I've read your article about Virtual Machine, dear Pjotr, but I think it's could be a little bit harder than the Wine. This could not be farther from the truth. Setting up a VM - your best bet is VirtualBox as it's really simple to install/configure - is way easier than you think. Thank you a...
