Re: CLAMAV not working (solved)

Glad everyone was able to help this person...however, as someone who works in cyber security and pentesting telling people "Oh you never need to worry about malware or a virus on LINUX!" is very misleading and false information. Although the likely-hood of contracting malware or a virus on a UNIX ba...

Re: Invalid .desktop files

apology accepted, and I would love to do just that...however, when I just went to replicate the error to screenshot it for you guess what...it appears to have fixed itself. I had this error all day yesterday but now it appears to be repaired so I would be unable to elaborate. LOL I thought I should ...

Re: Really dislike the new root/sudo setup, does anyone else?

Well, I should know better than to try and be light hearted on a post in a gook forum. Damien gets it, everyone just got all geeked out and serious. I was hoping to start some friendly conversation in this area of the forum, get to know a few of you. Let me try this angle.... first of all, no need t...

Re: Invalid .desktop files

I apologize but I think that is a rather strict interpretation of the forum rules. This is not off topic far as I can see, it is either the same issue with a different application or definitely related to the issue first announced on this topic. I merely asked an additional question to get a better ...

Re: Really dislike the new root/sudo setup, does anyone else?

Wow, see! Lots of great ideas I could live with. If I stay with Mint, and I think I will...I will probably make my own install of it eventually so setups are just run and done.

Re: Really dislike the new root/sudo setup, does anyone else?

LOL, yes I know and agree with all you said Damien. However, I would MUCH prefer the old way during setup. When I install I already know everything I need to setup and install and thus I end up putting in my password for sudo 50 million times. Perhaps I will just start making a temp root login durin...

Hello from Hackerland...

So I am normally a regular Parrot Security OS user, and to be honest I kind of stayed away from LINUX Mint because so many people started using it that it really gave me that EWWWW a NEW FAD feeling. LOL However, recently Parrot Devs accidentally screwed up their repositories and have been taking so...

Really dislike the new root/sudo setup, does anyone else?

So I really miss the days when I could just sign in as root and get stuff done without having to sudo every freaking time I do anything. I would rather things be like the old days where I have a REAL root login and a user login.

Just wondering, does anyone else find this new system annoying?

Re: Invalid .desktop files

Would that still be the case if I were getting an error telling me "Invalid .desktop file detected"?
One of the things I love about this OS is no errors and this is really irritating me. Any suggestions or help on this specific topic would be greatly appreciated.
