Help Removing an Installer Program from Downloads Directory

I downloaded a Java Developer tool (Eclipse) from a trusted site, but for some reason, I cannot delete the installer file from my downloads folder. The file seems to be locked (with no permissions), and using the rm eclipse-installer command simply returns: 'Can not remove eclipse-installer: Is a di...

Re: Fresh install of LM Cinnamon 19.2 freezes randomly

It seems that turning off the internal wifi has fixed the issue. Thanks for your help!

Re: Sharing Notebooks on Tomboy Notes

I guess it is my fault for not conducting a thorough search to begin with, but it doesn't mean I didn't try to figure it out before asking. Sometimes, for a new user, it is hard to even know what to search for. Again, being new and having many new concepts to understand, it is an intimidating learni...

Re: Sharing Notebooks on Tomboy Notes

Look, I'm still very new to Linux, and there are many intimidating factors to the switch from Windows. I'm still trying to understand how things correlate between Operating Systems. I frequently answer questions for people in my line of work that surely anyone could Google, but sometimes information...

Re: Bugs in Cinnamon 19.2

Well the problem is, in order for me to create an account on the community.linuxmint.com website, the registration page is asking me to verify I am not a bot by going to the chat which is indicated on the Welcome screen which opens when I start Linux. This takes me to the IRC chat. So the issue rema...

Re: Fresh install of LM Cinnamon 19.2 freezes randomly

You are amazing. Thank you for the fast responses. I don't know if this will fix the issue or not, but I will report back after a day or two. In the meantime, if anyone has any suggestions on what might be causing my internal Wifi to not work properly on Linux, I am looking for a solution there as w...

Re: Fresh install of LM Cinnamon 19.2 freezes randomly

Ok I was trying to figure out how to do that earlier. My in-built wifi works good on Windows, but for some reason does not work unless I am right next to the router with Linux. Any ideas why that might be? I started using the external Wifi adapter because of this. I would prefer that I could fix tha...

Sharing Notebooks on Tomboy Notes

Does anyone know how I can share entire notebooks from Tomboy notes across platforms? Say if I want to share via email, how would I do this? Is Tomboy based on a file system that can be shared like any other file, and if so, how do I access the note files? Also, does anyone know of a program that wi...

Re: Bugs in Cinnamon 19.2

When I search the DroneBL link, it provides a small set of info regarding the blacklist, which I have sent for a request to remove, but I'm still just not understanding the purpose or reasoning, except that it provides this under "Why": IRC spam drone (litmus/sdbot/fyle) Is this like some kind of sp...

Re: Bugs in Cinnamon 19.2

Thank you very much Larry78723. The first issue was corrected with the setting change you suggested. The chat issue is not something I can figure out. I was trying to access the chat channels from the main panel in LinuxMint that appears upon startup, and following the connect instructions on the li...

Glad to finally make the switch!

Hello Linux users! I, like most people, have always been limited as a Windows user, and the idea of switching to anything else has been a daunting ideal. l had several friends show me various Ubuntu OS, but still was intimidated due to my lack of understanding and the loss of that which I am familia...

Bugs in Cinnamon 19.2

I posted a thread earlier about the random freezing of the OS and needing to reboot the computer by powering down. Aside from this main issue, there are a couple other small issues: 1) When typing text, the indicator moves and sometimes selects text at random, causing loss of previously typed text. ...

[Solved] Fresh install of LM Cinnamon 19.2 freezes randomly

I am very new to Linux and have been struggling to address some "bugs" (for lack of better words or understanding). The biggest issue so far is that my computer periodically freezes up and I must restart by powering down the computer. I've never had this issue when running Windows, but I'm determine...
