Re: Smartphone dumb and don't care to learn (AUDIO)

Would a Behringer B112 MP3 work as a stand alone unit to play music from a USB thumb drive? I find it hard to understand why you think it might not, assuming you bothered to read any of the specifications and information published about this unit. Eg: What a great speaker! Sounds great, a whole lot...

Re: Smartphone dumb and don't care to learn (AUDIO)

For my DJ'ing I run a pair of 300W powered speakers (ie self-contained with the amp and PSU built in) from the headphone output jack on my notebook (Windows, admittedly, but there's nothing that would stop Mint doing the same... or indeed a smartphone or tablet). I also have a mixer in between, but...

Re: Smartphone dumb and don't care to learn (AUDIO)

That said, from what I gather I could use either WiFi or Bluetooth to drive some speakers from the laptop and play something like Wagner's Return of the Valkyries at an appreciable/formidable volume. I'm thinking wireless (obviously) speakers with an AC power to possibly give it some 'oomph'. I wou...

Re: Smartphone dumb and don't care to learn (AUDIO)

No takers must mean it is not 'do-able' :? In my case, "no takers" meant you do not need my help, I think the topic really does not belong in Sound, Multimedia & Codecs, I could not figure out how this relates to smartphones, and because " Ride of the Valkyries" really does not sound very good when...

Re: Smartphone dumb and don't care to learn (AUDIO)

Thank You Gentlemen- "No-Takers" To me has always meant, No one is available/able/or willing to take on a situation. But that is not the issue.. Discussion with the neighbor is a waste of time.

Re: How to make hard drives read only?

squiggles3 ; APOLOGIES for the long time lapse. Age effects concentration and I get sidelined with other priorities, sorry. Wondering (how) I "run chmod again and change permissions"? Does running it again (same) just 'reset' HDDs to operate normally again or is there another sudo chmod to run in th...

Re: Need help UNDOING a setting

all41; It is Cinnamon. "More Better Now"

MY MAIN COMPUTER IS W-10 but I have Linux/Mint/Cinnamon of three other computers and it is an awesome O/S! (seem to forget what I've learned about LINUX over time as I don't have to tweak it regularly)

Thanks for the response, You guys are great :)

Re: Need help UNDOING a setting

S3NTYN3L ; Bingo! I knew it would be a simple fix but I was just too 'simple' on the subject to flocate the right tabs. Knew when I screwed it up I shouldn't change anything but unfortunately it is not in my nature to leave well enough alone :oops: :cry:

Thanks kindly, much appreciated

(SOLVED) Need help UNDOING a setting

I have some DVDs on a hard drive and play some occasionally from a DVD disk. Use VLC to play them. Before I would click on Computer short cut on desk top and could then see all hard drives. When I opened the last DVD it asked if I wanted to designate VLC as the preferential program and I gave it the...

Re: Linux Mint 19.3/Firefox browser hacked

Firstly; remember I am new to Linux so slowly learning. (VERY subject-dumb) :oops: I found the web search for remedies but all appeared to be geared to WINDOWS not LINUX. There was a plethora of 'click here's' but was shy about clicking anything at this point. After a couple hours, got PD'd and just...

[SOLVED] Linux Mint 19.3/Firefox browser hacked

Wow! BUGGER! Thought Linux was fairly secure.. I had spent the day tinkering with VirtualBox to stumble through setting it up with VB to allow me to run a program on video filing I had purchased a couple years ago to directly access it on the Linux which I use on an entertainment computer running a ...

Re: How to make hard drives read only?

I have lost videos before (W-7) and am wary of doing it again. The HDD is 2-3T and backing it up is illogical for me as I have nothing blank to dump it onto. As apparently changing it to semi-permanent read-only is an 'iffy' thing guess its better to just leave it alone and be careful.
Thanks

Bingo! I got PO'd and installed a fresh copy of Mint 19.3 onto a wiped SSD drive. The (temporary) ethernet was hooked up and 19.3 found it. Still no wi-fi recognized. <THEN> Took the Roswell USB wi-fi adapter from the Windows 10 machine and exchanged it into the Linus machine :shock: BINGO- again, i...
