Re: Problem with plank docklet

Hello, if I'm understanding your question right, to show the list of applications in plank you need to "right" mouse click on the icon, not left click like one would normally think. I had the same problem with the applications menu when I added it to the dock. Hope that helps.

Re: Software to Convert DVD to MP4 or other conversions <SOLVED>

You should be able to download it here: https://github.com/swl-x/MystiQ/releases/download/continuous/MystiQ-master--603-x86_64.AppImage . It appears the original website to download from was removed. The link I provided is from their github source. Oh, and be sure you also have ffmpeg packages insta...

Re: Software to Convert DVD to MP4 or other conversions <SOLVED>

Agreed when it comes to Handbrake. A great website where I installed it from was found here: https://www.tweaking4all.com/video/rip-dvd-blu-ray/linux-handbrake-copy-a-dvd-to-mp4-or-mkv-file/ . Though it's an older article, it worked for me on LM20 to get the latest install as well as all the require...

Re: Warpinator not starting

The above post by LanceM is confirmed working. Worked on my PC and my daughter's PC. Apparently from what I've read, this should be fixed in the next update.

Re: Return Ownership To Root

I ran into a similar situation on my daughter's PC, and this older post really helped out allowing me to restore privileges back to root as well as myself. User gm10 states it correctly as this was what I used to restore root. I couldn't do anything in my system - couldn't run sudo commands, couldn'...

Re: Mouse Pointer Moves to upper left part of the screen every minute

Hello, typically I see this myself on my touchscreen.... usually a good cleaning of the screen while the PC is off is a good start. Usually my mouse cursor will jump (sometimes erratically). I solve this by cleaning the screen. Usually when dust piles up in a particular spot, it will generate more h...

Re: Ripping DVDs to .iso [Not Solved]

I'm wondering as well, if maybe some technical/ mechanical issue is going on with your DVD Rom Drive? could be a possibility....especially to get errors on it. Maybe the Optical lens could be dirty? Sorry I cannot be of much more service to you....best of luck and hope you find a solution! :)

Re: Ripping DVDs to .iso [Not Solved]

Hmmm....did you open up the program Disks to determine the device name/ location of your DVD ROM Drive? Like I said, on mine, is is located as dev/sr0......your's maybe different.....maybe it could be dev/sr1 for example (don't use that, you'll have to figure out...the device name/location in the fo...

Re: Ripping DVDs to .iso [Not Solved]

Hello, I used the following command through terminal (works quickly and flawlessly), I was having issues too awhile back with ripping DVD's to ISO. Giving a heads up, "IMAGE.iso" should be the name of the ISO file to which you plan to name - so make sure you change the name, otherwise, you...

Re: Another garbage news release - Linux is the worst OS, vulnerable to crashing

Also, may I add that this sounds like an attempt for Microsoft and their fan base to sway customers/ clients back after their abandonment of the Windows 7 OS - as many users ended up migrating to different various Linux Distros. When I read an article that highlighted Windows 7 end of support, sever...

I then disabled the PPA, as I'm already happy with what I have on my system from the oibaf reposito...
