Re: Does Nemo lag or freeze things when loading large image folders?

Does switching from Nemo to Caja affect anything else? I've only been using Mint 19.3 for about a year and have no experience with other distros or desktop environments (Caja comes with Mate, correct?). I have an external 2Tb HD with just under 1 Tb of images (about 250K files of mostly BMP files) E...

But once I found out that the Mozilla Foundation was working with Goggle, And DDG was working with both, (DDG uses Google search results.) I quit using DDG and have moved to MetaGer. The Germans are headed in the righ...

Re: Do you use VPN, which one, and why

I am in the midst of setting up a VPN and thought my processes and thinking might might be of interest 1. Yeah, I'm the guy with the aluminium hat. On the internet, I trust NO ONE! In the real world I trust no government (Big Brother is very VERY real) or private, for profit organizations. (And I us...

Restore Home Rights Denied by Root Back to Home Ownership:

Nope. That didn't do it. The owner is still showing as Root.

File ownership issues

In trying to install a couple of fonts manually, I did not have permission to add fonts to the fonts folder. In attempting to change that, Nemo tells me that "You are not the owner so you can not change these permissions". In fact I get the same response to all the files/folders in the Fil...

Re: Linux graphics software for Professionals

Yeah. The 64 bit editing is a considerable part of what I need. Irfanview has a version that does 64 bit editing. And once you get into the addon's, there is more than a few filters. Still can't get it to do smoothing/blending worth a darn though. I guess at this point, I'll just bite the bullet and...

Re: Linux graphics software for Professionals

I've tried Gimp under Windows and it's good. But not quite to the PSP/Photoshop level. That statement tells me you know nothing about Gimp. I suggest you learn how to use gimp as it is a professional quality image editor. Unfortunately no tool can overcome the user's lack of skill. As an image edit...

I and a professional still photographer and illustrator making the switch from Windows 7 to Mint (19.3). My question is about Linux graphics processing software for the professional.

Re: ReCaptcha, Privacy, and Google

Just my 2 cents worth but . . . I tend to agree. Granted, I'm just a newb to the world of Linux (and to this forum). But I have avoided anything to do with Google for years. I also run NoScripts and block anything I even suspect is connected to Google. And Recaptcha has repeated been demonstrated to...
