Re: Why is 19.3 a bodge?

The upgrade from 19.2 to 19.3 messed my laptop up a bit. It seemed to remove programs I added to help with battery life. All is good now ... except my laptop is dual boot with Windoze 10 and Windoze seems to run around 45 mins longer with a full battery charge :?:

I do mine on Credit Karma and then let my accountant review my work. She only charges me 10 bucks to review it when I do most of the work 8)

Yep. That's what I did and now it appears empty. However, now I noticed that I can't access System Settings!
Never had that happen :( I’m sure tried another reboot. Do you have a newer Timeshift that you can run to restore back a few days

Re: Linux Mint 19.3 'Tricia' What are your First Impressions?

My laptop upgrade from 19.2 to 19.3 didn't go real smooth. I lose a lot of programs I had in my lower 'panel'. Firefox also had all my plug-in missing :?: After restoring everything I'm happy now

Only complaint is the search function isn't that great but I have ways around using it.

Re: RING Security Doorbell

I think y'all are missing something. The so called hacking of Ring was simple lack of understanding on the user part not some zero day or vulnerability thing. If any of these folks had set their systems up with a strong random passphrase and username that wasn't used at all eslewhere they'd have no...

RING Security Doorbell

Anyone found a way to run the application to view a RING security doorbell camera? RING makes an app for MAC, Windows and Android. I don't have WINE installed and really don't want to install it. I've searched here and on the internet a bit but really only found unsecured stuff.

Thanks

Re: linux mint19.1 cannot boot

Mine did this after I installed the Nividia driver through 'Drive Manager'. I don't have a solution how to fix this. I just did a restore from an image backup.
