Is Ubuntu still supporting Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin)?

What version of Linux Mint are you on? If it's LM 13 (Ubuntu 12.04 base), know that support ended nearly two years ago.

That's because each Flatpak is a self-contained package of all its own supporting files. That's the price you pay for their convenience. :)

Re: FireJail: Firefox shows blank screens only

Should I get this from PPA? You could, but it doesn't look like the PPA is carrying the latest version (0.9.58.2 released on 2019-02-08), but does have the one prior. You can download the latest from here , but then you'll have to update it on your own. I say try the PPA, and if it works for you, g...

Re: Libre Office Base

Suggest you mark this 'solved', but curious to know why the 32Bit version didn't work properly. That is indeed curious, as a 32-bit OS should be able to access all of your 4 GBs of RAM. Regardless, a 64-bit OS is what you should be using with a 64-bit infrastructure, so I'm glad that worked out. If...

It's my understanding that you can copy the .deb files from the /var/cache/apt/archives directory on one computer, to the /var/cache/apt/archives directory on another computer and install via the software manager (or otherwise) there.

Re: how to access desktop mint from mobile app - remote desktop

philotux's idea is a option as well. The bottom line is, as long as the mobile app and the desktop app are using the same protocol, it should work.

Re: how to access desktop mint from mobile app - remote desktop

no, i am not using rdp for the linux machines, when i look at the remmina settings, it says im using VNC to connect with port 5900 I would say that's your issue with using the RDP mobile app, as VNC uses the RFB protocol. :) I don't have Remmina in front of me, but there's got to be a way to set it...

Re: Problem when verifying ISO

I should have been more specific. I was on my college network and it was probably the firewall blocking the port. So "hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80" is the only link that works.

If the partition has been actually formatted, then this might be a challenge. :| Regardless, augmenting Pierre's response, I've heard that PhotoRec and TestDisk are helpful in this regard, though I don't have any experience with them.

Looks like they're working on version 5.0 now. There was a post on it last month (January 2019).
