Re: Mint to tails.

The answer is no. Bios is a electronic chip with a firmware installed on your motherboard, linux doesn't have nothing to do with it AFAIK.

Re: Anything to replace Flash yet? No Solution possible

I have read on internet somewhere, I don't remember now that Google Chrome and Adobe itself will stop support for Flash Player in 2020, maybe if you Google it you can find some news about it!

Re: Usernames

Mine?, you guessed it right, for the music that I love the most, also because of the canadian-american animation movie "Heavy Metal" which I love very much!

Re: Dropbox? What is it?

Dropbox is a cloud storage for files that you want to share with a person or a group online, do not use it for personal files storage, just for files that are not private and you want to share with someone else, hope this helps answering your questions!

Re: Gratitude.

Thank you too for this post, it was beautiful, also thanks to figures like Richard M. Stallman and Eric S. Raymond, because for their beliefs in free and open source software, we are all able to use this marvelous operative system called Gnu/Linux!

@phd21 is correct you do need python installed but i'd assume that all linux have this installed. still have no idea what qbittorrent you use, is it ppa or repo version? or what version of mint and desktop.
qbittorrent from LM repos, LM 18.3 Cinnamon 64bit.

Re: "qbittorrent" search function not working!

Hi "heavy metal", You do not need to search through a torrent client's search function because you can always use a browser to search for torrent links and open them in the torrent client. Yes I know, but the search function on qbittorrent is so convenient and faster than searching on internet! Per...

Re: LMDE 2 mate for a newbie?

This thread caught my eye as I just tried LMDE early this morning. First thing I did was install Gufw, but it didn't show up under Preferences like it does in 17.3. That was enough for me to go back to 17.3. Hi there, have you tried running Gufw from Terminal? even in Debian you have to run it from...
