Re: Differences? Update to Firefox 67 Ubuntu or Mint ???

Thank you very much smurphos ! I haven't done any comprehensive study between the differences of the new v67 Ubuntu Firefox browser, my older v64 Mint, and the new v67 Mint, but there are a few differences, and some must just be the product of the updated version. The Mint version sets the home page...

Re: Question about Linux kernel and OS development in general

jaakoppi71 ... If your machine can boot from USB or media cards, you can run a LiveMedia system right from the device. I boot Mint from locked SD cards or a locked Kanguru USB drive on my ancient (diskless) HP dx2400 Core 2 Duo. That way I always have a 'virgin' operating system which I consider to...

Re: Print one page of pdf

Use the following for your file name and it will work from anywhere ... well, nearly ... in a terminal session type "pwd" to see what directory you are in. It will work unless the file is in another user's Desktop and that user doesn't allow you access. I'm guessing it is in YOUR Desktop ??? "mint" ...

Re: Seems Mint 17 Cinnamon "Qiana" doesn't exist!

Hexeta ... Moem evidently doesn't have fun with USB LiveMedia systems, which is what I use exclusively. The answer is NO - none of the codecs nor Flash are installed in the default system, which is not really an "installation" on a LiveMedia. "Burning" the ISO onto LiveMedia is just a special load ...

Re: Seems Mint 17 Cinnamon "Qiana" doesn't exist!

Hexeta ... I don't know if you've discovered it yet, but as of LM18, Adobe Flash and the commercial video codecs are no longer installed in the default Mint system, so VLC is stripped of most of it's functionality. See: LM18 Release Notes Installing multimedia codecs offline To download the multime...

abrogard: I went through this recently when I built a LM 18.3 LiveMedia system. I kept having to switch back to LM 15 to use my HP-5000 parallel port printer because it was the last version that would support it natively.
