Re: No CD / DVD burning program in Linux Mint 18.3 MATE ?

No, I was confused too ;)

Edit : Could it be possible that it's uninstalled by 1 of the other programs?

No CD / DVD burning program in Linux Mint 18.3 MATE ? [solved]

Today I had to burn a DVD. 1 problem, I could not find a burning program in the menus.
Is there really no burning program installed by default or did I overlooked it?
Btw, I installed Brasero, so I got the job done ;)

Re: Who no longer trusts or uses Facebook?

I never trusted facebook. But I use it to stay in touch with a few friends who live in other countries. My page is "private" post are only visible for friends (and $uckerberg ofcourse 8) ). Yeah I hate it, but sometimes it's convenient.

I'm not shure if I'm going to delete my facebook. I still have some friends on it that don't want to move to something else, and I want to stay in touch with them.
So probably I'm going to deactivate and only log in once a month or with birthdays / holidays

Re: updating TOMTOM GO

3 Get a Windows10 ISO and install it in a VirtualBox appliance. I think there's a good chance this will work. If it does work, you owe Microsoft for the copy of Windows you are using. When I had a TomTom GO 300 I used Virtualbox with Win XP I had to make an USB filter in Virtualbox otherwise the GO...

Re: EBook Reader For Linux Mint 18.1

Kobo readers are good, I have a Touch, about 6 years old, still works great. Sync with Calibre Linux is not a problem.
Icarus is also a good brand https://www.icarusreader.com/

Re: Ubuntu wil standaard diagnostische data gaan verzamelen

Popcon standaard mee instaleren met als doel om een bepaald gebruikers gedrag te monitoren ongeacht wat ze er verder mee doen is gewoon een schending v.w.b privacy. Popcon kan wel degelijk nuttig zijn. Als uit die gegevens blijkt dat bv Gimp niet meer geberuikt wordt en er een ander programma geïns...

Re: Brother hl-1112 can't print file over certain size

Also a certain pdf file wouldn't print on my Mint system, printing the file from Zorin OS gave no issues at all. 2 systems here run Zorin OS and mine runs Mint and I'm the only one with issues. Will also switch from 32 bit to 64 so hopefully this solves the problem. Which Zorin version do you have,...
