Re: Reputable Free DNS Server Sites?

I use opennic, https://www.opennic.org/, which is listed in your link, so that's something. Whether bestdns.org is reputable or not, I don't know.

Did you ensure that ' FireTray preferences -> Mail -> Show_tray icon only when new mail ' is not checked?

You can do this in xed also, probably many other apps that tab.

Re: Is Dell XPS 15 good for Linux Mint?

I recall reading somewhere that the latest XPS models don't have a Matte screen option, (at least the 1920x1080 models) if that makes a difference.

Re: No File or Directory Found...with a twist

Since the procedure states <license file path> specifies one or more full path-names to the license file(s). <license log file path> is the full path-name to the debug log file. I'd be inclined to try the following, omitting the file names. ./lmgrd -c /usr/local/ADS2017_Update1/Licensing -l /usr/loc...

Re: No File or Directory Found...with a twist

Hi Mike, There shouldn't be any security policy with a default Mint install that would stop the execution of lmgrd, I think he's referring to selinux ( that RadHat & CentOS use). I noticed that your command ./lmgrd -c /usr/local/ADS2017_Update1/Licensing/54ee75a5845f_20180907083004.lic - 1 /usr/loca...

Re: Installing driver problems

Well, you could try and get the 4.4 kernel using Deepakdeshp's idea after you get your repo problem sorted but there is no guaranty it'll work. From the links in my first post, it doesn't look promising. We do know that the 304 driver is available and works with Mint 18.3 so, it's up to you. I've ne...

Re: Odd DNS Problem

It looks to me like you're using systemd-resolved which I didn't think Mint 18.3 used, although Mint 19 does. Form man systemd-resolved ... /ETC/RESOLV.CONF Four modes of handling /etc/resolv.conf (see resolv.conf(5)) are supported: · systemd-resolved maintains the /run/systemd/resolve/stub-resolv.c...

Re: Installing driver problems

Your inxi output says your graphics card is a GeForce 7025, therefore you need the 304 driver.

Re: Installing driver problems

Hi Mark, I did some snooping around for you and came up with this link that points to this link basically saying that Nvidia 304 is no longer supported by Ubuntu 18.04. (Note that Mint 19 is based on Ubuntu 18.04) So you might want to consider downloading Mint 18.3 iso, do a fresh install and stick ...

Re: Update manager error. Why?

I think you're talking about the auto-update feature in Update Manager, take a look in Update Manager's Edit - Preferences - Auto-refresh and you'll find the default settings are to refresh 10 minutes after boot, and every two hours there after. So once the mirror clears itself the next auto-refresh...

Re: ISP router and VPN?

Is it possible to do it more simply by using the firewall in Mint? It would be nice, but I don't see a pre-configured 'app' in gufw and the command sudo ufw app list only shows cups on my system. I'm not sure how I would find the ip address of the VPN I am using. It should be in the .ovpn file supp...

Ok, so no gui, that means we'll have to go 'commando' and set up some firewall rules via the cli to force everything except your local lan through tun0.

Re: ISP router and VPN?

What section of ipleak.net shows your local ip address? If it's the WebRTC section, scroll down to the bottom of the page and follow the procedure to block WebRTC in FireFox.
