Re: ClamAv

Don't install any antivirus, not even ClamAV. It's only potentially useful for mail servers and such, otherwise it's useless and even harmful(!) for your security: https://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/security#TOC-Antivirus-software-and-rootkit-removers (item 1.1, left column) Use this...

[SOLVED] Command line needed

I want to rename a whole bunch of files at once, in the following way: Current name (example for Atril): for_use_MATE_atril_nl.po Should become: atril.po As you can see, it boils down to stripping some parts of the current names. Who can help me with the right command line for renaming all files in ...

Re: ransomware

Next time, don't let such Windows oriented malware scare you: simply shutdown Firefox (if need be, forcibly by means of xkill) and relaunch it. Remember that you're running Linux. 8)

Re: Levels on Update Manager? [SOLVED]

Firefox is tagged level 3, not because it affects other system parts or other applications (it obviously doesn't), but because it's such a vitally important application. Where do you take this from? Obviously not from the update manager itself, which says in the preferences for level 3: Apply with ...

Hope not. It is a security disaster.

It's a bit unfortunate that Firefox is level 3 at all, in the new Update Manager.... But this incident seems to be a glitch which will surely be repaired.

It's weird then, that my USB dongle with this exact same wifi chipset (which I bought dirt-cheap in a Chinese web store) works instantly and flawlessly on all of my Mint machines. :shock: Network Manager identifies it as MediaTek 802.11 n WLAN (same as yours).

Re: Levels on Update Manager?

Safest approach? Only level 1, 2 and 3. A bit less secure than when you install levels 4 and 5 as well, but it's still acceptable. A lot more secure than Windows. :) Note that the level system has changed considerably in the new Update Manager in the upcoming Mint 18.2. I'm not quite sure whether t...
