Re: Wi-Fi not working in Sonya

Good to hear that you've fixed it yourself. :)
Maybe it can still be optimized a bit. For that, post the requested output....

Sidenote: hiding the SSID of your network is a bad idea and even decreases security:

Re: browser: alternatives to Firefox 57

In my opinion, there are no realistic alternatives to the "Big Three" Firefox, Chrome and Chromium (Big Four, if you count Opera in as well).... The issue here is security. Only the big web browsers have enough manpower in their dev teams, to keep them secure. Given that your web browser ...

Re: Linux Laptop auf Schadsoftware überprüfen

Hallo, eine andere Frage, die vielleicht etwas offtopic ist, aber trotzdem mit der Sicherheit zu tun hat: bei Windows wird alles aufgezeichnet was man macht auf dem PC, ist das auch bei LinuxMint so? Falls ja, wie kann man das löschen? MfG Aloha In Linux Mint wird man nicht nachspioniert. :) Wohl r...

Re: How to make linux single from dual boot?

Your recommendation will have the Linux / partition remain at or near the end of the disk = slower system. That has already been debunked by catweazel, so I won't comment on that. Also, your recommendation will likely bork the whole system because the Windows Boot Partition where Grub is installed ...

Re: How to make linux single from dual boot?

Best to backup your data and reinstall LM as a single-boot. That's definitely not necessary. Best (most simple) approach: boot Mint from the DVD, launch GParted, and format the Windows partition(s) into a big storage partition (EXT4). You can use that for "dumb" storage from then on. Then...

Re: Linux Laptop auf Schadsoftware überprüfen

Allerdings ist der PC nie um 3:00 eingeschaltet und ich habe nirgendwo die Info gefunden, ob dann beim Einschalten nach U...

Re: Linux Laptop auf Schadsoftware überprüfen

Das Artikel habe ich selber geschrieben (es ist meine Webseite), und es ist aktuell. :)

Sicherheit ist sehr wichtig in Linux. Daher bekommt man auch fast täglich (und oft mehrmals pro Tag) neue Aktualisierungen, anstatt einmal pro Monat (wie bei Windows: "Patch Tuesday").

On November 16, 2017, I updated Mint 17.3 using the update manager. In the past, I have used the update manager several times successfully. However, this time, Cinnamon would not load and Mint went into fallback mode. I spent hours trying to get Cinnamon going and ended up completely reinstalling M...

Re: System freezes and stability problems - Mint 18.2

I didn't realize that installing the Grub Customizer wasn't a good idea and it was installed for convenience, not by necessity. I'll uninstall it. That won't help.... The changes it has made, cannot be undone so easily. At least not in a way that I know of. More information: https://sites.google.co...

Re: Shall we live OR Shall we die?

In 100 years we'll all be dead anyway. :mrgreen:

But it's a fake scare: in 1999 it was claimed that there was a small possibility of a hit, not a certain nor even a probable hit. Which has been changed since, to a sure flyby. So no luck, you'll still have to pay off your mortgage. :lol:
