Re: Unable to 'Open as Administrator' in Caja (installed on Cinnamon)

Rather pertinent information I'd say :) Not that I have a solution for this but it would have been helpful if from the start you'd made clear you're not running Linux Mint MATE but Linux Mint Cinnamon with MATE cobbled on to it. Hopefully somebody else can suggest what package, file or configuration...

Re: Unable to 'Open as Administrator' in Caja.

OP wants to rename a file in /etc, not edit it. Open as Administrator is an action on the directory itself, to open Caja root window on the current directory.

I don't have old versions here but I think this option has always been there:

Re: Unable to 'Open as Administrator' in Caja.

What did you right-click? You should right-click an empty spot inside the directory. You can also find the Open as Administrator action in Caja's File menu (the leftmost menu in its menu bar). If you still don't see it, please share your Linux Mint version. And be sure of what you're doing! You shou...

Re: Issue installing ttf-mscorefonts-installer

Do you still have it installed? If not, reinstall it first and then proceed. With ttf-mscorefonts-installer installed, uninstall it with this command from the terminal to also remove configuration: apt purge ttf-mscorefonts-installer Then installing it anew should I think ask you to accept the licen...

Re: Linux Mint on XPS 13 Dev Edition

It ships with Ubuntu 18.04 so Linux Mint 19.3 should work as well, as it is based on that.

Re: Zombie socket

When this happens, do you have any zombie (defunct) processes in your process tree? Check with: ps aux | grep -w Z If the server you're developed is in that list, it may have started other processes that are still running or made some long running asynchronous system call. That may require the proce...

Re: Cannot install libsdl2-dev

pulseaudio is a core component of your OS, for audio mixing and such. As MrEen replied this is related because there was an update for pulseaudio that was pulled (reverted). You were quick enough to install the update so now you have a pulseaudio version (the libpulse0 etc from your output) that's t...

Re: Cannot install libsdl2-dev

libpulse-dev from the official repositories indeed depends on libpulse0 1:11.1-1ubuntu 7.4 and that is also the version of libpulse0 in the official repositories. That your system says it's going to install 1:11.1-1ubuntu 7.5 sounds like you added some repository to your system that has a newer vers...

Re: Administrator account capabilities

Which I explained; if you aren't using disk encryption they don't need to know your or root's password to get root access to your computer. Whether you were using an administrator or standard account doesn't matter for that. And the same way the account type doesn't matter when they do know your pas...

Re: programming in C software

I'd say install the package build-essential, that installs the GNU compiler toolchain. And any command you'll run that you haven't installed yet should have the shell tell you which package to install to get it. Some CentOS commands aren't usable on Linux Mint because you're using a different OS. Fo...

What would you typically use the computer for?

Re: luks recovery of key safety hole

AFAIK luks is normally set up with a passphrase only keyslot. If you've added a keyfile to automatically unlock it, yes it's on you to keep that keyfile safe. I'd only use a keyfile for automatic unlock of non-root partitions, with the keyfile stored on the root partition so encrypted at rest. You c...

Re: Hello, newbie w/ linux, farmer irl

Welcome to the forums. 1. Linux Mint should probably work fine on your laptop. I would indeed go for MATE or Xfce edition, whichever you prefer. I would also suggest to use the 64-bit version as your Pentium processor supports that and you have enough RAM. Some programs (like Google Chrome) are only...

Wikipedia lists a few: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_Qui ... ideo#Linux. You can also build Handbrake yourself with QS enabled: https://handbrake.fr/docs/en/latest/dev ... buntu.html

For encoding I think you also need to install gstreamer1.0-vaapi and i965-va-driver.

Re: Data recovery needed

If you used an image writer to write the ISO file to the disk and make it bootable, it will have overwritten the partition table and overwritten part of the disk data—up to the size of the ISO file but no more. So maybe you're in luck and the data on the ext4 partition is still on the disk. For this...
