Re: Google to charge Europe

The problem with Android app bundling is that the consumer doesn't get a say or choice in what web services they get tied to, namely Google's. And the phone manufacturer also gets their hands tied as to what they can remove or replace. That doesn't compare with Linux distros. Yes, sure, there are pa...

Re: Meet Helm, the startup taking on Gmail with a server that runs in your home

I'm hard pressed to name people that would care about this and not have the technical know-how to follow one of the many tutorials for doing the same with a Raspberry Pi.

Re: Meet Helm, the startup taking on Gmail with a server that runs in your home

The startup is betting that people will be willing to pay $500 to purchase the box and use it for one year to host some of their most precious assets in their own home. The service will cost $100 per year after that. Holy moly, that's a lot. That $ 100 buys you a personal gateway hosted on Amazon c...

Re: on shutdown a number of apps are not responding

No idea why so many applications could be stuck. AT-SPI is for accessibility. Are you using anything like desktop zoom, on screen keyboard, screen reader or such? You might try disabling AT-SPI though I'm hard pressed to explain how AT-SPI could cause all those other applications you refer to get st...

Re: Firefox ESR 52.9 last one on Jessie (LMDE 2)?

You must have installed firefox-esr manually. As you've investigated, Debian jessie only has firefox-esr 52 package and LMDE 2 only has firefox 60 package (though it is also the ESR). If you want the newer Firefox, install the firefox package from LMDE 2. Why Debian jessie is stuck with Firefox 52 I...

Something is broken on your end. LMDE 2 has Firefox ESR 60.2, see: http://packages.linuxmint.com/search.php?release=Betsy§ion=any&keyword=firefox You must have somehow locked yourself to Firefox ESR 52.9. Suggest to start with you sharing the output of these two commands run from the terminal. Y...

Re: * LibSSH Flaw Allows Hackers to Take Over Servers Without Password

You're only affected if you have libssh-4 or libssh-gcrypt-4 package on your system and then only if you're running a publicly reachable SSH server on your system. The libssh-2 package is something else and not affected by CVE-2018-10933. Other SSH packages are also not affected. To best of my know...

Re: help for firefox and lan

Is this just a problem in Firefox? As in, can you copy files to it with your file manager. Possibly you haven't configured a mount for this nas and so by opening the nas location in your file manager you're dynamically mounting it. The mount wouldn't exist before that. Test that. Open it in your fil...

Re: [Linux Mint 19 + Cinnamon] How to resize swap area on an encrypted volume?

With the added information from your other topic, I'd suggest you could just disable swap. It's generally recommended to have swap set to 20% of physical RAM (unless you need to be able to suspend to disk) but personally I just don't use swap on my 16 GiB RAM system at all. It depends on the workloa...
