Re: Self-destructing media files

I'm not aware that such video formats can have self delete tags or scripts embedded, or that Linux video players would care to honor such. I've never heard of this affecting Linux system. Even if there were file recovery tools would find the files or at least portions of them if this was the case. I...

Re: Organizing Files

Perhaps a file manager feature you're accidentally using. For example Nemo file manager on Cinnamon has a feature for favorite and pinned files. If you favorite a file or pin it, it will always be first in directory view. So if you have a file "aaa" and a file "bbb" and you favor...

Re: 2 linux mint partitions?

The last screenshot is the most clear to understand it. In MBR partitioning scheme you can have 4 partitions and one of those can be an extended partition, which is just a container for further sub partitions. The extended partition doesn't hold any data itself. What you're seeing in the last screen...

Re: Mint 20.2 Beta

20.2 uses the same kernel as is current for 20.1 so that should be fine. Running the beta is usually fine if you're okay with some papercuts; during the weeks of beta testing beta installations receive package updates to fix issues so it gets less papercutty by the day. But yes, I would at least wai...

Re: Anyone use email aliases like SimpleLogin?

Yes there's a good case for using email aliases. Many websites get breached and customer or user information might get stolen. Information like email addresses. Next thing you know you're getting spam and phishing emails from spammers that bought the stolen data. They are getting smarter in recent y...

Re: Warpinator, iPhone and Flutter

I don't see the relation to Warpinator? The linked article is about Flutter, one of many user interface libraries developers can use. Warpinator instead uses Gtk3 and that works on Linux, Windows and macOS. I don't think it runs on iOS or Android. But a user interface library is just for the looks o...

Re: Nemo 5 Content Search in Mint 20.2 = index file or grep?

I'm not too familiar with the Nemo code but I think it is a custom search engine, going by the nemo-search-* files in https://github.com/linuxmint/nemo/tree/master/libnemo-private. I could figure out it uses standard system utilities as search helpers (defined in the directory /usr/share/nemo/search...

Re: Firejail and burning

Firejail only "interferes" with programs that you run in Firejail, according to the Firejail profile for that program. So if you run your disc burning program in Firejail and the profile for that program denies it access to certain directories then yes the disc burning program won't be abl...

Re: Mint 20.2 Beta

No. The beta announcement will include information about where to report issues. Past few releases that has been in a dedicated GitHub project and I assume the same will go for this release. That project isn't open yet. It will open once the beta is official and announced.

Re: OS question

No, Linux Mint doesn't run on computers with a PowerPC processor. It's made for computers with processors from Intel and AMD.

There are several Linux distros that have a PowerPC edition, like Debian, though the number has reduced a lot over the past few years.

I don't follow. I assume the lines you shared above is the file before modification. Can you show the same lines what they would be after your intended modification? So I can better understand.

Re: Win 10 is EOL Oct. 14th, 2025...LOL.

I don't like the look of the Windows 11 menu and file manager. Almost half the menu filled with "recommendations". Ads will go there I guess. And the file manager's toolbar with a mix of large and small buttons looks cluttered and confusing. But I do like the window snap button: https://cd...

Re: How to use a $sring in sed?

This will do that: sed -r "s|(<name>)(</name>)|\1$TRIPNAME\2|" The \1 and \2 are backreferences to the () captured groups. Double quotes are needed so Bash will replace $TRIPNAME with its value. I use | (pipe character) as separator in the sed substitute command so I don't need to escape t...

Re: Updatemanager not showing Firefox

Ah. Yes.

Member20170324 if you're still using Linux Mint 18.3 note that it reached end of life in April. You'll have to upgrade your Linux Mint to 19.x or 20.x to continue to receive security updates like for Firefox. Linux Mint 19.x are supported till April 2023. Linux Mint 20.x till April 2025.

Re: Bug in Package

You can't file a bug on Launchpad without an account. Having somebody else report the bug and be the go between you and the maintainer isn't very effective. Just register an account. If you only use it for that, what's the trouble? You're the one using this program so you're the most suited to inter...

If it's an actual popup the browser extension PopUpOFF should take care of it. It's available also for Chromium.
