Re: Multiple Issues after installing Linux Mint 18.1 Serena Cinnamon

ISO file corruption would lead to issues with the ISO before installing, not after. How so? I think wishful thinking on my part. One can dream of a better world! The ISO boots a casper filesystem which is stored as a single gzip compressed squashfs format file on the ISO. gzip includes a CRC-32 che...

Re: Chromium loads wrong language version of web site

Try using the direct link to English: https://www.debian.org/index.en.html. Is there a difference from going to https://www.debian.org/?

Re: Debian 9 Stretch

So what you're saying is, download another ISO? :wink: I'll just wait for the LiveISO to be fixed and will download that anew.

Re: Debian 9 Stretch

Wait a bit before installing it. Pretty serious bug on the current release: https://fosspost.org/2017/06/20/debian- ... rking-fix/. Wait for new ISOs to be published.

Re: Sent from Linux Mint

My personal opinion: just because other operating systems are invasive and hijack their users' private communication to advertise themselves without their users' consent doesn't make it right to do this on Linux Mint as well. Now if you want to put "Sent from Linux Mint" in your Thunderbir...

Re: The scariest data exposure ever.

Exactly. And it happened before in 2015, when 191 million voters’ records were exposed: http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-voters-breach-idUSKBN0UB1E020151228. But voters' records are basically public anyway: https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2016/02/voter-privacy-what-you-need-know-about-your-digita...

Re: Update Manager package description

Update Manager shows all package updates from the same source as one item. You'll always want to keep packages build from the same source on the same versions. Assuming you haven't applied that update yet and you are on Linux Mint 18 or newer; to see what is specifically going on at your side, can y...

Re: Multiple Issues after installing Linux Mint 18.1 Serena Cinnamon

If your example is similar spec to this ( https://www.notebookcheck.net/Asus-VivoBook-E200HA-FD0009TS.166391.0.html) then the 2GB ram is not enough to run the Cinnamon version. I'd suggest trying the XFCE version which uses considerably less resources. Amount of RAM has nothing to do with not havin...

Re: MMORPGs (Poll of sorts)

That's a bit limited list. What about Shroud of the Avatar, Albion Online, Shadowrun Chronicles, ARK, Vendetta Online and quite a few more out there and some rumoured upcoming ports (Star Citizen?). I'm not into MMOs so perhaps these don't exactly fall in the same category as Ryzom or Regnum. Anyway...

Re: What is the story behind the name of many commands

What thumb rules can be used to remember commands? There aren't any such rules. Somebody writes a utility and gives it a name. Sometimes easy to remember like cp (copy), mv (move), and chmod (change mode) but sometimes less so like htop (Hisham's top). If you want, keep a cheat sheet for yourself w...
