Re: Duplicate Files Search

That will only find duplicate names though, right? Recoll and other GUI tools that sit on top of the Linux locate and find commands don't index whether files have the same contents. Or perhaps that is enough info for OP.

Re: Duplicate Files Search

I don't think what you want exists. fslint, fdupes, dupeguru and the like all search from a particular starting directory for duplicates in that directory (and if so told, also its subdirectories). Not what you want "look in this directory and find duplicates anywhere else on my system". T...

Re: Duplicate Files Search

But should the search be limited to files with the same name or should the name be disregarded and *only* the contents be compared?

Re: Duplicate Files Search

Can you narrow it down a bit more. Should the hard disk be searched for files with identical contents to files on the DVD, regardless of their name? Or does the name matter and should first files with the same exact name be searched for and then checked whether the contents is the same? And is there...

Re: Crossover Linux worth the money?

It's on special for $19. Worth that, or no? Only you can answer that. How important is that Windows program or game to you? Is it clear CrossOver will let you run it on Linux? Is all that worth $19 of your money, or would you rather spend your time on it to make the Windows software run on Wine or ...

Re: Has anyone install flatpak on LM 17.3?

It's a problem that will ultimately solve itself: Linux Mint 17.3 is supported till April 2019 and eventually you'll have to upgrade to 18.3 or 19.x. Don't forget 18.3 is using Ubuntu 16.04 as a package base so that is also software already almost 2 years old. Flatpak has a use on that as well.

At any time (if the current path given in the prompt on the terminal is not clear to you) you can type pwd to get the full path of your current directory. To go to the Desktop, on English systems (on non-Engli...

Re: Shipping a laptop with preinstalled Linux Mint (with minor modifications)

This is something I would have to figure out. We may need to use a PPA till the time that the drivers are upstreamed to the mainline. A PPA is a workable solution till the needed drivers are in the kernel from Linux Mint's official repositories. You need no further permission. Thanks for the quick ...

Re: [Solved] Disable "Recently used Applications" in Menu for Mint 18.3 Sylvia

I tried some things but none of the plugins' functions gets called for opening/closing the menu. I can't easily find a hook where to set the Documents tab back to active. I considered removing the tab but that looked a lot more complex than I'm comfortable with :) Perhaps somebody more familiar with...

mintMenu is developed by Linux Mint. You can make feature requests here: https://github.com/linuxmint/mintmenu/issues. You'll need to register an account on GitHub if you don't have one already. Registration is easy and requires but little information. They won't spam you.

Re: When to update kernel 4.10.0-38 [SOLVED]

Yes I do. Security update means it contains a fix for a known security issue in your current kernel. With Linux Mint 18.3 I will suggest to use Timeshift to make a system restore point so you can revert to that if an update does cause problems. In the case of a kernel, you can always choose to boot ...

Re: When to update kernel 4.10.0-38

You can use the 4.10 kernel till February/March 2018. It won't be maintained after that. Update Manager should at that time show you the upgrade to 4.13. In turn 4.13 will be maintained for 6 months after which time you'll upgrade to 4.15. For the remaining lifetime of Linux Mint 18.x you can either...

Re: Which kernels get security updates?

The kernel developers have a number of longterm maintained kernel releases. You can find these here: https://www.kernel.org/category/releases.html. However, Ubuntu's kernel team does its own kernel maintenance and may maintain other kernel releases than upstream (i.e., the kernel developers) for a l...

Re: Access hidden directories / files with program (Beyond Compare)

Hidden files have no special status other than the convention used by file managers and such to not show such files by default unless toggled (file managers have a menu option to toggle to view hidden files and usually a keyboard shortcut for it like Ctrl+H). You don't need special rights or super u...
