Re: Language learning

Moved here as a more suitable location as this is entirely unrelated to Linux Mint development. I'd suggest Duolingo to get started learning French: https://en.duolingo.com/course/fr/en/Learn-French-Online. Or if you have something similar to what we have here where the municipality sponsors communi...

Re: Steam now lets you play Windows games on Linux

Just keep a timer running when trying any games. To be eligible for refund the purchase has to have been made in the past 2 weeks and you can't have more than 2 hours (120 minutes) of playtime.

Re: I can't launch Gparted.

Googling that error finds other users with the same issue. They have pinned it down to either being because of issue around Wayland compatibility (but Linux Mint doesn't use Wayland yet, it uses X), issues with broken libraries or users having installed GParted from outside the repository. Can you c...

Re: Linux Mint 19 FDE across multiple drives—the right way?

No, same. It's a very old article but I couldn't find anything recent conclusive specific for Ubuntu/Linux Mint at the time. Perhaps hibernate will work fine if you let the installer handle everything for FDE or even with custom install. Could be my google-fu failing me. On Linux Mint installs I as ...

Re: need for more partitions than default?

It doesn't really serve a purpose on its own unless you have a specific need. If you have multiple hard disks obviously. Or if you intend to run a server (though disk quotas should better be used in that case). One use can be to have a separate /home partition. So that when installing a next major v...

Re: How to search in file content?

It is possible to make it search in file content too but that will take some programming at your end (to implement it :)). Assuming you didn't mean that, you'll have to use a different search tool for deep searches. On the command line you have a plethora of options. Obviously grep but that is rathe...

I've only had that happen while running Firefox and just having installed an update for it (while it was running). Closing and restarting Firefox was enough to fix it. Didn't happen again.

It appears to be an issue on your end.

Re: Locate executable for newly installed program?

That package installs the binary /usr/bin/latex. If the directory /usr/bin is not in your PATH you have a real issue.

Check what is in your PATH:
echo $PATH
Check that the file /usr/bin/latex exists and is an executable:
file /usr/bin/latex
