what would block an executable file?

I had to reinstall LinuxMint due to a self inflicted error.I had attempted to install a win 7 on a separate HD and somehow it messed up the grub and boot system. As I tried to repair the grub with timeshift, things snowballed downward from there. After the reinstall I had a hard time to install my h...

Re: update manager issue

Thanks for your reply kc1di, I had been trying to install an HP printer package and it went sideways on me. I had just installed 19.2 on my laptop at the beginning of the month and didn't have much data on the drive to worry about. I have a separate 500gb storage drive on board with my data and it w...

Re: cd Burner - Xfburn

Brasero isn't working it seems for me on LM18. It just kind of says its recording , but is really doing nothing. System Monitor is showing no activity, and the dvd/cd unit on the computer is not active either.

Re: Cinnamon over KDE

Well I did the Mint 18 Cinnamon install and am never going back :) It works great and now have updated most of our computers to that. I tried the KDE 18 on one of my desktops, and even though I like the Mint KDE and have used it for a few years, it seems to be slower or bloated on that unit. The Min...

Re: Can't mount Iphone 5s with iOS10

Lol. It just seems to me that apple goes out of there way to make it hard to do something simple, and to prioritize it so that you have to buy their crap. I migrated to apple from BB, if I had done my proper research and knew about all this, I never would of bought one. I still use my BB for work th...

Re: Can't mount Iphone 5s with iOS10

The same thing happened to me with my iphone 6s. I had a file manager app that worked fine through the usb cable for months, and after the last os update it quit working. I can just transfer photos now. I tried several different file manager apps and no success except for an app called 'remote file ...

SOLVED Re: Nvidia 970 will not work on Cin18

Hi richyrich, I so love it when its such a simple solution. I was so into looking for something complex and I simply overlooked the obvious. I removed the graphics card and checked all the connections, it all looked good. Then I saw the cmos jumper (it was partially hidden behind the graphics card) ...

SOLVED Nvidia 970 will not work on Cin18

Here's the deal.. I upgraded to cin 18 and had an existing AMD HD 7870 video card. I found out AMD dropped support for this card and there are no drivers from AMD anymore and the existing drivers will not work for cin 18. The result was the only 2 games I played on Linux wouldn't work. (Xplane and U...

Synaptic message after package install.

Hi all, I have installed Cinnamon 18 64b today and for the most part everything is working ok, but I found something that I do not know about. After I install a package with synaptic it gives me this message; "W: Can't drop privileges for downloading as file '/root/.synaptic/tmp//tmp_sh' couldn't be...

Re: Cinnamon over KDE

Great, thanks for the reply. I kinda thought that was happening just by looking at Ksys guard, It is showing as KDE4 is running while I am in the cinnamon desktop.
I love a fresh install....

Cinnamon over KDE

I have a 5 yr old HP laptop, which I installed Mint 17.3 with KDE on top. I later added the cinnamon desktop and found that I like it better on my laptop. My question is does it make a difference in performance installing it this way or would I be better off just installing cinnamon on its own as I ...

Re: Which laptops seem stable and have minimum issues with M

I never thought of the live cd. I'll have to give it a try though. I could see some local stores being aprehensive and probably against a live cd though. I think I would be if it were me. I've found that when it comes to Linux, most computer store employees know very little or nothing about it. I wo...

Which laptops seem stable and have minimum issues with Mint?

Hi all, Just starting to do some research before I buy a new laptop. Right now I am using a HP pavillion DV7 which is a few years old, and has served me very well but it has an AMD HD4XXX series video card which thanks to AMD has become obsolete. This makes upgrading to newer systems next to impossi...

Yeah, I was reading about that before on one of my research expeditions. Its too bad though because there are probably lots of peeps with that card too. I think I'll probably steer toward nvidia on the next purchase. I have 4 units with nvidia cards here and not once since I started using Linux have...

Its just boys and their toys.... I have had definite video issues in the past (ie XPLANE, BMS Falcon) where the simulation just would not work with the supplied drivers and had to use the latest AMD or NVidia, and that was on a i7 8core desktop . I'm only having an issue with 1 video card as well, a...
