Re: Aktivierungsverwaltung und Anwendungsquellen starten seit Python 3.6.3 nicht mehr

Hallo, Armageddon0605. Meine erste Frage wäre eher: wie genau hast du Pyhton 3.6.3 installiert? Woher stammt es genau? Auf einem funktionierenden Mint 18.1 (das wird unter 18.2 nicht anders sein) müssen unter /usr/bin folgende python Einträge genau so gesetzt sein: $ ls -l /usr/bin/python* lrwxrwxrw...

The file .bashrc is named .bashrc , because it holds settings relevant for each bash session. bash is the shell (command interpreter), which runs inside a terminal window appli...

Re: [PATCHED] Wpa2 vulnerability - krack [issue is fixed on all Mint versions]

Hi, Faust. You should have received a wpa labelled update for wpasupplicant on Mint 17.x as well, irrespective of the desktop environment. xenopeek gave these update version details for Mint 17.x : For Linux Mint 17.x you need version 2.1-0ubuntu1.5 or newer.

Re: How to have unlisted users?

Hello, skikir. This is a misunderstanding. I cannot edit any of the themes here either. Some of the themes in the list will display userlists. Some themes will not display userlists, but instead expect you to enter loginname and password. I have to look at the preview of each theme to find out which...
