Re: soooo ... why Flash?

[...]Why use a surveillance system that streams with Flash? [...] That's because Arlo is the one and only system that I know of, which features 100% wireless waterproof cameras which run for 6+ months on batteries only. Let me elaborate a little, provided you don't laugh at us. Granted, we probably...

Re: What's the correct Flash plugin for Firefox?

Thanks to both for the replies, [...]Flash in Firefox WFM (per this test site )[...] For me too, though it complains that Flash is slightly outdated ("Your version28.0.0.126 Latest Version28.0.0.137"). But unfortunately, I still get the same error (described in my post #1). [...]I prefer using flash...

Re: connextion autmatique sur nas

Les mots de passe sont chiffrés dans le trousseau. Je crois que si l'on vide le mot de passe du trousseau, ils sont en clair ! Ils sont chiffrés avec le mot de passe de session je crois. Je ne suis pas sûr. En tout cas, si l'utilisateur change le mdp de sa session, ça ne se propage pas au trousseau...

Re: connextion autmatique sur nas

Bien ! Mais évidemment, il y a quand même l'inconvénient d'avoir les mots de passe stockés en clair : à ne pas faire sur une machine publique ! Dans un monde parfait, si le mot de passe du trousseau était identique à celui de la session, il devrait se déverrouiller tout seul au démarrage. Mais ça ma...

Re: connextion autmatique sur nas

Bonjour, il y a 2 mots de passe dans cette histoire et je ne suis pas sûr qu'on se soit bien compris : 1) Le mot de passe d'accès aux disques durs de la Freebox -- s'il y en a un. S'il est présent, il est mémorisé dans le trousseau et il n'est a priori pas nécessaire d'y toucher (sauf s'il change) ;...

Re: Not so trouble-free upgrade

Thanks, prestonR and Cosmo, for the replies. It appears that one of the repositories (probably "extra") was preventing the update. After resetting to default, I was able to update the system. Even better, after all the updates I could upgrade to Linux Mint 18.3. Everything went well, so I guess my d...

[solved] Not so trouble-free upgrade

Hello, A while back I upgraded my daughter's PC from LM 17.3 to 18.1. Everything seemed to work OK after the upgrade so for some time I left this PC untouched. But last week, I tried to upgrade to LM 18.3. There was no "Edit-Upgrade to..." option in menu. Instead I saw that the update manager showed...

Re: connextion autmatique sur nas

Bonjour, C'est donc bien un problème de trousseau, et pas avec la Freebox, semble-t-il. De mémoire, l'accès authentifié n'est pas activé par défaut sur la Freebox (juste pour vérifier : FB OS > Paramètres... > Partage... > Partages Windows : "accès authentifié" décoché ?) Maintenant, que dit Seahors...

What's the correct Flash plugin for Firefox?

Hello, We've just set up a Netgear Arlo surveillance system. It has revealed what looks like a Flash issue: In Chromium (flashplugin 28.0.0.126), we are able to watch the video feeds. But we much prefer Firefox... In Firefox, we get a ":connection failed" error. Many Netgear Arlo users report this a...

Re: Bluetooth unreliable

Hi lotech, I too have BT issues on 2 different laptops. I don't know any magic solution, but I have noticed that 1) the blueman-applet manager seems to work better than others (at least with my hardware); 2) it does help, once connected, to open it from the tray, e.g. by displaying the list of conne...

Re: Bluetooth + BrennanB2

Hi mhwelsh, I too have a B2. AFAIK, Bluetooth on the B2 is only for audio input/output. But the B2 does have a NAS function, which you have to enable: http://www.brennan.co.uk/itemcontent.php/content/Sonos Then you can transfer any files you wish to (or from) your B2, once you connect it to your LAN...

Re: Update Manager blacklist bug? Cinnamon 3.7

I've read the above thread and I think I gave a wrong advice. (I thought that locking in Synaptic and with apt-mark was the same.)

So, if the OP doesn't want to make use of this trick, then it would probably be better for him to use apt-mark.

Re: Update Manager blacklist bug? Cinnamon 3.7

PMFJI but I was about to post when I came across this thread. I can confirm that it also happens in XFCE, so it's not desktop-specific. What about "locking the version" (either in Synaptic or with command line)? I bet the package would still appear in the list of updates, but since it's locked, it w...

You can check older versions here: http://snapshot.debian.org/binary/libtiff4/ Useful link, I'm bookmarking it! Well after some trial and error the solution was called libtiff4 3.9.7-2 . Slightly more recent version, and not older as I wrote. With this library installed, I was able go through the w...

Re: Printer driver needs old library

Damn, I spoke too fast. libjpeg8 is already installed, and has a lot of pre-dependencies. It seems unreasonable to suppress it. I could force a downgrade with dpkg, but I bet the result wouldn't be very pretty. OTTH, I saw another user somewhere else who claimed to have solved the problem by install...

[SOLVED] Printer driver needs old library

Hello, I had to reinstall an OS (LMDE2, fresh install, latest ISO) on my daughter's laptop. We have a problem when it comes to set up her "old" Canon MFP495 printer. Canon provides a Linux driver as a .deb package, but it depends on libtiff4... LMDE2 has libtiff5 now! So that stubborn driver won't i...
