Re: How to install testing (buster) kernel on LMDE 2?

I would be careful touching the kernel if you have an nvidia graphic card. Check before upgrading that the drivers compatible with your card are available. Before going to Buster I would check in the backports to see if the kernel there is enough for you. Currently 4.9 is available. And of course it...

Re: Bad Windows but conquering the desktop war

As I said at the top of this message, I've seen this movie before. Now, I'm not trying to say this is all pointing towards the death of F/OSS, or GNU+Linux, or anything like that, but these are situations we do not need because you have bad architectural decisions casting an unwarranted and undeser...

Re: Install Rsubread in R

Code: Select all

setHook(packageEvent("grDevices", "onLoad"),

function(...) grDevices::X11.options(type='cairo'))
I expect that the blank line is problematic.
It should looks like this:

Re: Linux is Not Windows

If you reuse weak passwords between the forums and your email/bank accounts, this is entirely your fault. These information could have been stolen from Linux Mint forum hack, or from any other hack in the world. And in my opinion, a Linkedin hack is more valuable to open a Credit. Now let's go back ...

Re: Login Screen at Start up

In the system parameters, you should find an administration section. In this section, you have an item for the connexion window. Here you can activate the password request. I guess you should uncheck the box for automatic login.

Re: Tor anyone?

Assuming all the exit nodes are under control from an agency, it still doesn't mean a lot.
There are 2 nodes between you and the exit, and they prevent the exit node to know where the data are from.

If you use https connexions, the exit node doesn't see much.

Re: Mirror in Paris/France

There is something wrong here.
The list of mirrors wasn't updated since May 2017. And I can't find it in Github. Therefore, your mirror is not listed.

As soon as I can get my hand on it, I will add your mirror in it. The package concerned is mint-mirrors

Re: Let's remember to use httpS for images/avatars... :)

Xenopeek made sure earlier this year that new avatars can only be with an https link. :wink: You can also use gravatar now. If I remember correctly, he converted a lot of avatars to https also. It must be impossible to meet an http avatar nowadays on the forum with all the good work he did. :mrgreen:

In this case I think Windows is broken. If the size is not being correctly displayed with the correct unit, this is unreadable.

You can add actions in Nemo, and then you will see them in the contextual menu. There is already such an action for checking the SHA sum of an iso file. You can customize it a little to get it running for all files. [Nemo Action] Active=true Name=Check SHA256 Name[de]=Prüfe SHA256-Hash Name[fr]=Véri...

No need to save them. If you upgrade they won't disappear.
And if you reinstall you can just install the package mint-backgrounds-sonya
