Re: Error popup After Logging in After Installing Wine

After successfully installing Wine after following some not good tutorials, this error box pops up after I log in (see attached image). It looks like it has something to do with Wine. I was curious to know if anyone had any suggestions on a fix? Is it as dire as the error is making it sound? There'...

Re: Remove Firefox and firefox still runs

is the folder .mozilla present on home? EDIT: just for fun, I searched firefox and got a ton sub-attached to wine. I have no idea why there is FF attached to wine. It's actually not; what wine calls "z:" is your "/" directory, so (from your picture) .../z:/usr/bin/firefox is just /usr/bin/firefox ,...

Re: Remove Firefox and firefox still runs

This might be a bit cheeky of Mint-devs, but I used "sudo apt remove firefox*" and it did and declared the free space saved etc, so I rebooted. If I click the Firefox icon still in the bar at the bottom left, it launches Firefox 78.0.1 with the Mint home page. If I try the "sudo ..." again, it says...

Re: How can I stop pulseaudio from spawning?

The output has gone to https://termbin.com/wyk0 The issue is that I can't stop PA from spawning with autospawn = no in client.conf with Linux Mint 20. How about sudo mv /usr/bin/pulseaudio /usr/bin/pulseaudio.save ? A note: recent firefox versions require pulseaudio, you can get around that with pa...

Re: My laptop is running on linux mint 20 Xfce but it’s booting time and startup takes 3min.

Any guiding posts for changing its kernel to 4.15.0? It's pretty easy; Update Manager -> View -> Linux Kernels -> the rest is pretty obvious. I dunno whether or not this will become your default kernel when you reboot; you might have to fiddle with grub and/or show the grub menu when you boot, and ...

Why the update manager isn't proposing me a kernel update?
What LanceM said, plus I don't think it suggests updates from one kernel series to another, IOW, it'll offer updates to a later version of 5.3.x, but not from 5.3 to 5.4

Every two-three minutes, everything will freeze for a few seconds, then it goes back to normal. It slows my work so much.
Kernel: 5.3.0-59-generic x86_64 bits: 64 Desktop: Cinnamon 4.4.8
I had that happening with the 5.3 kernels; kernels 4.15.x and/or 5.4.x didn't have the problem.

I am using the steam AP which comes with Linux Mint. Home page is the problem it down loads there and then creates a shortcut in the steam AP.
Are you using "page" to mean a directory/partition on your local machine?

Re: Terminal, Sudo, Wine

I probably wouldn't use linux if not for wine; under wine, these applications run at least as well as the inferior linux equivalents (e.g. Photoshop under wine starts faster and can handle bigger images than the linux gimp, plus having superior effects and much better GUI. Same goes for audition vs ...
