Re: Audio notch filter for Linux Mint.

I think you can do this with Audacity. ....................... Thanks All. I will look for it. Edit: Found it. However, the equalization option is greyed out. I might not have all the add-ons installed? You have to have a file open an part or all of it selected. There's an actual notch filter under...

Re: youtube-dl spontaneously stopped working for me today

By the way, to those coming here with this sort of issue, but the update command didn't work: It's likely because you installed the outdated version from the Ubuntu repositories; take a look at the official youtube-dl website and consider downloading it there, then use the aforementioned update com...

Re: Modifying mp4 video files...

I have several .mp4 files where the music is too loud. So much so, in fact, that it is impossible to clearly hear the singer. Is it possible to modify the video by reducing the loudness of the music and retaining the volume of the vocals. Sort of, and it depends. Normalizing won't do it. All I have...

Re: What do the "/" and "/home" mean?

Recently, I have read that "/" is the boot partition and "/home" is the partition for the main folder to be in. "/" = the root partition...but /root is the admin's login directory (unfortunate naming). "/home" = either a directory or partition and /home/username(s) are the directories for each user...

Re: recording, audio, and editing

If you're concerned about audio quality, download the .webm audio file with youtube-dl (usually type "251", but not always present and also not the default download), then edit and convert it to your preferred format with audacity.

Re: Make firefox STOP reminding about updates - how?

The Mint version of FF has some changes that you don't have there. I wonder if just adding the one I have highlighted would be enough. Thanks, I got that one, set to the same thing.

I guess that's correct, it is "unknown": what kind of camera is it?

Anyway, an internet search on that error message might help. One thing is to try it as root/sudo as a test.

These work in a terminal -

To prevent the bitmap rendering with all fonts (as far as I can tell!), I put <fontconfig> <match target="font"> <edit mode="assign" name="embeddedbitmap"><bool>false</bool></edit> ...etc... in ~/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf It helps quite a bit with the appearance of some 'wine' programs.
