Re: Trouble installing a tar.gz program

When I go to the readme it says: "Copy the correct binary to your favorite /bin location. Set the execute permissions on." There are two executable files in that archive, one for 32bit, one for 64bit, both named "vplanner". Extract the one you want and copy it to /home/<username>/bin/. and do chmod...

strangely, Document Viewer now no longer shows the file in recently viewed but shows files from a few weeks ago; I haven't performed a restore of log-off&on.
Can you still open the file?

Re: "Missing" file

If I go back into recent docs within the Document Viewer it shows the properties of the file as file:///home/tony/Desktop/kat.pdf and can open the file. Just like "Document Viewer" isn't the real name of the program, "kat.pdf" might not be the real name of the file - perhaps capital letters or spec...

I mean that when I try to transfer music, videos, or large files from my external hard drive to this laptop—no matter their size—I am unable to and a warning pops up telling me that there's not enough room on the hard drive. I get the "Error while copying to "Videos" warning and the message telling...

a 256 GB SSD but it has less than 60 GB of stuff in it (mostly music) and it won't let me add anything at all while giving me a warning that there isn't enough room on the hard drive. What is "it" and exactly what is the error message? Your partition (plus swap) and home directory look OK. What out...

I did that the simple way: - create it normally. - copy it (the VM file of 5-10GB or so) to where you want it (on a different partition). - edit an existing XML file - which points to the old VM - to point to w...

Did you view it online or download it? I get sound viewing online but the problem is after i download it!
I can play it fine in vlc and smplayer and the audio is good and clear.

If all else fails, open the downloaded mp4 file in your browser. It plays in firefox.

Re: home and additional folder problem

I rename (so it can't be found by wine)
~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/winemenubuilder.exe
to prevent wine from adding menu items (and IIRC .desktop files in file associations).

Re: Dacmagic plus usb is not seen

You must have updated the kernel because 18.3 doesn't ship with a 4.13 kernel. Did you install it because of meltdown stuff? Try booting from the previous kernel (assuming you didn't delete it). A good idea - I went back to 4.10 kernel because 4.13 kept giving me bogus messages about USB devices.

Re: OS Up-dates errors and video cutting

This is wrong. If the editing software is doing what it should, then it will completely decode and interpolate the frames into whole (progressive) frames for cutting. It will only need to re-encode on export. avidemux can do that, at least with certain formats. It'll reencode small chunks and copy ...
