Re: Ubuntu CEO arrested for looting

I guess you are right. Ubuntu Wealth Group So the thread title is deliberately misleading, because it should read "CEO of Ubuntu Wealth Group arrested for looting". Don't blame me for your assumptions or ignorance. There is no "Ubuntu CEO" for Ubuntu software, since the company ...

Re: Mounted Drives - shortcut to the save path?

For arguements sake, lets say I have a drive mounted at media/username/ It'll be more like /media/username/some-disk-id ; you probably shouldn't add /media/username/ to your fstab as a mount point. (also, there's a leading "/": /media/username isn't the same as media/username ) I'm just l...

Re: SmillaEnlarger with Mint 20.x

Hi, SmillaEnlager is a small graphic utility, used to enlarge images. With it you can enlarge an image of several hundreds percents, without pixelisation and with a good rendering. It also run nicely in wine, and "installs" as a portable app, which is nice. But I prefer the results from i...

This is another reason (IMO) to use good naming practices, and NOT use spaces in filenames, yes there is always a work around, but what needless pain. :) Exactly! I never use spaces; the only time I see them is from offshoots of google-chrome or vivaldi... $ Find " " ./.config/BraveSoftwa...

Re: Will it always be a slog using Linux?

I know I've only been using Linux a week but every step of the way seems like a slog. Just discovered games that need Wine to run. DL it and nothing happens. Try running linux without wine, it's a lot easier. If you really want to use wine, read the release notes for your distro about installing wi...

NOTE: As is it won't work on files with spaces in their names, there's a one liner to fix that too.
That works on files with spaces in their names, as does this simpler version:
