Re: Computer housing. Some thoughts about heat dissipation and design.

Impossible? 2025 - that means in 7 years - we are on Mars, as experts assure me in various forums. A combined computer housing with stove plate should not be a big challenge for gifted technicians. The microwave oven was created after British radar technicians noticed that their radar units kept th...

Re: Virtual Machines

Looking for ways to have some windows apps through a dedicated virtual machine. What applications for the VM would you recommend? Running Linux Mint 18.3 on Lenovo with i5 processor. You'll find a lot of people here run VirtualBox. It's recommended that you download the latest version for Ubuntu 16...

Re: Virtual Machines

Wine is rubbish Wine worked for a project where VirtualBox failed. VMware or something else might have worked, VirtualBox did not. In your case, yes, that's probably true, but it isn't accurate for the majority. I've been using VMs for many years with little or no trouble whatsoever. I feel that th...

Have you verified that the mouse is working correctly, by,, say using a different mouse or plugging the errant mouse into a different machine?

Re: Chrome browser is locked

this is a PITA and is totally unnecessary. @administrollaattori is correct, but opinions differ on the security risk of setting a blank password. As you use autologon, you need to ask yourself if it's a further security risk to not use the keyring. I use autologon and one of the first things I do i...

Re: Mint 17 Cinnamon: Totem & VLC: Can't get either to display subtitles

I've tried both VLC and Totem, loading the *.srd files. Neither displays the subtitles. I went through the preferences of each. As a general rule, subtitles should have the same name as video file, with a different extension. Most video players will auto-load the subtitles when the name is the same.
