Re: Installing LM KDE vs LM Cinnamon

Anyway, "use entire disk" is like "replace windows with Mint" and "shrink partition" is like "install alongside". That's right, they're all Mint, but when we're talking about Mint KDE, the key word here is KDE, not Mint. :wink: All the distros that use KDE look more or less similar to each other. I ...

Re: Installing LM KDE vs LM Cinnamon

The last time I installed a distro with KDE, the first option was "Guided - shrink the partition" or something like that, I don't remember well. This first option is the same thing as "Install 'someOS' alongside 'anotherOS' ". I haven't tried Mint KDE, so I don't know. If that first option is actual...

As to NoScript, if you're an impatient person like most of us may I suggest ABE, FlashBlock and YesScript.
You're right, but for some reason it's still called "Shockwave Flash", at least in Firefox Plugins' section.

Revolution OS (Story of GNU/Linux)

I watched this documentary on youtube some time ago and I thought I'd share it with you people. Some of you may have already watched it though. It's just great to know how GNU project and free software movement started, how GNU/Linux was written and see who are all the legendary people behind the OS...

It seems another user had the same problem:

Re: AttackVector Linux VS Tails Vs Kali

Well, I'm not an expert, but Kali Linux and TAILS can't be compared. TAILS is for privacy, created to be run from a live-usb and it's for normal users. Kali is for cyber-security experts and for ethical hacking. :wink:

Hello greenTree, Chances are, you might not need VS at all. What are you working on exactly? If it's just HTML, CSS and some javascript, then of course, you could find a lot of alternative options. If you're working on ASP.NET, then it's more difficult to find a good option, however maybe with Monod...

Re: A plea about passwords

A door can be locked or unlocked, but it will never be as secure as a wall, because it can be opened - with or without a key. My point is, if another user could disable passwords and therefore, do all the admin tasks without a password, root won't be root anymore. It will become just another user, m...

It changes color? Where? The bookmarks star is now between the URL bar and the home icon. Normally it's greyed out. When you bookmark a website (i.e. when you click on it) it changes its color. The color of the star probably depends on the desktop you're using, but it won't be grey anymore. When yo...

Classic Theme Restorer (CTR) doesn't bring Firefox back to the way we have known and always cherished it. :roll: The last hick was with regards to the star that used to appear in url box which basically told us if the webpage was in our bookmarks (or not). It's not there anymore and CTR or other ad...

Re: A plea about passwords

Spacedog, I believe you have good intentions indeed. However, let me give you some advice. First of all, you should learn more about GNU/Linux. As other members already said, you can't provide support for the system you don't know well enough. Secondly, when you show your customers Linux Mint or any...

Re: A plea about passwords

I guess the philosophical issue I have is the user already has a password for things like email and cloud, this should be enough in a well designed system. The point I am trying to make it is may not be the user who is trying to do some admin task, it may be their son, daughter, or a friend. I gues...

Wait. First learn what root is and how powerful it is. Then you'll understand what is sudo and why we need a password.

Re: A plea about passwords

Welcome to the forum, Spacedog. :D Unfortunately, I have to disagree with you. You're talking about the sudo password, right? It has to be there. Honestly, I can't imagine not having a sudo password. If you want to just log in without having to type the password - that's fine and this can be done . ...
