Re: Is mokutil preinstalled in mint 19?

Looks like it's preinstalled: apt search mokutil i mokutil - tools for manipulating machine owner keys p mokutil:i386 - tools for manipulating machine owner keys Thanks. How can I check this if I don't have a fresh installed machine?

[SOLVED] Is mokutil preinstalled in mint 19?

I'd like to know if the package 'mokutil' is installed by default in linux mint 19 or it is an additional package.
I was not able to find it in the list of packages installed by defaul in mint 19 here >>> http://packages.linuxmint.com/index.php

Thanks

Re: [SOLVED] I've got a virus on Mint

The first DNS is PIA's I think. The second is Cloudflare. I've got no experience in using VPN's I was just interested in case i ever decided I needed to start using one. Check this page then https://www.privacytools.io/ I'm very happy with PIA, I'm changing only because it is US based. When I start...

Re: I've got a virus on Mint

Is a DNS server hijack a possibility? What does systemd-resolve --status | grep "DNS Servers:" output? Edit - just read your last post - so which VPN? Probably one to avoid. :) It could be to be honest. My DNS at the moment are: DNS Servers: 209.222.18.222 DNS Servers: 1.1.1.1 I tried to ...

Re: I've got a virus on Mint

Just a thought, any other computers in the same network that are affected? Is it possible that your router got hacked, not the PC? WOW ! This just made me realize that my laptop is under VPN while the other computer is not. Disconnected from the VPN and the problem is gone. I didn't know that the V...

Re: I've got a virus on Mint

if there is any installed add-ons in any of those browsers, then try disabling / removing them, as an first off option. then, if there is any reset option, then do that as well. the issue will be something that is common to all of those browsers, as an Linux Virus, whilst very un-likely, but it's n...

This sounds more like a browser hijacking than a virus. Can you replicate this in another browser?
yes, with all 3 browser mentioned above. And I never use firefox, so it's impossible (but don't exclude) that is something in the cache or similar.
I've never experienced virus on linux.

Re: Converting VHS to digital

I'd also like to add my 2p worth to this. When doing captures from a source such as VHS which has quite poor timing stability, it is of great benefit to use a capture method which incorporates a "genlock" (= digital frame store); this stabilizes the video and provides typically much bette...

If you want a nice clean interface that looks a bit like outlook, try mailspring.

https://getmailspring.com/

Don't use it myself because it doesn't have an integrated calendar. I use evolution.
looks nice! I'll take a look!
