Re: Microsoft Word not importing PDF

the Windows System tends to lock things down, more than a Linux system does, & probably to force you to Buy even more Software than you really wish to. .. so, you have to open the PDF in some reader, which these days is probably *not* from Adobe, and depending on the PDFs security permissions, you ...

Microsoft Word not importing PDF

So, I've gotten MS Word 2010 to run in Wine successfully. But a problem I'm facing is whenever I try importing/opening a PDF, I get weird symbols to be imported (unlike running it in Windows where it is successfully imported).

Anyone know how to properly open a PDF in Word?

Re: How to properly delete swap?

yes they meant swap-off. you may not be able to use the extra space for /home or the system partition. we would need to see the disk layout. so either take a screenshot of gparted, to show us, or paste the output from this command run in the terminal program: sudo parted -l thats a lower case L at ...

Re: How to properly delete swap?

You only answered my questions partly, so we do not know, how big your swap is and where it is located. I would even with this amount of RAM not remove swap entirely, but reduce it to e.g. 1 GB. If there is no swp at all and you should at any time come into the situation where the system needs to s...

Is it safe to update Kernel on Mint 17.2?

It seems the current kernel is 3.16 but the latest stable that's out is 4.15 which has quite a few improvements and security fixes. Is it dangerous to update or would it be possible to update this as smoothly as any other program installation?

Thanks

Applets installing to the right taskbar?

I'm on Mint 17.2 and for some reason all applets downloaded are installing to the right hand side of the taskbar and not the left. Manually adding applets can be done to the right but other applets are not. How can I fix this?

Re: Shortcuts for NTFS Drives

What should I do instead if I want to access files and write to them on C:\? Create another NTFS partition (w/windows), which windows will call D: or some such, access & write your files there instead of C:. (Note: they won't be called C: or D: under linux). Could you please link me to a tutorial/p...

Re: Shortcuts for NTFS Drives

Why is mounting C:/ bad? When I installed my comp C:\ was shown and clicking on it mounted it I think. I can access C:\ freely through Mint. Is this bad? Because if you mount the "C" partition read-write (which is the default) and make any changes to it, you risk corrupting the Windows filesystem i...
