So, I did win the bet. Yeah me.
But to be serious, I'm glad your system works again as it should.
Have fun with it.

Re: Help needed with watching video's on website

Question: why? You'll have to ask the nu.nl website developers. They did something to not make it work on Linux. Almost correct, Xenopeek. I did contact them and it turns out the adblockers are responsible for me not being able to watch their videos: no ads - no videos. Well, okay, if that is the r...

Re: Test Message in Thunderbird

I have no idea why the gmail has given so much trouble. I am glad to be rid of it. Sorry to say this but it is not Gmails fault that things didn't work out for you. Something must have been wrong with setting up your account. I have Gmail on all computers and on my phone and it all works great. It ...

Re: Why Linux Mint seems more User-Friendly than Ubuntu?

Both Ubuntu & Mint are great Distros -- Mint just goes the extra mile :) I agree. And I think the core reason for that is that Clem Lefebvre goes the extra mile when it comes to listening to users. Look at all the Mint blog announcements.... people are asking questions, pointing out bugs, and Clem ...

Re: Test Message in Thunderbird

Can you send to others (friends, family, etc) from both accounts? Can you receive on both accounts from others? If this is all correct it means your accounts have been set up in the correct way. If one or maybe even two of my questions need to be answered with no then you do have to inspect your acc...

I can't think of a decent car analogy for KDE, unless you count fictional ones.

In that case, KDE is like the Batmobile - timeless, classic look, with every conceivable gadget you can think of. :)
So much better. Thank you.

My wife uses an 8 year old Dell Inspiron 64 bits computer which originally came with Vista. I soon changed that to Win7 and for a long time she was happy with her computer. I made the weekly back-ups, I took care updates were in order, etc. Then suddenly early last year she started to complain, it w...

Re: Prediction: Linux stock rises in 2016 and beyond

Notice that 42% of the visitors to DistroWatch are Windows users and 47% are Linux users. Ven diagram analysis might come close to those figures. Isn't Distrowatch.com a site especially for Linux users? When so, it is amazing how many Windows users still come there (42% as you write). The amount of...

What I hate every day at work where I have to use Windows: with some windows on top of each other, I always have to click inside a window to make scrolling in that window possible. In Linux I just hover the mouse over the window I want to scroll the text and it works. That's great when you have a we...

Hi phd21, As I wrote earlier, after a reboot all was working again. No idea what went wrong. I know about the way you can open a file as root from Dolphin, I also use that from time to time, but nothing worked at that moment. I just found out when trying to reboot that even that didn't work so I had...

Re: Sudo KDE-application doesn't work

I think an apology is in order here. Having this problem made me a bit p*ss*d and I decided to burn a DVD with Mint 17.3 on it to re-install the OS. Since this is Mint it will only take half an hour till I have the system setup again like I want it to. The DVD was ready, I made a backup of my data i...

Re: Thunderbird ' uncoupled ' from the mozilla project.

Sorry. No need to apologise, I'm an adult, I can handle others not sharing my opinion. Personally I find that I can find my way in Thunderbird pretty much right away and that's enough for me to say it's very familiar. As always, opinions will differ and the way we use words differs, too. I've never...

Re: Thunderbird ' uncoupled ' from the mozilla project.

Thunderbird is more advanced, much more advanced. Interesting... in which ways? To name just a few: When starting Seamonkey the first time, you need to add an e-mail account. Of course you have to, since no e-mail account - no e-mails When I added my Gmail account, using IMAP and SMTP, the program ...
