Re: how can i write windows 10 iso image to USB ?

I also had a lot of trouble making a bootable usb-stick with win-10.
Not bootable, or bootable and crippled content... and so on...
At last I used the MS supplied usb writer, which did work fine.
You get the option when you download win-10 for another system. as far I can remenber.

[SOLVED] Install mint while keep userdata

I want to install LM 19.2 and keep my userdata, so I don' t have to restore anything. Hopefully... When I read the docs around installing I cannot find that option, only to not format the disk. But Not formating does not garantee not wiping the userdata. When I filled the forms, and said NO FORMAT, ...

Re: cups incomplete printing page

Re: I need vino-server to automatically start during boot and without the need for any user login

I don't use it the way you would do, but maybe this page can help you configuring?

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Vino

If I do understand it well you want to use it headless? In fact some ssh -X "server" whould be possible too I guess.

Re: Can't get Canon mp560 scanner recognised

First thing I would try is to have it connected by usb, if thats possible.
Then you know if all could work... if it is recognised then...
Or did you do that test already?

( My mp170 runs only on usb, but works perfect )

Re: linux mint gpg key

Yep, I understand. so there is no free certificate-keeper/authority

--always-trust gives a shorter list but with the obvious warning: gpg: WARNING: Using untrusted key!

But not satisfied with the result. Even the highest vbr did not work for me. Then Flac, well great, but file are sooo big, th...

Okay, no much reaction... But then in addition to this, I found EASYTAG, an id3tagger, can also search into the CDDB. works nice to.

Ah, not realy shut But I think it up to yourself.
Just do it in the preferences-settings. Some apps can prevent screen from blanking or locking the screen, but firefox, Ive never heart of.
Nothing about that in the >about:config of firefox.
It is in Settings-Screensaver. But you knew that...
