Re: Is Mint a younger or older crowd?

they view you as a weirdo or as a relic from a time gone by that they don't relate to in any way, and frankly, can't logically comprehend. They are likely to think you are on some serious drugs. Then so be it. I will be a relic from a bygone era, call me a "sexist", and NO, im not on any ...

Re: Is Mint a younger or older crowd?

I will always remember what my mother said back around 1968 when i was 13, when i asked her what she thought of the "Womens Lib" movement, that was then ongoing at that time.

She said, "Im a LADY and i have zero intention of stepping down off my pedastal"...lol...DAMIEN

Re: Is Mint a younger or older crowd?

All seriousness aside, being a woman "of a certain age", I have no problem being called a lady.

Re: graphics card for Linux, Nvidia or AMD?

But personally I'm a-OK with having the choice to open videos in a separate window or tab. So if you mean that you want them embedded, I'd vote against.
I am in total agreement as well, I like having a choice as well, not having something forced upon me...lol...DAMIEN

Re: Video Driver Issue

Since its a fresh new install, I think if it were me, I would just bite the bullet and re-install again rather than try to fathom out how to fix this...its gonna be a lot quicker I think...just my two cents worth here...DAMIEN

Ps...Just dont do it a second time...lol.

Re: How to change background wallpaper on Mint 20?

As a suggestion, I wouldn't do that because if you need to upgrade/reinstall Mint, your pic might disappear. Not just "Might", But "Will" disappear. I'd like to keep it in system files, next to default backgrounds :| Not a good idea as JerryF has already mentioned, and I agree. ...

Hi ZakGordon, I'd never heard of the other firewalls you mentioned. I just activate the one that Mint comes with and never had an issue? I must have missed something here in reading the different postings here. I only saw two different bittorrents mentioned, (Deluge and Transmission), but didnt see ...
