So if the Linux Kernel is written in C, what IDE do they use?

So I take it the core Linux Kernel is written in C and Assembly (and C++?). If that is correct, how do they do assembly while in a Linux Distro, is there an analogue to an IDE for Assembly code? And also, I know that in MSFT coding Visual Studio is the gold standard, but what IDEs do people like Lin...

Need software that does this, anyone know?

I need a program that I can: 1. Keep a daily journal. 2. Be able to backup and restore on other computers and with new install. 3. Would work for writing a book. OR 4. A separate program for writing a book. It would need good backup features. ~Libre and OpenOffice just aren't the right things for th...

Re: Recommend a sub $80 all in one mostly for scanning?

Good idea, when I get home from the Holiday I'll install on my laptop and write one up. I'm not sure how to get a router to work with the printer without using the WPS router method.

Re: Recommend a sub $80 all in one mostly for scanning?

Well, good news: My Canon TR4520 All in one printer came. It was a challenge to set up, because Canon didn't give any instructions for Linux and the little window in the printer doesn't help much. But I figured it out pretty quickly considering what I've learned so far and it works well. Very excite...

MS Going to Linux?

So Microsoft has done some important things lately that support their use and everyone's use of Linux. I don't have the article I read, nor where I read it, but there seems to be a slight feeling that the company might even come out with a Linux version for consumers and might migrate to it. In time...

I have a Samsung ML 2010 that still runs great (except with cheap paper) laser printer and it is still supported. I'm being told that I need to get with the program of life and get a new All In One printer so I can send in check stubs and other legal stuff. What do you recommend for LM in AiO produc...

Re: Coding in Mint?

I have a very limited income, it's fixed, but I've subscribed to Kindle Unlimited and also purchased or got for free, a number of Udemy classes. I find the books often have mistakes in them, which in a way, teaches you because you have to catch the writer's grammatical and instructional errors. One ...

Re: Coding in Mint?

My BIL codes in C++ for most of his living. He has been a reason for me to try to learn this. We were trying to think of projects because he says books and videos are fine and all, but actually trying to do real stuff is better. So I am hoping I can find sites with partial code or ideas for things t...

Why do I have to use alt-tab to open windows?[SOLVED]

Somehow something has changed and it took a while to realize that change happened (update to 19 or what I don't know). When I shrink a windows my bar on the bottom doesn't show shrunk apps and/or browser windows etcetera and the only way to get to them or change them is with an alt-tab movement. Whe...

Re: Timeshift and required file systems?

catweisel, what methods of backup do you recommend? How often? On what type of backup system? I have no budget, FWIW. So far, I've only used Aptik, but my installs aren't so important, my important files are on storage drives which themselves have duplicates of.

Timeshift and required file systems?

So up until now I had never tried to use timeshift. The upgrade to Tara procedure from 18.3 to 19 requests one use timeshift. I didn't realize that timeshift was using my existing boot and home ssd, the other physical drives are all formatted with NTFS so that I can use them cross OS wise and becaus...
