Have you updated youtube-dl recently ? YT is famous for making small changes so people cannot download from them.

Use this Terminal command: sudo youtube-dl -U

Re: Wine and security?

The games I intend playing are low resource and do not require connection to the internet. This is fine. Might I also suggest you install PlayOnLinux in addition to Wine. It is a graphical front-end for Wine, and I find it makes things much easier to install. With P.O.L. you can even install differ...

Re: LinuxMint on a dual Xeon system

I would like to suggest that you consider using/installing Nvidia graphics hardware (Quadro?). Nvidia provides great linux support. AMD support for linux has recently changed, and you may run into problems with AMD drivers where intensive graphics rendering is needed.

Suggestion: I would read up on Glabels to see if they have preset macros (templates?) for that.

Re: Firefox Home page?

Check Firefox's Preferences > Home section, and under Windows & Tabs you should be able to choose Firefox Home from the drop down list. (I like it too) :)
If it isn't available, try the Restore Defaults button.

Open Synaptic Package Manager, use the quick-search to find TTD, and right-click on it. Then choose Properties from the pop-up, and go to the Installed Files tab, you will see where everything is located.

Re: Black Screen

Windows cannot see or use Linux ext4 file systems. The other way, Linux can see and use windows file systems.
Suggestion: If you need to copy or move files from within windows, create an ntfs partition on your linux ssd, and share it in linux, then windows should see and be able to use it.

Looks like it doesn't like the higher version of Python that is in the newer versions of Mint.

Re: Soft to coletct inspirational quotes

If you want to put them in book form with different chapters for different themes etc of your quotes, Kabikaboo is a nice, simple program. You can easily scrub the book parts you don't need or want.
It's available in the Software Manager and/or Synaptic Package Manager.
