Re: ConvertAll Won't Run After LM18.3 Upgrade

Uninstalled/Reinstalled, same situation.
At least I can sudo ConvertAll in the Terminal to get it to work.

What part of Mississippi are you from?
Thanks again.

Re: ConvertAll Won't Run After LM18.3 Upgrade

Thanks for the info. python3-pyqt4 is already installed on my system.
I'll remove it, then reinstall to see if it fixes these issues.

Re: Where can I change the command to execute when I press the XF86Calculator keyboard combination?

After upgrading from LM18.2 to LM18.3, ConvertAll would not run anymore.
After running ConvertAll via the Terminal as root (sudo -i), ConvertAll runs now.
sudo -i convertall
No more "Segmentation fault" errors.

Re: Watching netflix on 18.2

Spearmint2, Yes, I know that Netflix has been dragging their heels for many years in allowing Linux users to view movies via Netflix, even when I (and millions of others) pay them my hard-earned $$$ to watch Netflix movies. They are not fair, in any sense. I read somewhere that the CEO of Netflix wa...

Re: Watching netflix on 18.2

FF57 Quantum is one big PITA. Trying to play Netflix videos, it says that "pulseaudio" needs to be installed, which it is already installed. ALSA is no longer supported by the Mozilla team. Ha! ALSA worked fine before, why change it to pulseaudio and create countless new issues? Beats me. ...

Re: HDMI Audio

I had the same issue on a Dell Latitude E6500. Solved it by plugging an audio cable from the laptop to the tv. That will work until we find a real "fix".

Just a thought; is the Caps Lock button enabled? Since the passphrase is not working. It gets me every now and then.

I have two 10-year old Dell laptops with an Intel 945GMA Graphics card (onboard) and Stellarium will not run with MESA, so I applied a "fix" that makes Stellarium run in "software mode". Works fine. I looks like you have nVidia graphics. I can't help with that, as my laptop with ...
