Re: vlc display & Lucky Backup issues 19.3 cinnamon

After a clean install, from the main menu, click on “Start Menu” >> ”Sound and Video” >> ”Install Multimedia Codecs”.
Then, you should be good-to-go.

Re: FireFox so much faster than Chrome - Why?

It could be all the telemetry crud that Chrome uses to send your data to their servers?
I use Firefox and Slimjet in LM; no telemetry, fast as greased lightning.

Re: vlc display & Lucky Backup issues 19.3 cinnamon

Just a thought; Since that PC has an nVidia card, I would go to Menu/Administration/Driver Manager and see if any additional video drivers are available for your card, if so, select the "Recommended" one, install it, reboot, and run VLC. I was thinking all along that it was a video driver ...

Re: vlc display & Lucky Backup issues 19.3 cinnamon

I would do a clean install (with no added apps, etc.) just to see if VLC works out-of-the-box. THEN, I would run Timeshift to create a backup of the OS so you don't have to reinstall again. If VLC does not work correctly, follow the VLC install instructions on my earlier post (2 before this one). Th...

Re: why are linux image editing apps so horrible?

They are not so horrible. It takes time to be proficient at anything, just like when you began using PhotoShop, etc.
GIMP and Blender are great apps, rivaling the competition (Winblows). Everything has a learning curve, so forget about your prior usage of Winblows apps.

Hardware Acceleration IS enabled on all my rigs, and they ALL freeze with every browser except for Firefox & Slimjet.

Re: (SOLVED)Video to MP3

Just remember; that if you get a YouTube video error, update ClipGrab from their website (and repeat the install instructions), as YouTube parameters are always changing.
YouTube will not allow you to download some videos, even with ClipGrab.

Re: Moving Thunderbird profile to older version

When you open TB, the log-in box appears.
Enter password, then check the box "Use Password Manager to remember this password".

You can go to Edit/Preferences/Security/Passwords and setup a Master Password for sites.

Re: Chrome Freezing After Recent System Update

DAMIEN1307, Yessirree Bobcat! The only problem is that Firefox and Slimjet will not play Netflix videos. I use a useragent switcher (been through all the many variable settings), but it's a no-go. I may use a VPN for that purpose. So, Opera works for Netflix, even though it freezes momentarily somet...

Re: vlc display & Lucky Backup issues 19.3 cinnamon

If the entry for multimedia codecs is not in the Sound & Video menu, they are already installed. One more thing. Open the Terminal and run: (just to make sure ALL codecs are installed on this PC) sudo aptitude install ubuntu-restricted-extras mint-meta-codecs Reboot and test video files via VLC.

Re: Moving Thunderbird profile to older version

You may want to try this;
1. Copy the Windows TB profile folder (ex.: 2h92vl7r.default) to the /home/username/.thunderbird folder.
2. Exit.
3. Reboot.

It worked for me.
Good luck.

Re: vlc display & Lucky Backup issues 19.3 cinnamon

Try this FIRST;
Remove/purge VLC:
sudo apt autoremove --purge vlc*
Reboot.

Reinstall VLC:
sudo apt install vlc

If that doesn't work;
Create a LM Live CD/USB and boot from it.
See if VLC runs correctly.
If not, I would reinstall LM.

Re: Video to MP3

I use ClipGrab (clipgrab.org).
Converts YouTube videos to .mp4/.mp3/etc., on-the-fly (real-time). Save converted files in Downloads folder.
If you get a YouTube video error, update ClipGrab from their website, as YouTube parameters are always changing.
