Re: How to install second local wordpress site on LAMP?

A little confusion I think because the wordpress download once unzipped is all in a containing folder named 'wordpress'. Normally to make a new wp site once you have created the new database you would create a folder/directory in your localhost root, so in your case you would make the folder /var/w...

Re: How to add LibreOffice to right-click menu?

Don't export a template. The files in the Templates folder are regular, empty files. Just open Writer and save the empty file in Templates. You can also save non-empty files as Templates. Change the font, size, spacing, whatever you want and save the file in Templates. Suppose you have a letterhead...

Re: How to add LibreOffice to right-click menu?

It does depend on the DE version but generally if you right click a file you want to open with LO you should be able to click on "open with something else" or similar. Hit that and tell it to open with LO, and the next time you right click a file of the same type LO should come up on the list of ap...

Re: Experiencing a lot of lag especially with Youtube

Yeah. I'm just waiting for the official upgrade instructions on the linux mint blog so that I can create a backup via timeshift and upgrade without having to wipe everything clean and start over again. Hopefully the problem gets solved after the upgrade.

Re: Experiencing a lot of lag especially with Youtube

Hmm alright. Here is what I will do in that case then. I will wait till an official release of Mint 19. I have to upgrade to a new SSD+HDD anyway, maybe do a complete overhaul of RAM, graphics card etc too. So I'll do that and a fresh install of Mint 19 together. I will also try booting from Live Us...
