Re: Gimp immage manipulation

I don't think I was clear enough, I would print out the sheets with the image on it and then she would type her letter and print it out on the pre-printed pages.

Gimp immage manipulation (Resolved)

My wife wants to print out a Christmas letter, she got fancy paper with a Christmas border. Now she would like to print a faint background image in the middle of the paper similar to a watermark and than type her letter over that. Does anyone have any ideas on how to print a faint image like that?

Re: [SOLVED] Does Linux Mint have the same privacy problems as Ubuntu?

Two things, if you are using Firefox go to 'Preferences', 'Privacy and Security' and disable (check) the appropriate items. Secondly, I am using Nordvpn which gets a different IP address every time you log in besides they do not keep tracking records.

I am replacing my older Moto G5+ with a new Moto G7 Power. All of the transfer software that I found is for Windows or iOs. I have my pictures backed up on Google but I would like to transfer my apps, texts and contacts. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for all the help.

On the desktops the first thing that shows up when you select any .mil URL is 'Read s.w-x.co' . I have no idea where that came from or what it does except it interferes with the execution o...

Recording streaming video under linux

I cut the cord and am streaming all of my video over the internet. With HULU and Firestick they have a record option but since my wife likes several shows on PBS they do not have the record option available. Does anyone know about any software which will work under Linux Mint to record PBS shows?
