Re: Keyboard boot-up problem

Could you paste the output of dmesg after booting and then after rebooting? It would be interesting to see if the kernel is detecting things differently.

Re: Steam's Proton with proprietary Nvidia drivers

The Aurora Toolset was originally coded in C++, which the Beamdog guys say would require a complete re-write from scratch to be made Linux-compatible. Linux-compatible is different to Wine-compatible. It may just be that Proton is missing some files or hasn't implemented some interfaces the toolset...

Re: Security with local Wordpress (LAMP, XAMPP or what?)

If I were to try WordPress site-building locally on my Linux Mint personal computer as opposed to on a remote server on the Internet, wouldn't I be opening my personal computer to hacker attacks from the Internet? And how could I prevent that? Enable the firewall that comes with Mint so that it den...

Re: Mint 19.1 not finding networked USB drive attatched to my new Vodafone router.

Browsing the network won't work with just Samba any more. But you can still access the share using the computer's IP address. Thank you for your kind reply. Happy to hear there is a way to do it.

Re: Steam's Proton with proprietary Nvidia drivers
