Re: All browsers have security error on https websites

I don't think this can be a hardware issue. Specifically what error are browsers giving you and which browsers have you tried?

I'd suspect this to be a network issue; you being on a guest network. Or are you using a VPN where you are staying?

Re: XDG-OPEN

xdg-open is a key component of your operating system. It's needed. Do not remove it!

The solution is to find why your Chrome browser is calling xdg-open when it doesn't need to.

Does this issue happen with other web browsers as well? Like try with Firefox.

Re: XDG-OPEN

xdg-open is a command to open a file or link with the default program for its type. Like xdg-open https://linuxmint.com would open the Linux Mint website in your default web browser. It can similarly be called for files on your system to open them with default program, like documents or images. You ...

Re: Can anyone help me configure Tilix

Install dconf-tools so you get the dconf Editor program in your menu. Start that and navigate to /com/gexperts/Tilix/profiles/<some long sequence of numbers and letters> and you'll find the custom-command setting there. Click it and select to Use default value or delete the Custom value, if that is ...

Re: FOR OLD MAC: Is LXDE Mint 12 the latest?

To be clear, Linux Mint does not—nor has ever—run on PowerPC architecture. It runs on x86 or x86-64 architecture; on CPUs from Intel or AMD (or if you're a masochist, VIA). You won't be able to use Linux Mint on an iBook G4. The iBook G4 has a 32-bit PowerPC G4 CPU. I think Ubuntu 14.04 was the last...

Try installing python-qt4 (apt install python-qt4). I think that provides PyQt4.QtCore for Python 2.

Re: One LibreOffice can open .dbf file, one cannot?

Sounds like something to ask in the Lubuntu support forum. Can't move this there from here. Give them a test .dbf file to try and reproduce the issue. You were unclear as to your Lubuntu version. Assuming you meant you have Lubuntu 18.10 and not Lubuntu 18.04 you indeed have a different LibreOffice ...

Re: Linux Mint 17.x reaches end of life in April

Since LM 17 is ( or was/has been/whatever) so popular, why can't it be supported longer like it's been the case with LM 13? Both Linux Mint 13 and Linux Mint 17 were supported for 5 years. No difference. Ubuntu 14.04 is supported for longer, if you're willing to share in the costs of doing Extended...

Re: Mint Box links stale?

Linux Mint does not run ads for itself on the website, so this isn't something we control. We can't place from where the ad could be.

Should anyone see this ad again, could you take as screenshot and share it?

You can simply download the .jnlp applet file and then run it on your computer using Java Web Start (javaws). For this you need to install i...
