Re: "Cannot initiate the connection to archive.ubuntu.com:80"

Try disabling IPv6. Open network settings, select your network and click the gearwheel icon in bottom right to open its settings and then under IPv6 disable that.

Re: install wps office

What is your Linux Mint version and you have have a 32-bit or 64-bit installation? If you're not sure run inxi -S on the terminal and share output here (you can copy text from the terminal through its Edit menu). I don't know wps office but it looks like they only a 64-bit download. Possibly you hav...

Re: How to update libstdc++.so.6?

From where did you install Firefox-ESR 68? You may have the download for wrong OS. As for package libstdc++6 I wouldn't touch it. That 6.0.21 version is the current version for Linux Mint 18.x / Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial. You may risk breaking other software that is compiled against this version if you re...

Re: Recover files after installation.

Stop using the computer immediately. Any further writes to the disk will risk overwriting parts of the disk where delete files would otherwise still be recoverable. Do you still have the Linux Mint installation medium? If not re-download it on another computer and make a bootable USB/DVD from it aga...

Re: install wps office

None of those commands work with offline installers.

To be clear, when you launch the GDebi installer you say it doesn't work. What doesn't work—how doesn't it work—does it give some error?

Re: Can I delete this directory

That looks like the extracted ISO file. Yes, you can delete that. Maybe it won't allow you to delete it and also not change permission so you can delete it. If that is the case, right-click empty spot in your home directory and select Open as Root (or maybe it's called Open as Administrator). In the...

Re: Copying files with special characters (Linux Mint 20)

I assume you're copying from a Linux filesystem to a Windows filesystem like FAT or NTFS. FAT and NTFS filesystems prohibit ? and |, and many other characters, in filenames which Linux filesystems can handle. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filename#Comparison_of_filename_limitations. Can this be ...

Re: Intel integrated graphics good enough?

I'm running one machine on 9 year old Intel CPU (i5-2500K). No issues with Youtube, Netflix, web browsing and some light gaming. You'll be perfectly fine with a current generation Intel Core i3 I think. If you have room in the budget, adding a bit more RAM (say 8GB total instead of just 4GB if that ...

Re: limit on sort file size?

No response from findmnt would in this case mean it's stored where / is stored, so on disk. So no need doe the temp directory in your home directory.

I can't say what's happening. How big a file are we talking about?

Re: Anyone using apt-build to build Mint software from source?

You can recompile packages from the repositories with a few steps, if you don't want to get the development version (what the developer guide has you do) but eg want to apply some patch or customize build configuration options to the version installed on your system. I had need for such in the past ...

Re: limit on sort file size?

If available memory is too small to sort the file, sort will use /tmp to store temporaries. If /tmp is a memory filesystem and the file is too big possibly it can't complete the sort but I'd expect some error. You can check with findmnt /tmp ; if that says FSTYPE tmpfs or similar your /tmp is a memo...
