Re: Speakup Backdoor - Is Mint susceptible?

First off, Linux Mint is developed as an operating system for desktops/laptops—not for servers. You can use Linux Mint for that but it makes more sense to select an operating system specifically developed for server use. As I read it this Trojan can only affect systems running server software, like ...

They are site crawlers. They visit websites periodically. They have a lot more websites to crawl than just our forum.

Re: LastPass installed OK (I think) but how do I run it?

Welcome to the Linux Mint forums. If you installed the "LastPass Universal Linux Installer" from https://lastpass.com/misc_download2.php then you'll find LastPass in your web browsers. There's no desktop client on Linux, just web browser extensions. There should be a LastPass icon in the toolbar, pr...

Re: Latest version of GNUCash

The current version of GNUCash is 3.4. The Ubuntu and Debian package bases used by respectively Linux Mint and LMDE releases only have GNUCash version 2.6. There's also no current PPA that will give you a newer GNUCash version. For Linux Mint 18.3 and newer you can install GNUCash 3.2 through Softwa...

Re: IntelliJ can't find JDK

I don't know IntelliJ but I would be surprised if it doesn't know itself where to find the JDKs in the default path. Can also not imagine it not working with Java 11 or not with OpenJDK (seeing as that is the reference implementation for Java). Talk about false advertising if any of that is not so. ...

Re: New to automation/scripting, Switch to python?

There's ways to improve on your script (require root at start, prompt for questions upfront or even go as far to automate the question away, and replace all echo's with a simple single here document) but it's good to have a working script and be able to iteratively improve it as you learn more about...

Re: Acer Nitro AN15-51 linux mint support

Linux Mint doesn't do Linux kernel (driver) development. It would up to Acer and its suppliers to contribute driver code for their components to the Linux kernel.

If you have any specific issues with your hardware that you need help with make a new topic for those in the support section of the forum.

Flatpak is a way to make software available on all Linux distros with a single package, not just for D...

Re: IntelliJ can't find JDK

JDK (java development kit) is something other than the JVM (java virtual machine). Asking the obvious perhaps but did you install the openjdk-11-jdk package to get the JDK for your system?

Re: Update Manager and Linux kernels

I think you're running Linux Mint 19. Your Update Manager by default shows and selects all kernel updates and (kernel and non-kernel) security updates for installation. You don't need to do anything besides that. When you look in the View > Linux kernels menu you should see you have the most recent ...

Re: software question

Reviews in Ubuntu's Software Center are separate from reviews in Linux Mint's Software Manager. These programs are unrelated.

Linux Mint users have been reviewing software for at least 10 years. "fairly new" makes me think you're 80 :)

Re: software question

It only shows reviews of other Linux Mint users and indeed only a small fraction of users make reviews. Personally I go about it the other way around; when I need a program for some kind of task, find a program for that task. If you know a program for that from another operating system you can use h...
