Re: Firejail

Well, yes, in your case you could have just delete everything in the directory :lol: The command makes sure any other readers don't delete other files by accident.

Re: Firejail

This should do it if you don't have firecfg:
sudo find -P /usr/local/bin/ -lname /usr/bin/firejail -print -delete

That finds all files in /usr/local/bin/ that are a link to /usr/bin/firejail, prints their name and then deletes them.

Re: Firejail

Firecfg installs symbolics links to for the programs on your system for which there is a firejail profile, so that those programs are run with firejail by default. Uninstalling firejail wouldn't remove those symbolic links, but it would break them so that they aren't used—until you install firejail ...

Re: 18.3 vs 19.0 what is recommended for non linux expert?

The Input method settings in Cinnamon appear to install fcitx when you select Japanese. I can't make heads or tails of fcitx; it appears to do precisely nothing aside from launching a status icon. Even install fcitx-anthy which for some reason Input method didn't install for Japanese, selecting that...

Re: 18.3 vs 19.0 what is recommended for non linux expert?

While it's true newer versions of software can introduce new bugs (and regressions), newer versions also fix existing bugs. Linux Mint 18.3, and its package base Ubuntu 16.04, are in maintenance mode and only get fixes for security issues and critical, show stopping, bugs that would affect large num...

Re: Darktable 2.4 no longer starts on Linux Mint 18.3 “Sylvia”

jasper is the source name; from it can be compiled several different packages. That's quite common, that a source gets split into multiple packages on your system. For brevity Linux Mint shows them all under their source name, to reduce the number of packages shown in the Update Manager list. You sh...

Okay, to be clear: Update Manager will offer you libjasper1 from that PPA again as an upgrade. Options: - You can deselect it manually whenever installing upgrades through Update Manager - You could add libjasper1 to the blacklist in Edit > Preferences menu of Update Manager Both will mean you won't...

Re: Darktable 2.4 no longer starts on Linux Mint 18.3 “Sylvia”

This shows your libjasper1 library not coming from the official repositories, but from some PPA you added. The PPA page seems to be one giant warning about things that can break: https://launchpad.net/~anton+/+archive/ubuntu/photo-video-apps?field.series_filter=xenial You can try downgrading the lib...

That file comes from the package libjasper1. Check whether it is installed and from where: apt policy libjasper1 Check the files Darktable needs are there: ls -l /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libjasper.so.1* If the files aren't there but the package shows as installed, reinstall it with: apt install --r...

Re: MS loves Linux? What proof would YOU like to see of that?

An interesting question. Microsoft undoubtedly only loves Linux for clouds and servers, not as a competing OS for consumer devices. So whether their love for Linux is genuine or not, it's a bit moot for us here right? I think they will be doing little of immediate use for us here.

Yes, Cinnamon 4.0 will ship to LMDE 3: https://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=3644#comment-145731

Likely LMDE 3 will get the improvements from the current development cycle a little bit ahead of the Linux Mint 19.1 release.
