Re: Entering Password Into Terminal Window

Every time I get to "Enter password" when using the terminal window, the cursor is blinking but typing doesn't input any characters. The letters are there, you just don't see them. I suppose it's a security feature - nobody can see how many characters in the password, but It'd be nice if there were...

Re: How to Install a Software App from a tar.gz

I've extracted the folder from the archive. I can see inside the folder that there is a file called "chaotica" that seems to be a program, but I cannot execute it (tried running it from the command line). It would help if you said what happened - error messages, etc - rather than what didn't happen...

Re: Re-allocate "unallocated" disk space

/dev/sda1 Is LM 17.3 So I am also hoping to keep 17.3 (offline) wasn't quite right. /dev/sda2 Is LM 19.1 No, sda2 is the extended partition holding sda6, which has LM 19.1. If, indeed, sda6 holds LM 19.1 and you want to add the unallocated space to sda6, boot LM 17.3 (on sda1), move the left side o...

Re: Re-allocate "unallocated" disk space

As you can see, all I have managed to do so far, is to lumber myself with a 204gb chunk of "unallocated" space on my hard disc. So - Can this space be merged to the 19.1 partition? I'm hoping so.......... ... I am also hoping to keep 17.3 (offline) So sda1 = Mint 19 (you did the screen-shot in Mint...

Check the "Trash".

You could also ... look for the files!

Re: Audacity, LM19 and LM19.1, correct input source?

Install "pavucontrol" if you don't have it. Run it from a terminal if it's not in a menu. Note the "Monitor of ..." setting in the picture: https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/tutorial_recording_computer_playback_on_linux.html That's what lets you "record what you hear."

However, I tried downloading Apache2/LAMP via terminal and was impressed with how powerful it is doing it this way (as I read it is generally).
"Downloading" doesn't describe how you installed it. The downloaded file(s) could be source code, a .deb file, a flatpak, etc.

It says it can't open ccextractor. I've found the file it keeps complaining about. It's in the /root directory. If true, that's likely to be the, or a, problem, since that's not normally where any software is installed. What does sudo ls -l /root/ccextractor* return? (edit: added 'sudo' since norma...
