Re: Cant install anything :(

update manager was open , i closed it but the problem remained As I have, you can turn off the "mint update" which runs at boot - it should be listed in your "startup" applications. After you turn it off, just make sure to: - in synaptic, hit "Reload" before doing installs. - in a terminal, do "sud...

When I open a gnome terminal, I get this message:
The program 'VBoxClient' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:
sudo apt install virtualbox-guest-x11
What output do you get if you open a gnome-terminal, then enter in it

Re: Copying 18.2 Install to New Hard Drive

... I deleted all partitions, used a Mint 18.2 64-bit USB stick, and used the "do something else" option to make three new partitions (root, home, swap, 30GB, 940GB, 30 GB) and installed a new and clean version of 18.2 on the drive. That creates the MBR. After that you can just delete the new OS wi...

Re: Should I use Wine or run Mint in virtual machine?

Hello, i have been using Linux Mint through the last 2 years for my daily work but actually the company I work for doesn't support officially any OS that is not Windows or MacOs. That's a herd of Unicorns! At this point I believe I have only 2 options, install Outlook 365 through Wine (if it even w...

Re: Photozoom Pro Alternative

Thanks too both. Very helpful. I got a reply from Ben Vista, who also recommended running P-Zoom under Wine. Wine 3.0 seems to work A LOT better for some graphics programs (e.g. photoshop) than previous versions; for Mint 18.3 I use this repo: deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ xenial ma...

Re: How to set a function for mouse middle button ?!

I disagree with it being used to Paste, the Middle Button should be used to "Open Link in New Tab" as mine always has. Here the middle button opens a link in new tab when it's over a link (firefox anyway), and pastes text when it's over a text area or terminal; but I just use it for scrolling and n...

At present Photozoom Pro (Ben Vista) is not compatible with Linux. It seems to run well under 'wine'. Results are almost identical to those produced by irfan-view (which has several sinc/spline methods), somewhat better looking than gimp produces - though a slight sharpening seems to fix most of th...

Re: Copying 18.2 Install to New Hard Drive

I plan to use clonezilla 2.4.7.6 in the partition to partition mode to copy the root, home, and swap partitions from the old drive to the new. Should this give me a bootable drive with all apps intact and working? No. Unless you copy the entire disk you'll miss the MBR and will have to do the "grub...

Re: Mint wo'nt boot even after entering good passwd

How to fix this? Is there any way perhaps to rebuild a generic home directory--without a total re-install? After you boot into recovery/single/console mode (whatever it's called), try find $HOME ! -user $USER if you don't own the files, take ownership of them, then see if you can login (w/GUI). Aft...
