Re: Manual page for apt incomplete?

What is your question about that observation? It sounds like you've not fully read the manpage. The description section specifically opens with (emphasis mine): apt provides a high-level commandline interface for the package management system. It is intended as an end user interface and enables some...

Re: I'm trying to verify 18.3s ISO

There's a problem currently with the HEAnet mirror to which the verify instructions point. You can get the files from any other mirror here: https://linuxmint.com/mirrors.php

For example from the EvoWise CDN: http://mirrors.evowise.com/linuxmint/stable/18.3/

Re: C or Bash?

I depends entirely on the user in question. What are their goals or needs for learning a programming language. For general users, not programmers, shell scripting (Bash) will likely be the more useful as the learning curve is much shorter. It gets them comfortable on the command line and lets them a...

Re: Windows 7 evaluation period issue

Moved this here as this is a Windows 7 licensing issue and unrelated to either Linux Mint or VirtualBox (Google the issue to see others having the same when they approach the 180 day / 3 times rearm limit). Perhaps use a Windows 7 support forum to get better help with this, or reach out to Microsoft...

Re: KDE excludes gparted?

Assuming you mean on the LiveISO? Because while GParted is on the Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon LiveISO, it isn't installed as default for that.

KDE Partition Manager is included on the Linux Mint 18.3 KDE LiveISO.

Both GParted and KDE Partition Manager are front-ends for Parted.

Re: Custom BBCodes on the forum

I don't think embedding videos adds much for a technical support forum? There is an official extension to enable automatic video embedding but there's several drawbacks to it (like it likely increases server load for all pages and it for sure slows down page load speed on pages that have videos).

Re: Am I the only one who still plays CDs?

I've had some success with Gnoosic And, if you know what genre you like, you could try Every Noise at Once Gnoosic was interesting. Perhaps its due to the 3 artists I picked (I tried a couple of times) from my favorites but the suggestions it came with just confirmed I like my own taste in music be...

Re: Am I the only one who still plays CDs?

There's still some magic to listening to an entire album. [...] It's one of the reasons I don't really care for streaming, or curated music services. I would never throw on some streaming service and play a particular genre and just listen. Same for me. I'll select my own music thank you very much ...

Re: Gimp 2.10 pre-release appimage available

GIMP is also on Flathub (https://flathub.org/apps/details/org.gimp.GIMP) so once 2.10 is released as stable you'll find it on Linux Mint 18.3 in Software Manager's Flatpak category.

I'll revisit this for Linux Mint 19. For Linux Mint 18.3 we do of course still have a KDE ISO you can use. The above tutorial is intended for people that want to add KDE to their existing Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon, MATE or Xfce installation. If the purpose is to be able to use multiple desktop enviro...

Re: Am I the only one who still plays CDs?

I listen to albums but buy them digital. There's not really an option for that either. I do listen to one album at a time, from first to last track, just like CDs. Usually I buy from https://www.qobuz.com/shop as they give you lossless CD quality downloads in FLAC format, with an easy option to down...

Re: Why are bad DNS query results being cached so often on my machine?

To be clear for anybody else reading this; nscd is a name service cache daemon. It is not installed on Linux Mint by default. Linux Mint uses dnsmasq as a local DNS forwarder so that when using VPN connection DNS queries go to the correct network. It is specifically started with DNS caching disabled...
