Just another one

Post by dennnic » Mon Aug 21, 2017 5:16 pm

Hello world,

Stumbled upon this forum in hopes to find some sort of advice slash tutorial how to install damn popcorn player. Dammit I should have just downloaded the GoT from Piratebay... But I didn't, instead I spend two hours trying to make some gulpfile. Do you really need that for a zipped Popcornplayer? Why don't we just use .exe here?

Anyways, I do like this Linux Mint thing. It's different. Makes you learn some new stuff, but I'm a dentist (still a student though, lasts too long) and all of this woodoo things looks more complex than an upper jaw transplantation.

Starting to feel like those Miss Universe ladies!
...except I'm neither blond, nor pretty.

Anyways2, greetings from Belgrade from a grumpy man.
sudo cheers
why is here no beers smiley

Not sure what Popcorn Player is, but it seems to me that there is a program for bootlegging movies called Popcorn or something. Is that what you are talking about here? If so, we don't allow conversations about bootlegging/piracy/illegal activity here. If it is not, please post a link to it so we can see what you are talking about.

Popcorn Player is a free Android video player to play videos in a pop-up window on Android.
This Android video player runs in the background of your Android phone displaying the video player in the pop-up window.

Update: (July 17, 2013) The player is no longer available in Google Play Store. Check out , Real Player instead.

Because we don't use an operating system that runs .exe files, and most of us here are quite happy about that. Why doesn't Windows use .deb or .rpm or .tar.gz files?

Welcome to the Mint family forums.

And take your time to avoid disappointment.

The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place.

Welcome aboard. Please be aware that discussing piracy is a sure way of getting booted.

Enjoy Linux Mint.

Cheers.

Sorry for my lack of responses, exam period started again...

Woah, I didn't expect so warm welcome! Thanks! It seems I'm gonna stay for a while. Alright, alright, no more piracy stuff, the point of it was just grabbing attention. Which seems to have worked as a charm! :D :D don't boot me, just started to like the OS, give me a week or two, or month. :mrgreen:

I don't know the origins of the mint, but I have to say it, it's one hell of a software! I'm actually pretty sad I haven't find it before... :cry:
