General Help & Advice / Re: Need to update fixed version of wine
« on: December 13, 2018, 02:10:40 pm »
I am not sure that is the case as my Play on Linux asks if I wont to create a 64bit or 32bit virtual drive.

Thus I presume that wine is available in both 64bit and 32bit versions.

You helped me to install the present version so that I could install office 2007 and the version has been fixed since that time and I am never offered Wine updates.

I have 6 programs installed using this version of wine and I want to keep them.  So how do I install a newer 32bit version of Wine that is the question.

Running mint 18.2 64bit cinnamon

Some years ago I got instruction on this forum how to install a 32bit version of wine on my 64bit system.

The wine version 1.6.2.0 has been fixed since that time.

Now to install a new version of MS office I need to install a newer version of wine.

How do I install a newer version whilst keeping it the 32bit version of wine?

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Linux Solutions / Re: Recomend software for creation of a platform

Thanks for this I have seen this software before,
What is a VPS webserver?

Is it possible to test this type of software by uploading it to an existing server such as the one where our website is hosted?

I do not want to pay for a VPS if the project is not going ahead and it will only go ahead if I can demonstrate what the software offers.

A platform is like an up market forum that may also include chatrooms.

The ability to restrict access to different areas of the site to different levels of membership is important.

I have experience of setting up websites using a range of windows software packages.

Would prefer to move to Linux software package for this new project.

We are looking for a software package that works with Linux (also windows would be an advantage).

We want to set up a platform with a number of subject rooms up to 20. User security is of importance as is the look of the finished site.

We need something that looks as if it is modern and we are willing to pay a small fee for the right software.

Any suggestions or recommendations welcome.

Thank you.

General Help & Advice / Presentation freezes
« on: December 04, 2018, 11:40:21 am »
SAMSUNG R60plus using a recent version of Peppermint 64bit.

I use this computer to display a revolving photographic selection around 200 photos.

After about an hour of operation it freezes on one photo and all keys on the keyboard and the mouse are also frozen.

The only option is to restart I have tried using both the software options that come with Peppermint.

Any suggestion please.

Today it ran for 2hours using a different software for the slideshow then it again just froze.  I was checking the GPU temp and it was normal the system just stops responding.

Anyone have any thoughts.

Doing this opens the older version but the newer version is still on my computer.

All the desktop icons open the newer version.

I want to remove the newer version by installing the 52.9.1 version how do I do this?

I am using mint 18.3 64bit.

Thunderbird was updated and all my add-ons stopped working.  I need to return to a version where the add-ons were working.

I have downloaded the zip file for Thunderbird 52.9.1 known to work with my add-ons.

How do I install  the downloaded file.

Thanks in advance.

Have done this and a couple of items were detected and added to the system.

Will test for awhile to see if this has made a difference but I think that the fan speed is changing depending on the load.........

Thanks.

I moved to Linux when XP finished and never looked back  I use both mint and peppermint on different computers.

As has been said make a live usb for each and try them out.

Good hunting....

Peppermint / How to incresse fan speed on my laptop? (resolved)
« on: July 20, 2018, 10:48:32 am »
I am running Peppermint 8 64bit on my old Samsung R60 plus.

Is it possible to increase the speed of the fan?
The speed never seems to change even when the system is operating under a heavy load.

Yes some times the laptop shuts down due to over heating because the fan is running so slowly.

Any help welcome.
