A friend told me that there is now a version 6 of Libre Office.  I was wondering why my version is not being upgraded.

Is it possible to install the newer version directly?

Mint 18.3 cinnamon 64bit - I upgraded from version 18.2 and when I booted this morning "Sticky Notes" failed to start.

I was asked to check if I had the latest version which I do only updated this month.

 No one had reported the same problem with mint18.3 with this taskbar app.

I was also told to check the system log but I can not find it.

Any help would be appreciated.

Peppermint 8 64bit

As I have done a clean install and I can not find the setting to place the Home, Computer, Trash and Network icons on the desk top.

I had them before............  I tried looking under file settings no joy.

Help please.

I am using peppermint 8 64bit

We previously installed this wifi adapter and it was working fine.

I have not used the wifi for around 8 months but need to use it this coming week so plugged it in and the adapter  was not seen by the system.

There have been 2 Kernel updates since it was installed and just to see I booted using the original Kernel and the adapter was working OK again.
How do I make it work with the new Kernel or do I need to remove the new kernels and if so how do I remove them or force the system to boot from the original.

As always any help would be appreciated.

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 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 / Recomend software for creation of a platform
« on: December 04, 2018, 11:51:06 am »
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.

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.
