Peppermint / Re: Peppermint 8 live USB not responding
« on: Yesterday at 10:12:54 pm »
The problem MAY be Unetbootin itself .. use dd (or Etcher) (or even better mintstick as used in Linux Mint annd Peppermint itself)) to write the Peppermint ISO to the USB stick in Linux.

Or Rufus in Windows.

Unetbootin has been iffy with Peppermint for some time now, and the authors have shown a lack of interest in working with us to remedy the situation.

Android devices / Re: Blackberry Messenger for Android

LOL .. I did ask this 6 years ago, but the BBMessenger app itself still seems to be alive and kicking in 2019 (now with 100,000,000+ 'installs' on play.google.com alone .. Apples app store doesn't give download/install numbers but they do have both BBM and BBM Enterprise) :)

BTW, welcome to the forum.

General Help & Advice / Re: Help needed with dual booting

It's not about it being a "devil word", I'm just wondering why you mentioned Mac at all as it wasn't part of the original question ?

I'd have understood your response if either:-

a) The original question was about a Mac.

b) Somewhere in the topic it became obvious the original poster had a Mac, and loading Vbox/VMware on it would help with his original question.

c) This was a Mac forum.

But as non of those apply I'm wondering why you brought it up ?, and how/why you think it will help the original poster ?

Sorry if it appears I'm being awkward, but it's my job to stop spam posts, and at first your post looked like it might be an automated generic response that could have just been a bot attempting to get past first post approval.

Sure, but this is a Linux forum, and nobody had mentioned Mac/OS X in this topic .. just seemed a  bit random, like "hey did you know budgies like chocolate".

It's a hard question to answer because I've never really looked for how accurate the file transfer dialog is

Maybe try something with Xfce such as MX Linux

or maybe give PeppermintOS a go.

Which Linux distros have you tried ?

Mint's nemo file manager has a progress bar.

Peppermint / Re: Deleting programmes
« on: December 15, 2018, 07:10:32 pm »
Yes, the menu editor.

Right-click the "Menu" button, and select "Edit Applications" .. find the application on the left, then on the right select "Hide in the menu".

Run:
Code: [Select]
rm -v ~/.local/share/applications/google-chrome-beta.desktop
and
Code: [Select]
rm -v ~/.local/share/applications/googlechromebeta.desktop
is it gone from the menu now ?

Linux Solutions / Re: Recomend software for creation of a platform
« on: December 11, 2018, 08:01:32 pm »
Sure you can (as long as it has databases enabled, and you create a db for it).
 
VPS just stands for virtual private server .. if you already have a webserver, and it allows databases, you're good to go.

I take it you mean you're running Windows on your PC, but are having problems getting your router to connect to the internet (or to your PC) ?

Well you can get it here:
https://www.simplemachines.org/

But you'd need a webserver to install it on.
