General Help & Advice / Update red cross
« on: September 18, 2018, 09:30:06 am »
Have update notice but red cross next to it, I can see that it's for Ubuntu so do this not apply to Mint distro even though based on Ubuntu?

Is the a way to filter updates to only the ones relevent for Mint.

« on: September 13, 2018, 07:15:57 am »
Trying to listen to radio stations through browser (Opera) with radioplayer but getting nothing.RadioPlayer opens but does not play anything.If I try LBC I just get the player opening, for BBC stations I get message to 'enable flash player in browser',but IT IS enabled.Have tried using Radiotray but when I added LBC it wouldn't play and got a large notification about suitable plugins  could not be found.
Can anybody shed any light on getting it to work.

vlc stopped playing streams now... >:(

General Help & Advice / Learning Linux (SOLVED)
« on: September 12, 2018, 06:21:01 am »
It's great having a forum to ask questions but I want to make an effort and try and learn Linux for myself and not be a PITA.So would I be better off going for a book that deals with Linux or one that is specific to Mint (cinnamon ) which I am currently using and can anybody recommend a book/books for an absolute beginner?


General Help & Advice / Starting maximised (SOLVED)
« on: September 10, 2018, 09:49:44 am »
Hello everybody,
I'm new to Linux and hoping to make the switch from Windows and currently duel booting w8 pro with Mint cinnamon and so far I like the look of it.The first problem i've encounted  is that Opera browser won't open maximised unless I leave it maximised when closing it and then it has to open on the last page I was on.
I know it can be done but being a complete novice I need to be talked through the whole process of opening the terminal and inserting/editing command lines.
Can anybody help?
