Packages needed to play DVD's are in separate repository
You can add the multiverse repository to Ubuntu
Code: [Select]
sudo add-apt-repository multiverse
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt install libdvd-pkg
then
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg-reconfigure libdvd-pkg

Once complete, reboot your system and you should be able to play DVD in your Ubuntu system.

Linux Support / MPV Media player doesn´t play my DVDs on Ubuntu

Guys MPV doesn´t play my DVDs from my plug in DVD drive on my Ubuntu MacBook. When I launch the icon a box comes up which says to drop files or a URL but there is nothing in it to do it with.

Just as a general comment - I tend to use the default font size supplied with the browser then use "CTRL+mouse wheel" to change the zoom level for specific sites if the size is off. There "can" be adverse formatting effects on "some" sites if you choose to change the default font size in the browser ...

Linux Support / Re: My scanner doesn´t work on Ubuntu

Hi Melissa

I had the same scanner Melissa with the same issue,

Your scanner needs a firmware file, placed in /usr/share/sane/gt68xx/, I have this file if you private message me your email address I'll send it to you and then help you place it in the right path, if you're not comfortable giving me your email address we'll find another way to pass the file on to you


Graeme

Thank you very much Graeme. I now remember that you had sent me firmware for my Peppermint netbook a couple of years ago. It works great on the netbook so I expect it'll do the trick for the Ubuntu MacBook too.

Hi Guys,
I tried all of the suggestions, but nothing has worked, so I have formatted the hard drive and I am going to install Mint from scratch.

Thank you, Sezo. 

Displayed font size seems to be a combination of browser and web page font sizes.  I've set my FF font size to 14 which suits the average web page but they do vary, and now the Forum font seems rather large to me at my default value. 
You are right that users can change the browser default settings and also alter the "Toggle reader view" in the Firefox address bar, but it would be a nuisance to keep changing it;  hence the enquiry.

Just an observation, on this site, the font size changes to suit the default font size set in the Browser (Firefox in my case). The default font size was set to 16pt. So (for my benefit) I changed it to 12pt and the page rendered as it used to before. Perhaps it is worth mentioning this if somebody has a font size issue when viewing these pages.
