Re: MX Updater wants to uninstall KdenLive, VLC 3.0.5 and an unused(?) nvidia driver

I ran the upgrade and allowed it to remove VLC, then I updated just now and there were four upgrades. I re-installed VLC and all is well.

If you ran the upgrade and lost VLC, don't worry, it's easy to get it back.

Re: Are you a writer?

I'm currently reading a novel where they use cows to power their "hyperdrive." A big starship can cross the galaxy in days on the power of 500 cows. They took the cow that jumped over the Moon and, by selective breeding, went from a short hop to much longer trips. This is okay with me because I know...

I don't know what changed but the installation of the printer driver went near-automatically, and it presented a USB option again at last. And I was able to print without using any speci...

Re: kwin on xfce
