Re: CCExtractor for MakeMKV Flatpaks

I found ccextractor and put it's location in the config for MakeMKV and get this.
Failed to execute external program 'ccextractor' from location '/var/lib/flatpak/app/com.makemkv.MakeMKV/x86_64/stable/active/files/bin'
So I changed it back to this [ "app_ccextractor = "" ]

Don't know how to fix.

Re: Pale Moon 28.2.0 64 History

I wrote a Time and Attendence app with it. Also most of my experience is in the UNIX world and I've been playing with Linux for many ye...

Re: Schrodinger's VPN - How do I remove this VPN?

Just looked in you tar, file. Don't they provide any verification check? E.g. like a gnupg-signature to verfiy what you download, is what they intended to provide to you?
