Re: [Thnxs for Suggestion]Please suggest which ram should i use

I had a dual channel capable motherboard with mixed 1 and 2GB RAM. I used what I had and it worked reliably, although the full potential of matched, dual channel RAM might not have been realized. In recycling hardware, I've found things generally work fine. If funds permit, sure, maximize the RAM av...

Re: Ver vídeos en smart-TV desde MX

Casting to TV via laptop using MX-17 I think this is? Transmitir a la TV a través de una computadora portátil usando MX-17, ¿creo que es así? The link below discusses wifi and routers. Networks might be one direction to explore, if you have wifi. Do you use any other devices with your TV? El siguien...

Re: Here is my newly found freedom :)

The waiting for mobility devices for months has a certain resonance locally, but I'm grateful we both have access to such resources. May this be universal one day soon. I benefit from wearing hearing aids but the cost would be otherwise be significant (eg. I could easily buy a couple of used cars or...

Re: Formatting USB drive

If only Mint's usb Stick Formatter, without the Mint Live usb Image Writer and Disks tools, was available? I have looked at them all and can appreciate the simplicity of the Formatter, although it's not immediately clear that the user password is required and the progress indicator stops short. If I...

Re: Here is my newly found freedom :)

Is there a USB port?

I noticed the local shopping complex had a charge point, limit one hour, for such devices. I hope you find a couple of options like this.

Sorry you can't overclock it....)

Re: Formatting USB drive

Most usb creators will write over the old iso install without need to erase or reformat the usb first. I have used gnome-multi-writer in the past to put various iso's on usb sticks (you can just do a single usb stick despite the app's name). Mint and Ubuntu usb creators also will write over old ins...

Re: Formatting USB drive

Spare a thought for Floppy discs..... :happy: There was a utility that allowed a multi disc spanning archive to fit using a slightly larger formatting option, from memory. I do think format options are something new Linux users might not consider much until the day they suddenly have a need. As ment...

Re: Formatting USB drive

The Manual does note Gparted can be used to format a USB in preparation for using Live USB Maker, although it may not be obvious to newer users that Gparted is in fact the Linux equivalent of right-click....format (USB device) in another world. Since formatting of USB devices is a relatively common ...

Re: Formatting USB drive

I believe GParted is the conventional means of formatting a USB, although this might be a small leap for non-Linux users to adapt to. As for a utility, perhaps there is a script or other means that bypasses GParted? It may not integrate with Thunar though, I suspect, but be a stand alone widget or s...

here you go...MXPI-new.pngIt's actually in the Package Installer.
The rest is in the section Window Managers. They just made a logical correction. :)
Aha, I had that last on the list to explore, Cheers :happy:
