MX-18.1 I can not start handbrake

Good evening,
i have installed handbrake, both over
- Welcome > Popular applications as well as over
- synaptic

I can not start from the gui it, even not by typing ghb in the terminal.

Does the ghb need to be preceded by a command in the terminal?

Greetings
Karl

(solved) Re: Which program other than KODI can easily play media via uPnP?

@Stevo
@Eadwine Rose

Thank you both very much.
This is what I was looking for.

I am using KODI for two years now,
but never found the way to switch to windowed mode.

And now it is so easy with your help.
Thank you again.

Best wishes
Karl

Re: Which program other than KODI can easily play media via uPnP?

@timkb4cq

Thank you for helping.

I tried both, Kaffeine and MPV.
They can not access files via UPnP (DLNA).

Do you know a file manager that can handle UPnP (DLNA)?

The one included in MX-18 only handles Windows-networks network:///

(solved) Which program other than KODI can easily play media via uPnP?

Good evening. Since today I (finally) have a Fritzbox as WLAN (WIFI) router. Now I want to use uPnP to access media data stored on a USB stick connected to the Fritzbox. Of course I tried KODI. Big problem for me: KODI runs in an exclusive window, so I can't work with other programs in other windows...

Re: Sophos free installation fails on MX-18 (Antivirus software)

So, probably my last post regarding antivirus on linux. www.heise.de has released a great malware scanning tool: Desinfec't I have known it for years as a kind of reference tool, for prevention and when nothing works anymore. Unfortunately "only" an ondemand solution. The editor I just quoted writes...

Re: Sophos free installation fails on MX-18 (Antivirus software)

An editor of the computer journal c`t (Computertechnik) of the publishing house heise (www.heise.de) just wrote to a reader: "By the way, I advise against using ClamAV if you can't interpret the scan results yourself. ClamAV brings many false positives, which you have to unravel with difficulty. Cla...

Re: Sophos free installation fails on MX-18 (Antivirus software)

@Mauser I just read a pretty recent test on antivirus solutions for Linux and Clam-AV is very, very bad at detection. Both for Windows and Linux malware. If you want to see the comparison test, I can post the link here in the forum later (is in German, but the table can probably be interpreted witho...
