I have a question that's sort of off the wall, but please bear with me. I have a Kindle tablet that has a mirroring feature built in to its display and sound settings that allows me to mirror the Kindle on my Samsung smart TV, working through WiFi. I'm wondering if there's a Linux application that w...

I think those who depend a lot on iTunes may also have a problem fully switching, although I'm not an Apple user and am not sure if it's easier now with iCloud. Yep. The iTunes incompatibility with Linux was almost a deal breaker for me (for the iPhone, not for Linux). Fortunately, I find it's poss...

I rarely (never) have a need to copy or paste the output results of md5sum when verifying the hash code of a file because I don't check the entire 32-character string; I only eyeball the first 4 or the last 4 characters. If those match the published results, I assume the file is good. Why? Because I...

If you are a KDE aficionado, you can create an md5sum action in Dolphin. Copy this code into a xxx.desktop file in the directory /usr/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus/ [Desktop Entry] Type=Service ServiceTypes=KonqPopupMenu/Plugin MimeType=application/x-iso;application/x-cd-image;inode/ISO-image; Ic...

[ Using the latest Google Chrome (updated yesterday) I'm asked to enter the name of my television provider. When I enter the name of the provider, I'm told it can't be found. Probably because your not local. Did you try using Chrome instead of Firefox? I keep both browsers on my system because of s...

Win7 & FFox has a newer version of flash, so that is probably why it was just click and watch for her. Have you used MX Flash Manager to update? Updating flash with the MX updater using Firefox won't make any difference (I did that). Using Google Chrome got rid of the flash message, but it want...

Multimedia packages can be very tricky to install on Linux. Dependencies of one package can conflict with dependencies in other packages, leading you to an either/or choice. My suggestions: 1. Post a formal package request in this forum for a version of Handbrake that resolves those conflicts. Our p...

If the DVD came from Sweden, it's formatted PAL. You didn't say where your parents actually live, but I'll guess it's North America, in which case you'll need to convert the DVD to NTSC. The best way to handle this is to rip the DVD using Handbrake to make an .mp4 or .mkv file, then use Devede to ma...
