    Video Not Working

    I was doing some downloading using Youtube-dl yesterday but I wouldn't imagine it's that. Also, if that messed up the settings or something, surely it would be messed up whether or not I put the VPN on. One of my first thoughts on a Windows machine would be a virus but it's Linux.

    Video Not Working

    Hi, I've a strange problem with my video. When I try to watch live sports streams I see nothing. The video doesn't start at all. However, if I connect to the internet using a VPN the same video then plays with no problem at all. I've also tried using my phone and again the same video works even...

    Typing Accents

    Thanks both. (I added my solution to the original thread). Trying with the UK versions of the US versions you suggested - getting some progress though I can't find out how to tail Cs (I know there's a more correct term for this but I'm no grammarian). I'll have a play around because the layout...

    Firewall Blocks My VPN - Solved

    How I solved it was I didn't lol. I worked out how the PureVPN Linux app works so I didn't need to find how to get UFW to work with PureVPN PPTP as the Linux app doesn't conflict with UFW. What PureVPN doesn't make clear, or at least didn't seem to make clear to me, was that its Linux app is a...

    I speak French and Italian as well as English and use forums in all three languages. With Windows I was able to use (I forget the correct name) international UK keyboard or something where I could easily put accents etc. I've tried changing the keyboard settings to various English language...

    Firewall Blocks My VPN - Solved

    To get Pure VPN to work I have to disable my firewall (UFW). It won't connect otherwise. Rather than keeping the firewall disabled whilst using the VPN though, how do I create an exception (this might not be the right term) so that the firewall will allow my VPN to connect? Also, I speak French...

    Newbie: Help Please - Found Traces of Windows After Linux Mint Complete Install

    Thanks all. Yes, it would appear that the only place Windows appears is when I browse C and .wine is present. I didn't format my hard drive before installing Linux but I went with all the standard installation options as they came up (my first idea was to have a dual boot but I couldn't work out...

    Newbie: Help Please - Found Traces of Windows After Linux Mint Complete Install

    I'm new to Linux and am finding the experience really positive so far. I installed Linux Mint 19.2 Cinnamon as a full install (chose to wipe Microsoft Windows). After a little exploring I've found traces of Windows still left in the C drive, e.g. in Program Data folder, Program Files folder etc...
