    Security virus protection

    That's what TAILS was created for.

    Useless icons on screen following installation

    No, what I'm saying is one of these may be your problem dock and that you may want to check if one is installed.

    https://www.journaldev.com/36769/top-best-linux-docks-2020 has some docks listed that could be installed.

    Useless icons on screen following installation

    There is an unrelated library called Cairo IIRC.

    Useless icons on screen following installation

    Try running sudo apt info cairo-dock and see if the program is installed. I know that there are other dock programs available, but I can't think of any right now.

    Resolution

    What version of Linux did you install? (e.g. Ubuntu, Debian, Manjaro) We can't help you until we know a bit more about your system. Also, what desktop environment are you using? (e.g. Plasma, GNOME, Cinnamon)

    Could Linux run malware without needing to start the operating system?

    If I understand your question correctly, I don't think so. If you format the hard drive, you'll essentially be deleting any viruses on your hard drive. With that being said, a virus could potentially be lurking on the EFI system partition if you have a UEFI computer. If that is the case, you may...

    The Linux software that users should know about

    I've reviewed Howdy here, in case anybody is interested in it. I may do more reviews in the future.

    Software review: Howdy

    I found Howdy a few weeks ago while browsing GitHub (that's what programmers do instead of Twitter). It is supposed to be a Linux alternative to Windows Hello. I installed it on my laptop yesterday in order to try it out. My impressions so far: Easy to use if you are familiar with the terminal...

    The Linux software that users should know about

    Starviewer: Alternative to the Aliza MS software earlier mentioned. OpenOrienteering: Has a suite of orienteering software that runs on Linux. I'm going to update the main list again, since it's been a while.

    WINE users....successful or otherwise ?

    Yumi is great. Therefore, I like to use it. ;) Lenovo doesn't seem to enjoy putting their Ideapad firmware on the LFVS, otherwise I'd use fwupd.

    How to customize Lubuntu Linux?

    No... that's a screenshot from a video somebody else made to explain something, if I am correct.

    WINE users....successful or otherwise ?

    If possible, I'd change my vote from "flawless" to this. Things like UEFI updates and LiveUSB creators (e.g. YUMI) just don't work properly on Wine.

    Linux for smartphones (/e/ or another)

    Depending on which phone you have, postmarketOS may be a good solution for you. Keep in mind, though, that on most devices pmOS isn't ready for daily driver status. If you want to buy a Linux phone, check out Purism's Librem 5 or Pine64's PinePhone.

    WINE users....successful or otherwise ?

    Wine works great for the few programs that I run on it occasionally. 7-zip is a great program for archives and supports more formats than Ark, so I use it sometimes. Thanks for that info. I did a cursory install and run of e-Sword for my teacher (who is contemplating Linux to speed up his...
