    NAS distro recommendations

    Cannot use LibreOffice Base

    Welcome Hebol, Looking at your screenshot, I see that Base Datenbank is grayed out: it is not black like the other parts of office. I assume that all the other parts work, is that correct? If all this is correct, then Base was not installed when you installed Libre Office. I think that the...

    Decision Source Information

    @Martin Young @Vrai @captain-sensible Welcome Martin! I have been using Linux Mint for about 4-5 years.

    Move Home folder back to default location

    @captain-sensible @Tolkem @Shmu26 Greetings Shmu and welcome, After reading this thread I started thinking - wouldn't it be easier just to save whatever you want to save on a flash drive; and then just re-install Kubuntu 20.04? That would automatically put your home folder back in place. Then...

    Good morning Condo! {It's morning where I am} I have used WINE on my LM 19.3 as well as previous versions of LM. Granted, I am not a gamer so I can only report on the programs I use; which turns out to be one. That one program works very well. {E-Sword is the name of it.} Off for some...

    Learning 'C'.

    @captain-sensible @wizardfromoz @Condobloke @LorenDB @f33dm3bits Thanks to all you guys for your help. I have settled on learning old fashioned 'C' for the present time. After looking at 'C++' and some others, it seems like 'C' is easier for me to grasp. Again, thanks for all your input. OG TC...

    @captain-sensible Cap, As I mentioned in the other place, I pressed the F-12 key and that brought up this: The General USB Flash Disk is the one with slack on it, so I pressed 'enter'. Then this showed up: I pressed enter again and it loaded up and I now have a desktop of slack. Not a...

    I got as far as extracting Ventoy and then to this screen: I extracted it to the Downloads directory, but I see that it's not the right one. I don't know what the right one is. TC
