Re: Firefox/waterfox and DNSSEC - what default to choose?

I get your point, what I do not understand is why anyone who is concerned with dns privacy would want to fiddle around with their browser, trying to have it use a separate dns resolver, and yet leave their entire system using their local providers dns server.....does not make sense to me......but wh...

Re: Firefox/waterfox and DNSSEC - what default to choose?

Vpn is off topic? You were concerned about dns resolution, I stated that is why you should be using a vpn (which have there own dns servers) and NO they are not all in the USA. the vpn I used is based in Panama so the US has no jurisdiction in Panama, and the provider keeps zero logs which means the...

Re: problem with gdebi (SolydX, ee)

I just checked and skype is available on Flatpak. It is ver 8.44.0.40 It is in the Flathub repository (which is the official Flatpak repository). I installed it via Flatpak on my system and it works just fine. I've also removed it from my system as I do not use skype.

Re: NordVPN Indicator

This is why I chose NordVPN as my vpn provider. They are based in Panama, so they are not accountable to the Five Eye countries. They keep no logs. I am not doing anything illegal, but I do not want the NSA,CIA, or Lord knows what other US Government agency spying/snooping on my Internet traffic. Ev...

Re: Ancestris Genealogy program

I stand corrected... My answer should have been....You shouldn't install Ubumtu specific programs in Debian. instead of .....You can't install Ubumtu specific programs in Debian I never...ever install any Ubuntu specific program on my Debian system. If the developer can't/won't make a Debian version...

Re: Ancestris Genealogy program

It is an Ubuntu program. You can't install Ubumtu specific programs in Debian, which solydxee is based on. Probably some dependencies that are not resolvable. Just a guess.....

Re: can't boot SolydK from USB

If you only have Windows on your pc download Rufus. That is the best program to create usbs with, but it is a Windows only program.

Re: [Solved] How to install Libreoffice 6.1 from debian backports

Danielx, Glad to see you researched flatpak. It really is the future way to use/install software. Linux Mint LMDE 3 already has flatpak support in their Sotware Manager. Hopefully the SolydxK team will build support into SolydXK in the future. The SolydXK devs are really smart/sharp and I'm sure the...

Install LibreOffice using flatpak. You always get the latest version. Runs in a sandbox mode on your system.

Re: [Solved] Create USB pendrive boot mode UEFI

Just wanted to follow up on this subject. What ilu said is technically correct. You do not need Etcher to make a bootable usb disk. If you like going thru 5 steps to make a bootable usb disk follow what ilu says and it will work. I on the other hand like to do things quickly. Etcher is a one step pr...

Re: Create USB pendrive boot mode UEFI

Best program to create bootable usb/pendrives is call Etcher. Add this to your repository list, deb https://dl.bintray.com/resin-io/debian/ stable etcher , refresh apt and install Etcher.

Re: Clone partitions with Gparted

Oopps, I just noticed in my reply that I stated sda4=150G on your original HD and new HD has a 100G partition, that won't work. My bad. New sda4 would have to be >=150G.

Re: Clone partitions with Gparted

One other thing, if you decide to use Clonezailla, download and install TuxBoot. It will download the latest stable version of Clonezilla and create a bootable USB for you. It works much much better than unetbootin.

You could use Clonezilla to clone your original HD ,then restore the the image t your new HD, then use gparted to resize and/or move your partitions on your new HD. Better yet create on your new HD the partitions, creating them to the size you want and the location you want. Then use Clonezilla to r...

Re: Clone partitions with Gparted

Clonezilla will do what you need. It makes a complete image of your HD, and so long as your new HD is the same size or larger than the original, you can restore to the new disk. Clonezilla will recreate the partition table from your original disk during the backup. I've been using Clonezilla for the...
