    Re: Virtualbox usb & hard drive sharing

    Well, I can't help much really as I haven't used Virtualbox for years. I don't know why some people using Linux keep posting for Linux help on this forum when so few people here use Linux. Isn't it...

    Re: Bad update Google Chrome

    Very interesting clip ... reminds me of the "Person of Interest" TV show from a few years ago. A few more surveillance cameras around and we wouldn't be so far off that scenario.

    Re: Bad update Google Chrome

    Try turning off hardware acceleration in Chrome settings (Advanced) as it seems to be a problem in many Linux distros. I have it turned off here in Kubuntu. This Reddit thread might interest you: Why...

    Re: Bad update Google Chrome

    Chrome 86.0.4240.75 is working fine here in Kubuntu 18.04.

    I use Chromium in Manjaro because it is in the main repositories and updates very quickly while Chrome is in the AUR repository and...

  6. Re: Asus K73TA/A73T laptop - Win 10 installation issues: accept, fiddle, or go to 8.1

    My favourite Desktop Environment for about 10 years now is KDE. Plasma 5 is the latest version of KDE. I've tried most Linux DE's but I've never liked any of them more than KDE. It's super...

    Yeah, you pretty much described my brother exactly. He's just so used to Windows and isn't really interested in Linux. Each to their own I guess. :thumbs: Unlike me, he's not a computer nerd. :nerd:...

    Dare I say the "L" word here ... Linux to the rescue!

    I'm running Manjaro Linux on two nine year old HP EliteBook laptops without problems. If you haven't any Linux experience Linux Mint might...

    I can answer this one: try "cp ~/.bashrc ~/.bashrc.bak"

    Just a simple syntax error ... I thought you would have spotted that by now B.M? ;) :blush:

    +1 for "I don't care about cookies" Chrome extension. I've been using it for about a year without any issues and it certainly works.

    I'm going to do the same here. I am in the process of getting fibre hooked up via Voyager/UltraFastFibre and I went with the upfront purchase of the HG659 router as well. It's in limbo though as I...

    It sounds like the fan bearing has just worn out. It's common for desktop fans to wear out and make more noise as they get older, so it's just the same for laptop fans too I suppose. Although you say...

    Re: Toshiba laptop slowed by Win10

    I think even 4Gb ram isn't enough for Windows 10 now. My Kodi box with a Core-i5 CPU came with 4Gb ram and worked OK for a while with Win10 Pro (build 1809) but ever since I upgraded to build 1903 it...
