jpr2's recent activity

  • Replied in HOW?
    intriguing possibility, but... perhaps OP deserves a much broader sketching of technicalities :) jpr2
  • ho, ho, ho - Santas' season seems not to be yet over for you :), Just for the record, what I've said was just the exact opposite: " Afterwards it was Mint 18.2 about two years ago, and most ...
  • yes, indeed I'd be highly interested in details about what went wrong during your attempts to create bootable USM (assume that you've tried with the MX-17.1 ; I'm on the MX-18.9) ? A little bit of ...
  • I'm on the same page as it concerns the Mint (18.2-cinnamon, 18.3-cinnamon & XFCE, 3-LDME) - super easy and it simply works. However, the Mint tool is a very rudimentary, whereas the MX-18.0 ...
  • very good point about differentiating a bit the respective visuals between various guest VMs ! However, this might be perhaps possible only a bit later on, as right now I've found that for the ...
  • after a while (and perhaps thanx to running several rescue mini expeditions gleaned from various Net fora) the thunar started to pop-up their respective device desktop-icons. But alas, like for you ...
  • the MX-18.0 [sort of] works: (1) the install of the MX-18 was a bit problematic, as the initial configuration part was only possible on the text console (the initial GUI did show only a black rectangle ...
  • my (granted, a very rough and fuzzy yet) was that perhaps someone might have already implemented a little linux application that will serve as an intermediary between the linux X11 clipboard - in ...
  • what might be a possible advantage of installing the newer Final-18.0 version: MX-18_x64.iso 2018-12-19 22:14 1.3G over the Final-17.1: MX-17.1_x64.iso 2018-03-13 14:55 1.2G Also, while the purpose ...
  • well, IMO this might be a big plus = that is there ought to be (at least I expect to be a case, but clearly this is just a very beginning of my quest for them) quite a choice available of ...
  • how well (or poor) it might be suited in playing a VirtualBox Host role? Anyone with a bit longer hands-on experience? in relative terms, but... how much it'd be on a real DT machine (that if a HW ...
  • Replied in a workaround?
    thanks a lot, maybe this case nut is getting closer to be cracked, although I'm not sure whether I got you right, so perhaps the recipe is a bit different, but to clarify: (1) I-st a naive question ...
  • the context - is more of a data-harvesting than a security-concerned type. Say, we can reduce the particular to visiting the same (already trusted as well data-rich) site. Moreover, that the said ...
  • that part was easy to check: on a freshly rebooted M 18.3 + freshly launched VB guest VM[s] it already didn't work as expected, alas. Also... the broken (or more precisely non-functional ) copy ...
  • Alas, no - it'd an excellent insight and solution, but unfortunately all of them are from the very same release = 5.2.20 r125813. jpr2
  • Chris, indeed bidirectional clipboard is/was always defined ON in VBox, and supposedly all other relevant settings are set properly as well (that is... as far as I can be a  judge which settings ...
  • Created discussion thread Q: Linux & puzzle of the links
    there is this little thing that got me deeply puzzled (and perhaps it was already discussed, but if so I wasn't able to find it yet): (1) if we decide to embed e.g. here a http link like below - it ...
  • am not sure yet about Qoppa. However the PDFelements (for Win) fulfill this option rather beautifully, in an automated way and working exactly as described: " Scenario 2. Fill Non-Interactive PDF Forms
  • indeed, the top-notch PDF editing linux resources are still pretty scarce, despite already over three years more advances since the link you've posted. Mine own quests so far are in favor of the Ma ...
  • what might be a best SW for PDF manipulation under Linux, esp. important: (1) converting a PDF to an interactive PDF files; (2) editing; (3) concatena ...
