Software & Applications / Installing TTF Fonts
« Last post by XE1UFO on April 04, 2020, 07:35:29 pm »
Dear Friends:

On Linux Mint and several other OS installs, in order to install a TTF font on my machine, all I had to do was click on the font to add it. In Peppermint, this does not work. I have a number of fonts I need for my documents, plus Greek and Hebrew fonts. Can somebody show me how to install them please?

Thanks in advance!

Hello, my friends. Greetings from central Mexico.

I am no expert, but I have been addicted to Linux for many years, ever since Mandrake 7.3.  :D

I want to share this, in case somebody else has a similar problem.

I have a new Lenovo Yoga 330 which I gladly recieved as a gift about 10 days ago. I did not like the fact that the hard drive was only 120 GB. However, it has an M.2 slot, into which I mounted a 1-terabyte WD drive. Awesome!

My problem began today, when I upgraded the kernel using the totally-amazing UKUU (Ubuntu Kernel Updating Utility). Suddenly my wifi could see several connections, but never connect to any of them, no matter what. The solution was simple. On startup, I sellect the seccond option from the boot loader to give me Linux choices, and sellect an older kernel. It connects to wifi with no problems at all.

I also had this very same problem on my Lenovo X260, with the latest UKUU-provided kernal not allowing connections.

The newer kernels which UKUU provided also fixed previous connection problems with my Bluetooth headsets.

Hopefully this info will help somebody else.

Be very blessed and coronavirus-free.

I ordered a couple of Intel Desktop Adapter PRO/1000 GT Low Profile PWLA8391GTLBLK nics, for my 'new' Dell 7010 i7 DT boxes.

It's probably over-kill, but I hate the pseudo, integrated nics that are baked into motherboards. Separate, dedicated  plug-in cards work better, and use fewer system resources, IMO.

Intel PWLA8391GTLBLK nics are my go-to card, and all of my desktops have them. I found two (2) of these nics on eBay, in "Never used. Pulled from unused machines" condition, for $22.97 (to the door). They arrived today, and look/work like new -- plus, they came with the optional, relatively rare, low-profile bracket(s):

These cards only take a couple of minutes to install, so I immediately threw them in the boxes and tested them:

Perfect!  I have a 60/5 mbps bonded pair VDSL connection, here at the abode, and the nics are (basically) running at full-speed, with IPv4 & IPv6 connectivity.

Guess I'll start looking for a couple of dedicated graphic cards now, in order to get them off the bus, too.

Onward and upward...   8)
