Aren't those the same commands I posted earlier in this thread? If the commands didn't work cleanly it would help to know what went wrong and what you did to fix it. Thanks.

sorry just doing commands without a little help with my little lknowledge after over a decade of trying to get linus to work i just need some hand holding which many of you don't want to deal with - just been there and done that. the first ubuntu forums people would tewll you runb this and run that and run this and run that and most knew enough to be dangerous so they basically wrecked your system and no help getting back out of the rabbit hole so just been there as long as my systems were working as good as they were with absolute minimal issues i would rather leave as is than to mess them - i rely on them for stuff and spend a great deal of time setting them all up and being the it guy here i just hate dealing with many laptops. sorry - have too much to do here with dogs, and a very sick one too - chickens garden and vineyards and other farm chores and firewood to cut and wine and prters/ales to make i do not want to be wrecking my system. truth.

And I thought I was going through a bad time. Really sorry to hear about the sick dog. I've lost a few cats in my time, and it breaks my heart just to remember them. I hope your pooch recovers soon.

Fortunately, I don't think there are too many trolls around here, and you can trust the regular posters on the Bodhi forum.

Back in the early 2000s, one of my friends recommended doing a fresh install of Windows XP every 6 months or so, saying that it speeded up the system considerably and he could clear out the dross and lose the apps he no longer needed. I find it's the same with Bodhi. It's quick to re-install, and the command file I've posted on another thread brings it back to working condition pretty soon (usually less than a morning's work). Just make sure you regularly back up your data files to an external device (which is good practice anyway). Once you've done a re-install a few times, you tend to lose all fear of screwing up the system, because recovery is always possible.

Please feel free to share around the wine and beers you make!

my dog has had multiple strokes and as a k-9 trainer and he being one of if not the best dog i have had in 65 yrs he has been hanging in there.

the install is fine but the tweaing to my neeeds is a nightmare.

i do not have that time to waste once i get it all going.


also had some idiot on his cell phone hit me from behind at 40 mph and total my pristine older vehicle and getting squat from the guys ins co. in the future so no vehicle and no $ to get another even a decent used one so - 2019 has been one bitch of a year so far.
plus med issues to and totally blown out knee from 30 yrs arthritis.



enjoying a couple of porters - i wake at 4am
so did a lot and now just chilling and may have a bottle of wine to eval. make some food and regroup for tomorrow and firewood all am. plus cold - just put wood in the stove.

So sorry to hear you've so much bad stuff going on at the moment. The best I can do is to send you some good vibes from this side of the Atlantic and hope they help you cope.

i have found itsfoss to be very helpful in my linux learning journey as well. the combination of commands with pictures and descriptions of what is expected helps a visual learner like myself. sometimes just seeing the command (or even reading the man page) just doesn't do the trick to help me understand what i am supposed to do

Thanks for the heads-up. It's always handy to know where there's good quality teaching materials.

Having said that, ever since the content-scrambling scheme was defeated, the “industry” has been trying to introduce more and more tricky content-protection techniques to their most “valuable” DVD releases. Consequently, some DVDs may be particularly hard to successfully play on Linux, or, by extension, on anything but official DVD players.
have to ask - why is this not included in linux? or in VLC? the libdvdcss file/package i mean. just curious.

The US, and other, governments were told by the movie industry they must implement laws backing DRM or the movie industry would stop bribing, oh, sorry, I mean "government relations" them.

I usually install ubuntu-restricted-extras from the repository, which contains all kinds of goodies including support for DVD playback as well as Truetype fonts such as Times New Roman and Arial. It does not include libdvdcss2 which as stated above, you also need.
