    How to connect dial-up in Mint 20.2

    Ok Stan, thanks for the broader understanding. I like to keep apps within the machine, especially if one needs an internet connection to use it. Living on dialup I really notice the difference between a 9k connection and a 28k, which is the fastest I ever see. At 9 some things never load...

    How to connect dial-up in Mint 20.2

    Stan, I was just looking for info on how to determine what speed I'm at on dialup with Linux, and saw this post. My brain must not have been ready to integrate the info. Thanks for the reply, and I'll update you on this element. I've been connecting with wvdial through the terminal, and it is...

    How do you specifically install a GTK-PPP tar.gz in Mint 20.2 Cinnamon

    Hiya Wizard, good to hear from you. I live in an oak forest, so satellite isn't functional. I will hit hispeed when I visit folks, until they get out to the woods with some hardwire I hope. I'm glad I finally clicked on your 'spoiler' on the 'apt get' page. So much to learn. KGIII, thanks...

    How do you specifically install a GTK-PPP tar.gz in Mint 20.2 Cinnamon

    Hiya Everyone, Everything is working connecting dialup via terminal and wvdial. I haven't succeeded in getting a GUI installed. As you've said, it seems undoable, and I don't want to break anything since it is working. Thank you all for getting me up and running. It has been a 3yr. journey...

    Ok guys, thanks for the input. I'm exploring the files. There is an install file which has more specific info similar to what your shared kc1di. It may be an impossible goal, with Mint. I'll let you know how it goes.

    Hello Friends. New agenda. Still trying for a front end GUI for wvdial. I have GTK zip downloaded. I just don't know the terminal code to get it installed. Where should I unzip it? How do I get it installed from there? As alays you all are greatly appreciated.

    How to acquire 'apt-get' access in Linux Mint 20.2 Cinnamon

    Ladies and Gentlemen, We Have Perfection! At least as far as I know. I'll be working on speeding things up, and I'm sure there are tweaks to sample, yet I've got things organized, and I think 'apt-get' is accessible, just no front end for wvdial yet. Ill have to start a new thread when I...

    Open apps titles do not show in panel after minimizing window

    I'm in Nirvana!!! We have liftoff, the Linux Machine is in a perfect state with all systems functioning. At least as far as I'm currently aware. The answer to the missing minimized windows was solved by an applet. In editing the panel the applets 'Window List' and 'Windows Quick List'...

    Open apps titles do not show in panel after minimizing window

    Yes a title change is ok with me. Yes I was assuming [which we never should do] that windows OS would be assumed. I put XP on VBox as that is the only disk I have. The astrology program is installed in XP on VBox. Since it seems the issue with window minimization only began after that...

    How to connect dial-up in Mint 20.2

    Stan, correct a new instance is opened if I hit the icon in the left panel. The intended minimized window to center panel is only accessed through using Alt + Tab. I've checked it several times, on several workspaces, with several apps.

    How to acquire 'apt-get' access in Linux Mint 20.2 Cinnamon

    I'm re-reading all pages involving dialup and fixing these issues I have. Just saw the one Lord Bolton about installing the libraries. Man that really did something. Still don't have a front end installed yet I can take this home and work on it as they're going to kick me off soon. Just...

    How to connect dial-up in Mint 20.2

    Thanks Stan, I have Opera, Thunderbird and Libre in the left area of panel along with file manager. If I click on them when my window has disappeared, another new window is opened, and the old window is not available [except now with your 'Alt + Tab trick]. I have 4 workspace windows, trash...

    Open apps titles do not show in panel after minimizing window

    Hiya Linux Forum. I'm getting closer to heaven, yet not functioning smoothly yet. I did successfully install Virtual Box, which then allowed me to install my astrology program properly. This program, as well as successful dial up connection are required for me to transfer totally away from...

    How to connect dial-up in Mint 20.2

    Hello Stan. Thanks again for the useful info and tweaks. I'll try them and let you know. The modem speed was set for 115200, I think I'll follow YoLinux suggestions and add to the ppp options file, and add 'stupid mode', as I've used that before. We'll see what happens. My astrology...
