Restore Lost Tutorials

It would be good to restore all of the tutorials which disappeared.
Even if the users deleted their account (or were deleted) the tutorials were once published under copyright of the Linux Mint community. So it should be no problem to republish them.

In case of missing contents I can contribute copies of all reviewed tutorials ("as article") until December 27th 2015. Unfortunately in the last five months most every tutorial remained without review.

Furthermore I stored a couple of tutorials from "yahoo cache" which were not reviewed yet.

There are even lots of ideas missing, Example:
File System guide

EDIT: feedback appreciated :-)

For example:
Article: VLC Player 2.2.1 Now possible on Linux Mint

[[linuxmint.com]] VLC Player 2.2.1 Now possible on Linux Mint

Upgrade from 2.1.6 in Linux Mint to 2.2.1 now possible

VLC Player that is on Linux Mint is of version 2.1.6. This version cannot play H-265 video formats (matroska - .mkv). To be able to play video files of such nature, upgrade your VLC Player to 2.2.1. Here is how to do so:

First check the version of the VLC Player you have by typing vlc --version in the terminal.
1. Add the following PPA by opening terminal and typing the following command:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mc3man/trusty-media


2. Next update it by typing:

sudo apt-get update

3. Then install the codec for the VLC player which will upgrade your current of 2.1.6 to 2.2.1 by typing:

sudo apt-get install vlc-plugin-libde265

Your VLC Player is now upgraded to version 2.2.1

Type vlc --version to see the version of VLC you now have.

Note: This is not the official upgrade from Mint. There is a warning you need to read before accepting to install the PPA. Perform this install only after reading and considering the warning.

Enjoy!

For VLC 2.1.6 it is enough to install the plugin, just type:

sudo apt-get install vlc-plugin-libde265

That's it! Enjoy!

There's a downside of that ppa (compatibility issue with other packages) for Mint (not Ubuntu) as long as I remember.

Please note that installing software from an unverified PPA is a risky suggestion. This is pretty much the only way to get malware into a Linux system.

Are you a tutorial publisher in this community and a tutorial of you is missing?
Please get in contact, maybe I have a copy stored.
So you can republish it ;-)
