I have a flakey ISP which drops packets. I hate to try to donwload 1.2 GB, only to have it fail after 900MB. I have to pay for bandwidth.
Which is why I prefer a torrent, if poss.

Recommended packages and 32-bit libraries
Recommended packages are no longer automatically installed in Linux Mint. To install a package with its recommended packages, use the command "apt install packagename --install-recommends".
If you're experiencing issues with Skype or other 32-bit programs under Linux Mint 64-bit, install the package "ia32-libs".

I tried the various fixes listed in other forums, the most common being adding a line about adding "PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC=30" to some config file, but it didn't help. Some of the other fixes screwed up media player audio completely, and I didn't know how to put it right. So after wasting 3 hours on this, I fixed it the fast and easy way: I re-installed Mint 15.
(These types of contretemps are what kept me from Linux for at least a decade. I've gotta get my work done. I don't have time to chase bug fixes.)*
Maybe I'll reload 16 at the end of its life cycle, after other knowledgeable programmers fix it all the little bugs.
*Still, I'm going to force myself to stick with Mint, rather than feed more coins into Bill Gates's pocket.
