The Table of Content is generated. Translate the titles and right click the table of content and select "refresh", or "regenerate" or "re...whateverit'scalled" :)

Yeah that's right - I forgot, I haven't used that function in a year or two!
Thanx for reminding me!

Just a suggestion for the section: check the MD5.

You give only the command
Code: Select all
md5sum LinuxMint-4.0.iso

but with that we must check with our little eyes :lol: the "series of weird characters", what is not really comfortable :roll:

There is a easier way!

On the page of downloads of the mirror you have a 'md5sum.txt' file with all MD5 signatures for all Mint editions. Download it in the same place where you downloaded your .iso file(s) and in the terminal just type:
Code: Select all
md5sum -c md5sum.txt

and after a few moments you will see one (or several if you downloaded several files) answers such as for example this one:
Code: Select all
LinuxMint-4.0-Fluxbox-BETA-028.iso: OK
LinuxMint-4.0-KDE-BETA-044.iso: OK
LinuxMint-4.0.iso: OK
LinuxMint-4.0-XFCE-BETA-008.iso: OK

(of course if you downloaded just one file then you will see just one answer)

I guess that this command is easier and more pleasant, no? :D

Suggestion: before launching the checking you can edit the file and remove the signature for the .iso files that you have not downloaded. That will avoid seeing error messages for the other files which you have not downloaded :wink:
