Yeah - - only some Windows Programs will work on ./wine
and YMMV as well, as it is very limited in nature.

Re: My whine about Wine and Mint 19

if you do search in Software Manager for ./wine
then you will actually get three results:
- Wine
- PlayonLinux
- Wine tricks
you could install all three of them, as they are all quite useful,
in getting some Windows Programs to work .. ..

Re: "Open with": need to remove custom command from Other App list. Mint 18

Hi CapnJimbo,

you've posted your issue a couple of time, and the Guys have responded to both.
& thus I've merged both of your queries into the one Topic.
:)

NB: you can, usually get a better response, if you don't make multiple requests,
for help, as the replies can be kept together.

Re: WHen there is a new version of Mint does it auto download?

unlike the Windows System - - the LinuxMint System does not Auto-Download .. .
- you usually would have to Manually Upgrade.

Re: SD memory card from Canon camera not detected

even after updating your Mint to Rosa - - that may still be too old an LinuxMint version,
- you may need to upgrade to Serena OR Tara - instead.

Re: Dual boot

when creating an Windows Boot Media - you should use the 'Media Creation Tool':

this won't work under any Linux System, though & you will get re-routed to:

Re: ThinkPad 700C chipsets: the origin of the names "Mint" and "Cinnamon"?

since I've bought a whole bunch of Thinkpad's some years back,
& they do run really well with Linux Systems.

the later later versions, are not as good, from what I've read.
:(

it's sure is interesting on how those names were used, back in the early days,
but that would be by pure chance.

Re: Why the difference?

yes - for some reason the LM19 version of Firefox, doesn't have the usual suspects,
- it's not know why.

you would have to export to Firefox Bookmarks to a JSON file & then import them back into LM19 firefox.
& since I've a much longer list of favourites, then this is what I've done.

Re: Can I get Linux mint core?

the most lightweight version of LinuxMint, would be the XFCE version, but even that has a lot of pre-installed software. the LinuxMint Project doesn't release a core version, as such, and thus you would have to create an custom version of your own. you could use the Debian Project Core as your start...

for such an older machine, that Cinnamon Desktop Environment is too heavy, & so you may wish to try out using the LinuxMint Mate DE version instead. you may not actually have to re-install either,, if you can get a stable time with the machine, then you can install the Mate DE, from Package Manager ...
