then do a search against any issues that you do find & their resolution, if any.

Re: Ubuntu publish 18.04 user statistics

the assumption would be, that the Linux.Mint.Project would have similar statistics as well.

but there is some oddities like - No Users in North America ?
- according to that World Map, anyway.

it does seem that most folks are re-cycling their machine, based on those lower hardware spec's.

Re: Burning an audio CD

as a rule, I've always used 'Brasero' as it comes with the system,
but I've also used both K3b & XFburn as well & they all seem to work okay.

as far as any extra needed files, the file called 'libmp3lame0' should be already installed,
and is used for those MP3 conversions.

can you confirm, again, what cards are on that Motherboard,
