Re: Linux Mint 20 success or issues

I have one problem that I've not been able to solve yet in mint 20 . Launching a wine program that I use every day takes up to 5 mins to launch. It will eventually show up but is extremely slow in doing so. (this is not a Mint problem exactly as the same thing happens in Ubuntu 20.04). Anyone else n...

Re: Hello there, will this be for me?

Any version of Mint should work on that machine.
my advice is to get copies of each one and give them a try and see which one fits your needs best.
You will need an internet connection to fully appreciate the ability to add software and drivers though.
Good luck in your search.

Re: Hello there, will this be for me?

Hello Graham, Welcome to Linux Mint Forums. If mint is the right choice of OS for the desktop you have will depend on it's hardware. How old is it? XFCE is a good choice for older hardware. I've never done business with these folks but may be an option for you since you can't download the .iso and b...

Re: Whats with google chrome 83?

Hi, It sounds like your auto fill and password savers may have been turned off. Go to Chrome, click on the three dots on the far right of the address bar line. select setting and then select auto fill. You should then see a screen that shows with a couple of slide switches that say autofill make sur...

It's quite simple to upgrade from one version to the next, just follow the instructions when mint 20 is released and you should not have a problem.

Re: using wine and a 32-bit prefix creates launcher that doesn't work

Do you have the 32bit libraries that the program needs installed? I'm using a 32bit windows program on wine here that works correctly. If you did not use the wine-installer meta package in synaptic or from the repositories then all the 32 bit libs may not have been installed. I tried Mint 20 /ubuntu...
