Re: Can anybody confirm stable work of Mint Mate on Dell XPS 9360?

pretty much the hardware issues will be the same as Ubuntu's if it's going to work it should work on Ubuntu 18.04 which Mint 19 will be base upon. so I would give ubuntu 18.04 a try see if the touch pad works? You should be able to tell from the Live .iso. Other than that I would also check with Del...

The issue was that I could not access my backup drives, which are standard USB WD Passport drives. When I attempted to open a drive with the default file browser, I got an error saying that the...

Re: Help me figure out why I can't connect to 5GHz wifi

you may have to tell your router which channel you want to use. The card will usually pick the strongest signal channel and use that one.

Re: Can anybody confirm stable work of Mint Mate on Dell XPS 9360?

4.16 is not official for Mint yet and there will be some things that are not included patches in the vinilla package.
4.10 had some problems with my dell. I would go back to 4.4.x

Re: Can anybody confirm stable work of Mint Mate on Dell XPS 9360?

Which version of mint are you using?
I would try the 4.15-20 kernel.
or the 4.4.x kernel as that one is long term support.

Re: How to create a Windows 7 boot USB?

try etcher works well for me. https://etcher.io never had it fail to make a usable bootable usb stick.
Though I've never tried it with a win 7 .iso
Where are you getting the win 7.iso files that may also be the problem unless your getting them from M.S. and paying the price.

Re: Can anybody confirm stable work of Mint Mate on Dell XPS 9360?

Hello Boris and Welcome to Linux Mint, I can not speak to the advisability of using linux on the Dell xps 9360 other than to point out that Dell does provide Drivers for Ubuntu 16.04 which is what mint 18.3 is based upon You may want to try Dell's own drivers found here: http://www.dell.com/support/...

Re: Flashgot

Flashgot is a Firefox add on and is not a mint program so it is possible that it's not compatible with the Firefox version you are running.
I find that Uget works quite well with FF you may want to try that.
good luck.
