Re: Replacement KDE distros... Feedback here!

There is another option, there is Manjaro. Manjaro if you never heard of it is a distro based on Arch linux, but offers a nice easy to use out of the box setup of your choice. Its kind of the linux mint of Arch distros, offers a easy installer and a rather nice package manager GUI. It has four main ...

Re: Replacement KDE distros... Feedback here!

Personally I say dont use PClinux as its severely limited by its package selection and installing third party packages is impossible without a lot of hard work for the end user and it takes forever for a package to be approved by its packagers. For me the most logical distro to go to for Mint KDE us...

Re: End of KDE

Cinnamon is Clems baby, KDE That's pretty much all you got right. There's absolutely nothing wrong with Mint KDE. Eh I had a few issues with it, it wasnt perfect. But i think that is due to Ubuntu more than mint, again ubuntu's kde maintainers have never been the best at it. Especially compared to ...

Re: End of KDE

Cinnamon is Clems baby, KDE never really was all that good on Mint to be honest. The thing is Cinnamon in my opinion has shaped up to be a better desktop than KDE, its rock solid (unlike plasma sometimes), has a lot of great extensions, and is very feature rich. Sure Cinnamon still has its fare shar...

Re: (Not Solved Anymore!!!!)No sound on HDMI with rx480

You realise that GPU makers only cater to windows, because really this is not the fault of linux.
GPU makers really dont care about linux plus unlike windows Linux is free.
If its anyone who needs to get thier shit together its you and AMD
AMD rainbows linux over not the other way around

Re: Upgrading ??

Old Toshibas didnt have that issue before UEFI, post windows 8 they became mainly windows only.

I would say go Asus then, or go thew system 76 route

Re: Upgrading ??

yes stay the hell away from toshiba, toshiba pretty much disables any option to turn off secure boot and wont boot any linux medium.
Its a shame as Toshibas hardware is usually fantastic.
Go Dell, HP, Asus and maybe even Lenovo despite they install spyware in windows (that wont effect linux)

Re: Manjaro KDE, opinions?

For me Manjaro is a great distro, in fact I was running it before using Mint 18.
My issues with manjaro were more from Arch as arch is rolling and Manjaro while mostly good does inherit some Arch bugs.

Re: Why linux boot is slower than windows boot?

This thread title is a joke, my Linux Mint 18 boots 12 times fastrer than windows does.
They must have fast boot enabled in windows, otherwise its a utter slowpoke

One casualty of the recent hack is the cinnamon spices website, it is a real mess right now. Are there any plans to change it back or make it secure so that if anything is placed in cinnamon it wont effect non mint distros? I do hope so, cinnamon is my favorite desktop right now, KDE plasma is still...

The road to Linux Mint 18

So next year new Ubuntu LTS Release and new Mint release. One thing keeping me from committing to Mint is that we still have no word on what will happen when Mint 18 comes out. Will I have to reinstall Mint like the not so time honored tradition set in Mints past? Will we finally have a direct way t...

Re: Why is LMDE 2 not compatible with PPAs ?

Well you can use ubuntu ppa's they are just not recommended.
If a ppa is needed best way for me to stay safe is use repos for Trusty/Precise and never use a interim release repos.
I use the getdeb repos and with a few hiccups its safe enough
