Re: P.A.M.E.L.A game have you tried it?

Ah right. I just search for "P.A.M.E.L.A FAQ" and ended up on their own site but apparently Steam is more authoritative :lol: Anyway, " probably " isn't very convincing... Just for the record I did ask the company on the steam discussion page of PAMELA and they stated that they would definitely do ...

StarkMenu issues with Cinnamon 4.0

Not sure how to get in touch with the developer but if anybody is available on github could the developer be alerted to a problem with the StarkMenu app? When using the up-to-date version of StarkMenu on Cinnamon 4.0 on Arch Linux under the preferences options menu under the section "Quicklauncher" ...

Fixes for System Shock 2

Re: P.A.M.E.L.A game have you tried it?

I couldn't find that promise in the FAQ . It just says: What platforms are we releasing on? We are only officially releasing on PC as of now, but we are also considering consoles, and experimenting with VR. PC equates to Windows in that. In any case, this being an early access game... But it looks ...

Touchscreen functionality on Mint does it exist?

Also how good is the touchscreen feature availability on Mint itself with Cinnamon as default? I'm interesting in eventually getting a Hanns-G 27" touchscreen monit...

P.A.M.E.L.A game have you tried it?

Bought this game awhile ago in November tried it on Windows 10 and it seems to be an interesting game some of the characters like for example the infected looks like those from System Shock 2 but what impresses me is the quality of the tech on the game and I like the fact you have in-game reading.

Re: Do Windows users delete system files and folders?

Some users which I sometimes stumble upon tend to say isn't Linux Windows anyway or what's Linux. Most of the casual people seem to only be aware of Microsoft Windows or Apple's macOS whenever I talk about Linux to them its like over their heads and they immediately become confused.

Re: NSA backdoors in Win 10.?

Chances of the US government/NSA having backdoors into M$'s Win 10 seem pretty high. No.? Yes. If I remember correctly, William Binney is convinced they are there and he knows about these things. Interestingly, when I asked him about similar back doors in Linux, he would not answer. Maybe he wouldn...

Why is it that the hostname on the Mint Debian Edition requires to be fully lowercase letters with no caps lock? On the standard version Ubuntu-based releases it works with caps lock and can have the first letter of the computer name in capitals but not on the Debian Edition. Is there a reason for t...

Linux Kernel releases?

So since 3.x era of the versioning scheme when do you think the Kernel reaches 8.0 or beyond? Will they ever keep the 3.x versioning for future releases? I reckon in the 2020s the Linux Kernel 8.0 will be out but what do you think? I sometimes like to think ahead!

Re: Mint's own repositories?

Without speaking for the Mint team that I'm no part of, I'll confidently say that this will never happen. There's no good reason for it. Linux Mint isn't a full distribution, it's a re-spin of Ubuntu, most of its package base is Ubuntu's. I have a feeling you may also have misunderstood what Zorin ...

Re: Will we get an alexa or cortana?

I have suggested to Amazon if they could do Alexa for Ubuntu and they've stated on twitter the suggestion had been forwarded to the correct team for consideration but who knows they might or might not create it for Linux systems and I hope they make it possible for systems just like Mint itself.

That's the purpose, yes: https://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=3615

A clean install is always the best option though.
But will mintupgrade be alright now rather than a clean install? Will it work fine?

MintUpgrade?

Hi,

Since we now have the MintUpgrade which apparently allowed users to upgrade from Mint 18 to 19 does that mean we don't actually have to re-install the operating system now? Will this software mintupgrade work for v19 users when Mint 20 gets released? Could someone clarify this for me?

The "About me" app is on nearly all of the desktop environments (e.g GNOME, MATE, Cinnamon, etc) it is just standard practice to place that app on the desktop environment. And please read this http://linux.oneandoneis2.org/LNW.htm (Linux is NOT Windows guide).
