Re: Dolphin Video Thumbnail Problem

Yes agreed. Can't get video thumbs either. Went back to cinnamon, at least you can see what you're doing there. If only the other option was ok. whatever the file manager is called in cinnamon "files" makes thumbs but wastes so much space it's crazy! Even if you increase the preview icon size with t...

Re: Linux Mint 18 codenamed “Sarah”

I'm downloading as I write. Does anyone know.
Will an install of the beta stay on the beta channel? Or move to stable with updates?

Re: USB Image Writer killed my USB stick...
