Re: Linux Mint Appreciation Thread. Because it is the best OS on the planet!

I find Linux Mint to be by far the best piece of software that I have ever used. I have tried many other OS's before(Including Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10, Ubuntu, Debian, Arch, Fedora, Haiku OS, ReactOS, and macOS), however, I have not enjoyed using any one of those as much as I have enjoyed L...

Replace built-in programs with Flatpak versions?

I don't know if this is already in the works or not, so here is a suggestion... Lets replace all of programs from a normal install with their Flatpak versions. Essentially, get rid of Brasero, LibreOffice, Firefox, GIMP, VLC, Thunderbird, Transmisssion, HexChat, etc, and install the ones from Flathu...

Re: What happens after 2021 with 18.x?

After 2021, presumably Ubuntu 16.04 and as such also Mint 18.x will no longer be supported. That means no more security updates... Of course, Mint 17.x/Ubuntu 14.04 ends support in April 2019, only one year away. Your computer will still work when LM17.x stops being supported, but it will be vulnera...

Re: Handing out LM DVDs

How about some of us get those 15Packs of DVD-R's, and stand outside of stores selling Linux Mint 17.1 Cinnamon DVD's for $3.00 each. Then we could give people copies of Linux Mint, they like it, then they tell their friends and family and they install it, and they tell their friends and family, an...

A plea for sticking with obsolete software versions

Probably, not the best idea tho, but I have locked my system to Firefox 28, and I will not be upgrading to Firefox 29 or newer. Same with my Linux Mint version, I will not be using any version newer than 17.3. Same with my Android phone, I have a G2, with Android 4.4.2, I will not upgrade to any ver...

Re: What web apps would you like to see available?

... I haven't a clue why I would need to have a .deb file for a "web app"; can't I just use my browser to use the app? The one advantage I can imagine would be for offline/standalone use. However, for this to be worthwhile, the app in question must make sense as a locally-stored application. If the...

Re: Tell people about free Linux upgrades :)

I spend a fair amount of time promoting Linux and Open Source software to others. I have converted a few friends, but it seems like most people are just stubbornly sticking with Microsoft and other proprietary software. I am currently working on a project to introduce people at my church to Open So...

What web apps would you like to see available?

There are TONS of "Web Apps" written in HTML5, and JS, and loads more that you use the web browser to access. I am starting a project to get some of these packaged as DEB files, this means that you can get to them using your start menu. I would like to know what ones you want to see. NOTE: :!: :!: :...

Tell people about free Linux upgrades :)

Windows 10 will be a free "upgrade" for any Windows 7/8/8.1 users. I think we can get more people to use Linux Mint by telling them, that LM is not just free for Windows 7/8/8.1 users, it's free for everyone no matter what OS you use now. Then explain the features, and advantages you get from using ...

Re: Partition - how to access files from both OS?

Linux can access files on your Windows partition by default.
Windows, you need a driver to access the files on your Linux partition. Ext2Fsd is a decent driver, it is available here: http://www.ext2fsd.com/
Ext2Fsd is compatible with Ext2/3/4 and runs on Windows 2000, XP, 7, and 8.

Re: Icon design inconsistency

I applaud the huge effort put in by the Mint design team to give us so many theme options but I was disappointing to see that it was badly designed. If you go at "Home" and look at the folders, the Documents, Downloads, Public and Templates have white symbols on the green icons. Music has a black s...

Any idea of what may the reason be? Thanks! You upgraded to 6GB RAM correct? If so you need a 64Bit...

Codename for 17.3

I would like the codename for LM 17.3 to be Taylor.

Although Taylor is an English name, there's a Biblical meaning: Clothed with Salvation. Taylor is a name that means eternal beauty. The people with this name are beautiful inside and out(like Taylor Swift).
