Re: First Linux laptop

Welcome aboard, Minux1! I suspect there are millions of old computers gathering dust in a closet that could have been given a new lease on life by installing Linux. Often when I install Mint on an old Windwoes computer for somebody, they say, "Wow, this is faster than it ever was, even when it was n...

Re: Just Starting Research On Linux Mint

Welcome aboard, secinv! Are you wanting to install Linux on your Surface? It's been a while (several years) since I researched it, but that used to be a major chore. (Non-standard hardware in the Surface.) But people were working on making it easier, and I assume by now it should be relatively easy....

Re: kernels 4.15, 4.18, 5.0?

If all is working well for you, then there is probably no advantage to installing a newer kernel. If you decide to install another kernel, make sure you keep at least one known working kernel, just in case.

My first suggestion: don't wait so long before asking for help. You'll never get it done when you're frustrated.

Second suggestion: provide the information that those who are trying to help you have asked for.

Re: Any musicians out there using Mint/Linux?

I have used Audacity in Linux a fair bit and it works well. Have also used JACK and Rosegarden a bit and they also work well. If you want to print music out, MuseScore is great.

Re: MP-BIOS bug: 8254 timer not connected and other errors

My mother's computer used to show the "MP-BIOS bug: 8254 timer not connected" error, but everything seemed to work just fine. The rest of those error messages somebody smarter than me will have to help you with.

Re: GitHub

It is best when you compile software from the source code, to use checkinstall to install it, rather than make install . If you use checkinstal l, it creates a .deb package that you can remove from Software Manager, Synaptic, or command line. If you don't use checkinstall , it may be nearly impossib...

Re: Safe to update LM 13 KDE?

Safe to update Mint 13? It isn't even safe to run Mint 13. I don't know about the repositories for Mint 13, but ordinarily, when a release is beyond its support period, the repos are taken down. If you don't want to run Mint 18, try Mint 19.
