Assuming you just want to run it on a standalone desktop/laptop computer, you want the deb (local) version. Clic...

Re: Mint fails to install in Virtual Box

First click the New icon and set the virtual machine up. Then click Start and select the desired .iso to run/install. Without a link to the video, there's no way any of us could tell you if there might be some misinformation in it. Over the last several years, I have installed probably 50 or more di...

Re: Flatpak vs .Deb

Welcome to the Mint forums, Havoc! The flatpak files are larger because they contain many of the library files (libs) needed to run the program. The advantage of the flatpak is that by including the needed libs, a newer version can be run. Suppose a program you wanted to run was available on Mint as...

Re: How To Keep My Trackball Wakeup Flag Enabled?

People generally suggest waiting 24 to 48 hours for a response before bumping or getting impatient. The person that knows the answer to your question - and there almost certainly is one - could be at work, or sleeping, or whatever. I must say that, for a newcomer, you've done a fine job getting as f...

Re: RStudio wont open on Linux Mint 18.3 Sylvia

The first thing I noticed is that you are running Mint 18.3, which is based on Ubuntu xenial, but you have repos for Ubuntu Trusty (Mint 17) installed. Have the Trusty versions been confirmed to work with xenial-based Mint 18?

Re: Menu on the wrong side.

How you do that depends upon which version of Mint (17.x? 18.x? 19?) you are using, and which Desktop Environment (Cinnamon? MATE? XFCE?). On Mint 17.3 XFCE, right click on the Menu button, then click Move.

Can it boot from USB?
If it can boot from CD, then it can boot from USB using PLOP:

I would install several Linux distributions to USB sticks, use PLOP to boot them, and try them out and see what you think.
