Re: Correct repository / update IP addresses.

Correct repository / update IP addresses.

Sorry if this is in the wrong place... Could someone post the correct IP addresses for the repositories and updates please, mint 18.3 mate, so I can double check I'm connecting to the right place. Just trying to eliminate various possibilities for a glitch that no one else seems to experience. Thanks

I have files remain highlighted on my desktop after I have run/opened them, I don't think you have anything to worry about there. The browser issue could have been a hijack, have a look at this thread for some ideas about linux security and hardening your browser. :) http://forums.linuxmint.com/view...

if a tree falls in the forest does it make a sound? sure it does?
If a tree falls there would be no sound, vibrations would be created in the atmosphere that require an ear to convert the vibrations into electric signals for your brain to interpret as sound. :)

Re: Your fallback option in case Mint ever disappeared

My fallback option would just be the latest Mint release before the project ended. I would just stay on an older version of Mint. :)

Re: Subscription service?

It's a no from me.

Re: Mint 17 End of life

Thanks for the replies, I'm going to try 18 and 19 on a seperate drive first, my main concern is I have AMD graphics which could be problematic (emphasis on 'could' and not 'will be'), if they are ok I'm then going to format the drive with 17 on to use as a seperate data partition

Mint 17 End of life

Is there a date for when updates will cease? 17 has been super stable on my box so I'm torn between keeping it and risking the security of my machine or nuking it and having the latest updates.
