Hi there kevingrant, I run Linux Mint 19, I downloaded the tar.xz from their website and installed it, it runs perfectly. There was no tweaking involved.

Hi there Malligt.
Here is an excellent guide to the Mint 19 Update Manager: https://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/20
I believe it was created by one of the crew here but I am sorry I don't know which member did it . My apologies for not mentioning his name.

Re: Extending root partition

Thank you gm10, and to all of your replies! I no longer have to resize things at the moment as I have taken the advice of examining root and removing unneeded files. I have around 3GB space in there now and I am continuing to look for more. When I do decide to extend root I know how to go about it n...

Re: Extending root partitian

Thank you OunceofCommonSense and Pierre.
Pierre, what do you mean by 'a fair bit of time', is that 15 minutes, 1 hour...is there some kind of indication that the process is completed?

[SOLVED] Extending root partition

Hi there, I have looked around the Internet for answers to this query but I am still not entirely confident about what I think I should do here. As you can see the space on root is getting low and I wish to increase it. Is it simply a matter of booting to the live disk, opening Gparted, and dragging...

Re: mintupgrade check: "pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks" – How to diagnose & fix?

Thank you Clem, this happened to me just now whilst running mintugrade check:

!! ERROR: MESA 18.0.5 currently breaks the upgrade between Ubuntu 16.04 and 18.04 and Linux Mint 18.3 and Linux Mint 19. Restore a snapshot taken before MESA was upgraded to 18.0.5, or wait for Ubuntu to fix this problem.

Re: Good youtube videos? or bloggers?

BigDaddyLinux is quite good too, he hosts live shows as well where he has a group of guests from all over the place, it is quite entertaining.
I also like Tom on Switched to Linux.

Re: Kids can't use computers

I am 59, my daughters, who are in their 20's, come to me with "dad, Netflix won't load", "my laptop is really slow!", "HEEEELP!!!"
I compare it to cars. A lot of people drive cars but have no idea what may be wrong when it suddenly won't start.

Cats and harmonicas

When I start to play my harmonica, my cat goes crazy, immediately comes over to me and jumps up on my lap, then proceeds to walk around in circles on my lap, he is very excited by the sound.
Has anyone else had this experience?

Re: Musicians on here?

I played drums back in the 80s, we recorded a 45...we sold about 100, mainly friends etc. It was a fun time. It was the kind of New Wave sound that was happening then. We also played a couple of gigs at local venues and once at a music festival, on a small stage for the lesser acts haha. I had a cuc...

Re: How I feel about windows

I am so over Windows. I started with Linux on and off with Windows. Eventually I gave Windows away completely and I have never looked back. I get a great sense of freedom and individuality in using Linux.
It's great to be out of the corporate grasp.
