Will LM 18 drop fglrx like Ubuntu 16.04???

Canonical has announced that they will drop support for fglrx in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS because fglrx is no longer maintained properly and therefore does not support X.org 1.18 (that's the version number, right?), and recommends using AMDGPU or radeonsi depending on your hardware until 16.04.1 (according ...

Re: Mint17 Cinnamon - How can I replace Pulse Audio with ALS

Hey Flemur, thanks for your kind help! Try $ sudo apt-get remove pulseaudio (not purge, no '*') Or, in synaptic, try unmarking the things you want to keep. It still wants to remove: cinnamon cinnamon-bluetooth cinnamon-control-center cinnamon-screensaver libcanberra-pulse nemo nemo-fileroller nemo-...

Re: safe way to disable pulseaudio in cinnamon 17.2?

Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Debian, Fedora, openSUSE, Red Hat, CentOS(?), etc. PulseAudio is the most widely adopted sound system on the Linux platform and almost every distribution and desktop environment use it. The only thing which shows higher quality is JACK, which is for music STUDIOS, NOT AT ALL FOR ...

Re: Loading Screen Says Ubuntu 17.1

Try installing Cowsay again. You should never remove software that is included with any distribution, not just Linux Mint. But if you want to, search Google if there are any side effects.

Re: Anyone Play With A Raspberry Pi?

Looks like Compulab ran out of stock, while Amazon still had some in stock, and then Amazon also ran out of stock. Compulab is manufacturing new supply.

Re: Linux is Not Windows

Funny how people the Linux and Windows are the same.
How I remember it is instead of remembering that that's that, I just remember the kernel is NT or Linux.
NT? That's Windows.

I installed Mint 13 xfce on my old Dell laptop (non-pae), with great results.
What about Mint 17?
