Re: Kodi 18.3 crashes at startup in Linux Mint 19.2 "Tina" Cinnamon Edition

But here's a possible fix. Working for me as we speak with Kodi 18.3 and LM19.2. Linux mint supports Flatpacks very nicely. Well... bad news once more!!! This Flatpack solution....is not working for me!!! I am convinced that is a GPU problem because when i change to nvidia driver everything works b...

If i go to driver manager and change the xserver-xorg-video-nouveau with the (recommended) then kodi works but i don't have the right screen resolution. I have an old monitor too...Philips Brilliance 190p with 1280x1024 resolution! There is not an option for this resolution (1280x1024) in the nvidi...

Re: Linux Mint 19.2 Tina: my how-to's have all been modified

Sorry, you feel that way. I thought (perhaps I was wrong) it accounted for system stability, See, that idea that not fixing bugs is somehow making your system more stable is exactly why levels had to go. :) Mind you, this is through no fault of your own: the way the old system was made up it basica...

nicely done upgrade path to 19.2 from 19.1

Well that ways easy via update manager. Dev's put some time into that me thinks not just for doing it GUI but the whole CL process which that hooks to. I did make sure to first fix broken dependencies, got rid of dead PPA's and be as up-to date as possible before starting but how nice. Thank you. I ...

Re: Available kernel update doesn't install with aptitude

I use sudo apt-get upgrade normally was using the GUI updates for LTS Kernel 4.15.x and LTS 4.19.x. mostly worked so I'm surprised at your experience using CLI. But now on 5.1.x on non work computers using ukuu script which has been great but I have seen absolutely zero advantage of latest stable vs...

Re: New Cinnamon install not dual booting

You don't install Grub n such post LM install. Not sure where you got that. You shrink your windows partition first within windows and leave space for LM. How much to give is up to you but I like 100Gb or more. Then you boot your LM live USB and choose install. You choose 'other' and install along s...

Re: How do I check why an app makes my OS freeze?

You don't ever need to install anything to use VPN on LM. What .Deb? I'd get rid of it in a hurry. Unless you are handy with linux, don't install anything thats not available via the software manager. BTW, Astrill has a horrible reputation. Not secure at all. The very idea that they want you to inst...

Lots of articles now on a firefox 67.0 security vulnerability and Mozilla also saying to patch immediately due to risk to 67.0.3 but is not available via LM update manager yet. One alternative is to add the mozilla security PPA and install from there. What do y'all think? I assume by tonight it will...

Which version of linux mint are you running? More specifically, which desktop? Cinnamon, Xfce, MATE? You sholudn't have to download anything. Now days bluetooth support comes with your particular LM desktop. Same for Ubuntu. In fact, if you try to use the wrong bluetooth support for your desktop (bl...

in the next version of win-10, there will supposedly be more control over those updates. :twisted: it also depends on whether you are running Home or Pro - on those machines. - you can get some type of control by using either: - - Group Policy - the Registry https://www.windowscentral.com/how-stop-...
