Re: Anniversary

I wish I had started with LM 10 years ago! Kudos and congrats on such success with such a great project. Think I started with LM15.

Re: gm10's Linux Mint Tools PPA

I think it is a little confusing as it shows up and is 'checked' to install by default in the regular update manager window not just the kernel manager. It would be nice to have more control as to what shows up there. Not entirely sure what you mean here. If you install a kernel, then Update Manage...

Re: gm10's Linux Mint Tools PPA

Hello, I have update manager set to show LTS kernels in preferences>advanced. However, it also shows 'low latency' kernels. I installed by mistake. Not a problem because I can uninstall of course but why would it show up at all? I don't have show "other kernels" box checked. Recently installed: 01/2...

Re: amd GPU auto overclocking, high fan, how to underclock?

Hello, My old AMD GPU card oddly heats up to max temps (as per psensor and radiontop apps) and fan gets super noisy when streaming some videos. THAT shouldn't happen as the GPU should hardly be doing anything. Using AMDGPU kernel driver which wants to auto overclock. Seems kernel independent on 4.1...

Re: Kernel version 5.3 - report

Not too useful without more information. Might as well show your hardware profile. What is relevant here is kernel vs hardware. This kernel does work fine for the vast majority of modern hardware.

Re: Driver Manager out of date

Is it normal for the Driver Manager "Non-Free" drivers to be VERY out of date? Yes. And that is directly related to using an LTS distro that was originally released several years ago. Using an LTS distro, only critical fixes get backported, not new-shiny-thing enhancements and minor bug fixes. You ...

Hello gm10. I saw the self update displaying a fix for the auto launch of the kernel manager and hit the update button.

Re: What's with this "Nemo" anyway?

heh. Not a lot of useful info for any one to help you. Nemo is the Cinnamon default file browser tool yes. It doesn't do anything else. You can use anything else that you like. Its not like MS windows where everything is prescribed. Just chill and play with the cinnamon interface a bit.

People aren't helping you because you aren't giving any helpful information. Plus this isn't a help forum really. But I have installed LM19.1 on a dual boot with Manjaro with EXT4. Now it is LM19.3 via upgrade. Originally it was the other way around with making a Manjaro 3rd OS with LMmint and MX Li...
