Re: Ubuntu to Mint

Hi everyone, I'm Julian from glorious Devon in England. Been a Linux Ubuntu user for more than 10 years so very familiar with the Linux OS. It's served me well but kept reading about Linux Mint becoming one of the most popular OS so decided to jump ship for a change. I'm glad I did. I've still got ...

Re: Heating Issue

I would clean the fan, heat sink & apply new thermal paste to cpu/gpu. Do it yourself or get someone to do it for you. If you can connect by ethernet & remove the battery, that will cut down the heat some too. Great advice about the battery, in fact. I don't use mine 99% of the time, and 1% I can m...

Re: Partitions & Sizes

Yes, I agree with AndyMH, you don't need separate partitions for all these folders. Put everything on SSD, except for swap file, and /var/log (put that in RAM).
You can always add them later. If you feel that you will run out of space in /home when using SSD, create /home on HDD now. That's it.

Hello, For years my parents had PC with Ubuntu installed.

Re: mint 17.3 takes about 45 seconds from its login screen to the fully loaded OS

Your dmesg paste in provided link seems to be not compete, it's only covering less than first 2 seconds since boot. Can you try from command line: dmesg >dmesg.txt File dmesg.txt will be created in your home directory. Make sure your Mint is fully loaded when you type that command. Attach that as an...

Re: "LINUX MINT DISK IS LIKELY TO FAIL SOON (30° C/86° F)"

Your hard drive most probably have a few bad sectors (regions on surface that cannot be read or written, so they've been marked "bad"). Hard drives with bad sectors are not reliable, generally shouldn't be used as main drives, only for testing/backup/recovery/repair or other professional use. Please...

What session is chosen at login screen, have you tried all options (like MATE, Default Session, and whatever else could be there)? Please paste results of command: dmesg I am sure at this point, without even ...

Re: Question about viruses, malware, etc.

In principle: Yes. But with your conditions "only" your home would be affected, not the system. In practical experience: Very seldom, if at all. The most crucial software are programs, which legitimately connect to the Internet, especially the browser. A bad guy might try to get control about your ...
