Cinnamon 4.0 on LMDE3?

So, with 19.1 release does the LMDE3 get the Cinnamon 4.0 too? I hope so.

Re: I found a better OS than Linux Mint 19.x

I have been running LMDE3 in a VM just to play and did put it on an old Lenovo that I run as a PiHole server - really like it - very snappy and boots fast. I may switch to it at some point. I did run into some install issues when I tried to install it on a PC - it just would not boot after the inst...

Re: I found a better OS than Linux Mint 19.x

I found a better OS than Linux Mint well played lol, I took the bait & clicked expecting some flames :oops: yeah LMDE3 is nice, & arguably faster, but I'm sticking to Mint 18.3 for the time being, because It earned my trust, after all we been through together, It deserves another year cheers Switch...

Re: I want AutoUpdate Support for LM18.3

I want AutoUpdate Support for LM18.3 the update manager. Auto-Upgrade via the Update Manager was introduced with LM 19, to be used in conjunction with Timeshift. As such, it doesn't natively exist in LM 18.3. You could create a cron job to leverage the mintupdate-tool command to accomplish this (I ...

Why don't u use EXT2 for boot? It's faster with ext2.
I can't be bothered to maintain a separate boot partition for a start...does it really make much difference?
yep, it's fast as duck.. :)

Cinnamon and Intel drivers GPU for linux are the main factor.

You've actually posted some interesting info for the first time so well done.

So you've identified spectre and meltdown mitigations impact your performance as do later ke...

Re: Linux Mint 18.3 is better than 19 ... Why? I hope main developer see this

Ahhh. So the point of this thread is that Mint should work OOTB on all hardware without any tweaking necessary. Got it. We can hope that 19.1 fixes every issue for every user on every conceivable piece of hardware running any version of any software I guess, but it might take a little longer to get...

True, LM 19 is garbage... hope 19.1 will be better but i think not...sadly You're going about getting assistance with your OS issues in the wrong way. Bad-mouthing Mint won't get you far.
