Install updates, I think that Bluetooth was fixed in a newer 4.15 kernel
That did the trick.

Upgrade the kernel from 4.15.0-20 to 4.15.0-55.

Thanks much! :wink:

Re: "Clean" install with separate root and home partitions - reality check

I just finished the install and that is just about as slick as can be. I'm playing with in now but that was impressive. Beats the heck out of MS Windows. Just I'll see if there are any issues over the next couple of day, but right now? Seriously cool.

Re: "Clean" install with separate root and home partitions - reality check

Both the pro and the con are the same thing: You are preserving your application settings. Mostly a big convenience with a theoretical disadvantage of the possibility of incompatible settings that the much newer version of the application cannot properly handle anymore. But should that happen (and ...

Kernel: 4.4.0-109-generic x86_64 (64 bit) Desktop: Cinnamon 2.8.8 Distro: Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa It's time to make the leap from Mint 17.3 to 19.1. Might as well go all the way.

Re: Firefox 58.0.1 update

I have to say, this really bothers me and I've been a linuxmint user for a LONG time. The reason that Mint packages their own version of Firefox is to get the ad revenue from searches. If they are going to do that then they also need to stay on top of security updates like this as this one is reall...

Re: How to update your kernel for Meltdown

Just as an FYI, today I got a Mint Update Manager update level 1, followed by a Level 5 kernel update. That update was to the patched 4.4.0-109-generic (or I assume it's patched from what I've read - still a Newbie in many ways).

The reason I don't wade into the man pages is because it's like looking for a screw driver and having someone point you to Ace Hardware.

For a long listing find /var/lib -type l -ls

In certain folders you'll need to use sudo.

Thank you for giving me something solid as a oppose to saying, "Look at the man pages." I appreciate it! :D That's exactly what I was looking for.
