Re: New Dropbox System Requirements

I've also had the email from Dropbox but am unsure of my next steps. They seem to be insisting on ext4 format but, in the detail, they comment on the consequences of an external HDD not being connected at startup and the risk of deleted files from every instance of DropBox Does the move to ext4 eli...

Re: Boot partition too small?

You could eliminate the swap partition completely. If you have 16 gb of RAM you will probably never need even 1 gb of swap. I have been running Linux for years, right now openSUSE Leap 15, and I have never used a swap partition. I have 16 gb of RAM and swap will never be used.

Re: Mint 19 - Suspend not working

I have experienced this problem and started threads about it here at this forum as well as the Ubuntu forum. Unfortunately the "bug" is baked in and no kernel patch will fix the problem. I finally gave up and moved on to openSUSE.

has no screen globber I'm not familiar with the term "screen globber", can you explain what you mean with other words? There are dozens of email clients on Linux.

Re: One thing stops me...

I understand what you are saying and I agree that there are certain trade-offs with what ever OS a person uses, whether it is a Linux distro or Windows. If you are able to dual boot for awhile so that you can get the feel of Linux, I think that you will be happy. In the beginning you said that the t...

Re: Linux Mint 19 Sleep Issues

Thank you guys for that information. I am guessing that this is a bug with the new Linux Mint. I sure hope that the developers fix this sleep issue so that I can continue to use Linux Mint because I really like this distro.

Thanks again,

Linux Mint 19 Sleep Issues

Hello All, I would like to use Linux Mint as my main OS but I can not because of sleep issues. I am dual booting Linux Mint 19 with Windows 10 on an old Haswell based PC with no aftermarket GPU, just internal Intel graphics. The problem is that Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon does not always go to sleep. My ...
