Re: Recommendations for a MP3 player pleeeease!

Try Audacious. That's my player of choice and seems to do MOST of what you want. It doesn't do 3 unless you clicked 'STOP' during the song in question. The player moves to the next song once the current one finishes. This is standard behaviour for just about any video/audio player, on a computer or ...

Re: Qt vs GTK -- why not one for all? Or both?

Cinnamon itself was written using the GTK framework but you can (and probably do) run both Qt and GTK applications on it.

Why does more than one framework exist? Different developers, different ideas, different features. Competition is good.

Re: Need to re-install my Mint, a question or two, OK?

There's not a massive amount to know about NTFS (Note: not NTSF) and FAT32. GParted has options for both, what more do you need to know? They're just another format on a partition. This will help you make your drives visible in Mint: https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=255060

Re: Screen tearing

See Mint 18.2 release notes on using the modesetting driver by uninstalling the existing driver. If your hardware supports this it should improve tearing and on my system it is a 100% fix when using the CPU onboard graphics (Intel). Once it is fully released, see Mint 18.3 release notes, which when ...

Re: ALSA/PulseAudio mess/mystery

So Pulseaudio sounds like a bit of a mess, which begs the question- why has it quickly become the de-facto standard in Linux?

Re: How to define metered connections?

Updates don't happen unless you initiate them and update checks use next to no resources. There's nothing within Mint to do what you want but it really makes little odds. Use of a well tuned add-blocker when surfing will make a massive difference.

Re: An open source social network

Haven't really used it myself yet, but a lot of Youtubers are gradually migrating to it as Youtube has demonetised their videos for what appear to be political reasons.
Looks good.

Re: First time user-Linux Mint has been installed

Not sure where you get the notion that some has to be installed using apt-get? I use apt-get now and then, but for the most part, I use Synaptic, and a lot of others use Software Manager. Both of those have access to all the same stuff that apt-get does. See this link... https://konqueror.org/downl...

Re: High RAM (1 GB) usage by Cinnamon

First I would rule out the memory issue. See if you're actually hitting swap when the system slows.
