Re: Is there a way to speed up Mint?

Remember to remove non used applications from your startup to free up some resources. Do a research about each of them before removal to see if they are not system needed.

Re: Help to choose desktop for old laptop

+1 for Xfce, it continues very lightweight but it's way more user friendly these days than the older versions.

Re: Grad students needs new linux machine on a budget

The laptop off the desk seems to be the better choice, maybe with a under desk support.

Re: max fan speed from suspend

I think fan speeds are controlled by BIOS itself accordingly to parts temperatures, check if isn't a ageing or dusty fan that's causing the extra noise.

Re: Static IP over wifi?

Check your router documentation, maybe you need to configure static IP (DHCP off) on the router too beyond configuring the static IP on the server machine network configuration. Here configuring the machine IP works even when router DHCP is on, but who knows.

Re: firefox consuming too many resources - tweaks?

Try to keep the least possible addons/extensions enabled, you can gain performance doing that (hard to do, firefox extensions are awesome).

Re: Start-Up-Programs in MATE 17.3. Rosa

Really recommended that you do a research on what that startup entry is responsible before consider disabling it, they may be attached to something important as printer, sound or video card support.

Re: When should a Newbie Kill the Mint Command Line

Looks like it's perfectly safe to "kill" (terminate) a process that isn't responding correctly.

Looks like the manual install is the way to go for the latest version... odd enough to me too.

Looks like your Windows USB bootable media isn't properly functional, check it on another machine.

Re: How to remove uninstalled windows from mint boot loader

You may need to remove the boot entry from grub configuration. If you don't have experience to do this editing the text files configurations, consider using grub-customizer GUI configuration tool.

Re: Thanks

I'm a long term Ubuntu user experimenting with Xfce Mint and a "beautiful experience" is the perfect term for it, lovely packaging/configuration.
