Re: Cinnamon process verbruikt 25% cpu, Nemo 2 tot 3gb ram !

Eigenlijk zou ik liever SpaceFM als standaard browser willen hebben en nemo compleet verwijderen, is dat een optie? Of zit deze in cinnamon gebakken? Ik zou Nemo laten staan (die is inderdaad behoorlijk met Cinnamon ineengevlochten) en er een andere naast zetten. Die kun je dan, meen ik, ook als st...

Re: Linux Mint 19.2 “Tina” Cinnamon released!

have to ask why the devs didn't wait for unbuntu 18.04.3 to be released before building this? Because Linux Mint releases are based on Ubuntu long term support releases. And so, the whole Linux Mint 19 series is based on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. it's not a difficult question to answer. I agree. I found it...

Re: Problem about mint does not allow downloading applications.

I really don't want to be negative here but many of the Mint repos are not allowing packages to be downloaded. Well, it seems that 'many' here really means 'one', so in that way you are still being a bit negative. :wink: I, too, have had problems with Evowise; try a different mirror, and see how it...

On a typical installation, all available space on the SSD/HDD are used and you need to tell the installer how much to shrink Windows partition to allocate to Mint.
Fair enough... I think I've done that from inside Windows in the past.

Be aware, you're still going to have tell the installer how much space to allocate to Mint.
Are you sure? I seem to remember that if you tell it to 'install alongside', it will simply fill up the free space that it finds.

Re: How to open apps on several workspaces on startup

First things first... Can you tell us your Mint version and desktop environment? It's pretty much impossible to answer this question (and many others) without that very minimal information.

I did some searching online and found an app called Gnome Schedule. It’s a graphical front end for cron. Unfortunately it’s not in the LMDE repositories.
Soooo this thread is about LMDE? I'll move it to the suitable forum section then. LMDE =/= main edition.
