Re: why use Thunderbird at all?

I take my laptop with me and may not always have internet when I'm out and about. I want my email on my own machine, not in the cloud (someone else's machine). That way, I can always see and search it.

Re: Linux Mint 19.1 new install. Add mintupdate 5.4.7 and the system freezes on reboot

Linux newbies often want the newest version of everything, which you aren't going to get with long term support releases. Generally true, but fully off-topic in this thread. Kindly read the topic before saddling your favourite hobby horse, thanks! :roll: Everyone else: I see where you're coming fro...

Re: Problem downloading mint 19.1

Sorry, I have never even heard of a boot speed setting. Where did you find that? To make sure we're on the same page: 'Fast boot' is a setting that allows Windows to shut down partially, so it seems to boot faster because it doesn't need to boot all the way up. On second thought (and an internet sea...

Re: Problem downloading mint 19.1

Does your laptop have a Fast Boot setting in Windows? If so, switch it off. It's preventing Windows from shutting all the way down.

Re: Problem downloading mint 19.1

What exactly happens? In what way will it not install?
You're saying it runs. Does that mean you are getting to a Linux Mint desktop with the 'Install' icon?

in about config you can turn these off but by default mozilla use google malware protection, which connects to google but also connects with your cookies Thanks for the clarification, I would never have guessed this from 'calling chrome'.

don't be fooled here thinking firefox doesn't phone home. all the browsers phone home even waterfox and irridium or brave.
If we're assuming for a moment that this is true, wouldn't it make a difference to you which 'home' they are calling to? It would to me.

Hello, Open Software Sources; on the 'Maintenance' tab, you'll find a button marked 'Remove duplicate entries'. Oh wait, that's on 19.1 and you're not there yet. In that case, you'll need to inspect the different lists (PPAs and Additional Repositories) in Software Sources, and remove any and all du...
