Re: Linux mint 18 shutdown or power off problem.

The problem with the Acer is a well known bug(google dw_dmac).
The packard hell is NOT 100% IBM compatible(well-known in the old school).

Re: [SOLVED] CPU Fan Speed, CPU is overheating

I have that cooler on my i5-2500k, but with a fan on the other side as well in a push-pull configuration.
It helps for overclocking, especially under a heavy load like prime95.

Re: BUGS

@raleighman
Please try LM 17.3 before giving up on linux mint.
I do agree there are problems with LM 18 and the implementation of systemd.
However this is not indicative of linux mint.
LM 17.3 will be supported 'til 2019.
Surely we will have a 18.1 in the very near future

Re: Do we REALLY need MINT?

Or we could use archLinux and Cinnamon as the DE.
Or better yet, start with the linux kernel and build your own distro. :P

Re: Change directory name

The 1st command assumed you had gedit installed.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install gedit
but basically, open the file with ANY text editor with elevated privileges.
As far as the printer goes, cant help you, sorry.

Re: Confused about linux kernel to use in linux mint 18

More or less, you are wrong about the experimental kernel. The kernel in the repository is/was stable when the Mint team made it a "distro" kernel. If in doubt, head over to kernel.org. Latest stable release is currently 4.6.3, with 4.7 in the testing channel. I would call 4.7 an "experimental" kern...
