Re: Are most Linux Distros easily broken? Your advice please.

Welcome aboard Snowkid.
It looks like Linux will teach you how to actually learn computers instead of just
charging you for bogus info.

Re: screen flickering

Have you tried tweeking the resolution?
I had a similar problem with an OLD MSI u100 with a single core atom. Of course this was a 32 bit system.
I changed to XFCE 19.1 32. Problem gone. I am a fan of Cinnamon though.

Re: Intel M 32bit

That model can accept a 2GB ram card (according to specifications). Swap out the 512 MB card for a 2 GB. Cost is about $15 The 30GB SSD can be replaced with a 128GB SSD for $30. 19.1 XFCE 32 bit will fit and run fine. If you do not have a DVD. They can be bought with a USB adapter for $20. Burn a fl...

Re: Install USB wifi dongle

Try connecting to the enternet with the wired connection. Then search for the website for the manufacturer . They may have the driver, OR, in your "software manager" there may be a driver. OR, in your "software settings" do the "Driver Manager" It may find it and install it.

Re: Not Detecting WIfi

Does your laptop/netbook have a WIFI on/off switch?
If you are on a wired connection, post "inxi -Fxzd" from your terminal (copy & past).

Re: that "Ah HA!" moment...has arrived

Sounds good Starkman.
Enjoy mint with the attitude that mint will do what you want it to do, Not what Windows tells you to do (Like pay for every single app that will time out in a few weeks or months and require you to pay through the nose to get it as well as the files you used it on). :?
