However, i did already have the "mint-meta-codecs" pre-installed during a Mint 19 clean install.

Re: VLC Not working right on Mint 19 clean install

@gm10 Thx. That fixed it, for Mint 19, but in my system case, ONLY in combintation with your VLC settings suggestion, AND, your other i965-va-driver, libvdpau-va-gl1 pkgs ..., for Mint 19. As a side note, even without the "i965-va-driver, libvdpau-va-gl1 pkgs ..." in Mint 19, xplayer, mplayer, mpv, ...

I really hope the Theme portion will be addressed in the 19.xx series. I'm a dark theme lover and the dark is ok but needs to be more polished. The icons in the task bar looks horrible, dont match with nothing and the green with the dark theme is just horrible. Thats my thoughts...
agreed.

Re: Mint-y theme and icons

also, for Mate,
it would be nice to have a Mint-Y-Dark-Aqua/Blue/... themes, similar to the more popular Mint-X-(Color) Themes.
Although, customizing the existing mint-y-dark can get fairly close to what I want, but still, I'm not a fan of the mint-y-flat/squared icons.

Re: Upgrade Mint 17.3 to Mint 18.3 possible?

Yes, 17.3 to 18.3 is possible, as mentioned instructionally in other links in this thread.
I did it for a friend, using only Teamviewer.
I ended up with an 18.0 first, and from there, it's a simple post-upgrade to 18.3
In other words, reboot first, and ask questions later.
