Smallest/most obscure reason you've ever changed distros?

I am switching out distros on my laptop - the only machine I can use for two weeks - because 19.whatever is the one that plays more games. I am on LMDE3 normally, except all my gaming rigs are packed up and this laptop is literally the only thing I can use, after water leaked in and destroyed my stu...

Software Manager entries are missing [SOLVED]

SOLVED by restarting the PC: I freshly installed LMDE3 on my laptop today. I was installing Skype for work, and clicked Install. A window popped up telling me of flatpak dependencies which also need to be installed. No big deal, but I thought, "wait, there's something else I need to do first," and s...

Throne of Lies

Runs perfectly for me on LMDE3. Anyone else playing this game on Linux?

If you've ever played Mafia at a party with friends, it's like that. Fun, inexpensive game that runs on any system...I've played hundreds of hours at least (I'm afraid to look)

Re: How to install the Tor browser into LM?

Use the simple instructions provided by the Tor Project.

Download the linux version file you need from the following website, and follow the instructions for linux users on that page.

Re: <SOLVED> Spying in Mint?

gomerpile is a troll. I thought his thread about gaming on linux was funny, but this one - while equally half-hearted - is just not as funny.

Re: LMDE Users

I see what you're saying sdibaja, but in my experience the Mint 18.3, 19 releases, etc feel more experimental than LMDE, which is not all the time adding the features dumped into those point releases. With each point release I couldn't tell what small changes were coming until I installed it and not...

Re: LMDE Users

Probably. It's not a pressing matter. Just a feature I'd like to see expanded upon. Who else uses LMDE on production systems?

Re: LMDE Users

It could be helpful if the first dropdown menu in your second image gets a Custom... setting or something greater than 1 hour. In LMDE2 my options are between 1 hour, and never. Nothing inbetween! Or maybe there is a new dropdown menu created after ticking the last option there, about locking the se...

Re: LMDE Users

Yo dude, I use LMDE to host and record a podcast, in addition to light image editing and web development. It's very fast compared to Ubuntu, and nothing ever breaks or gets updated into regression, nor do I encounter crappy design forks. This is the same computer every time I turn it on. Consistency...

Re: Who no longer trusts or uses Facebook?

It's funny that you admit to not reading the article, and then respond only to the headline, using information you imagine is contained in the story. This is typical of [insert whatever generation you belong to]. So you don't bring much to the conversation worth responding to. But I will offer two c...

Automatic network connection gradually slower (over time) to connect after restart (Qualcomm Atheros AR8151)

Hello. How the hell are you guys? I have a nuanced issue that requires a bit of explanation on my part. Why does my ethernet connection take so long to connect after booting into Mint? I assume the ethernet port on my PC is the Qualcomm Atheros AR8151 listed in lspci below. I've noticed on clean ins...
