Any bets that this means Steam in Ubuntu will be snapcraft-only? ;)
I wouldn't be surprised.

Yes, it means that even 32-bit versions of packages are being dropped.

Re: Ubuntu Devs Testing Chromium Browser Transition From Deb To Snap Package - How will this affect Mint?

This is Googlew deciding to move to a snap format, not Ubuntu. It does make me think that they're not so serious about supporting chromium for Linux anymore though. No, it isn't. Google maintains Chrome on Linux, not Chromium. The Ubuntu developers are switching from packaging Chromium as a deb to ...

Re: Ubuntu Devs Testing Chromium Browser Transition From Deb To Snap Package - How will this affect Mint?

I should note that I don't have a problem with snaps or flatpaks, in fact I use both. There are some issues though, such as theming and other desktop integration stuff. I was just wondering what Mint's plan would be (if they would have a plan at all) regarding this.

Re: No Flash Update?

Has Mint stopped flash updates or are they just slow? I don't have the current version 32.0.0.207. I know I can update it manually, but would rather it come as usual from Mint. Flash updates come from Canonical, makers of Ubuntu, which Mint uses the repos of. Can you type this in the terminal: apt ...

Ubuntu Devs Testing Chromium Browser Transition From Deb To Snap Package - How will this affect Mint?

https://www.linuxuprising.com/2019/06/ubuntu-devs-testing-chromium-browser.html Ubuntu will soon offer Chromium browser as a snap package instead of a regular deb package. This is not only for the upcoming Ubuntu 19.10 Eoan Ermine, but also for the already released Ubuntu 19.04 (Disco Dingo), and fo...

Re: [SOLVED] Why isn't Lutris in Software Manager?

Yes, I know you can link to the PPA and install it with apt-get (which I did). But I'd trust it more and feel more comfortable if it was available from the Software Manager. I know it's no big deal, but I'm just curious... The Lutris team officially maintains the Lutris ppa. Also, Strider (main lut...

I'm wondering about the VLC version being 3.0.6, I don't even see that with the flatpak version. So, maybe this leans to the realm of "you have held broken packages".
VLC flatpak is on 3.0.6, I just checked.

Don't install daily builds unless you're an experienced linux user and you've made backups / know how to revert back to the stable version.

Re: Previous repositories still needed for WINE?

If you want the wine development or staging versions you will still need the winehq repo. If you want to stick with the stable wine, the mint repository should be fine provided they keep it up to date.

Re: Monthly News – May 2019

The new community site redesign is pretty nice. I noticed a problem with the "avatar button" on the top right of the page. When clicking it, the menu disappears too quickly. This is on the latest Firefox. It only seems to happen on the main page of that site. https://i.imgur.com/wqGeLX4.gif

Re: caution on upgrading to Wine 4.0 bionic

I was going to say nonsense, there is no wine 4.0 in the bionic repos (and in fact there isn't), but as it turns out Clem put his spin of the winehq 4.0 packages into the LM 19.0 and LM 19.1 repos today. I could have understood that as part of a point release maybe but just silently pushing a full ...

Re: When for FF 66.0.4?

66.0.4 just hit the Ubuntu repository. If you use the default settings in Mint you'll receive Firefox from the Mint repository, instead of the Ubuntu one. That may take a bit longer to get updated. You can set Mint to prefer Firefox from the Ubuntu repositories using this guide: https://easylinuxtip...
