Re: Welcome Ladies - post here :)

Mint is super newbie friendly (not necessarily user friendly) like that. Mint is a cool distro because it opens the door to Linux for people who are unfamiliar with the terminal... kind of like the role Ubuntu played for me in 2010. It gives people a way to escape the tyranny of Windows without comp...

Re: Mint on 16 gb ssd?

Thank you! I ended up installing the OS (Mint 18 KDE) to a new 500gb ssd (it was a surprise present.... when I wrote this question I intented to buy a 2 TB spinner) instead of the old msata one, but your information is still very useful because I think I will put Arch on that 16gb msata ssd. Outside...

Mint on 16 gb ssd?

Hello, I am replacing my failed hdd and I am thinking of installing mint on my 16 gb ssd instead of the 1 tb hdd when it comes. I used to use the ssd for caching. Has anyone installed mint on such a drive? Or, would anyone recommend it? I'm seeing conflicting info regarding this being a healthy amou...

Re: Welcome Ladies - post here :)

I doubt it. I probably should have said I'm a novice to Linux because now that I've been away from it I find I am needing to re-learn everything :) Getting into it again is making me wish I went into programming for my career though. I heavily considered it but let my hatred (not inability...) of ma...

Re: Godmode equivalent?

First of all, thank you everybody for all your kind and helpful responses! I will check out those (multiple) config files you have all pointed me towards, as well as Arandr (well maybe, I already know its just a GUI for xrandr so I will probably just try to use xranr), gconf and dconf. Thats really ...

Re: Welcome Ladies - post here :)

Hello fellow ladies :) I have come to expant the tribe! I used Ubuntu from around 2009-2012 and then when I got a new Thinkpad w530 I decided I missed gaming too much (none of the games I wanted to play I could make work on Ubuntu- despite trying very hard for a long time.) and so I got rid of the w...

Re: Mint 18 screen saver / screen off settings are terrible

I dont think you have to hate linux to have a problem with the settings options in mint, although OP was a little strongly worded in his second post. I also have complaints about the system settings and I think they could use significant work and additions, despite liking everything else so far.. I ...

[SOLVED] Godmode equivalent?

Hello all. I am brand new to Mint but not to linux in general, although I have been away from it for a couple years. I admit to trying several other distros first, which catered more to customization and being able to build it to your exact likings, but I was unable to get my displayport working cor...
