Re: 'Themes' option will not open and other questions

Noob here too. THEME: Do you mean the Menu / SystemSettings / <Appearance>Themes icon does not open a window? or Do you mean you don't have an icon?

Re: LM often doesn't boot on my MBM2 Pro

I had no success with the bios change disabling SD card in mintbox mini 2 pro. Suspend works fine. You just have to shut it down all the way by unplugging it or holding the power button until it shuts all the way off or it will not reboot from terminal:/shutdown now, logoff GUI + shutdown GUI, or me...

Re: Wi Fi not working on new install- Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon

I had the same problem. It was probably lack of sleep.

[SOLVED] Did I mention that I appreciate the help?

The Linux community is really the only place to get Linux answers it seems. So thank you for your input. I really am up a creek here.

You can get System Sounds by navigating through
