Re: cant see preview of video in icon in list mode

...smurphos, the default xplayer-based thumbnailer uses gstreamer as it's backend,
so out of curiosity, do you have gstreamer1.0-vaapi installed?

Modify the line there as:

Save. Then sudo update-grub & reboot. No promises - but it deserves a try.

Re: Spectre V2 warning on fresh Mint 19 install

...the spectre_v2 mitigation defaults to (what else?), ' auto '. You could *probably* avoid that 5sec delay & thereby masquerade that message, by passing it spectre_v2=retpoline,generic (since that's what it chose anyway). However, this does not explain why such happens in the first place. Googling ...

Re: help, new user, installing amd graphics drivers

...if your desktop is MATE, Control Center -> Desktop Settings -> Window Manager: set it to Marco+Compton.
Log-out (or reboot), see if that takes care of the video tearing.

A similar procedure for XFCE as well...set it to xfwm4+Compton.

No idea about Cinnamon, sorry.
