I have other methods of mak...

Re: Safety in Linux Mint

Hello, I was thinking about operating systems and their security. I worked 20 year with Mac and still use it for some specific software, but switched previous year partially to Windows 10. I've read that Microsoft collect a lot of information about your system with Windows 10 and even can see your ...

Re: Why So Many Bad Kernels - Compatibility problems between Nvidia driver & kernel

Now comes the strange part... Two weeks ago I installed Cinnamon 19 on my spare HDD...when I tried to install Wine from WineHQ in the Terminal I couldn't...kept getting errors and it's not in the Software Manager which didn't work either. :( So I deleted it and did a clean install of Cinnamon 18.3.....

Re: Why So Many Bad Kernels.

According to Driver Manager I'm running the latest driver...nvidia-340.104-oubuntu 0.16.04.1 But, Bob, your problem is not the microcode. Your problem is, as JeremyB had pointed out, that kernel 4.15.0-xx does no longer support Nvidia driver nvidia-340. So, either you find a newer Nvidia driver, wh...

Re: Why So Many Bad Kernels.

We didn't see you ask for help, you tried to paint a bad picture about the distro to new users, claiming that bad kernels are the norm. We both confirmed that there is no such norm. With comments like yours it's no wonder people are reluctant to complain about problems...Newsflash...Mint isn't pref...

Re: Timeshift. Oh dear.

I'm not a fan of Timeshift because it doesn't backup personal files...so it's not a full backup tool like Windoze System Restore is/was. But it does came in handy because it better than nothing...I have Timeshift set to take a snapshot once a week and easy to use. Once a month I create a System Imag...
