Re: error on shutdown

I can confirm that after downgrading from kernel 4.15.0-24 to 4.15.0-23, the long start-up problem was resolved. Probably one should not upgrade to 4.15.0-24. I am using Lenovo W520 with Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon. UPDATE. Both the long start-up and long shut-down problem went away as soon as I switche...

Re: Is Linux Mint ugly?

But I agree with him about changing themes , you should be able to switch the entire theme at once too, not just piece by piece. I would love to see packaged themes that change everything in one installation, it would it make a noobs linux experience easier a bit like the way that the panel tweak t...

Re: error on shutdown

Hi Kbexel, I got tired of wading through all the google stuff and decided to bite the bullet and do a new installation and changed from LM cinnamon to Mate too.
