I have this same printer networked with my Mint and macOS machines. Never had an issue. (So far)

Re: Linux on Mac

Yes, I forgot to mention using a wireless keyboard. I use a Logitech K400+ . It works great.

Re: a Laptop manufacturer that has jumped on the Linux bandwagon

I might just have to order one of these. With Mint of course. Is it the Cinnamon DE?

Re: Back again after flirting with Pop!_OS

System 76 is my favortie computer vendor at my job. Their support is great and they stand behind their products. I bought a $6K laptop from them and they took iit back 100% with no questions when it didn't do what they promised. POP! is kinda blah. Everyone at work that gets their hardware just ins...

Have you tried it with XFCE? I think its real snappy with that Desktop. I had some lagging issues with Cinnamon.
I just used the default DE, I did do a lot of tweaking to Gnome though, to get it to what I liked.

Back again after flirting with Pop!_OS

I was using Mint for a little over a year on my MacMini and MacBook Pro. I was really happy with it. I needed a new Laptop. and after much research I decided to go with the Linux company System76, and their Galago Pro. It came pre-installed with Ubuntu 18.4. After a few days of not liking it, I inst...

Re: Birthday gift for me [System 76 Darter Pro]

I guess there's that risk with any company. However, There are many distro's that run on their machines. I know for a fact that both Mint 20, and Ubuntu 20.04 run perfectly well on their computers.

Re: Birthday gift for me [System 76 Darter Pro]

That's really unfortunate. System76 does have a version of Pop!_OS with built in nVidia drivers, burn a copy to a USB and try a live version. Have you tried that? Granted it's not Mint but it's a great distro. I myself am looking at their new Lemur Pro as my next laptop. Fortunately I don't need thu...

Re: Birthday gift for me [System 76 Darter Pro]

Mine uses Coreboot, and yes the battery life is dismal for those who use it in a work environment. Fortunately, I'm retired and only use it at home where the charger is readily available when needed.. The other bad point I would mention is speakers, the speaks are very poor. Other than that I'm very...

Return to Mint

I've been away for quite a while,trying out System76 Pop!_OS on their Galago Pro 4 Laptop, and on my 2012 MacBook Pro. While I really like their distro, I decided to give the new version of Mint 20 Cinnamon a try. So I erased Pop!_OS and installed Mint 20 on the Galago Pro and it's running perfectly...

This can only be achieved through regular security audits, and reviews and utilizing safe practices. Breac...
