Re: Linux Mint 19 and Dell XPS 15 9560

Same make, different model. My move to another kernel worked for me, it might work for tpasi. But I agree that he should only try it when he knows how to get back to the original kernel. But instead to continue picking on me, it would be more helpful to address tpasi's problem with a solution that m...

Re: LM 19 and Kernels

Sorry, I should have started with this kind of warning, indeed. I probably too easily assumed that people will not try this when they don't know how to turn it back...
But, do you have thoughts on these LM 19/Kernel combinations?

Re: Linux Mint 19 and Dell XPS 15 9560

Yes, I know, hence the last phrase in my previous message, but it is good to underline. I started a thread in the LM chat about this Kernel question. But since I learned how to install and to revert to other kernels I took this risk, without knowing if it is a real solution or just a too radical a m...

LM 19 and Kernels

Hi all, Recently, I installed linux mint 19 (Mate) on both my laptop and my desktop (after having good expériences since LM 17). It works perfectly well, but both had a longer boot time, especially a long delay between the BIOS (or manufacturer's) splash screen and the LM splash screen (30s instead ...

Re: Linux Mint 19 and Dell XPS 15 9560

Hi tpasi, Having a similar machine, a Dell XPS 13, I encountered the same problem. I finally upgraded to a newer kernel (4.17), which solved the problems for me. Maybe not the most elegant solution, but it worked. But, before you do that, you may want to wait for better informed solutions after havi...

Re: Which Laptop Is Best For Linux?

Hi KamenRiderNecro, Just my experience with a Dell XPS 13 (skylake generation): I got one of the most basic configurations of this laptop, for a reasonable price because refurbished (4G ram, FHD screen - I didn't want the glossy HiRes screens - and W10 installed), got immediately rid of Windows to i...

Re: What made you switch to Linux Mint?

My jump to Linux came about three years ago, when I wanted to speed up my eeepc 1000h netbook (my only laptop at that time) that I used for my classes, including to show videos - Win7 or XP were too much of a load for the netbook. I installed Mint Mate 17.0 and was happy enough with it to install it...

Merci Laurent,

Je suis tombé sur ce problème ce matin et je me disais que j'allais trouver une solution sur les forums de Linux Mint. Pour moi, ça a marché.

Hello from a Dutchman in France

Hi all, Long time lurker, I thought it was time... I have been using linux mint mate since a couple of years now, first on an old netbook to speed it up, compared to Windows, and get acquainted to it, then on my desktop when windows started nagging to replace my W7 to W10 (still have W7 as dual boot...

Re: After todays update-->initctl: Unable to connect to Upstart

Thanks for the solution. I ran into the same problem this morning, booting up to show some film excerpts for my teaching class. Awkward, but I could hook up my drive to another computer linked to the videoprojector. here's the inxi -SGxx output: System: Host: kees-XPS Kernel: 4.13.0-37-generic x86_6...
