Re: Linux Mint 19 very slow boot times of ten minutes or so.

The 4.15 series certainly doesn't like my Dell Latitude D630.
Have you tried the "video=SVIDEO-1:d" fix?

Re: k3b in Mint 19 Cinnamon

It might have something to do with the settings in Synaptic. Have a look at section 1.2.1 in

I followed these these tips before installing K3b and it works fine with all the plugins installed.

Re: k3b in Mint 19 Cinnamon

Problem warning asking for MAD MP3 decoding library appeared again after a fresh install of LM19 Cinnamon v.2 ISO. K3b was missing a lot of plugins. Went into Synaptic and searched for K3b and marked for complete removal. After removal, selected Edit/Fix Broken Packages, then reinstalled K3b from Sy...

Re: k3b in Mint 19 Cinnamon

I had the same issue with K3b couple of weeks ago. Since then I have done a fresh install of LM19 and K3b is working as it should. I suspect a software update has sorted the problem. Make sure your system is fully updated and try K3b again.

Re: Linux Mint 19 very slow boot times of ten minutes or so.

The problem with very long boot times with LM19 on my old HP laptop was initially resolved by downgrading the kernel to below 4.8. I had noticed boot times creeping up from kernel 4.8 and above. However kernels 4.15 boot times were too long to be of practical use. All versions of kernel 4.15 were gi...

Re: Slow Boot

I've installed LM19 on three old laptops now. 2 ten year old laptops had very slow (over 5 min) boot times with all the 4.15 kernels. While a 12 year old Lenovo 3000 C100 laptop with IDE HDD managed to boot in a respectable 1 min 20 sec with the 4.15 kernels. My solution for the slow booting laptops...

Re: Linux Mint 19 Dual Boot Win 10

Try pasting this into the command prompt in Win10;

bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\ubuntu\grubx64.efi

Restart and hopefully the Grub menu will appear.
Did you install Win10 first followed by LM19?

Re: Linux Mint 19 very slow boot times of ten minutes or so.

First post so hope it's ok with you guys. I have just installed LM19 Cinnamon on two laptops both about 10 years old and experienced the very slow boot times. In order to speed up the boot times I installed xenial kernel 4.4 by adding "deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial-security main" to t...
