Re: LM 20.1?

Hey, did somebody mention already that LM 20.1 will be out in a year? Yes, yes they did, several times. :P Anyway, to actually be constructive: New LM point release don't bring new hardware support. A newer kernel likely won't help you with that, either. In fact, Ubuntu's kernels have broader hardw...

@phd21: With the WiFi adapter plugged in, run "iwconfig" and check to see that power management saving is turned off. this is why i didnt mention much of my experience in already working with this.

Re: WIFI with cabled router?

Hi boyo1991, You are welcome... You still have not answered, what type of USB WiFi adapter do you have, make and model? It would help to know more about your system setup. With the network adapter plugged in, if you run " inxi -Fxzd " and " lsusb " from the console terminal prompt, highlight the re...

Re: So i tried zorin and pop_os

I was disappointed when System76 decided to make their own distro. Maybe more than disappointed, borderline angry. There are hundreds of distros. There are at least a dozen good ones. They couldn't use one of those? If there was something else they wanted to do, they couldn't use all the developmen...

Re: How many are 100% Linux here?

I was in experimental stage for a long time, almost a year. I played around with other Linux distros, especially Zorin because I thought it be a better switch from Windows 10. I kept a dual boot machine with Windows 10 and finally with Mint Mate. The learning curve to getting used the the Linux lin...

Re: MInt and AMD: The desktop freezes almost within 15 seconds

you need this ppa for any amd/radeon hardware. Is this a ryzen only thing? You must also be meaning "this kernel and amd/radeon" as everything works just fine for me on fx series.

Re: Win 7 and Win 10

when i WAS using windows... I prefered 7. I am not a fan of rolling releases personally. But if your talking about going BACK to wind-blows, you will HAVE to use windows 10. Undoubtably the reason your going back to it is because of software support and if you want that, the only option you have now...

Re: So i tried zorin and pop_os

I hear yah, I apologize if what I said was meant to be a recommendation to others. I am by no means a reviewer, merely felt like sharing my personal experience with the system. Yes, they work as a manufacturer too, but man, I cant use that to justify what I feel like I got, personally anyways.
