Re: Best kernel linux mint 19.2 - Thinkpad t480

Do a Timeshift systems back up first, then if there are any issues with the new Kernel, you can simply regress back.

You are advised to stay within the advised Kernels, EXCEPT if you hardware is so new the suggested Kernel will not have the required drivers for the hardware to function correctly.

Have you checked the Login Window user settings - access via Menu.

Re: worthless popup blockers

I use UBlock Origin - and on the sites re "turn off your Ad Blocker" message, you can disable javascript (from the menu) - which seems to prevent them.

Also prevents video's auto playing on News sites !

I do not understand why you are only offered 0-54?

Perhaps you need to remove the 'Solved' from this post, until someone more experienced can advise.

Re: [SOLVED] After update 19.2, upd.manager keeps prompting Kernel 4.15.0-54

Yes, the 5. series Kernels are newer. These are supplied for those people that have the very new 'bleeding edge' hardware that may be unsupported or problematic with the official supported Kernel. Likewise, older Kernels are also supplied, for old hardware that may not be able to use the current sup...

Re: Timeshift on usb stick

My understanding is that Timeshift's primary use is to save system settings, and not users data ( though it can save this).
