Re: I suck at terminal

Ok you suck, but how much you need terminal? Sure some basic commands are needed a few times, but today almost everything can be done without terminal. On emergency cases you might need terminal more. But again emergency is emergency, it's not an every day need and for these you can find help on th...

Mint 19 should be easy as pie to install. Mint 20 is buggy as h*ll on AMD laptops (that's my experience).
don't know about buggy as heck, but missing way to many things in repositories compared to mint 19.

as already stated though, just run a live version to test, but should install very easily.

Re: ivp6 to disable or not

yes, if your isp provides/supports it, use it. ipv6 seems to be hit and miss at times on most isp's from what i've read on other forums, as far as staying connected, so might want to keep an eye on that. i have native ipv6 here on charter spectrum and a 3.1 docsis modem and a fairly new and updated ...

Re: Goodness, what on earth did I do now??

maybe a dumb reply, but why didn't you just create the HnK/Hnk directory first and then simply cut and paste the mkv files into that directory? what you did is exactly why i try to avoid the command line, not to mention typing out all that crap is a pain compared to simply cutting and pasting. ya, i...

Re: Brain-dead move of the day

OUCH. :shock: At least you stopped it in time. I did something stupid many years ago, costing me 1TB of data, most of which was very important to me; I was crushed. Luckily, I had a decent amount backed up. The messed up thing, is that it was my inadvertently misusing the dd(1) command in order to ...

Re: Mint 20 with 4.15 kernel

This is just crazy. It's very probably totally and utterly unnecessary for the OP to want a 4.15.x kernel. :shock: Agree! I have many old computers running Linux Mint 20. The oldest one is 14 years old running Linux Mint 20 XFCE. I have many 10-11 year old computers running Linux Mint 20.0 and 20.1...

Re: Linux Mint 32bit on an old Laptop

I'm new here, where can i download a Linux Mint 32bit. Just to play around with my old Laptop which has an 32bit Processor? To be honest: Provided your statement about the 32-bit processor is true, then your hardware will be so old and so powerless, from today's perspective, that is unlikely that y...

Re: Having trouble remembering my bath.

Or if you live in a house, not a flat or bungalow - turn the tap on, take the laptop into the room underneath the bathroom and wait for the drips of water to start hitting your head. The flaw with that method is eventually the bath will fall through as the boards under it will rot. good one! LOL i'...

just thought i'd add that no update to newest version yet on mint 19 or 20 :( You'd be better off complaining to the waterfox people, Mint has nothing to do with when the newest version comes out. Mint uses Ubuntu repos for app software, and ubuntu doesn't have anything to do with it either. yes, i...

Looking at that link, both installation methods involve using the apt packaging system. WHich means you're going to be notified of any available Linux waterfox updates.
