Re: I need help I want to install vulkan, overclock and fan control

Re: Mint Cinnamon 19.1 And KDE Plasma 5.15.4

The Ubuntu Bionic repos have got 5.12.7 - so that's all you are going to get without adding additonal repos. You could attempt to add the KDE neon repo to a Mint install. Don't know how well that would work. Search Install Neon over Kubuntu for guidance. Or you could use a Distro that has the lates...

This is actually good news as it's an indication of trust, from a prominent outfit, of FOSS and it makes me wonder whether MS...
