Re: Will Linux Mint become a rolling distribution?

I do find it a bit frustrating when people say they can't be bothered to repair a bad install when a very small effort prior to carrying out the install would have avoided the issue in the first place, then they blame the distro itself. My first major install on Mint failed, but because I had taken...

Re: Why did you decide to install Linux Mint??

The X240 has a 12" screen, it's dinky compared to my HP Pavilion which has a 15" screen, it's more like a netbook, but better built. I don't have a problem with it's size at all, I like it My X201 is the same size and I pretty much live in that. In fairness, I'm of a rather compact build size, myse...

Re: Will Linux Mint become a rolling distribution?

Hello Minto2019 and Welcome to Linux Mint Forums, If on the other hand you looking for a rolling release model I would recommend Manjaro-stable. Hi. I mentioned in my original post that I had tried Manjaro. It would have been stable, I'm sure. As I said, it worked brilliantly. Until it didn't. I'd ...

Re: Why did you decide to install Linux Mint??

Finaly when I discovered the Mint 17.3 I was sold. At home. You and me, both! I bought a dinky 6 year Lenovo i5 X240 for not a lot of money, as a back up Dinky? My daily driver is a X201. I wouldn't call that dinky. Instead, I'd use terms like 'rock solid'. It runs Cinnamon just fine. I just bought...

Thanks! :)

Re: The importance of using Timeshift etc before updating...

I In summary, I think a lot of people could avoid a lot of pain if they took these simple steps, and I'm sure plenty do, but if you don't, or hadn't thought about it, it's quick, easy and you'd be daft not to. For experienced users, I'm not trying to teach anyone to suck eggs, I just thought some n...

Re: Why did you decide to install Linux Mint??

I've had to use windows since 3.1, and in all that time never really trusted it, it's always felt like I'm fighting the OS to get things done. Then there's all the malware and garbage out there, many programs trying to covertly install add-ons and other apps. Don't get me started on the malware that...

The importance of using Timeshift etc before updating...

I'm not sure if this is the correct forum for this but I'm sure it will be moved if it's not. I thought I'd write about this as it may help new users with the terminal jitters and people worried about updates failing. So I'm new to Linux Mint myself, though not new to Linux itself, I have another ma...

Hi Tony,
You'll find Mint very "boring". Everything just works. ;D
Hi, to be fair everything has just worked with Manjaro so far, but I'm just doing a kernel update with Mint, so I'll let you know :)

Hi from England...

Hi, another new Linux Mint user here, but I'm not new to Linux. My main laptop is currently running Manjaro XFCE, which I really like, but I've just bought a dinky Lenovo X240 and thought I'd try installing Mint XFCE on it ( It won't install on my HP Pavilion gaming for some reason, it doesn't even ...
