How can I D/L LMDE 2 Mate?
Find a local (to you) mirror and D/L it directly... MIRRORS

Example. Click the example and then click whichever ISO you want... it will D/L. :mrgreen: If you use a mirror closer to you, you will probably get faster D/L speeds...

Re: Can someone recommend an AntiVirus program?

You don't need an antivirus! LINK

I have never used an antivirus on Linux and in 7 years of "full time" use both at home and at work, I have never had any problems with any virus.

Re: Mint 19 Manual Install - Partition locations/sizes

OK, so you want to dedicate 12GB of the 120 GB SSD to "/". What are your plans for the remaining 108GB? I made the root bigger, so I have 90 GB free there. I'm open to suggestions. I would probably make "/" about 50 GB and leave /home in /. I would also put SWAP on the SSD as well because, if you a...

And my question regarding whether I should use hibernate vs. suspend? Only find different opinions about it online.
Yep, opinions vary. I never intentionally use either.

Re: Linux Mint and laptops

Ignore it. I seriously doubt anyone using linux on a laptop or desktop "could ever (within reason) need - 25 GB". RAM + 1GB is a good measure. Use that. Agreed x 2... The recommendation of 25 GB was supposed to be absurdly large! If he starts out with 4 GB of RAM, a 5 GB SWAP would probably work ju...

Re: Linux Mint and laptops

I am planning a new install/transfer of my data to another computer that has 4 GB of memory, but I will upgrade it to 8; should I initially create a 9 GB swap when installing mint? I don't remember making the decision before but since I have a 8 GB swap now, it must have been default in the mint in...

Re: Linux Mint and laptops

3) If you want to be able to hibernate your laptop, use a SWAP size a little larger than your RAM size. On my 8GB laptop I use a 9GB SWAP. If you don't ever hibernate, you could use a smaller SWAP and use the disk space in / or /home. Don't increase your SWAP. In order to get more disk space availa...

Re: Linux Mint and laptops

Have 2.1 GB remaining, mint keeps bringing up warnings. I'm glad you pointed this out as I had no idea about it, I see that I can determine under "Processes" where the memory is being used. 2 GB to Windows 7 in my virtualbox which I can decrease and see what happens. My browser is using maybe close...

Re: Linux Mint and laptops

Attached. Could it have anything to do with the fact that I am running out of space on my HD? Have 8 GB memory which is the max for my system, but as the cost to replace the HD with a bigger one approaches the cost of getting another laptop, I might do that, since I do not know that my current lapt...

Re: Linux Mint and laptops

If your RAM usage is typically in the 80s and 90s, your performance would probably benefit from either running less tasks simultaneously OR installing more RAM. That's not necessarily true. The OP could have 32GB and still see that much RAM consumed due to the DE, say for example, caching large fil...

Re: Linux Mint and laptops

So in the picture that you posted, I just need to pay attention to the "swap" and not the "memory"? I looked at it periodically throughout the day and the memory was often in the 80s and above 90%, while the swap did not seem to go beyond 12-15%. Maybe you RAM needs are greater than mine!...

I'm either directly of indirectly responsible for Mint on about 7 or 8 Dell laptops . All function perfectly. The most recent purchase was in May this year.

Re: How do i find out what time a email was deleted in linux mint?

I need to find the exact time a email was deleted on thunderbird So the IT guys at a company don't know how to do this (or if it can be done) and they have someone ask on a user forum... hmmmm... You may be able to recover the email if it wasn't deleted from the trash folder. Even if it has, it isn...
