With that, I think you might find the LM Xfce to provide superior performance that LM Cinnamon.

EDIT: Either the new LM 19.2 Xfce (supported until April 2023), or the even lighter LM 18.3 Xfce (supported until April 2021).

You're welcome, and I was referring to where you said Debian 9 was being abandoned and considered old by Debian users.

I'm not familiar with Tuxboot, but if you're just looking to create a bootable USB drive from an ISO, did you try using the USB Image Writer utility that comes with Linux Mint?

Re: Tina is the TOP news item in the final issue of Linux Journal

Looks like they opened up the back issues archive for PDF/EPUB/MOBI files.

Also, the HTML archive has a link for the 2018 ISO.

Incorrect. Where is your response to the request for inxi -Fxz ? I'd go back and fulfill that, so that people who are looking to help you can do so.

What do you mint users like about mint? I like that it "just works" (usually), and I really appreciate the community. Did you come from MAC or PC? I never left the PC architecture. :) Though prior to Linux, I was on Windows XP. Do you dual boot or use Mint exclusively? I multi-boot to several Linux...

Re: Linux Mint 19.2 Install CD Needed!

Will Linux Mint 19.2 (Cinnamon) run on our laptop (see attached spec sheet for our laptop)? I'd like to think LM 19.2 Cinnamon would run, but you'd probably get better performance from LM 19.2 Xfce. Unless I missed it on the spec sheet, I didn't see any CD/DVD drive specs. Point being, due to size ...

Re: subtitle (.srt) problem

Any suggestions, solutions...? The cause is Notepad for Windows 7, as it only recognizes Windows-based "end of line" delimiters. i.e., Carriage Return & Line Feed, not just Line Feed. Given the antiquity of that version of Notepad, I'd suggest to using a more modern text editor on Windows 7, such a...

Re: Kmymoney outside of KDE

I see that one user in a review from 2013 in the Linux Mint software manager writes, "... The only disadvantage is the amount of KDE stuff that is installed with it, but if you can put up with that it's excellent." What the reviewer is referring to is all the non-native KDE libraries that must be i...

Re: Mint Update Missing Level Column

I liked the Levels for what they were, but I think some people misinterpreted their intent, causing some security/kernel updates to never be applied, and hence their absence in LM 19.2 and beyond. C'est la vie.

Keep backups. Stay updated. Carry on.

Re: Cinnamon w WIN7

It would suit my working environment to run Cinnamon at the base and run Win7 on VirtualBox. An experienced IT engineer told me that NOT using Win at the base is a recipe for trouble. Does anyone have knowledge and/or experience? If I'm interpreting what you're saying correctly, you want to run Lin...
