Re: UNDELETE files SD-card

That is why I asked if anyone has own experience ! I do not know how to use them ; Both are installed . That is why I provided links to their websites where documentation exists. EDIT: Specifically from there: "More than 60 pages about data recovery using TestDisk & PhotoRec and other tools" Joe

Re: Advice with regard to AMD CPU's

They are reluctant to give me a full refund but offered £10 for the difference between the processors. Here in the UK the A8 is £69 and the A4 is £35! That's unfortunate. I know I'd be challenged with doing business with them. Difficult to understand why they had such big problems. Indeed. And what...

Re: Advice with regard to AMD CPU's

It seems that they couldn't get Mint to work with the A8 and had used an older unit instead and hoped I wouldn't notice! While I don't specifically have an AMD A8 7650K processor to test, I find that to be a dubious claim by the shop. It's further conspicuous that they never told you this until you...

Re: Questions about Mint 19.2

Are there any glaring flaws/glitches/issues with 19.2? I went from 19 to 19.1 a few months back... but my fave screen saver was missing and my system acted slightly wonky, so I reverted back to 19 via time shift. Glaring flaws? Not that I'm aware of. There's more information in the Release Notes. I...

Re: System error messages

My system works but is slow and uses excessive CPU at the best of times. CPU: Intel Core2 Duo T6570 Memory: 2.40 GiB Errors aside, with that CPU and RAM, I'd probably go with the Xfce desktop instead of Cinnamon. Either the new LM 19.2 Xfce (supported until April 2023), or the even lighter LM 18.3 ...

Are you referring to the conspicuous LM menu button and desktop background? And the green paint, of course. :)

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).

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.
