Re: Best backup utility for Mint 19.2?

For backing up Mint only I've heard the snapshot tool is good. If there are multiple OS's on one drive I've found Clonezilla to work reliably even though it takes a while to do it.

Just Curious

I haven't been around the forums a lot lately, and just curious whatever became of Administrator Oscar799. I kind of miss chatting.

Re: Can't install kubuntu-desktop on Mint 19.1 XFCE

Big kudos and a large thank you to the member who built the 19.1 KDE version. I just installed and configured it and it is absolutely terrific! Every bit as good as Kubuntu, and has that Minty goodness.

Re: Wine unter Linux Mint 19.1

I feel your pain. The only way I could get wine to install correctly and actually work was to follow the instructions for installing from wine HQ. https://linuxconfig.org/install-wine-on-ubuntu-18-04-bionic-beaver-linux And don't forget to add 32 bit architecture to your system with: sudo dpkg --add...

Absolutely Amazing!!!

Just pulled the Cinnamon 19.1 Tessa beta fresh from Heanet. Proceeded immediately to check it out live and then do a fresh install to metal. What a pleasant surprise. I had been using KDE Neon because I'm a fan of plasma desktop. Now I'm back to Mint Cinnamon because it looks just like plasma. I lov...

Ubuntu 10 year support vs. Linux Mint 19

Just curious what impact, if any, Ubuntu's announcement of 10 years support for Ubuntu 18.04 will have on support time for Linux Mint 19. Any thoughts from Clem or the other developers?

Re: Mint 19 or LMDE 3

Personally I prefer LMDE 3 over Mint 19. LMDE just "feels" more stable and plays better with my hardware than Mint 19.

Re: Cinnamon versus KDE

Since the advent of LMDE 3 Cindy I have reversed my preferences to Cinnamon. LMDE 3 is so stable and reliable that I just can't pull myself away from it now. I've tried going back to KDE and it lasted a day before I restored my Clonezilla image of LMDE 3.

Re: How to upgrade from LMDE2 Mate to LMDE3 Mate

Mate is not going away. It is just not in LMDE 3 by default. You can install the Mate desktop in LMDE 3 (because it is already available in Debian repositories), but it will be generic Mate from the Mate team and not Linux Mint Mate.

Re: What was your very first post as a newbie?

My first post as a newbie in January 2010: I also am among the growing number of Windows users who wanted more from my os. Three weeks ago I downloaded Mint 8 and installed as a dual boot with Windows 7 on my new laptop. It only took me one day to begin using Mint almost exclusively, when I saw that...

You can edit the sensors plugin so that it does not show the "sensors" title and shows only the temp.
