Re: Can't start Linux Mint 19.3 after clear out thumbnail cache

I'm the author of that web page.... :) I tried to reproduce your problem on my PC, but deleting all the thumbnails and rebooting, went flawlessly. As expected: it's wholly improbable that deleting thumbnails in a user folder , should cause boot failure for the entire system . So there's some other t...

Re: WLAN - no connection.

Ok, thanks and can you say, for all "normal" printers exists driver in Linux? For example for Brother HL-L2370DN can I see: Driver: Windows 7 und höher, MAC OS 10.10.5 und höher...

Re: What is your strategy for avoiding COVID-19 ?

So far, I've missed an important element in the official communications, at least in The Netherlands: the urgent desirability to improve one's own immune system. We can do a lot to prevent getting ill from Covid-19: - Eat healthy food with lots of green vegetables and good beef (iron); - Take vitami...

Re: Lenovo V15

Good to hear that there's progress. :) I advise to test whether the trackpad does work with the 5.4.x kernel. There's a fair chance, even a likelihood, that that'll suffice. No need to be afraid of the Canonical Kernel Team: they're the guys that create the official Ubuntu/Mint kernels as well. They...

Re: Why does Linux Mint include Timeshift when the main developer doesn't have the time to maintain it?

1. Why would Linux Mint include his software knowing that bugs will come up if he can't be bothered to fix it? Open source software can also be fixed downstream, e.g. by the Mint devs. Don't know whether that happens for Timeshift; would make sense though, as it has been integrated so deeply into m...

ukuu shows some 4.14.160 while 4.15.20 . So is ukuu 4.14 the LTS version?
No. The official Ubuntu/Mint LTS kernels for Ubuntu 18.04.x/Mint 19.x are the 4.15.x and the 5.4.x (the latter currently still only semi-officially available by means of the Canonical Kernel Team PPA).

No. It should be at -99, not -20.

Re: Cant install ukuu

If you simply need a newer kernel series than the 5.3.x, then you don't need UKUU: the 5.4.x has already arrived in the Canonical Kernel Team PPA: https://easylinuxtipsproject.blogspot.com/p/hacks-mint.html#ID8 (item 8 ) My main machine is already running on it: pjotr@lenovo-ideacentre-310S-08ASR:~$...

Re: Kernel origin

Ideally, I'd like a 5.x kernel that has long term support. Within a couple of months you can expect the 5.4.x kernel to be released as successor for the 5.3.x. The 5.4 kernel series will be LTS again, just like the 4.15 kernel series that the Mint 19 series started with. A Mint series, any Mint ser...
