Re: Installing Linux Mint 19 from ISO, please read, EFI installs only

Thanks for the information, and also for the GitHub issue (to which I've subscribed). I'll try to get some developers' attention for it on IRC....

Re: Cleaning /var/cache on Mint 19 Cinnamon

...to be on the safe side, only remove the packages under /var/cache/apt/archives/ Or just sudo apt-get autoremove && sudo apt-get autoclean && sudo apt-get clean ... That command is a bit drastic.... Less drastic, and therefore safer, is to use Synaptic: https://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtips...

The real problem with the Update Manager though is that its kernel update logic is bugged and that it updates you to a revoked kernel because of that.
Yes, how is that even technically possible? I thought Ubuntu had pulled the -24 kernel from the repo's. :shock:

Re: Create a separate partition for snapshots during Linux Mint installation ?

Good idea, yes. Give it a minimum of 10 GB, that should be enough for the (big!) primary snapshot plus a few extra. Do the partitioning beforehand, with GParted, after booting from the Mint DVD. Would Dupo really need a minimum of 10 GB for a 64 GB eMMC storage? From my limited experience with Time...

Re: Stuck in 'boxed' guest account

Did a recent install of Mint 19 Cinnamon, which I removed the Switch User option in the logoff dialogue box (to save resources on my 2006 Dell). Just for the record, removing that option from the menu does not save any resources. It's not what Pjotr's guide was saying, either. It only costs resourc...

Re: Hide ".folders"

In your file manager: the key combination Ctrl h

Or by means of the View button in the panel of your file manager - untick: Show hidden files.

Re: Update Manager

Run uname -r in a terminal. If it says 4.15.0 -24 then reboot, after the bios screen/logo press shift to get into GRUB boot menu, select advanced, select a lower version kernel (likely you only have 4.15.0-20). Assuming the boot now went fine, open Update Manager > View > Linux Kernels and remove t...

It says 4.15.0-20-generic for me now.
Maybe better to leave at that until 4.15.0-26 is known to be working fine?
Thank you
The -23 should be fine as well. The redeeming new kernel to wait for is the -28, which is currently in the waiting-room. :)

As Ubuntu has pulled the -24, you probably even can't re-install it after you've removed it. :)

Re: System Load Monitor

The update interval is crucial: set it too low, and the monitor itself will start eating resources like crazy. I recommend to set it no lower than 1.5 seconds (2 seconds is even better).

Have you configured your system to boot into the guest account automatically? If so, simply log off, by means of the log out button in the menu. Or by means of the key combination Ctrl Alt Backspace (keep Ctrl pressed, keep Alt also pressed, tap Backspace once). Can you get into your own account aga...

I think this has something to do with the PATH directory as I had changed that for development the last time I used it.

Re: [SOLVED] New user worried about Microsoft

Synaptic is only for the advanced users, that's true (and an invaluable tool for them, as well).

However: isn't it much more appropriate to compare the Manjaro Xfce add/remove software program, with Software Manager instead?
