Don't install AV, because it even makes your system less secure:

Re: Slow boot due to timed out waiting for SWAP

There are several ways to solve this, but this is probably the easiest approach (with the additional benefit of optimal disk usage): 1. Boot from the Mint DVD (or Mint USB stick), launch GParted and nuke all existing Linux partitions. Including the swap. 2. Install Mint on one "big" partition, i.e. ...

Re: Lm installeren op Asus t100tam

@ MrEen audio doet het nog steeds erg goed, alleen als ik de t100tam aan de tv aansluit neemt deze het geluid niet over. Is hier ook nog een oplossing voor. Met wat voor kabel sluit je 'm aan? HDMI of wat anders? En zitten er verloopstukken tussen? Over de vastlopers: geef eens de uitvoer van: inxi...

Re: Breaking: Update Manager in 19.2 will no longer feature a protective level system

@michael louwe: don't you think you've made your point (over and over and over and over again)? To me, it begins to sound like whining.

Maybe the mods should consider locking this thread?

They may even force this trend and policy on the users eventually, ala Win 7/8.1's Patch Rollups or Win 10's forced auto-updates, eg in LM 20.x.
Now that's rather silly to expect. Totally unfounded and highly unlikely. :lol:

Re: Everything works, looking for trouble anyway (Ideapad 530S-ARR)

I'd only recommend in a more generic manner the idle=nomwait myself, as the others are somewhat more involved / system-specific... OK, idle=nomwait it is. I've corrected my how-to. :) Having such a generic set of measures has the advantage that they can be applied without previous system-specific r...

Re: Linux Mint 17.x reaches end of life in April

So many glowing comments about the amazing 17.x (especially 17.3). I have to say that I might consider moving to 18.3 until its EOL. However, it is my understanding that Mint (Cinnamon, etc.) are off-shoots that are based on the base code of Ubuntu. Everything else is home-baked by Mint. So, in ord...

Re: nvidia-settings fan speed

I'm using cinnamon, but at work I'm restricted to use ubuntu, so probably no UpdateManager. I don't know ubuntu specifics, and I cannot see any 'kernel tool'. Retrospectively, I might have seen myself that you're running Ubuntu and not Mint, from your inxi output. But don't you think it would have ...

Indeed.

But if anyone sees anything wrong with command above, please let me know.
The command itself is the wrong way. This is the right way, using the built-in kernel tool of Update Manager:

Update Manager - panel: View - Linux kernels
Install the latest kernel of the 4.18 series. Then reboot.

Re: Translation

To get an LTS package updated you'd need to specifically request it. Or hope for a bug fix to a supported package leading to the release of a new package version, anyway. Otherwise your translations will only appear in the next release instead. That's my understanding at least, I'm not collaboratin...
