Re: Tips for keeping Linux mint fast and maintenance

You have rather new hardware, so you might benefit from a kernel from a newer series. Try this:
Update Manager - panel: View - Linux kernels
Install the latest kernel of the 5.0 series. Then reboot.

Re: Separate /home for personal files?

some would suggest: - 15 - 25Gb for / root - 4 - 8 Gb for /swap - rest of drive for /home I think that's a fine setup, and it simplifies some things nicely... like reinstalling while keeping your home, including data and settings, intact. (Please note that you should still make a backup when you're...

I repeat: enable the Canonical Kernel Team PPA as described in my previous message, and install the latest kernel it has to offer (currently already the 5.3.x).

Names matter: I don't think Napoleon Bonaparte would have come so far, if his name would have been Hombelin Poircuitte or Judas Meurdesoif. :mrgreen:

Re: Wifi often loses connection

First try this:
Update Manager - panel: View - Linux kernels
Install the latest kernel of the 5.0 series. Then reboot and test.

With a bit of luck that kernel contains a newer Atheros driver that performs better.

Re: gm10's Linux Mint Tools PPA

I see the appeal but I think if we rename it we should move away from the Mint moniker for a proper separation. Originally the tools were forked from Ubuntu's stuff and Mint didn't call itself Mubuntu, either. Actually we could bring it full circle and call it Genome as a play on the G from my hand...
