Re: Used space on ssd growing every day about 200MB

I think so, too. :lol: If you don't want to be bothered by Flatpaks anymore, you can remove the Flatpak infrastructure entirely: sudo apt-get purge flatpak This will also remove two useless meta packages (mint-meta-cinnamon and mint-meta-core) and mintinstall (Software Manager). Meta packages are ju...

Then remove Viber and see whether that helps.

Re: Used space on ssd growing every day about 200MB

Thank everyone for help. How I can check what apps are flatpak and how I can remove it. This case about NV graphic card is made by system (i have not chosen that flatpak app). One thing is sure: it's not your Nvidia driver. Launch Software Manager, click the Flatpak button (bottom right), click Fla...

Re: Used space on ssd growing every day about 200MB

As I thought..... Flatpaks can take up a lot of space, and they're being updated very often. I advise to remove some Flatpak applications.

Re: Used space on ssd growing every day about 200MB

Indeed inspect deeper. Is perhaps /var/lib/flatpak the big folder?

Install pavucontrol and try that. In the terminal:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install pavucontrol


Then:

Re: Why the change in 18 from wlan(?) to wlx..and a whole string of characters?

A more unique identification. It does take some getting used to.

You can reverse this though, by (if I recall correctly) adding some boot parameter to Grub. With some Googling you'll probably find it easily....

From the same web page: I advise to remove Mono:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get remove mono-runtime-common

Do I need security suite now? And what if I install PlayOnLinux or Wine?

Your choice. Personally, I'm not taking that risk.

"Mono is present by default in Linux Mint. In Ubuntu and Debian, Mono will be installed automatically whenever you install an application that needs the Mono infrastructure, like media player Banshee and notes app Tomboy. I advise to avoid those and install non-Mono based alternatives instead....

Re: Security?

Well, then set a BIOS password which you have to enter before even Grub launches. That's what I've done with my laptops. Not failsafe, but it buys you some time after a theft....

Much ado about physical access. Note that physical access will always be risky, no matter what.

Re: Are Linux distributions really so different from one another?

For me, VMs are useful for taking a generic look at the release and it's operations or running a release in a separate instance such as Windows. As far as I am concerned, the only true test is on the actual hardware. True, running it off of a USB comes close and is fine if the final destination is ...

Re: Linux Mint 18.3 “Sylvia” Cinnamon released!

Am I missing something? I did the update, and I expected something new and wonderful, but I see no difference? The proof of the pudding is in the eating. :) Many incremental improvements and bug fixes, plus some nifty new tools. As you've apparently upgraded from an older version, you might need to...

Re: Update manager 4 level updates

I just managed to get the attention of Clem on IRC. Unfortunately, Clem doesn't think it's a good idea to integrate Timeshift into Update Manager: <pjotr> It might be useful to integrate timeshift into mintupdate. So that before installing any level 4 updates, you can press a button to make a snapsh...

Sounds like a hardware problem. Because it happens both in Linux and in Windows, and because it's apparently random.

Re: Update manager 4 level updates

If you create a restore point with Timeshift before applying updates, you can revert, if anything goes wrong. So you get both - security by applying updates and stability (by reverting if needed). It can even be discussed, if with TS the level system is still needed, but a better integration betwee...
