Before installing Mint I was using xfce4-notes under Xubuntu

Can I use it in Mint ?
I only recommend that in the Xfce edition of Linux Mint. Not in Cinnamon or Mate.

Which can be replaced by the fine non-Mono based notes application Xpad.

Re: Have I made a mess while trying to uninstall mono?

All is well. The only application you've lost besides what's already mentioned, is the small notes application Tomboy. Which can be replaced by the fine non-Mono based notes application Xpad.

Re: Update manager error

Solve this mess in one stroke:

1. Launch the application Software Sources.

2. Down below, on the right, click the button "Restore the default settings".

3. Finally, press the button "Update the cache" (on the upper right).

Re: Update error

Try this: 1. Remove the 4.10 and the 4.8 kernel that are still installed. Update Manager - panel: View - Linux kernels. 2. Then do this: sudo rm -v /boot/vmlinuz-4.10* 3. Finally, ask yourself: given the fact that this is probably caused by full disk encryption (which creates a separate /boot): why ...

Re: Ubuntu wil standaard diagnostische data gaan verzamelen

Mint is toch Ubuntu? :?: Zoals de Duitsers in dit soort gevallen zeggen: Jein. Ja und nein. Ubuntu is weliswaar de codebasis van Mint (het halffabrikaat), maar de ontwikkelaars van Mint slopen er dingen uit en voegen er dingen aan toe. Die gegevensverzamelfunctie lijkt me nou typisch iets wat ze er...

Dat hangt ervan af of de ontwikkelaars van Mint deze innesteling wel/niet gaan doorvoeren in de Linux Mint 19 series
Zeer onwaarschijnlijk dat Mint dit ook gaat doen. :)

Re: clarity on firejail and flatpacks.

Firejail isolates your personal folder (with only a few unavoidable exceptions) from the applications running in Firejail. Flatpacks outside of Firejail, have full access to your personal folder....

Re: Bad performance Linux Mint Cinnamon 18.3

Thank you for the reply! I don't know if that is the problem, my laptop has 8GB DDR4 ram memory, 256GB SSD and Intel I5 6300U, in my opinion it would be strange if that isn't enough to run Linux Mint normally with effects. Windows 10 worked without any problem, and I think Windows 10 is more hardwa...

I have installed every update ever presented to 18.3 on this computer, level 1-5 and I've never had an issue. Perhaps I've just been lucky but I'll continue to do so....... :wink: Not level 5, because there have been none so far. If there ever would be one and you would install it, you're rather li...

I'm reluctant to turn off visual effects though because I read that that can cause some problems.
I wouldn't know what problems: it's something I always do with Cinnamon, because I don't care for bling-bling.... Never had any problem at all because of that. :)
