Re: linuxmint 19 backgrounds settings do not work

It all works here from the v2 ISO. Have you applied updates in Update Manager? I can't think of a possible reason for this aside from some patch update for Cinnamon or Muffin you haven't install yet. Or possibly issue with your graphics card driver? Suggest to add the output of command inxi -Fxrz ru...

Re: does the gigabyte gk force k83 red support linux?

Re: Mint 19 on Coffee Lake Running Okay?

Coffee lake was released 10 months ago and Intel generally have kernel drivers in place before chips are released; fine tuning and fixing any bugs in the months after release. So you can expect it to work without issues on Linux kernel 4.15. I'd be more cautious with the motherboard components. Chec...

Re: Software that you would like to have for Linux

The software I would like to have for Linux is an equivalent to Visual FoxPro (VFP). It's the all-purpose RAD tool which M$ decided to kill because it kept the small to medium size (and some large) businesses from buying their more expensive MS SQL + C# / VB tool combination. What about Harbour htt...

Re: Email server question

Yes. If you use their webmail you're connecting through HTTPS protocol. If you're using an email client you're connecting through IMAP or POP protocol (hopefully with SSL/TLS encryption!). Those all run on different ports normally. Email providers likely, for security purposes, log how and from wher...

Re: Linux Mint Debian Edition 3

As there are no Wine packages in the Cindy (LMDE 3) repository I think safe to assume you'll get the the Wine packages from the Stretch (Debian 9) repositories.

It looks like LMDE 3's Software Manager will indeed support Flatpak out of the box.

Re: Compiing from source when a newer version is required

I take it you're using Linux Mint 17.x? Linux Mint 19 has gdal 2.2.3. I doubt it will cause issues with other programs, unless you're using other "geospatial" programs that use gdal and those need it to be a specific older version. You would probably know that better than me. In any case, to safely ...

Re: Boot very slow after upgrade from 18.3 to 19

This is a known issue with the kernel version 4.15.0-24. Possibly you got that through Update Manager. You can confirm your kernel version for example by running the command inxi -S on the terminal. If you have that version see if a newer version (4.15.0-NN, with NN higher than 24) is available in U...
