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...

If you need help with some specific program, how to install or use it on Linux Mint, you can post in Software & Applications.

Re: Linux Mint 19 Tara installatie problemen ( de oplossing ?)

Er schijnen wederom problemen te zijn met updates van Ubuntu voor grub, als je deze tijdens installatie van Linux Mint 19 (of Ubuntu 18.04) laat installeren. Dat gebeurt standaard als er een netwerkverbinding is gedurende installatie. Advies van JeremyB is om tijdens installatie van Linux Mint 19 (o...

Re: Blender bugs

Blender comes from the Ubuntu 18.04 repositories (or Flathub, currently having the same version) on Linux Mint 19. It's in the Ubuntu universe repository which means the package was imported from Debian and repackaged for Ubuntu by volunteer maintainers but it's not supported by Ubuntu. I don't know...

Re: OSDisc CD install

Welcome to the Linux Mint forums. Yes, you just pay OSDisc for the convenience of having a DVD with Linux Mint on it shipped to you. It also helps fund the Linux Mint project. There's nothing else to buy. You can also download Linux Mint manually and burn it to a DVD or use a tool to write it to a U...

Re: Blender bugs

Be specific please. Which Linux Mint are you on, what is your Blender version and what are the issues you're having.

Mind that from Linux Mint 18.3 onwards you'll find 2 versions of Blender in Software Manager for installation. The package from the Ubuntu repositories and the flatpak from Flathub.

Re: kernel features question

No, older kernel releases only get security updates during their support period. However, Linux Mint using the Ubuntu HWE kernels so you periodically get a new kernel release for enablement of newer hardware.

Try starting it from the terminal, to see if that provides any error messages about the cause. Open the terminal program from your menu and run the command:

Timeshift was introduced with Linux Mint 18.3 and has since been backported to all previous Linux Mint versions. Install it and create a snapshot before doing upgrade in place.

To all those who are unhappy with the decision to make Cinnamon the default and wish the option to install Mate instead wasn't fraught with uncertainty, I refer them to the above blog.
I couldn't find anything in there that answers questions about MATE. Perhaps you can link to specific comment?
