Re: LM 19 snapshots

Yes. The setup options use several terms, or abbreviations that I have no idea what they mean. Perhaps I can't fully use timeshift because I'm running it in a vm? I'm not a tech guy. I liked the "don't break my computer' option in LM18 regarding what to update. I'm clueless about what should be sel...

Re: Sound Issue - Freshly Installed LM Xfce

That's where's I was heading, but I didn't know what "speakers" would be in the users language. :oops: No problem :) I just hope that works for them. I'm using Mint Xfce 18 right now and saw the post and just started to click around to get an idea what could be preventing audio. Luckily in 7 years ...

Re: Distro-hopping: my results and impressions

What you found is that no Linux distro is perfect :) I look for the one that comes closest to my needs. If you want rolling--Arch or Debian Sid. Fast moving but not rolling--Fedora. If like myself, and I suspect many folks here, you want stability and great support--Mint. I would also add MX as grea...

Re: Sound Issue - Freshly Installed LM Xfce

Maybe too simple of a suggestion, but when you click on the speaker icon on the panel, and output devices, do you have port set to speakers?

Re: 18.3 XFCE is so rock solid

345mb ram on fresh boot Mint Xfce 18. When xfce 19 is finished will be interesting to see how that compares.

Re: Mint 19 Question

It's a beta release, which is why the update policy is different. Betas have a TON of updates and it's even more likely for updates to break things. But they're necessary in beta releases, they make no sense otherwise. Beta releases are not supported, by definition. Do not expect them to work as we...

Re: 18.3 XFCE is so rock solid

My 2cents worth. I have absolutely no idea what I am talking about. I dabbled with Linux in some form about 10 years ago, but nothing much until recently when I put Mint 18.3 XFCE on my Acer Aspire 5310. It was terrible on Vista, had all sorts of bugs. Now on Mint it goes well, I am thinking of put...

Re: Linux Mint 19 “Tara” MATE – BETA Release

Recent updates to MATE beta and it is looking better. 455mb ram at boot with just terminal open. Themes are looking better as well. Using Mint Y and it looks awesome.

Re: Mint 19 Question

I actually liked the old update system as kernel updates could occasionally bork your system and it was set conservatively by default. I am glad to hear it can be re-enabled. I'm Leary of so much weight being put on Timeshift as there are too many instances where it simply will not work, such as dua...

Re: Right-Mouse-Click in Mate and KDE Version Dying??

Suggest you boot into a live USB/CD version of the distro to see if you're running into the same issues. If not, probably easiest to do a clean install because something seems seriously messed up on your end, what you are seeing is obviously not intended behaviour. If you've got the same issues on ...

Re: 18.3 XFCE is so rock solid

Sorry ... My bad :oops: No problem. Cinnamon users are going to be quite pleased with version 19. MATE is also close to being perfect as far as the 19 version as well. Xfce just seems the one that has the furthest to go before being ready for the version 19 release, and version 18 was so awesome it...

Re: 18.3 XFCE is so rock solid

I still use Linux Mint 18.0 Xfce and find no reason to change it works without problems on my 10 year old computers. 8) I did a fresh install of Mint 18 Xfce last night and it reminded me why I love it so much. Everything worked perfectly out of the box. It is so lightweight and feels comfortable l...

Re: 18.3 XFCE is so rock solid

I've been using Mint 19 Cinnamon for over a week now and it is not that buggy at all. I'm at the point where I don't see any difference between it and my rock solid 18.3 Cinnamon. I really don't see any difference between either OS ????? Yes, Cinnamon was incredibly solid out of the box for Mint 19...

Re: Linux Mint 19 “Tara” MATE – BETA Release

If you say so :) We've been doing it this way for years. Clem seems to have a system for sorting it all. It gets put in the linux mint roadmap on github and then the rest of us can just go there to pick out things to work on. I don't see how a forum thread would be any better. It also doesn't requi...

Re: 18.3 XFCE is so rock solid

In my honest Opinion the 18.3 is so rock solid it is going to be so hard for a newer version to supersede it. Ok it may boot 2.3 milliseconds faster or may be able to leap a little bit taller building in a single bound but holy bejebus christ I am really so liking this compared to the other OS choi...

Re: Linux Mint 19 “Tara” MATE – BETA Release

Too bad bug reporting is so difficult, and there is no feedback. "lost in the blog"... Wasn't that an old sci-fi movie in the 60's? That's a lousy way to handle bug reporting :( There has to be a better way to do that. And it has to be a pain for them too with so many posts. Honestly, setting up a ...
