The only place that I have ever seen a Safely Remove Drive icon on the bottom right of the panel is in Windows - not in Linux Mint.

Re: Unable to Install Package "snapd"

I am told that snapd is surely in the Stretch (stable), Buster (testing) and Sid (unstable) debian archives, according to the debian package search.
What release is LMDE based on?

I guess I don't know how to do it. I launched Synaptic Package Manager, went to Settings -> Repositories, s...

Not exactly.

There should be a space between latest/ and testing.

The reason I am asking is also because, according to DistroWatch.com, LMDE 201403 has just been released but when I run Update Manager nothing comes up. Then please read a little more in the LMDE FAQ :) LMDE is a rolling release; you don't care about new releases of the ISO. See also similar questi...
