Re: Is it OK to do a fresh install of Linux Mint 19 or are there still issues going on?

It seems as if the new Linux Mint 19 ISO image files are being deployed to the Mint mirror servers at the moment. Some mirror servers may have received them already, some will not have received them, yet. Cf. Linux Mint 19 "Tara" - New ISOs The answer to the initial question, "Is it OK to do a fresh...

Re: Kernel #24 problems

Hello, drwho.

Maybe the section "Touchpad Drivers" in the Tara release notes holds interesting details about switching the touchpad driver software between "libinput" and "synaptics".

Regards,

Re: Kernel #24 problems - hopefully solved by K4.15.0-29#31

Anyone have a guess as to when the problems [...] that were caused by use of Linux Kernel #4.15.0.24, might be fixed ? Well, just a few minutes back, kernel K4.15.0-29#31 has arrived here. :D Whether it fixes all the reported problems on your system, you will have to find out by accepting and insta...

Re: Allgemeine Frage zu Aktualisierung Linux Mint 19

Hallo, K-314. Irgendwo in der Threadmitte stand, dass Mint 18.3 mittels mintupgrade auf Mint 19 aktualisiert worden ist. Seitdem läßt sich wohl mintsources nicht mehr ausführen. Darum scheint der Plan eine Neuinstallation von Mint 19 zu sein, wobei eine Anleitung befolgt werden soll, die ehtron verf...

Re: Software Sources fails

Hi, Peter. I assume mintsources should work with your locale settings, but it fails due to some bug somewhere. What happens if you temporarily overwrite all the other settings by exporting LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8? LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8 mintsources Note: LC_ALL would be valid for mintsources and its child pr...

Re: Allgemeine Frage zu Aktualisierung Linux Mint 19

Hallo, sg92+.

Bitte öffne ein Terminalfenster. Dort gib ein mintsources und drück Enter.
Nun sind zwei Dinge von Interesse:
  • Startet Mint Software Sources (Applikationsquellen)?
  • Werden im Terminalfenster irgendwelche Fehlermeldungen ausgegeben?
    Wenn ja, dann diese bitte hier posten.
Danke.

Re: The existence of a mysterious kernel 4.4.0.130

Hello, ineuw.

The package linux-headers-4.4.0-130-generic is not the kernel itself. Check in Synaptic what it is if you wish to know.
In case you have installed linux-headers-4.4.0-130-generic at some time by accident, Grub will not know and not care about it.

Karl

Hello, malligt. The sentence which confuses me is this one: When I de-select the "Always select kernel updates" in the options tab, it does nothing in synaptic. The optional kernel is still always selected (even though is should not be). What irritates me is this "in Synaptic". Linux Mint uses Updat...

Linux Mint 10 "Julia" passed the end of its supported life quite a few years ago. You should really not use it in 2018 at all, in particular not, if you intend to access the internet with it.
