Re: Linux Upgrading From 17.3 to 18

Great. Well done. :D Had been looking for the instruction to reset the sources manually in Clem's tutorial. But had failed to spot it. :oops: It is at the end of the section titled "D5. Download the package upgrades". Note also that this command points your system to the Linux Mint 18 repositories (...

Re: Linux Upgrading From 17.3 to 18

Hello, rahulthedev. You should have read Clem's step by step instruction more carefully. How to upgrade to Linux Mint 18 Then you would have known that "mintupgrade check" does not apply any permanent changes, but reverts any changes at the end. Now you will have to restore the original Mint 17.3 so...

Re: Mint 19 Cinnamon: Wine menus have disappeared

I assume the explanation is this, why installing Wine itself does no longer create the application submenu Wine, where Winecfg, Wine Explorer and Editor Notepad were offered: Menu items are not created for Wine's builtin programs (winecfg, etc.), and if you are upgrading from a distro package that h...

Re: System will not halt

Note: The file to look at on Mint is not /var/log/messages, but /var/log/syslog. On systems starting with Mint 18.x you can also use the commandline journalctl -b or journalctl -b number , where you replace "number" by -1, -2, -3 etc, depending on how many sessions you wish to go back. Default is 0...

Re: search box in synaptic

About apt-xapian-index being installed by default or not: Actually, the software package apt-xapian-index was last installed by default on Mint 17.x (Ubuntu 14.04) and was absent by default starting with Mint 18.x (Ubuntu 16.04). Hence it also defaults to being absent on Mint 19 (Ubuntu 18.04). Abo...

Re: Update hangs

Hi, samiel60. The final message which you posted Failed to lock /var/lib/apt/lists/lock tells that aptitude failed to lock the named file. This very likely means that another application had locked it a short time before. I would not be amazed if this other application was Linux Mint Update Manager,...

Re: Hardening against Spectre/Meltdown and compiling kernels

Hello, rene. If you inspect the Ubuntu kernel support graph , your will doubtlessly easily find out that Ubuntu does not use each and every kernel, which Linus Torvalds's team publishes. The kernel versions which are available on Ubuntu are they kernel versions which the Linux Mint Update Manager wi...

Re: Should I update to the new kernel 4.15.0-24?

Hello, linuxnewbie98. Considering how many users have reported the same kind of problems, after upgrading to kernel 4.15.0-24.26, and considering the fact that Ubuntu stopped rolling out K4.15.0-24.26 to Ubuntu 18.04 users more than a week ago, the answer to your question will be: No, please, do not...

Hello, rene. No such convention I'm afraid. Of the kernel series you name 4.4 is oldest and the kernel series that Mint 18 originally shipped with. The 4.5, 4.6 and 4.7 kernel series were then not selected by Ubuntu as series it supports for Ubuntu 16.04/Mint 18, meaning our next available series is...

Hello, linx255. What's the difference beetween 4.15 and 4.4? Kernel series 4.4.0 has been introduced by Ubuntu 16.04 (Mint 18.x) as the LTS kernel series, which will be supported for the complete 5 years, during which Ubuntu 16.04 will be supported.

Hallo, sg92+. Einerseits toll, dass unter Mint 18.3 Cinnamon das berichtete Problem nicht auftritt. :) Andererseits läßt einen die Geschichte etwas ratlos zurück, was das Problem unter Mint 18.3 Mate ausgelöst haben mag. Naja, man muß ja nicht jedes Rätsel lösen. Es gibt ja genügend davon. Grüße Karl
