Re: Installing LM19 Tara and retaining users from LM18.3 /home

Hello, minty19user. By installing Mint 19 over Mint 18.3, you have deleted any user account information of the Mint 18.3 users. The reason is simple: The user credentials and some more details are stored in the files /etc/passwd, /etc/shadow, /etc/group and /etc/gshadow. The installer created these ...

Re: a strange artifact in firefox searches, "client=firefox-b"

Hello, lehnerus2000. I really question that the suffixed string "client=firefox-b" is an issue at all. It is not caused by the Google search plugin. It is something done by Firefox itself, as far as I can find out. Firefox 63.0.3 on Mint e.g.: Depending on which search engine is used, Firefox will a...

Re: Linux Mint MATE Crashes on 4GB RAM

Hi, p.g. I will install Linux Mint. Please wait. I had not been aware that you had already uninstalled it again. Because as soon as you have eliminated a system, there is no more way of finding out what goes wrong on the eliminated system. Actually, I do not see anything in your inxi report which st...

Re: Slow boot - Kernel (not userspace)

Hi, ahlexcendre. For that slow and old machine, your boot time is respectable. I would agree in case the times for kernel and userspace were swapped: alexandre@alexandre-Aspire-5736Z:~$ sudo systemd-analyze [sudo] password for alexandre: Startup finished in 40.304s (kernel) + 6.565s (userspace) = 46...
