Re: Find out if a port is used by a specific application/process in the past.

Hi xenopeek,
Thank you very much. This is one of the main reasons why I stick to Linux Mint. The OS and the community both are awesome. No trolling, just helpful folks.

[Solved] Find out if a port is used by a specific application/process in the past.

Hi, Apologies if this question was asked earlier. I am looking for a command that will show me if a specific port was used by an application or a process, or if a specific port is designated for a particular application or a process but either the port is closed or the application is not currently u...

Re: Any thinkpad users here? I have a 2008 Thinkpad T500 and it still runs Linux Mint very well.

Hi,
ThinkPad T430 running the shiny new Linux Mint 18.3. Works like a charm.
Wiped off Windows a while ago. I had had enough of it.
Good to see fellow ThinkPad users here. :)

Re: I'm sick of FUD and misinformation regarding Linux Mint

Hi Pizzadude, Yes, I have come across similar opinions. I think Linux Mint is incorrectly thought of being a purely beginner's OS. Thing is, a lot of us need an OS that will be "ready to use" right out of the box, yet have enough power and freedom to let us tweak things the way we want. Linux Mint i...

Linux Mint 18.3 works perfect on my Thinkpad T430

Hi, After having had enough of the windows 10 travesty, I took the decision to wipe the disk clean, install Linux Mint 18.3. Everything works perfectly. Linux Mint has that perfect combination of "ready-to-use"ness yet gives me the freedom to install/compile whatever it is that I want (e.g. Vim 8 co...

Linux Mint Rafaela runs smoothly on my mom's Lenovo Ideapad

Hi, After doing an umpteenth upgrade of Windows 7 on my mom's laptop - A Lenovo Ideapad Z 570 (Intel 2nd Gen i5, 3 GB RAM, Integrated Intel Graphics + Optimus Graphics Card), the system became noticeably slower. So installed Linux Mint Rafaela XFCE (Dual Boot) and its been a great experience so far....

Re: Linux Mint 17 for general desktop and some linux fun.

Hi,

Thank you all very much for your replies.

As rightfully stated on many sites, people are nice and helpful here. That's not always the case for a few other Linux Forums I had visited. :P

Thank you once again.

Re: Linux Mint 17 for general desktop and some linux fun.

Hi Computer noob, Thanks for the reply. Trying out the cinnamon edition right now by running off of a USB. Feels darn neat. I do miss the Gnome Terminal though. The terminal shipped with Mint is good, but no drop down menus like gnome terminal. I think an apt-get install gnome-terminal or something ...

Linux Mint 17 for general desktop and some linux fun.

Hi, I've read reviews of Mint 17 and overall it seems to be a good OS. I've played around with a few linux flavours and planning to settle on one that will be mostly configured out of the box and something that my wife can use as well. Also planning to work on some scripting (bash, python, Perl most...

pppoe with Mint Linux 13.

Hi, I was planning to install Mint Linux 12, but work and some other stuff came up so couldn't try it. Now that Mint Linux 13 is out, I wanted to try it. Browsed through the forum and found that in earlier versions there were issues with pppoe connectivity. Do they still exist or is it as easy as ru...

Re: Mint 12 Battery life and question on Perl/Python

Hi Steve,

Thank you !!

I am really really bitten badly by Windows 7. Good to know that this version comes pre installed with Perl, Python and GCC.

My only worry is battery life. I tried Fedora 16 and its awesome, but it halves my battery life...So hoping Mint 12 will save me... :)

Mint 12 Battery life and question on Perl/Python

Hi, I want to use Mint 12 primarily to play around with a good stable Linux OS and with Perl and Python. Is Perl and Python pre installed in Mint 12? As in, can I just burn the ISO, install the OS and have these running out of the box or will I have to download and install them? Can someone guide me...
