Re: Can we talk about Mint 20.x's auto partition behaviour?

It has now been almost a year since Ubuntu 20.04 came out, from which Mint's install partition bug originated. The same thing happened to me trying to install LM 20 MATE. I chucked it after it froze on the Installation Type screen and others on this forum have talked about it not installing to the s...

LM 20 Not Installed on Selected Partition <NOT SOLVED>

I just installed LM 20 MATE. I selected install alongside Mint 19 for the installation. Instead of installing to the one available partition sda2, LM 20 created two partitions from that partition, created an extended partition sda4/sda5 and also a fat32 /boot/efi partition sda3. Why is that? I am ru...

Re: Lenovo Thinkpad T450 Installation Issues

SMG, Thanks for your reply. I liked 17.3 because it was probably LM's best work ever. I also liked LM 18 which I have on my T400 and T420 which are both running fine. On my newer T450 I have LM 19 running AOK. I thought it was perhaps a hardware or driver issue. I am unable to use LM 20.x because of...

Lenovo Thinkpad T450 Installation Issues <SOLVED-NOT FIXED>

I recently purchased a refurbished Lenovo Thinkpad T450. I have LM 19 MATE running on it without any serious issues. Out of curiosity I have unsuccessfully tried to install LM 17.3 MATE and LM 18.0 MATE on another partition. In both cases I can't get past the Installation Type screen. I get a disk e...

Re: Weather Applet not Working Again.

It is not Linux Mint but Aviation Weather who provides the weather information. The same thing happened last June when they updated their RHEL software. You just have to wait until they resolve the problem.

Re: Update Manager - Failed to Fetch Updates <SOLVED>

Update Manager is working OK again after not working for several days. This update blockage occurred with Linux Mint and Debian based distros but NOT with vanilla Ubuntu distros. I have no explanation for why this happened. Thanks for everyone's help.

Re: Update Manager - Failed to Fetch Updates

After doing some research on the web I was able to successfully post all the updates. There seems to be an ongoing APT cache problem from time to time with Linux Mint.

Xiphos Not Working Properly

Has anyone been able to get Xiphos running properly on LMDE 4 or Debian 10 Buster? The drop down menus don't work the way they should, making the application useless. For me it has only worked well on Ubuntu based distros. Thanks.
