Re: Manjaro overtakes Mint in Distrowatch page-hit rankings

In my opinion, the rolling release model is the future. "Debian Unstable (also known by its codename “Sid”) is not strictly a release, but rather a rolling development version of the Debian distribution containing the very latest packages. Debian Unstable is one of the 3 distributions that Debian p...

Re: Who no longer uses Windows?

I think the use of Windows and Linux also has its own privilege. The biggest disadvantage of Windows today is the update mechanism, unlike Linux.

Re: When did you come to Linux?

It is funny to me, how many of us followed similar trajectories with Linux RedHat (Mandrake)>SuSE>Debian (Ubuntu/Mint). Could it be that there is a theme here? Could it be that installing software via APT-Get prevents dependency h*ll and makes things much smoother? It was back in 2000 when i have s...

Can Manjaro Linux be a real challenger to Linux Mint?

Arch has simplicity , nowadays is trendy. Manjaro is based on Arch. It uses rolling release model, it is user friendly, has clean interface. I've noticed that after many years using Linux Mint, Manjaro Linux is now installed on multiple machines, the latter is much easier to use. Is Manjaro Linux a ...

Re: When did you come to Linux?

It was back in 2000 when i have seen first Linux. In my workplace at the time, a gateway machine was installed with Red Hat. Later came the Suse then Debian.

Re: Linux Mint 18.3 “Sylvia” Xfce released!

I found out that the upgrade policy changed. To avoid kernel updates, I need to close their selection in the update manager. Previously, this did not have to be done.

Re: Linux Mint 18.3 “Sylvia” Xfce released!

Now I'm not in front of the Linux machine. I think the 4.10.0-38 kernel is active. I do not want minor kernel update. My problem is still why does the update manager report a minor kernel update? Also, if this is the case, why is it not selected for installation?

Thanks. The manual backup is really a good idea.What size of linux partition should you use for this purpose?

Re: Timeshift snapshot size

Short answer: no. TimeShift needs to store at least all system files (not user data) once; every additional restore point needs some more space. I have here a test system with nothing added to the system, what did not came preinstalled. Having at now 9 restore points the restore file need about 9 G...

Re: Linux Mint 18.3 “Sylvia” Xfce released!

At the update level for average users in the update manager the recommended level 4 kernel updates did not appear, so far. Click on Edit > Preferences > Levels. Ensure that the level 4 updates are "visible". If they are visible and nothing is appearing in the update window, that means you already h...

Is it necessary to install the new kernel and this replaces the old one??

I'm not sure if you are asking how to update the kernel or...

Timeshift snapshot size

Anyone who has used Timeshift in 18.3 (Similar to Windows snapshot) would you be able to tell them how much is the size of a snapshot? Does it make sense to use this feature on older computers with smaller linux (<20 GB) partitions?

Linux Mint Romeo vs Ubuntu Proposed repository

Is the Linux Mint Romeo repository the same as the Ubuntu Proposed? In the days, a certain program has been added to the Ubuntu Xenial Proposed repository, but this is not included in the Linux Mint Serena Romeo repository.

Re: The difference between apt-get upgrade and MintUpdate.

I don't use VNC regularly, but I have tested it some time back successfully. Testing this - at first without SSH - is easy. The VNC-server vino is pre-installed, you still need a client-software. A very good client-software is Remmina (may be you do use it already for SSH?). You need the package re...

Re: The difference between apt-get upgrade and MintUpdate.

Level 4 & 5 updates do not necessarily break anything; in fact, in most cases they do not. In case it happens it may lead to the situation, where you have to install new. The fact, that this happens seldom is no solace, if it happens. You now know the risk; the decision is yours. Just an idea: Perh...
