Re: Old laptop advice

I would install the XFCE version.
Customized a little, it is as beautiful as Cinnamon. And it will be much faster than Cinnamon. :wink:

For sure not. Ubuntu, the base, will only be released in April. How could Mint be released at the same time?
It will come when it will be ready. Around June or July, I guess, based on the past.

You have installed a very famous toolkit for scientifics. It is used to find solution in equations. :lol:

Oh sorry I didn't understand the question correctly then. If you wish to setup the date and time globally, you should look in the control center or setting center.

Re: Date-Timpe format

In the applet settings, you have a place where you can define the style you want to use. It uses a standard notation.
You may want to play a little bit with it, but this should give you a good starting point: %A %e %B, %H:%M

Re: Problem connecting to a VPN

Unfortunately, Linux is not the root cause of your issues. Your country is blocking most of the VPN and most of the proxies. This is not easy to avoid.

Re: Problem connecting to a VPN

If it works as it should, there is no point in updating the kernel and the video drivers. Except for the love of destroying everything and spending time to fix it.

OP's question is about the VPN and the configuration, please stick to this subject.

That's a problem I guess. The file given to cpio doesn't exist.

LMDE3 will NOT use Buster. Asking again and again won't change the answer. LMDE is based on Debian Stable.

Re: mintUpdate pulling 4.9 kernel ??

When your Mint Update window is being full of new updates all of a sudden, you have to investigate carefully what you are going to install and not click blindly on the install button.
Especially if you realize that lot of these updates are from the backports. It can only be a problem.
