If I could find the relevant post / thread / tutorial, I might feel inclined to post the like here as well. But for some reason I cannot. :oops:

That may be what you're referring to but it's for Mint 18.3, not 19.

Re: LM 19 and Kernels

I tried upgrading and downgrading the Kernel (and discovered UKUU at the same time, since these other Kernels don't show up in the Mint update manager). This helped, with both 4.14.133 (on my older desktop, which I assembled myself) and 4.17.15 (on my Dell XPS 13). Now, my solution may not be the m...

Re: Security concerns with STEAM

Or am I misunderstanding some basic concept and over-reacting? Possibly. If you did the install at the command line using sudo , it's highly likely that the previous use of your password was cached from a previous use of sudo . In this case, sudo doesn't ask for permission. There is a timeout perio...

Thanks all.
In a terminal:
sudo apt install htop

Start htop from within the terminal. Keep an eye on it as it might reveal the culprit.

Check your machine's BIOS for fast boot and disable it. Also start Windwoes and turn off fast startup then shut down completely before trying to install.

No response in the terminal, but it has just let me save something to Data.

Is that what was supposed to happen?
Yes. It should now be ok. I think you may have missed that step earlier.
