Honestly, it'll probably take me over an hour to figure this out on my own... if feeling generous, get me the first music that comes when you open this page http://www.adultswim.com/games/web/robot-unicorn-attack

Email it to me at gabriel.philips2000@gmail.com

Linux Mint 19.1 cinnamon does not work at all with this Mac Mini
It's the age of the machine that's the cause. You can't expect a modern OS to run on very old kit. Take a look at MX Linux or Antix.

Re: Mouting micro SD with Android mtpfs via USB

Anybody have any ideas? Any help at all would be appreciated. Thanks. Your phone works because the phone's operating system is doing the necessary translation from the file system to the mtp protocol. Your SD card doesn't work because there is nothing to do the translation. https://wiki.debian.org/...

In Linux you cannot assume the newer driver is better.
This statement is false. New nVidia driver releases contain updated definitions for what OpenGL two and three-dimensional objects are supposed to look like, for example.

I did a double-take reading the above. I would never use such appalling grammar as 'off of'. It turns out I didn't describe anything. I was quoting the linked page.

The other question is (asuming that the scrip is delaying the shutdown) how to detect a requesting shutdown signal and speed up the stop (probably hanging around in "sleep")
