Re: 18.3 Backup Tool Instructions?

Sadly my system is in a bad way unfortunately. I just tried to reboot and it just hung there doing nothing. I thought I'd give it some time so I took a shower and whatnot and probably a half hour later it was still hanging, not rebooting at all. Holding the power button on the laptop turned it off, ...

Re: 18.3 Backup Tool Instructions?

The system is okay from what I can tell so the TimeShift snapshot should be okay. I tried what you said to directly store the files on a external SSD but it came up with an error that the SSD wasn't in the correct format. Which is strange because its formatted in ext4. I even reformatted it and it s...

Re: 18.3 Backup Tool Instructions?

You can read the blog about it. Don't miss to read the comments also. Otherwise: I strongly recommend to use a flexible and reliable backup tool. My personal choice is Back in time. I had a look at Back in time and I also found a program called TimeShift, which I think is more what I'm after (as so...

18.3 Backup Tool Instructions?

Had a scare over the weekend. I did some updates and when my system rebooted I was met with a log-on screen instead of usually going straight to desktop. I'd log-on, password and I'd get another log-on screen with a different background picture. This would go on 2-3 times and then I'd get a black sc...

Re: When did you come to Linux?

I came to Linux, Linux Mint specifically in 2015 when Windows 10 was released. I'd heard of Linux as a friend had it installed on a small 7" inch screen in a PC mod back in the day. A small 7" inch screen built into the drive bays running Linux, I thought it was the most amazing thing I'd seen. Prob...

Re: Warning Kernel 4.15 and nvidia 390.25 drivers!!!

If you always have to have the newest kernel, which is neither usuallly necessary or recommeded in Mint, this sort of thing is going to happen. Coming from Windows I kind of find this aspect of Linux confusing. Why are these updates offered if they are neither necessary or recommended :? As of righ...

[SOLVED] What is khidpd_046db319 ?

Under "Process Name" in Conky I have the usual processes listed like cinnamon, xorg, ruby and so on. But there is a one called khidpd_046db319 and I can't find any information about this process. Anyone care to shed some light on what this might be :?

Oh my, that is very nice, thank you!
How cool is this theme! So glad for this thread that lead me to discover the matching icon set for it. Very happy with how my Mint is looking. Kudos to all! :D

Re: ATTN!...Intel CPU owners

Question: Skylake 6700HQ Intel CPU, when the new kernel with the fix is available, what happens if you don't upgrade? Is it feasibly possible that a casual user will be unaffected by this? or is this something everyone needs to upgrade because its serious?

Re: Cinnamon Themes

Nokto is for the dark theme. From your sceenshot "Window Borders" are set to "Bright" it should be "apdapta-nokto" from the list of Window Borders. Also if you want it complete like the author intended you need the icon set called: Paper Icon Set. You can get it here: https://snwh.org/paper/download...

Open the file manager and navigate to wherever you saved the zip file. Right click on it, then click Extract here. That will create a new folder called 'Insatia-4-1-linux-demo.' Double click the folder. Then double click the 'launch' file. Away you go! There are no instructions to install it, and a...
