Re: How to install with manual partitioning

So any software installed goes to root, right? Anything I see which isn't under users is root? I don't know. For instance MATLAB and Python (with packages) can take 15 GB easily. Add few browser, MINT itself, etc and 30 isn't enough. Well, if you knew that and intended to install those packages, wh...

Re: How to install with manual partitioning

When I install applications using the software manager will they be installed in root or in home? If in root, do you think 30 GB are enough? First, it's best to create a new thread when you have a question. Second, 30GB is generally plenty of space. So any software installed goes to root, right? An...

Re: Flatpak - improvement requests for Mint Software Manager

Totally support this.
We need better searching options in Software Manager.

I'd also take care of the Flatpak update process (Of Flatpak applications).
Now it is done behind the scene with no user interaction.

I would like to see it integrated in Update Manager.

Re: Linux Mint 19 codenamed “Tara”

Could we expect the resources needed to run Linux Mint 19.x are comparable or less than Linux Mint 18.x (I'm talking about Cinnamon)? I really want my system to stay lean. That's the main reason I moved to Linux Mint. Roughly identical, I suspect. Note that any "system load increase" has usually mo...

Re: How to install Flatpak applications

What about updating the Flatpak application itself?

It seems Linux Mint 18.3 uses Flatpak 0.10.
While they released 0.11.4.

Why Linux Mint won't update?

Re: flatpaks

I have few questions regarding Flatpak: 1. Is there a way to stop Auto Update? 2. Is there a way to see which Flatpaks have updates (Without actually updating, just to see what's out of date)? 3. Is there a way to update manually just single application? 4. I installed Visual Studio Code from Flatpa...

Is there a way to control the updates manually?

Is there a mode which just ask for confirmation before updati...

Disadvantages -

1) automatic silent updates - could introduce regressions / bugs to the application itself. Could be an issue if you are on metered bandwidth.

I couldn't find in the thread - Where is the Start Menu shortcut file for Flatpak applications?

I installed Visual Studio Code and I have it in Linux Mint (Cinnamon, 18.3) Start Menu yet I can't find the launcher (The .desktop file).

Re: Rollback to Linux Kernel & Linux Firmware Prior to MeltDown & Spectre Fix

No, You're wrong.

Just like I feel the difference between Haswell and Coffee Lake which is ~10% I can feel those.
Yet indeed 10% becomes noticeable only when doing long tasks (More than few seconds).
I tend to do those hence I can feel the difference.

Did you notice a performance reduction, or is it only from reading (the starting post sounds so)? Have a look on Anandtech's review: https://www.anandtech.com/show/12566 It does have real world effect. So your answer seems to be 'no, I did not personally notice a performance reduction'? Is that cor...
