Re: No Upgrade Option in Edit Menu After Revert?

Have you checked the Update Manager for new updates ? Those 19.1 Mint Update updates should re-appear if you sucessfully reverted back to 19.

Re: can't find update

When you open the Update Manager there will be new headings somewhere in the menubar. Most likely the headings are related to upgrading from 19 to 19.1

Re: Why do I need to open terminal to give permission to a "EXECUTABLE"?

If you right-click a file, the pop-up context window will have a Permissions tab, where you can click a checkbox to make it executable.

Re: changed from ubuntu mate to mint 19

You should be able to see the partition(s) which have MATE in Cinnamon's File Manager program (Nemo).
You may have to right-click and choose "Mount drive" or similarly worded to access them.

Re: Mint updater does not find any update

I do not see any errors. (if there is in Spanish, please let me know.)
The only other thing I can think of, is to try a different main server from the Software Sources program.

Re: Remove all python and kill linux

Please remember . .
Most every Linux Mint application is programmed in Python. Many other applications in Linux are either programmed in or require Python as a dependency. (including system apps)

Re: LM 19 Cinnamon - Downgrading?

I suggest option number 2 . . go with either Xfce or MATE. Your x300 graphics may be too weak to handle the heavy 3D rendering required for Cinnamon.

Re: DVD Drive Issues

Looks like your hard drive is deteriorating and is failing! Time to back up all of your important data to an external disk or usb, before it fails completely. Time for a new hard drive.

Re: System or hardisk failure?

When you boot up the Live Mint disk/usb, open the Disks program, choose/click on your Hard Drive on the left, then click the little Gear icon button in the upper right, and choose "SMART Data and Self Tests". Let it complete the tests . .

Does it show any errors, bad sectors, or other anomalies ?
