Re: Install intel-microcode from Driver Manager?

I have Mint running on my MacMini with a Intel Core i5. After reading through the topics on this I decided to go ahead and update the Intel Microcode. After that I installed the Kernel Update that showed up in Update Manager, rebooted, and happy to say that everything is working fine. I'm always a l...

Re: My MacMini is loving the taste of Mint

Mint looks great on my Sony 65" UHD 4K TV Wait until you see it on a large screen. :D What do you do for sharing files between OSs? HaHa... A 75" would be awesome... I have an external 250GB usb drive that both OS's can use. But to be honest I haven't fully committed to Mint yet as I've only been u...

Re: Welcome Ladies - post here :)

Hi everyone. I'm Stephanie from Ontario Canada. I have to admit that I am a Mac Addict, but have come to love Mint. I had tried in vain to dual boot and single boot Mint on my old 2008 MacBook Pro, and while I got it working, something always happened to crash the system. I then turned to one of my ...

Re: System76 - MeerKat

I don't have any experience with the Meerkat but I do own an Oryx Pro. It works fantastic with any Linux distro I've tried on it. From everything I know System76 systems pretty much "just work" with Linux. If you do need any special drivers, they supply ppa's for you to get these so it's easy with ...

System76 - MeerKat

I've been looking at getting a MeerKat from System76. There's several build options you can order and I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with them and Mint.

Re: Mint on my MacBook and Mini

If the error messages worry you, try installing Mate instead. There is a mate-mega package in the software centre. If you like Mate, OK. If not, keep looking for the drivers. I'm surprised you're having a problem with a 10 year old laptop. Mind you, my 10yo macbookhas died, so your's is doing well....

It work great under MacOS and iOS, but when I try to connect to the router in Mint via Chromium or Firefox the web page doesn't come up, timing out with a message to check proxy...

Re: What would you use if Mint wasn't available?

I used Elementary for a while. It's nice looking but IMHO it's not as fast as Mint. I like Debian for messing around with and use Raspbian on my Raspberry Pi 3's. Didn't like Solus. I use Ubuntu-Mate on my Odroid XU4. So... Mint, Debian, Ubuntu.
