Re: Running Mint from a USB stick

Anyway in my VM install of Mint there is no option to do an install somewhere else Yes, there is. But for that option to work, first you must make settings to the VM when it's turned off - attach the USB stick to the real machine and in settings you have to add the flash drive as a storage device, ...

Re: Steam client prevents screen timeout

Sounds like a bug in Steam related to your distro (Mint 19, right?). I have no problems whatsoever with putting the computer to sleep and the screen turns itself off when 15 minutes expire. If you do a Google search for "linux steam client prevents sleep", you'll see you're not the only on...

Re: Running Mint from a USB stick

I'm not really sure how your proposed installation setup would differ in practice or in effect from booting to the Mint "live" environment and running the installer process from that. It would differ because if you run the live env. from the real machine, the installer will detect the sto...

Re: Running Mint from a USB stick

Setting aside those specific questions just momentarily, the first issue to be aware of would be the Ubuntu installer bug that can arise when installing Mint to a USB stick. Its has potentially destructive results for the existing boot setup on the machine where that process is carried out. Dependi...

Re: Firefox upgrade?

If your source is still showing FF 50, then you must have messed up sources cuz my sources show FF 65 as the latest version and I'm not even using the latest Mint. :roll:

Are there any limits about how many programs autostart can run?

Are there any limits about how many programs autostart can run in principle? I downloaded an appimage of a program called ScreenCloud and set it up to start with the system but it won't. So I built it from source - still won't run. I followed its developer's advice to edit the '.desktop' file for th...

hostname is "rado-mint18" but in hosts file 127.0.1.1 was "mint18 mint18", so I changed it to "rado-mint18"
It seems that this solved the problem, so thanks to everyone who responded in the topic. :)

The number after the point in Mint versions

Does anyone know what the number after the point in Mint versions mean (.1, .2, .3)? Does it mean that it was released in the 3rd quarter of the year or is it something else?

The size of these buttons depends on the font size. Look how big are mine, altough I did it not for the buttons size but because I wanted large titles in the title bar:

Re: sudo unable to resolve host

And I take it your hostname (the bit after @ in a command prompt) is "rado-mint18"? Seems likely that rado-mint18 is not named in /etc/hosts. The OOTB behaviour is to have your hostname resolve to 127.0.1.1 on Ubuntu/Mint. I.e., you'd in /etc/hosts have a line 127.0.1.1 rado-mint18 If you...

Re: How to get a Debian repo key?

Flameshot is available for installation in your Software Manager in the main menu. There is no need to go to the Debian repository. You already have another Screenshot program installed by default. Nope, it's not. Typing flameshot in the software manager returns nothing: https://i.postimg.cc/Z5gTNK...

There's a program I wanna get for Mint 18 but it's available only in the Debian repo. It also has too many dependencies for me to download manually, so I was hoping to get it via the command "sudo apt-get install flameshot". I tried adding the repo to my software sources but it displays a ...

I'm going to install Mint on my sister's computer but she's not tech savvy and has no idea what to do when the update manager displays available updates. But I can't find a way to make the system automatically update security packages and level 1 and 2 in general.
