Re: Just say NO to Mint19

Re: Hello :)

Hey everyone. :) It's no problem, I put some effort in finding tweaks to make things work right because I was so determined to leave my previous OS. lol Then as a bonus Valve dropped their Proton news and I was super stoked. I'm not sure if there's an official way to link this tutorial so I'm adding...

Cinnamon Tweaks Screen Tearing VSYNC NVIDIA

If you're new to Linux Mint and chose Cinnamon as your desktop these tweaks can help resolve some issues and hopefully provide a similar experience to your previous os. My PC has multiple cores, lots of ram, and it can run Skyrim on high settings. It's not ancient but not new at all. It's always bee...

I mean would't updating over https k...

Re: Updates via httpS

I was also hoping updates over https was possible. I block connections over port 80 and when I update I need to unblock it.

Hello :)

Hello, I'm a new Linux user. I recently left Windows permanently. I'm using the Cinnamon flavor of Linux Mint. :) When I first started using Linux Mint Cinnamon I overwhelmingly felt like I now owned my digital online life, like I owned my computer again. I experienced a brief moment where I got pre...
