Re: Who is still using Mint 18?

Using Mint 18.3 I know that it is supported until 2021 but at this point I wonder if we know in which month of 2021 the support ceases.

Re: Who is still using Mint 18?

Use Mint 18.3 Sylvia on a deskop PC and on a Laptop. It is very stable and never gets stuck. When I bought the laptop I installed version 19.1 but after the first update it had problems, so I installed 18.3 on my laptop and everything went well! I am very happy with this version and have suggested t...

After :
sudo chown me /media/me/Dati

Problem solved here too :)
THANKS !

Re: Help for choice Hardware suitable for Mint XFCE o MATE [SOLVED]

In the past I would have done this and even more .. now no, maybe it's old age :)
This XFCE version of Mint 18.3 goes so well that I don't want to make changes or tests, it's installed on Notebook and desktop PC, it's a Swiss watch.

Re: help for VLC update

I solved this by:
I removed VLC from the application manager.

Then I always reinstalled it from the application manager but choosing VLC (Flathub) instead of VLC.
By doing this, version 3.0.7.1 Vetinari is installed.
It seems to work well.

Re: Help for choice Hardware suitable for Mint XFCE o MATE [SOLVED]

At this point a little curiosity arises.
How much difference between XFCE and Cinnamon?
In the past I did some tests between Mate and XFCE but with Cannella never.
Would this notebook with Mint Cinnamon have been much slower or would the difference be negligible?

Re: Help for choice Hardware suitable for Mint XFCE o MATE [SOLVED]

Yes, I read this in Amazon reviews but I don't feel the need to open a new computer and spend money when it performs well. But I understand who buys an SSD, probably with a different operating system (Windows 10 or a heavier Linux distribution) it might be less responsive. I didn't do an accurate te...

Re: Help for choice Hardware suitable for Mint XFCE o MATE

Installation and customization completed. I made a clone of all the programs installed on my desktop PC and also of the aesthetic aspect. As I said before I am happy and the speed is faster than I was hoping for. Before installing I used the Endeless distribution for 5 or 10 minutes but it didn't ma...
