Need any above 5.8.8 which is bugged by default - how to get newer ones?
Move to a different distro.
Unfortunately, I have to agree.

Re: Preparing for Mint to drop the KDE distro

Well, I think I have made my decision. I have been with Linux Mint for nearly 8 years, and when push comes to shove I would rather leave KDE than Mint. So for now I am happily using the MATE edition, which brings back fond memories of my first Mint desktop, Linux Mint 8 Gnome. :D

Re: On-Line banking

I've used Mint for my online banking for the past seven years and have never had an issue. In my opinion linux is the safest way to go. :wink:

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

I'd have to go along with Ubuntu Mate. Seems like the only inviting alternative to Mint.

No offense taken. I was just helping to illustrate the point that Cinnamon does appear to be "heavier".

Re: Cinnamon versus KDE

Yep, I was right. I just restored my Mint 18.3 KDE image and it's running @ 610MB :D

Re: Cinnamon versus KDE

Interesting. I just installed Cinnamon 18.3 today and system monitor shows 1.6GB out of 16. The KDE 18.3 I was running normally used 600 - 700 MB. I think tomorrow I'll switch back. :roll:

Re: [SOLVED] No Sound in Skype

Have you tried using the online Skype? Everything seems to work great for me, and you get the animated emoticons which don't work for me on the desktop version of skype. The online version is at https://web.skype.com/en/ and you just use your normal skype login info.

I personally prefer Clonezilla. Makes a perfect restorable backup image.

Re: Problems with Skype...

Very odd. I am using Mint 18.2 KDE and skype version is 4.3.0.37 and it works perfectly. I use it several times a day, both text and video chat.

Re: Replacement KDE distros... Feedback here!

I also plan to stay with Mint KDE through the lifetime of 18.3. Four more years is plenty of time to continue enjoying what I consider to be the best KDE distro.

Re: What other distros have you played with recently?

Recently gave Maui Linux a go to compare with Mint KDE. Maui devs do a pretty nice job. It's a nice and stable. But...so is Mint 18.1 KDE. Really no reason at all to use any other KDE distro than mint since Clem has made sure that we can run the latest plasma version with good stability.
