apt is a wrapper, it calls apt-mark internally, anyway. Same with sudo. So all of these are the same thing at the end of the day.
Well, I've learned something new. :)

Code: Select all

I suggest this slightly different command:

sudo apt-mark hold package_name

In the case of Pan:

Re: "Could not detect any configurable direct-rendering capable devices"

I don't know, but driconf might not work with the new modesetting driver. Earlier Mint versions used the Intel driver ( xserver-xorg-video-intel ) by default. That said: don't switch back to the old Intel driver! Performance is less, and there's not much -if any- maintenance on it anymore (it's prob...

I'd myself by the way advise the current 4.15 kernel on Mint 18.3.
Preferably not the current (known "bad apple" -24) but the latest but one (-23). :)

Re: Sudden strange behaviour: keyboard and suspend

Kernel -24 is indeed a "bad apple". Boot from the previous kernel (it's under the header "Advanced" in the Grub bootloader menu). Then launch Update Manager - panel: View - Linux kernels. Remove the -24.

Re: Cleaning /var/cache on Mint 19 Cinnamon

...to be on the safe side, only remove the packages under /var/cache/apt/archives/ Or just sudo apt-get autoremove && sudo apt-get autoclean && sudo apt-get clean ... That command is a bit drastic.... Less drastic, and therefore safer, is to use Synaptic: https://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtips...

The real problem with the Update Manager though is that its kernel update logic is bugged and that it updates you to a revoked kernel because of that.
Yes, how is that even technically possible? I thought Ubuntu had pulled the -24 kernel from the repo's. :shock:

Re: Create a separate partition for snapshots during Linux Mint installation ?

Good idea, yes. Give it a minimum of 10 GB, that should be enough for the (big!) primary snapshot plus a few extra. Do the partitioning beforehand, with GParted, after booting from the Mint DVD. Would Dupo really need a minimum of 10 GB for a 64 GB eMMC storage? From my limited experience with Time...

Re: Stuck in 'boxed' guest account

Did a recent install of Mint 19 Cinnamon, which I removed the Switch User option in the logoff dialogue box (to save resources on my 2006 Dell). Just for the record, removing that option from the menu does not save any resources. It's not what Pjotr's guide was saying, either. It only costs resourc...

Re: Update Manager

Run uname -r in a terminal. If it says 4.15.0 -24 then reboot, after the bios screen/logo press shift to get into GRUB boot menu, select advanced, select a lower version kernel (likely you only have 4.15.0-20). Assuming the boot now went fine, open Update Manager > View > Linux Kernels and remove t...
