When the new build in the official repo ?
For 19.x: probably never. Mint (as Ubuntu) is a fixed release:

Should it overwrite the previous build ?
The PPA version (see my previous message) will do that, yes. Dunno about the .deb.

Re: Upgrade LibreOffice to build 6.2

Don't use the .deb or any other means. If you really need a newer LO than the one in the official repo's of Linux Mint, use the LibreOffice PPA: https://easylinuxtipsproject.blogspot.com/p/libre-office.html#ID8 (item 8 ) It's much better to use packages from this PPA for that purpose, than to use th...

Re: List of small random questions about linux mint

There are in Cinnamon at least two panel applets that should give you this feature. Right-click mouse on your desktop panel - Add applets to the panel - click Download - search for "timer". After downloading the applet you want, click Manage and add it to your panel.

Re: Linux 13 geen koppen, onzichtbare mail en meer

Allemachtig. Internetten met Mint 13, is bijna net zo onveilig als doorfietsen met Windows XP met internetverbinding. :shock: Maak vandaag nog tijd en zin voor een schone installatie van Mint 18.x of 19.x. Of breng die ouwe bak naar de milieustraat. Voor internetten is er geen redelijke derde optie.

Re: List of small random questions about linux mint

There are several options, depending on your desktop environment. In Cinnamon, there are at least two panel applets available that provide a timer for breaks. Please generate an overview of your system like this: - Launch a terminal window (this is how to launch a terminal window) ; - make the termi...

I believe the default installation also creates a swap partition.
It doesn't do that anymore in 19.x. :)

Re: Partitioning on single boot 500GB SSD with separate /home partition

Looks OK, but you don't need a swap partition anymore in Mint 19.x. It's a swap file now, residing in your root partition. With a dynamic size. Don't make the root partition as small as 24 GB; in your case there's clearly no need for that, and lack of space might become a problem in the future. In y...

Re: How to install downloaded programs Mint Cinnamon 19.1 tessa

First of all: why do you prefer Apache Open Office over the default Libre Office in Mint? Just more familiar with Open Office...... 8) As you perhaps know, they're closely related: LO was forked from OO a couple of years ago. Furthermore, LO has attracted much more developers than OO; as a conseque...

Re: Random Freeze - Linux Mint 19.1 Cinnamon 64 Bits

In this case: forget about the BIOS update. Much too risky if you can't be sure you'll apply the right update....

Only do step 2. That doesn't depend on a previous BIOS update.

Re: Random Freeze - Linux Mint 19.1 Cinnamon 64 Bits

Worth a try:

1. Check the support section of the website of your laptop maker, for a BIOS update. When available, install it.

2. Update Manager - panel: View - Linux kernels. Install the latest kernel from the 4.18 series. Then reboot.

Re: Design discussion on future Mint Update Manager

Your version of Update Manager shows the list of affected packages at the bottom of the description pane in small print already. I'm just thinking we should make it more prominent, and the fact that you overlooked it so far confirms me in that. :) Yes, the small print is far too easily overlooked....
