Re: Hibernate in LM19

In Mint 19, hibernation has been disabled because of problems. Like Ubuntu did several years ago.

Hoe doe ik dat???
Start je computer op vanaf de -23. Die staat onder "Geavanceerde opties" in het opstartmenu van Grub.

Re: Wi-Fi not working in Mint 19

Try booting from the previous kernel. It's hidden under the "Advanced options" in the Grub bootloader menu.

Please generate an overview of your system like this: - Launch a terminal window (this is how to launch a terminal window) ; - make the terminal window full screen, to avoid chopped lines; - Copy/paste this command into the terminal: inxi -Fxz (if you type: the letter F is a capital letter) Press En...

Re: Start niet altijd volledig op (paars of zwart scherm)

Draait je moederbord al op het nieuwste BIOS? Kijk dat eens na op het ondersteuningsgedeelte van de webstek van de moederbordbakker. Indien nieuwer BIOS beschikbaar: installeer het.

Re: LM 19 Slow Boot Time due Update.

My point is that I see no use case for having that kernel checkbox in the first place. Find me one user who'd want to have kernel updates always selected but not level 4. It just makes no sense to me. Kernel updates are the potentially most dangerous updates out there, if you're ok with those alway...

Re: Mintbackup gives no list of installed programs

Well, personally I love clean slates when upgrading.... I already had the habit of only preserving ~/.mozilla , ~/.config/google-chrome and ~/.config/chromium , and also the habit of backing up my personal files on an external medium (as of course everybody should). So I saw that as a nice chance to...

Re: LM 19 Slow Boot Time due Update.

The level system of mintUpdate has its limitations, one of them indeed being that more packages should be marked as level 4. But even though imperfect, it's still a fine tool that has its use. It helps me, as experienced user, to *prevent* problems instead of curing them. And it's an enormous help f...

Re: Mintbackup gives no list of installed programs

I have one question though: I have seen several places, that keeping the dot files (setup files?) in my home directory can/will create problems. Is that true? What would be the way around that? They're user settings, and shouldn't give problems. However.... It's conceivable that user settings that ...

Forget Driver Manager; that's no useful tool for indicating manually installed drivers.

Re: Long Term Support

No need for hard feelings, surely? :shock:

I'm just sharing my practical experience, namely that especially the community-maintained Universe and Multiverse repo's in real life aren't as LTS as the company-maintained Main repo. Do with my information, what you want.... But why take it personal?

Re: Long Term Support -deciding when to upgrade

Hi, I tend to agree with Arbor I'm using Linux Mint 18.3 Xfce and I don't see any need to upgrade Thanks to Pjotr for his insight Before those three years are up, you can upgrade to a new Mint series (e.g. 19.x), because every two years a new Mint series is being released. The safest upgrade moment...

Re: LM 19 Slow Boot Time due Update.

It's what I do in Mint 19: all level 1-3 updates both visible and preselected, all level 4 updates (kernels and security updates included) only visible. Level 5 has ceased to exist. See:

Re: Why do icon themes change

I don't claim to understand the mindset of the dev team regarding icons. I'm amazed enough that all but 2 of the icon sets that come with Mint 19 have missing icons. Completely unnecessarily, too - you can define fallback sets in theme files that automatically get used for missing icons, it would b...
