Re: Timeshift. Where can I keep the snapshot?

I recommend a separate partition on the same machine, internal drive. If it does what it is supposed to do It will take boot snapshots, that can't happen reliably on a USB. space is a concern. the snapshots are Huge. root partition is using 6.19 GB timeshift partition is using 10.37 GB https://previ...

Okay but why the prohblem does not appear under Debian9 then?
ingredients from the same warehouse, different cooks. some things just don't get properly mixed.

Re: Will mint run with 2 Xeon processors

I was looking at a local auction house for a replacement laptop and noticed that they are offering some servers with twin Xeon E5620 Quad Core processors and 24Gb Ram. I'm half considering purchasing one as my media server. Could I use it as a normal PC? Any tricks/traps for the unwary user? Yes. I...

Code: Select all

apt install mint-meta-mate
and then switch the desktop environment at the login screen (icon to the right of your user name).

True, clean install is best

However you are asking about Linux Mint so I am guessing you want the artwork and Mint goodies... but you can't have it both ways as Mint only builds...
