Does the rsync address rsync://pub.linuxmint.com::pub from https://linuxmint.com/mirrors.php not work for you?

Re: Help Installing GTK+3.2230

There will be a new option in the menu of Update Manager for upgrading. It will become available shortly after final release of Linux Mint 19 and will be announced on the blog. As for the GTK sample programs, might you perhaps not have installed the development libraries like JosephM referred to? Li...

Re: Thunar menu icons and Gtk 3.22

Split and moved here as this is entirely unrelated to original topic, which was about getting started with Gtk development. Please in the future, don't hijack topics this way.

Re: System extensions aren't available in Inkscape installed through flatpack

AFAIK flatpak programs ship with their own libraries and can (if so built) use libraries from a shared flatpak runtime they depend on. They don't use libraries from your system. I'm not sure if or how you can then enable such extensions. The flathub build file for Inkscape doesn't give any clues (ht...

Re: 3 min boot with SSD

Sure. First consider how large your swap should be. If you want to be able to hibernate it should be at least equal to your system RAM so 4 GB. You could otherwise do less or more, depending on what you think you need. Then run this command to pre-allocate the swapfile space. Replace 4G with how lar...

Re: Help Installing GTK+3.2230

After the final release of Linux Mint 19 is out, an upgrade path will open in Update Manager for upgrading in place (expected in 3-4 weeks). It will be announced on https://blog.linuxmint.com/. That said, you don't need Gtk 3.22 to be able to program Gtk 3. Linux Mint 18.x come with Gtk 3.18 so you ...

Re: 3 min boot with SSD

It shows a delay waiting for your swap partition to become available. It's configured in your /etc/fstab file as such: # swap was on /dev/sda5 during installation UUID=1c270168-2a04-49ad-904c-87515cfab16b none swap sw 0 0 But in your partition overview that partition does not exist: sdb 55,9G disk └...

Re: Help Installing GTK+3.2230

This will break Linux Mint 17.x and 18.x. Linux Mint 19 comes with Gtk+ 3.22. So before you waste a lot of time, why do you want this Gtk version? On Linux Mint 18.3 you can use Flatpak to install newer version of Gnome programs, if that is what you want to ultimately use this for. Look to the progr...

Re: Programming with Python 3

The problem is you're using a variable file_name that's not defined before it's used. You should always be specific in what pyhton version you want. Use python2 for legacy Python 2. Use python3 for Python 3. Your file has a correct hashbang line #!/usr/bin/python3 so will be run by the Python 3 inte...

Re: Installing different version of GFORTRAN

Arguably the easiest route is to upgrade to Linux Mint 19 after it is releases as stable. Linux Mint 19 uses Ubuntu 18.04 as a package base and that has gfortran 7.3. Alternatively one might dare to use the unsupported and untrusted toolchain test builds PPA https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-toolchain-r...

Re: Ripping CD's : Format?

If you need to also be able to play the files on an iPod, you'll have to go with WAV. AFAIK the only lossless audio file formats that iPods support are WAV and Apple's proprietary ALAC. While FLAC is the superior lossless audio file format, it's not supported on iPods. Audio quality is the same betw...

It's being addressed in public on Microsoft's GitHub. It's not being swept under the rug now. We can follow actions taken on the issue and project in public.
