Re: Import spreadsheet

Libreoffice Calc supports .xls format. You should be able to open it directly from Calc.

Re: HP Laptop/E2-1800 no hdmi sound

You may have to install the fglrx drivers in order for HDMI to work properly. I'm not sure how you tried installing them but you could try this tutorial here and report back with any problems -> http://askubuntu.com/questions/124292/what-is-the-correct-way-to-install-ati-catalyst-video-drivers-fglrx...

Re: Cinnamon won't load, defaults to Gnome

I'm not familiar with the MDM Login Manager, but when you log in there should be some sort of box or button you can click to choose what desktop environment to load.

This thread is for a previous edition of LInux Mint, it also seems unrelated enough that you should start your own Topic.

Re: Reasoning Behind Gentoo and Arch

Here's a link to the 'philosophy' of arch linux. https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/The_Arch_Way
Maybe that will answer some of your questions.

Those who like to take the "hands on" approach to their distro will gravitate toward distro's like arch linux or gentoo.

Re: Where is the real kernel?

I spoke with the Linux Mint dev's and the "linux" package has been added to /usr/lib/linuxmint/mintUpdate/rules to be shown as a level 5 update. This behaviour should no longer occur in the future.

Should be an update to version mintupdate 4.3.3

Re: Where is the real kernel?

It's looking like the "linux" package should be pinned as a level 5 update, but was not included in /usr/lib/linuxmint/mintUpdate/rules , for whatever reason. I will contact the dev's about this and see what can be done.

Thank you for your patience.

Re: Where is the real kernel?

One last question, have you added any third-party repositories? Perhaps one is interfering.

I'm also told the "linux" package should not be installed by default.

Re: Where is the real kernel?

Okay, if you're absolutely sure that level 4 and 5 updates are not checked as "visible" and not checked as "safe" (you should not see any level 4 or 5 updates in mintupdate at all), and you STILL are getting a prompt after refreshing the package list, that you need to update the ...

Re: Where is the real kernel?

Please un-check level 4 and 5 updates from visible so only level 1, 2, and 3 are checked. Refresh and update.
Do you still get the option to upgrade the "linux" package? if so, with the additional level 5 update?
