Hi,

I'm Francis. I'm from Germany. My english is not so good, so I'll do my best.

Thanks

Hi Francis! Welcome. I'm in the Netherlands, so you could say that we are neighbours. :)
From your other posting, I get the impression that you've used a different distro before... which one was it?

If your issue is solved, kindly indicate that by editing the first post in the topic, and adding [SOLVED] to the title. Thanks!

Welcome to the Mint family forums

The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place.

I am UK-based. Well retired and am now using leasure time to develop my computating skills (?) after a lifetime in electronics. Planning an exit from Windows 7 Prof. and with the intention to return to Linux. I ran a few versions of Ubuntu some years ago but finally gave up when a laptop went beserk. Now running a lenovo E535 laptop with enough space to instal one of the current Mints with a view to invest in a tower of a similar capacity (perhaps another lenovo machine) so that I have a belt & braces if one or other get indigestion.

I will follow useful topics here to assist when I inevitably get into a knot.

Welcome to Linux Mint, and the Mint forum. FYI, in the Language section at the bottom of the forum page is a German section, which may be helpful to you.

Grüß' Dich, Francis,

Du weißt offenbar noch nicht daß in Mint Forums auch ein deutschsprachiges Forum einbegriffen ist. (Board Index > Languages > Deutsch). Man braucht also nicht unbedingt hochbegabt in English zu sein um teilzunehmen!

Hello Fpooi5 and colintivy,

Welcoming new members here is a privilege in itself--because fresh perspectives
strengthen the entire group.

You will learn much just by following the topics here.
Light travels faster than sound.
That's why some people appear smart until you hear what they are saying.
