Celluloid

Post by wpshooter »

I was reading about Linux Mint 20 and the article said that Celluloid would
be installed on Linux Mint 20.

From my last experience with Celluloid, I did not care for it and uninstalled it
on my Mint 19.3. Use xreader instead.

So, if I go from Mint 19.3 to Mint 20 via update manager, will Celluloid be
installed even if I do not currently have the version for 19.3 installed ?

Thanks.
Mint 20 mate 64 bit.

I think you may have got things mixed up. xreader is a document reader and celluloid is a mpv player.

The upgrade route from 19.3 to 20 is very unlikely to be via Update manager - it's normally via the command line using mintupgrade - e.g see the instructions from 18.3 to 19 - https://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/2416

Assuming you mean you've got xplayer instead of celluloid this process would not normally change that.

I might sort of sound like a jerk here, but does this even really matter?

Celluloid uses like a megabyte of space. You can just leave it installed and you're not hurting anything. Just set the player you actually want to use as the default and pretend that Celluloid isn't there.

And if you're really worried that Celluloid will be re-installed by the upgrade all you need to do is open the terminal and type sudo apt purge celluloid. If the upgrade did re-install Celluloid, then it will be removed. If the upgrade did not re-install Celluloid, then you'll get a message saying that Celluloid is not installed.

That said, I don't think it will re-install Celluloid. Usually in the blog announcing the option to upgrade from a previous version, Clem will say which packages can be added to get all the latest software that the previous version did not have. So that implies that extra software packages are not installed.
