Both installation and user guides in HTML, PDF, and EPUB formats?

Post by Spice » Sat Apr 07, 2018 9:41 am

Let's consider only the English Installation Guide and the English User Guide for Cinnamon Edition Version 18: https://www.linuxmint.com/documentation.php

First, let's take the Installation Guide: https://linuxmint-installation-guide.re ... en/latest/
It's a nicely rendered HTML installation manual, but I can't see how it converts to EPUB or god forbid, PDF with a single click, as the description claims.

On the other hand, the User Guide is available as a PDF only, but it would be so much more enjoyable to read it as an HTML or EPUB document. I mean, am I supposed to read the PDF on my laptop's screen like an animal ;), or am I supposed to print it to kill trees in the process? You see, this is an issue. Thanks for considering!

Go to the web page, at the bottom left, click on "latest", In the roll-up menu choose the format for your download:

I suppose that's one of the ironies of life, doing the wrong thing at the right moment -C.C.
