I would like to thank altair4 for persevering with me through my ignorance on samba. I now have what is for me two perfectly working laptops using 17.3 Cinnamon and I could not be more ecstatic. I am slowly migrating all my files from OneDrive at which time I will be completely free of Microsoft.

Thank you altair4 very much. :D

May I echo thanks to Clem and his team for providing us with a sane alternative to that mind boggling monstrosity that we call MS Windows. I try to help out my wife's friends with problems they have with their Windoze systems and it's such a relief to come back to the sanity of Mint afterwards! I do also try to show them how much their lives would be simplified if they too would take the Linux plunge, but honestly, it's like talking to a brick wall with most of them! :cry:

Just wait until that brick wall called Microsoft Windows Subscription Payments falls on them. Just make sure you're standing close by with a laptop that has Linux Mint on it to show them the light at the end of the tunnel.

Thank You MtnDewManiac (MDM)

About 3 weeks ago he/she helped me with a problem I had with Dropbox in Xfce.

I made some silly, rude remarks about the fix being a 'hassle' and how it's easier to just use other distros where dropbox worked. MDM could have left it at that or been rude right back but they weren't,
instead they said "Well... If you actually like Cinnamon, MATE, or a fork of KDE3 better than Xfce, then that makes sense."

The more I thought about that the more I knew I really, really liked Xfce better and I kept at it ..... Xfce now my DE of choice.

Thank you for your encouraging words MDM

+1
Gratitude is often felt but less often spoken.
I appreciate each member of this forum that voluntarily helps others.
I deeply appreciate Clem as our Mint founder, the devs, as well as the entire team of contributors
who, by their expertise and commitment, have released me from prison.
I appreciate the forum admins & mods.
Appreciation even goes to Fred for starting this discussion.
There is so much here for which we should be thankful.
That's how I feel about it.

Yes, THANK YOU ALL. Over and over again. Without you, no one would be able to deal with learning how to use Linux. I started looking at Linux in the early 90's, the Slackware days, and had so much trouble with hardware I backed away. Then I made several other attempts, but was always discouraged by the attitudes of what I have come to call "Leet Haxors".
But at last, here on the Mint forums, I've found people who actually want to help.
It's wonderful!!!!! :D :D :D

I'd like to add a very sincere "Thank You" to Cosmo for the help with upgrading kernels. Though it makes me nervous doing anything so serious to my computer, your assurance that all would be okay encouraged me to carry it forth. I'm now using the 4.4.0-45-generic x86_64 kernel with apparently no issues.

Namaste

I'm constantly amazed and impressed by the amount of time, effort and care that community members devote to helping others on the forum. Fred Barclay's original post urging us to recognise and thank those who have helped us is a thoughtful, if modest, way of showing our appreciation.

I have already posted in this thread about the useful advice I got from austin.texas and others about dual/multi booting different Linux distros.

This time I want to thank JeremyB and hrmcrm (Howard) for helping with - and indeed solving - a problem I had with making Bluetooth work on my Linux Mint 17.3 XFCE system (the thread is in the Hardware Support forum). Their advice was well-focused and their knowledge impressive. I'm grateful to them both.

Thanks to phil995511 for the

Code: Select all

 init 0 
turn-off-your-mint-MATE-device smackdown that fixed the turn-off-everything-but-the-FAN: viewtopic.php?f=90&t=236606

Thanks to fabien85 for sorting out UEFI boot order issue that made GRUB available without having to go through Boot Options every startup. Made me look at a place I already looked (overlooked submenu in BIOS) - and would have probably never found it otherwise. Constant PITA, gone. By the way, the topic was about how disabling Secure Boot did not seem to be necessary and was just going on about how happy I was with being able to use LinuxMint-MATE, even though there was confusion regarding boot up. Answer was prompted by fabien85 initiative only so I changed the topic to mention GRUB.

JeremyB helped with wi-fi without reloading drivers and programming this and that like I expected; providing a totally unexpected sniper shot precision to a problem that could have gone anywhere. AND following up to make sure it stays that way - 8) viewtopic.php?f=150&t=227392&start=20

Somebody who really should be thanked here is the person who, almost on a daily basis, helps people with problems concerning network shares, samba and what not: altair4. He wrote tutorials about the subject, helps people here explaining the subject over and over.

So altair4, Thank you so very much.
