Installed 19 cinnamon last night and so far works pretty good. wine not working and gdebi not working unless you start it in a terminal with sudo gksudo no longer works in 19.
other than that everything is fast and looks good.
Is it faster than 18.3? Not only booting but operation also.
Seems faster to launch programs, but had done no real testing of actual speeds so it may just be perception.
some have said boot times are slower but can't see that here.

It took more than 4 hours to download the iso. Is that normal or am I just slow?

That can depend on several factors. The server distance, its connection speed, your connection speed.
IF AND WHEN your problem has been solved, please edit your original post and add [SOLVED] to the beginning of the Subject Line. It helps other members.

Can confirm that GDebi has now been updated and fixed in cinnamon.

Like I said before, "I downloaded the torrent this time in exactly 8 1/2 minutes and then made a bootable usb drive while I checked the sha256 which was fine. The entire process took only eleven minutes." :D

Running the xfce version. As of this afternoon, most of the problems have been fixed including gdebi. From the beginning though, 19 has booted and shutdown faster than 18.3, but not as fast as 17. Usb drives mount faster than in 18, but not as fast as 17. As far as general running goes, it seems to run a bit faster than either 18.3 or 17. I rather like it!
I've tested it on core2 duo, i5 2nd gen (sandybridge), and i5 3rd gen (ivybridge). All thinkpad laptops. All intel graphics. I've not found anything that the 4.15 kernel doesn't like on this array of hardware.

Connecting to Windows shares does not work from Nemo. Works fine with the same shares and 18.3 and also with the same version of Nemo on Manzaro/Cinnamon.

Thanks for the great release,

Gave the XFCE version a whirl (in a VirtualBox running on top of 18.3). Neat. Like it. Some Icons need getting used to, but hey.

One thing however: in TimeShift, the users' homes are excluded - so far, so good. But then wouldn't it make sense to exclude other files by default as well, namely /swapfile? It simply doesn't make sense to backup a swap file, and the average newbie probably isn't aware of that, but will happily backup $MEMSIZE+ bytes for no good reason. (not a bug, but a silly feature...) :-)

I have no problems with my windows shares. Everything runs smoothly - mount, read, write ... All from Nemo.

Can you post the exclude file in a new thread and link from here. My notes on Timeshift files are here: https://petermoulding.com/timeshift

Same thing here, but there are many themes in the theme folder. Don't know why they don't show up in "system settings/themes"?

After some investigation, it looks like I am having problems only with DFS shares. Using the windows share server name works ok.

Basically you run "swapon --show" and exclude everything that has a type of "file", eg.

Code: Select all

swapon --show | tr -s " " | grep " file " | cut -d " " -f 1
