Hi,
Maybe I missed something in the documentation, but how exactly do you upgrade Cinnamon from 19.0 to 19.1 beta?
I tried to ask this on https://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=3657#comments but unfortunately my post gets registered but not shown...
Thx.

Here is a way: viewtopic.php?f=42&t=282768 At your own risk, of course.

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

Thx for the quick reply! I'll give it a go in a Virtualbox VM first.

The beta isn't official yet. There isn't and won't be an official upgrade path to the beta other than a fresh install. Soneone has posted an unofficial 'uograde' path on the forum. I don't recommend following it unless you are confident if fixing issues that might result.

Once 19.1 stable is announced likely around the end of the month an upgrade should be offered via Update Manager.

This.

And to add an explanation for everybody's benefit: This is a beta test, not a sneak preview. Your bug reports are important. But only reports about bugs with the release. That's where a clean testing environment comes in. If you want to help with the beta testing, best use the .iso and test based on that.

Isn't it so that Asus motherboards are better performance wise.

I agree but they are EXTREMELY reliable!

I can't remember where I saw it, but I loaded up 19 on another drive, and did all the updates, and I'm sure I saw Mint 19.1 somewhere. Hmmm...got there and didn't even know it! :?

One thing I would suggest, create a partition a ~28G partition as /. Partition the rest as /Home.
When the system fails, reinstall and use the exact same username and all your 'stuff' comes back to you.

I've tested the 19.1 beta, we should be able to disable the new taskbar for a single application, otherwise the extra interaction cost of hovering the mouse, waiting and clicking the sub-instance is annoying for some applications like nemo where we do this very often, this is also a problem in windows. I've made a feature request in github for this, for all the people reading this that think the same than me, please post to show your support for this feature in this github post so maybe we can get the ball rolling:
