In case anyone is wondering what regressed is: verb
past tense: regressed; past participle: regressed return to a former or less developed state.

After having problems with VLC not working in Mint 19 and a few other problems I went back to Mint 18.3 By formatting the root partition but not the home partition, I was able to retain most all of my settings and Apps including some of the new ones like Red Shift, and Time Shift. VLC now works great. Guess I will have to wait awhile for the bugs in Mint 19 are fixed before installing on my production machine. Can't beat the stability of 18.3

I think your formatting is off a bit...

I haven't upgraded yet as LM has not given the OK to upgrade in place. I am in no hurry.

Smart Move. If I didn't have a couple of extra SSD's to play with, I would not have installed it at this time. I can do a Mint reinstall with all of my settings and programs in about 20 minutes. Other than a few programs and being a tad faster There really is no reason to switch to Mint 19 if your 18.3 is running good. I did do a clean install of mint 19, but it still had problems. The funny thing is when I installed Mint 18.3 over the Clean install of Mint 19 Everything works and I still have some of the things I liked in Mint 19, such as RedShift and TimeShift. I did not format the Home partition and did a dirty install. So far it is working great with no problems and I now have Mint 18.3 with a lot of the new features and updated files that were in Mint 19.

This prompted me to fire up VLC in Kubuntu 18.04, as I think it's the same version as in LM 19. But it's working fine, as far as I can tell. But all I'm doing is playing music from a flash drive. Seeing the words "bugs in Mint" kinda surprises me.

Yep the sound was fine, but the picture of the video was scrambled. What it was trying to do was show the privacy policy and the video at the same time. It is working fine in 18.3 sound and video. I tried it twice using fresh clean installs of 19 and had the same problem, but not in 18.3. Go figure.

But sometimes I need to be repressed from taking a hammer and beating the computer to pieces.

There have been a few forum posts about VLC niggles recently. I generally use mpv and don't recall ever having issues with it.

When LM 18 came out I had to stay with LM17 because the open source AMD driver did not work with my R7 360 graphics card. LM 17 allowed me to use the fglrx proprietary driver so at least I had a solution. By 18.1 AMD had this sorted out and everything is OK now. I don't anticipate any major issues going on to LM 19. But I won't do anything until the upgrade in place capability is there.
