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 M

  4. Linux Mint is Still Number One First a little bit of history about me and Linux. When I First Started With Linux It was in the Early 90’s around 1991 or 1992 as I recall.

I used the commercial Versions of Suse from Version 5.2 or 5.3 until version 10.1. During that Time I also Used Mandrake which later became Mandriva. About that time I started using Ubuntu wh
  5. Well I had quite an exciting Easter weekend linux wise.If you caught up with my E2B thread you will know that I was looking for a distro to install on a usb for a friends laptop. Now this needed to have persistence as my friend is going to use the os as a replacement for XP but is not ready to jump ship straight away.

They seem to break to easy when updating or upgrading. I have had problems in the past with Linux Mint DE I have to say this one went pretty smooth although on first boot I got a blank screen after hard drive install. Thanks to Sunrat I knew what to do.
