    HA! I finally figured out why any Linux Distro, I tried installing, did NOT recognize Windows 10! Turns out I had to adjust some settings in my Bios: (Sata Mode Selection = AHCI) (Boot Mode Select = UEFI with CSM) (Secure Boot = Disabled). Just because I post comments asking for help, DON'T THINK FOR A MINUTE THAT I'M ACTUALLY SITTING ON MY ASS WAITING FOR AN ANSWER! Well I am waiting for an answer BUT in the meanwhile, I'm still attempting to figure it out on my own! Figuring things out for myself is the best feeling in the world especially since I'm not an advanced Techie! Well not yet, at least! lol ^_^

    Glad I found this video. I'm using Linux Mint 19 right now via a USB drive. Still haven't decided to install it alongside Windows 10. One reason is, I tried to install Zorin 12.4 Core and it did not recognize my Windows 10 OS stating, "No other operating systems have been detected on this machine." , and gave me an only option to format my drive and install Zorin. I DID NOT by the way! lol. I like the feel of Linux and want to learn as much about it as possible but I do not want to get rid of Windows 10 for gaming purposes and video editing software and uploading to Twitch and maybe YouTube again. SO HERE ARE 6 QUESTIONS I HOPE CAN BE ADDRESSED. ^_^

    1. Do I need to partition my C: Drive first with the required amount of hard drive space to successfully install Linux. Linux usually states 4.5 GB of hard drive space is needed but I plan on allocating around 20GB seeing as I have 72GB of free space. Any advice on how much space to allocate is appreciated.

    2. I am using my Samsung TV with HDMI. What setting do I need to look for to switch between monitors?

    3. How come Linux Mint 19 isn't recognizing my two SSD Drives but recognizes my detachable drives? Is it because I haven't installed Linux fully?

    4. How effective is WINE at running Windows 10 apps? I have an MSI GT80s gaming laptop and software such as Dragon Gaming Center, Silent Option fan control, MSI Afterburner and RivaTuner are important decision makers when switching bteween OS'es.

    5. Will Linux be compatible with Nvidia graphic drivers? I will have to do some research to find out if Nvidia makes compatible graphic drivers for Linux.

    6. If WINE works acceptably well with Windows 10 software, will I need to keep starting WINE each time or is there some sort of auto load function? That would be great! THANKS FOR ANY AND ALL ASSISTANCE! ^_^

    You should work on your pronounciation. You talk basicly in a single tone. The word 'with' is not pronounced as 'wizz'. The word 'the' is not pronounced as 'zhe'.

    As much as a backup application is nice, I recommend just getting an external USB hard drive that is twice as large as your computer hard drive. Then just drag and drop your home folder to the USB drive. Who cares if it takes all day. Just start the process before you go to bed and when you wake up, it should be finished. The advantage is that you don't have to use a backup application that may no longer be installed or even available in the future. Plus, the files don't need to be restored; they are fully functional and usable. If you're really into it, you can create a script that will not copy any file that is unchanged. And that's the advantage; it's a file copy not a backup compression tool.

    One more problem I am facing that is about the battery issue. Battery percentage is stacking sometimes. While using the laptop plugged in situation battery is stopping to charge. Takes too long to charge while plugged in and working. For the 96%-100% it is showing 40 minutes remaining. I installed tpl also.I think the proble is coming from the graphic card.i am using amd radeon r4 graphic card with 500mb.

    I always liked linux and I use it quite a lot but I dont know which distro to use. I started with ubuntu then went to linux mint then to debian then to manjaro and at one point even arch and FreeBSD. So which is the best overall. I mean I want to use all of them but I cant multiboot 10 distros. (I am quite experienced with linux and can work my way through a terminal)

    Linux would be great, if it supported more 3rd party apps and software.
    I was all excited in anticipation of shaking off Windows in favour of Linux Mint, as it would be a totally new and fresh experience for me. But when I finally got it set up, and running, I was left feeling somewhat deflated and underwhelmed to say the least.
    The limited amount of apps and software that it does support, makes Linux a really boring OS, imo, and not fun to use at all. Yes, it may be more stable, and less laggy than Windows can be, but that alone wasn't enough to convert me, I'm afraid. So sadly, I have returned to Windows. And I just feel right at home in the Windows environment.
    So Linux, you came close to converting me, but no cigar on this occasion, sorry.

    If Nemo file manager was able to split so you can look at two different folders like in kde then it would be the best

    I was ready to upgrade my laptop from Linux Mint 18 to Linux Mint 19. But then the consensus seems to be "clean install over in place upgrade". I figured if I was going to do a clean install then I might as well try some other distros before coming back to Linux Mint 19. I eventually tried Pop!_OS and stayed with it.

    I switched to mint after Ubuntu switched to Unity can't believe it's been that many years ago in 2010/2011 how time flies. Have been a Cinnamon user since (with a short period on Gnome which didn't last). I have yet to find a Distro that trumps it and i have tried quite a number over the years. In the process of downloading the latest distro release to upgrade and it looks beautiful.

    I tried mint 19 and my dymo printers quit on me. They work fine on 18.3 even my dymo 4xl. Tried installing dymo drivers and they refuse to install correctly. So I'm back to mint 18.3 for now.

    You can still have KDE desktop if you upgrade from Linux Mint 18/18.2/18.3 KDE and it works quite well. I use Linux Mint 19 KDE on my main PC and I got from editing the sources.lst file.

    I just finished installing Linux Mint 19 with the XFCE desktop. From my experience, there are a few flaws I encountered, but was able to fix along the way. First off, the DSL/PPPOE on the network connection is missing the Ethernet tab which should contain the Device MAC address. Without it, the system will not recognize it as an existing device connection. I was able to get an internet connection going by using the pppoeconf pkg in the command line. A word of advice and that is to do an apt-mark hold on pppoeconf and stick with the 1.21 version. The newer version that the Update Manager detects and wants to install will break your internet connections and you will wind-up having to uninstall and reinstall it again to get it working. Also the newest hplip version 3.18.6 is incompatible with the python version that comes with Linux Mint 19. I was able to also get around that by using version 3.17.10. I still love using it, but it still needs to be refined and I'm sure with later releases, these issues should be fixed.

    Does anyone know why is not possible to input Chinese or Japanese characters, using ibus-pinyin and ibus-anthy, in Firefox, Opera, Libre Office, text editor…? I can only type those in the WPS suite, but don't know which step is missing for it to work on the other programs. So I have to write on the WPS, copy and paste…so annoying. 谢谢.

    I have Linux Mint 19 and I installed it a day ago on a smaller 120Gb SSD, I wanted to update before I took my first Timeshift so I could restore back to a updated version, but after the update of the latest kernel Linux Mint could not boot up.

    So I had to reinstall and add a second SSD to save the Timeshift in, after the installation I made a Timeshift and updated and all went fine, then I made a new Timeshift and updated the kernel and as before I could not reboot.

    This gave me a bit of a panik the first time for I could not reach the OS and I thought I had to reinstall everything again, but then I just booted up from the USB and started the Time shift from there and I could restore system.

    The moral of the story; always have the installation USB/CD near you when using Linux and save work on a USB-disk or a NAS that can be read by Windows.

    KDE is so buggy that's why they remove it from mint 19.
