You just have to jump in and do stuff. Using it as your primary OS or always for a particular task (e.g. always use it for internet browsing) is a good way to become familiar with a linux desktop environment.

As for the command, whenever you want to:

You might have better luck with physical converter from one of your dvi-i outputs down to VGA and then a converter for VGA to S-video.

Something like this to convert digital to analogue, and also something like this to get your TV output.

No idea about linux working with this seeing the TV resolution or anything at all really might have to manually set it. No driver ready fixes I could find. Good Luck though :)

Some devices of the same class work better than others. A N300 adapter should be able to max out at around 30MB per second, which is plenty and probably higher than your internet bandwidth. If you transfer large files on a local network an AC wifi adaptor might be better.
I don't know any good Linux compatible ones off hand, but this N300 one might have better range.

Anyways good luck.

I don't have any recommendations for wireless keyboards but I bought two of these these wired keyboards recently and I love them. The always-on backlight was more important for me than wireless. No issues with Mint compatibility and the eight macro keys are fantastic for quick, repetitive tasks. They're the kind of loud clicker type switches which I sort of like.

As for mice, I still use my old wired Logitech mouse with my primary Linux desktop... with one modification. I opened it and put lead fishing weights inside with hot glue to keep them from rattling around. I prefer heavier mice so the tension of the cable doesn't slide it around when you let go.

For various other systems where I need wireless, I got several of these mice. They have an odd power saving feature that shuts off the mouse after ten or fifteen minutes of use and turns it back on when you press a button. That was odd getting used to but it doesn't bother me. Compatibility seems to be great on all systems I have used them on.

I wouldn't bother with a machine that old, I've got many Dell Mini 9 netbooks and even with a fast SSD they are still absolutely painful with modern websites. This was the very first atom and it is a dog, and also 32-bit only.

You could get a vastly better machine for not much money. I found this Acer Chromebook when it was on sale for $250 and it runs Mint very well (& Win10, and CloudReady). It's got a speedy i3 cpu, a nice 1080p screen, great speakers, a really nice keyboard, a big touchpad, etc.

i had the same issue back when i was dual booting, no idea why. I blame it more on windows than mint though :D



try a different kernel. My broadcom is now fine and reliable in 4.4, but totally unreliable in 4.15


as for dongle, back when i was having issues i tried a load, a lot didnt work great. the one that did is a cheap dongle from plugable. and they have good linux support on their website as well. but this model was fine as soon as plugged it in.

If you really want to go light look at the ASUS Zenbook 305. I just got one and installed Linux on it with almost no issue. It was a little bit of work to get the wi-fi working during the install, but that's only because I was putting Debian on it and they don't include any non-free components on their standard install media so I had to figure out how to get it to load the binary firmware. A less stringent distro like Mint shouldn't even have that problem.

It's very lightweight, very thin, very powerful & has a beautiful screen.

I recently got this Monoprice tablet via Amazon ($40: to make lecture videos. It works really well on Mint 17.3 with at least Krita and Pinta. I would expect it to work with Gimp as well. I didn't have to install any special drivers - it just worked out of the box.

If you plug it in before starting Krita, it will do a nice job with the pressure-sensitivity.

I had a few issues with 3Com cards not working at gigabit speeds, so I bought an Intel PRO/1000 GT and it worked perfectly without any troubles.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding but if you don't use windows 10 why don't you just delete it? Here's a great deal: Samsung BAR Plus 64GB - 200MB/s USB 3.1 Flash Drive Champagne Silver (MUF-64BE3/AM)

This is the mouse i am using now..

But ACTUALLY!!! - i prefer to have a bluetooth mouse. to free up the usb port on my laptop.

So if you recommend a bluetooth mouse, i am open ears.

As a general starting point for linux in general, this is usually a good starting point, especially for the linux geek who might not have a structured education in Systems Administration. It also includes some tips that might be helpful should you wish to try to get a job in the area

u/mdbull75 · 1 pointr/linuxmint

If you want a book, Sobell's Linux series is good. I learned a lot about the command line from it.




u/AnotherMasterMind · 1 pointr/linuxmint

I recently got this off amazon and it works perfectly.

I have a decent realtek card in the machine and spent days researching how to make it work but it just wouldn't. But this Panda product was just plug in and instantly, wifi.

Thanks for your reply! So I'm looking at this model now, but when I try to use the "Hardware Devices" page on the Mint website it's difficult to tell what works and what doesn't:


Anyone using this with Mint 19? I did see that it does not have Nvidia for graphics.
