So I'm still humming along & happy with my new 100% Linux Mint 18 machine but have come up against a small problem which led me to another, so I thought I'd post it here.
I think both questions are fairly easy and related, so I'm going to ask both in this post.
- When installing (or even looking for) new software, I'm guessing my first place to look is in the Software Manager, correct?
- And if it's not in there - or I can't find it - what is the default download I choose in Linux Mint 18: DEB or RPM?
These two questions came about as I was looking (and am looking) to download the Vivaldi browser from here.
When I first began setting up my machine and all it's preferences, in the Update Manger, I first selected, "Optimize stability and security" but after the 1st go round of updates, I realized, I don't know what the heck I'm doing, so I've gone back and selected, "Don't Break my Computer!" << A great setting for anyone new to Linux & a great idea on the creators of Linux Mint.
So now when I apply updates - I just did one now while I was writing this & everything is working fine, the downloads complete and install and I get the Update is complete message. All is well and fine until I select Refresh.
Every time I do that, I get this message:
Now, when I was setting things up, I was downloading (I think) all sorts of drivers for my Printer (Brother HL-L2380DW) and I think that is when this started.
- Is this an issue?
- And if not, how the heck do I get rid of this?
