    How to upgrade to Linux Mint 18.2
    This article was posted on Mon, 03 Jul 2017 14:42:46 +0000

    It is now possible to upgrade Linux Mint 18 and 18.1 to version 18.2. If you’ve been waiting for this I’d like to thank you for your patience. Upgrading to 18.2 is relatively easy. In the Update Manager, click on the Refresh button to check for any new version of mintupdate and mint-upgrade-info. If there […] http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=3306

    What is funny is that I normally wait to upgrade.
    Mint is already behind on updates compared to other distros, but definitely one of the most stable. I've read its because they spend more time testing and waiting for bugs patches to roll out.
    So I wait even longer for stability and bug patches.
    I'm super patient.

    Me? I'm an update nut! I love watching Team Mint tend to my little garden.

    My entire setup has but one known bug.
    In Thunderbird I'm unable to delete messages.
    By selecting delete. I have to right click and send each on by hand to trash.

    Kinda trivial, but only some messages needed handling to get rid of.

    What happened was that in 18.0 Mint team came thought and I haven't had this happen since.
    With all the gear you've stashed away:

    Why not setup a drive to test new distros? Just copy your current set-up then update the test drive
    Some might consul just backing up before you update to be fail safe. But updating starts to lose it's thrill if you take to many precautions.

    I know you know all of this...I just haven't had a chancre day hello in a while. Hello Boo! ":O}

    I've had two bugs...
    1. Wine Virtual Desktop (Since 17.3) doesn't work when the Linux Desktop is the same resolution. It appears invisible
    2. Make a Link - No where to be seen in Mint 18.1 - Previously you could right click any executable or folder and select "Make a Link", for some reason they took it out. So now you have to use the Terminal
