Finally I installed Linux (Mint 17) on my father's laptop, after years of Windows (98, XP, 7). I'm surprised how flawlessly the migration happened.
My father is a genuine computer malware, the worst virus ever, he makes happen the most weird stuff when he approaches a computer. But since he got Linux, he works without distraction. No more "Milos! What the f* is this now!?" :D

I did the same to all my family ( installed mint 17 cinnamon ) and zero problems of speed and virus,malware etc...

They bother me now maybe once, twice a year :)

(When they were using windows they needed my help minimum 4-5 times a month plus reformat their laptop or desktop 1-2 times a year).

Why is my Linux Mint 17.1 Cinnamon so slow?
Always while file operations (copying, moving, upload, download) the whole systems slows down. But CPU user is less than 10% and Ram use < 25% , so therer are enough resources! I have a new toshiba laptop, intel i5, 8 GB Ram. Is there anybody with the same problem? Any solutions?

Hello all. I have a problem and wanting to see if anyone else has had or is having this issue. I'm running Linux Mint Xfce 17.1 and my / partition is full. It's mounted on its own drive (a 65GB ssd). Due to it being full I can't even update the system as I'm getting the error of "no space left on drive". I checked / and /tmp and /var are not really that big in size as I thought maybe this would be where the space was getting eat up at. Yet in the /home folder there is a ~/.Private folder that is HUGE. Like its got almost all of the disk space on it. When I cd into it, it's full of encrypted files. What is this folder and what's the remedy to clear out some of this space? Thanks all

I think you should try to use the kernel 3.13.0-37 that is recommended and reinstall the graphic driver.
I use Mint Cinnamon 17.1 on my desktop
with a AMD APU A-10 6800k and I've tested some kernel versions. Cinnamon doesn't work with some combinations (graphic driver - kernel version).
I hope this helps.

If you want to see Gnome works at start, you need to install GDM and replace MDM using by mint.
 Maybe synaptic will be your friend in addition of any tutorials found.
 The other solution is, why not, to make a try with ubuntu gnome.
