    MORE INFORMATION ON TORRENTS
    Using a torrent or bittorrent client means that you will be downloading the Mint ISO file from other users around the world who are also using a torrent client: it's called a p2p, or peer-to-peer, connection. Once the download is complete, the torrent program will begin "seeding" the Mint ISO. In other words, it will make the Mint ISO file available to other torrent users, and can possibly use your Internet bandwidth to upload the Mind ISO file for other users.

    To stop sharing the Mint ISO file after the download is complete, either uninstall Deluge, or (1) Go into the Deluge program, (2) Right-click on the Mint ISO file name in the main Deluge window, (3) Left-click "Remove torrent", (4) Once the new window opens up, left-click "Remove torrent" again. Deluge will no longer take up your Internet bandwidth to share the ISO file. Good to go! :)

  • Beginner's Guide to Installing Linux Mint 19

    Please join the discussion at EzeeTalk. https://www.ezeelinux.com/talk/ It's free, secure and fun!
    HOW TO INSTALL LINUX MINT 19

    PREPARATION

    1. Create bootable DVD or USB media.

    * Download ISO image from https://linuxmint.com/
    * You can burn a bootable DVD in Windows 7 and up simply by inserting a blank DVD and then double clicking the ISO file.

    2. Boot Linux Mint 18.

    * You will have to turn off Secure Boot in your computer's BIOS setting to be able to boot from a DVD or USB drive.
    * Once you get Linux Mint 19 booted, take time to play around and ensure that all of you hardware is working properly.
    * Check to see if you will need any proprietary drives for your system.
    * Take some time to read through the Linux Mint User's Guide to familiarize your self with the system.

    3. Backup ALL Data You Wish To Keep!

    * Backups MUST be stored on a USB drive or other removable media.
    * It is OK to store backup data in a Zip file. Linux Mint can open them with Archive Manager.

    * It is a good idea to have another computer, smartphone or tablet available so you can have access to the Internet in case you need to look something up.
    * Turn off Secure Boot in your computer's BIOS settings.
    * Hook computer to the Internet with an Ethernet cable if drivers will be needed to use Wi-Fi.
    * Boot Linux Mint
    * Launch Linux Mint's installer and follow the directions.
    * Restart the computer. You are now Running Linux Mint!

    Follow the “First Steps” outlined in the Weclome Screen:
    * Setup Timeshift
    * Change to local mirrors
    * Install ALL updates!
    * Check for and install drivers.
    * Restart the computer.

    Tweaks:
    * Open GNOME Disks and enable Write Cache for all internal drives.
