    Yes, Capt., it is going to be supported. I was just on the Linux Mint Forums and the beta version of 19 has been released for XFCE, Mate and Cinnamon. They were released this past Sunday. They also have a 32 bit version. No indication when the LTS versions will be released.

    I think it is only the KDE version that they are eliminating.

    Cheers

    Geez, I dunno ... bloke gets a good night's sleep, comes into the Office with his hand firmly clasped around a cup of coffee, gets set to answer a question, and then finds there's a page 3 where two other blokes named wizardfromoz are answering his questions :D:D:D

    Later, guys ;)

    (Wizard disappears in a puff of smoke, off to get more coffee)

    BTW - have a good holiday, Capta and stop making me jealous :p

    Not mine, Paul, closer to Capta.

    It's called Santorini, an island of the Cyclades in the southern Aegean Sea, perhaps Capta has visited. Devastated by a volcanic eruption in the 16th century but seems to have come back OK?

    Ships as a wallpaper of choice with Linux Mint 18.3, from whence the shot was taken.

    Now knock it off yer bunch of schoolboys, and tomorrow we get back to serious Timeshift stuff.

    I also have news for its sibling, Aptik, coming up shortly over at

    https://www.linux.org/threads/aptik-have-settings-will-travel.4529/

    ... so stay tuned :D

    TIMESHIFT NEWS - BULLETIN 3

    At time of writing, the latest sub- or point release for Timeshift is available from its author, Tony George.

    It is Timeshift v18.6 , with the last one being v18.4 released 1 April.

    If you are new to Timeshift and wanting to get the latest, you can find it here

    https://github.com/teejee2008/Timeshift/releases

    If you already have Tony's PPA as a part of your updates framework, in Debian-based Distros such as Ubuntu and Linux Mint &c, it should be passing through your updates notifications imminently.

    Cheers

    Wizard

    Hey Blackie, sorry to take so long.

    When you get a chance post us here a screenshot from GParted of your current setup, and also whether you have access to something like a 16GB USB stick.

    Cheers

    Chris
