Linux Mint Tutorial Series – an overview

It is precisely the fragmentation and inaccessibility of available information on the internet that makes me try to make as much information as possible accessible to beginners through a number of simple tutorials. Via the links below you will find the different tutorials. It is advisable to go through these in the order indicated.

Tutorial series information

Distro versions: 

  • Linux Mint 21.x Cinnamon

Note: My current Linux Mint tutorial series is starting to get a bit outdated, as it was based on Linux Mint 19.X with an Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic foundation. The current Linux Mint 21 is based on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS, the latest long-term support release of Ubuntu. So I think it’s time to completely rewrite the entire series to the new Linux Mint 21 foundation so that you as a reader will be fully equipped with the latest information. So this is my first step of a complete rewrite of all 30 of my Linux Mint articles. So be patient and give me some time.
