Any solutions to this? I'd like the option to protect folders with a password as well.
General Support / Cinnamon 3.6 just got released and it's getting installed...

Just a heads-up: Cinnamon 3.6 just got released, and it gets installed when users do updates.

The most noticeable side effect is Onboard and the Cinnamon On-screen Keyboard applet clash with each other, at least visually. I can't get Onboard to switch from a floating icon to using a status icon.
The "touch-setup" script I think will need to be revised.

Other than that, so far everything seems ok, and I guess improved.

You'll need to do a CD install on a Mac that old.

Successfully copied ubermix-key3.31.img and ubermix-key2.51L.img to a Kingston DataTraverler 100 G3 16 GB USB drive. The computer (see below for specs) could not see the USB drive as a startup disk. Any advice? Try ubermix-key2.51.img? Please advise.

Hi, all.

Just installed ubermix to a laptop for my son. Works great! However, I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to connect it to our network printer, which is a Canon imageCLASS MF8280Cw. I've read some info online, but much of it is too technical (I'm a noob to linux). Any help for a novice would be greatly appreciated.

Yes, for a general user, with your laptop (or any laptop) you are better off with any of the standard Ubuntu versions.
Go ahead and give it a try.
You will also find that they have a forum section in Spanish:

I'm in that community too:

I would suggest that you use Ubuntu MATE 16.04.2, and 64bits if your computer can do it (it probably can).

Thank you very much,

I went to ubermix because of the description I read, I also liked it's light form, and the tools that come with it.

Now, I hear your recommendation, and if you recommend this Ubuntu Mate OS for my Laptop ( acer Travelmate B115) I will surely give it a try, especially if it is more stable and better supported.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

First of all, sorry for the long time without a reply.
Second, I think using Ubermix as a private user is not such a great idea. A lot of the thought process behind Ubermix is for meeting the needs of schools.
I would recommend that you check out other Linux distributions with more active communities of users. This forum is mostly used by the IT system administrators of schools, with our own busy schedules.

What were your reasons for using Ubermix?
Lately I have recommended people Ubuntu MATE as a great option for beginners.
It has a tool (MATE Tweak) that can make it look like Windows, Mac, or other systems.
They also have a very healthy community of users, and a lot of them Spanish-speakers.
Let me know if you want some tips in that direction.
