I’m currently listening to this week’s episode of Destination Linux, & I have a suggestion about GRUB that may be useful. If you want Ubiquity to not install grub, running “ubiquity -b” will be of use to you. In my experience, it hasn’t stopped Ubuntu from automatically mounting my EFI partition when I log into my Ubuntu partition, but it does prevent Ubuntu from overwriting the existing GRUB on the EFI partition.
I hope this helps. 🙂
Hey I really like the way you had your guest Co-Host, both entertaining and informative. I really liked your interview with Martin Wimpress especially just before getting to meet him at Linuxfest Northwest! Great guy from a rural area like myself. So I have a problem I thought I’d ask you about? Hey has anyone else seen this: In Clementine the Spotify plugin no longer works correctly. I used to be able to access saved music and playlists. But now I can’t see my spotify playlists. It will however play an old saved Clementine playlist from before things broke. Thanks guys, keep up the great work! aka Ruralgeek
Some very kind Youtube comments on the show last week which shows how good the Linux community can be. All of them are much appreciated
A big thank you to each and every one of you for supporting us and Thank you For Watching Destination Linux
Have a great week and remember the Journey ITSELF is just as important as the Destination.

Cinnamon Spices website was rewritten from scratch
The goal wasn’t only to make it look better. More secure than before and attempting to guarantee better quality and better compatibility
The site supports oauth authentication via Google, Facebook and Github so you can comment and like your favorite spices
The maintenance of the spices themselves was moved to Github and every single change is now reviewed by the Linux Mint team to guarantee spices cannot be used for malicious purposes
Anyone can provide bug fixes and translations to Cinnamon spices
Both the Authors and the Linux Mint team is now directly involved in the maintenance of all Cinnamon spices. Many spices were removed, many were fixed, many were updated and the team is now able to add support to spices not only for current versions of Cinnamon but even for upcoming ones.
We’re getting closer and closer to a situation where everything “just works”, where quality spices are easy to find and where they work in your language.
Adds PPA’s, etc like welcome. But a 3rd party – may want to check what it is adding.
Seems to need a lot of BG access – expected.
Some of the option like repairing PPA actually rely on other tools that need to be installed from 3rd party PPA’s – but no dependency, just not found – like the y-ppa-manager, but available in the options to install.
