This is my favorite GUI text editor for Linux, I use the Windows version all the time too. I also covered this topic here.

I'm using Mint Cinnamone installed on virtual machine VMWare. The instruction helped me to adjust my mouse scroll wheel speed. I set the value to 6. Now it's comfortable to use the mouse. Thanks a lot!

Ukuu - Ubuntu Kernel Upgrade Utility (must have)

Ukuu utility is a graphical program for notification of release of the new Linux kernel with automatic installer in graphical form, without the need to download separate .deb packages of the kernel.

Sorry for the spelling and phonetic errors in the text.
Owner and main writer of MintGuide.org is not a native English speaker.


 

Features:

*Fetches list of kernels from kernel.ubuntu.com

*Displays notifications when a new kernel update is available.

*Downloads and installs packages automatically

*Remove unused kernel

Excellent utility, which was developed and supported by the creators of hits like Aptik, TimeShift and Conky Manager.

 

Installation latest version into Linux Mint:

sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:teejee2008/ppa
sudo apt update
sudo apt install ukuu

The program is very simple, after you start it will index all the available kernels and show it to you. You only need to select a kernel and click "Install" button

Then the utility will download the necessary kernel packages and start the installation:

After installing the new kernel, you will be prompted to close all applications and restart the computer to use the new kernel:

sudo reboot

Once logged in, check the version of the current kernel with the command:

uname -r

Remove unused kernel is as simple as installing. Open Ukuu, find it in the list of installed but unused-click on the row and button "Remove":

Good Luck!!!

Thanks for this utility, which worked on Linux Mint 18.3. However, on each boot an error reporting firmware mismatch flashes by, and VirtualBox won't run.
