Introduction
The following information concentrates on the latest long-term versions of Debian, Ubuntu and Mint, namely Debian 9 (Stretch), Ubuntu 18.04 (Bionic) and Mint 19.x (Tara, Tessa, Tina, ...), but should be applicable, with modifications, to any Debian-derived distro.

Get Brackets working on Ubuntu >=18.04 and Mint 19.x

Posted 05-23-2019 at 04:03 AM by hydrurga

The problem
Brackets, the useful web development editor and environment, can be downloaded as a deb archive from http://brackets.io/. However, the package has a dependency on libcurl3, while Ubuntu Bionic and variants, and later versions, use libcurl4. Installing the package will therefore install libcurl3, and remove libcurl4, curl and any packages that depend on these. Not recommended.

This problem has existed for quite some time now, has been reported as an issue several...

MintBox

Tags maté, mint, mintbox

Been playing with this for a while now,
seems quite a good gadget - to play wih.
this one came with Mint13 - cinnamon - partially installed.
just had to complete the install - username, location etc.

haven't used cinnamon before - so was keen to 'give it a run'.
probably prefer Mate - though - but happy to use either. . .

the H/W is quite up-to-date & uses several usb's to connect,
the video is via hdmi & sound vis 2.5mm socket....
