Are you sure?

Sweden has taken the ignominious title of the country with the world’s highest death rate from Covid-19. The title, which was was briefly held by the UK late last month, comes after Swedish officials decided to ignore the lockdown advice of countless health experts and kept the country largely open during the pandemic. The number of deaths per capita in Sweden is now more than four-times that of its Nordic neighbours.

Re: Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Users: 'Snap' package Heads Up.. Az4x4 Yesterday at 08:57 PM

With Ubuntu 20.04 installing snap packages when users specifically request .deb packages instead, people are asking if Linux Mint 20, the most popular Ubuntu re-spin of them all, and due to be released later this month, will likewise ship with snap packages set to install in place of .deb packages by default?

Here's the essence Mint's response to this question:

...In Linux Mint 20, if you want to install Chromium as a .deb package, it won’t be an empty package which functions as a trigger to install the 'snap package' version of Chromium in place of the .deb package you asked for, unlike the way Ubuntu 20.04 does this.

Linux Mint 20 won't permit 'snapd' to be installed behind your back. You'll be able to install it yourself if you wish, and Mint will document how to do this in Mint 20's release notes. However by default repository packages won't do this without your consent.

Basically, nothing to worry about with the soon to be released Linux Mint 20. 'Snap packages' won't be installed behind your back in place of .deb packages, just one of many improvements Mint will offer in Mint 20..

Re: Disc brake maintenance? peejman Yesterday at 02:49 PM
My guess is that it just takes several hours for all the tiny (nearly invisible) bubbles to coalesce into bubbles large enough to be pushed out via fluid motion. Holding the system under pressure seems to accelerate that process.

Muniac's idea is a good one as well, sounds like how I've bled car master cylinders before.

And there's the joy of working with brake fluid itself, being a super effective paint stripper. I feel I should also mention to be sure you've got the correct brake fluid. DOT 3 and DOT 4 are interchangeable, with DOT 4 having a slightly higher boiling point. DOT 5 fluid is different and not compatible with systems designed for DOT 3 or 4.
