Hey,

 

I would like to know have you ever tried using a virtual desktop? I would suggest you to install it on windows desktop and acess the same windows virtual desktop on your Linux Mint 18.2 itself thats te power of cloud !

Re: Installation failed on Linux Mint 18.2

For anyone running into similar issues in Linux Mint 19, I was able to resolve this by temporarily modifying /etc/lsb-release to include the Ubuntu 18.04 information instead, installing the package, and then reverting /etc/lsb-release.  The installation script uses this file to determine the OS, but doesn't check for Linux Mint specifically.

 

 

My /etc/lsb-release file looks like this now, so that I can comment/uncomment as needed.  In this case, you'd want to comment out Linux Mint, and uncomment Ubuntu.  Set it back to normal when you're done.

 

Hope this helps! 

 

$ cat /etc/lsb-release
DISTRIB_ID=LinuxMint
DISTRIB_RELEASE=19
DISTRIB_CODENAME=tara
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Linux Mint 19 Tara"

#For installers that check this file for Ubuntu, these entries should work
#DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
#DISTRIB_RELEASE=18.04
#DISTRIB_CODENAME=bionic
#DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS"
