I've setup a few Linux Mint installs for family and friends and I really like it! Especially the Cinnamon desktop release. Sensible defaults, easy to customize, and intuitive to use for new and old Linux users alike. Older hardware-friendly as well: I'm experiencing no problems running it on a circa-2013 Thinkpad.

To help with setup I created a config script: mint-after-install. It is ideally run after the first successful boot into the latest Linux Mint 20.3 Cinnamon Edition release.

How does it work?

  1. Connect to the internet.
  2. sudo apt install git
  3. git clone
  4. cd mint-after-install
  5. chmod u+x mint-after-install && sudo ./mint-after-install
