Hi all
Just had a check in my update manager and have seen a load of updates sitting there, should i install  all the ticked ones? i mean it won't do any harm? I've noticed that some video's on youtube etc are braking up a bit so wondered if an update might be the answer.
Thanks for any help, and happy new year to all
john

Yup, install them .. then reboot :)

Personally I'd install Peppermint 3 as updates for Peppermint 2 will either have stopped, or will stop shortly .. as support for Ubuntu 11.04 (which Peppermint 2 s based on is coming/has come to an end.

Nope I'm afraid there's no "upgrade" path for Peppermint, so it will need a fresh install following the Peppermint 3 tutorial

but the good news is, Peppermint 3 will have a full 5 years of updates .. so there'll be no need to install peppermint 4 in a hurry 9unlless you choose to) :)
