  • Subject changed from Test /install/debian/usb on Linux Mint 18.1 Serena to Test /install/debian/usb on Linux Mint 19
  • Target version changed from Tails_3.0~rc1 to Tails_3.5

18.1 Serena is a minor version. Let’s instead check this for the next major version which should be after 18.04 (Ubuntu LTS).

Looks like this won’t be ready for 3.5.

  • Target version changed from Tails_3.8 to Tails_3.9

I downloaded Linux Mint 19 Beta. Next, I should test installing Tails from it.

There’s at least one thing to change: Software Sources needs to be open from the main menu and not from Software Manager anymore.

But I couldn’t test the scenario fully because I couldn’t make Software Sources work behind my HTTP proxy.

I’ll try again later next week.

Here is a branch.

Cody, please have a look!

I see now that Linux Mint has been released already, so marking this as Elevated.

Ah, and please don’t go through the hassle of downloading and testing the new instructions on Mint. Please only have a look at the text and the branch.

I’m not sure if this is deliberate or not, but “Make sure that you are connected to the Internet” is in its own list of steps and is the only step in the list. Since I’m not sure if that’s deliberate, I’m noting it here.

Yeah…. That’s the best I could find and I think it’s fine. I’m merging!
