Ubuntu version for Clementine download

Asked by Veronica Nordeen on 2019-12-02

I'm new to Linux, which is on my refurbished Dell. I want to download Clementine but I need to know which version of Ubuntu on the laptop. My Window-type searches aren't working. What are the look-up steps?

Sorry. What are you asking and how would I find it?

Open a terminal window (e.g. by simultaneously pressing ctrl-alt-t) and type the commands as given.

Then use the terminal window's menu entries "edit - select all" and "edit - copy", and finally paste all output into this question document that we can see the results.

There is also another possibility to see which version of Ubuntu you are running:
Click on the cog wheel in the top right corner to open the configuration settings window.
And there you should find "about" or "info" showing the version of Ubuntu.

And another possibility: What do you have as desktop background?
Maybe you see the version number in the bottom left corner, or if you have an animal as the background - which one is it?

My apologies for the delay. Took me awhile to find something that matched
your suggestions. I need a Linux for Dummies book.
Linux Mint 19.1 Cinnamon version 4.0.10. I don't see a cog with anything
I open nor do i know your terminology.

Sorry. I still don't have a clue how to find what you are asking. Please
close ticket. I'll go back to Free Geek for a consultation.

Manfred Hampl suggests this article as an answer to your question:
FAQ #3041: “No support for Linux Mint”.

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #7

You are not running Ubuntu, but Linux Mint, so some of my advice does not work at all.

And for closing that question: You have to do this yourself by opening https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+question/686461 and pressing the related button below the text.

Can you help with this problem?
