One of the reasons that Linux in all of its forms works so well, is the community of users who give the developers feedback. As a user of multiple Linux Mint computers, we find the Mint community a great place to air problems, ask questions, and review software.
If you have a program that’s not behaving itself, let the developer know about it. The easiest way is to write a review of the software. Once you are registered in the community for your distribution, then put that user name and password in the Software Manager so you can leave comments.
Why do I bring this up today? Well, I really wanted some software , but after I installed it, I found that it wouldn’t run more than 20 seconds or so after it was launched. I’d installed it from the Terminal, as I do most packages, so when I opened the Software Manager and read similar complaints, I was grateful that other community members had noted the problem. I added my 2 cents as well.
