The Linux Mint team is improving their distribution's System Reports tool. The System Reports utility is a desktop application for browsing system information. Originally, it was used to browse through basic information and crash reports, but now System Reports is taking on a more proactive role: "Going forward it will run in the background and let you know when issues require your attention. This allows us to communicate with you and to help you in a way we couldn’t before. Unlike the documentation and the release notes which are generic and targeted at all users, this tool allows us to show information and solutions which are relevant to you specifically, and if we know how to fix them, to provide you with a button you can click to solve things easily. So far the tool checks: If a new version of Linux Mint is available. If your version of Linux Mint is getting close to EOL. If your Timeshift configuration is set up (the Update Manager won’t care about this anymore). If there are drivers available. If you are missing language packs. If you are missing multimedia codecs." Further information on System Reports and the upcoming MintBox 3 hardware can be found in the project's monthly newsletter.
