Linux Mint is not compatible with my laptop. So Xubuntu, Kubuntu, or Ubuntu?
It's less likely that you will like to use outdated stuff, especially if you need a newer feature of a program. Debian will just make you hate GNU/Linux in general if you're a beginner.

If you're willing to at least attempt logical thought and do a bit of work and research it should work unless you're attempting to install on locked down or weird hardware like a low end trashtop or a tablet/convertible. What laptop?
