To take a series of snapshots I use Agilia, where the window remains open, and where snapshot can be fine tuned with date, time and title, also Agilia for good memory management. In Chakra: Calligra Words for word processing & Krita for images, and also to run Wine. In Mint: the Gimp for images, VLC media player, Yahoo news with iffy scripts under Firefox, Skype, Transmission for Torrents, and Brasero for burning, to name but a few.Salvaging Session Settings after a Failed SuspendRunning Nadia Live DVD from Iso 'linuxmint-14-cinnamon-dvd-32bit.iso' on HD
Under Maya cinammon after a Suspend
, upon hitting keys or moving mouse the system has always snapped back into life. Nadia however does it sporadically, and most of the time one ends up with a cursor which follows the mouse, but is unable to activate anything. The same goes for the keys. The clock remains frozen, and showing the time of reanimation.
Under Maya cinammon there was a problem with Libra Writer when it clobbered the desktop, and trying Ctl+Alt+<-
proved ineffective, killing cinammon
useless, managed to salvage the situation by killing gnome-session
from Console 1.
That recovery procedure has also proven effective here in salvaging the session settings etc.
- ps -C gnome-session
- kill <PID gnome-session>
- Wait until Desktop Reappears
