Cinnamon 14 - Freeze windows opened when some apps started

Postby wtlhk on Sun Apr 21, 2013 7:11 am

When I tried to open certain applications it always jumps out an empty window that cannot be closed or removed or etc, and the only way to remove is to reboot my notebook.

Google earth is one of the affected apps, look at the following screenshots :

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Hello .
It looks like RAM memory is low,you can make swap partition to 2-4G as install,then Mint use it like memory.
Maybe you try install Cinnamon ,xfce is light version and works better on old computers.
Test with live DVD before install.

Hi.
I'm using Google maps http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=fi&tab=wl ,it's near same and can use with browser .Works fine .
Don't need any programs to open it,just go to browser and google maps.Can see satelite maps ,street wiews same things as Google earth was before.
My browser are setted to start with Google and can see many things like You,Search,Picture search,Maps,Play,YouTube,Gmail,Drive,Calender,Translator and more.
When installed Mint to your computer there open Mint sites with Google as you open FireFox.If changed you can search with google site google and make bookmark.
Just go to FireFox and Edit/Settings/use bookmarks as you have it.
You don't need open RAR-files for linux,there are programs in packages what you can load with Synamptic.Them are made for Mint you use and works better on it.
If you want use some programs from windows with wine ,RAR-files can open with archiver.

Perhaps this can help you. ;)
