Re: Printer cannot be set up on LM 18.3 cinnamon

Re: Flash player is installed, yet browswer doesn't recognize it

Hello, Elysium. As the Flash player plugin has been installed, it will be available in Firefox, too. For quite some time, the default setting in Firefox, however, is to activate Flash only on demand ( ask to activate ). It might alos be completely de-activated. Then you will have to re-activate it....

How do I check why an app makes my OS freeze?

Hi there, I have been using Astrill (a VPN provider) for a while. Yesterday, I upgraded to 19.1 LM cinnamon and I installed the .deb from the Astrill website. I wanted to open the app, but it made my whole system freeze. I wanted to check this app through the terminal (just to start it and check if ...

Error in the installation medium

Hey guys, I am slightly concerned because of 1 error that I constantly get after checking my USB LM 19.1 cinnamon install medium for errors. I did the .iso check and it returned no errors. Any ideas what is going on? Here are some screenshots. Thanks. IMG_20190620_095021_resized_20190620_100223553.j...

What do the "/" and "/home" mean?

I am sure that I'll be mocked for asking this ultimate newbie question, but so far I kept only using "/" when installing the LM OS alongside my Windows OS. Recently, I have read that "/" is the boot partition and "/home" is the partition for the main folder to be in. I guess that if I do not choose ...

Double tray icon in LM 19.1

Hey folks, This is not a system-wide issue, but with one app....I ended up seeing 2 windows on the bottom panel. I guess it is a bug with the app, but is there a setting within LM that can make the other icon disappear or resolve this issue? When I minimize it, there is only one panel item. When I m...

Reinstalling LM 19.1 XCFE (for LM 19.1 Cinnamon) on a dual-boot system (WIN 10/LM 19.1)

I have a WIN10/LM 19.1 XCFE system. I have decided to change LM 19.1 XCFE for LM 19.1 Cinnamon. When running the installation process, it doesn't give me the option of replacing the current LM OS with the new LM OS. Can I just simply choose the partition of the current LM as the destination for the ...

Off-topic: Has 19.1 LM cinnamon gone through tremendous changes?

I do apologize for the off-topic nature of my question. I have just installed LM cinnamon onto a USB stick and the OS looks completely different to what it used to be in previous versions (graphically speaking). Has anything changed that required modifications to such an extent? It didnt even feel l...

Re: Update manager fails to retrieve data (LM Xfce 19.1)

The repositories are digitally signed, so you can trust them actually, you'd get an error message if the data had been modified (unless your local mirrors require you to install their own signing keys - in that case they'd be tampering with the data for sure ;)). I mentioned the blacklist because y...
