Optical Drive Sporadic

I have two different optical drives on my Linux Mint 18.3 machine. One is blu-ray and one is dvd. At reboot, each will work as expected. For example, when a disc is loaded, it will be recognized. If k3b is used to burn a disc, it works. But, after some time (ie 1 or 2 hours) after reboot, neither op...

Re: No System Sounds, but application sounds work fine

I am running Distro: Linux Mint 18 Sarah I am currently having the same problem. System Sounds are not assigned to a playback device in pulseaudio, yet other applications are. I was attempting to "fix" my audio. Before I started, System Sounds were assigned and thus working. Through the process of f...

Re: Live DVD can't vnc

viewtopic.php?t=204048 reported that remmina client could work. So, I installed remmina and then remmina-plugin-vnc and then had to disable the ssh tunnel setting in the ssh tab and got remote desktop sharing to work. So, maybe it is a client side, not server side issue.

Chrome Taskbar Item is snagged when cursor goes past

Here is something I haven't seen till recently. I am running chrome browser which then shows an instance of chrome running in the panel (taskbar). When I inadvertantly allow my cursor to travel over top that chrome panel item, the chrome item latches (gets snagged) on my cursor as if I were attempti...

Optical Drives Won't Work

Running Linux Mint 17.3. I have two different optical drives. Neither of them work. They are recognized. However, when attempting to burn, they almost always fail to burn mid process. When attempting to read, they sometimes work, sometimes don't work (ie read) They won't eject either by the command ...

I have been semi successful in using Cinnamon for my Desktop Environment when I sit at the computer (ie console mode). When I remote in using xrdp, ...

Re: Mint 17.2 Screen Lock - passwords twice to unlock

I'm using Linux Mint 17.3. I have the same problem now, but it just started. So, I ran for weeks with 17.3 before this started. Of course, it could be anything, but I am suspicious of some software I loaded call "gnome-do". To me, it seems like it started about the same time. I haven't attempted to ...

Re: Cinnamon with XRDP Remote Desktop

Since I have not recently tested cinnamon with XRDP, I won't call this solved. More recently, I have used MATE for those applications where I know I'll be running headless. This has helped, because at least the menus are there, even if they're not the cinnamon version. The cinnamon fall back version...

Hey austin.texas, you were right, it was just the mouse. Seemed like I had performed the proper diagnostics prior to posting, but sure enough, after your response, I decided to look at it again. No problems since I changed out the mouse. SOLVED.

I have opened nemo via "sudo nemo", expecting to have root authority to apply changes to folders and their subfolders and files, however, no...
