Re: The middle mouse button no longer unrolls the contextual menu

Hello, I'm testing Linux Mint 19 (beta) and Cinnamon (version 3.8.4) and I discover with fright that during a drag and drop, the middle mouse button (wheel button) no longer unrolls the contextual menu (which allowed to choose to copy / move / create a symbolic link ...). Catastrophe! I did not fin...

Re: Conky freeze or GPU issue?

So, another update... One of my friends suggested I should look in ~/.Xsession-errors to see if something is being reported around the time of the crash. Well, there are a bunch of errors, and I ended up getting side tracked on one about keyring (forgot what the error was). None-the-less, I had to i...

Re: Conky freeze or GPU issue?

I have the same graphics card, or a very close version of it, and recently installed Conky myself. It blinks each time the data updates, which is irritating to me. In my research to my conundrum, I invoked a horrible screen flicker as well. Luckily, I made a backup copy before I started messing wit...

No worries...this is the conky.config section for mine which is blink free - it might help identify other possible causes.. conky.config = { own_window = true, own_window_class = 'Conky', own_window_type = 'desktop', own_window_transparent = false, own_window_argb_visual = true, own_window_argb_val...

[SOLVED] Conky freeze or GPU issue?

Since upgrading to mint 18.3, I have encountered several issues. But most have been easily resolved. One that I cannot seem to figure out though, is that after running for a bit, and sometimes not until I put my box under a heavy load, my conky seems to freeze. But if I run killall conky in terminal...

Raising an old thread I know, but this recently became a quest of mine. I started with a simple google search and came across this post. After reading it, I couldn't take "no" for an answer, so I dug deeper. I found where the default bashrc is stored in Linux Mint 17.3, and probably other versions. ...

Re: Remove or Disable EFI in Mint 16

You installed Mint 16 with 64 bit and it detected a GPT formatted disc (instead of MBR) and did what it is supposed to do, which is install using an EFI. Are you then unable to view files in the EFI partition? This might interest you. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1974392 Thanks, that li...
