Re: Lock screen is frozen

I'm running Mint 19.2 and what I've discovered so far is that this seems to happen when Thunderbird pops up a calendar event notification window behind the lock screen. When that happens, the lock screen appears unresponsive and only shows the first star or no stars when typing in the password, but ...

Re: Full screen games revealing desktop pixels along bottom and right edges of screen in Cinnamon on Mint 19.2

Nice bug report, thanks! :D

I wonder if they'll push out a fix for them in 19.2 or wait for 19.3.

Re: Full screen games revealing desktop pixels along bottom and right edges of screen in Cinnamon on Mint 19.2

Found a second bug with Effects. In System Settings > Themes, you click on any of the five sections and a window pops up with the available options normally. But, in System Settings > Effects you change "Effects style" to "Fly down, up", it will make it so the window that pops up in Themes immediate...

Re: Full screen games revealing desktop pixels along bottom and right edges of screen in Cinnamon on Mint 19.2

I get the same as you so I'll update the bug report. I've tried to narrow down by enabling the Customise option, and tweaking various options, but can't seem to narrow it down to one specific setting. Recreating Scale as Cinnamon does fix the issue though. So you mean even when setting custom setti...

Re: Full screen games revealing desktop pixels along bottom and right edges of screen in Cinnamon on Mint 19.2

No worries, that's helpful info. Anything that can help narrow down the common factor will help refine the bug report and make it easy for the devs to reproduce and hopefully fix. Yes, that's my intention. If there are any other ways I can help, let me know, and thanks so much for helping with this...

Re: Full screen games revealing desktop pixels along bottom and right edges of screen in Cinnamon on Mint 19.2

In Cinnamon open the Effects GUI. Try either disabling Windows effects or switching Effects Style from Cinnamon to another choice. For example i can't reproduce the issue with the Effects style set to Scale. Thanks smurphos! I can confirm that all of the "Effects style" options fix this bug for me ...

Full screen games revealing desktop pixels along bottom and right edges of screen in Cinnamon on Mint 19.2

So far I've confirmed this problem happens with both the closed source NVIDIA driver as well as open source Mesa for AMD on completely different computers. Problem started after upgrading to Mint 19.2. Anyone else seeing a line of pixels from the desktop background along the right and bottom edges, ...

KaOS Linux and Mageia 7 have options to boot the live usb in nvidia non-free mode. but you will never see bleeding edge software in ubuntu. if you don't see it in ubuntu you will not see it in mint. mint depends way too much on ubuntu But since Mint is based on Ubuntu currently, and because adding ...

Re: Include the latest NVIDIA (and AMD) graphics drivers for a better out-of-the-box experience

Oh and by the way, the top comment in this Reddit thread was the reason I came back here to update this thread. Fairly big discussion about getting the newest NVIDIA drivers and confusion around that for newbies, and how other distros do it better. Might be worth a read. https://www.reddit.com/r/lin...

Re: Include the latest NVIDIA (and AMD) graphics drivers for a better out-of-the-box experience

The Driver Manager already offers these drivers. This is a request to have it offer the newer drivers, that's all. Video driver updates are rather important because they contain updated definitions for what certain objects should like under OpenGL, but that said, the 390 driver is LTS, so it is mai...

Re: Include the latest NVIDIA (and AMD) graphics drivers for a better out-of-the-box experience

OK, gotcha. Actually, I can confirm that's what adding the graphics-drivers PPA does, in fact. Right now, I have the 390, 396, 410, 415, 418, and nouveau drivers all showing in my Driver Manager because I have that PPA added, and I'm 99% sure that the 390 and/or 396 drivers are the older original o...

Re: Include the latest NVIDIA (and AMD) graphics drivers for a better out-of-the-box experience

The problem with Linux GPU drivers, especially with Nvidia, is that they drop support for older GPUs all the time. At least with the stock drivers that come with Mint, you're very likely to get one that will support your GPU. As already mentioned in this thread, adding the PPA is very easy. This is...

Re: Include the latest NVIDIA (and AMD) graphics drivers for a better out-of-the-box experience

I think it'd make sense to do this for users as part of their installation experience I agree that the user experience would be enhanced but the nVidia drivers aren't 'free', as in open source. Even the kernel complains about tainting when it detects the nVidia driver. There are onerous license con...

Re: Include the latest NVIDIA (and AMD) graphics drivers for a better out-of-the-box experience

Have any of the devs considered making the newest drivers in the graphics-drivers PPA available in the driver manager tool, so that the PPA will get added upon selecting one of those drivers, or even just making the graphics-drivers be a default PPA? Or some other way of doing it, but you get the ge...
