The problem is the same : "Cinnamon has just crashed (the actual message is in french).
OK, how about www.deepl.com - so you can speak perfect German, English or whatever you want - so tell us which error message is displayed. ;)

Re: Cinnamon crashes with Nvidia drivers

Try first to deinstall xserver-xorg-video-nouveau AFTER (!) nvidia-driver installation (this is the dafault open source driver for nvidia which might be still interacting). And a hint "for" stuttering videos (even if nvidia-driver is running correctly): Open Firefox, write about:config in the url-ba...

Hello,

after a trivial search for WIFI KEY LMDE via SEARCH in the upper right corner of this page, I can find several posts to solve this problem... something like:

Thank you for your commitment. Also tested again yesterday: USB stick 2.0 plugged in... 1.1 GB file copied from desktop to stick. The copy indicator window shows me a write throughput of 64 MB/s constantly!? Impossible... and after a few seconds the window is gone. In the system control I can see: T...

Re: [SOLVED] Disable .xsession-errors logging in LMDE 3

My actual goal is to exclude unimportant writing processes ... and (in this case) not only to protect my 9 year old ssd from a few kilobytes a day, but especially to keep logs to a minimum. e.g. I have swapped out all unimportant logs (and most of them are when the system is running smoothly!) into ...

Re: LMDE3: old Firefox: very slow update time, still on 60.3 and not on 64.x

And it comes with Firefox ESR, of which you've got the latest version. Not FF 60.3 ESR is the current version, rather FF 60.4 ESR has been the current version since at least December 12th 2018 - however, it is not available via the LMDE 3/Cindy update channel (60.3.0esr~linuxmint1+betsy), but via t...

Re: Copy corruption / Copy progress indicator fails

I've retested and it also occurs in the following scenario: When you save from USB to the computer hard drive everything runs as expected - the copy hint window closes when all data has been backed up to the hard drive. If you now connect a new USB device and copy the data from the computer's hard d...

Re: Cinnamon Update Jan. 19 issues

if nothing does the job you will have to delete .config/dconf/user logoff but that will reset some other things for cinnamon, which may be a good idea anyway OK, then there are all settings gone which I can set under "Settings -> System Settings" out of the startmenu... or are there any deeper chan...

Hello, since the last Cinnamon update there are 2 issues: 1. After each reboot/shutdown the desktop icons are sized normal - not small anymore (my regular setting). 2. The folder icon size option in folder options for Symbol View was set to 66%... now it is 100% but 66% is still shown in settings (s...

Copy corruption / Copy progress indicator fails

Since LMDE 3 copying from an USB-HDD to an USB-Stick or vice versa has been characterized by the following facts: The window, which shows the copying process with progress bar, closes BEFORE all data has been written to the other USB medium. With a 1 GB file the discrepancy between completion of cop...

Re: Had lmde 64bit working, then tried to update nvidia drivers and now has pcieport errors and won't start

Hello, maybe you forgot to update your kernel to the new nvidia driver... In my case I have to run sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r) nvidia-legacy-340xx-driver to install the driver properly. P.S. Check your correct driver version ( mine is nvidia-legacy-340xx-driver) for your card by n...

Also the "safe removal" only works correct with the 320 GB drive... the 1 TB drive either doesn't hang out completely, or co...

Re: cpu usage

Hello, the last days (after a fresh install of LMDE 3) there was a strong increase in my CPU load by the use of Firefox, too. In retrospect, it turned out that an extension was responsible for this, which did not cause such a problem in LMDE 2 and only by visiting Amazon (I noticed it in the thumbna...

[Solved] Disable .xsession-errors logging in LMDE 3

Thank you very much... it seems to work here , too.

Now I've got an arrow on my ~/.xsession-errors file icon and there are such 0 bytes in it all the time.

Hopefully the input will not saved elsewhere now... instead just send to nirvana. :wink:

Re: Disable .xsession-errors logging in LMDE 3

Sorry,

no luck... it's like putting the file in the RAM:

Change file -> Reboot -> Login Screen -> Loging in -> Blank Screen -> Login Screen again... and again. :(
