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. :(

Re: Disable .xsession-errors logging in LMDE 3

Ok, but under Cinnamon there is only /etc/x11/xsession.d - does it mean I have to create /etc/x11/xsession without .d to put in? Btw. I didn't get any errors in the past which make xsession-errors logging usefull... and if some come up in the future I will know how to get the logging back. ;) Cu Dr....

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

Hello, in the HOME directory there is a .xsession-error file. I don't need it - and therefore it is not usefull if you use a SSD and logging generates written data all the time (some programs -like GIMP- put sometimes a huge amount of data in it). All log files in my system are stored only in RAM by...

Re: Firefox ESR 52.9 last one on Jessie (LMDE 2)?

Thanks for your effort and time. From now on and until the end of the year I am right on the LMDE FF ESR repository path. btw. As far as I remember, I've chosen the Debian FF ESR branch since the beginning of LMDE 2, because the initial LMDE2 repostiory had only inserted the normal firefox (without ...

Firefox ESR 52.9 last one on Jessie (LMDE 2)?

Hello, can anyone tell me if Jessie's (LMDE 2) Firefox ESR 52.9 will ever update to 60.x ESR? For example, I read about the package "RUST" that is needed but not right included in Jessie (or something like that), but no concrete answers as to whether Jessie can still get the next higher FF ESR versi...

Re: Will the Mint 17.3 wifi card solution [Qualcomm Atheros QCA6164] work on LMDE2?

Maybe this is the cause: Running "modprobe ath10k_pci" shows that the ath10k_pci module looks for the firmware in a folder called QCA6174, but not in any folder called QCA6164."
