Re: Slow Performance Under Virtualbox

Why are you using Software Rendering ??? Are you being forced to, by chance? I should have been more clear, once I installed the VirtualBox Guest Additions and restarted it was no longer using software rendering. I expected performance to go up using hardware, but it was still noticeably laggy. I'l...

Slow Performance Under Virtualbox

I've installed LMDE3 as a guest OS under VirtualBox 5.2.20 on a Windows 10 Host. With software rendering, it's very laggy.

Installer not resizeable

I'm trying to install LMDE3 on an old EeePC and the installer GUI is too large for the screen. I can't see any buttons on the bottom of the install screens, and there is no scroll bar nor are the screens resizeable.

Currently using the Linux Mint sanctioned Thunderbird 52.9.1. with Lightning 5.4.
Well version 60 is what I got from the repos with a fresh install of LMDE3. I purged it and downloaded 52.9.1 and I am a happy camper again.

Thanks,
Rich

From what I've read it's supposed to come with it, but I can't figure out for the life of me how to activate it. This article was of no help: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/calendar-updates-issues-thunderbird The Lightning version on the Mozilla extensions site is not compatible with v60. Is t...

Re: Trouble installing guest additions on LM 17

Here's what I did after a fresh install of LM17 Cinammon (and updating the system): > sudo apt-get install build-essential module-assistant > sudo m-a prepare > sudo apt-get purge virtualbox* > sudo ./VBoxLinuxAdditions.run And it builds without problems. Hope this helps. Edit: I will say however th...

Re: Brightness Controls, LM16 on Acer Aspire S3

This workaround using xbacklight works for me on the Aspire S3:

The brightness function keys don't do squat for me on LM16 KDE.

Re: Acer Aspire S3 backlight under LM15

Thanks for this, I have the same model and it is indeed annoying that the backlight functions keys do not work on Mint 15 or 16.
