Re: Mint 19.3 w/ kernel 5.3 breaks HDMI output on laptop

Yep.
There are lots of others reporting graphics problems.
fwiw the kernel upgrade seems to be the culprit. Revert to previous kernel at grub screen.
Report your findings

Surely there will be package updates soon to mitigate

Re: No hardware acceleration in 19.3 new upgrade

Others are reporting similar video driver issues after updates. Try this: Reboot--and at the grub screen select the advanced options just below your listed os. Select the previous generic kernel number just below the top option. That should get you back to normal. If so just uninstall the new kernel...

Re: Install recommended packages to avoid problems

There could be conflicts with automatic Recommends.

For instance:

I have a 19.3 MATE that was upgraded from 19.2 in-place via Update Manager.
I decided to add Celluloid--which recommends youtube-dl, but I already have
the youtube-dl.org version of yt-dl. That would be a conflict.

Did you do a clean install of 19.3 or and upgrade from 19.2?
I have both. Just tested again in both in-place upgrade and fresh installation.
Perhaps a graphic driver issue or maybe even a theme conflict

Re: Compiz Warning

Hi JYJersey
I checked the box for Simple Animations to see what it did and found out it trashes your installation!
Just to say this is not happening here with 19.3 MATE using Compiz Simple Animations

You're welcome. You can right-click just to the left of the left-most open window in the panel and choose
to Lock to panel. The spot is just barely outside the box.

Re: Applications don't minimise to task bar

Sounds like you are missing panel (aka Taskbar) applet 'Windows List'

right click an empty spot on the panel and choose Add to Panel
then scroll down to find Windows List, highlight it and click Add button at bottom

You can get it through Synaptic or by:

The file is present in a fresh installation but not when upgrading

Needed humidity was added to the very dry air. 3. The air was always fresh air from outside. We left a small crack in several windows to le...
