FreeCAD Crash on .svg import

This looks to me like a Mint 19 issue, so is there a better place to report it? I am running FreeCAD on Mint 19 Cinnamon and it is crashing. I still have Mint 18 on my laptop and I can run it successfully on that. I am experiencing a crash when I import a .svg file. Tried on FreeCAD 0.18 AppImage an...

Re: Mint 19 - Software Rendering

OK I tried both of your suggestions and neither worked. I did see some conflict errors as I had 5.1 installed and it expected 5.2 What I have done - apt purge virtualbox-guest* removed VirtualBox via Synaptic downloaded and installed 5.2.12 from the Oracle site, note that I had to go back to the ver...

Mint 19 - Software Rendering

I have just installed Mint 19 in an Oracle Virtual Box, host is Mint 18.3.
When I start it I get a message - 'Running in software rendering mode'.
Current drivers are
virtualbox-guest-x11-hwe
virtualbox-guest-dkms-hwe

How do I fix it?

Thanks
Mick

Re: HP 5510 Printer - Settings Conflict

Just tried installing following that link. If I select print from an application, eg xviewer, it uses CUPS and allows me to select plain paper or slide transparency. They give very poor results on photo paper. I can also open the HPLIP Toolbox, there I can select photo paper, but any attempt to prin...

Re: HP 5510 Printer - Settings Conflict

It's been a while since I opened this and I still have not resolved it. I have also tried installing the HP driver software, a most frustrating experience. That does allow me to select photo paper, but then it fails with error code 1, "lpdr -P HP-Photosmart-5510-series -o page-set=all". I have just ...

Re: Startup problem

Thanks for the replies and suggestions. I have made the changes and as the problem is not reproducible I just have to wait and see if it happens again.

Running Mint 18.1 Cinnamon 64-bit on my laptop.

Re: System Error / Failure Messages

Thanks for the reply. I changed from xserver-xorg-video-nouveau driver to nvidia-340 a while back as it was causing catastrophic failures with VirtualBox. I have just changed from that to nvidia-375 and I have green dots at boot!! Also it seems to boot faster, but that maybe my imagination. Some of ...

I run Mint 18.1 Cinnamon 64-bit on Laptop and Desktop. On bootup I see the Mint logo and white dots below it, these dots cycle white to green on my laptop, but on my desktop they cycle white and red (or orange).
