Predictable, regular lag on Mint 18.1 x64

I installed 18.1 fresh on my system and I'm getting a predictable, regular lag, or stutter, every ten seconds like clock-work, but it only impacts video output and mouse/keyboard input. If I'm watching something in any browser (I alternate between Firefox and Chrome) on YouTube, or playing something...

Re: Please HELP me create a Live USB Mint 18 MATE with persistence

I tried this with Mint 18 x64 and Ubuntu 16.04 x64 and I can't get it to work. It will boot fine if the casper-rw partition is on a different drive or a file on the same drive but I only get the ash busybox prompt if I don't have the second drive or rename/delete the casper-rw file. :cry:

Re: Linux Mint 18 Live USB Persistence with casper-rw

Ok. Scratch that. Turns out it was using the casper-rw partition on my Ubuntu 16.04 Live USB stick (plugged in behind where I didn't see it). Seems they both suffer the same problem. I have to have both plugged in as neither will use the casper-rw partition from it's own drive. Does anybody know wha...

Re: Linux Mint 18 Live USB Persistence with casper-rw

I don't know how reliable this is but on my LM18 USB installer drive, I created a file in /.disk named casper-rw-uuid-generic and inside, I saved the UUID for my casper-rw partition on the USB drive and it works without the casper-rw file created by unetbootin which I deleted. If anybody else can co...

Password not working on “Switch User” only

I have Ubuntu 15.10 x64, which was upgraded in a long series of upgrades going back to 9.04. Over time, many things (including most of the hardware by now) have changed. What has not changed, however (or not very often), are my login credentials. I've been using Cinnamon since it was released in pla...

Cinnamon-settings backgrounds module fails to load images

I honestly have no idea what's going on. Running Cinnamon 2.8.6 on Ubuntu 15.04, and when I bring up the Backgrounds module, no images load. So I ran cinnamon-settings from a terminal, and this is what I see: evilsupahfly@black-beast:/var/lib/apt $ cinnamon-settings ** (cinnamon-settings.py:2996): W...

Re: Cross-Filesystem cloning

I used RSYNC as suggested and with the I/O errors at the source, it took 85 hours consecutively to complete. Since it was all just movies and pictures and other downloads like .zip and .7z stuff, I didn't have any unwanted Windows system files.

Actually, I went to http://www.noobslab.com/2014/11/cinnamon-24-desktop-released-install-in.html?m=1 and added the PPA mentioned in the article. That being said, however, I have been informed independently that the problem likely is linked to the difference between the Gnome libraries in 14.10 and t...

Cinnamon crashing on load

Running Cinnamon 2.4.5 over Ubuntu 14.10 x64 with nVidia official binaries, not the Nouveau drivers. When logging in to a Cinnamon session, it crashes and I have to run it in Fallback Mode. When attempting to start it from the terminal, this is what I get: evilsupahfly@black-beast:~$ cinnamon --repl...

I have an ailing HDD formatted NTFS and I have a a replacement HDD of the same size (500 GB) which is formated EXT4. Is there a fast way to copy 476 GB from NTFS to EXT4? I looked at Clonezilla and several variants, but they mirror or clone byte for byte, meaning it will recreate NTFS at the destina...

Running Cinnamon on x64. Had no problems before with 17, then upgraded to 17.1 and now I no longer have the ability to change my wallpaper.

Re: RTL8187B Won't Work under Minx 17 x64

Well, I will do a clean install then, put some newer kernel .deb's on a USB stick and see where the road takes me. :)

Also, corrected minor typo in my previous post. uname output should say 3.13.0 as the version both on the live DVD and the installed version.

3.13.0-generic, which seems to be broken on my Desktop PC now. Had installed and booted 3.16.3, but my nVidia GFX card isn't supported in it yet. Not sure what version was in my Ubuntu 13.10 install, but it worked. I suppose I can get a new kernel, save to USB, and install, just to see what happens....

Still having issues under Mint. I booted into Windows, and tested. Under XP, I can authenticate and connect to my WIFI on the IPN card, though in Windows, it doesn't come up IPN (and I forgot to note what it said). However, before I installed NDISWRAPPER, Mint couldn't see or use the built-in. After...

Re: RTL8187B Won't Work under Minx 17 x64

Yes because I had an HDD failure and had to swap a drive out (it held /usr and /var). The black-beast has had a long and colourful history that started with 11.10 and has been running Ubuntu since then. When 14.04 was released, I added the Mint repos, ditched Unity and went with Cinnamon. But becaus...
