Re: 18.2 Cinnamon high CPU

Welcome aboard, mintyeric! Have you installed the guest additions? That usually takes care of the software emulation. The software emulation is likely what is causing the high CPU usage: if it can't use the GPU to process video, the main CPU has to do it. Yes, it is possible to convert your Cinnamon...

Why not ask him? I haven't been on the MX forums recently, but he used to get on there now and then. I suppose you could PM him there.

Re: You do not have write permission...

It working right now, but it seems like there is no desktop shortcut and start menu shortcut... That is fairly common with programs that don't get installed through the normal means (.deb files and such). But you can add it to the Menu, and you can put a shortcut on the desktop. In Cinnamon, right ...

Re: Cinnamon Just Crashed, You are currently running in fallback mode.

I would start by checking Driver Manager and see if you are running the recommended driver. If not, switch to the recommended driver. If that doesn't do it, open a terminal and enter inxi -Fxz, then copy/paste whatever that spits out into your next post.

Re: Cinnamon Just Crashed, You are currently running in fallback mode.

Don't reinstall the system. I'm not sure what the solution is, but I am sure I have seen people post with this problem before, and there is a solution. A forums search should turn it up.

Re: Update BIOS without Windows?

phd21: I haven't tried #1 as this laptop does not have a Phoenix BIOS. If all else fails, I might try it anyway. Running Windows from USB doesn't work for me because I don't have any Windows to put on the USB. I may wind up having to purchase Windows if all else fails. Oh how I would hate to do that...
