Re: Stuck on login page

So I gave up and reinstalled Cinnamon 18.1 and voila all is working. Not a clue why.

In order to save my data, I installed an old hard drive alongside the existing one and did a fresh iso install on that hard drive and boot into it.

Re: [SOLVED] Cannot Login (login loop)

I've had this happen to me. I used "sudo startx" and it started the login loop. 🤨 when running sudo with startx it changes the permissions on .Xauthority file. I had to change the file permissions of .Xauthority from root back to the my account. It fixed the issue for me. Can you explain to a newbi...

I had the same issue and using the alternate driver seemed to reduce the cpu usage in System Monitor somewhat.

Re: After Samba 'update' cannot see network computers [SOLVED]

This is so frustrating.

So to fix this all I did was open Software Manager, uninstall Samba and System-config-samba and reconnect to the network computer.

After Samba 'update' cannot see network computers [SOLVED]

Why does this always happen? After I foolishly allowed a "3" samba 'update' to install, I can no longer see any of my networked computers. I get the infamous “Unable to mount location Failed to retrieve share list from server: Connection timed out" error message. I can see the Linux box from my Wind...

[SOLVED] CD/DVD drive and 3.5 floppy not detected

Since I installed Mint 18.1 neither my CD/DVD drive nor my 3.5 floppy drive is detected.

All of the libdvd stuff is installed in the Software Manager.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Re: CD/DVD drive and 3.5 floppy not detected and now USBs

Did some update just change how USB drives are mounted?? Too new kernels may not be the best choice for using floppies. Thanks for the response, but I do not quite understand it. If a new update did indeed cause all these problems how do I figure out which update is the guilty bastard and undo it?

Re: [I GIVE UP] Wine problem installing PolderBitS 9.0

Hi "Banzai Beagle", I just read your post and the good replies to it. Here are my thoughts on this as well. What exactly are you trying to do with this application? Why not use the excellent "Audacity", "Kwave", Ardour, Rosegarden, Mixxx?, or another Linux application for doing what you used to do ...
