Re: Music files mess up cinnamon taskbar

A fresh install of linux mint 19 solved the garbling.
Maybe for not using proprietary video driver now.

Re: FLAC files mess up cinnamon taskbar

I can add that mp3 files give the same problem and that it happens with VLC as well. Also running in VirtualBox. Only with cinnamon desktop. Openbox, freedesktop, xfce and MATE din't show the problem

Re: LM 19 Cinnamon - Downgrading?

If you like xfce desktop my advice is to do a clean install of MX Linux 17.1 With cinnamon desktop mint 18 was using mu 4G RAM with firefox. LMDE 3 cinnamon was a bit lighter, but now, (never I liked xfce) xfce 4 on MX Linux is comparable in completeness with cinnamon. But less resources needed. I d...

(solved) LMDE 3 MATE start menu resizing

I tried to resize the start menu with dconf-editor. Changed the entry org/mate/mate-menu/plugins/applications width and height.
But no effect.
I want to make my start menu taller and wider.
This should be possible?

Re: Clementine crashes Cinnamon

Now I run LMDE 3 Cindy Cinnamon. Clementine taskbar-bug still exists. Don't like Mate desktop. Many operations I don't know how to do graphically. Like open a program in a searchbox in the menu, open a folder as root, make a file executable. I really like clementine for its database handling. When c...

Re: Cinnamon Menu sometimes scrambled - how to restart menu?

It happens to me playing FLAC files.
I think it has something to do with the font of the taskbar. Something happens when titles of songs are displayed in the taskbar, guess.
Happens with mint 17.2 and still after upgrading to 17.3

Re: (SOLVED) Boot Error: Press S to skip mounting or M for m

I made the second partition after installation of mint. First with the Disks program which didn't work out. Then I tried to automount a pendrive with writing permissions and I messed up the fstab file even more. Making a backup of fstab before using the Disk program would have saved us the trouble.

Re: Boot Error: Press S to skip mounting or M for manual rec

Is it not like this that the text after the "#" sign is just a remark?
The "Press S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery" message has disappeared now after changing to the next line:
# /media/eric/data was on /dev/sda3 during installation
Thanks a lot!

On mint 17.2 rafaela the same problem. Panel messed up. Only with some FLAC albums. Lowering the screen resolution doesn't solve the problem either.
