Re: Why is Cinnamon amazingly slow at generating JPG thumbnails?

Could you also try this from Linux Mint 19.2 Cinnamon? It would be good to know if you experience the same issue with the new version. I can't quite follow why Caja's thumbnailer would be slow on Cinnamon and fast on MATE. Can you confirm that you also tried Nemo on MATE and that is was fast on tha...

[SOLVED] Why is Cinnamon amazingly slow at generating JPG thumbnails?

Update: I feel a little silly now.... upgrading to Mint 19.2 fixed it. Thanks xenopeek! Been using Mint (Cinnamon desktop) for a while now. 18.x, 19.x.... I absolutely love Cinnamon but it completely fails when it comes to being able to QUICKLY draw thumbnails when I point the file manager at a shar...

Re: Timeshift broke ever since upgrading from 19 to 19.1

I saw the links to the error on the Github page; they're referencing an old version (v17.2). Sorry, but I'm at a loss - I can't replicate this error and have no idea where to turn next. There must be something else going on, or this error would have popped up for a lot more users. EDIT: just saw th...

Re: Timeshift (on Tessa, LM 19.1) - ERROR:arraylist.c:1199:gee_array_list_real_get: assertion failed: (index < _size)

Not sure I follow you. I have a boot SSD and another SSD (both XFS). TS is configured to do a simple rsync snapshot to the 2nd SSD every day and keep 3 backups. I -DO- have 2, MDADM RAID arrays but I've never used TS to backup or read from either array. It's always been just from 1 SSD to the other...

I think the raid array might be part of my problem. I used the bootable usb to open TS and he last successful backup was back when I made the software raid. I wish it told me that.
That just makes the mystery even more bizarre then. Doesn't look like there is a common theme among any of us.

Re: Timeshift (on Tessa, LM 19.1) - ERROR:arraylist.c:1199:gee_array_list_real_get: assertion failed: (index < _size)

Perhaps the issue is on systems with software raid-arrays? I set-up a software raid5 with 3 hard drives about a month or two ago; however, I never configured Timeshift or any other backup solution to backup the array. I installed Mint 19.0 about a year or so ago. At that time, I also set up the MDA...

Re: Timeshift (on Tessa, LM 19.1) - ERROR:arraylist.c:1199:gee_array_list_real_get: assertion failed: (index < _size)

Raid setup on 32 bit? Interesting. Seems to be choking on the raid part though, only very briefly looking at the source I'd wager a guess that this is the culprit: https://github.com/teejee2008/timeshift/blob/master/src/Utility/Device.vala#L592 Not sure I follow you.

Re: Timeshift (on Tessa, LM 19.1) - ERROR:arraylist.c:1199:gee_array_list_real_get: assertion failed: (index < _size)

Tried running TS via strace: Run this sudo mv /etc/timeshift.json /etc/timeshift.json.bak and then try loading Timeshift again. If that doesn't help we'd need a more detailed trace: sudo strace -fyo timeshift_trace.txt timeshift --list And then compress the generated timeshift_trace.txt and attach ...

OK, question for everyone having this error: are you all using Cinnamon as your DE? I've been using XFCE since 19.0 and can't replicate this Timeshift problem. I'm going to test my development VM today (has Cinnamon, MATE, and XFCE installed); maybe there's a link. This really sucks - this software...

Yeah. I'm getting the exact same issue. This machine in particular has been running without intervention for about a month. So this issue is recent. It's also devastating. I think a recent update has caused this issue as I cannot see how anything else could have happened. Also, I really need to res...

Typing the name of a program to quickly find it is different after 19.1

Before I upgraded to Mint 19.1 from 19.0, if I clicked on the start button and started typing 'sys', System Monitor would be the top choice or one of the top choices. Now, this seems to be busted. When I start typing 'sys', other things are at the top of the list and System Monitor is towards the bo...

Re: Timeshift broke ever since upgrading from 19 to 19.1

I cloned my boot SSD and put that in a test system. I booted Mint 19.1 from a thumb drive and was able to successfully restore back to 19.0. I did the upgrade again and same, exact problem...... TimeShift dies. I want to take advantage of some of the things 19.1 brings me so I really need to figure...

You might not be able to use a system snap from 19.0 or earlier for 19.1 Yes you can, I have repeatedly upgraded LM19.0 to LM19.1 and then timeshifted back to LM19.0 while trying to sort out a problem with LM19.1.

Re: Timeshift broke ever since upgrading from 19 to 19.1

What do you mean by a busted timeshift? What is the behaviour you are seeing? What is it not doing that you want it to do? Its fully functional in 19.1. I upgraded to 19.1 as well from 19.0 and Timeshift is working fine for me. I'd just reset your settings, destination location, frequency etc. Then...
