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

Just wanted to add that the full error is:

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

Strange, several people seem to experience the same problem, but for me (64 bit 19.1 mate on laptop) timeshift functions perfectly well. Is there something common to all who do experience the problem ? Robert One of the common themes, we all did upgrades to 19.1 and then it started to fail. Timeshi...

Bump.

I opened a bug on Timeshift's Github site but is there anything the Mint dev's can do to assist? I removed/purged Timeshift and added the programs PPA and installed the latest version and same, exact error.

Same thing just happened to me. Was cruising along with Mint 19 and everything was working perfectly. Upgraded to 19.1 minutes ago and noticed Timeshift is dead. When running 'timeshift-launcher' from the terminal, this is the error: ERROR:arraylist.c:1400:gee_array_list_real_remove_at: assertion fa...

Any way to restrict all applications from accessing a folder except one?

Using Linux Mint 19 On my server, I have my main MDADM array /dev/md0 (mounted as /mnt/data I believe) and every night, it does a backup to /dev/md127 (mounted as /mnt/backupdrive). Just as another layer of security, is there a way I can limit ALL applications, except my backup program, from accessi...

Re: [SOLVED] How dangerous is it to update software on my own?

One way to get the latest versions of software is to use a PPA. If anyone chooses to use a PPA, there are two things to check. A PPA might be supported by the software developers or it might not. I use a PPA only if recommended by the software developers. The same for using different repositories a...

Re: How dangerous is it to update software on my own?

You should generally be careful what you install but with library packages specifically for your version of Mint/Ubuntu ("bionic") there should be little risk unless they mess up. Also this one specifically is for running software usually originating from Windows so there's no risk of overlap with ...

Re: Why does opening a txt file peg out one of my CPU cores?

Guess I'll start looking for a new txt editor. Any suggestions? "leafpad" works great on big files, has basic functions and a typical GUI. Thanks for the recommendation!

Re: Why does opening a txt file peg out one of my CPU cores?

I don't see any errors in dmesg or any log files to indicate that something is broken so I'm thinking this is just expected behavior? That isn't necessarily true. What you could try is creating a new text file with random copy/pasted text to around 2MB in size. If the problem persists with that new...

Using Mint 19 and I think it came with Mono version 4.6.something. One of the programs I use from time to time received an update and it needs Mono to be on the latest version (5.8.?).

Did you check what entries precede those "interrupt took too long" messages?
Ever since posting that, the problem has yet to return (knock on wood). Other than applying system updates to Mint, the other thing I did different was to increase my inotify number to fix an unrelated? issue.

Mint 19, fully up to date and CPU is an i7 7700K. The weird problem I'm seeing (maybe this is normal?).... is when I open a 1.2MB txt file with Xed, it opens just fine. I can scroll up and down no problem. But, the second I click the search button to look for something, one of my CPU cores shoots to...
