LibreOffice 6 crashes immediately in Linux Mint 19 XFCE

After working flawlessly for months, LibreOffice 6 has started crashing immediately upon launch in Linux Mint 19 XFCE: libreoffice-crash-dialog.png This occurs whether I launch LibreOffice itself or any of the LibreOffice applications. Eventually I completely uninstalled LibreOffice and then reinsta...

Re: GUI Lagging on fresh Mint 19.1

I can't offer much of a solution in Mate. I experienced the same thing - particularly the lag in displaying typed text in any window (Xed, terminal, whatever).

Eventually I got so fed up with it I wiped the installation and replaced it with Linux Mint 19.1 XFCE. No problem so far.

Re: Local network hosts not resolved since Mint 19

@lucky62

Have you tried changing the symlink '/etc/resolv.conf' from '/run/systemd/resolve/stub-resolv.conf' to '/run/systemd/resolve/resolv.conf'?

This worked for me:

Code: Select all

sudo rm /etc/resolv.conf
sudo ln -s /run/systemd/resolve/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf

Re: Local network hosts not resolved since Mint 19

I believe that systemd-resolved will change the link to /etc/resolv.conf on the next restart. If you're going to use Network Manager, you need to make the DNS changes there. I've restarted the computer several times since changing /etc/resolv.conf to point to /etc/systemd/resolve/resolv.conf, and t...

Re: Local network hosts not resolved since Mint 19

127.0.0.53 is used by systemd-resolved; mine shows the same thing. What does nmcli device show return? Exactly the same whether name resolution is working or not. Before changing the /etc/resolv.conf symlink (name resolution not working): ll /etc/resolv.conf lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 37 Nov 3 16:32 /e...

Re: Local network hosts not resolved since Mint 19

Ok, it seems that systemd-resolved creates two files each with different nameserver info, /run/systemd/resolve/stub-resolv.conf and /run/systemd/resolve/resolv.conf, the contents of which are as follows: /run/systemd/resolve/stub-resolv.conf lists a nameserver 127.0.0.53. Why? No idea. It's obviousl...

Local network hosts not resolved since Mint 19

I have a local network of (currently) six computers. One is running dnsmasq in Ubuntu Server 16.04 to provide static addresses and host names for the network client computers. Client computers running Linux Mint 18.3 XFCE resolve local host names perfectly without any manual configuration required. ...

Yeah, I'd go back to version whatever of Firefox in a heartbeat. Haven't figured out how, yet. I use PaleMoon browser ( http://www.palemoon.org// ) for most of my browsing. It's a fork of Firefox that's sticking with XUL addons. Linux builds are available from the PaleMoon forum at https://forum.pa...

Re: Why is Grub ignoring my 5 second timeout to boot?

Have you the updated the grub menu by doing 'sudo update-grub'? Changes to '/etc/default/grub' do not become active until you do so.

Re: Setting up links to remote directories

Sorry, I was just using the /home..Documents thing as an example. So the mount point for the Documents drive is /media/documents. The 'chown' command takes the form 'chown -R -H userid /path/to/folder' or 'chown -R -H userid:usergroup /path/to/folder' so for /media/documents it will be 'sudo chown -...

as you can see, I tried varying options with no luck. What am I doing wrong? Using sshfs to login automatically requires using public key security instead of a password.
