Re: Missing desktop icons after 18.2 upgrade

The solution I found for V18.3 is the following:
Click on the upper-left icon & select "configure desktop/wallpaper" & change the
layout combobox to "Folder View", then click on "apply"

Update Manager does not update nvidia module with a new kernel

Update Manager does not update the nvidia module when a new kernel gets added. I know why it does this, 8) but I would like some magic spells to put in a shell in order to add the correct nvidia driver module to the new kernel via /lib/modules/*. :cry: Rebooting into a new kernel will not display th...

GTK programs failing...

How do I get rid of this problem:
Gtk-ERROR **: GTK+ 2.x symbols detected. Using GTK+ 2.x and GTK+ 3 in the same process is not supported
I'm guessing that simply removing GTK+-2 packages is gonna break a lot of running programs! :(

[SOLVED]: Re: vlc error in Mint V19 (Tara)

I believe that I've really fixed vlc this time. I renamed the .config/vlc directory to .config/vlc.broken and now I'm able to start vlc by selecting a video in the caja file manager.

SOLVED: Re: vlc error in Mint V19 (Tara)

I found a fix for this problem, I renamed /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/vlc/lua to /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/vlc/lua.broken, then I was able to view a video! 8)
I don't know what these are for, but I'll guess I'll find out when some other part of vlc doesn't work! :roll:

Re: Kernel compilation fails!

Furthermore, synaptic and the software update manager install linux-headers-GoofVersionString in their own /usr/src directory, which is separate from /usr/src/linux-source-AnotherGoofyVersionString.
