Re: Video glitch every 30 seconds

Hi there. In case the information could help anyone, I was too optimistic in the message above. The picture glitch is still there. It disappeared not because the setting was updated, but because the the computer was restarted (or because the laptop screen was open, both make the glitch disappear). N...

Re: Smaller fonts after 09/01/2019 Cinnamon upgrade

Thank you. That indeed changes the font in the bottom bar for a bolder one.

[Solved] Smaller fonts after 09/01/2019 Cinnamon upgrade

Hi, Today, the 9th of january 2019, a new version of Cinnamon was published, and the update manager upgraded a lot of packages. After a reboot, the font size of the task bar became much smaller than before, and I can't find how to make it larger without increasing the font size of the icons at the s...

Re: Video is less fluid in LMDE3 than in LMDE2

Solved ! The culprit was the Intel SpeedStep setting in the setup of the motherboard, that was enabled instead of disabled. Of course it has nothing to do with the LMDE upgrade. It just turns out that it's been a while that my laptop has got no more battery inside, and the little permanent battery o...

Re: Video is less fluid in LMDE3 than in LMDE2

I did not install it myself (or it was years ago), but I see in the software manager that it is currently installed.

Re: Video is less fluid in LMDE3 than in LMDE2

Thank you for the quick answer. First, I think that I've got two completely different problems in one : -the "judder", that drops some frames here and there and depends on the size of the video window, and doesn't affect the cursor of the text editor. -the "freeze", that occurs only every 15 seconds...

Video glitch every 30 seconds on HDMI output

Hi, I have just upgraded LMDE2 to LMDE3 thanks to the tutorial. Several things improved, but here is something that worked better in LMDE2 : full screen videos or games (youtube, VLC, emulator in dosbox...) are juddering in LDME3 while they were fluid under LMDE2. Hardware : Laptop MSI Intel Core i7...

Re: Hangs on LM logo while booting

Hi, I managed to solve the problem, so far. I tried all the advanced options in the boot menu : Linux 3.11 instead of 3.16 : worse. It hangs all the same, and ctrl-alt-del doesn't even work, while it works while 3.16 is hanging. First alternate option for linux 3.16 : no difference Second alternate ...

[SOLVED] Hangs on LM logo while booting

Hi, I've got LMDE2 installed on my laptop for years, but today, all of sudden, it hangs while booting. The screen displays the LM logo and won't get further. I'm writing this from the same computer, with an old LMDE live version that is on a USB device. There were two updates installed yesterday. I ...

XHCI mode = Enabled Legacy USB support = Enabled BIOS USB 3.0 support = Enabled XHCI Hand off = Enabled EHCI Hand o...

Re: After upgrade, MSI laptop freezes during shut down.

Thanks ! Wow ! There are indeed a lot of info in syslog.1 So much that I don't know where to begin. I've isolated the part that was recorded during the shutdown (see attachment). It ends abruptly with many \00 chars, obviously because I eventually forced the electrical shutdown, and that interrupted...
