Re: Cinnamon crashes with Nvidia drivers

Hi, I have purged all the Nvidia packages thanks to your tip. Then I installed the 418 driver again. I rebooted. Then I installed Nvidia-settings. But when I run it, I get the following message : temp.png If I click on Valider, I only have the two items that you can see in the menu. So I installed n...

Re: Cinnamon crashes with Nvidia drivers

EDIT : I wrote the below message before reading yours, Tenebris_Umbra, I'll try your suggestion in the next days if I have the time. I was planning to pause my trials at installing the nvidia drivers for a while. I don't know if the last trial was successful or not, but since there was no improvemen...

Re: Cinnamon crashes with Nvidia drivers

Hi, I restarted from a system backup without the nvidia drivers. I unistalled all the nvidia packages that I could find using both the software manager and the synaptic manager. Then I installed the nvidia-driver v 418 from the backports repository. The result is the same as before : the installatio...

Re: Cinnamon crashes with Nvidia drivers

I the sutiation above, I have installed the nvidia-driver from the application manager. But there are some news. In order to give it a try, I restored the sy...

Re: Cinnamon crashes with Nvidia drivers

By the way, the system information says that it is a desktop, but this is wrong. It is a laptop. :)

Re: Cinnamon crashes with Nvidia drivers

Hi, I have reinstalled the Nvidia-driver package after the new version of Cinnamon was installed. The problem is still here. I disabled the Fast Boot option in the motherboard setup, still KO. I uninstalled the xserver-xorg-video-nouveau package with the application manager, still KO. I switched the...

Re: Cinnamon crashes with Nvidia drivers

Thanks for the hint. I don't have a secure boot option in my motherboard setup. I have a fast boot option, though, and also an UEFI / Legacy boot option, but my Linux won't boot in UEFI, only in Legacy. I'll try to mess with these options next time I install the drivers (currently, I have again rest...

Re: Cinnamon crashes with Nvidia drivers

Thank you for the hints. I restarted from the system backup of yesterday, without the nvidia drivers. I have looked at the Firefox config panel, and before even activating the option, I noticed that layers.acceleration.disabled was manually set to FALSE. I set it back to TRUE, and it helps ! This vi...

Cinnamon crashes with Nvidia drivers

Hello ! I'm a long time user of Linux Mint Debian. Most things run fine, and the OS is the fastest and simplest I've been using. There's one thing that I'd like to get right : I'd like to have Nvidia drivers working, so that I can have better performance watching 60 fps videos on youtube in full HD,...

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...

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.

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 ...
