Re: Wrong theme at the first login

Unlikely. But if you apply updates with something different than the update manager, then the level protection system gets circumvented, and this can give troubles. (The level system has a meaning.) Yes I usually use a very lazy script: #!/bin/sh sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -y sud...

Re: Wrong theme at the first login

I think I might have identified a suspect: the problem seems to appear when I boot the computer after shutting it down with sudo shutdown -h now (which, for me, is part of a script that updates the packages and turns off the laptop). Do you think it's possible that this is indeed the cause? Would th...

Re: Wrong theme at the first login

I really do not understand what can cause this intermittent problem! Some changed settings on some place? It is impossible to make more than a guess. I agree with you... In fact I am guessing too :) As far as I know, I have changed nothing. In the worst case, I can live with this "problem". But I w...

Re: Wrong theme at the first login

Sorry for the slow reply but I have been quite busy.

For example, I have just booted the computer without changing anything and now the login was immediate and with no problems at all. I really do not understand what can cause this intermittent problem!

Re: Wrong theme at the first login

Create a fresh new user account and log into it. Same problem there? I created a new °standard° account, rebooted the computer and logged in with the new account. Everything went fine. Then I logged out and logged back in with my account. Fine again. I have to say that I don't have the problem of t...

Wrong theme at the first login

Hello, I have been experiencing a weird issue since quite a long time ago (I couldn't say precisely when). Basically, when I boot my laptop and type the password, it takes a long time for the desktop to appear and, when it does, the theme is wrong: the icons are different, the panel is different, et...

Re: Problems with installing new kernel

Did you check from: show -> linux kernels? (Hope I'm translating from my language even remotely accurately) I'm not sure about kernel availability in 17.2 though and overlooked that when writing my original reply. Yes, I checked and the last version available is 4.4.0-72. I have never had problems ...

I don't see them. The last version I see is the one I have: 4.4.0-72. May be because I am on Mint 17.2?

Problems with installing new kernel

Hello, I don't know if this is the right section for posting this, so I apologize if it's not. I am currently running Linux Mint 17.2 with kernel 4.4.0-72 but I would like to update it to the latest stable version (for problems with the graphics card). So I downloaded the appropriate deb packages fr...

Re: Nouveau failed in inxi

I don't think the nouveau drivers can handle dual-graphics systems. Thus the "failed". Have you thought about trying an Ubuntu PPA to get newer proprietary drivers for your Nvidia GPU ? Yes, I have tried using the PPA graphics-drivers to install the drivers (whose latest version is the 381). Everyt...

Nouveau failed in inxi

Hello everyone, when I type the command inxi -G to check my graphics setup, I see FAILED: nouveau . I read around and some people say it's normal and it's a known bug, but still, I would like to be certain that I'm using the right drivers. Here is the output of some useful commands: $ uname -r 4.4.0...

Re: Nvidia driver and dual monitor setup

Important update: After a lot of tinkering, uninstalling, reinstalling, updating to a new kernel, breaking everything, etc., I managed to install the nvidia 378 driver but this broke my dual monitor setup. First, I used the command sudo apt-get install nvidia-378 nvidia-settings nvidia-prime nvidia...

Xorg hangs randomly at boot

Hello everybody, I have noticed this problem happens since I tried tinkering with the graphic card drivers, so it is certainly my fault: sometimes (apparently at random) when I boot my laptop I don't get the usual login screen where I have to type my password. After the Mint logo I only have a non-b...

Nvidia driver and dual monitor setup

Hi everybody, I will try to be brief but clear. Final goal: Install Nvidia drivers and use a dual monitor setup: the built-in display of my laptop and an external monitor connected to the HDMI port. Current situation and setup: I am on Mint 17.2, kernel 4.4.0-53-generic (but I also have 3.16.0-38-ge...

Re: Limited WiFi bit rate

Yes, it is already set like this. WPA2 Personal (PSK) + AES. Maybe I could try my laptop with another (fast) network, like at work, to see if it reaches a higher speed. If it doesn't, then the problem is likely to be my card. Otherwise, the wireless part of my router is probably the bottleneck, even...

Re: Limited WiFi bit rate

Better than 40 Mbps, but not by much.... You might still try a newer kernel. Is 4.4.0-57 already available for Mint 17.x? Actually, 40Mbps is the speed I obtain with an online speed test, and that has not changed. The other speed I was talking about is the bit rate I obtain via iwconfig , and that ...

Re: Limited WiFi bit rate

I tried disabling IPv6 and setting the BSSID. The router was already on 'n only'. Then I rebooted. Now the bit rate is 57.8Mbps :(
