Re: VeraCrypt Problem

Yes, I will cross post here with any info from the VeraCrypt forum. I'm actually surprised that nobody so far has even commented yet on the VeraCrypt forum. I agree I can't be the only one, but you never know. There are settings in VeraCrypt that I don't understand enough to want to mess with. Two a...

VeraCrypt Problem

Lately when using VeraCrypt, my system starts to respond very slowly with long delays after a click, and memory usage goes to max (16Gb), and swap is maxed out as well (according to System Manager). This happens when transferring files to VeraCrypt containers, not out of them. Transfer speed into co...

Re: HDMI TV Hookup Problem

Thank you.

She says that fixed it.

She has one more question.

How do you set it so that the computer screen goes off when the TV is on?

She says it is automatic in Windows 10.

HDMI TV Hookup Problem (SOLVED)

I've installed Mint 18.2 Cinnamon on an ASUS X541NA-RS91-CB Notebook PC, Model #: X541N for someone wanting to switch over from Windows 10. Due to her need to have Windows 10 for MS Office for work related items, I installed Mint alongside WIN 10 as a dual boot system. Everything seemed good when I ...

Re: Cinnamon Crashes Since Upgrade to 18.2

Re: Cinnamon Crashes Since Upgrade to 18.2

OK, well all I was asking is if people who know more than me about the inner workings of Linux think I should report this - I want to be of help if I can to the developers, but I also don't want to waste people's time with trivial issues. You did not read a complaint. In my first post on this I desc...

Re: Cinnamon Crashes Since Upgrade to 18.2

Cosmo, not sure if your comment is referring to me or Spacecadet, but if me, I wasn't asking for support, just wondering out loud if this should be reported as a bug - that's why I posted in the Linux chat section.

Re: Cinnamon Crashes Since Upgrade to 18.2

I guess since at least 2 of us are having that, many more probably are and they are aware of it in the Linux Mint Corporate Headquarters.

Cinnamon Crashes Since Upgrade to 18.2

About 3 or 4 times since the upgrade to 18.2, I get this: " Cinnamon just crashed. You are currently running in Fallback Mode. Do you want to restart Cinnamon? " I click " yes " and it restarts and all is well - no big deal at all. Is this something I should report somewhere, or ...

And it is MUCH appreciated. Bluetooth was the one and only area where Mint (Linux?, Ubuntu?) was not very good in my experience.

Kernel Question

No idea what category to post this in. Just updated to 18.2, and all is well, but I notice now there is a 4.8 and 4.10 series of Kernels installed when I view the Kernels in the update manager. I did not intentionally install them, but I think they came with the updates that showed up after the 18.2...

I have Windows 10 guest running flawlessly in VB in 18.1 Cinnamon as host, and though I would like to upgrade to 18.2 when it comes out, I would really like to know if anyone has had issues with 18.2 with Win 10 in VB.
