Re: Updating to the newest drivers crashes cinnamon

Thanks jim-m and chunkyg, Although update manager identified 304.131 as the previous driver, apt-cache showpkg nvidia-304 did not display this, only 304.132 and 304.117 which left me unable to install it until chunkyg pointed out that the cache would have the .deb package and thus everything install...

Re: Cinnamon crashes after updating Nvidia driver to 367.57

My driver update was to 304.132 on the same day (probably older machine) and it also gave serious problems. Everything up to and including the log in screen is fine but after login I get a blank screen with active cursor. The system is running as the cursor changes from arrow to bar as I go over the...

Re: 17.3 upgrade Cinnamon crashes

After persevering with fallback after each Cinnamon crash, I have installed Mate and everything works perfectly with this. I guess I will wait for the fix to Cinnamon or maybe even stay with Mate and remove Cinnamon altogether.

Re: 17.3 upgrade Cinnamon crashes

Thank you for your report. I was wondering if I was the only one with this problem but now I expect there will be others popping up. Something has changed with 17.3 as I had no problems with 17.2 and as my machine boots correctly I don't think nomodeset will help although I have tried it. The fact t...

Re: Was Linux Mint 17.2 more stabile the 17.3 ?

I would have to say that for me 17.3 is very unstable and I would warn people that it is unsafe to just upgrade. At the least the iso should be downloaded and your machine run up with it to see if it works at all before trying the upgrade. The details of my Cinnamon crash is in my recent post "17.3 ...

Re: 17.3 upgrade Cinnamon crashes

Some further information I downloaded LinuxMint 17.3 to a memory stick and ran it up. I got the same problem as I did with the upgrade in Nouveaux mode i.e. The screen tears and the machine locks up after about 30 seconds of use. The machine works perfectly with LinuxMint 17.2 The machine works perf...

17.3 upgrade Cinnamon crashes

Hello All, my first post on the forum so I hope I am in the right place. After successfully upgrading my 32 bit Linux Mint from 17.2 I upgraded my 64 bit machine. Boot up looks good with the normal screen proclaiming 17.3 but unfortunately it crashes Cinnamon on the first mouse click I make. I feel ...
