Re: Bug with cinnamon?

Thanks. I have tried other drivers, current setup minimises the problem only happens every few days. Guess I will have to live with it.

Re: Bug with cinnamon?

that's interesting to know, thanks. Apart from being frustrating at times it is not the end of the world. 17.1 didn't do it for me and each install has been a completely fresh install, and with 18.3 it was doing it with the default install.

just curious more than anything else.

The windowed interface seems to run out of memory and partly freezes sometimes for minutes, applications keep running, the display seems slowed to locked while hard drive spins. Am i right in thinking t...

Re: Mint on 2 in 1 devices

Indeed, which is why I am not looking at Apple for my next device.

What I am really hoping to find is any recommendations from people who have actually been using a 2 in 1 device running some form of Linux.

Mint on 2 in 1 devices

I am looking at replacing my old Macbook with a newer 2 in 1 device.

I was wondering if anyone had any luck or ideas about any particular brands or models. really not keen to go back to Windows if it can be avoided.

Re: hardware freezing

Well all seems to be working well.

The external USB i think was the problem, not sure why drawing too much power ???

I cleaned the cpu fan (very clogged with dust) now runs at a comfortable 52 when under moderate load.

Thanks to all for the help and patience with my lack of knowledge.

Re: hardware freezing

Clixtrix - I see what you mean about that being high. I will investigate further. Even if it is not the cause of the problem it is something I need to address. Thanks I was unaware of this being considered high for moderate loads.

Re: hardware freezing

I had a usb hard drive plugged in for a backup drive. It was a drive that powers of the USB port. Since disconnecting it the problem has not recurred. i wonder could that have been the cause?

Re: hardware freezing

The last time all that was done was in a big over haul in 2015, including new video card and ram. It really wans't idle doing a backup and playing a video. However 72 is not that high when the ambient temperature is well into the 90s. Living in Sydney Australia we get some hot humid weather in late ...

Re: hardware freezing

Sadly that made no difference, still shuddering (little freezes where images, mouse etc just stop for a split second).

Re: hardware freezing

Well the result of updating the x server and using the latest kernel has been no lock ups . What happens now are temporary lock ups for 30 seconds or so, and then the screen returns to normal. It does not seem to matter what I have running and it will happen a few times and then not at all for hours...

Re: hardware freezing

Thank you for the help. I have done as you suggested. I am hoping that may fix the problem. However I could not work out how to remove the old kernels, did not seem to be an option in grub. It now looks like this. System: Host: wayne-P55-USB3 Kernel: 4.4.0-116-generic x86_64 (64 bit gcc: 5.4.0) Desk...

( solved) hardware freezing

From time to time my computer freezes. Nothing on mouse or keyboard works. Sometimes it will just return to normal at other times a hard reset is needed. I am running 18:3 Cinnamon. It happens every 2 to 3 days otherwise I leave the machine on 24/7. I figure it is probably a hardware fault or driver...

Re: Networking Observation about Samba and plea for help

Thank you that worked just fine.

So to avoid this problem I need to create the share from a different user or change ownership?
