Re: Some Crazy Issues in my Multiboot Setup

The errors you report are specific to Manjaro. Thanks for your reply. No. they are not Manjaro specific. My problemas are related to it, however Linux Mint is heavily affected! Perhaps it's wise to ask them. Sure thing. So I did. https://forum.manjaro.org/t/some-crazy-issues-in-my-multiboot-setup/

Re: Some issues in the 18.2 Beta

Installing 2 desktops is often the source of much trouble. You cannot blame anything, if this does not works as expected. By using VB I also do not understand, why you try this at all. A second (or third, fourth, ...) VM is not really a problem. The purpose of trying installing Cinnamon on top of M...

Re: Some issues in the 18.2 Beta

After doing that, I selected "Insert the virtualbox Guest Additions CD" and ran it. No reboot of the VM in between? I told you to do so in my advice. Uhm... actually I think I did reboot. I don't remember well, I did this some days ago, and I had already tried before, but I think I did re...

Re: Some issues in the 18.2 Beta

Well, I happen to be running the latest version of VirtualBox-5.1.22-115126-Win (and Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-5.1.22-115126) You seem to mix the extension pack with the guest additions. (This happens rather often.) I did not write about the extension pack, as this is not related with the...

Re: My mom is 70 and is thinking about going with Linux Mint. She's on the fence. What should I tell her to convince her

Well, with everyone sharing their experiences, I think I'll also tell everyone else my story. My mom uses a very old (2002 or so) pentium 4, it had Windows XP installed. It doesn't anymore. Since it's such an old piece of hardware, it's slow and it was even slower and clunckier with windows, so I to...

Some issues in the 18.2 Beta

I found a couple of issues: 1) Linux Mint Cinnamon When running it on the latest virtualbox, it falls back to run in software rendering mode. that means there's some sort of bug with the virtualbox native drivers since for example 17.3 can run a live session without the problem. 2) Linux Mint Mate. ...

Re: PlayOnLinux Bug

That bug report only applies to HiDPI screens, and I see no sign that you're using one. Huh? uhm, I took those screenshots. They're from my other laptop. I don't know if a Full HD 1080p 15'' qualifies as HiDPI but I happen to be affected. If that bug does apply to you, which I doubt, please read th...

Hi there! I was having the same issue you have! I wanted transparency in the window decorations and panels. Editing some themes that had transparency I found out that it was just a matter of editing the panel image with GIMP and since it's already a PNG, adding the alpha channel and tweaking it to w...

Re: Worrying about the roadmap.

It would probably help (someone) if you'd explain why you care for the computer:/// place. The answer is simple: because I use it and I am used to have it. Due to the way I usually make partitions in my computers I usually have many partitions and one of them is a big "Data D" partition, ...

The exact same thing happened to me in Linux Mint 18.1 Serena 32-bit. I went to screensaver preferences. I chose the screensaver named Mobius. Immediately, everything froze except the cursor. Therefore, I rebooted the computer. But the first time the screensaver kicked in, the whole computer froze ...
