Re: Using Docker images for Linux Mint

Hi @virtimus I tried to build your image but got the following error (I am a docker noob so may be my fault): C:\Users\WeldenD\repos\i3c\dockerfiles\xrdp\mint>docker build -t tara . Sending build context to Docker daemon 136.7kB Step 1/54 : FROM i3c/base/ubuntu18/mint as builder Get https://registry...

Sonya, Rhythmbox, and iPhone (the eternal quest)

Like thousands before me, I am unable to get Rhythmbox to see my iPhone (10.3.3). Nemo has no problem accessing the device photos. From the terminal, running idevicepair validate outputs SUCCESS: Validated pairing with device .... but running ideviceinfo outputs GnuTLS error: Error in the pull funct...

Re: Sarah Cinnamon running without video hardware acceleration under Virtual Box

Hi folks, the noob is back ;-) As I have been following the conversations a thought has occurred that I want to throw out and get your take on it. If you look at my original screen shot that I posted, you can see the Cinnamon notification that Software Rendering is in use side by side with glxinfo s...

Re: Sarah Cinnamon running without video hardware acceleration under Virtual Box

I do appreciate you and Perry trying to help. People like you are what keep me plugging along in the open source world. I am disappointed that something that worked in Mint 17 and older versions of VB no longer does work in Mint 18 and latest VB. But the world moves on and leaves some things behind ...

Re: Sarah Cinnamon running without video hardware acceleration under Virtual Box

If the solution requires having virtualization enabled in the BIOS, then I will have to revert back to Mint 17 or some other distribution. The only reason I run a 32 bit instance instead of 64 bit is because 32 bit clients do not require BIOS enablement. It is really the only advantage of a 32 bit c...

Re: Sarah Cinnamon running without video hardware acceleration under Virtual Box

Yes, that is what I did: I have upgraded VBox to 5.0.24 and updated the Guest Additions to 5.0.24 using the ISO in the VBox Programs File directory on the host. Software rendering seems to have returned. I see at least one other report of this exact issue with Sarah and VB GA 5.0.24 on the VB forums...

Re: Sarah Cinnamon running without video hardware acceleration under Virtual Box

Host is Windows 7 64 bit. Only package I have installed is Plank from Mint software downloads. I am also having issues with Elementary Freya; I have to tty login and restart lightdm to even get a gui. At least Mint is better than that. One other thing which may be relevant: I am running 32 bit Mint....

Re: Sarah Cinnamon running without video hardware acceleration under Virtual Box

Agreed, but I am still getting the notification from Cinnamon upon initial login. That is what is puzzling. https://hhgtvg.bl3301.livefilestore.com/y3mHXyEhkD9mHCZHWWPGkyNM2KzyD3si9MS1Bt4Iz4ALJEjHAiSmG2bU6q-flpyr9sThh3D8edVTSO-nF07OO6hZqxPYq7deFe7qQcB4QLyz-Pczejcanqzmijeh4GYakeZqhN1KoLfVJpfyQp2MgotO...

Re: Sarah Cinnamon running without video hardware acceleration under Virtual Box

May have found the answer although it is a bit surprising to me. I have 3 VMs that I run from time to time. Today I started up Mint first (typically I start one of the others first). No notification appears about software rendering. So I shut it down, and start one of the others. Checking the curren...

Re: Sarah Cinnamon running without video hardware acceleration under Virtual Box

I thought of that. I have run apt-get purge virtualbox* followed by an install from the VBox ISO of the Guest Additions 5.0.22. After a successful installation and reboot, I still get the warning notification. Is there something else I can check to verify my Guest Additions installation or to verify...

Sarah Cinnamon running without video hardware acceleration under Virtual Box

Linux noob, and recent Mint beginner. After installing Sarah Cinnamon on Virtual Box, at login a message pops up saying that Mint is running in software rendering mode. I have the same VBox configuration that I ran Rosa Cinnamon with (128 MB Video Memory, Enable 3D Acceleration). Here are my results...
