Re: Linux Mint 19 Login loop

I have experienced a similar behaviour once; the cause back then was a broken /home folder. Since you can log in via TTY1 (Strg + Alt + F1), please do that and run: cd ~ ls -a Then post the output here. If /home turns out to be broken, here's a thread that may help you fix it. https://askubuntu.com/...

Re: Full usb drive install that will work on anything

What I'd like is to plug it into any PC or laptop and have it run. Like carrying my own little PC. Note that in order to be able to do this, you may need to change BIOS/UEFI settings (e.g. disable UEFI to run in legacy mode, change the boot order, etc). Employers in particular will lock down the BI...

Re: 4th Computer: XP to Linux Mint CRASH

Did you check if you have the correct edition of Mint, i.e. 32 or 64 Bit? After all, we're talking about an older machine here whose CPU may only support 32 Bit. (This is just a hunch; afair Linux Mint x64 should complain during installation if you're trying to install it to an x32 machine.)

Re: Cinnamon 3.2.7 keeps crashing/thumbnail cache problem

I have encountered similar problems after some kernel updates (Cinnamon crashing or starting in software rendering mode). Reinstalling the NVIDIA drivers usually solved the problem for me.

Re: Shutdown is rebooting;

Since the OP has removed the [SOLVED] marker and I have some news that may be relevant, I'll take the liberty to post my findings here. Yesterday I installed the newest 4.15 kernel to try out a few things. It turns out the problem does no longer occur on my machine with kernel v4.15.0- 34 . Please n...

Re: [SOLVED] Shutdown is rebooting;

Might I ask you to remove the [SOLVED] marker from the topic? After all, the problem with kernel 4.15 hasn't actually been solved, but rather circumvented by using another kernel / version of the distro. That is a surrender, not a solution. ;) Personally, I would prefer to get to the bottom of this....

Re: Shutdown is rebooting;

I have tried the shutdown -Ph now and it just causes my system to stall before shutdown; and I have to cold restart it. I'm not a fan of this workaround anyhow. I want to power down my system the way it's meant to be, not use a hack to coax it into kind of doing that. Meanwhile, I've compared our s...

Re: Shutdown is rebooting;

I have the very same problem . What I've found out so far: The issue is not related to wakeonlan. I've turned that off immediately, still no improvement. The issue is related to the Linux kernel 4.15.* I've tried several versions of that kernel, but the results are always the same. Under 4.13.*, shu...

Re: (Solved) Epson Scanner not usable since update to Mint 19 - Pipe error

Hi phd21,

thank you ever so much for pointing me to the PPAs! I have updated gscan2pdf through the PPA. Now even I can even save scanning profiles again (which hadn't been working in the version I got from from the official repos).

Another thumbs up from me! :)

Re: (Solved) Epson Scanner not usable since update to Mint 19 - Pipe error

I appreciate that you're trying to help anyway, felemur. Thanks! :) --- I've solved the problem in meantime. While SimpleScan still won't do duplex for some reason, I've managed to get gscan2pdf to do it. Turns out it had the "Preview" scanning option enabled, which does not work with ADF / duplex s...

Re: (Solved) Epson Scanner not usable since update to Mint 19 - Pipe error

I am aware of the fact that I need the appropriate drivers for this to run, and I have them installed. They used to work properly under Mint 18.3 (Ubuntu 16.04 basis), and since pretty much everything except for duplex works as it should, I was hoping this might be a minor settings or config issue, ...

Re: (Solved) Epson Scanner not usable since update to Mint 19 - Pipe error

I'm coming back to correct myself. Unfortunately, the problem isn't fixed entirely by the above solution. While the scanner is recognised by the system and can be used for scanning, duplex scanning doesn't seem to work. The problem occurs with scanning software of all kinds, both SimpleScan and gsca...

External hard drive freezes system

Hey everyone, I have an external hard drive (with NTFS as the file system) which will freeze my Linux Mint 18.3 system upon being plugged in and auto-mounted by the OS. More precisely: what freezes must be Cinnamon, because the mouse pointer can still be moved and TTY is still available, so not ever...

Re: Fresh install with existing /home on LVM/LUKS-encrypted partition

Problem it seems you did not install Mint 19 in sda5, kernel 4.10.0-38-generic is not the Mint 19 kernel Actually, that is precisely what I want. As I wrote in my initial posting, I have gone back to Mint 18.3, which has 4.10 as the default kernel. Following your instructions, I have managed to get...

Hello everyone, after a bit of a misadventure with Mint 19 (no drivers from vendor yet, not LM's fault), I want to revert to 18.3 with a clean install. However, I want to keep my /home directory, which I have moved to a separate, LVM/LUKS-encrypted partition. I don't want to format it, but instead r...
