Re: 4.13.0.26 kernal update crashed LM 18.2 Cinnamon

I also attempted to update my LM 18.2/Cinnamon with the 4.10.0-42-generic kernel to the 4.13.0.26 kernel. During the install's compile phase, I briefly saw the message "ERROR! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 4.13.0-26-generic (x86_64) Consult /var/lib/dkms/ndiswrapper/1.60/build/make.l...

Re: Strange occurrence on Desktop

This happens to me as well with the same distro and desktop -- but only when I hover the mouse pointer over the Show Desktop icon next to the Menu button on the task bar. All windows become 90% transparent. I think that is what it should be doing. Maybe your Show Desktop icon thinks the mouse is alw...

Re: Cinnamon crashes on login - where to look?

Any information on how I can use Intel drivers? Well, from your "Linux Mint on Clevo P650RE" thread, I see you were already using the Intel drivers. I'm not an expert at anything here and I don't have LM 18 running anywhere here yet -- I'm happy with 17.3, the only hiccup being the incompatible Nvi...

Re: Graphic Problem 1024x768 instead of 1600x900

Extrapolating from your log info, you are running Linux Mint 17.1 with kernel 4.4.0-47-generic. Not sure if this has any bearing on your problem, but I've seen cautions posted about using the most recent kernels with older hardware. I think support for older HW is no longer there. Maybe the OS is no...

Re: Cinnamon crashes on login - where to look?

There are a couple problems with the latest update for those who have Nvidia drivers installed, even if they are not using those drivers. Something in Cinnamon conflicts with some new way to do something in the latest drivers, for one thing, and that issue has been addressed/fixed by Clem in the thr...

Re: Problem with 367.57 nvidia driver [solved]

To my surprise, it reported something like "upstart detected" and that it removed some rc.d links. Also it mentioned that it shifted (from or to, can't remember) gdm-mdm (or something like that). That puzzled me, but apparently nothing was damaged: I rebooted and noticed no differences. Thanks for ...

Re: LM 18 Graphics glitches

Good. I forgot that the default is generally not the proprietary driver. I guess the AMD proprietary driver may not be supported in LM 18 but that doesn't mean it doesn't work. If you have a moment, please edit your first post and add [SOLVED] to the title to help others like yourself. Either way, t...

Disclaimer: I am absolutely not part of the solution: don't have LM 18, never used KDE, not running AMD igpu. So I'm happy to jump in here with a shot in the dark. Stay low, okay? LM 18 is based on an Ubuntu that no longer supports the currently-existing proprietary AMD graphics driver (something li...

Re: Problem with 367.57 nvidia driver [solved]

I'm having no issues with mdm or the driver itself working I probably had no (real) issues with mdm either. The driver was another matter. It might be that the 4.4 kernel I am now using is generally associated with systemd, so the driver installed routines that are unusable on my system. (Sound fam...

Re: Nvidia driver 367.57 not loading kernel module

Wild unqualified guess: The driver has to be recompiled against the specific kernel version. And even then it would require the registration to give it permission to work with the kernel in a "secure boot" scenario. A way to test this: Use the grub menu to select the 4.4.0-45-generic kernel when boo...

Re: Problem with 367.57 nvidia driver [solved]

I still wonder if the error message can turned off? Are you also on LM 17.3 with Cinnamon? Have you tried sudo dpkg-reconfigure mdm yet? You could look through the service startup folders for references to /bin/systemctl. I'd start with searching the /etc/init/*.conf files for systemctl: grep syste...

Re: KODI crashed on MATE 18

I didn't see anything unusual with your Xorg.0.log file. The scenario mentioned by AscLinux seems likely. There's a hidden folder called .kodi in home/ <your_user_name> directory (the ~ directory, your logged-in home folder). I don't have MATE, but you can toggle the showing/hiding of hidden files w...

Re: KODI crashed on MATE 18

Hi. I'm also new, so this might not be that useful. Your OpenGL support may be broken. Check your Xorg.0.log in your Log File Viewer to see. One log had an error with a bad memory pointer. The other had graphics errors mentioning X11 and GLX. Also, you may be running an older version of Kodi (15.2),...

You could try the Driver Manager. It should have Nvidia choices as well as the nouveau driver. The older Nvidia driver should work fine if it worked fine before the update.
