Linux Mint 18.3 and Sublime Text

Alright, I'll make it a quick one. I'm head over heels with Linux Mint, there's no way I'm going back to Windows. My problem is it freezes when I open up Sublime Text to write some code. Never right away, but within an hour or two. My question for that matter is two-fold: 1) How do I fix this? 2) Is...

Re: Linux Mint 18 "Sarah" weird freeze

Btw, what's the fastest way from 18 to 17.3 or Ubuntu if i choose to go that route.

Same procedure i did going from Windows to Mint 18?

Re: Linux Mint 18 "Sarah" weird freeze

For grins, see if you get the same problem running 17.3 as a LiveUSB - if not, then there's an issue with running 18 on your computer. If yes, then there's probably a problem with your computer that has surfaced at the same time you started using 18. You indicate the frequency of the problem has be...

Yes. I booted it live when i was trying it out. Before wiping my HD clean and installing Mint.

Would it make a difference now?

Re: Linux Mint 18 "Sarah" weird freeze

Methinks this is Cinnamon doing it. However, what is the nature of this crash? Does Numlock still work? Can you SSH in after it is crashed? I cant do nothing once it freezes. The screen just goes into cardiac arrest, and the only way out is the power button. Just had a crash going through my 'downl...

Re: Linux Mint 18 "Sarah" weird freeze

Gentoo might have to be the last resort. We'll see. Gentoo is a DIY Linux. Gentoo gives you tools, you build your own Linux. Lots of compiling, it is like hardware burn-out test. If your hardware survives Gentoo install it will last and run crash-free. Oh, i see what you're saying. Froze again, twi...

Re: Linux Mint 18 "Sarah" weird freeze

Not using Firefox. I deleted it. Google Chrome is what i use. Btw, this is exactly what i feared making that switch from Windows to Linux. Not being able to fix bugs or not even knowing where to start. Is there an alternative Linux OS that has no (or very little) history of crashing/freezing? Gento...

Linux Mint 18 "Sarah" weird freeze

The system literally froze while i was writing this post. Two times. Love "Sarah" would like to keep Mint 18. But. Firstly. About 8-10 times a day, i would left-click something at any given internet site, and the right-click window would open up. It's as if the OS is mixing up the two. Secondly, the...
