Re: [SOLVED] 19.2 "Tina" Cinnamon MacBook Pro Overheating Locking Up Freezing

Hi fellow contributors. Thanks for all your input. I'm going to reply to a few of you below, then explain how I resolved my overheating issue. Via thx-1138 If you do indeed find a runaway gpe, eg. say gpe4F, you can then disable it in grub... xed admin:///etc/default/grub Modify there... That didn't...

Re: 19.2 "Tina" Cinnamon MacBook Pro Overheating Locking Up Freezing

Which OSX? As a 2011 device, the original operating system should be OSX 10.6 or OSX 10.7. Your device should have no problems with these OSX systems - except that they are of course completely obsolete... As an addition: A friend runs a 2010 iMac with an i3 processor under (High..?) Sierra without...

Re: 19.2 "Tina" Cinnamon MacBook Pro Overheating Locking Up Freezing

If your operating system freezes or crashes you have a serious problem - this is not common under Linux, nor under macOS. On my MacBook it was a dying hard disk that produced very strange effects - under both macOS and Linux: something like super-fast data transfer without any data, lost desktops -...

Re: 19.2 "Tina" Cinnamon MacBook Pro Overheating Locking Up Freezing

Have you also checked the interior for accumulated dust? +1. Also, I'd strongly advise replacing the thermal transfer compound between the CPU (and GPU, if discrete) & heatpipe assembly .. or get someone to do it for you if you don't feel confident. It's likely baked hard, especially as it's been t...

Re: 19.2 "Tina" Cinnamon MacBook Pro Overheating

If your MacBook is still in good condition, I'd invest in RAM and an SSD. In my MacBook (2009) I installed 8GB RAM and after the silent farewell of the original hard disk I installed a cheap 240GB SSD from WD. The effects are amazing... I would also try Mint MATE. Runs at least on my model a few de...

Thank you Pjotr. Most of those settings were optimized except for the windows tiling. I changed the setting and will run Mint for some time and report back.

Re: 19.2 “Tina” Cinnamon Wi-Fi Broadcom BCM4331 MacBook

That sounds good :) . It isn't necessary to do all steps, when your problem is solved by one of it. For example if disabling power management does the job, then you needn't disabling IPv6. And the alternatice b43 driver is meant to try, if the previous two steps can't solve it. And it's always good...

Re: 19.2 “Tina” Cinnamon Wi-Fi Broadcom BCM4331 MacBook

Hello Tortugaverde, thank you for all the exemplary information. I think, there are at least three things you can try out. The first two are disabling the power management or IPv6 (item 2.1 and 2.2): https://easylinuxtipsproject.blogspot.c ... html#ID2.1 The third one is to try out the b43 driver f...

Toggle Mic Mute Lenovo X1 Carbon

I have a 1st Gen Lenovo X1 Carbon. Switched from Ubuntu to Linux Mint 18 'Sarah' "Xfce 64-bit" and found my microphone mute button was not working. Everything else is locked-in. I did some research and found that I can go into PulseAudio Volume Control, select "Input Devices" and toggle "Mute Audio"...
