Re: How to Determine Meltdown & Spectre Vulnerability

My question is has Linux Mint been updated to mitigate the vulnerabilities ? I use 18.3 and check for updates each day. I assume a patch has been released. :)

Re: shutdown: gnome-keyring-daemon still running

Same problem here with the gnome-keyring-daemon not closing on shut down. Seems like a fairly common issue. It only happens periodically here but on two different systems.

Re: 18.3 Cinnamon 64bit nemo moves icons bug

Yes the instructions were perfectly clear here and I'm no Linux expert. :wink: Sadly I'm still getting jumping icons. One boot everything will be fine, the next boot icons have moved around. Once all the non system icons changed size. Hopefully the bugs will get worked out in a soon to be released u...

Re: Firefox57.0.1 and Youtube?

I also use Chromium and that will load and play Youtube page and videos. Good, you eliminated your system as the possible cause and narrowed it down to Firefox. Proper procedure. :) I wonder what there is in common with the people who are having problems playing Youtube videos. Same Videocard/drive...

Re: Firefox57.0.1 and Youtube?

What would a Profile have to do with YouTube videos not playing ? Anyway the first thing I would do is try another Browser. The OP already said "I disabled all the extentions in an attempt to illiminate them one by one". So the next logical step would be to try another Browser. It's the on...

Re: Firefox57.0.1 and Youtube?

What about trying another Browser ? If the YouTube videos load in another browser that would point to an issue with Firefox. If they still don't load that would point more to a system issue. Worth a shot just to see..... :)

Re: 18.3 Cinnamon 64bit nemo moves icons bug

Just wanted to post that I tried Align to Grid (Vertical) and when I just booted this system up the Icons remained in their proper positions. So it looks like the issue only affects non-aligned icons. The trouble is that using Align to Grid the icons are all too far to the right and can't be moved. ...

Re: Linux Mint 18.3 “Sylvia” Cinnamon released!

I had to manually chose to update from the Edit drop down menu in the Update Manager. There was an option to "Update to Sylvia". That's exactly how it should go and how Clem announced that it would go. Nice and easy, isn't it. Oh I see, thanks. I thought I had discovered some deep dark se...

Re: 18.3 Cinnamon 64bit nemo moves icons bug

Thanks for submitting the bug report. Something went wonky between 18.2 and 18.3 so I'm sure the developers will track it down in no time.

For the record are we all using Cinnamon or does this bug affect other DEs as well ?

18.3 64 Bit Cinnamon here. :)

I came here to start a thread on the same subject. Icons move after every boot or F5. Is there an official bug report forum or will this thread get the attention of the developer ? I'm not sure of the proper procedure for reporting bugs here. :) it happens with the Computer, Home & Network icons...

He certainly knows more about it than I do. All I know is what I read on the Internet.

Re: Firefox 57 - Quantum

Yep I'm sure. I'm happily going back and forth with a single right mouse click as we speak. But that's right click/hold. About the only gestures I use are page back / forward. Click Drag Up works to open a new tab but I can not get Down / Right to close the current tab. But Basic Gestures 1.2 works ...
