Re: Notification pop-up alert sound

Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon has an option under System Settings -> Sound -> Sound Effects -> Effects menu called "Showing notifications". Mine was toggled "off" by default, it's easy enough to turn it "on". After that, test notifications played a simple ping, just how you ...

Re: Window focus is utterly broken

btw, I also just tried switching to software rendering, which is better in some ways and worse in others. The windows flicker a lot and leave trails behind them when I move them - it's like it doesn't handle drawing updates well. But I can move them, so at least we know that that particular issue is...

Re: Window focus is utterly broken

I'd be happy to give that a shot, if only I knew how.
At any rate, thanks for helping me troubleshoot this.

Re: Window focus is utterly broken

It might not be, having asked the question i then recalled that one of the issues preventing widespread Wayland rollout was lack of compatibility with Nvidia proprietary drivers. But I guess you could of ended up using Wayland + Nouveau. I used Gnome3 with a Wayland backend - for sure - and with bo...

When you tried Gnome3 was that with a Wayland session or a X-server session?
actually, that's a good point. Manjaro Gnome's default backend is Wayland, so it would've been Wayland

Re: Window focus is utterly broken

The BIOS utility to which you linked me, @smurphos tells me that the "files do not match BIOS ROM," which makes me think that's not for my motherboard.
Also, I've tested with Mint Cinnamon 19.2 now, and it's just as broken.

Re: Window focus is utterly broken

Manjaro Settings Manager provides a GUI to install the latest 4.19 kernel. Alternatively if it's to painful to try and get that open and focussed from the command line you can use these commands logged in as your user from a virtual console. Definitely worth trying this - Coffeelake is Intel's code...

Re: Window focus is utterly broken

You say you've been having this problem for almost two years and it spans different Linux distros, but have you been using the same hardware all this time? I'm thinking it may be an issue with NVidia's (proprietary) video drivers for your card, or a compatibility issue of some sort between Linux in...

Did you verify the ISO before burning it?
I mean, no, but what are the odds that 5 different ISOs across 2 different distributions and 2 years are all corrupt? Especially when you consider that several of them are the same ISOs I used fine on old laptops/Virtual Machines.

Can you provide your inxi -Fxz whilst logged in as a regular user to the Cinnamon session - not from a root console.

Re: Window focus is utterly broken

2. User error. A mis-configured setting could cause issues. Accidentally deleting/moving/renaming an important file, could, too. Or something else along those lines. 3. A bad installation of the OS in the first place. I once had an issue that couldn't be reproduced on anyone else's system (or even ...

Window focus is utterly broken

I've been trying to get help with this issue for nearly two years now - Cinnamon just doesn't work at all. Here's my post from April 2017 (on a different board): https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=59&t=243969&p=1307971#p1307971 that nobody ever actually responded to except to say &...

Re: Window Focus is weird

Welp. Nobody ever responded, not sure if this is a dead OS or what, but I needed a usable operating system, so I installed Windows. Good luck to anyone else with the same issues, I guess, because I can't help troubleshoot this anymore.

Window Focus is weird

I don't really know how else to describe it. I have a (basically) fresh install, wiped the disk, version 18.1 Cinnamon 64-bit, nothing really unusual about the install unless an encrypted /home/$USER counts. I have an NVidia 980Ti, and the proprietary drivers from the "Hardware" settings m...
