Re: Touchscreen input rotation - SOLVED

Here is the solution to your problem, adapted from another forum to Dell XPS 13. The xinput device numbers change for each machine and can be obtained by typing xinput on the terminal and reading the output. For Dell XPS 13, device numbers 12, 13 and 20 are found to work well. Put the following into...

Re: Touchscreen input rotation

Hi RandomByte, I find exactly the same as you are describing. It's a pity, rotation is useless in these conditions. My hardware is a Dell XPS 13 9365. I would like to add that both the touchscreen and the mousepad input do not take rotation into account. One may agree or disagree about the latter, b...

Re: Broadband USB Key doesn't work with Mint 19

Thank you! Yes, I confirm, it's exactly the same problem. After adding the connection as you suggested, the network manager allows also setting its parameters. From my point of view it looks like a missing permission or mismatched parameter in a call in the GUI interface. The operating system works ...

Broadband USB Key doesn't work with Mint 19

Hello everybody, I think I have found some problem in Mint 19. I have a Huawei E1692 Broadband USB key that used to work flawlessly with LMDE2 (and Windows 7/8/10) and I can't manage to use with Mint 19. I tried on a Dell XPS 13 laptop, a Dell minitower PC and a HP Pavilion. I tried kernels 4.15 and...

Re: How to enable hibernation with swap partion on Linux Mint 19

Hello, I am sorry to say this doesn't work for me. I do get the button but hibernation does not work at all. I have been running LMDE2 for more than one year and then decided to move to Mint 19 to get newer software. LMDE2 with kernel 3.16 had some glitches but in the last 6 months hibernation worke...

Re: Nvidia driver breaks every time Xorg or Cinnamon updates

For my personal experience, I recommend using the NVidia binary driver. Yes, Cinnamon breaks every now and then with updates, but running the installer again solves (I never delete it). Specifically, the GL extensions are missing and that's why Cinnamon breaks (MATE doesn't). Reinstalling just the d...

[SOLVED] XRDP + VNC unstable

The xrdp package that is provided in the repositories doesn't play well with Xvnc sessions. It seems it is an old version affected by a bug consisting in multiple threads trying to write in the same socket. In practice, the session closes abruptly with modest as well as heavy loads of GUI applicatio...

Re: Resume fails and switch to restart

This appears to be solved with kernels 3.16.0-3-amd64 and 3.16.0-4-amd64, recently provided by kernel upgrades!

Re: VNC and RDP are practically unusable

The origin of the problem is still obscure to me. Key mappings look correct. Using xev to check the events it seems that character mapping is done "top-down", i.e. with respect to the outermost window. Of course, because at top level "s" shows the menu, this prevents any other inner-level mapping. H...

VNC and RDP are practically unusable

I have two workstations that are occasionally accessed from remote (doing work from home). I installed VNC and RDP on both, and I find the same big problems on both: 1) Cinnamon crashes and falls back, presumably to MATE; 2) In this fallback environment, if I press the "s" key (lowercase) in whichev...

[SOLVED] Resume fails and switch to restart

I see in my Mint LMDE2 after hibernation resume does not always work. Sometimes it resumes, sometimes during startup it reboots and switches to a fresh restart. So far I haven't been able to identify a condition that triggers the failure of resume. The number of applications seems not to matter, and...
