Re: "Cinnamon has crashed"

You're absolutely right... it booted fine to the login screen and looked normal. As soon as I entered my login the GUI had gone; a mouse arrow and that was it
No matter, I was going to reinstall anyway, which is now all done so I'll mark this "solved", although it kind of isn't :)
Thanks for your help

Re: "Cinnamon has crashed"

Crashed again yesterday (9th) on updating. System Reports has _usr_bin_cinnamon.1000.crash from 9th Feb
What happens if I uninstall Cinnamon using Synaptic? Does it adopt the fallback GUI? I will back up first :)

Re: Linux Mint 19.1 “Tessa” Cinnamon released!

Clean install of 19.1; icons and the "look" is so much clearer. Seems to tick along more quickly on my old laptop compared to previous versions
