Re: on-screen keyboard crashes

I should add, it doesn't crash when I open the on-screen keyboard, only when you try to type something...anything. Alt-F2 R restores function (without the on screen keyboard)

on-screen keyboard crashes

Asus zenbook flip (2 in 1 laptop), mint 18.3. Works beautifully, in laptop mode using the hardware keyboard. Recently the on-screen keyboard started to cause Cinnamon to crash, whether it's in laptop mode or tablet mode. Looking for reasons why (presumably an update but I don't know how to find out ...

[SOLVED, sort of] Acer Aspire one installation fail (XFCE)

A friend has had to go into hospital so I thought to loan her an old and redundant Acer netbook. A while back and in an idle moment I installed 17.3 cinnamon on it, which ran, slowly (not surprising really), but it ran, better than the original Windows 7 starter version. Yesterday I tried to replace...

Re: asus laptop

I've installed mint 17.x and (later) 18.3 on both an Asus K52F (core i3) and also on a UX360UA (Zenbook flip, i5 skylake). No problems installing or getting them to work. The Zenbook has a hi res touch screen and is a 2-in-1, and runs like clockwork (fast clockwork), including the touch screen, scre...

Re: Software that you would like to have for Linux

What software would you like to be available for Linux? Not only alternatives to Windows soft, but also specially for Linux? Lightweight Amazon Kindle app. Which can read the stuff I bought off Amazon. Sorry if someone's mentioned this before...or if it is available. The cloud reader works but is a...

Re: Trying to set static ip address

I found the easiest way to do this was to let the router award whatever IP address it wanted, then tell the router to make this a static IP address for that computer. Worked across three linux and three windows machines which will now all talk to each other.

"Flight mode" on Asus zenbook

My Zenbook has a keypress (Fn+F2) for flight mode. Pressing this turns off Wifi as it should but pressing it again turns both Wifi and bluetooth on, even though bluetooth was off beofre the first button press. Bug?

Maybe I was lucky but all the function keys worked as expected "straight out of the box" on an Asus UX360UA

Re: HP Envy F Key functions not working on kernel 4.13.0-36

Anyone else seeing your F key functions (vol up, vol down, etc) stop working entirely on kernel 4.13.0-36? I reverted back to 4.13.0-32 and everything is good again. I've also gone back to -32, but for another reason. With -36 I was getting a black screen and completely unresponsive when trying to ...

Re: Duplicate desktop folder (Cinnamon)

I guess I had better add that this was (is) a fresh install of mint 18.3 after the upgrade from a previous version failed. Dual boot with WIN10, though I seldom use that these days.

[Solved] Duplicate desktop folder (Cinnamon)

My fault, fat finger and sensitive touchpad problem, I managed to drag & drop my desktop folder from Home into my Templates folder. I copied it back to Home, but couldn't delete the copy under Templates (even with elevated priviledges). So now I have two desktop folders. The system still works fine ...
