Re: Cinnamon crashing - GPU Hang

thx-1138 , how did you get back to the 21st century, didn't like it much in the 25th I'm sure! OK, you wrote, "Did you updated Mesa from Update Manager? Current version is 18.0.5." So yes, that is now done. Had to figure out that Synaptic has different icon for upgradeable packages, and then how to ...

Re: Another Desktop Setup

Seems to me I've seen a lot of questions lately regarding issues with Cinnamon and Nvidia graphics cards. You may want to consider using MATE instead as it's a more stable GUI. If you're using a GeForce card you may want to be prepared to reload your graphics driver from the Nvidia downloads page. ...

Cinnamon Mint compatibility and comments for the following projected assembly appreciated. Processor: Intel Core i7 3770k RAM: ...

Even though no one came to your assistance, I for one am grateful that you posted updates. A friend has a similar problem with his Samsung monitor and Maya Cinnamon. Still researching and working to solve his problem.

Re: Low disk space on root [Not exactly SOLVED]

Rather than trying to resize /, just reinstalled. It was easy since /home was its own partition. Made / 25GB. After some days with the new install, / has 77% free space.

So, my /usr size of 4.1 GB is not excessive. k4dirstat looks good and it is now installed. When I run it on /, it includes /media. W...

The ones that would not save now do not open. Looked around and found very low disk space on /. The 80GB boot disk has a 15GB parti...

Re: Update Manager: Failed to lock /var/lib/apt/lists/lock

By "purging the application" I mean removing it and reinstalling it. The purge part removes the system config files for the app, as opposed to simply "removing" the application. You can do this one of two ways, one command line and one in a GUI. Command line (from a Terminal): sudo apt-get purge mi...
