Try this. Install dconf-eitor. Open it and navigate to org -> cinnamon -> settings-daemon -> plugins -> power. Check the following values: idle-dim-battery and idle-dim-time.

Brightness keeps changing when switching between battery and AC

I checked the power management options but cannot find any setting responsible for this.

When I unplug my AC cable, it lowers the brightness.

How can I turn this off?

[SOLVED] Skype always autostarts on boot?

Each time I open Skype, it adds itself to the startup applications.

I remove it from the startup applications but the next time I open Skype, it does the same thing again.

Anyone else with the same annoying problem?

I use version 8.13.0.2.

Re: Mint 18.02, Ubuntu 17.10 repo als PPA hinzufügen

was passiert dann mit dem nativ installierten kmail, wenn ich ein flatpack stattdessen nehme? kann das deinstalliert werden ohne dass es kontact zerlegt?
Snap/Flatpak/AppImage arbeiten normalerweise völlig unabhängig vom .deb Paket.

Re: Mint 18.02, Ubuntu 17.10 repo als PPA hinzufügen

dem zu folge wäre es das beste zu warten bis es ein mint upgrade gibt um damit das gesamte system zu aktualisieren
Oder sich entsprechend ein Snap, Flatpak oder AppImage suchen. :-)

Re: Cinnamon crashes on startup, can't restart

I would try LM 18.3 Xfce instead of LM 17.1 Cinnamon.
Indeed. Or 18.3 MATE.

Re: new tabs on firefox

What exactly do you mean by that?
Firefox uses a new technology called Quantum since version 57. I was curious to know whether Palemoon uses it as well.

Re: Skype not working anymore Updated

Is this now a common Skype issue? I notice for some people Skype works still while reading on the Microsoft site for Skype maybe bugs and issues seem to be a problem now.
Yes, this new Electron-based Skype generally still is very buggy...

Re: Teamviewer 13 not installing in Linux mint 17 qiana(32 bit)

Download the deb file from here and proceed:

https://www.teamviewer.com/en/download/linux/

Gdebi should open the deb file and prompt you to install.

Do you still get any error message when doing it that way?

Re: Cinnamon crashes on startup, can't restart

Recently, I powered it up and I got the "Cinnamon has crashed" message. Using fallback mode isn't terribly useful, I get blank windows and such. Probably a problem with your AMD/ATI graphics driver. Have you already tried a different one? https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/AMD Side...
