Re: Cinnamon Crash/Fallback Mode

I am at the point now where I am going to download Mint XFCE or MATE to see if that makes a difference. If I can get out of "laptop mode" and a proper 1920 x 1080 resolution that will be a huge improvement.

Re: Cinnamon Crash/Fallback Mode

I'm going to try this as soon as I get home from work. Isn't this booting into an incredibly old kernel? Doesn't that come with some serious security and compatibility issues? Either way I will try this. 4.4.0-116 is the last from that series.

Cinnamon Crash/Fallback Mode

Hello everyone! I found a few similar issues searching the forums but following the instructions were confusing, and in some cases made things worse. I ended up having to do a fresh install and resign to posting my own thread. As the title implies, on boot Cinnamon crashes and I am stuck in Fallback...
