Change mouse wheel scrolling distance (3 lines instead of 1)

Is there a way to change the amount if lines scrolled with the mousewheel? It seems to be set at 1 but I prefer it at 3 lines. Google didn't provided me with a answer other that a tool called imwheel that I currently use. Unfortunately, the side effect that I have with the Vivaldi browser is that wh...

Re: [Help] Taskbar & menu not loading (also missing window borders!)

Did you run this and did you now get an empty output? The only thing that comes up now is /home/sojiro/.pia_manager/log/openvpn.pid But that one doesnt seem important. It was also fixed earlier today but come back again. So if the permissions fixes didn't fix it and it runs in a new user account, y...

Re: [Help] Taskbar & menu not loading (also missing window borders!)

Is this true? No, it will not help. Do it this way: Mark the following command completely and make sure, that you do not miss any sign, than press ctrl-c find /home/$SUDO_USER ! -user $SUDO_USER -exec chown $SUDO_USER:$SUDO_USER '{}' \; Open a terminal and enter sudo -i and press the Enter-key; you...

Re: [Help] Taskbar & menu not loading (also missing window borders!)

Well, zero errors now with the command.

Not at home so can't restart my laptop. Did my edits currently with teamviewer. Will report back tonight to see if it now boots as it should!

Re: [Help] Taskbar & menu not loading (also missing window borders!)

I am manually fixing the rights on the files/folders by comparing a correct folder rights and applying those rights to the other folder that was somehow attached to root.

Same with the files. Going good so far.

Re: [Help] Taskbar & menu not loading (also missing window borders!)

Google told me that the following should fix the rights on the home directory: find /home/user -type d -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 0775 find /home/user -type f -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 0664 Is this true? And why are there 2 lines for it? I know that 0775 and 0664 has to do with the rights but why 2 and...

Re: [Help] Taskbar & menu not loading (also missing window borders!)

I logged in with the guest account and that one is working fine. If a guest account works without issues but your main user account doesn't that is typically an issue in the user home folder. That would be why Cosmo asked for the results of find $HOME ! -user $USER -type f That should not return re...

Re: [Help] Taskbar & menu not loading (also missing window borders!)

Well, software manager works thanks the the command:

Code: Select all

sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude install gtkorphan
Found at: https://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/482

Still, no permanent solution yet to my issue.

Gotta love how easy it is with Linux to break a desktop.

Re: [Help] Taskbar & menu not loading (also missing window borders!)

Alright, since I also recently installed Mint on my desktop PC, and with the cinnamon replace command giving me a somewhat working Mint, I decided to compare settings with my desktop PC. I noticed that Cinnamon Settings Deamon - xrandr, wasn't there at startup apps, so I manually copied over the set...

Re: [Help] Taskbar & menu not loading (also missing window borders!)

Reboot worked but still the same issue. Atleast I can do the command to get a more working laptop but still strange that something at boot is messing things up, but what?

Re: [Help] Taskbar & menu not loading (also missing window borders!)

I did reinstall all cinnamin- packages there where on my system. It even had to download a few megs. Going to try and see if I can reboot.

Re: [Help] Taskbar & menu not loading (also missing window borders!)

I was a bit too quick to jump the gun. When I close the terminal everything is gone again. Do I reboot to have it stick or?

Re: [Help] Taskbar & menu not loading (also missing window borders!)

No. That shouldn't have anything to do with the problem you are seeing. Cinnamon isn't running. You can try running cinnamon --replace in the terminal to see if Cinnamon starts or what errors that shows. I have yet to reboot my laptop, but that fixed it! I can see my menu and taskbar again! Such a ...

Re: [Help] Taskbar & menu not loading (also missing window borders!)

A theme shouldn't be able to cause that issue. It looks like Cinnamon and muffin aren't running. You can always check the contents of ~/.xsession-errors to see if anything stands out. I havent yet checked xsessions errors but I did manage to launch the settings through the terminal, and then I trie...

Create a fresh new user account for checking. I logged in with the guest account and that one is working fine. I did do a graphics upgrade driver wise but that had no luck.

[SOLVED] Need help resizing linux partition!

After installing Mint on my main PC next to Windows, I later realized that Mint only chose to take 8GB for itself and use 16GB for the swap... Anyway, I am now running on the live stick, resized the disk that was part of the windows side (but not on the OS disk). I now want to give these extra 40GB ...
