Try:

Code: Select all

 sudo service network-manager restart 
This does not work to reinstate the wired connection. The problem persists.

Re: Screenshot buttons not working

I have the same issue with 18.3 XFCE. After install pressing PrintScreen for the screenshot utility works fine. But after some time it stops working with PrintScreen . As a matter of fact that is the reason I found this thread. I have experienced this before on several installations and now it happe...

Re: Frequent loss of wired and wireless network connection

I did update to 4.15.0-126 and even to 4.15.0-128 but unfortunately the failing connections persist.

Try updating your kernel to 4.15.0-126 & see if that helps.
It's in the updates but I wasn't having confidence to install it.

Re: Slow boot because of "starting tell plymouth to write out runtime data"

Thanks again Damien.
Lots of things happened, I moved, could only use the notebook.
I just started work on a network in my current home.
I hope to get up a work room with desktops soon.
The avatar is not it, I should think of something better.

Re: Frequent loss of wired and wireless network connection

Ooh that close...
I stopped with both 19 and 20 because for me essential things were missing or not working and I had no time to sort it out.
Also I need samba.

Re: Slow boot because of "starting tell plymouth to write out runtime data"

Thank you Damien.

In the meantime I realised I had not adapted the swap partition. I commented out the original and entered the current swap into fstab and that seems to have fixed it also.

I will still apply your fix but could there be any side-effects to it?

Frequent loss of wired and wireless network connection

On my Lenovo notebook running Mint 18.3 XFCE-64 both wired and wireless frequently loose the network connection. They still appear as connected, but there is no connection possible, not even to the router by entering the ip. Disconnecting and reconnecting from the network menu in the taskbar usually...

Slow boot because of "starting tell plymouth to write out runtime data"

This is about a Mint 18.3 XFCE-64 I installed in August on an Asus workstation and now cloned to a SSD in my Lenovo notebook. The first boots were fine but soon it became very slow and stuck for a long time on "starting tell plymouth to write out runtime data..." (I do not use quiet splash...

Irfan View in Wine problems

On a new 18.3 XFCE64 install I have problems with Irfan View running via Wine. I installed this Mint on a new SSD, later connected the existing hard disk drives. On the 'old' Mint I had installed Irfan View in Wine and set it as default viewer for jpegs. This works flawless. In the new situation I i...

Re: Mouse pointer size varies

I still have this issue more or less. On one system most of the times it's how it's set, on another system the size varies continuously, even within one window. I had applied above suggested settings in Dconf-editor, which was promising but not the final solution. On a fresh Mint 18.3 the problem wa...

Re: Mint 20: restart button invisible after updates

On a fresh Mint 18.3 install I was confronted with the same: different power icons. How could it be that all my current installations had neat black/grey buttoned power icons, the new install coloured icons from a different style? I copied all icons from existing 18.3 to new 18.3, but alas, the icon...

Hi RV,

Was this one of the things you tried? You'll need to log out/in afterwards most likely.
It did the trick, thank you very much MrEen!

Compiz with vertical deskbar not recognized by windows

This is about Mint 20 FXCE.
The panel is in deskbar mode and vertical on the left of the screen.
After activating Compiz any window that is opened is not lined up at the panel but goes behind it and is lined up at the edge of the display.

I have downloaded and extracted from the compressed file Waterfox-current, latest version. However clicking the supposed 'waterfox' executable doesn't do anything. It doesn't appear as an executable to the system apparently, as when clicking it the system pops up an 'open with' window. Downloading a...
